CW Tipping PointsWell, we've finally reached the conclusion of the Onderon Arc, or as I've dubbed it, "The Robes Arc," and I can honestly say it was a well-executed and worthy finale.

 

CW The Soft WarWe're back this week with a more action-oriented installment of The Clone Wars and probably my favorite episode so far of the Onderon arc.  I really dug the direction they took with the opening, having the Rebels jump into action against the Separatist Droids patrolling the streets, making themselves known to the town folk. The gigantic holograph was a neat effect, allowing Steela to broadcast herself around various points in the town.

 

CW A War on Two FrontsA War on Two Fronts

Sorry for the delay here, folks, but sometimes the real life gets in the way of my television viewing. Boo! Now, if I could just get paid for liking Star Wars, I'd be sitting on a gold mine. But, all that aside, lets get into A War on Two Fronts. The previews for this episode had me really excited, because it looked to me like another Landing at Point Rain-style episode. So, while not as action packed as I had hoped for, the slower pace actually worked for me, as I realized this was just the first in a four-part arc.

DW S7E5The finale of the first half of Doctor Who Series 7 has come, and so has the departure of companions Amy and Rory. “The Angels Take Manhattan” begins with the angels performing their musical, Manhattan Melodies, at college and follows their journey to bring it to Broadway . . . or maybe I have the wrong Melody.
