PCR #124 - Attack of the Clone Wars!

February 28th, 2020

In this episode, Travis and X prepare for the return of Clone Wars by recapping their favorite moments of the fan-favorite Star Wars animated series. They get spoiler heavy in their thoughts for the show (and for Rebels as well). Travis just got finished watching the series recently for the very first time, and they go into why it took him so long to finally watch it and what were some of his initial reactions upon viewing. From there they go into the more mature tone of the series as well as the storytelling, the amazing voice cast, the connections to the movies, their thoughts on Ahsoka Tano (and what is she better than?), a nice tangent on Mandalorian, Mandalore, and the Darksaber, the original format of the show and how it changed over the seasons, and the issue over the correct viewing order of the series. From there Travis gives his top ten story arcs from the series. After that, they go back and forth on some other cool moments and episodes they both enjoyed. They talk a little about the shorts series Forces of Destiny and how it tries to clear up some plot holes. They wrap up with their final thoughts and what they like better: Clone Wars or Rebels...
