Craig Titley Wrote
Friday's CLONE WARS!!

I am – Hercules!!
Craig Titley is a big-deal writer-producer who’s such a giant “Star Wars” nerd he didn’t like getting on planes before May 2005 because he was determined not to die before he saw “Revenge of the Sith.” Soon after he saw “Sith” he agreed to take time from his ongoing movie career to script several episodes of the Cartoon Network’s new “Clone Wars” series. His first “Clone Wars” episode, titled “Blue Shadow Virus,” forms the first half of Friday night’s special “Clone Wars” hour. Watch it and feel Craig’s dream realized. The channel describes:
A deadly virus is unleashed in a special two-part episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS. The heroes of the Republic must deal with an altogether different kind of enemy when they face an evil and diabolical mad scientist in “Blue Shadow Virus” and “Mystery of A Thousand Moons,” a special double feature of the hit animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, premiering as an all-new, two-part episode on 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Feb. 13, on Cartoon Network. In “Blue Shadow Virus,” Padmé Amidala is captured while searching for a secret Separatist bio-weapons lab run by Dr. Nuvo Vindi (portrayed by science-fiction icon Michael York), a scientist as cold and calculating as he is evil. While they manage to find the mad doctor and uncover his scheme, they are too late to prevent the release of his deadly concoction – leaving Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi just 48 hours to find the elusive antidote in “Mystery of A Thousand Moons.” Best known for his role in 1975’s Logan’s Run, York brings a sense of manic enthusiasm and righteous fervor to the role of Dr. Vindi. Vindi’s plan for galactic cleansing provides an unusual mission for the heroes of the Clone Wars, pitting them against an unseen threat that cannot necessarily be conquered through direct aggression. According “Blue Shadow Virus” director Giancarlo Volpe, this provides an opportunity to see how the characters respond to a new kind of pressure. “This episode is really about refortifying the Anakin-Padmé dynamic,” Volpe says. “She is his universe and so he’ll compromise the mission to make sure her safety comes first. It’s not what a Jedi is supposed to do, but that’s Anakin.” Once Padmé, Ahsoka and the clones become infected, however, the stakes are raised, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to sort out a solution in “Mystery of A Thousand Moons,” according to director Jesse Yeh. Their quest for the cure serves as a perfect vehicle to spotlight the relationship between the two Jedi, emphasizing their differences as well as their respect for one another. “Obi-Wan and Anakin do things so differently, yet they rely on each other so much that they would trust each other with their own lives,” Yeh says. “Obi-Wan is more than just a mentor trying to teach Anakin the path of a Jedi Master. When needed, he can also be an understanding friend of Anakin and stand by his decisions as well – even if sometimes those decisions could mean a violation of the Jedi teachings. “At the same time, Anakin tries to prohibit his own impulsive thoughts and emotions from taking over, and he is willing to do so totally out of the respect and trust he has for Obi-Wan – even when the life of his true love is at stake at the time.”
9 p.m. Friday. Cartoon Network.

    hmm...

    by codymr

    Kind of a fun show. But they gotta lose those battle droids and bring in something that is more like a cross between a Cylon Centurion mixed with a T800... they should be frightening killing machines created to bring down Jedi, not poorly scripted comic relief. <P> A remember back in '97 SW.com posted a jpg of a battle droid used for TPM. At the time I thought "WOW that design looks really silly." To this day I have no idea how they fit into the SW universe... they always seemed out of place - and I didn't even hate the prequels!

    Duck Droids

    by mothandrust

    Lucas was all gaga over CG and its capabilities. He didn't want the droids to look like men in suits. The skinny duck faced droids were suppose to look like robotic versions of their organic creators. They ended up changing the species of the creators to those two senate things. Oh, I dunno, something like that. Who cares about Star Wars anyway in the year of Trek.

    I Wonder If Padme Will Survive!

    by LaserPants

    Oh wait, thats right, I know she will because Anakin kills her in Episode 3. Oh well, so much for narrative tension.<br><br> Btw, I actually really like this show when it focus on characters other than the major players whose ultimate fate we already know. They should make more episodes focusing on new or background characters and stay away from the major players. But, what do I know, its a crazy popular show and pretty much every kid on Earth loves it.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 8:25 a.m. CST

    I agree with points above.

    by TinSpider

    Overall the show is great but the droids, jar-jar and mis-placed humour let it down. I want more episodes with those commando droids. They were ace.

    by Tacom

    Seriously the one at http://www.starwars.com/video/view/000764.html it is the coolest thing I've seen of SW in the past few years. That moment where Mace Windu jumps from the falling tank onto the STAP flown by a battle droid and makes it collide into another is so badass.

