Episode: "Slaves of the Republic"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 4, Episode 12
Original Air Date: December 2, 2011
I can't tell if it's me or the series but I'm burning out a little on The Clone Wars. It could be me. As I write this, it's August. Anticipating a busy fall in my life beyond the blog, I've spent the summer trying to get ahead on these posts. So, I've been watching the show and writing about it quite a lot over the past couple months. It could be fatigue.
But, I can't help feeling the energy of the series is flagging, too. This arc actually has a lot going for it. We get to visit a couple of new worlds. We get a new angle of galactic history with the Zygerrians. We get some decent development for Anakin. And yet, I'm having a hard time getting excited about it. I may have a touch of Anakin-fatigue, in particular. Generally speaking, the stories I enjoy the most have little to do with him. The Zygerria arc is Anakin-heavy.
Next week: "Escape from Kadavo."
