Hey thanks. I still poke my head in to varying degrees of regularity.

The show improved a lot from those early days, both in story and production values.

I enjoyed TCW overall, but the quality (at least in terms of my enjoyment) varied wildly. Clone focused shows tended to be very good, where some others were outright cringe worthy.

I guess I would put my feelings like this...

Pros:
- A heroic and capable Anakin without overt whininess
- Real Kenobi and Anakin teamwork and friendship
- Some great battle scenes, lightsaber fights in particular
- A few great new characters. I like Hondo a lot, voiced by the wonderful Jim Cummings aka Minsc from BG

Cons:
- Some unnecessary and weird canon trampling
- Ashoka (more so the problems her existence introduces. I hated her personality less as time went on)
- Some terrible politics stories. Padme's character suffers for this.
- Silly battle droids
