The Clone Wars: Episode 6 - "Downfall of a Droid"

Want to get through this using the fewest words possible. TV of this quality doesn't deserve that much of my time.

Downfall of a Droid pretty much sucks. Lame techno score, fart jokes, weird pacing and dialog delivery, and annoying characters abound. There are a few good bits - the opening space battle, Ron Perlman, the assassin droid fight, and RD-D2's escape. But with the exception of Ron Perlman, all of them are more enjoyable with the mute button on.

According to the Star Wars website, Downfall of a Droid, the worst episode of the series yet, was the second episode produced, while Rookies, the best episode, was the fourteenth to be produced. So it looks like these people are learning from their mistakes, but there's probably still some shitty episodes left to go.
