Episode 25 - Children of the Force

Children of the Force
Episode 25
Season 2 Episode 3

Reaction: NEUTRAL

Meh, this was kind of a disappointing end to the trilogy. Technically, it was a good episode, with the best Bane imagery we've had and a decent plot. Unfortunately, the coolest point of the episdoe was Sidious talking about his force-sensitive army, which fails. The episode ends in ANOTHER neutral draw, with the good guys averting disaster but failing to make any gains.

It wasn't a bad episode, I just see no reason to be highly excited about it.

THE GOOD
Ashoka being gut-checked Happy Dance

Bane imagery: This really takes the cake and was one of the highlights of the episode. Seeing him in clone armor, without his hat (makes him really reminiscent of the Cantina Scene Duros which is a nice continuity in itself), him sneering under the Jedi cloak was undoubtedly one of the best and most intimidating character portrayals of the series. I was actually a bit frightened. That execution was flawless. Another good scene was his interrogation, when he pulls back and forth into the shadows. Comparing this scene to the Gunray interrogation in Cloak of Darkness shows how far this series has come. Banes voice acting was very convincing too.

No one ever told me the Sith had a passion for interior design.

“Do you really believe that?” Its nice to see even plushy pink Gungans can be interrupted by reality. I wouldn’t have expected that first season.

I love how Sidious’ holocron moved through the Baby’s Sith crib.

The “trap scene was cool” LAZERS.

Ashoka using the force to determine where the children are...with the camera spin and good sound effects. NICE.

THE BAD
Last time I checked...clone helmets cant be punched off...

Admiral Fail...no wonder he becomes an Imperial. THE EMPIRE’S FINEST!

Its OK..but since when does Anakin inform the council and fold his hands behind hsi back when he gets mad?

OK, whats with the “force sense which 4 children in the galaxy are going to get kidnapped”? They can do this but cant tell they’re all going to die in a year? Its just weak and a poor plot device, even though they did not all precisely agree and worked in Anakin’s panic reflex. Anyway...we just wen BACK to 2 planets we have already visited...and I still don’t know why Rodia, of all places, has domes

Obi-Wan? Breaking and entering? And why does Bane wait around just to prove he is got the kid? Seems an unnecessary risk on his part...

...to bad Ashoka hasn’t been shot yet. You’d think Bane would have better aim.

Sidious was a bit...animated...don’t you think?

Another non-loss for the Seperatists....FAIL. Everything is back to square 1.

THE UGLY
Since the last episode ended with Anakin and Ashoka getting off the ship...why does this episode start off with the same thing...a different way? We have dual continuities between episodes?!..let alone ones in the same story arc!?!

GET KENOBI OUT OF KI-ADI’S CHAIR ALREADY!

MustaFAR: Despite the advances in the series, I don’t think Mustafar was portrayed convincingly. Besides...WHO THE KARK BUILDS A SECRET BASE ON THE SAME REMOTE MOON, TWICE.

How did Bane get his cuffs off...AND HOW DID HE GET HIS HAT BACK?

WHATS NEXT?
Uhhh, did I switch to the SOAP channel?

I didn't like that they went to Mustafar. At all.

And again, I will just say in regards to the Jedi not sensing their impending doom, the Dark Side clouds those events as they are Palpatine's master plan. This is a bounty hunter stealing babies rather than Palpatine's direct actions.

His control of the Dark Side is rather great. I wouldn't go so far as to say he deliberately exposed his plans for making Muppet Babies - The Sith Edition... it helps that the Jedi had part of things figured out already with Bane stealing the holocron and the encoded crystal.

hmmm...regardless he fails a lot. I think it would have been very cool to start seeing Sith proliferation. "I forsee an army of force sensitive spies in my service"...but he cant see that it doesn't include the 2 kids infront of his hologram face?

I feel like they don't handle predicting things very well in the cartoon. I guess you could put it up to 'the future is always changing' as the reason Sids doesn't figure out that he's not going to succeed there.

Well I interpreted it as a reference to the Emperor's Hand... (don't know if this is EU so I just posted it)

Yeah. I knew he had something like that...but this would have just been a unique opportunity to develop it.

I think a better ending, assuming the Emperor (isn't he xenophobic anyway? why would he go for non-humans?) HAS to fail, would have been that the process or whatever he was going to failed and Anakin and Ahsoka find the dead children.

If thats too much, then maybe Sidious gets away with one kid.

Yeah, they really need to show that the Republic isn't always victorious...

I liked the scene between Skywalker and Palpatine in the latter's office and even the scene before it. I liked how Palpatine didn't want to include Tano in the conversation. The way he talked and looked at Skywalker was very reminding of the way he talks to him in ROTS.

Yeah it was nice. My only complaint about the scene is Palpatine needs a new outfit. He always wears that one.

Well, on the flip side, if he's just experimenting and seeing if it'd even successfully work without killing the kid, it kinda makes sense, knowing that fact.

Don't know about arming him, but a new outfit would be welcome. They make 'em for Padme, they should make 'em for him.

Nah, even padme re-wears the same stuff. Look at her in Hostage Crisis or Senate Spy. She had trilogy outfits on in both.

Ah, fair enough. How sad, they were always so sure to have her wearing a different outfit every scene in the films...
