I was very mixed on the prequels, and therefore wasn’t much interested in the Clone Wars animated series. I still have some issues with certain aspects of the prequels, but have gotten to the point where those things just don’t matter as much as they once did. I think there’s far more to enjoy. As for The Clone Wars, it has become essential viewing in my opinion. Some of the best moments of Star Wars are found in that series. I’m very happy that I allowed my view of what Star Wars is to grow and expand.
