THIS is The Clone Wars
9 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have to admit, I was perfectly content with leaving the show entirely after the first season. And then when I finally got around to the second season, it was more like 'eh, I'll stick with it.' I'm glad I did, because the third and fourth season had some really good episodes. But then with the fifth season, it felt like the show was stagnating again. The rising tensions at the end of the last season were put on hiatus, to be replaced with content like the D-squad run (yeah, the Clone Commando was cool, but the Colonel Gascon probably best belongs with Jar Jar Binks in the 'failed attempts at comic relief' category).

And then this run came, beginning with episode 15, Eminence.

And this episode to cap it off.

Did it feel like I was watching a kids show, in the stereotyped sense of the word? Not at all. It was dark, violent, and intense, in a way that felt a lot more The Empire Strikes Back than The Phantom Menace. And yet, with so much confined in a mere twenty minutes, the pacing made it feel fresh. The only time that you'll be able to breathe is during a mid-point death scene; one of the best TV death scenes that I've ever seen, rivaling Hank's death in Breaking Bad and the Red Wedding from Game of Thrones.

Yep, I just compared The Clone Wars to Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.

Somehow, this episode almost singlehandedly transforms the show from its season one origins, and made me forget about all that I had disliked; the stupid battle droids, the fruitless attempts at humour, the stagnation of the plot. Sure, the show had been getting progressively more mature and leading up to this, but this was THE tipping point.

Rarely would I recommend watching a whole show just for one episode, especially in an animated children's' show, where a lot of the episodes are self-contained. But if you keep key points from the previous seasons in mind while watching The Lawless, it all just somehow works. It's awesome.
