Dude what the hell is your problem? Are you like a fucking 5 year old? The last few episodes were good. My only comments was that it was not dark enough. Not everyone wants mediocre shit like you do... if you're looking for that go watch Care Bears.
I would flame you for your preposterous and offensive overreaction, but I suspect you're looking for a fight and I don't want to indulge you.
I have no problem with dark. But there is a difference between what I expect from a Star Wars cartoon marketed at young audiences, and what I expect from, say, a horror movie or a documentary about genocide.
I also dislike your equation of not dark and mediocre, and frankly I think that equating dark with good is the kind of nonsense I would expect from a teenager of the Goth variety.
You should look at your earlier comments before passing judgement. We've suffered enough mediocre crap from this TV series as it is - minimalistic representation of military forces, absolutely no serious continuity in storyline, and absolutely no depth in the plot. Might as well call it the "Adventures of Obi-Wan and Anakin". The only saving grace this TV series has is the "Star Wars" label and the occasional eye candy which is good (I will admit that). So when the series does occasionally takes a turn for the better, and we have whiners like you complaining that it is not dumbed down enough for your kids, I do get peeved.
I'll be honest, I don't give a damn about the kiddish market Clone Wars is supposed to target. What I want is a more realistic and better storyline, and since this is about Clone WARS, it's not supposed to be bright and sunny, a dark setting is appropriate, realistic and believable. You want kiddish star wars cartoon, go watch the 1980s Ewoks or Droids.
I'm surprised that Obi-wan did not kill the mother fucker in charge of the slave outpost himself, as it would have been more realistic. Yes, I know Jedi are supposed to be the paragon good guys, but being totally helpless for weeks would have taken its toll on his psyche (I would think).
I would think so too, but Obi-wan's nickname's is "The Negotiator", he is a Jedi master, and he has been trained since an early age in emotional restraint.
