If I wanted to prep for Ahsoka's appearance in season two of The Mandalorian, but I've never seen a single second of the character on screen before, and am not likely to go back and watch all of The Clone Wars, are there, say, five to eight essential episodes I could watch to get the gist?


Maybe start with season 1 episode 9. It introduces you to characters who show up again and presents a look at younger Ahsoka.

Season 2, episode 8 is a fun episode that introduces another character you'll see again.

Season 5, episodes 17-20 are the best it gets. These are peak clone wars and pivotal Ahsoka character development.
Thanks and gig'em

For catching up on Ahsoka, here are two lists I came up with. Others may chime in with recommendations, but looking at a few lists and what I remember from each episode, this would be my recommendation based on the time you want to invest.

Option 1: Progression of Ahsoka throughout the series, 9 total episodes:

1) Clone Wars: The Feature Film
This is the intro to Ahsoka. Part 1 is whereAnakin and Ahsoka meet during a battle. Part 2 is Anakin and Ahsokas first mission trying to rescue Jabbas kidnapped son.

2) Season 1: Cloak of Darkness

3) Season 1: Storm Over Ryloth

4) Season 2: Lightsaber Lost

5) Season 3: Assassin
Includes Padme

6) Season 3: Wookiee Hunt
Includes Chewbacca and a bunch of little wookies. Maybe too cute, not sure.

7) Season 4: A Friend in Need
Takes place on Mandalore and includes Dooku

8) Season 5: Tipping Points
If I remember correctly, this is a good episode

9) Season 5: The Wrong Jedi
This is the best episode out of the final Ahsoka (Fugitive) arc, and basically where the series left off when it was removed from the cartoon network. See option 2 below.



Option 2: Intro and best of Ahsoka, 5 total episodes:
I think this is the best for getting an introduction to Ahsoka and then seeing her at the end of the series:

1) Clone Wars: The Feature Film

2) The Fugitive arc
Sabotage
The Jedi Who Knew Too Much
To Catch a Jedi
The Wrong Jedi

Perfect! Much appreciated, and I'm sure there are other in the same boat who will really appreciate this too.

If you want the absolute bare minimum essentials, TCW Season 5:

The Jedi Who Knew Too Much. Watching this right now and it's such a great episode. Ahsoka is a total badass.
To Catch a Jedi
The Wrong Jedi

Rebels Season 2

Just saying, I've made time to do this contest while I'm supposed to be writing books about empathy, immunotherapy, the psychology of sales, and the history of seafarers around the world.

Mando Brings Lando in Cold, Crashes Exegol Elite 8


So this is your Elite 8, Star Wars fans. Seven characters you've known for at least 40 years, and one you met six months ago.
On Sweet 16 Friday, the sixth-seeded Mandalorian crushed smooth operator Lando Calrissian 72.9%-27.1% to become the only character in the final eight who is not a #1 or #2 seed. Calrissian was scoreboard watching all day while relaxing in the high rollers room at Flotsam Paradise (I was going to say the casino planet from The Last Jedi, but I skip that part every time I watch it and I've forgotten the name). Onlookers noted Calrissian sweating and muttering "This deal's getting worse all the time," between hands of sabaac, although he did win a small fortune when his Idiot's Array beat a natural 23 in the final hand of the day.
And so the Big Beskar Bopper gets the only man quicker on the draw than him, #1 seed Han Solo, who carved up #5 seed Jabba the Hutt into bite-size pieces and fed him to the Rancor in a 97.9%-2.1% laugher. In the first three rounds of the tournament, Solo's opponents have combined for exactly one vote.

The Mando-Solo winner will take on someone strong in the Force when the Final Four rolls around on Sunday. That's because the top two seeds in the Republic, Rebels, and Resistance bracket are full of sorcerer's ways. Top-seeded Luke Skywalker stopped the Cinderella run of #13 Rosario Dawson 68.8%-31.2% and will face #2 seed Obi-Wan Kenobi, who handled #3 Princess Leia (Obi-Wan, you dog!) 89.4%-10.6%. So it will come to pass that the master takes on the student, but also the student takes on the guy who took off three of his father's four limbs and stole his lightsaber, only to later get killed by the father, but opted not to tell the student that the student was the son of the father, only to have the father then cut off the student's arm who lost his lightsaber, then in an ironic twist of fate the student cut off the father's arm after learning he was the father, and having the master - now a ghost - admit he had been spreading fake news about the father to the student. Then the student took the grandson of the father and screwed that all up, but eventually the student and the father and the master all whispered some words of encouragement in this chick's ear to defeat the real bad guy.

