    • In fact, I have never watched any televised or online Star Wars shows whether spin-off plot threads of the movies or the expanded universe of them, nor read of the expanded universe books or comic books and don't have any particular interest to consume them, I only watch and own the theatrically released episodes I (1) through IX (9) (yeah I'm sure you know from Roman to more normally commonplace Arabic numerals), on my Blu-Ray and DVD disc various combo sets, just saying.

  • FYI the chronological starting point is episode 16 of season 2. Look clone wars watch order.

  • My favorite parts of that series is only focused more on the clones and people that don’t have the force power. And you can see the struggle that they have and your deals that they’re dealing with. The clones like Rex and the other ones.They deal with Their characters develop more than most. It’s funny when you get an episode that it’s just one voice actor doing everyone at the same time and those are the best ones.

  • jarjar gets better in later seasons but can still be annoying.

    KentaroKentaro6 kun oldin
  • Ok lets get one thing straight before you continue on to following seasons, they are not all in order in fact some of the later seasons are so out of order that some of the events in the beginning seasons happen after some of the events in the later seasons but unless you are paying close attention you probably wont notice. they actually have a list on the net somewhere that does tell you the timeline order of the episodes but you don't have to care about it to enjoy the show. it is still an amazingly well done show.

  • “The body count is insane” Oh you have no idea! Not only do the battles have high body counts. But the individual kills are really inventive and graphic!

    Owen SmithOwen Smith7 kun oldin
  • I really like that The frist season dont hold back on The brutalness of war, The later ones is definently more brutal, but in The first season sets a good standart for The next ones. I was actually shocked and impressed at The same time when griveous murdered The jedi. Didnt expect that.

    Impossible MoviesImpossible Movies7 kun oldin
  • Heads up; the episodes are definitely NOT in order. In fact, there's an actual page on the official Star Wars website that shows the correct canonical viewing order of the episodes. If I remember correctly, the canonical first episode is all the way in the middle of season 3. Even in the final season that aired on Disney Plus, they were pulling this. Yeah, I have no idea what was going on with that either.

  • Oh God, PLEASE watch the Clone Wars series done by Gendy Tarkovsky at some point if you haven't watched it already! It's another great (albeit comparatively shorter) piece of Star Wars content and even features the first ever appearance of General Grievous.

  • As far as I know Star Wars the Clone Wars was one of Matt Lanter's first major roles. Him being Anikan's VA. Because of this he does start out a bit poor, but you can see the DRASTIC improvement of his performance throughout the show. By the end he was fantastic, and definitely, INFINITELY better than his Live-Action counterpart.

    Andrew CoeAndrew Coe14 kun oldin
  • You know Lucas wasn't hands off with the Clone Wars right, he just prefers to be the behind the scenes guy like on Empire and Jedi that's why he hired Foloni. That why he asked other to direct the prequels they just turned him down cause he likes to direct through the director which his top choices like Ron Howard bulked at. Foloni not only didn't mind Lucas's style but wasn't afraid to add his own input which is why he became Lucas's Padawan. Hell one of Lucas's kids (Katey Kucas) wrote some if the best episodes.

  • Me: Jesus give me the grace to not write a mean comment about Doug's criticism of Ahsoka. lol She was supposed to start out like that, it was planned from the very beginning and she has an INCREDIBLE character arc that Ashley Eckstien voices so beautifully. And her being young was planned too, to be a role model for young girls who kind of grow up with Ahsoka as she grows and matures and learns valuable lessons.

  • the war in a nutshell: the separatists want to leave the republic and form their own government and they invade planets to forcefully recruit them to their side to do this, while the army of the republic wants to stop them from doing that and keep the republic united.

  • Just to point out keep a mental image of the clones armor styles and how they act. A lot of clones who get a few episodes under their belts really become a part of the cast so to speak. Like in the beginning we just see a lot of rank and file shinier but by the end you'll notice that the officers, squad leaders and squad members are clones who you've seen and watched have been around since season 1

  • I watched the Clone Wars tv show before I watched the movie; I wish I'd done it the other way around because in season 1 we don't really get an introduction to Ahsoka, that was all shown in the Clone Wars movie; so for me I was like 'who's this lil girl and when did Anakin get a padawan of his own?' obvious questions someone would have if they didn't watch the movie 1st. So in short, my advice is to watch the animated Clone Wars movie 1st, then start the show

    Keilynn De LaFrancKeilynn De LaFranc15 kun oldin
  • It's been a few years since I watched Clone wars from the beginning so i can only recall general feelings rather than specific things. (I ended up watching it just around the time Rebels started airing - for context). I remember being kinda meh on season 1. I was watching it with someone and there were times I was like GO GO GO! and then we'd hit a point where I was there something else we can watch? I don't think I found Ahsoka as annoying as others, from the jump, but that may have just been because I was pre-invested in her journey so I knew she was going to grow up and get better and therefore I probably let a lot slide. I also don't remember thinking the VAs sounded like their RL counterparts at all....but maybe that's just me...

  • Every season has some kind of pointless filler episodes, and the first couple of seasons are just worse because they have more and the voice acting and animation improves later on. But the character development and battles are really good. And the series is patient in addressing some of the questions you raise about the clones and the war

  • "Anakin gets better through the show" his development is one of the strongest points of this show, makes his actions in RTS actually make more sense, I love his constantly revealing his darker nature while still being charming and heroic to most people. EDIT: I actually prefer watching it in chronological order, I found a list online and made some changes myself that made more sense to me.

  • I do hate nostalgia as a starwars fan im utterly unable to get into any of the cartoons (i wouldnt mind if they had the graphics of the cinematic trailers for starwras games)and i just nitpick on everything in it which is crazy cuz even if i hate something in starwars like a game or movie(i hated all the sequels and still watched em in theater and probably will again just cuz) ill still play/watch it i didnt like fallen order from the get go but still loved playing it and would again just cuz its starwars but because of nostalgia im unable to enjoy the cartoons without getting mad cuz im so used to either the video game universe or the live action universe aesthetic that the cartoons end up just looking corny to me and it sucks cuz i wanna be part of the fun i wanna see Ashoka’s story and be able to enjoy her more in the live action world but my nostalgia just wont let my brain get passed it im starting to see how prequel haters feel i for one loved 1-6 but that’s because i was born in 96 so im used to it but the way i see it is the prequel haters are in the same boat the change from the originals to the prequels then the sequels is just too far apart when it comes to aesthetic so it makes them just hate it

  • In regards to Jar-Jar, I'll say while he was *far* from a favorite in the show, he did have his enjoyable moments. I think it's because they were willing to go further with his physical comedy, and actually make some of it entertaining. In comparison, his appearance in the movies tended to be half-done attempts at best and mostly just came across as annoying with no payoff..... Though to be fair, that's a problem most characters in the movies have, where they never truly justified or earned their character arcs or inclusion in the movies. Most just felt like they were there to serve as plot points or "because we need this character", rather than actually existing as people within that universe. The media other than the movies has generally been a lot better at character writing and development.....

  • The Clone Wars film is a three-four part pilot episode that was made into a film at the request of George Lucas. It's not bad but releasing in theaters but way too much weight on it. Similar to Return of Jafar, it's much easier to enjoy if you view it more as a tv pilot than a film. You're missing much just the introduction of Ahsoka and Ziro the Hutt.

  • Do you think you could do a Nostalgia Critic review of the original Clone Wars micro-series that was created in 2003 by Tartakovsky (the guy who made Samurai Jack)? Since it was made between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith and it's become largely overlooked because of this The Clone Wars cartoon, I'd say it counts as "nostalgic" and I think it would be interesting to compare the two series that both tackled the Clone Wars in very different ways.

  • I usually don't get bothered by things this petty but I feel the need to point out in Star Wars they just call them Droids not androids. I believe in part it is because android implies they are humanoid and not all droids are. Also droid sound better than robot. Oh also with the battle droids they are kinda meant to be funny but I think it isn't because the technology is lacking it is just the big bad guys are cheap and build a ton. They are also terrifying enough in big numbers against anyone other than a Jedi the clone troopers who are pretty elite fighters. James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan was almost a voice duplicate and then moves into his own sound a lot too. Putting them next to each other later they don't sound that alike. Heck I even like JAT more.

  • All I'm gonna say is that I'm really glad you are watching this show finally. Its rightfully earned its place among the best of Star Wars, in my opinion. And as others have said, it retroactively makes the prequels so much better, which is pretty damn impressive.
