For the entire time I’d been watching the Clone Wars, this past year, I always wondered how they would eventually end it. How closely they would tie it into the events of the Revenge of the Sith.

And they answered me by doing it in just about the best way could possibly imagine.Continue reading “Star Wars: The Clone Wars Revisted – Part 50: Revenge of the Sith”
Any sane person would probably take a break from this series for the remainder of December. Seeing as how I’ve got a ton of top ten entries to be writing. I couldn’t do that though, I’m on a roll of not missing one of these Clone Wars uploads for months, and I would be crazy to try and get out of it now.
Plus, with all these new Star Wars series getting announced, I’m becoming increasingly aware that I need to catch up to Rebels after finishing Clone Wars if I want to feel like I’m up to date on everything.
Anyway, we’re into season 5.
It seems like an incredibly long time since the reveal of Darth Maul still being alive. An entire season and a half in fact. I’d wonder if I’d have been chomping at the bit for this plot element to return had I watched this series as it was coming out. Truthfully, while writing about these episodes, I kind of forgot all about Maul and his brother Savage Opress.
It’s cool to see them back though, in no small part due to how much the series itself throws onto this event. They treat it like it’s a big deal.
