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.
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.
This time I’m talking about episodes 11 and 12 of the first series, dealing with a great “enemy of my enemy” type situation. Before we get into that though, if you want to go back and catch up with the episodes I’ve covered so far, then here is the archive of what I’ve already covered.
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.
