Anyone seen Episode 3 yet? This show is fucking great, not perfect, but way better than I was expecting.

Episode 3 was really good, especially the stuff with Arondir. Definitely my favorite episode so far. My two biggest complains about the episode are that there wasn’t enough Durin-Elrond interaction for my liking and that they had to end on a cliff-hanger again.

The Clone Wars: Refocused (v1.5) [100%] - All core episodes COMPLETE! + Thoughts on the new TALES OF THE JEDI
Time

I watched the first 3 episodes and I generally like it.
The only thing I would personally change is switching episode 2 and 3. Simply because it would be nice to close off episode 1 with Obi-Wan leaving Christophsis in his star-fighter and open episode 2 with him arriving on madalore navigating the very same ship.

An interesting read on the trilogy, maybe Palpatine could have picked up on his involvement with everything that has transpired in his conversation with Grievous.

Other than that I feel like the Jedi are too gullible throughout the movies to pose a threat to Palatines plans. In TPM Qui-Gon senses that there is more behind the Federation invasion but he doesn’t investigate and in AOTC does nobody investigate the mystery behind the creation of the clones. Only in ROTS do the Jedi start to suspect Palpatine after he placed Anakin on the council and thereby openly challenged the Jedi.
This makes the plot feel less like a tense game of chess and more like a GM taking on an amateur.

Yeah the Jedi just adopting the Clone Army without any questions is maybe the silliest character decision from the prequels. Even Master Yoda just takes them and jumps into combat with them within hours of finding out about their existence…very off beat for his type of character.

They were ordered by a Jedi Master. In Clone Wars we learn that he was rather paranoid and the while we viewers grow to suspect that Count Dooku might have killed Syfo Dias and played him, it is also possible that he was paranoid and and a premonition and that Dooku and Palpatine took it over and twisted it to suite their plan. Dooku is the one who recruited Jango Fett, so if Syfo Dias did order the clones, he died shortly after. The Jedi never suspected that Palpatine planted order 66. So from their point of view there really wasn’t much to investigate. A nutty one of their own placed the order about the time he died so he couldn’t have told them what he did. How the clones were paid for was never explained.

But there are still numerous questions attached to the clones. Who paid the Kaminoans? Who is this Tyranus, that recruited Jango? Who deleted all of the information about Kamino from the archives? Was Syfo Dias death connected to the order?

And there is another huge problem with how the clones are rediscovered by the Jedi. Obi-Wan finds them by accident, because someone did everything to hide this army from the Jedi. However they are of upmost important to Palpatines plan. That doesn’t make sense, Sidious big plan hinges on the sheer coincidence that Obi-Wan stumbles upon the clones AND that nobody ask any question ensuring from this discovery, because any digging into this matter would surely bust his plans.
