I’m kinda surprised, jumping into season 4, the series feels like it’s kind of regressed in some regard. These opening six episodes of the season seem to be going back to the tone and content of the earlier parts of the show. Albeit with much better art and animation. Being more of an anthology and less self serious about telling an ongoing story.
It’s not to say I’m disliking what I’m seeing, I just kind of assumed the series would continue getting darker and leaning into telling longer-form narrative as it aged. Although this season still has plenty to go to still get me all worked up.
I’m starting to grow a little bit concerned that these posts are just going to get longer and longer as I get deeper into them. It’s why I’m glad I’ve got a little bit of a breather for this one with only two episodes to talk about rather than three. It all just depends on how these multi-part storylines play out.

One of greatly utilised aspects of this being an anthology series is that it can string a series of seemingly different stories together, that are all tied together by a single narrative thread.

Here’ I’ll be talking about episodes 8, 9 and 10 of the first series, but if you want to catch up with what I’ve watched so far in this chronological journey of the Clone Wars, then look no further than this here link.
