I thought it was a little dodgy in the beginning, but it quickly grew on me. It turned around when it got to Palpatine's ministrations. It was annoying that he basically ordered him to go, with very little subtlety, but at the same time I liked that it sounded like he was giving Anakin leave to go, much like Padme did in Ep II. I am wondering, though, if this really can be carried for another two episodes, though.

Two more things: Was that Indy's hat? Or Dave Filoni's?

And: Is that the first time Obi-Wan has been called Ben? I'm almost positive it's the first time he's been known as that in the series, but I'm not caught up on the books or comics to know. It was an interesting inclusion.

He was called Ben in the last episode as a codename. But that is confirmed to be the first time.

This arc rivals the Umbaran arc. Cool

Truth. Though it is inconsistent with later depictions of how he came to use the name Ben (The Life And Legend Of Obi-Wan Kenobi said that the land he bought on Tatooine belonged to someone called "Old Ben", and it stuck). But that could be coincidental.

And they would care about such things because...?

Oh, don't mind me and my cynicism. We like to drop in occasionally. Wink

I like the story so far, although I do fear that it will get the feel of being dragged out too long.
It's nice to finally see a bit of Palpatines influence over Anakin and Anakin's trouble with keeping on the right path, but I still think that the Anakin we see in TCW is much more reserved than the one we see in the movies or even in the old Clone Wars Animated Series.
I did love the world Nal Hutta again Very Happy
And is it me or are the visuals rapidly improving? I got the feeling like the latest episodes looked better than ever.

I'd say the visuals are definitely improving. Compare season 1 to these episodes, and you'll be very surprised. But I do think the visuals are improving within this season, too. That might just be something akin to an optical illusion, because the earlier episodes, I feel, weren't as taxing on the skills of the artists involved, whereas these later ones are.

Shocked

Wery perceptive of you to notice a thing like that. I say it's Filoni's. Razz

That could be it too. It was just something that really caught my eye.

There's also the issue of setting. The first three episodes of season 4 were all underwater, episodes 5 and 6 were intentionally cartoony, and episodes 7-10 were very dark. Minor details don't come across as well. Current episodes are much lighter in setting, but dark in mood, so the details come across better.
