The Clone Wars 1.01: Ambush

Our Review

“Ambush” is the first official episode of The Clone Wars, and it’s also one of the best. Many elements are extremely simple, but that doesn’t take away from the magic of Yoda and his wisdom.

The best part about this episode is seeing Yoda in action against a ton of droids. The quiet moments when he shows his true power as a teacher are arguably some of the wisest moments in the entire series.

The episode is quite simple in its plot and animation, but simple doesn’t mean low quality. This episode does exactly what the show is meant to do for young children. It teaches, it entertains, and it’s just good storytelling.