    What I love about Clone Wars...

    by Cannabis Holocaust

    Is how all the characters seem to act noble, heroic, patriotic, and "For the republic!". But since you already know it's all a lie, the show becomes hilarious Starship Troopers-esque black comedy when viewed in that context. I especially enjoyed the last episode after the traitor-clone claims the jedi are enslaving his people and using them as a disposable workforce, Obi-wan and Anakin just kind of laugh and brush him off.

    Why is AICN suddenly reviewing TCW?

    by StarWarsRedux

    Is it because it's suddenly being written by friends of the reviewers? Huh? Sorry, I don't listen to Johnny Come-Lateleys who are probably going to be watching "Dollhouse" in the vain hopes that Whedon doesn't waste everybody's time, anyway. Bring on Mr. York, I say!

    by David Lazarus Long

    I've been vehemently against Clone Wars since Lucas basically told Genndy that his "didn't count" and that he could "do it better", and then proceeded to make a tranny Hutt and gave Anakin a 15 year old girl partner. However... That trailer posted above was pretty sweet. I still hate the animation style. What's with the tall skinny heads on some people and fat, square heads on everyone else? Also: Battle Droids should exist just to be mowed down by the 1000's by rampaging Jedi. It still seems too kiddy. Where is our dark-as-fuck SW epic? Damnit, will someone do a "Tales of the Old Republic" anime and air it on HBO? I want to see arms being chopped off left and right. I want to see the fucking DARK SIDE. Bring on Exar Kun, fuckers!

    This series is excellent!

    by TheContrarian

    As a Star Wars fan who's spirit was crushed after enduring the mostly disappointing prequels, this new show has renewed my faith in SW. It gives me great hope for the live action series. To all the haters of the animated series: I find your lack of faith...disturbing.

  • People keep going on about how good Clone Wars is. I watched another episode, and determined it still sucks. Uninspired animation, bad direction, lousy voice acting.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 5:28 p.m. CST

    I've watched the first 4 episodes (not including the movie)

    by Amy Chasing

    and if you liked the prequels, you'll probably like the show. Otherwise Clone Wars is shelved with Robot Chicken as "shows to watch when there's absolutely nothing else on". <P> Oh yeah, and that Clone Wars seems to be getting posts on AICN, along with Heroes. And yet so many requested good shows aren't (you know which ones they are). Pretty sad.

    No Star Wars doesn't suck now.

    by Amy Chasing

    Just read the ongoing series of Knights Of The Old Republic, Dark Times, Rebellion, and Legacy. I find I look forward to new issues of them. <P> My problem with Clone Wars stems from the fact that the prequels killed the characters. I feel like I could have a beer with Han, Luke & Leia. Obiwan, Anakin & Padme just aren't my kind of people.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 7 p.m. CST

    about damn time this show gets covered on aicn

    by Gungan Slayer

    seriously, what the fuck? Why the absence of CW coverage on AICN? Someone still got a stick up their ass over George Lucas? Fucking get it over it already. anyway, this episode looks pretty promsing.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 7:14 p.m. CST

    Amy Chasing

    by StarWarsRedux

    OT: Characters > Story. PT: Story > Characters. You could have a beer with Han & Leia easier than Anakin and Padme, sure, but the story of the Rebels Vs. Empire was always overly-simplistic at best. The mannerisms of the prequels might've been a little dense, but the narrative was much more interesting and layered. They both have their ups and downs. So far, TCW is doing a pretty good job of blending the best of both worlds. And really what I'm waiting for is this-- Shadows of the Empire.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 8:36 p.m. CST

    To quote Eric Cartman: "This is Cool? This? Is? Cool?"

