Storyline

When R2D2 goes missing in action during a skirmish in an asteroid belt Anakin insists on mounting a rescue mission. Although Obi-Wan is against wasting time on a droid, Anakin explains the R2's memory has never been wiped and thus carries all of the Republic's tactics and base locations. Meanwhile, the plucky Atromech has been picked up by Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nachkt in his freighter, Vulture's Claw. Nachkt plans to sell the droid to the highest bidder.

Goofs

Quotes

Ahsoka Tano: [after performing Sai tok on an IG-86 Assasin droid] You were right about the hands-on experience, gramps. Much better than the archives.
Anakin Skywalker: Good job, but you missed one.
[performs Cho mai and Sai cha on the last droid]
Anakin Skywalker: As for you, stubby, you'd make a poor excuse for a light switch.

Really has that kid feel
7 February 2010 | by axopnkSee all my reviews

Again i will approach this based on storyline, action and characters Storyline: Basic premise is that R2-D2 is caputured, and Anakin must save R2 from the seperatist. Second, a seperatist spy R3 unit is involved to stop them from doing so.

It seems like a great storyline and then when you watch it fails in the execution. The first episode felt right but the second seemed hokey at the end with R2 fighting R3.

This episode tried to show how important R2 D2 is. But if you think about it, if Anakin had erased the republics strategies, there'd be no need to save R2. A more realistic approach actually was from Obi wan's point of view.

The evil R3 unit seemed very cheap. I can't say enough about how cheesy that fight at the end was (Good robot vs. Bad robot).

Still though, the first episode had some cool moments (with the IG 88's) but the second was a let down.

Action: The action in the first episode worked well with a star battle, then a fight with IG 88's till the ending. The second was pretty bad. Ashoka's fight with Grevious was OK, but that ending fight was the worst.

Characters: Anakin and Ashoka had a good interaction in this episode but nothing more than what has already been seen. R2 D2 had his same fiestiness, and Grievous was...well grievious (i will deal with them myself). The tradorian trader was itneresting and did have that disgusting feel to him while R3 clone was a cheap dopplengagner.

Overall: A cheap episode to bring up R2 D2's value as a "friend". Has one of those My little pony moments (Awwwwwww). You could skip this one.
