It feels like a million years ago I last watched these episodes. I’m not sure I’m really happy about having to split these four-parts storylines into multiple parts. I feel like I lose the train of the story between entires. The problem really is that I know for a fact that I’ll end up writing a 2500 word post every Monday if I end up talking about all four episodes in one go. But it seems like that’s how all of them are going to be working going forward.
Maybe I’ll just try it out for the next one and see how it ends up killing me or not. Anyway, I have a storyline to finish.
I’ve said this before, but some of the more interesting stories told in the Clone Wars series are the ones that actually take a step away from the war itself and look at some other part of the galaxy. These episode delves back into our favourite hive of scum and villainy and take a pretty unique stab at telling with no real recognisable face at its forefront. I mean, not really but you’ll get where I’m going with this.
When I first dove trio of episodes, the first of which was called “Evil Plans”, I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting a collection of stories about Hutts and bounty hunters. In a universe where objective evil does exist, the shades of grey cast over the criminal underworld seem to be getting a bad wrap when described as “evil”.
Not that I’m complaining, I love the criminal element of the Star Wars universe, so a few more episodes that focus on them are more than welcome in my book.
