Time to Review Episode 2: Rising Malevolence
Episode 2 in my opinion was very good. Its nice to finally see Plo Koon or in fact anyone other than Ani, Obi and Asoka. We finnally get to see Grevious.
The plot was great allthough the plot of this episode is kinda more what you'd expect in Star Trek, but that's not bad. It's good that they are making Clones less like droids and more like people. It will make it more powerfull when they turn on the Jedi in Revenge of the Sith if they clones are like people and you care for them.
Nice little reference to the Death STar firing scene when the droids have the same reaction to the firing Ion Cannon that those Imperial officers had when the Death Star super-laser fired in A New Hope.
And they toned down on the corny droid jokes in this episode though there are still some droid jokes which pull the episode down.
And also pulling the Episode down is Asoka. She is cliched and annoying though this time round unlike the movie she was a little bit intersting but that's because she was only a side sort of character.
Overall the first two episode hve been a good and stellar start to the series and my rating for episode 2 is:
