On the Viewer - Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Episode 16 - "The Hidden Enemy")
 by Fëanor

Clones rule! Seriously, I love the clones. They're so bad-ass. Also bad-ass? The way Anakin just broke that window open. Slash, slash, boom! Damn, dude.

And speaking of the clones being bad-ass, one of them just walked right up to a droid and ripped its head off with his bare hands. That is awesome.

Heh. Finding a mole is hard when everybody looks and talks exactly alike. I'm a little surprised this traitor subplot is moving along so quickly. I mean, they already narrowed it down to a small group of guys, and then told those guys they know one of them is the mole!

Eew. Creepy byplay between Obi-Wan and Ventress.

Hey, I don't see why Chopper shouldn't be able to make a necklace of Battle Droid fingers if he wants to!

And the traitor is discovered! That didn't take long. Seriously, I really feel like they could have done a lot more with that story idea.

Wow, he wasn't any two-bit traitor, either; once he got cornered he set up some pretty serious sabotage.

"My sweet?" I reiterate that the byplay between Obi-Wan and Ventress is really creepy.

Okay, now I find the traitor storyline more interesting, because of the guy's motivation: he was tired of being enslaved by the Jedi and was fighting for freedom. That brings up some fascinating moral and ethical issues about the Jedi and their clone army. (Although admittedly those issues will all be moot when Order 66 comes around.) And now next episode they have to fight about 1,000 Battle Droids with almost no weapons! Nice.

Pretty decent episode. Maybe a little more simplistic than it could have been, but still, exciting with some good action and interesting concepts.
