Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "The Box"


In this episode, Anakin Skywalker eerily faces a similar dilemma to the one Luke battled in the Empire Strikes Back - does he rescue Obi-Wan, or be patient and wait? Yoda pleads with Anakin to stay, but with no success. Obi-Wan, still disguised as Rako Hardeen, enters a deadly bounty hunter tournament held by Count Dooku. Several interesting bounty hunters make their debut in this clip, as Rako and Cad Bane make their way through a level of the Super Mario Bros. style deathtrap called The Box.

Regular Show – "Think Positive"


Regular Show is here due to popular demand! Honestly, I never watched the show before this week, and it's a nice throwback to the silly fun of Ren & Stimpy. In the first clip, Benson is called into Pops' office and told to stop yelling at Mordecai and Rigby, or else he's going to get the axe.


This episode shows us all what happens when we keep the anger in, pressing it down a layer at time. Rigby and Mordecai love this, running amok without Benson's yelling, until Benson lets his rage out and destroys an entire park. The park is eventually spared, but Rigby and Mordecai walk away with permanently damaged hearing.


Marvel Anime: Blade – "Dead on Arrival"


This episode features a nice flashback scene showing a younger Blade defending a young girl from the vampire Baron Howard. During the battle, Blade meets Noah Van Helsing, a vampire hunter, and Noah cures Blade of his vampire cravings and teaches our favorite slayer how to hone his craft.

DISCUSSION

Although I thought that CLONE WARS episode "The Box" was reasonably entertaining, I couldn't help thinking...

Bounty Hunters are businessmen.

You know what would happen if you took "11 of the most dangerous Bounty Hunters in the galaxy" and said, I'm going to put you into a test environment that's probably going to kill over half of you (and pretty much at random, because unless you happen to be a secret Jedi, you're not going to be able to get through these tests), and only then will I send the remainder, unpaid for the risk they've already entailed, on a dangerous mission?"

I think most of them would walk away. Or put you as Number One on the hit list. Because you don't get to be the 11 most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy by playing these kind of games.
