    Just caught up with this season and like many, I think S2 has been great. Especially this episode. Lots of revelations and it opens up a lot of potential plot lines for future seasons or spinoffs.

    Though this being a TV series, I know it can't as cinematic as a movie but the "small" feel of the Calodan battle was a little bit disappointing. After all of the talk about how hard it would be to overcome Elsbeth's security forces, it was pretty much a walk in the park for Tano. And the final battle between Tano and Elsbeth was so slow. I know Diana Lee Inosanto can fight so they must have slowed it down for Rosario Dawson (or her stunt person).

    You try to fight with a huge squid on your head.

    After the season 2 finale, I wanted to learn more of Ahsoka Tano and other characters in this series that I'd never heard of. I watched all of Clone Wars, skipping the Jar Jar Binks-centric episodes, and am halfway through Rebels. I had no idea who Ahsoka was but she's now my favorite Star Wars character outside of the original three, Vader and Mando. Really looking forward to her series.

    After I watched the Clone Wars series I tried watching Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace for the first time since its original release. I wanted to see if anything I learned from Star Wars: The Clone Wars would fill in any knowledge gaps. What a terrible, barely watchable movie! Jar Jar Binks is the worst character in the history of electrons and the young Anakin couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. Just awful. It took me two separate tries to get about two thirds of the way through before I gave up. The cartoons are 10x better than the Phantom Menace.

    Having dozens of shows to be able to develop a character helps too. As for the prequels, yeah. But the sequels make the prequels look like Empire Strikes Back.

    Generally, if I ge the itch for a historical rewatch, I continue to use this order for the trilogy movies.... 4, 5, 6, the fight scene from 3 :)
