SciFiFX Podcast #48 – Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 1 Reviewed

This was one of the most fun talks we have had in some time. We covered all of season 1 of the Star Wars Clone Wars. We did a basic overview, with the overview we covered everything we liked and touched on a few items we did not like about this first season of Clone Wars.

Following this we did a walk though of the episodes and talked on each of them a little about everything going on from the personal touches, battles, stories and anything else that came to mind. We had times when we would run off about things, and other times when we are right to the point and moved on. Very enjoyable and I am looking forward to the next season.
