Its obvious you've only watched about 3 episodes.

I also feel like she is overpowered for a padawan, and sometimes she makes anakin in and obi wan look stupid which is kinda ridiculous. I did like the old clone wars series however as it showed much more action and the fights were way more epic than the ones in the new clone wars imo. So....Whats your opinion? What do you think of Ashoka?
By more epic you mean ridiculously over the top? Like mace windu clearing a whole droid army without lightsaber etc? :>

a damsel in distress is simply any female who is placed in a dire predicament who requires a hero to save her... While they, for the sake of an entertaining story, are generally young (and yes 17 is still very very young) it really has nothing at all to do with age

for god's sake this is a classic theme in world literature, art, and film... *** do they teach in school now?

she kinda has to for the story to work out and pretty soon... the series takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith which is only a 3 year time period... I mean they still have some time and I like the series but it's starting to edge into MASH territory

in case you don't get the reference MASH was a series about a US army hospital unit during the Korean War which lasted 11 seasons even tho the war actually only lasted 3 years... and before some says "well a season doesn't have to be a year" I will remind you they had a Christmas episode every season

Not to mention, it would only drive Anakin further closer to the darkside.

Beside, they need to establish her character as a dependable padawan(yet hothead and quirky sometime) on first season before other writer flanderize her as a damsel in distress.

Don't 'picking' her too much and you will be fine.
Also you need to remember that Anakin and Obi-Wan had previous experience fighting MaganaGuard Droids so they knew where the weak spots in the Droid's design were. I will say that I dont consider TCW series as cannon in any way. However I do think that the character does have potential in the long run. I know from the Lore that during the Clone Wars Anakin did train an apprentice, but I think they could have made Ahsoka less like Anakin was when he was a Padawan when they introduced Ahsoka in the Clone Wars Animated movie.

unfortunately Lucas has decreed it canon and it is actual considered by LL to be higher canon than all the EU novels, comics and games so no SW authors are allowed to contradict it (they made a new canon level called T canon for the series which is now above C (the EU) and right below G (the movies)) ... there is even talk about them retconing a brand new timeline for the clone wars era once the series is almost over to fix the few continuity errors

hell the last EU novel series even referenced an episode of the Clone wars series... the main villain Abaloth was tied into the Father, daughter and Son from the Clone Wars series...

I'm ok with the series in general except for one thing... and that is *********** Darth Maul coming back with robot legs... seriously *** I really wanna know how Obi-wan is gonna explain that one to Qui-gon's force ghost
