I think this post cost you the Kaggath...
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

What about those without Netflix?

I find this highly disappointing.. Why couldn't they have just put a new episode on starwars.com each week?

For those that don't know, you can get a free month trial to Netflix.

I've been a huge TCW fan since the film. I'm very happy that we'll get to see the bonus episodes.
If you're new to the series I think you should approach it with an open mind.
Don't dislike Ahsoka for acting like a young teenager, after all, that's what she is.
As the series progresses certain characters will transform.
Don't bail out on the series just because a couple of episodes are not your kind of Star Wars.
Some events or plot lines might seem boring but you'll understand their importance in later episodes.
The series will have occasional episodes made solely to appeal to the younger audience.
Don't expect the music soundtrack to be like the movies. They went with a different approach. But the music does get more cinematic later in the series.
The animation improves every season.
I think this series makes the films so much better.

Just wondering, around what point does the show start to get better? Just so that I have some beacon to look to while I'm braving the first couple seasons.
The show is great.

There are some eu changes which people don't like but all eu stuff was going to change.
Hours and hours of starwars storylines....awesomeness

Anakin is awesome in clone wars, they way he should be.
Ventress ad Ahsoka go through some major character development and I really love how both those chracters change

If you love starwars don't miss clone wars or the news rebels because it's the new canon

Really the cartoon was just a carton network over the top cartoon, it was pretty childish.

There are episodes aimed a kids in clone wars but there is also an entire war on mandalore which was epic, which regulates your hippy mandos (I didn't like them either), don't worry you get warrior mandos.

There are much more starwars like episodes in clone wars.

Just got get in there and watch them.

I've followed this since the movie (which my kids & I saw in theaters twice). While it's true some of the earlier episodes were kinda kiddy & silly (did she just say "Skyguy"?) Overall it was a great series. My kids (now age 12 & 11) became SW fans BECAUSE of TCW. Just approach it with an open mind, and chances are you'll enjoy it!

And for those without Netflix, it also comes on during Toonami on cartoon network. Sat night (Sunday morning actually...) at 2am CST

Awesome trailer. I'm really looking forward to the Yoda arc (And kinda interested about the whole Korriban/Morriband issues, even though the Sith have had 3 different homeworlds...)

I spied Kuat a few times in the episode, which might explain why the LucasFilm Story Group was credited in the Galactic Starfighter credits.

So pumped this is coming out! Had a major Maul kick going on during the final (well almost final) season 5. Hoping to see what happens with him and Palpatine/Sidious from that cliffhanger!

Pretty sure I read that the Maul storyline is being concluded in a comic series (one of the last Dark Horse is getting to produce) called Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir that is starting in May.

I believe (although I may be completely wrong) that the television episodes that would have covered Maul's storyline never got produced, and thus won't be part of the "Lost Missions" on Netflix.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.
