So one of the TCW comics is being turned into an episode for TCW show.

Which one was that you ask? This one...

Yes I went there. Don't all thank me at once. So now we can hopefully look forward to more Ahsoka-slave-girl action!

If it makes you crazy that the show doesn't adhere to EU continuity, the only thing I can suggest is that you don't watch the show.


The Citadel trilogy from last season more loosely adapted the comic "Shipyards of Doom," specifically the carbonite method of bypassing sensors for infiltration. It's not surprising that now they're doing this storyline in the show.

I'd say be on the lookout for anything written by Henry Gilroy, since he was the lead writer for the show for the first season, to be redone for the show, because he undoubtedly discussed the ideas with Filoni in that capacity.

I know I should be happy that Uncle George is using the EU materials more, but I know how Uncle George works.....


Somehow I feel as though no good shall come of this.

I mean the positive side of me says maybe he's finally going to UTILIZE his SWEU and we're going to see the first time the SWEU material is used without being remade. But then I recall that Greedo shot first to George and remember that he disregards the EU for the most part and thus I feel I know that he's going to make changes to this story as TCW makes changes to almost every pre established characters. plots in some form or fashion.

So I'm not sure how I feel about this.....

Generally, I feel the same as IR2, in that, if they are going to re-use things, it makes far more sense to utilize them in the correct fashion. However, as I was thinking about what game I'd like in the SW universe (for another thread) I realised that storytellers shouldn't be constrained to follow the status quo, and not let their own stories follow the status quo. That's something I'm not fond of in most TV shows. That, as things progress, the basic premise just stays the same.

As for this: well, I've not read the comic - my liking of the PT era is relatively new and I've not read much - but the basic synopsis in the news section of the homepage makes me think that some interesting events surrounding Ahsoka will arise. I think this will be one of the better episodes of this season.

Slaves of the Republic isn't my EU elite so honestly GL can do whatever he wants with it.

One thing I am looking forward to with this arc though is Anakin dealing with his slave past. If you haven't seen the trailer, watch it Cool :

Tehehe. Simple pleasures Laughing .

I wasn't aware that that trailer was for that specific episode. I don't know if it was because I had seen the Water Wars bit before, or whatever, but I enjoyed the second half more, mainly for the said angsty Anakin.

I really wonder how true TCW will stay to the original story. If it will stay fairly true to it I'll be a happy fan, if not I'll be no doubt bummed out about it.
Either way I'm interested to see how it turns out. It would be real good to have them give credit to the comics in this way.
