What is, then? The battle? I don't think he's dying here or anything, as Grievous is only hitting him with the staff, not the saber. But I wouldn't be surprised if he bit it during this episode.Originally Posted by Battle Droid
Innnnnnnnteresting. I'll have to check those out.
Tommy, close your eyes.
I haven't chuckled at a SW:CW episode in quite some time. "Boss" vs. Grievous scene was great. General Tarpals?
"I went to Star Wars Celebration VII in Anaheim, and I didn't get even a lousy t-shirt."
Although I must say yet another fight involving Smelly Boy and Dookers....ehhh. I think the "less is more."*
Trading Anakin for Grevious seems a pretty big deal, something that a senator would need to have ok'd by some sort of higher power.
Or do I have that totally wrong and they've only 'meet' in the movies?
You'd think the Jedi would suspect something is going on now between Padme and Anakin because of the trade now.
What if no one ever out about the trade? The Seps know Grievous is captured but maybe the Naboo or Padme never reported it and then Anakin was already taken?

This episode was enjoyable. Jar Jar was funny. The look and story had a nice feel to it. Lots of cool looking craft. I liked the transport and another version of the Gungan sub. The Neimoidian walker looked the style of the one Sidious holograph was on.
Padme was in her Battle outfit from Episode 1, if I'm not mistaken, so we might see her again in an animated version or better yet realistic updated or both. Too bad about Tarpals, but it was a good fight scene with Grievous
So Anakin and Grievous didn't actually meet, but it's the closest they've been to each other.
"Ohh, maxi big da fish! Well dat smells stinkowiff"
"No time to discuss this as a supercommittee.... I am not a supercommittee!"
I enjoyed this episode quite a lot. It was a very fun TPM-flavored affair. Even though they've gone to Naboo before, it was good to see Otoh Gunga, a (somewhat different) bongo, Padmé's battle outfit, and kaadu; I especially liked the brief shot of Gungans riding kaadu underwater, that was cool.
It was striking to see Jar Jar and Grievous in the same scene, since they're so different. But the scene between them was pretty funny and it was nice to see such an unexpected match-up.
The battle between Grievous and the Gungans was fantastic. Grievous held his own for a while, but it was really cool to see the Gungans take him down with boomers. It's sad to see Tarpals go, but his sacrifice was really well done.
It was a little odd to have Tarpals and the Gungan warriors have such soft, round features when Jar Jar's are very harsh and angular as he hasn't gotten a redesign like the other main characters (even Padmé looks like a new model at this point).
At first I wondered why Padmé would be so willing to let the Separatists keep Anakin, but it shows that, even though she cares about him a great deal, she'll still do what's best for the Republic and its billions of citizens over what's good for just her. Anakin's exactly the opposite, of course, so it was interesting to see the difference there.
Next week's show with the droids on Aleen looks fun as well. This time last year we were getting into the heavy political episodes; these ones are a little more enjoyable.
