What is the best way to watch Clone Wars (2003)

I’ve wanted to watch the Gendy Tartakovsky Clone Wars show for a long time now. Since it has recently been added to Disney+ I figure now is as good a time as any. But is this the best way to watch it? I am aware that fan-made 4K upscales have been circulating for a long time now. How do they compare to the official release?

I’m also wondering if watching the show in 1 hour blocks (which is the way it is presented on Disney+) is really ideal. I’ve never really been down with the whole binge watching thing and generally prefer to watch media in the way it was originally presented. Does this show watch better in as one or two long movies, or as a series of short segments? If the latter, is it available to watch in this format anywhere?

I have no idea about the differences in quality, but the idea of watching it in 1 hour blocks sounds kind of exhausting to me. Keep in mind that the first two seasons (or “volumes” as they call them for some reason) were made up out of less than 5 minute long shorts jam-packed with action. Seriously, a lot happens in these shorts. There is sort of a single story told throughout the first two volumes, at least as far as Anakin and Obi-Wan is concerned, but there’s a lot of filler shorts as well. Volume 3 is much more like a regular cartoon with 20 minute episodes and tells two parallel stories just prior to the events of ROTS.

I don’t know where you can watch it as a series of shorts or episodes as the YouTube versions also combines everything into one movie. However, if the D+ version is anything like the YT version it should be fairly obvious when each short ends and the next one begins.

Thanks. I decided to watch it in smaller bits and yes, the transitions between episodes are quite obvious, to the point where its distracting. I’m enjoying the show anyway.
