Agreed... it was great seeing the battle droids back in action.

And then they follow up the excellent ep 3 with the fairly boring podrace-lite episode 4. That’s always been the issue with all these clone wars cartoons. When they’re good they’re great but just too many filler episodes.

I actually liked this Tech-centric episode. The focus always seems to be on Hunter and Omega, so taking a breather from them and learning a little bit more about the other members of Clone Force 99 is alright with me.

I think that's why Crosshair's ep last week was good.

I think it would be safe to say that we'll get one or two more eps where one of the others is the "star."

I'd like some more backstory on Echo and if he feels like he really fits in with the Bad Batch (being that while more machine than clone, he's not defective).

I mean they are cartoons for a reason and there’s bound to be filler episodes. It doesn’t bother me though because I like most of the characters.

With sixteen episodes this season, a complete waste of time like this episode is a bit easier to swallow, but it was just another "someone learns a lesson" exercise in futility. And the green lady is a crook? Who knew?

Another filler episode… just to let you know.

And it was Wanda Sykes’ treasure hunter that was the focus.

Cool creature and cool twist on the “dungeon” so it made for a mildly interesting episode.

I hope they thread these stories soon.

Caught up tonight. Episode four was kind of fun. Not sure why they didn’t just go with the already established Pod Racing instead of making up a new form, but it was still a fun enough episode. Didn’t mind Tech getting a lot of the focus.

Episode five was decent too. Fun enough treasure hunting adventure.

It did seem like season one had a bit more of an over arching story whereas so far season two is more stand alone episodes.
