Ok, this is hard to say in public, and I know I may be ostracized but I am just going to say it....
I like the Cartoon clone wars series (and the prequel trilogy) better than the original trilogy.
Ok, breathe, and hear me out. I recently got the Blu Ray Star Wars set and have begun introducing my children to it. Rewatched all of the movies. I made the decision to start with Episode IV and work them through chronologically the way I experienced it. I skip through really dark scenes (plenty of time for that later in life).
I noticed something though. I was becoming really annoyed watching the original trilogy. It's not the special effects, I am fine with that, it is just the writing in general. It's hokey. Some elements are still classic. The whole Hoth battle scene is still awesome, but later on when Luke meets Yoda I was growing disgusted. Sure he is older and at the end of his life, but he also pretty much acts like a imbecile with moments of clarity. Nothing like the Yoda from the Prequel trilogy or the clone wars (who is not only wise, but funny and a major bad ass). Also, generally, Luke is annoying as hell. I have never seen a whinier hero, seriously. If a younger Anakin had met him I could totally see him rolling his eyes in disgust. Suck it up!
I don't know, maybe it is just that due to technology and modern animation they have been able to do so much with the Clone Wars series, but I also think that generally the writing is better, and the storylines make more sense.
I am also really annoyed that they did not start this between Episode 2 and 3. I remember very specifically when Episode 3 came out and Obi Wan takes down Grievous as thinking, this is a momentous occasion but I have no idea why (I never read any of the novels, guess that is obvious). If I had watched the clone wars (and at least one season had been made between 2 and 3 with grievous story lines) I would have been much more jacked, and when I rewatched the movie it was totally awesome to see him finally fall.
Honestly, after this experience, I would not be opposed to a follow up trilogy, or even a remake. A cartoon remake would be epic (all the actors are still alive to do voice overs).
Just my .02.
