    Star Wars The Clone Wars tells the story of the war between the Republic and the Seperatist Alliance between Episodes II and III. In this series, we see many familiar characters like Obi-Wan and Anakin, as well as some new faces, most notably Anakin's apprentice Ashoka Tano. Clone Wars has all the action and thrills you would expect from Star Wars. There's lots of exciting space and ground based combat as well as some exciting lightsaber duels. The action is always thrilling and gives you the feel of actually being in combat without being overly violent. The quality of storytelling starts of great and just gets better as the series progresses. The 'Malevolence' story arc is terrific and the 'Ryloth' story arc is gold. Every episode tells a superb story and adds to the rich tapestry that is Star Wars. The CGI animation is outstanding. Clone Wars uses a very stylized type of animation. It's hard to describe, but it looks great. The motion of each character and of the vehicles are smooth and natural looking. Some of the best quality TV animation I have ever seen. The Hi Def transfer makes the animation look even better. On Blu-Ray, the animation has a sharp and clearly defined look. The details really come out clear on the Blu-Ray. The soundtrack is like the Clone Wars movie. The music uses a fusion of various ethnic styles along with some symphonic and rock elements. The music fits the series nicely. Composer Kevin Kiner was wise not to try to copy John Williams. One thing I really like about the series is the chance to see characters like Kit Fisto or Aura Sing that we just see in the periphery of the movies get some spotlight time. There are characters that we see just for a few seconds in the movies that actually get thier own epsodes. This really helps to expand the Star Wars universe. This is the best sci-fi series on TV. If you are a Star Wars fan, then this is an essential addition to your Blu-Ray collection. May the Force be with you.

    This is easily the best sci-fi series on TV right now! The Clone Wars Season One starts off strong and just gets better. This series tells the story of the Clone Wars, the war between the Republic and the Seperatist Allaince. There are many exciting space battles, ground battles and some cool lightsaber duels. The series is action packed and has the feel of a Flash Gordon serial, very exciting! One thing I love about the TV series is that many characters who were only on the periphery of the movies get a spotlight here. General Grevious is developed very well in the TV series. Clone Wars starts off as a superior TV series and each episode improves on the series in terms of both storytelling and quality of animation. The first half of the TV series was very good, the second half was gold! The 'Ryloth' story arc was truly outstanding! A good portrayal of combat that gives the intensity of being in the midst of battle without being too violent. My only complaint is that Jar Jar Binks makes a few appearances, but this is not enough to ruin it for me. Well-written, very well-animated and action packed! Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an awesome addition to the Star Wars saga! May the Force be with you!

    Having watched every episode as it aired, it was very nice to watch them in uncropped, widescreen format without the network logo marring the screen. I did enjoy the extended scenes not originally aired on TV. However, I found the DVD set was extremely lacking in bonus features. It should have included the original episodes as well as the "decoded" episodes aired between the seasons. It would have been nice to have some photo galleries of character development and concept design. I will be very upset if they release a Season One Special Edition down the line with all of these things included, though I imagine they will.

    For true collectors of star wars

    At last it came out! 22 episodes of the first season. What I did'nt like about it is I was hoping there would be a selection on the menu to make it a de-coded episodes.Now that would be something really extra!I hope their not planning to make that kind to come out soon. The booklet is not of importance ITS ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE DISK! Metal case would really make it a truly collector's edition. The extras like all other dvds with extra-just extra.

    I'm glad I waited to buy all episodes in this collection. Previously released DVD's only had a few episodes. Now I have all the episodes and they are in BLUE RAY! I didn't think you could improve on the quality of a cartoon, but the blue ray version colors just jump at you and fill a dark room like you are in the action!

    My boy loves Star Wars! He plays this movie twice a day and is precious for him. This cartoon is very well adapted for little kids, so "Cience Fiction" is presented in a very unharmful way to children.
