Here’s what the Interwebs are saying about last Friday’s The Clone Wars episode, “Innocents of Ryloth”:
- SWCloneWarsReviews discusses the need of showcasing what the war is about: “Episodes like ‘Innocents of Ryloth’, therefore, become a key to the series’ potency as effective storytelling.”
- IGN liked the characterization of the clones: “very impressive job of … taking hordes of characters that look alike and letting them stand out as individuals.”
- IO9 calls it “one of the more satisfying” with “For once, the script lived up to the potential of the show”.
- BigShinyRobot wishes the episode, a Guns of Navarone homage, was a bit longer.
- Cameron at DenOfGeek calls the episode “a classic, demonstrating that characters and emotions can strike a chord just as devastating as a spaceship or lightsabre battle.”
It appears that the general buzz is quite positive on bringing some heart to the war – is this the Age of “Innocents”? Could it be just coincidental that Obi-wan is the only Jedi main character in this episode? And don’t miss the weekly summary and review on ClubJade, written by Joss Whedon, or at least a Jawa who has once read a comic written by Joss Whedon.
