The Comic Years Podcast: The Bad Batch Episode One Spoiler Review
After a long wait, we finally have new Star Wars content! Released on May the 4th, a brand new animated Star Wars premiered on Disney Plus. The Bad Batch looks like it’s a direct continuation of the events of The Clone Wars animated series. But told from the perspective of a select few in the Star Wars franchise. Seemingly unimportant, they are characters who may end up having greater significance in the universe, than previously thought of. With the release of the series premiere of The Bad Batch, the ComicYears.com team of Joshua M. Patton and I, sit down to discuss the episode and how it sets the tone for the new series. So check out this episode of the Comic Years Podcast, for The Bad Batch episode 1 spoiler podcast.
The Bad Batch Episode 1 Spoiler Podcast Discuss The Larger Star Wars Universe

The new podcast episode begins with ComicYears.com Managing Editor Joshua M. Patton breaking down why The Clone Wars was so great. The series was highly important to further enhance and establish the overall Star Wars universe. Especially given that it had time to develop the characters and stories, in a way that the movies could not. Joshua also blows my mind with a special connection in The Bad Batch episode 1 spoiler podcast, that I did not see coming. And then he does it again later on! We then discuss in what areas the show works, and others where it doesn’t.
It’s Not All Consensus For The First Episode
Unlike Joshua, I wasn’t entirely sold on The Bad Batch episode 1. I enjoyed the episode for what it was, but difficult to invest in it without knowing where it’s going. I would prefer if the show has deeper connections, possibly tying into the larger Star Wars franchise. Actually, I would love it if characters from The Bad Batch made their way into the live-action Disney Plus series, or even more movies in the future. Joshua disagrees, but while he doesn’t need that to enjoy The Bad Batch, he agrees it would be awesome if they did.
