The Clone Wars is over for now, but hey! DVDs!

And so the first season of The Clone Wars ended on Friday with a ‘Hostage Crisis’. Dave Filoni talks about bounty hunters in the episode commentary, and Bonnie interviews Corey Burton, who voices Cad Bane, Count Dooku and Ziro the Hutt. And don’t forget about the S2 preview!

Catching up with a Clone Wars con weekend

And I don’t think anyone is surprised to hear that Cartoon Network has picked up the series for season 2.

(At right, a great Clonetrooper costume shot by Muckster at the con. Check out the whole set!)

  • The Hidden Enemy: Read the expanded episode guide or watch the video commentary for last week’s episode. And check back later today for a guest review from The Stooge!

  • Next week: Padme and Jar Jar are joined by the Michael York-voiced Dr. Nuvo Vindi in ‘Blue Shadow Virus.’ (Logan’s Run? I don’t think the target audience will remember that. I barely remember that. Try Austin Powers. Or Gilmore Girls!)

The Clone Wars plays hide and seek with a traitor

The Clone Wars: Hidden Enemy

Tonight’s “Hidden Enemy,” looks pretty clone-centric. Director Steward Lee and writer Drew Greenberg discuss the episode’s premise, while Pete Vilmur interviews Nika Futterman, who voices Ventress.

3 Annies for Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II won Annie Awards for Best Animated Television Production, Writing, and Voice Acting for Ahmed Best’s Jar-Jar. But perhaps the biggest shock was the total shut-out of WALL-E – it was beat in nearly every category it was nominated for by Kung Fu Panda. Seriously. Kung Fu Panda. The hell?

Other winners include Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Kevin Kiner was up for Music in an Animated Television Production for the ‘Rising Malevolence’ episode of The Clone Wars, but lost out to Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer & John Powell for Secrets of the Furious Five, a Kung Fu Panda spinoff.

Bundle up for tonight’s Clone Wars

The Clone Wars: Trespass

It’s Friday, and ‘Trespass’ debuts tonight. The episode introduces Chairman Chi Cho, voiced by Brian George, and also features quite a bit of Threepio. Get a preview with the latest webcomic, ‘Cold Snap’

The Clone Wars: War! What is it good for?

The pacifist lemur storyline came to an end with ‘Defenders of Peace.’ I think they need an entire episode of Palpatine laughing his bum off after this.

The Clone Wars: Now with lemurs

The Clone Wars: Jedi Crash

Friday’s ‘Jedi Crash’ brings the Jedi to Maridun, home of a colony of Irish-accented Lurmen. In the video commentary, Dave Filoni talks about the comic book influences in the episode.

Ricardo Montalban off to the next great journey

The man who brought us Khan lives no more.  Ricardo Montalban passed away yesterday morning at the age of 88.

CJ honors the passing of a great contributor to the geek world, from his roles as Star Trek’s Khan, to movies including Naked Gun and Spy Kids, and of course Fantasy Island.  There are also many CJ’ers who are fans of the series Kim Possible which he contributed to recently.

Raise a glass of Romulan ale and toast farewell with us!
