Clone Wars Conversations officially commences! This year Dave, Maff, Mike and occasionally Megan will be reviewing every episode of the 2008 Clone Wars animated series. They’ve reviewed The Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones and the Clone Wars movie, so now they delve into the entire first season, including all 22 episodes!

In more detail, they first talk about their general thoughts on the first season before Megan talks about her highlights and favourite characters. The squad then talk about the animation style before Megan goes to bed. The boys then talk in-depth about each standalone episode, full arcs and their high & low points of the series, including the clone’s personalities, the villains, the horror elements and where Maff thinks the show is going, given there is very little dramatic tension for the main protagonists. Near the end, Mike also confirms the chronological watching order of the first 3 seasons of The Clone Wars!
