Not a lot to sink your teeth into on this one. Ashoka having to learn to put the needs of the many ahead of the few, even the few you're attached to despite your Jedi training, is a solid enough theme, but the episode doesn't do a whole lot to flesh it out. It felt like they had too much story to fit into 22 minutes, with a lot of things moving way too fast. The opening firefight was cool, but empty calories, and the band of pacifist Irish meerkats delivering hamfisted platitudes about peace didn't do much for me. It's nice to see the universe apart from the war given life, but two characters having a debate about war and peace is pretty cornball. But hey, bird creature cattle roping!
