    I could see some of them having defects and maybe aging slower as a possible explanation.

    Well ever since you know who showed up in Rebels, it kinda became that.

    I mean, Ahsoka appeared in it, voice actors from CW return to reprise their characters (Yoda notwithstanding).

    I feel like there's a pretty good chance a lot of ideas that never came to light in CW will get some sort of reference or screentime in Rebels.

    I've stopped watching Rebels. It never really clicked with me.

    Bit of a juxtaposition here, thought I'd point out just how counterintuitive the whole thing is.

    Anyway, depending how much you saw of Rebels, it got just as good as the 2nd or 3rd seasons of Clone Wars towards the end of the first season, it's at least worth looking into.

    As for the bonus shtuff, I can't see myself enjoying half-animated snippets, or the concept art, it just reminds me that those characters/designs are never going to appear.

    I liked the Clone Wars because it was war time. Battles, politics, the whole shebang.

    I stopped watching Rebels after episode 7.

    The politics episodes of SWTCW were SO BORING. There are real life politics that interest me more. And honestly, if the big thing Clone Wars had going for it was the enormous cast that got equal development despite being so vast. Rebels is kind of the opposite, where every character gets REALLY fleshed out, but there are only so many characters.

    I don't remember exactly, but it starts to get really good like, after the halfway mark.

    You stopped at a rather inopportune time.

    Maybe you can jump back in when season 2 starts because that's when things presumably start getting more militarized in which we'll get to see rebel squadrons fighting against the Empire.

    Ok I'll admit. I missed episode 8 and I just stopped. Cause watching the show wasn't my top priority.

    Time to start again.
    Seriously, you stopped just when it was getting good.

    I watched half of Rebels, it's completely different in tone, which bums me out.

    Lando and then really Tarkin's arrival was when the series really started consistently delivering. As well as the Yoda episode.

    I have high hopes for season 2, considering that there are no more secrets about there being a larger rebellion and the Empire's attention has fully turned towards their disruptive antics.

    Also, poster for season 2:

    I loved TCW but if they were going introduce the Yuuzhan Vong then I'm glad it was cancelled when it was.

    So Ventress' ship is going to show up in Rebels, I guess that means Ventress too. Awesome.

    The same ship model sure, IDK about Ventress though. The concept art of Vos holding her makes me think she will not make it past the Clone Wars era.

    Nah if they were going to kill her off they wouldn't be teasing it. I'll be pissed if they do and Vos survives, Asajj is more important than generic charming rogue #2567 Vos.

    I don't think Clone Wars had a consistent tone to compare it to. You would either have darker episodes that focus on the war or episodes with comedic relief characters taking the lead. Honestly, I like Rebels more consistently at this point, but I don't think it has reached the high points of Clone Wars just yet.

    I can't friggin wait!

    About that....

    You are going to be getting what you wanted after all, with a familiar character and some back up.
