Episode 21 | "Slaves of the Republic"
One of the better Clone Wars episodes, borrowing heavily from Return of the Jedi. We talk about heroes stealing cars, Anakin's Don Juan persona, and we talk about "Slave Leia" and the assassination of gangsters. Support this podcast

Episode 20 | "Kidnapped" | Part II
We conclude the first episode of the Kadavo Arc: Season 4 | Episodes 10-12. Excellent themes hit here from terrorists with bombs to Post Traumatic Stress caused by slavery. So much to discuss! Support this podcast

Episode 19 | "Kidnapped" | Part I
We tackle a significantly underrated 3 episode arc from Season 4. This may be the best unveiling of the hearts of Ahsoka, Anakin and Kenobi in all of the Clone Wars. In this arc we see trauma, we see the inability of friends to help heal deep wounds, and we see the hearts of our characters exposed in ways seldom seen in this series. In terms of its importance and ability to set up everything to come, this is top shelf material. Support this podcast

Episode 18 | "Hostage Crisis"
In a wonderful salute to Die Hard and The Dark Knight, we see Anakin Skywalker seeking to save his bride from what is arguably the best villain created in the Clone Wars Era. We had a lot of fun here, and we may also make fun of buffoons who storm capital buildings ... so be warned. Support this podcast

Episode 16 | "The Deserter" | Part I
In what Daniel describes as the best episode of Star Trek he's seen, we enjoy a Rex focused episode that elevates the Captain's humanity, sense of self, and his own thoughts on "freedom". This is not only a character building episode, "The Deserter" highlights many of the central themes and conflicts in the Clone Wars: family, free will, duty and the desire for happiness. This may be the best episode in all of Season 2. Enjoy! Support this podcast

Episode 15 | "Arc Trooper"
This is easily a Top 10 Clone Wars episode! "Arc Troopers" is the animated series at its best : Gorgeous lightsaber battles, Brilliant Star Wars tech, deeply evil moments, and one of the most moving death scenes in all Star Wars ... without question. "Arc Troopers" desired two parts, but we slammed all the goodness into one epic episode. Enjoy! Support this podcast

Episode 12 | "Rookies"
This is the second episode in the Domino Squad Arc: Season 1, Episode 5. We love everything about this episode. Great action, solid character beats, unexpected deaths, it all culminates in a fantastic Star Wars moment, but most importantly we get to talk about the pop significance of "bloody hand prints".

Episode 11 | "Ambush"
The very first Clone Wars episode ever released falls as number eleven in the Binge, but there's a reason it was number one. This is a wonderful Yoda story that further elevates not only the humanity of the Clones but of Asajj Ventress as well. Very rewatchable. Do jump in with us. Support this podcast

Episode 10 | "Clone Cadets"
An origin story for arguably three of the most important characters in Star Wars! This is a stellar episode that introduces us to the inner life of the clones, and sets up much of the heart of all that is to come. We recorded on "Clone Cadets" prior to the release of Bad Batch, but many of you will notice all the set up in this episode for all that is being unveiled right now in 2021. Support this podcast

Episode 9 | "Weapons Factory"
We dive deep into the early relationship between Anakin and Ahsoka in a very moving Clone Wars episode. This is Season 2 Episode 6 | "Weapons Factory." If you are just jumping into the Binge, we do suggest starting with "Episode One | "Old Friends Not Forgotten". But otherwise, buckle up for a discussion of mansplaining, love, and what weapon you want to have in your pocket when you get mugged at night. Support this podcast

Episode 3 | "Shattered" | Part I
We begin a long discussion of the penultimate episode of the Clone Wars Animated series. This is our commentary on Season 7, Episode 11: the third part of the fantastic "Siege of Mandalore" arc. We divided "Shattered" into two parts because this 20 minutes may be the best of all Star Wars not in one of the films. Truly a treasure. Do take a listen. Support this podcast
