Season 5, it seems, has taken a few steps into the world of the strange and the experimental when it comes to its approach to storytelling. Something that has had pretty mixed results as far as I’m concerned. When you’ve been watching this series non-stop for months on end, it can be easy to get some form of tunnel vision with it.
That being said, I’m certainly happy that it isn’t simply telling the same old war stories that the first few seasons did. But in a way, it makes it seem like the people making the Clone Wars were already itching to grow beyond it at this point.
I decided to take a bit of a break after the end of December. It’s taken less than a week for me to get that itch and come back to wanting to write something though. So what better way to ease back into the habit than to get back into this long bloody series about the Clone Wars.
One that, if I’m honest, I’m getting a bit anxious to get to the end of. Not because I’m bored of the series or anything, but just to see how Ahsoka gets from where she is to where she was in the Mandalorian.
I’ve come dangerously close to missing an upload of the Clone Wars. But I’ve just watched these episodes and written about them straight away. Because hell with letting them settle and allowing myself to dwell on them for a while. Honestly though, these are pretty cut and dry episodes any.