    by Amy Chasing

    All I can do is urge people to go and watch the Original Trilogy, not the special editions, not the prequels, just Star Wars, Empire and Jedi. See how effortless it all seems. You may think the story is simplistic. I say it knows its genre and does it wonderfully. It's infinitely entertaining and the choice to make the politics take a back-seat to the character stories makes for very interesting viewing. And yet the politics is there, imperial officers vying for position, a planet killer, ancient religious orders - all not completely revealed or explained, but driving the story anyway. <P> Then, if you must, watch the prequels. The way the characters are there, say their lines, but what the OT characters had, these don't. The way the story unveils the making of a Dark Lord and an Empire, but the story just isn't as effortless as the OT - the lack of good character support prevents suspension of disbelief for much of the story and so you're left with what seems like bad fanfic with bad acting. It is very pretty though. It's like comparing Raiders to Crystal Skull, yes they're both adventure movies with similar styles, but one is infinitely more watchable, more approachable, and just simply a better product than the other. <P> But in a world where High School Musical is cool, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that people are now diggin the Clone Wars.

    Let Go of Your Hatred...

    by TuxedoJunction

    Hated the sequels, love The Clone Wars. This is a pretty good series. I agree with the poster who said the best episodes are ones that focus on periphery characters like Plo Kloon and Lumindar (sp?). Anyways, at 34 years old, Clone Wars and BSG ain't such a bad way to spend a Friday night.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 10:14 p.m. CST

    To quote Eric Cartman, in the first place: that ain't cool, frie

    by StarWarsRedux

    I enjoy both OT and PT, and don't see how holding them equal is contradictory. Furthermore, I fail to see anything "effortless" in the OT. If anything, it's easier for me to see the strain, the effort, the absolute creative exhaustion it took to get those movies made in the first place. I can't find a relaxed moment in any of the Star Wars movies, cinematically speaking-- it's all tight plotting, fixed cameras and strictly choreographed action. Effortless cinema is how I think of Casablanca-- films whose brilliance seemed to happen almost by accident, with an alchemous combination of elements that's nearly impossible to predict, let alone set into motion voluntarily. Every episode of Star Wars, on the other hand-- that's the dictionary definition of doing things according to plan, painstakingly blueprinting a movie like a band of thieves executing a master heist. I just don't see how one trilogy is so superior to the other. They just have different assets.

  • Feb. 14, 2009, 12:06 a.m. CST

    Effortless = they make it look easy.

    by Amy Chasing

    It probably isn't, but they're so good they make it look it. OT does this. The first Pirates of the Caribbean does this. Prequels don't. Arguably. The OT is epic fun and doesn't try to be something it's not. The PT tries to be epic fun and isn't. <P> But if you think the prequels are equal in entertainment, interest, and quality as the originals - we're not on different pages, we're in different libraries.

  • Feb. 14, 2009, 8:44 a.m. CST

    PT

    by Dradis Contact

    <p>The only good thing about the PT is how they remind you of the old movies. Sights and sounds - especially sounds.</p> <p>In fact, the other day I saw The Empire Strikes Back on TV and found myself noting the little dumbnesses. That wouldn't have happened before the PT.</p>

  • Feb. 14, 2009, 9:54 a.m. CST

    Never looked easy to me

    by StarWarsRedux

    Part of the reason I see an equality between PT and OT is the fact that each offers different kinds of entertainment, not just in character-driven vs. story-driven conflict, but also in terms of the action they present. The OT was largely gunfights and dogfights, very WWII, while the PT was largely Jedi duels and pilot-acrobatics. Both are equally entertaining to me, as is a more nuanced political narrative in the PT vs. the more nuanced character relationships in the OT. I appreciate the fact that the PT effectively rescued Star Wars from Republican interpretations-- you can spin the OT as a conservative Cold War story against "freedom fighters" up against an "Evil Empire", but the PT inverted everything and revealed further layers of political quagmires deep in the whole motivation for armed conflict. Back in the 80's, Reagan used Star Wars-isms to push his own agressive military-industrialist agenda, but nowadays everybody sees Bush and Cheney as Sith Lords. The PT added loads of intelectual context to the heart & soul content of the OT-- they benefit from one another, rather than diminish.

    I actually liked this two parter. It had a 24 vibe to it with the heroes trying to stop the release of the virus. I got into watching this series because my 5 year old daughter likes it and I watch with her. I have to say I would have loved this series when I was a kid too. It does a better job of capturing the spirit and humor of the OT better than the prequels ever did.

