Trivia

The script originally had Luminara impale a Geonosian on a broken stalactite to introduce the idea of them being undead. In the finished episode, it's a meaty punch to a bug's midsection that clues her in. See more »

Star Wars meets Aliens & Zombies
7 March 2010 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

And I thought the previous episode was bad... I wonder who came up with the high concept of this episode: "Hey, wouldn't it be *awesome* if me mixed James Cameron's Alien Queen with some generic zombies into Star Wars?" Apparently he was unaware that there are already zombies in the Star Wars universe, in two books. He was also apparently unaware that neither James Cameron's Alien Queen and zombies are *not* suitable elements in a children's animated series.

To bring the legendary, truly awesome, nightmare-inducing Alien Queen into a children's animated series, they understood that it would be too traumatizing for the tots, but they did it anyway. Same for the zombies. How? Well, the fact that the Queen is ripped off from Aliens is apparent by the way she is anchored in place, laying eggs from an egg-sack and has a wedge-shaped head. Except that in Aliens the head is the scariest thing EVER designed, but here the head is just unintentionally embarrassing. And just wait for the moment when the Queen here speaks... I wanted to cry, it was *so* bad. If someone reading this review disagrees with me, I recommend that they re-watch this episode *ten* (10) years from now. Because everyone who liked Jar Jar 11 years ago hates him now like the fans of the Original trilogy hated in 1999 (Thank you, The Matrix, for saving that summer).

The prequel trilogy and this Clone Wars series (far inferior to Genndy Tartakovsky's masterpiece Clone Wars that Lucas is apparently trying to bury for some inexplicable reason) features a lot of robots shot and sliced to bits. In the original trilogy flesh and blood creatures died, and we *felt* that. How come Star Wars has regressed to this sanitized state? Sure, the zombies are flesh and blood, but they aren't really alive nor properly sentient (there's some bull**** dialog about a hive mind but that goes nowhere). And, in the dark scenes with rapid editing, it's hard to see exactly what kind of damage is inflicted on the zombies. Meanwhile, all the clone troopers seem to die off-screen.

This Clone Wars started pretty good and entertaining, but at this point it has sunk to a pathetic level of endless battles we have not enough background info to care about and Anakin & co repeating the same mistakes/dialog/heroic feats over and over again. It's boring! And when they try to come up with "new" ideas like this episode, the viewer ends up wishing they had just stuck with the usual predictable formula. I give this episode a 2/10. Oh, and the voice-over narrator at the beginning of every episode is REALLY annoying, his preposterous booming voice coming off incredibly cheesy and effectively ruining the start of every episode. Puke.
