It looks like the Clone Wars are coming to TV.
"Shorts" are supposed to be intermission timed cartoons, put in during the time commercials are normally run, and instead these adventure clips run just a little longer than your average commercial break I gather.
Subscription-package cable channels like the cartoon network don't rely on advertising so much, since they get cable-company user fees I think.
Thus there can be Star Wars shorts in between 15 minute cartoon segments of another cartoon show.
It is expected that television guides will list when the Star Wars segments will air (during what programs), but I'm not sure how many segments will air per day, and if they should be viewed in any particular order, like a serial drama, or if the same one will be repeated each day, and then the new one airs in the next 24 hours.
It sounds like a lot of trouble to go to understand all this and view these cartoons.
I'm going to see how hard it is to tape these 'toons, and if it causes an inconvenience or a pile of video tapes to start forming, I'll just ignore this material until a broadcast special, VHS, or DVD release comes out.
I would have so much more preferred a 30-minute solid SW cartoon show on its own. If successful, they could finally do Shadows of the Empire this way, since Han was frozen and they wouldn't need Harrison at his prices, but Mark and Carrie, plus James Earl Jones could lend their voice talents to it and finally make that adventure between Empire and Jedi a reality. But while we're more on the topic of the Clone Wars, I want to see so much more than just snipets!
What do you all think?
