Quotes

Anakin Skywalker: Not that it isn't a pleasure, Senator, but I thought I was just meeting with Obi-Wan here.
Padmé Amidala: Master Kenobi explained the problem. I'm here to help.
Anakin Skywalker: Problem? What problem?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: The situation with our friend from Malastare.
Anakin Skywalker: Uh-huh. I see what's going on here. You think I could influence the Chancellor.
Padmé Amidala: The Zillo Beast was chained up and brought here against its will. It has no voice to defend itself. Anakin, we have to be that voice.

Manic Monster Mayhem

After decent previous episodes led to this story of a massive beast being brought to Coruscant this episode takes it a little too far for my liking.

The beast inevitably escapes and wreaks havoc after being briefly experimented on under orders from Palpatine. It is a continuation of the tribute to monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong from the previous episode and it takes it to a close match of when those movies set the monster loose in a big city. It is okay to pay tribute although this is a little too closely copied to feel very original or interesting.

My real issue here though is when the action goes full cartoon silliness with C3P0 sliding down the senate roof before clinging to R2D2 and then falling hundreds of feet undamaged. R2 also flies with Palpatine on his back. It all takes me out of the Star Wars universe and more into a loony toons cartoon like Bugs Bunny. I am not a fan of this series doing that kind of over the top stuff.

So sadly overall I only rate this 4.5/10.
