Clone Wars is NOT A KIDS SHOW... but did that make it better or worse?

    Better. I personally think there's a difference between a kid's show (Pokemon, Star Wars Resistance, etc) and a show for all ages (Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Clone Wars, etc), and the line is drawn when the show stops treating the kid - and therefore the story - like children. Are there topics too tough for kids to grasp? Absolutely, and those topics should probably be avoided for a moment. But there are also topics that kids need to learn to wrestle with (how to deal with a bully, when it's actually acceptable to fight and for what, racism and bigotry, war and the effects it has on everyone, patriotism vs nationalism, etc) that shows are perfect for exploring.

    The longer TCW went on, the more those topics were explored, and the more depth they were given. I respect that, and kids REMEMBER THAT STUFF.* And when they remember it, they can respect it when they come to realize what it did/was trying to do.

    It's also better because TCW aged with its audience, and by the time the revival hit, most of its audience was young adults and older.

    *Case and point, it's been over 15 years since I saw the Static Shock episodes about bullying (which involved a main character being SHOT IN THE LEG) and racism, and I still remember them and respect the show for covering those topics.

    Exactly! And as someone most people would call a kid (13), it does stick with you and it does make you respect the decision to cover these topics that maybe considered inappropriate for younger audiences (on the contrary, they should be explored especially with younger audiences!)

    They started off with jar jar, then they got wise and started covering more mature topics. From say, senate spy, to my favorite episode of season 6, rise of clovis.

    Yes! Plenty if death. But to be honest, the fighting and suspension is a key factor in the show. I loved the duels with dramatic endings. Gosh... I love the CW

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I feel great being here. I wanted to take a fandom and talk to others about it! I started a few threads. I got more on the way! Thank you all!

    The Clone Wars was quite action packed with all sorts of different characters. A lot of them being quite evil and harsh. For example, Pre Visla, Savage Opress, Darth Maul, Assaj Ventress, and General Grevious. Oh did I mention the evil Pong Krell, ah I did not! Well, he is quite evil. He tricked the clones to killing each other and led the clones to deathly situation while the clones were fatigued. A lot of dark ground is covered in the Clone Wars. I notice that in the show, Rebels, people don’t always die, like the bucket heads (stormtroopers), as when they are shot or hit, you can see them move or nudge if they are in a shot afterwards. However, the Clone Wars turns this darkness and does a lot with it. There still is light, but that dark makes the show dramatic and interesting.

    I think that made it better. Imagine if the clone wars made like a "crap ton" of poop jokes (pun intended). No one would watch it. It honestly would ruin the prequel trilogy. I mean, we aren't discussing Resistance here. But seriously, it would honestly ruin the best trilogy.
