    AWESOME for kids AND adults, May 18, 2011

    My 6 1/2 year old son has gotten me helplessly addicted to the Clone Wars. We breathlessly anticipated the premier of Season 3, and boy, were we not disappointed! The episodes where (possible SPOILER?!) Darth Sidious orders Ventress to be assassinated were an awesome little interlude in the series. You actually find yourself rooting for Ventress in her quest to stay alive and exact revenge on Dooku for the betrayal. ‘Padawan Lost’ and the following episode, ‘Wookiee Hunt’, were an incredible way to end the season. The appearance of Chewbacca was so awesome, and a nice nod to us old school fans.

    What I like about the series is that, even though there is some violence depicted, it is not gratuitous. I feel that this show somewhat realistically shows what happens in a war. My son is taught lessons on the importance of honor, peace, and doing the right thing. Of course I, as his parent, strive to teach him these things myself, but it doesn’t hurt to have Captain Rex, Commander Cody, Obi-Wan, and yes, even Anakin (pre-Darth Vader, of course) backing me up! I also really appreciate the emphasis put on ‘girls can kick butt, too’. In the vein of Princess Leia, Ahsoka and Padme’ are cool chicks who don’t just sit around, waiting to be rescued. All in all, this series is amazing, and I highly recommend it. Being able to bond with my son over something we both really enjoy is always a great thing. Can’t wait for season 4 to start already!

    These Episodes Redeem the Prequels, July 7, 2011

    I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I DVR’d and then watched the entire season 3. Combine the technology and characters found in the Star Wars movies with the backstories and immersion of the Essential Guide books, and you’ve got the Clone Wars TV episodes. Yes, they are CGI cartoons, but they’re extremely well done – the Star Wars technology, the intricate stories never found in the movies, the soundtracks and the music. This is the Star Wars galaxy I was looking for in the prequels. Dozens of different planets, creatures and droids – all meticulously detailed and rendered. Aliens of all types. Action, with a minimum of Star Wars politics, and no awkward love stories. And these stories are dark and funny, perfect guilty pleasures for the Star Wars fan. Well done George Lucas – you can be proud of this new chapter in the Star Wars saga.

    I’m only going to speak here about how annoyed I am by the cheap, inconsistent packaging of Season Three. I have no doubts about Lucas’s reasons, but let me list them here, for clarity.

    1. They know we’re going to buy it.
    Honestly – who, having bought Seasons One and Two, is not going to buy Season Three? No one, that’s who. If they’d recorded these on consumer-recordable blu-rays and shipped ‘em in a brown paper bag, we’d still buy them. They know that.

    2. This release will not lure in any new buyers.
    On the flipside of point #1, no person who *didn’t* buy Seasons One and Two is suddenly going to buy this one, so Lucas & co know they don’t need to spend any more money to ‘impress’ new customers. Those people aren’t buying the show, and no amount of fancy packaging is going to change their minds.

    3. They’re going to double-dip us later.
    I don’t know about you, but I was really keen on seeing every season of this show lined up on my shelf in beautiful, foil digibooks. Now, I will be continuously annoyed when I see Season Three (and presumably Four, etc.) sitting there. Lucas knows this, and is counting on it. When the show finally wraps up its final season, expect a big ‘Complete Series’ box, with all the seasons looking lovely together, to the extent that looking at the mismatched seasons we already have will drive you nuts, and make you crave the ‘Complete Series’ box more and more.

    My son and I love the show itself; no complaints, really. But the packaging of this set just screams of penny-pinching, and makes me feel like I’ve been treated poorly.
