So, this is obviously a prequel to Hostage Crisis, but a sequel to last week's episode Assassin. Do I have that right? And I am looking forward to Cad Ban and some possible C3PO humor/R2 heroics.

I hadn't even considered this episode's spot in the timeline until now. Confused

I like how the show jumps around the timeline. I'm not really a fan of R2 D2 episodes though. Sad

I like it better when R2 and C-3P0 are together. They have a more interesting dynamic as a duo.

Well I missed in Friday but managed to catch it yesterday. It wasn't really a great episode and felt really...insignificant. I mean R2 and C-3PO both get tortured and no one even finds out. They just deliver the fruit and everything is hunky dory. It was also a little weird that R2 bailed on 3P0 to go into the droid pleasure house. But then again, R2 did push 3PO off a ledge in Attack of the Clones, so R2 always has had a certain rash streak. And as much as I like seeing Bane, his part was pretty small.

At least the preview for the next episode looked awesome.

Guess I should also mention the Hutt Council which appeared via hologram. They were a little odd looking, but I like the idea of the artists giving a little bit of shape to the Hutt's heads in order to define them.

I know, right? It wasn't horrible. It was kind of cute actually but hardly epic. I guess the DVD needs a few pauses from the constant life and death struggles of the war to lighten the mood a skosh.

You know it might be good like that, a little break in between episodes, it's just doesn't work as well when the break is seven days instead of immediately watching the next one. And as far as that goes, the next episode looks to be fast paced.

Things don't need to be epic to be good and things that aren't epic shouldn't need to be 'fillers'. They can have shows that aren't life or death without being snoozers. They could have a psychologocal character episode, really get into a characters head and see what makes them tick. Maybe try a philisophical approach. What is the real difference between the Dark Side and the Light Side? Do the ends justify the means? Is it ever right to take an innocent life? I know stuff like this is in episodes from time to time, but if you want a break from action maybe you could make one of those ideas central to the episode.

I like it when Star Wars gets epic, as any Star Wars fan does, but a break from epic-ness shouldn't mean R2 in a droid spa and party planning. Why not go deeper than you can normally go because of all those blasting canons?

Just a thought.

Point well made Reep. I was just trying to avoid saying the episode sucked. Laughing

Didn't see this one. Sounds like I didn't miss much.
