The Clone Wars • FINAL SEASON Review

Today we’re wrapping up our watch of the final season of The Clone Wars, season 7. We’re looking at the clones and how their story plays out, we’re looking at Ashoka in her days after leaving the Jedi, and… drumroll please… we’re learning more about Order 66.

Jeff and I were not able to make our schedules line up this week, but he will be back to talk about our next movie, Revenge of the Sith, soon.

Meanwhile, we have two exciting pieces of news!

First, the Stranded Panda Podcast Network, of which both this ‘cast and my other one, Superhero Ethics are proud parts, has launched a new podcast that I’m a part of- Panda Vision! Here we talk about shows with superhero or other geek themes, that don’t fit nearly into a ‘verse. Our inaugural episodes where on The Boys, and we’ve got more coming soon about Umbrella Academy- both to gear up for the upcoming next seasons. Check it out at or by searching for PandaVision on your podcast app.

Secondly, our sister podcast, Superhero ethics is coming up on its 100th Episode, and it’ll be live on Twitch, this Thursday, 7/16 at 6 PM Central!

We will have a panel of five (five!) all-star Superhero Ethics personalities, as we talk about some of our favorite geeky ethical questions. Come be a part of it live! Share your thoughts, ask us questions, and we’ll respond as best we can.
You can also add questions beforehand by emailing

Our full line up of guests includes former co-hosts Paul Hoppe and Jacob Milicic, and regular guests Becky Allen, Jess Plummer, and Matthew Carroll.

Want to continue the discussion with us? Agree or disagree with what we talked about, or add your own thoughts? We’ve got options for you!

Let's talk Star Wars! Join the Ethical Panda Matthew Fox for an ongoing conversation about the wealth of Star Wars movies and TV shows, both the old and the new. We'll explore TV shows like The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars. We'll cover every movie, and we may even dive into the vast catalog of books, video games, and other media. Who needs a canon when you’ve got interesting stories?

During the strike we are focusing on books, fan content and other star wars stories not directly connected to struck media.
