Hell Yes! I've been hangin' all week for this as well. Thanks so much for the upload, I'll be back to share my thoughts in a bit.

What a great episode, very tense in some places. I like the way Aurra was portrayed, as well as "Lucky" Boba. Boba's intro was really well done, cannot wait for the double episode.


I was wondering how long it would take, before we saw the stun effect, from a blaster. The only time we saw it, was at the beginning of ANH?

This episode was very cool. I like how they used this episode to show what it looks like inside the Venator class Star Destroyer. I'm glad that they showed Boba being human than cold blooded since it's more believable considering he's still a kid and all. I love the interaction between Boba and the cadets and full pledged clone troopers.

Not a huge deal, but I noticed that they made a mistake by calling it a DC-15A blaster when it's really a DC-15s.

Symbolically, Boba turning his back on the cadets is along of Anakin murdering the younglings. Visually, both scenes have the same feel, as Boba literally looks like his clone brethren and Anakin used to be a towheaded Padawan. In both cases, the characters are turning on representations of their innocent self.

Obviously, Boba’s choice wasn’t as final as Anakin’s. Boba’s decision is just another step toward perdition, while Anakin’s actions seemed to cinch it. As Mace is a compassionate Jedi, he may feel guilty for taking Boba’s father away from him. If so, he could also feel obligated to "save" Boba from his father's lifestyle. This would be a nice parallel to Ben and Luke's relationship.

When Aurra showed up last season, I was pretty unmoved. However, I now see her appeal. I think her hotheadedness will play well off of Boba’s stoic angst. Maybe it’s her complexion, but Aurra reminds me of the Joker.

This reminded me of the second episode of the first season, and also the one with the clone traitor. Somehow those type of (less actiony) episodes often turn up to be my favorites.

The Boba arc is strong so far, and I'm guessing they are preparing some interesting turn for it in the season's final episode.

Thanks for the file and yes, this was yet another awesome episode. I think Bobba's "disappearances" wouldn't go unnoticed under normal conditions but since we got a Cruiser falling to the atmosphere for that, I can forgive the writers. Can't wait to see the final episode, I hope it will be action packed to make up for all of the "slow" episodes in the second season :heavymetal:

Also I hope the Admiral is not dead :heavymetal:

I agree and like this Admiral way more than Yularen since Yularen gives off a snobby personality to me.

What I loved about this episode is how not only show Boba's mission and actions, but show more of the inside of the Venator class Star Destroyer. It was cool to see the full pledged clones interacting with the cadets and how they try to toughen up the kids. I like the intensity when the ship was about to give out and crash since we always see the Veneator ships get blown up quite easily.

Top post has been updated with not only 720p but 1080p too.

The timing of this episode was on target given this week seen Kick-Ass premeire. Again some of the best moments of this episode were the background shots. For example, the Jedi Cruiser segments alluding to 1977's The Star Wars's iconic Star Destroyer underbelly opening.

I would support a Shadows of the Empire movie in 3D animation but only if it was as dark as it was written.

ok fellows I'm new to this forum, so please take it easy on me for asking this question here. If it should be somewhere else, please feel free to move it to wherever it should be Mr. Moderator.

I enjoy the shows and enjoy seeing them again via the upload sites megaupload and others. However, lately these last few episodes have come from the UK's SKY network and are in a different frame rate than some earlier downloads were (earlier episodes were 23.976 'NTSC'?). These later episodes from SKY are in the 25 fps rate (PAL)?

These later episodes in the 25 fps, when viewed sound like the actors voices are sped up versus the original airing sound. If I want to slow these down to 23.976 fps, what is a good program to use, and are you folks using or doing about it?

It's quite noticeable and annoying to view the episodes this way the video quality is great and no commercial breaks (or hints of any even) is wonderful to see. I'd like to see the episodes as 'sounding correctly'

Thanks ever so much to whomever is uploading these! I'd just like to see them without them sounding sped up a bit.

Suggestions for doing this would be greatly appreciated.
