Yep. 9 p.m. EST on Cartoon Network. The Clone Wars cartoon. If you need help trying to think about the series in a positive light, remember that it was always intended as a TV series, so it’ll certainly be better paced and the animation will likely look better on the small screen. Also, you haven’t seen what’s on tonight?the first episode features Anakin and Ahsoka looking for survivors on a spaceship, and the second episode appears to be a Yoda solo joint, from which the above video clip is taken. So that’s all good. Of course, the battle droids still appear to have been programmed to be utterly retarded. Look, I’m just telling you it’s coming on tonight?don’t shoot the messenger.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