    Worst episodes yet

    by Bono Luthor

    I fucking love Clone Wars. I think it's so cool it's driven me to buy my first Star Wars figures in a decade, which I have on my work desk at home. These, however, were the worst episodes to date. That Mr Freeze guy was like something out of a shitty cartoon and that is the very thing this show has not felt like until now. Just awful. AICN slagged the movie (which I had no problem with because it FELT like old school Star Wars to me)and this lump of crap gets a talkback? I guess when Harry said a friend of his was writing Clone Wars it must have been this guy. Sad, because these must be the most un-Star Wars episodes yet. YUCK. I was really looking forward to the double episode. What a huge let down. Rubbish.

    Seriously, that second episode of Clone Wars they showed that night sucked! It didn't feel like the rest of the series that came before. It felt like standard dumbed down saturday morning crap! DON'T GET HOLLYWOOD HACK WRITERS TO WRITE THIS SHOW! It was sadly apparent that the writer had no "feel" of the series. He just looked at the talking points and went from there.

    WHOEVER WANTS A DARK SW EPIC IS AN IDIOT

    by Earthquake WestCoast

    Star Wars was never a DARK film series! Sure Empire had INTENSE moments. But they were never dark with violence, or dark depressing! Star Wars has always been and will be FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT!!!!! The CLONE WARS is family entertainment. The FAMILY can watch this show TOGETHER, like most of you that have kids have been doing. All you single pathetic fanboys that hate on everything need to get a girlfriend, a good career, and love life.

  • Feb. 15, 2009, 12:57 p.m. CST

    Agreed, WestCoast

    by StarWarsRedux

    Though I, for one, have found plenty of dark moments in each SW film. The only episodes where they really dominated most of the action were ESB and ROTS, which are the only films where that kind of sustained darkness would be appropriate. The second episode from Friay night wasn't bad-- it just felt painfully rushed. If they'd taken the time to let this be a 3 episode arc, rather than 2, it might've been okay. I liked the whole concept of the "haunted" planet of Iego. Nice to see the legendary "Angels". Cool to witness some prototype Death Star technology. Still-- the script for this episode was choking on the action, cramming way too much into barely half an hour. Looking forward to Ryloth.

    by TuxedoJunction

    weren't <i> that</i> bad. Jar Jar is still annoying but these weren't that bad. It's weird, but this series is giving me a new appreciation for Obi Wan's character. I wasn't a huge fan of his development in the prequels but can see a clear connection between this Obi Wan and the one in the original trilogy. He seems wise and stoic and, for lack of a better word, professional.

    by Earthquake WestCoast

    Of course each SW film had dark "moments", but they were just "moments". There's some fans here that want an entire SW film to be dark all the way through. Not just moments. The people who want that are just plain sad. You're right about the second episode, it should of been a three parter. Maybe then they could of taken more time and get the story to seem less "saturday" morning'ish.

    by D.Vader

    Eye-ay-go? Remember in Episode I when Anakin saw Padme and asked "Are you an angel? I hear the deep space pilots talk about them. They live on the moons of Ieaego, I think." <p> This planet of a thousand moons is Iaego (sp?). And when ObiWan asks who the original inhabitants were, the old prospector alien says "The angels,", and in pops an ethereal, glowing alien in robes. Very nice fulfillment of that throwaway line from a movie now almost 10 years old.

    Dark Star Wars? Try reading the comic book series Star Wars Legacy and tell me it wouldn't work. And if you think Star Was can't be dark, you clearly missed key sequences in New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and, oh yeah... the part where Anakin murders a bunch of children in Revenge of the Sith, and then catches fire at the end. You're a fucking dumbass. Fail.

    The Villains have to be "dark", at least

    by Chief Joseph

    And "Roger Roger" ain't dark.<br> Darth Sidious was the only character in the PT that had any menace (no pun intended) to him. He was scary. The Nemoidians and their droids weren't scary, Grevious wasn't scary, Maul wasn't scary, and sadly, Anakin wasn't the slightest bit scary.

    D.Vader: fulfillment of throaway line?

    by onezeroone

    In that case am sure the series won't be over ever coz first they smart-alec writers will try to fulfill EVERY single 'throaway' line in the trilogy and prequels and when done start picking on throwaway lines in the episodes which were woven around fulfillment of throwaway lines from the trilogy and prequels. rinse. repeat.<p> Am feeling kinda lazy right now, else would have made predictions on whatother throwaway lines will be fulfilled next, maybe you could take a shot at prophecies?
