    After Mando S2 I got bored of star wars, so I read some Dune books and watched Narcos. Now, I am back with my star wars craze and realized that while i've watched CW S4-7 many times, the same cannot be said about S1-3. So, I will report my findings here, like the wise Norwegian man did. I will review S4-7 quickly, because I can do that from memory.
    (S4-S7 reviews will be pretty short, S1-3 will be more in depth)
    S4:
    Fish People Arc- Just very boring, only action, the action is also boring. The shark is cool I guess.
    Shadow Warrior- I actually really liked this episode, and the part where the Gungans defeat Grievous was a nice touch. I don't there to be a race of incompetent morons, which is what the Gungans were, until this episode, which cemented them as a realistic people.
    Mercy Misison/Nomad Droids- Unlike most people, I like these episodes. They were cute little short stories that were weird and varied. Not much substance, but not bad by any means.
    Umbara- It's good. Some people have said that the mystery is obvious, but I feel like that is intended, as Rex's conflict is one with his beliefs of honor, and morality. Rex never suspected Slick or Pong Krell because he believes that the clones could never turn from the war, as that is all he has ever known. Similarly, he does not even fathom that the jedi could be wrong, because all he has ever known is that the jedi are the ultimate order, the perfect representation of good, which is why the clones serve so loyally.
    Zygerria Stuff- Very good, I feel like i don't have to explain this one.
    A Friend in Need- Meh. Lux is always fun, and this episode gets points for Ahsoka's quadruple decapitation, but I wanted death watch to be fleshed out more.
    Bounty Hunter Obi Wan- Another amazing arc I don't have to explain, and it has Embo.
    Massacre- Just a massacre, which is fun. Nightsisters are cool, and we get to explore their society more.
    Bounty- Quotable, good action, more bounty hunters, and some nice moral conflict.
    Maul and Savage- First episode is fine, second is good and introduces the obi wan-maul conflict again, so yay. Good episode

    S5-
    Revival- Good action, has hondo.
    Onderon- I guess these are just fine. They're okay, I have no negative opinions for them.
    Youngling stuff- Very good, fun little adventure, and turns the trope of a impatient and impulsive jedi trying to learn to be calm on its head with katooni, who is already calm, but needs to be more instinctive with her connection to the force.
    Droids- Fine, Colonel Frog is fun, and gregor is too.
    Maul stuff- Amazing duh
    Ahsoka arc- Best of this season, I can't explain it. Its just very good.
    S6:
    Fives arc- Very good, duh
    Clovis- I like these political episodes, I also like how it portrays how much of a shitty relationship padme and anakin have. Padme always apologizes because she is married to a violent manchild, who acts on his instincts and is not ready for a relationship.
    Jar Jar- fine
    The Lost one- fine, good action
    Yoda stuff- good, I'm not much for mystical force stuff, but on that matter it is good.
    S7:
    Bad bATCH- good, just over fine
    Martez- fine
    Siege of Mandalore- duh

    Cool, quick review. There's a couple here I don't remember ('cause my brain is stupid), but I'm pretty well aligned with your views. I thought your insight on the Youngling Arc was interesting; I didn't consider the reversal of tropes here. Cool stuff, man!

    Hah! I have it on good authority that the Norwegian man's wisdom is highly exaggerated! Word in the street is, he's an idiot! :rolleyes:

    Curious to read that. It gets a little better after the 3rd episode of season 1. I had high hopes for that show but it under delivered IMO.

    I think one thing that drove people away from Resistance was definitely the animation style. You can’t go wrong with the animation we see in CW and Rebels and BB. Im actually currently watching Resistance. Ill have to tell yall my thoughts

    I personally wasn't bothered with the animation style, that grew on me as the series went on because the designs and colors of the environment looks great, the character models not so much. The series just screams for another racing SW game similar to the pod racer games.

    Yeah I have to say. While watching it now, i can say that the characters models aren’t too great, but the environment is amazing. Castilon is an amazing planet when the animation and colors come into play.
