The following collection of episodes are some I’ve had on my mind almost since I started this series. Containing one of the more controversial changes of the Clone War’s new canon to the series, scrubbing away one of the most fleshed out and complex cultures in the franchise after the Jedi themselves: The Mandalorians.
When I started the first of these three episodes, I had the bad feeling that this batch might be a bad one. As it turns out though, the trio was just a slow starter. The episodes just getting better as they went along. And the more I watch this series, the more I realise that the series’s original characters are far more compelling to me than the already established ones. Which kind of makes sense if you think about it, but hey, let’s actually get into the episodes before I really go off on one.
I dabbled with the idea of talking about five episodes in a single upload this week, but I’m adamant that I’m going to stop writing 3000 word posts. Because that’s all I used to do and it destroyed me. Especially when this isn’t my full time job. So this part is going to be a little bit of a warm-up, leading into next week when we get into the meat of the battle of the bug planet.
