So, I’m confused by Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  Both the movie and the new Cartoon Network TV show.

Okay – Episodes 1 – 3 were about making George Lucas tons more money.  As a side note, they were also intended to show us the descent of Anakin Skywalker from annoying little child savant to evil Sith Lord.  Depending on who you talk to, they either accomplished this feat quite well or they destroyed something sacred and held dear to an entire generation.

Let’s go with the theory that they did it well, that they showed Anakin’s slow change into the evil sith Lord, Darth Vader.  Episode 1 showed us Anakin as a child, Episode 2, an angry young man who wanted to do things his own way and in Episode 3, we saw a man twisted by his own anger and fear into doing things that he wouldn’t otherwise do.

Given this progression, The Clone wars makes no sense.

“Let’s give Anakin a spunky young Jedi Padawan who makes him laugh and send em on some light hearted adventures!”

Um, what?

I am so confused…
