In this collection of episodes we get a look at some different perspectives of the Clone War, and violence in general. Despite the Jedi’s stance as peacekeepers and diplomats, they often find themselves using violence to solve their problems. These episodes showcase both the merits and dangers of such an approach in two different stories about species outside of the galactic warfront.
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. Something done to great effect here in three episodes that don’t really have anything to do with one another, except for the stories revolving around one troublesome Nemoidian.
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.
Looking forward at my watching list for this series, It seems like we’re just focusing down on series 1 for a good while. When I learned that this was an anthology series, and everything was going to be out of order, I’d kind of expected to be jumping around a whole lot more.
But here we at the beginning of a decent run of episodes from the first season, this time episodes 5 to 7. But if you’d like to read the other parts in this series, then just give this link a click and you can see the entire franchise page so far.
