"You'll have to do better than that, my darling." - Obi-Wan Kenobi

Finally, we have arrived to the Clone Wars. At least, sort of. Today, we tackle 2008's The Clone Wars, a prelude meant to introduce the audience to the then-upcoming TV series. Join us as we meet overeager Padawan Ahsoka Tano, ambitious Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress, and a pair of Hutts who've left us with... mixed feelings. 

Next Time: Episodes 1-4 of The Clone Wars.

Bonus: A More Civlized Q&A
01:31:08

Later this month, the crew here at A More Civilized Age will be launching a humble Patreon, with a monthly Q&A podcast as a bonus to our supporters. But since that Patreon isn't up yet, and because wanted to give folks a taste of what's to come, we wanted to do a free bonus episode for y'all this week. So, enjoy, and thank you all for sending in your questions!

If YOU would like your questions considered for a future episode, you can send it to amorecivilizedage@gmail.com! And as a final reminder, we'll be back next week with The Clone Wars (2008). See you then!

02: Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
03:23:01

"We need a system where the politicians sit down and discuss the problem, agree what’s in the best interest of all the people, and then do it.”
“That’s exactly what we do. The trouble is that people don’t always agree.”
“Well then they should be be made to.”

The Phantom Menace  raised questions. Perhaps, you hoped, Attack of the Clones might answer them. Unfortunately, Episode II itself only offers a litany of new lines of inquiry. 

How many nations are part of the Galactic Republic? Why does Padme ever give Anakin the time of day? Who the hell is Sifo-Dyas? Why don't the Jedi ever seem to help people? Why, oh why, do we spend so long in this terrible droid factory? And has anyone ever apologized to Frank Oz?

Join us as we breach the horizon of these questions and more. Begun, the Clone War has.

"It's like poetry. They rhyme."

What ever happened to the glory days of the Galactic Republic? Did it all fall apart because of the masterful manipulations of a dark lord of the Sith? Or may there have been some cracks in the foundation already? 

Join Rob Zacny, Alicia Acampora, Natalie Watson, and Austin Walker as they try to answer those questions, kicking off their journey into the Clone Wars by first revisiting Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
