Because of recent events on The Mandalorian (no spoilers) I decided to watch Clone Wars. I’m about 6 episodes in and it is horrible. It is so formulaic:
Anakin disobeys orders for some personal mission
Refuses to train his padawan Ashoka, instead shutting her down each time with, “STFU, human man talking here.”
He wins his battle, not by skill or good planning or listening to others’ advice but because General Grievous and the droid army are so incompetent.
He gets back and everyone acts like he has once again single-handedly saved the Republic.
As I’m moving on in the episodes, at least some clones are dying. The way some troopers are out in the open when the droid army attacks it should be more like the shower scene in The Rock.
And I’m still waiting to see how Anakin lost his “Jedi Master” status between Clone Wars and Episode 3.
Anakin is such a bad teacher/manager I’m surprised Ashoka doesn’t post walls of text on our Workplace Rants thread.
