All I could think as this episode progressed was, "I am so not ready for this . . ." Ahsoka easily became one of my favorite characters over the series, and we all knew one day we'd start to get answers as to her absence in Revenge of the Sith, but now that it might be happening, I'm frightened it might be happening too soon.
Geek Love, it's a beautiful thing and so difficult to find as not everyone lucks out with a chance meeting at a convention that blossoms into romance. Ryan Glitch's sci-fi speed dating presents a new opportunity to meet fellow convention-attending geeks in the hopes of finding someone to connect with. Following on the heels of the Geek Love one-hour special in 2012, the new web series of Geek Love features nine 10-minute episodes that focus on a particular geek as she or he gives sci-fi speed dating a try.
This episode continued on with the awesomeness this week, even with its unbalanced first act. The Sith Bros. and the Death Watch make their way to Mandalore, so Pre Visla can overthrow Duchess Satine. Who knew all it would take was a few gangsters causing a ruckus and the incredibly convenient arrival of Death Watch to stop them? Of course, they are in cahoots, with a plan that was well executed but felt rushed given the short period of time spent on it in the episode. I took it for what it was, because after the last 4 episodes with Plankton and the Droids, I want my action now. Fast and furious.
Glory of glories! The Clone Wars has returned! And, in full force, might I add. You won't find any Jedi Younglings performing circus acts and bumbling pit droids here. No, sir. This is full on Clone Wars at its finest, bringing us everything you could possibly want in what looks to be the most intense collaboration between evil forces I've ever seen. If seeing Maul and Savage back in the game wasn't enough, Filoni and crew decided to take it to 11 and throw in Death Watch and the Black Sun for good measure. Not enough for ya? Well, believe me. There's more, but I'll save that for later when I go into spoiler territory.
Why did the 100th episode of The Clone Wars have to be during this silly droid arc? No Maul, or Black Sun, or Deathwatch? No, we get more Plankton and droids to celebrate this incredible achievement! That frustration aside, this episode was much more enjoyable than the last two. It did still have its cutesy, slapstick moments and ridiculous banter, but all that was forgotten once they stumbled into a diner and met a young man who looks suspiciously like a clone.
Christmas day, and it can mean only one thing—a magical, old man travels from far away to give us a wonderful, new present. This year's Doctor Who Christmas episode, “The Snowmen,” saw some changes for the last of the Time Lords.
I'm not even going to ask, because I already know the answer. You all missed me, I get it. It's been a few weeks without your old buddy Sean and his Clone Wars ramblings, and I'm sure you've all been wondering where the heck I've been!
Oh, you weren't? Well, alright then. Let's carry on, shall we?
Aside from watching DBZ Abridged and Red vs. Blue—which are both enjoyable experiences—I haven’t seen many online series, but I must admit that this one is very unusual. I’m not saying that it is a bad series, but it is very different than anything else I’ve watched, yet similar in many ways. Despite being on the Internet and not broadcast on a major television network, it is very much like other situational comedies, with just a lesser broadcast time and audience. For adventurous enjoyment, check the series out at www.husbandstheseries.com.
After two viewings, I'm still not really sure how I feel about this episode, but it's definitely leaning more towards the negative. So, for now, let's focus on the positives of "A Test of Strength," of which there is a major one.
David Tennant. David Tennant. David Tennant!
