I really liked the carnival angle in this episode. From the masks the younglings wore, the Gamorrean clown, and drunken Hondo (who was hilarious), I thought it played out nicely. The whole space battle seemed a bit much, though. It looked really nice but it felt forced in.

I liked the carnival bit as well! It was a really neat way to have the younglings fight back. The space battle while a liiiiiiiiitle tacked on feeling it was beautiful, and one of the x-wing pilots pulled a really clean stall and roll move that litteraly made me cheer out loud! (Was home alone its ok I got away with it)

Did we really need yet another duel between Obi-Wan and Grievous? And one that wasn't all that spectacular at that?

I think it ties into next week's episode. But yeah the whole battle thing felt disjointed from the rest of the episode.

I agree. However, the visuals were certainly quite arresting. The fire was particularly well done.

As an aside, I found it funny to think that they stole the Wookiee circus act idea from Mercy Kill, and the Aleena reminded me of those penguins in that Madagascar movie.
