Shatterpoint agrees. Unfortunately, George Lucas is a noob.

Yeah, the "I still can't hit anything" or the fact they don't even listen to direct orders annoys me so much.

The cartoons killed any chance of the battle droids being taken seriously.

The commando droids were pretty cool.

The television series is secondary canon; the stupidity of the droids is being exaggerated to appeal to the immaturity of your average child.

I think I watched the episode Rookies and all of the duels; I don't want to expose myself to modern newb shows. Power Rangers, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! (he's the king of games), the DCAU, and the rest of the shows I grew up with were frighteningly awesome. Little kids these days are growing up on shit.

I'm not fond of most cartoons. I'm particularly reproachful of anime. Only two 'cartoons' have ever attracted my attention: Gargoyles and ReBoot.

I was never a fan of the former - although in hindsight, it was pretty cool - and I've never heard of the latter.

ReBoot was phenomenal; it was a Canadian-based CGI television series that ran from '94 to '98, and then had a brief revival in '01, that detailed the 'lives' within a computer. For example, it personified viruses and sprites and pixels and anti-virus software, et cetera. The protagonist was a 'Guardian' by the name of Bob who defended the cybercity of Mainframe from viral threats. The show was really ahead of its time; it incorporated a great deal of humor and adult-oriented themes, especially later on. Ask Lightsnake all about it; he and I are huge fans of the show.

It also featured the voice work of the late Tony Jay as the virus Megabyte; the character is an extremely popular and well regarded villain on the internet.

They have all of the episodes on Youtube. It's 30 minutes per episode; want me to link you to the first one?

Basically because the CIS were cheapskates.

Battle droids did not possess independant computer brains Each battle droid possessed little more than a receiver by which they recieved instructions from a control station. Essentially they were remote-controlled toy soldiers with guns. None of them had any ability to think or react independantly.

Count me as amongst those fans, I loved that show.

Aside from Tony Jay's death, was there any reason they left the show in a cliffhanger? I found it hard to adapt to webcomics.

Tony Jay died in 2006. Mainframe (the company that created ReBoot) dissolved around that time.
