It was definitely a set up episode to establish the planet and the main characters of this campaign. Though the sappy teen drama was annoying. The whole "the boy is mine" feels played with too much. Also the competition of leadership (Saw is a bit more overt, Lux is more subtle) was also a bit much. Could have drawn it out over a couple of episodes and let it grow organically (with both drama) .

Subtlety in Star Wars? Blasphemy!

I wouldn't be so quick to judge, this is most likely a set up for her fall to the dark side. As jedi cannot have emotional attachments, I can't see any other reasons for this element.

I thought it was a good episode, I'm hoping this usurper king guy will be expanded further, and become the villain of these couple of episodes. I'm not expecting anything amazing though, this is just another event in the Clone Wars, nothing special. I'm hoping that as the series goes on these will become less frequent, and episodes will be more main plot based, but who knows, this might turn out to be important.

I agree, but they have to ram those themes home to the kids, who won't pick up on it.

Sure, it's not one of the action loaded episodes, but still I liked it. Anakin got to say "Impresive, most impresive." Also I liked the look of the world and the rebels looked like world war 1 soldiers, which I also liked.

Indeed, its a good episode. And I think i can see its importance to the main plot, by developing the character of Lux Bonteri who looks to be a main one, unless he runs off with that Onderonian girl or dies

Episode wasn't bad, preferred last weeks due to the action. The rebels were disappointing, was hoping for something more like the beast riders in Tales of the Jedi.

you know, come to think of it, the main players of the rebels seem mighty young. And there are not a lot of them. They live in the wilderness...on an occupied planet...sounds awfully familiar...wolverines anyone?

I agree. I haven't watched much of TCW, and what I have watched I didn't much enjoy. I'd forgotten they shoehorned Darth Maul into the series until I saw the first episode of the season (why couldn't they just let him stay dead; and "Savage Oppress"....seriously? That's the best they could come up with?), so i didn't much care for that. However, I did enjoy this episode, and will at least try to watch the rest of the Onderon series (nostalgia FTW).
A well-built sniper rifle is a beautiful thing. Ours has two zoom modes, "Up close and personal" and "Hello, you're dead."-Sev

I sort of laughed when I saw the jedi master who died in the first episode still sitting in the jedi council meeting.. that was a bit awkward ... otherwise a pretty good episode.. love triangle sucks..
