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.
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.
