If you can't figure out which, you haven't been paying attention. It has flaws, it's not perfect, but it is, overall, very satisfying, with some really fine moments. And for the first time since, maybe, Return of the Jedi (or maybe even Empire Strikes Back) there is humor that doesn't rely on cute funny characters. For my money, Ewan McGregor, Ian McDiarmid and Yoda take the show, poor Natalie Portman has nothing much to do except look exquisitely gorgeous, and Hayden Christenson holds up far better than in Attack of the Clones.
