Don't worry, you have the right show. This topic was suggested to us after we left the subject of our 50th installment open to listener feedback and what better way to mark the occasion than by covering something a little outside our normal spectrum. There's plenty to discuss, so listen in for tales of seafaring, dinosaurs, nocturnal accidents and the corruption of young minds!

The recently cancelled CG Clone Wars cartoon caught our interest recently and in turn brought our thoughts back to Genndy Tartakovsky's 2003 adaptation where it all began. Tartakovsky and his collaborators bring their flair for character design and action sequences beautifully into the Star Wars universe, leading to some exhilarating and perhaps fantastical set pieces. Continuity fans beware however as Jerry sets us straight on how the show has played havoc with the carefully established Star Wars chronology.

Arc Troopers are probably real though.

Based on the novels of the same name by Ichiro Sakaki this OVA adaptation excels in world building and illustrating the mechanics of it's magical industries with great economy of cinema. The story manages a bit of pathos for the characters but ultimately falls flat and leaves the viewer wanting, which on the other hand could entice some to delve into the source material and learn more about the series' quite interesting setting. Listen in to find out just how interesting it all is, along with some discussion of Boy's Love adaptations of Micheal Collins
