>mfw the last season
This show hit me hard the last season
In Rebels, Rex, Wolffe, and Gregor are revealed to have gone rogue prior to Order 66 and are living in secret exile on a deserted planet. All now in their late years, Rex is a tired and war-weary veteran, Wolffe lives every day in paranoid fear of the jedi coming back to take revenge on them for what the clones did in the war, and Gregor has gone completely nuts from PTSD
Even though the show focused on the adventures of Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka, there needed to be a little more episodes about the Clone Troopers. There was even supposed to be two or three other arcs storyboarded or rough drafts about them.
Seeing them that old literally means they couldn't have been serving anymore and put into retirement the only question I have is are they scattered around the galaxy or did they get also purged?
What an understatement
Aside from the silly Padme/Senate/JarJar episodes this show is pretty fucking dark at times.
Also, RIP 99
I actually hope they borrow a bit from his role in Force Unleashed 2. He's not seen (probably because the had no time to include him), but that's what I'd imagine him to be after the clone wars.
can this list be marked to highlight only those episodes?
I never saw this show but i remember "Clone Wars" of Genndi Tartakovsky.
fucking awesome episodes with arcs troopers.
It would have been good is the kept Genndy on, but Clone Wars existing doesn't shit all over it, it actually expands on some of it.
Even has some prequel episodes to the shiny city war.
I'd find it hard to believe. Sure, Cody was always a stickler for the rules, but him and Obi-Wan always seemed rather chummy. I like to think Cody would take issue with the Empire for fucking with his head and making him fire on his friend.
The clone centric episodes (apart maybe from the Deserter and the Order 66 trilogy) were probably the cringiest parts of an already cringe heavy show.
Why would anyone give a fuck about faceless, nameless literal clones with no motivations or goals of their own?
As much as I like the clones in the series, Battlefront 2's interpretation was much better than bio-chips and hypnosis.
>"Did we have any doubts? Any private, traitorous thoughts? Perhaps, but no one said a word. Not on the flight to Coruscant, not when Order 66 came down, and not when we marched into the Jedi Temple. Not a word."
A good soldier follows orders, but the series focused too much on the "follows orders" instead of "A good soldier".
Hard-wiring without actual, literal hard-wiring. To let go of all those relationships with the Jedi because the Republic, because order, comes first.
>"As the 501st finally broke through the Sep blockade over Kashyyyk, I took a long look back at the battle that continued to rage over the planet, and wondered why so many had to die for a bunch of walking carpets. Then I followed my orders, and turned planetward."
Sometimes I wonder, maybe they didn't bother turning on every bio-chip. Maybe some bio-chips were redundant.
Maybe some clones, the clones out in the fields without Jedi support, without much of a story of their own, simply followed orders like good soldiers.
>it's a clone trooper episode
That's sort of how I viewed it.
Personally, I viewed the chips as a redundancy measure; a fail-safe. 99% of clones will follow orders as told. But there will always be a few who won't comply. And when dealing with Jedi one or two unsure clones can mean the difference between them being killed and getting away. I doubt ol' Sheev would risk it, so the chips were installed.
At least, that's how I rationalized it.
>all these fags masturbating over their Joe Operator propaganda
Gee, it's really fitting and honorable for brainwashed child soldiers to be completely compliant, it's exactly the same duty ethic as a volunteer soldier!
If only all of star wars was as good as this mini-series was.
I just can't enjoy any of the live action movies ever since I saw this.
The other clone wars cartoon also being good didn't help my problem at all.
Clones were always the best because they could actually die.
It was always the most investing part of the episodes, seeing if the clones would make it or not.
Was always nice when the main characters would get out intact with one or two unimportant clones in white. Made me feel a little happy.
