A guest blog by Maverick-Valen
For years I was in love with the Star Wars films, so when I heard they were making a fully animated series between the films, it was only natural for me to feel the excitement as I had for when Episode III was released. With the show being based in the Clone Wars, I felt it to be familiar territory, for this wasn’t the first attempt at a Star Wars TV show. I can clearly recall the Clone Wars mini-series, but that’s all it was really. A mini-series that had some great moments, but offered so little content due to its length. With Star Wars The Clone Wars it was the total opposite in animation, time length and story. Although, unlike Clone Wars, where I simply watched it on Cartoon Network, the only way for me to see The Clone Wars episodes was through Youtube. Yet the contents of the show easily made up for sitting on a hard wooden chair in a small room. The adventure, the excitement and the animation just made the show such a treat to watch. Of course, like anyone else I had to go through the agonizing wait for the next season, but it always paid off in the end. With every season the episodes got better and better. Like an aspiring long distance runner going farther and farther. And for more than four years it made my weekend.
