I watched the television animated series Clone Wars tonight... one episode, at least. While I have seen an installment or two before on tape, this was the first time my attention was engaged; must be the watching-live thing.
What a total waste of time. As Globe and Mail writer John Doyle might say, "Crap!". The animation is terribly uninteresting, with surfaces, including skin, metal, plastic, and sand, all coming across with a super-matte finish. Where is the glossy enamel look? Isn't R2-D2 a little shiny in places? It's as though everything is painted using flat colours and then given a once over with Krylon [TM] matte spray. Clone Wars is an ugly looking show with a narrative about as interesting as one of Fred Flintstone's home movies.
