So if you're not already on board for the reasons listed above (or any other reason you might have) let me urge you to pick it back up now. If you don't have a DVR or On Demand I suggest putting the TV on mute and checking email during the commercials. If you've lost interest because things didn't really seem to be going anywhere in the larger Star Wars universe (which I can totally understand) it's time to give it another shot. If you've never seen it at all then now is the perfect time to start. The second season finale had me saying "Holy Shit!" in a way I don't usually associate with Disney cartoons, and a third season is on the way.
easy to relate to. I was, and still am far more interested in the adults around him. I am, however, not at all interested in yet another droid with a personality. It all stems from the horrible "Roger, Roger" jokes in the prequels. I just can't let that go for some reason. The excellence of the voice acting takes a lot of the sting out of what I don't like about the animation. Who knew that I would ever enjoy something with Freddy Prinze Jr.? Vanessa Marshall is great as Hera, and I could listen to Steve Blum on anything anytime. For those that don't know the name, he's voiced a ton a video games, and another ton of cartoons. Most notably, Spike from Cowboy Bebop (which is the best anime ever BTW). I liked the episodes where they were fighting Inquisitors or exploring the characters back-stories, but some of those stories were far less exciting than others. By the middle of the first season I was drifting in and out. I just happened to watch the first season finale at my father's house, when our old friend Ahsoka Tano showed up though. That's not a spoiler since she's been on the whole second season.
Season three was announced late last year so we can expect to see it before the end of this year. If you're not caught up, get that way now. Even if you didn't get into it at first give it a binge. Where the show is now, and where it's heading are well worth watching. I don't hand out praise lightly so coming from me this really means something. Just make sure you can skip the commercials.
Beth got her start writing for a site called Movie Criticism for the Retarded (which has been reborn as dorkdroppings.com. Check it out sometime), but was pulled out of an early retirement to write for Needless Things. When she isn't writing she plays video games and watches bad horror movies while eagerly awaiting the zombie apocalypse. She may try to save her husband and/or their cats, but luckily hasn't had to make those tough decisions yet.
