Through a bit of hocus pocus, I managed to get Netflix despite being Australian, and of course I watched the final Clone Wars episodes.
The Unknown was a pretty good starter to the Order 66 arc - pretty action packed, and the space stuff was awesome, and there even was some creepy stuff like the dead clones in the shuttle and Tup's repetition of "good soldiers follow orders". Droids were complete and utter idiots, but at least they were laughably stupid. Couldn't wait to see where this went.
Conspiracy was pretty intense: Fives trying to save Tup while the Kaminoans try to cover up Order 66 had me on the edge of my seat! I also thought the droid character was pretty likeable - he was pretty funny and it was nice how he realised how he could help Fives. Also, Tup dies... damn.
Fugitive continued that: ORGANIC CHIPS IN EVERY CLONE! FIVES ON THE RUN! Was pretty enjoyable.
Orders... damn. Fives dying was actually pretty sad, even if I was anticipating it. Watching him struggle while drugged and breaking down was heart wrenching to watch. It did slow down quite a bit for this episode, but beside the taxi driver and the drunk clones (did ANYONE expect to see drink clones? XD), it was tolerable. I actually liked how we didn't see Palpatine explaining the Sith plot to Fives, yet we know we heard it. The inhibitor chip stuff was pretty interesting - so order 66 is actually from this. Also, the ending, where Palpatine just shrugged it all off and the jedi go back to being suspicious (and even when Fives was explaining to Anakin, he still couldn't believe him because he's close to the Chancellor). Also, starting the episode in the same place where Palpatine put on the Darth Vader suit on Anakin? XD
Overall, this was a great arc - we already ended last season with a fugitive type story, but it was still great to see Fives try to discover this mystery, and the characters were likeable except for a few minor loons in the Coruscant underworld. It also did manage to get pretty emotional, and the way Fives went was pretty cruel. I was kind of anticipating his death, but it still was a big downer. My big question is that I can't help but wonder what Rex was thinking after Fives' death, and if it ties in with his ultimate fate.
An Old Friend started very slowly - I was thinking "don't tell me this is another one of those slow political episodes", and I didn't care that much about what was going on. Things finally started to get interesting when Anakin showed up, though I'm still kind of confused about what is going on.
The Rise of Clovis was also fairly slow, but it was more watchable this time around, mainly because we got a bit more focus on Anakin this time around.
Crisis at the Heart was kind of interesting with how Palpatine wanted to gain control of the banks, but the rest of the episode bar Clovis' sacrifice didn't really reach beyond "decent/good".
This arc was definitely weaker than the Order 66 one, but it isn't too surprising given that it is focusing more on economics than the actual wars going on.
The Disappeared Part 1 was kind of interesting - besides Jar Jar getting a bit too grating at times, it was actually pretty enjoyable (I even chuckled at a few of the Mace and Jar Jar interactions - also, the mere idea that Jar Jar has a girlfriend is hilarious). Was interested in what's going on, and how this might relate to the Nightsisters. I also found the idea of the anti-Jedi views on Bardotta quite interesting, in particular their criticism of them stealing their children. Also, I must say I can't be the only one who got Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom vibes with the cult and stuff. XD I actually found it harder to enjoy part 2, probably because I was getting tireder of Jar Jar, but whenever Talzin was on screen I was hooked. I'm guessing she was weakened after Massacre, given how she seemed to be disintergrating throughout the episode. Just once question - was her disintergrating at the end actually her dying, or was she just teleporting? Rest of the episode was alright, and the arc overall was decent. Enjoyed it a bit more than the Clovis arc, and I would've enjoyed it even more if Jar Jar would shut up for a bit.
The Lost One was pretty interesting... the detective type elements worked well given that Sifo-Dyas is very mysterious. I must say I am quite curious as to what is going on, especially if Sifo-Dyas had ties with Dooku.
Voices was slow, but unlike Clovis it didn't bore me because I was actually interested in what was going on. I must wonder if Yoda recognised Sidious at all, and who instructed Qui-Gon to choose Yoda.
Destiny... WTF? This was a pretty good episode, but it was so friggin' weird! The Priestesses were kind of creepy actually, as well as the visions. Also, Ahsoka vision. XD I like how Yoda is actually being tested here, too.
Seriously, this was even weirder than the last. Don't get me wrong, it was a pretty good episode, but I'm just completely confused. XD But hey, we got Mark Hamill as a vision of Darth Bane!
Overall the arc was good, but... what the heck just happened?
So yeah, I think you can tell which of the new arcs was my favourite.
