I'm not going to say specially who, and not necessarily in this thread at all, but it would seem like shows that are more focused on a younger audience gets on other people's nerves as if they will be looked at as immature people if they like it, as if they won't be view as grownups if they admit they like a show like this one. So they nit pick at it to try to prove their maturity. I know that is something that would happen if you're a teenager when everybody is going through so many changes and most everybody is insecure about themselves, but we're you become grownups, you have to remember that most anybody who is secure in themselves won't care anymore.
I can actually go and watch a kids movie with some of my younger nieces and nephews and totally enjoy it. But that's me. Mostly because there is an innocence about it that you don't get in an adult show that is actually refreshing.
Just in case any light is on me, let me say that me and friends pop onto Cartoon Network quite a bit. I don't hate nor am ashamed of its contents; I'm just not really in the age group it was aimed at. I used to watch Cartoon Network when Toonami was still around and had a ton of fun, and was glued to Nick as well. I'm not a fan of their modern day incarnations, but hey; what can you do.
As far as nitpicking goes:
I could nitpick the hell out of the series, but I do understand that it is aimed at kids. Regardless, however, as a Star Wars fan I think I'm justified in asking why Anakin has a Padawan in a story context. He, of course, has one to make someone the younger audience can relate to but as far a continuity goes it makes no sense. Her age also conflicts, and this all could really be settled if she was a few years older and was, well, not Anakin's Padawan.
