Whadda ya mean? Ep3 is SW at least. Then it's not called ripping off... it means copying from before.
Not a great episode. It makes the entire Jedi-Sith thing kinda small now. Palpy just a puppet from higher forces... Why Anakin, the only one who can control the Dark Force Wielder, then submits to Palpy (a mere tool of the Force Wielder) is beyond me.

Anakin's corruption here is even more pathetic. At least in ROTS he has a potential reason to turn (preventing padme from dying), now he just says "do you promise me peace?". Like, WTF?
"Hey, Anakin, you will turn in a quite a bastard force of evil in the future"
"That's impossible, I would never do such terrible things!"
"Of course not, you just have to join me, an evil dark side user even more powerful, thus joining to the dark side and becoming the exact same thing you just saw"
"Ok, guess I will turn to dark side then"
I guess if I gave him 5 bucks he would turn as well. God, just the promise of 5 bucks would probably make him turn to the dark side. Talk about dedication...

I don't really see how this trilogy explained what bringing balance truly means. All it did was let us know what Anakin must do in order to bring balance: To let go of his attachments and hate (which we already knew). This trilogy was more about Anakin bringing balance within himself.
We are left knowing just as much as we did before this trilogy.

No, it wasn't. It showed higher force beings exist than Jedi and Sith and that Anakin is able to control them. That's weird... why submit to a Sith Lord???? Anakin would by this trilogy be much more powerful than Palpy. And indeed very turnable.
Did he? We first heard the prophecy in Episode I. By the time Episode III came out, the Jedi council started to think they had misread the prophecy. Wasn't balance achieved by reducing the number of Jedi & Sith to two each, really?

What throws me off is that "The balance is light side only" is an oxymoron. Something can not be "balanced" if there is only one component to it.
"The Daemon lied with every breath. It could not help itself but to deceive and dismay, to riddle and ruin. The more we conversed, the closer I drew to one singularly ineluctable fact: I would gain no wisdom here."
I love both of these characters, maybe one more than the other, but still... For once, it would have been great to have had characters not been looked down upon by the "movie purists" and have the characters that you respect and love not be trashed for simply not being in the movies. They would have been as canon as everything else you see in The Clone Wars. Ahhh, so close...
