Star Wars, The Clone Wars

Ok, I'm 40 and not a Star Wars geek. I of course loved the original trilogy, I was a little kid when it all started. My generation grew up on this stuff. Flash forward to when episode 1 came out. Jar jar binks crap. So I blew off all new star wars movies, with good reason. I just now started watching clone wars and I have to say, these cartoons are way better than the last 3 movies.

In my 40's and not a SW geek either. With that said, Clone Wars has an excellent story line.
Haven't watched this season yet but I will over the Summer.

His reviews of the 3 movies are way better than the movies themselves.

Where do the clone wars fit in time compared to the movies? We just watched the first three originals and will likely get the final three to piece the story together.

They roughly take place between Episode II, and Episode III.

My 4 yr old does the force on every auto opening door at a supermarket or retail store. People get a kick out of it, so he thinks the force is real.

Since I didn't pay much attention, my 8 yr old was explaining it to me. He said that Palpatine (who becomes the Emperor) started a war to create a Clone army. The Clone troopers are good guys, but then are turned against the Jedi, becoming the Stormtroopers with the Emperor in charge and Darth Vader (Anakin) leading them. Is he right?

I haven't been able to get into the Clone Wars, I'm more of a Transformers fan. The new Prime show on hubTV seems to be doing the series justice. Except they don't have my favorite Transformer.

I have watched a few episodes with my nephew and I like them. I am a Star Wars nerd though.

I was wanting to pick up the first season from Best Buy since I have a bunch of reward points but none of the local stores have it in stock. Gonna have to order it online.

Why didn't I think of that?! Thank you!!

Talking about "backing up," I have currently have about 1 gig in movies and TV series that I have backed up. My girlfriend's brother is currently in Afghanistan so I sent him a hard drive with about every movie I could get my hands on.

I actually really the cartoons. They are thought out and give more dimension to the characters.

1gig or 1 TB? Thinking you meant TB

I picked up a 1TB hard drive at black Friday 2yrs ago. I am working on a network setup for the house. I have a tad over 100dvd's on it and its only half full or so (I own them on disk) for my own on demand list.
