Star Wars Rebels – Can’t wait for Season 2

I’ve always been a huge Star Wars fan.  And like most fans my age I really didn’t care for the prequels.  I tried to watch the Clone Wars movie but I just couldn’t get into it.  Over time I started liking aspects of the prequels and so I watched a few episodes of the Clone Wars series (up until the episode “Bombad Jedi”, really?)  But for the most part I vastly preferred to spend my time in the Expanded Universe.

SWCW: Worst episode ever!

I’ve actually been pleasantly surprised with the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes now playing on Cartoon Network. At least, until this week…

Why on earth would they devote an entire episode to Jar Jar? The character was a nasty stereotype in Phantom Menace and instead of being amusing he’s often quite annoying (my wife says “worst character ever, even worse than Towlie”). This week’s Clone Wars episode was a continuation of his Phantom Menace “antics” and not at all enjoyable — I found myself wanting to turn it off half-way through the episode but I’m stubborn. Then when I finished it, I wondered why I bothered. 🙂

And yes, I am well aware of the irony of running to the computer to express my dislike for the episode on the Internet (at least I’m a lot thinner than Comic Book Guy!) *grin!*

BTW, in the interest of full disclosure, I actually like Towlie!
“I have no idea what’s going on…” *laughs!*
