Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
The series started the same year that the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (2008) was released. Both this series and the game introduced an apprentice (Ashoka in the series and Starkiller in the game) to Anakin/Darth Vader. Both apprentices hold their lightsabers in the Shien reverse grip. The year Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (2010) was released both Starkiller's clone and Ashoka began dual wielding lightsabers.

I was apprehensive about seeing the Clone Wars movie, but after it pleasantly surprised me, I was definitely looking forward to this TV show. After watching the first two episodes aired tonight on Cartoon Network, I can safely say my anticipation was rewarded.
Judging by these two episodes, I can see that a lot of work has been put into this series, and it's not just something for the kiddies to watch. It was watching a mix of the humanity of original trilogy with the action of the new trilogy. It's a great show, and definitely worth a watch for Star Wars fans of all ages. Just give it a try, you're bound to love it.
