PCR #128 - Revenge of the Clone Wars

May 25th, 2020

In this episode, Travis breaks down and reviews (with spoilers) the final season of Star Wars: Clone Wars.  He spends a little time recapping the first two story arcs, which deals with the "Bad Batch" of Clone Troopers, followed by the return of Ahsoka Tano and what happened to her after she left the Jedi Council in season five.  The real detailed review starts with the final four episodes, which deal with the "siege of Mandalore".  He goes into detail of how these episodes have a unique tone and style different from the rest of the series, the improved voicework, a new technique used in one sequence, and how it all ties-in to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  He wraps up by giving his final thoughts on the season as a whole and the mastermind behind it all, Dave Filoni.

Download it, enjoy it, and "may the Force be with you.  Always."
