There are so many television shows out now based on the Star Wars universe that it can be really difficult to narrow down what is your favorite. I haven’t seen The Bad Batch yet (although I plan on it, probably after I finish #horrorpalooza2021), and what I’ve seen of The Mandalorian is truly amazing work (again, I’ll get around to it, let me finish statistics, please). Star Wars: Rebels was better than I thought it was going to be, too. And there’s apparently a heap of other shows coming so … they’d better wait until after nursing school for me.
My favorite of what I’ve watched, though, is the six seasons of The Clone Wars. I loved seeing stories about people other than the Jedi and how they were handling the conflict, and Anakin’s progression to the Dark Side was much more understandable and relatable, as violence and war always has a toll on anyone’s psyche, no matter how connected to the universe you are.
If you haven’t watched the series, I highly recommend it. It’s not presented in chronological order, so it can be a bit confusing at times, but it’s fairly easy to reorient yourself. There are even handy dandy guides at how to watch it if you want it on the right timeline. Oh, and Tom Kane’s announcer voice is one of the best things about the show – it really does feel like you’re watching one of those war reels from WWII.
I know these entries are short, you guys, but I’m really trying to get this challenge done before the end of the month. I started this in Maaaaayyyyyyyy.
