Screener Squad: Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 Review


In the aftermath of the Clone Wars, The Bad Batch follows Hunter, Cross Hair, Wrecker, Tech, and Echo, a unique squad of clone troopers with genetic mutations who resisted Order 66 and go on the run in the early days of the Galactic Empire. They are joined by Omega, a young female clone with unique qualities of her own found within her blood, which have made her extremely valuable to the Empire. The head of Project Necromancer, Dr. Hemlock, believes Omega’s blood could very well be the key to cloning the Emperor (though why anyone would do that strictly from a narrative perspective would be idiotic, right?) This final season sees the Batch separated, with Omega and Cross Hair captured on Mount Tantiss, and Hunter, Wrecker, and Echo searching far and wide for them, with cameos from some of the favorite faces of the Clone Wars era. Melina, Marco, and T.C. gather in the One Of Us Jedi Council Chambers to praise the series and the continued efforts of Dave Filoni to lay the retcon bricks to validate certain choices within the canon.

Melina Eames (Screener Squad)

Melina first discovered that she carried the nerd gene at the tender age of four following her exposure to a little film called A New Hope. In the twenty-some years that followed, Melina continued to grow into her geek identity through the discovery of Batman, Mst3k, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and The Mandalorian. But perhaps her most significant discovery came at the age of fourteen when a night of YouTube mining led her to the review site of Melina became a devoted follower whose fandom did not end with the site’s demise. By then, it had worked its dark magic and left her with a love and appreciation for film criticism that she has yet to shrug.
