| Artoo Detour
This story is a fun detour from overall war as R2D2 gets captured after an incident. There are lots of episodes that take us away from the main action, some good and some not so good. This is mostly a good one really as it is enjoyable and quite action packed without major letdowns. It is not exceptionally good in any respect and has a couple of unimpressive moments such as a fart joke but overall it is a solid episode.

This shows Anakin as holding R2 in very high esteem and going against the intructions of Obi Wan to risk everything to recover him before he can be handed over to General Grievous. There are some nice bits of dialogue and action and it kept my attention well.

It leads in to an excellent follow up episode.

My rating: 7/10
