Ugh, droid centered episodes are never good.

I'm not against R2-D2/C-3P0 episodes.

I'm not against them, but I'm not for them, either.

This episode kind of reminds me of the old Droids series. I haven't seen the episode yet, but I hope this R2/3PO story is better then last season's episode "Evil Plans"

Is it just me, or were the clones being obnoxious jerks in this episode?

I liked this episode. First off, I really liked the Aleena. They were short, cute little aliens, and I'm just a sucker for that recipe. The Clones being jerks to 3P0 didn't bother me any. Han's a jerk to 3P0 most the time, and it makes sense that the Clones wouldn't be to thrilled to be working with 3P0.

The underground world was a neat change of pace. Definitely had a Halloween vibe to it, and the animators certainly had a lot of fun with it. Overall, I thought it was well done.

I thought the Aleena would've been more likeable if they seemed at least a little sad that their home was wrecked by an earthquake.

Well the Aleena were like hairless Ewoks hyped up on caffeine. They seemed like a perpetually happy sort of alien.

I guess. But at least the Ewok showed remorse over his fallen comrade. These guys: nothing. Rolling Eyes

They're just in line with the Jedi code and no attachments. In fact, you'd think they'd make really good Jedi...except that Aleena Jedi in TFU was crazy Laughing
