You're not what decimated means!

Grievous sounds like Lord Humungus there in the beginning.

i thought this was a movie that came out (not attack of clones) awhile ago. it's also a tv show now?
GlennFinito - 2009-12-15
these were shorts shown as a promotional tool for episode 3.

They are better than the new trilogy.

Charles - 2009-12-16
They're just shorts? I thought it was a whole animated series for a season or two, then the CG movie which I hear sucks, and after that the show turned into the CG show, which also sucks, but sucks ass.

GlennFinito - 2009-12-16
Each episode was about 15 minutes long.

there were about 25 episodes

The shorts were actually much shorter than that, maybe 5-7 minutes. Watching them all in a row is indeed better than any of the new movies.

"He's coming! Quick, turn on something that can be seen from orbit so he can't find you!"
Binro the Heretic - 2009-12-15
He was so totally bad-ass in these shorts then got reduced to being an asthmatic Doctor Claw in the movie and the CG cartoon.

"I'll get you next time, jedi!" {{wheeze}} "NEXT" {{cough}} "TIME!"

Lucas was horrified by the characterization of Grievous in the shorts, thinking it was absolutely wrong.

Pretty much the rest of the world that has compared the two disagrees with him.

Binro the Heretic - 2009-12-15
What, was Lucas all, like, "He's totally not lame enough! My characters only look good when you pit them against moronic dolts! This guy is way too competent and dangerous!"

The only good thing to come out of the new movies.

some of the games were ok too... well, only Jedi Power Battles in my opinion. That game was pretty damn cool, if extremely glitchy and difficult.

I want to believe that each one of those Jedi survived.

We didn't actually *see* one of them get killed.

They probably just waited until the coast was clear, dusted themselves off and went back to Castle Jedi, and enjoyed a peaceful evening with their respective families except, of course, for the usual hijinks courtesy of their zany R2 units! Oh silly R2 unit, that's motor oil, not coffee!

Two survive. Penis head duder and tentacle head woman.

oddeye - 2009-12-15
I don't really like this.

It doesn't make sense that Obi-won can bone him in the movies and Count Dooku says he is no match for a real master in the books but here in this cartoon he takes on 3 council members and I assume he drives them off.

Unless he was like originally triple-Yoda in his level of power this is way over the top. He shouldn't be anywhere near as powerful as a trained master, just like how Vader was a step down from Anakin.

Help me out here while I go shave six or seven times.
B. Weed - 2009-12-15
In either a later episode or a later part of the episode this came from, Mace Windu caved in his chest with a force clutch so he's suitably gimped when the movie starts.

Anyway, I like Shaggy the padawan.

oddeye - 2009-12-15
Whilst I'm on the subject is the force supposed to be 100x more visably powerful in the cartoons, kinda like how it is in Force Unleashed?

Lucas should just redo the entire series (minus Ewoks and Jaja) and iron out a few things.

Camonk - 2009-12-15
Okay, here's some help: you care about lame things SO MUCH that you are not enjoying an AWESOME thing. STOP DOING THAT!

oddeye - 2009-12-15
That doesn't explain how he was so powerful to start with, especially when he wasn't even force sensitive naturally. Sith Alchemy the culprit?

Lucas should also purge the entire expanded universe of all the stupid shit like the Emperors clones and light saber nightsticks and shit.

Was the rape gimmick not working out for rape?

Geek beard on:
Grievous was essentially Darth Vader Mark 1. The Emperor's first experiment with taking someone who was organic and making them into an Imperial cyborg. He's not very force sensitive, but because of the super reflexes of the robot body coupled with all its enhancements he was able to be trained almost like a Sith. In a later episode he fights Mace Windu who badly damages his body which gives him the wheeze and weakens his overall condition.

Because Lucas is a horrible writer and a fucking moron, he for some reason decided to make it so that Obi Wan takes him in a few minutes and that the future robo-apprentice to the Emperor is so badly fucked up and pathetic (Vader) that the majority of his force powers are gone and he has zero of the mobility and power that Grievous had. Lucas tried to explain this somehow with some bullshit about how after the deaths of all the Jedi any Jedi left over suffered from a lack of force to draw upon which is why there are no acrobatics and such in the original trilogy, yadda yadda, excuses, excuses, can't write, etc.

oddeye - 2009-12-15
That makes a lot of sense, thanks Stanley.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2009-12-16
@Camonk: It's like we were shown a really cool, really fast car. And this guy who owned it, he was fixing it up pretty nicely, adding new bits to it and making it even cooler...

...and then he painted ponies on it and put a bunch of dents in it with a sledgehammer. Then he tried making it look like a Yugo. And he doesn't even realize his mistakes.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2009-12-16
@StanleyPain: So... Lucas decided "The Force" was like "The Quickening" but in reverse?

Jeezus. "Star Wars" is one case where copyright be damned, the IP needs to be taken out of the hands of its creator. There's just enough "cool" to keep it going, but Lucas needs to fuck right off.

oddeye - 2009-12-15
Basically the reason why the storyline is so fucked up boils down to:

"Lucas is a ... fucking moron" - StanleyPain

Spinning your cyber arms like you're a blender is kind of cheating.
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2009-12-16
At least he had the right idea. Hell, even if I wasn't a Jedi, I'd want a light saber around the house. I could toss out just about everything I own that says "Black and Decker." With the right mounting, the saber could be a band saw, a roto-zip, a power drill, a tomato slicer, a bar-b-cue lighter, hedge trimmer, chain saw, post-hole digger...

The Jedi should be selling specialized versions of these things in every Home Depot on Coruscant.

Characters are more interesting when they do things.
