There are over 150 hours of Star Wars on Film.
This is the Star Binge where we select, order and elevate the top 40 hours of the Star Wars Canon.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Episode 17 | "The Deserter" | Part II
We talk freedom, duty, and the importance of family in Star Wars, concluding a primary episode that elevates the heart of Rex and the Clones.
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!
