    1.9: Alright. So
    it has all the feel of this being some kind of in-fight between the Kaminoans who are in-turn being squeezed by the empire for the price of the clones they supply. I'm guessing the Kaminoans just want to make more clones using Omega as a basis then.

    There's gotta be
    a Boba appearance coming.. so many links to him.

    Not in-fighting on Kamino or anything political. I think it is just that Nals Se actually cares about Omega.

    I’m curious about the purpose of creating a female clone. Was it just an early experiment to see if they could.

    Will be fun to see Boba’s reaction to having a sister. I don’t know if Clone Wars ever showed us his feelings about Clones. Filoni released voice recordings and early storyboards for a scene intended for Clone Wars of a showdown between Boba and Bane. I think we might get to see that on this show.

    I wonder if Omega will turn up in the Fett series? We know Filoni will have her survive.

    I wonder how much Fennec knows about her bounty. Will she tell Boba in their series, if he doesn't show up in this

    They may cross paths in Bad Batch which could lead to why he saves her on Tatooine.

    Since she is being to protect when the need arises could lead to a friendship with Omega and the Batch and this would also factor into it.

    1.10: That was fun.
    Bit of action in the mission and then the character development for Omega. Guessing Hunter will do some sort of combo of battle strategy training but also seeking opinions from Omega for strats as time goes by.

    With the debt cleared they can move on whenever they want now.

    No idea how that game worked.

    Once Hunter said she was staying behind I fully expected it to be Omega having an adventure on Ord Mantell with a few minutes devoted to the Squad - because that is what would look d happen in Rebels if Ezra had been left out of a mission.

    Happy I am wrong and that this show is proving to be about the whole group and not The Omega Show.

    I have to stop watching it so late though. I have get halfway into the episode and I start to get really trie.

    My guess is that they will stay with Cid for a long time. She is someone they need need in the world of mercy and bounty hunters and is starting to show she can be trusted with Omega’s safety.

    Just caught up on the last three episodes and thought they were pretty good.

    It was cool to see
    Cad Bane
    return.

    I think he was originally
    meant to be killed off in a fight against Boba but based on the metal plate and scratches on his face he might have survived it. Maybe that's something they'll show on the book of Boba ?

    Last episode was alright, thought it was weird that
    the group didn't reconsider their anti-separatist stance now that the republic has turned into the empire and the senator was anti empire as well

    Seeing the at-te being used to suppress the protests was cool though.

    The fight between Bane and Boba was meant to occur The Clone Wars and I thought they might have that happen in Bad Batch instead it you make a good point about Bane looks different. So maybe that altercation did happen.

    Most of the Batch were okay with taking the job. Echo was the one most hostile about Separatists and he did change his option of that senator at the end.

    The whole opening sequence was cool with the citizen’s getting riled up and the clones pushing them around.

    1.13: Wrecker is .. once again.. the best! 🙂


    I get the feeling this episode was to:

    setup Durand to be either an Ally or source of Jobs into the future.


    Real Pitch Black feel to those creature in this episode.

    Episode 14


    Liked the clone commandos actually putting up a decent fight, this is the first appearance of commandos I think since Disney bought them. There were in Clone wars but before that only.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1.14: Dayum! That was a good episode! Real proto

    Empire starting to emerge

    Really liked Wreckers

    lines.. I'm Preparing nods I'm charging up 😁

    Then at the end..

    I was like.. Nooo Hunter, Nooo Gonk... Uh oh..

    Crosshair.. really does feel dangerous at this moment.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,686 ✭✭✭ Relikk


    The aerial dogfight was a real highlight in that episode.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1.15: Jeez.. that felt a bit wierd seeing

    Kamino go like that.. like a bit of a bummer. Like a little nostalgia. Wierd wasn't expecting that.


    Separately, I'm guessing they've survived the bombardment ok though and the next episode will be focused on getting out of there.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1.16: Good season finale.

    I totally thought

    azi was a goner

    Liked the moment

    where Omega said it to crosshair about being a brother... that episode really brought out the "she's older than them" feel to me.. I hadn't got that before


    Then at the end.. that

    ominous moment and sound effect.. guessing (if I haven't already) that this is the Snoke/Sidious clone program.. unless they've got even more clone plans



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,486 ✭✭✭✭ Vicxas


    I was expecting a lead up to them Retconning Luke Skywalker to be a clone or something at the end.

    So I started to watch this last night. I must say it was very good much better than I expected but I was quiet surprised too as I expected the episode to be 30 mins long tops and when I seen it was over an hour long I was like OK thats a long cartoon. I honestly thought at the beginning I would not watch it all but I did. I see the next episode is 30mins. Is that the same with all the rest of them?



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,686 ✭✭✭ Relikk


    Yeah, pretty much. The rest probably average at about 25 minutes each. The 6th episode is 21 minutes long.

    recently subscribed to Disney+ so i can watch Star Wars to my hearts content. Do I need to watch The Clone Wars before I start The Bad Batch?

    The Bad Batch made their first appearance in the final season of the Clone Wars, and a member of the Bad Batch was featured in earlier seasons. While you'd be missing out on some background on them, it's not a huge amount, but I would suggest watching the Clone Wars anyway as the majority of it is very good.

    Here's a good guide, in chronological order of events, of recommended arcs to watch if you don't want to watch the entire series: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheCloneWars/wiki/recommended



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Trying to understand my feeling on this..

    like.. it feels like you could get away with not watching clone wars before bad batch

    but.. it also feels like you'd be missing out a bunch!



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,038 ✭✭✭✭ Varik



    More Clone commandos, some CIS droids still around, a pair of Wookies including order 66 surviving padawan Gungi.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    A lot going on there but feels right. Feels like Omega is a bit in disguise with the headware.
