Dave Filoni comes through again for Star Wars fans. He's producing the 7th season that had been planned for the animated Clone Wars series. Many of the stories for the season had already been written and even blocked out in rudimentary CGI when it was cancelled when Disney first purchased Lucasfilm.

Clone Wars had superb stories, fully developing Anakin Skywalker's development as a Jedi and then sowing the seeds of moral failure that would clearly lead to his desolation in Revenge of the Sith.

Clone Wars is also rich in its development of the clone troopers, getting deep into their ranks as they showed individuality, moral commitment to their vocation and each other, and then to the Jedi. It's tragic because we know how it's going to end, yet enthralling to get into their challenges and victories--and humanity.

Clone Wars also moves into unquestionably the most mature plots and scenes of all on-screen Star Wars. Much of it, particularly in the last three televised seasons, is really too gritty for children. Take, for instance, the scene where Ventriss skewers a clone trooper (one we grew to like) on her light saber, pulls him to her, and kisses him as he dies.

Glad so see it returning.

Well done, Filoni. Why aren't you running all of Star Wars for Disney?

Hard to say--my understanding is that this Clone Wars production will be streamed. There is a distinct advantage to streaming, particularly for science fiction fans.

SF usually does poorly in airtime ratings competition. SF does much better if it can allow a loyal audience to find it. That's why Star Trek initially failed in ratings, but succeeded wildly in syndication.

Inasmuch as I'm ending our relationship with cable programming, I'd just as soon they stream it.

It's all going to be the same thing in 5-10 years.

The only reason millions of people still pay for cable at all is because providers like Time-Warner and Xfinity bundle their Internet service with cable TV --- and they are the only game in town in vast swaths of the country. I don't exactly live in the sticks, but we have to pay for cable, which we never watch, because that is the only way to get high-speed Internet in our area. We could cut the cable service and have Internet only --- and pay more to do so. So we keep paying for cable that we never watch.

So Xfinity can continue to tell their advertisers that they have X million subscribers and can continue to sell them commercial time. Even though X millions are no longer watching.

Ain't capitalism great!
