Clone Wars in season 4 continued to impress. This season was filled with several multi-episode story arcs. I found the first half of the season generally disappointing. The Mon Calamari arc didn't do any favors to Admiral Ackbar's character. The Umbaran battle arc has impressive visuals, but dragged on a bit long. I generally found the slaver's arc to be uninspired, with too many silly stereotypes (including an entire race of slaver's with Russian accents).

The second half of the season really picked up the pace with Obi-Wan Kenobi's undercover arc. I loved seeing more of the bounty hunters, especially Cad Bane! There were some great moments foreshadowing Anakin Skywalker's downfall. Then, of course, the finale, with Asajj become a freelance agent, Boba Fett getting a helmet, and Darth Maul!

Overall, this season definitely showed that the animators have the technical capability to do just about anything on the show. The second half of the season showed that the producers are willing to take the story into really dark and interesting places. I can't wait for season 5.

"Star Wars" fans are a fickle bunch. Some choose to believe only the original trilogy is to be taken seriously. Others are willing to accept all six of the films in the live-action series and that's all. I belong to the last group I'm about to talk about.

The faction I belong to will devour anything Lucas and company delivers in regards to a "Galaxy Far, Far Away." We're happy to get anything that expands the universe we love so much. Individuals who fall into this category but don't have the luxury of cable, satellite television, or high speed internet connections can now celebrate in the news that Lucasfilm and Warner Bros. released "Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Season Four" on Bu-ray and DVD.

Season Four of the show features the Jedi and Clone troopers continuing their tireless campaign to help different alien species fight for freedom against Battle Droids, Sith lords, and other deadly forces on strange worlds. Things get more complicated when a sinister enemy from the past returns to seek vengeance against Obi-Wan Kenobi. Darth Maul recruits the brutal Savage Opress in a scheme to kill the Jedi Knight for the wounds he inflicted on the Sith apprentice.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars" was meant to be seen in high-definition and this delivers just that. Every vibrant color scheme on every exotic planet the Jedi and Clone troopers journey to in their battle with the evil Empire are amplified. The picture is clean and provides a flawless viewing experience without distractions. It's the perfect way for the vast CGI world of "The Clone Wars" to be taken in. It's amazing how beautifully textured the landscapes and exteriors and interiors of the spaceships look. The animators and creative team really have moved forward light years since the beginning of the series in 2008.

A 5.1 surround sound mix ensures that no home theater audiences will miss a single buzzing lightsaber, blasting laser rifle, or speeding starship that crosses the television screen. Kevin Kiner's musical score adds an emotional depth to each episode. It takes the familiar pieces of John Williams' original compositions and expands on them to give the series its own unique atmosphere. The dialogue blends well within the framework of the sound effects and soundtrack as well.

Bonus material for the set includes five video commentaries with the director, cast, and crew of the show. An all-encompassing database of early test animation, concept art, and 3D turnarounds are featured. There's also a collectible "Wanted" poster with Cad Bane and other bounty hunters.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Season Four" is all the proof you need that this excellent show deserves your attention and respect. It's improved both visually and in story quality over the past few years. Long-time enthusiasts will be happy to know many beloved characters new and old show up including Count Dooku, General Grievous, Jar Jar Binks, Boba Fett, and many more. It's a complex science fiction thrill ride that will keep you glued to your TV screen for hours.

Season 4 of Star Wars The Clone Wars, had its shining moments. From the reveal of the treacherous jedi general krell, to the rebirth of a beloved sith darth maul. This season adds even more conspiracy to the clone wars. A great arc with cad bane and obi-wan while undercover as another famed bounty hunter totally brought back the whole underground that we all love in the series. As i watch the show more and more, its become clear this show is getting less child friendly. Well maybe for the younger ones, but i'm sure fans from age 10 and up will love this season. We also get to see more of ahsoka and asajj ventress, with very important events happening to both characters, to further their progression for the end. Its all out war in season 4, and is fun from beginning to end. Another great addition to the star wars universe :)!!!!

Season 4 continues the greatness of The Clone Wars as this show seems to get better every year especially the production and animation. Season 4 is my favorite season to date I love the multi arc episodes and this season had 2 different 4 part story arcs also 2 different 3 parters and a 2 parter to close the season. Without giving too much away I would say the Umbara arc was one of the best and darkest of the series and darkest and well the cover gives away another big story with Darth Maul which was handled very well. If you are fan of the show this is a no brainer Clone Wars is turning out to be one of the all time greats and a nice addition to The Star Wars Universe. So it turns out it's the slim cheaper packaging again I knew it would be but oh well still on content alone it's well worth the purchase for any Star Wars fan simply a great show that gets better every Season.

This show went from being moderately okay to being one of the best shows currently airing on TV. As a Star Wars fanatic I love being able to get a more in-depth look at the characters from the prequels. This show also doesn't just pander to younger viewers but is dark and gritty at times. I often wonder how they got away with showing some of this stuff on a supposed "kid's show". Definitely check it out.

We knew we would love this, so it is no surprise that we do. If you love Star Wars, the Clone wars series, and/or both, you will love this.

Season 4 is the best one yet by far.Im a Star Wars buff from so far back i can't remember not knowing about it.I was 4 years old when A New Hope came out so that should tell you how far back for me it was.Its really awesome that there bringing Darth Maul back into the story.He was only around for one episode so we can see alot more of the ultimate bad guy.Also,it might sound a bit petty to some but i hope that they go back to the DVD packaging they used in the first two seasons.Season 3 packaging is cheaper and doesn't match seasons 1 and 2.

Wow! O.O I think this is by far the best season of The Clone Wars. I got into this a little late. I was aware it was on TV, but never got around to tuning into it. So, I originally started the series on Netflix and bought the DVDs as they came out. It's been a wild ride, and after picking up the first season after it had been out for a while, the other seasons were picked up the week they came out. And this has to be my favorite season. The R2/3PO adventures were probably the only ones that are my least favorite, but the rest of the season is so rock solid that it is phenomenal. I got this on 10/29 and have watched it twice so far. The whole Ventress storyline, the Maul storyline, all of it is awesome. Not too much bad to say other than what I said for season 3: Where's the extras? I kind of like the whole video commentary idea, but I wish they added the artwork books like they did for seasons 1 and 2. But, other than that, live it, love it! Vive The Clone Wars!!!

Sadly this is the next to last season of the Clone Wars. Season 4 is very good and it looks fantastic on Buy Ray. Glad I waited to pick it up on a "deal of the Day".