Speaking of convoluted relationships, the Men in Black Regional Final will pit #1 seed Darth Vader against #2 seed Emperor Palpatine. The senator from Naboo struggled against his granddaughter's platonic smoochy-smooch partner for most of the day before getting his Sith together to post a 56.2%-43.8% victory over #3 seed Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Vader treated #4 seed Darth Maul like the one-trick pony he is with an easy 87.5%-12.5% victory.

The winner of the Sith slumber party will duke it out against either the greatest Jedi Master who ever lived or a walking carpet. #1 seed Yoda and #2 seed Chewbacca both posted easy wins in the Sweet 16 matchups. Yoda treated #5 K2SO like the Tin Man without his oil can in a 79.2%-20.8% victory. Chewbacca would have ripped R2D2's arms out of his sockets if he had arms ... well he has that grabby thing he used to get Luke's Nutragrain bar away from Yoda that time, but does that really count? Remember the good old days when R2 had 2 legs, some funny noises, and that one little arm/taser thing? Suddenly in the prequels he's flying and fighting super battle droids and ejecting himself from a cockpit (that sounds nasty) with no problem. Then in the sequels he mostly sits there doing nothing. It's like he's a paranoid schizophrenic. Anyway, Chewie clobbered him 77.1%-22.9%. Talk about letting the Wookiee win! (snare drum/cymbal)
The Elite Eight starts in a few moments.
I have spoken.

It was. I tried to answer TCCTS question but it's been years since I saw this. I do recall Obi Wan being overly critical of Anakin's approach and Anakin replying "Master, I'm doing my best".

Gotta say. After reading that twice, if I die in the next few weeks from Sino Corolla AIDS or whatever this thing is that the Bat & Rat Bar & Grill released upon the planet, I'm pretty fulfilled. It's been a good run world. Thanks Muck. Maybe your best TA work.

My guess is Luke vs Obi-Wan is the back and forth one.

I love Luke, one of the best heroes ever, but I just could not deny that my heart wanted Obi-Wan. Went with him.

LAUGH IT UP, FUZZBALL! Chewbacca Stuns Yoda to Reach Final Four


Turns out size does matter.
Everyone's favorite copilot took center stage Friday night in the Road to Exegol Elite 8. Second-seeded Chewbacca knocked off top-seeded Yoda 58.1%-41.9% to reach the Final Four.
"Sorry now that I saved his planet from the Separatists, I am. Lying I was when I said I would miss him," a clearly irate Yoda said after the final results were tabulated. "What am I to do with all these 'Reach the Final Four, I did' T-shirts? Hmmmmmm?"

A combination of Wookie rage, thinking with his stomach, and whatever the hell he carries in that man purse sent Chewbacca into a Final Four showdown against Darth Vader, who easily crushed his master Emperor Palpatine with a whopping 88.4% of the vote.
"I don't get it," Palpatine said at his news conference. "Everything was proceeding as I had foreseen. Who votes for an asthmatic whiny biatch over a guy who can survive falling like 800,000 feet down a shaft and then like 60 seconds later the equivalent of about 3 billion nuclear bombs going off? Am I missing something here? The path to the Final Four is filled with voters some would consider idiots."

Vader had hoped to see his son on the other side of the bracket, but instead the survivor of the Republic, Rebels, and Resistance bracket is his least favorite person in the galaxy - Obi-Wan Kenobi. The second-seeded Jedi Master easily dispatched of the student he trained for a good 12 hours on a Tuesday before getting killed, taking down top-seeded Luke Skywalker 72.1%-27.9%. "After Padme died of a broken heart (eye roll), I promised Yoda and Bail Organa I would take the child and watch over him. I never promised I wouldn't whip that ass all day long in a popularity contest," Old Ben quipped.

Kenobi will battle top-seeded Han Solo in the other semifinal. The Corellian smuggler crushed The Mandalorian 83.7%-16.3% and was painfully smug about it. "Hokey religions and 10-episode runs on Disney Plus are no match for a good blaster at your side," Solo cracked wise after the rout. "I've streamed from one side of that service to the other. I've watched a lot of strange stuff - why the hell did they give Jeff Goldblum a show? But I've never seen anything to make me believe Oberyn Martell has got the sac to take out Indiana Jones/Jack Ryan in a man-to-man gunfight. There's no Beskar armor protecting my ass. It's all a lot of simple tricks and 46-year-old fan boys."
