The Clone Wars: Episode 11 - "Dooku Captured"

The short, short review: Dooku Captured had a Weequay pirate with a peg-leg, Gundarks, and a Jawa getting punched in the face. Enough said.

The bit longer review: A solid episode, that captures the spirit of A New Hope and the first half-hour of Revenge of the Sith. Getting another chance to see Obi-Wan and Anakin together when they actually liked each other is always welcome. It's a shame that the basic plot, Dooku being captured by pirates and then turned over to Obi-Wan and Anakin, is a superfluous, unnecessary story at its core, since we already know Dooku won't be incarcerated for long. And it doesn't help that the writers already did this exact story with Nute Gunray earlier this season.

Dooku Captured marks the middle of the season. And while it has some flaws, the quality of this show has improved dramatically since the movie came out last summer. Soon I may be able to admit in public that I watch it.
