REVIEW: Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Secret Weapons
From Megan Crouse’s review of the latest episode of The Clone Wars:
“Secret Weapons” is a light, droid-centric episode that feels disconnected from the rest of the season. It’s not new for The Clone Wars to be schizophrenic in its content, though. Season Four was a perfect example, with its Wizard of Oz-meets-Droids episodes and the continuity-shaking return of Darth Maul. The recent Young Jedi arc unified the child side and the adult side of the show very well, telling a story that was at times very serious and dealt primarily with preteen characters. The show’s desire to target two different demographics, however, does not excuse an episode as unfunny and patronizing as “Secret Weapons”. Assumptions like “small things are funny” and “droids running into walls are funny” just made me, as an adult viewer, unsure what I was supposed to be getting out of this.
