    anyone follow Star Wars Rebels ? I'm into this show more than I ever got into Clone Wars .
    The show is like Star Wars with a Firefly feel to it .
    I hoping the show runs up to the point the Rebels get the Death Star plans to Leia .
    The new season started off great .

    I'm just the opposite. I loved Clone Wars but I have trouble getting into Rebels.

    It's a little less violent but I like the characters better and I like that it's close to episode four .
    I got right into it because it feels more like old days Star Wars and not just all out war .

    The story is good but I have a hard time getting over the animation style. I thought I'd become get to it after a few minutes, but there's something about it I find jarring.

    What I liked about Clone Wars was that there were so many different characters, stories, and planetary systems to choose from. Cad Bane, young Bobba Fett, the Mandalore/Death Watch, Zero the Hutt, Rex and Cody, Asokah Tano, The Werewolf slavers, General Gascon, the Younglings making their first lightsabers, on and on and on... So many story arcs with so much variety. It finally showed the true, gargantuan scope of the Clone Wars. Rebels feels small and almost clausterphobic in comparison.

    My GF said the same thing . She said she thinks it looks old and it's hard for her to get past that .

    It will be interesting to see why none of the rebels gang are in A New Hope.

    Rebels and, especially Clone Wars is way too complex for "5 year olds" to fully comprehend. Clone Wars has a full 3 episode story arc in the 5th season about the banking and financial system of the Republic. It's a good TV show, the fact that it's animated is pretty insignificant to the quality of the storytelling. If you don't like Star Wars or sci/fi that's one thing but if you do, don't blow these shows off because they're "cartoons".

    I blew them off for a long time but then when I started watching them I saw it wasn't a kids show . For one they are way to violet for young kids . They are more violent than the movies some times . I changed my mind totally after I got into season two .

    I'd like to sit down one week and DL them and binge them.

    Isn't there another series too with it?

    Another thing I like about the Rebels / Clone Wars shows is that they use the designs that were not used in the movies but were drawn in the development of the films .

    Great post! MARVEL Animation has done the OPPOSITE now. They've completely dumbed everything down to ape the live action films in an ADHD sort of way - with REALLY shitty humor that's badly ripping off Family Guy.

    They like to speak DOWN to their audience because they think all kids and adults are stupid.
