Promising start.

Kinda tripped me up that Omega's

Spoiler

 

a female.

Hopefully, she's not some oddball clone of Palpatine or anything and is just aberrant clone of Jango.  Really hope Tech did his homework on that.

Makes sense that one of them would've went Order 66.  But wonder if the plan is to stretch out the deal with Crosshair for the whole season or resolve it sooner rather than later.

 

Still not feeling Echo's armor, and he still seems redundant with Tech there.  Is he supposed to be the team's defacto droid?

Also, I was hoping the credits would list Dee Bradley Baker's name multiple times instead of the one credit line he got! :lol:

Lastly, I guess Anakin was successful in getting that Padme noseart removed on the Batch's ship. :sad:

EDIT: 

Spoiler

Liked how they did the Palpatine rescue scene from ROTS in the Clone Wars animation style.  Pretty cool quick little nod there.

Really enjoyed it, even liked Omega.  The trailers had really turned me off to the character.  I think it will be interesting to see how Filoni handles her,

Spoiler

it seems that she's being set up to be some kind of observational savant, IE she can do anything she sees first. 

If Kathleen Kennedy were behind this I'd be very skeptical, however Filoni has proven that he can make the obnoxious teen character into something interesting and beloved with both Asoka and Ezra, so I'll reserve judgement for now.  Besides my guess may be completely off.

It wasn't bad. Wasn't to thrilled they re-wrote a particular character's back story, but I'll survive that, not the first time this has happened in the SW Universe.

I wonder if Baker is getting a bonus for all those voice overs lol

Watched it last night, wonder who the kid is a clone of, or grows up to be.  Waiting to be mind-blown.

I'm happy that the old voice actors are back too, they deserve more work.

You mean Caleb? :huh:

There was a comic about him during and after order 66. The Bad Batch episode retcons all of it. It proves a point I've been making ever since Disney threw out the EU and declared everything would be canon. Between the movies, the TV shows, the comics, the novels, etc there's just too many people involved, too many moving parts for it all to work as a single canon narrative. Things are going to get retconned, and the movies and TV shows are always going to take priority over the books and comics when it comes to canon because those reach the most people.

I'm not particularly bothered by the retcon itself, but as a comic artist I am always a bit miffed when comics are treated as throw-away material.

Second episode is already out.

Serviceable ep.

Spoiler

Figured it would be Cut they meet up with.

As a parent, I liked the comment how he’d sometimes rather fight battle droids than deal with the kids.

But at least, he left the Rex nugget for the next side quest.

Don't read the books....what were the differences?

Here's a video that talks about some of the changes.

I can understand why some folks would be miffed or pissed about this retcon.

Instead of happening during a nice quiet moment of rest, Kanan’s Order 66 moment now happens in the middle of a battle (technically, a lull in one, but still).

Just like the majority of the Order 66 scenes we’ve seen already.

I get why they did it here in Bad Batch, but it’s still kind of a bummer.

I’m still attached to a lot of the events that happened at the end of Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, but it’s kinda hard to tie all that with what’s been shown in Filoni’s last eps of Clone Wars.

Wasn’t the first, certainly won’t be the last, and definitely not the worst retcon we’ve seen in Star Wars.
