Delusions of Grandeur Episode 8: It’s a Bug Hunt… With Zombies

ahsoka-tano-barriss-offeeOn this week’s Delusions of Grandeur: What’s up with sending a Padawan to do a Jedi’s work? Is it possible to do a mashup of “The Walking Dead” and “Aliens”? (Spoiler: it is!) It’s been established that Clones can reproduce, even cross-species. Will that mean that the entire galaxy will one day be populated by descendants of Jango Fett? All this and more as we discuss The Clone Wars episodes:

  • 2.6 Weapons Factory
  • 2.7 Legacy of Terror
  • 2.8 Brain Invaders
  • 2.9 Grievous Intrigue
  • 2.10 The Deserter
  • 2.11 Lightsaber Lost

and Star Wars: Rebels episode:

  • 1.1 Droids in Distress

Delusions of Grandeur Episode 7: Babies and Ex-Boyfriends, War is Hell, and a Spark of Rebellion

landing-at-point-rain-20091103040937305In this weeks episode of Delusions of Grandeur, we muse that nobody in the Star Wars universe has adequate back-ups of their important files. Baby Jedi, can they get cuter? And do all children in the galaxy have that Twilek doll? Did Bonnie Burton design it? Is whiny cartoon Anakin still degrees cooler than whiny live-action Anakin? (Spoiler: Yes.) Also, we see some intense battle scenes that make G.I. Joe look like The Care Bears.

This weeks episodes:

  • 2.1 Holocron Heist
  • 2.2 Cargo of Doom
  • 2.3 Children of the Force
  • 2.4 Senate Spy
  • 2.5 Landing at Point Rain

We also start season one of Rebels with “Spark of Rebellion”!

Delusions of Grandeur Episode 6: Twileks, Bounty Hunters and Rebels

Untitled

Hera Syndulla: Legacy of Rebellion

A very special episode as we wrap up Clone Wars season one, and start discussing Star Wars: Rebels!

What’s with the tail-heads? How does it get decided how many tails do they get on their heads? Is it equal to the number of chins they have? Why do we like bounty hunters so much? Will Clones with cool names ever survive the Clone Wars? How old does a padawan have to be before she becomes a military commander and leads clones with cool names to their death?

We also give a really glossed over summary of Star Wars: Rebels before diving into the Season Two Siege of Lothal

Delusions of Grandeur Episode 5: She Wore Blue Virus…

2015404-311444_aaylasecuraNow that we’re establishing Clones as individuals, does it make sense that some of them are not on board with the program? Is it possible to name a Star Wars creature without referring to the earth creature it’s based on? Is it okay with James Cameron that the blue people we meet this week are from the world of Pantora? Does the mad scientist stereotype always have to be the nazi mad scientist?

These are questions raised as Mondo and Joe cover Season 1 Episodes 13-18 of Clone Wars.

personnage-jar-jar-binks-8690

This week, we cover episodes 5 through 12 of the first season of the Cartoon Network’s Clone Wars. We discuss the growing individuality of Clone Troopers, how the Jedi are starting to lose their way, and how Jar Jar Binks works so much better as a cartoon character in a cartoon setting, than as a cartoon character in a live action setting. Also, Droids! Dooku! The 7-Up Jedi! Mon Calamari in traps!

All this and more!

Delusions of Grandeur Episode 3: Begun the Clone Wars Has

ashokarottaIn this episode of Delusions of Grandeur, we discuss Star Wars: The Clone Wars,  the movie and the first four episodes of the Cartoon Network series 1.01: Ambush (Yoda-centric), and then the Malevolence story arc in episodes 1.02-1.04.

Some of the questions we address: Are Clones people too? Is it easier to look cool using the force as a CGI cartoon? Does Anthony Daniels have a career outside of playing C-3PO? Is Ashoka Tano going to die before we get to Revenge of the Sith? Are Hutt babies just the best ever?
