I wonder if there is such a thing like a "nostalgia effect". I ask this because Season 3 of the Clone Wars has been really sucky.
There's no other way to put it. It started off with a couple of "prequel" episodes, with each episode expanding on a particular episode in Season 2.
Then there were a few "political" episodes with little or no action scenes. They couldn't even do a "normal" episode (Episode 7 - Assassin) properly.
Really sad when you see a great series losing its touch. A bit like seeing Rooney with such poor form and betraying everyone with his "stunt"...
