While I liked it. I just felt like it was one more clone POV story. Like it felt kind of Karne Traviss in a way. I'm not sure if that's what it was that felt weird.

I liked the 'deserter' subplot. And I just have to say, that Twi'lek was hot Razz I can see why that trooper deserted. Laughing Did you see Rex? I think he hesitated a brief second when the clone asked him if he wanted to stay. I think Rex is destined to end up with a hot Twi'lek of his own.

All that aside, it was interesting to see the droids run out of power. I'd never thought of that aspect before. And I liked the moment where the eopies (I think( were licking Rex's face. But yeah, little things throughout the episode made it enjoyable, even if it was just a long Grievous escape episode.

I really liked this episode, too. It was nice for people who never read RC to see that clones actually may want a life beyond the battlefield. For a second there I thought that the deserter would die and Rex would take his spot...while the kids voices were kind of annoying, i naturally thought the plotline was excellent, and it was nice to see the idea sort of brought to life after reading about deserters in the RC books.

Shocked

This one is possibly my favourite episode from both season's so far. I loved how the deserter (I forget his name) was so dedicated to protecting his family. That's what I wanna be like someday. Smile

Star Wars is cold in space- per Padme to Anakin- and HOT on the planets- per GL & DF.

Yeah the fact that all the girls on the show are either bulked up with ORNAMENT or their all wearing super slinky clothes.

One does have to wonder- after putting Leia into a slave out fit that revealed all. Padme got off lucky. She could have been in a much more revealing outfit with todays skimpy clothes standards.

Yeah, no kidding. And don't you love that her shirt got ripped perfectly? I mean, in real life, wouldn't the nexu's claws have probably just taken the whole thing? Of course, in real life, there are no nexus.......but I digress. Wink
