    (What I said in that other thread.)

    Great stuff!

    3 minutes seemed like 3 seconds though. The kid and I sat and watched it ... he says after it's over, "That's it 'til Monday?" A little bit like getting one lick from an ice cream cone, and then having to wait a few days for another.

    But, I thought it looked great. For something so short it had some nice detail ... Palpatine's clacking nails was great. The ships, scenery, all of it felt very Star Wars. Even heard my wife say, "I'd rather watch this than the movies." I was pretty sure that I'd be happy with it, I love the style, but I'm even a little surprised at how well it works in this case.

    Looking forward to more.

    -----------------
    BTW Tycho, I'm gonna try and tape it at midnight. (Thanks for the tip. I hope it's on.) If I get it, I'll be able to pull stills from VHS. (In case we want to look at anything in particular in detail.)

    I heard that it's almost impossible to download. There are so many people trying it get the short that it's causing a bottleneck.
    Well I don't know about a bottleneck, no one's even got it up on KaZaA yet according to my "clone wars" search.

    IRC should be the first place, if anyone comes across it, please post the server/channel. Thanks!

    You know, it went by so fast that even though I saw the whole thing, I almost have to vote for: "Darn! I missed it! Well, I'll tell you all when I've finally seen something of it."

    To clarify, there are no listings here on the west coast showing any reruns. The show started at 8:01pm with a some Cartoon Network lead-in stuff and was out just over halfway through 8:04pm.

    I'm going to buck the current love trend here and say I didn't really like it that much. Some of the art wasn't too horrible, but stuff like Yoda and Anakin didn't sit well with me. Much of the action felt more like Genndy's other stuff (Samurai Jack & Dexter's Lab) than SW to me, though the only parts that I remember feeling were not working were the Jedi making a very long jump from the gunship and Anakin's Force push of the SBDs and a slice of a large circle of SBDs all at the same time. The art on Anakin keeps coming back to really bother me, it just doesn't feel at all right. Didn't think squat of the opening titles. At first I was digging the use of SW music, but somewhere around the middle it started to get forced. The integration of CG graphics came off with mixed results.

    Ultimately, the biggest detriment to the show was the ultra-short run time of 3 minutes. This felt like a choppy, almost incoherent trailer rather than the first chapter of this story. I'm sure Genndy and crew could have spent an easy 20 minutes actually telling the story they attempted to shoehorn into the scant blink of an eye that they got; at the end I felt like I actually had blinked and missed most of it, and thanks to the MTV-era lightning editing, I didn't really get a chance to digest most of what I saw -- which could either be interpretted as an evil born of necessity or an editing trick to hide a hollow show, or possibly some third option that just ain't dawning on me. But the bottom line is that the format is going to tell the world's choppiest 30-minute story when it's all over and I don't feel drawn to trying to watch that unfurl every night for a couple minutes a night, it's just not rewarding enough.

    ... and don't get me started on that hair's-breadth of a trailer for chapter 2.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I vote "it was average but I'll still tape every show just because I can't imagine missing it."

    Obi-Wan sounded GREAT, Yoda was a bit goofy to me and Anakin sounded . . . oh yeah, I don't know how he sounds because instead of mouthing off to Obi-Wan like he SHOULD have, he just made that dumb "shoulder scrunch and glare" look at Obers. Padme nearly made me LOL because she looked a bit silly, I don't know why but she did.

    I have a feeling that this will be my favorite chapter because I am NOT looking forward to the introduction of Durge and Ventress. I'll try to keep an open mind but those two feel REALLY cheap to me.

    Still, I have to say that I was excited going into it and it's just cool to have some new product.

    Hey, am I going to have to watch that same idiot introduce the show every night? The girl they had was alright but damn that guy annoyed me. And what gives with his slag against SW fans for "usually being home on Friday nights" (or something to that effect) ???
    Umm, sorry guy . . . but you are on a Friday night CARTOON show. So shut up.

    Just an update, in last few hours have now found three of at least five Clone Wars promos on KaZaA. Am also queued up for a 40MB mpeg file purporting to be the first Chapter.

    Now let's see how long it takes me to download this baby!

    LOL, same here, I wasted 2 hours on Kill Bill. Just another crap *** film. No wonder he hasn't done anything in 4 years.

    welllllllll, I'm definitely in the minority here with choosing "haven't seen it, not interested"

    I think I'll stick to spongebob and Rocko's modern life. In the past, star wars cartoons for some reason never grabbed my attention, not even the droids series...I guess I should be open minded and catch at least one episode of this new cartoon so I can honestly say that I'm not interested for sure.

    Glad most everyone else seems to like it as the artist (can't remember his name) seems like an extremely nice person and very excited to be doing this project!

    Deoxy? You're a Rocko's Modern Life fan? You rule, sistah. I adored that series, and hope that rumors are true of a possible DVD release in the future.

    Ok, I just saw the short on Cartoon Networks site and I think is was awesome, but too short. So for those that didn't see it last night go to the site and view it.
