On watching “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”

This is a pretty deep dark show. No shying away from the death and killing, the loneliness of command, the choice of clones as a fighting force. Then, behind everything is the knowledge of what is to come, the fall of Anakin, and the corruption of the Republic.

Working my way through the series, almost done season 1.

I don’t have anything deeper, but I feel a deep sadness in knowing the future of these characters, and learning the lesson that you can only be victorious in the moment, and that it all can be wiped away while you did everything right. Odd to feel that from a animated show, but I think that is my expectations clashing with my reality.
