It's not that I think that it is objectively terrible, but just that I don't think I'm its target audience. It's for much younger people, children, in my opinion. The dialog is pretty silly, etc. Put it this way, if you think that episode 1 (with Jar Jar Binks and all) is really great, then you'll be happy with this. I'm more of a 70s-80s era Star Wars fan.

I wasn't a huge fan of season 1, but the show just gets better from here. It's worth picking this season up to really understand some of the longer arcs of the show.

I waited until several months ago to give this series a try. I was put off by the animation style as well as the idea of Anakin having a padawan. It seemed like a silly idea, purposely directed at children. Boy was I wrong.

This series is one of the finest testaments to Star Wars. It is an expertly crafted story with the same quality you would expect from any Star Wars production. Whomever created this series put their heart into it. On many occasions this series outshines the movies in both story and even visually. I have watched all the way up to Season 5, episode 20 and I feel privileged that I got to see it. I almost don't want to finish the final episodes because then I'll have to wait. I've no doubt I'll rewatch this series again soon once I do finish it.

When I first read the reviews I saw people raving about how their children love this series. Don't be dissuaded by this. This series will be equally appreciated by adults and at some points I'd mark it around PG-13 in terms of content. The dialog is also written in a way that it will be enjoyed by all ages. I also hope the parents of those children are lucky enough to watch this series as well. It's one heck of a treat for anyone who enjoys Star Wars.

Well? Why are you still reading this? Go buy it. Get the HD version as well. I purchased the Standard version for Season 1, but HD for the rest and, oh my goodness, was it the right choice. Some of the battles could only be fully appreciated in HD.

I am a Die hard Star Wars MOVIE fan. I have read some of the "expanded'' universe novels; some are interesting, most that I have read do nothing for me. I guess i never really wanted to know what happened outside of the movies. Much like the 'mid-action' opening of the original STAR WARS, i have always felt that the things that did not get shown in the movies were not the main focus of the story. Yeah the prequels did fill in some of the gaps (in my opinion - Lucas filled in gaps that didnt need to be filled in while totally ignoring glaringly important missing pieces - but i digress), and helped flesh out some of the meaning of things. But the expanded universe (TO ME) just never had the UMMPPHH of the movies (the original trilogy mostly).
so i was with trepidation that i started watching the clone wars tv series (not on first run, but a streaming site which shall remain nameless LOL). And whether its because i went in with so much 'reserve' or because i have a grandiose vision in my head of what the back stories should be like/about; in either case - this series falls flat for me. The story told in 'truncated' fashion (sorry, in my opinion, star wars should not be in 25 min segments) cuts into the heart of the story. The voice over announcement at the beginning of each episode (while i know a nod to Lucas's love of early cinema serials) is beyond annoying, the 'quote' that starts each episode becomes 'lamer' as the seasons wear on, and the overall story just seems to be filing up space. I admit i am not a fan of a lot of animation, and the rendering on this is an example of why. To me it just doesnt add anything (and in several episodes, takes away from) to the movies.
one of my biggest complaints is the whole Anakin has a padwan story line... WHAT??!!!??!?!?.

I kept wondering why General Grevious is allowed to continue by Palpatine after he loses a fleet or an army in almost every episode
