I'm really psyched about The Box. Sounds like a really fun episode. Some cool imagery too.

I can't wait for this episode! I think I'm more excited for this than I'll be for any of the Maul episodes.

That first picture would be an amazing wallpaper if the quality was better!

Should be amazing.

This was definitely inspired by the movie Cube Wink

'Why do they call it the cube?' Laughing

It was Star Wars Portal! Okay, not exactly, but it had the similar lab-rat-maze-trying-to-kill-you feel. A small gripe: I felt that their making Obi Wan stand out as the very best was a little too over the top. These were supposed to be the best bounty hunters that season, yet he excelled at everything? Otherwise I quite liked it.

Not as good as the last two, but still good.

I was half-expecting the Box to be a Hunger Games-style free-for-all.

That was exactly what I thought was going to happen. It wasn't all that exciting of an episode - Obi-Wan would obviously survive, Bane was likely to live, and the others were just there to die, so there was no real sense of danger or suspense for me.

Well Obi-Wan did have the distinct advantage of being a seasoned Jedi Knight. When it comes to acrobatics, it's hard to top that. The holding breath thing, the shooting match, he was a shoe in.

I did like the fact that Cad wasn't too far behind in his skills though, and he made a good leader as well. Plus Embo lived Very Happy

Guess we'll see some more Embo in the next episode. That'll make me happy.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I like Cad Bane or Embo better. I think I like Embo better as in I'd be sad if he died, but I like Bane because he makes a really good villain.
