Attack of the Tea Party? That seems to be the premise in the Season 4 premiere of The Clone Wars, as Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his diplomatic aide/lover Padme Amidala make their way to a planet where an inexperienced new leader finds his rule challenged by an insurgent political group that distrusts his leadership and favors aligning with Count Dooku and the rest of the Separatists.
Oh, you thought the Clone Wars were over? Just because Anakin Skywalker killed off a bunch of alien dudes at the end of Revenge of the Sith, and Obi-Wan Kenobi cut off his legs? It's not over! It's just getting started, man! Even though you know how it all ends, because you saw the last movie where the clone troopers shot all the Jedi, there's all this stuff that happened between the fifth and sixth -- I mean, second and third Star Wars movies that you didn't even see! Luckily, George Lucas has created a cartoon series (and toy line, and video game) inspired by old movie serials to tell the tale, and practically every other episode spotlights a different alien race, which is like pornography for Star Wars fans. Some of the aliens are new, but some are old favorites, like tonight's guest stars... the Twi'lek of Ryloth!
