I also like the episodes with Darth Maul and the Witches, the Death Watch (and their special swords),etc.You can skip most of it, go watch episodes 218-219 I believe. Mainly 219 it's the season finale. It's pretty crazy *cough cough Vader cough Asoka cough*
Frankly while I still enjoy maybe 1 in 3 episodes I will openly admit its so-so, however really recommend watching the last couple episodes of season 2. Shit gets dark.
And yeah really was great what they did with the story arc regarding Darth Vader and Asoka.
1st bunch of episodes start slow but more to get to grips with the characters and feel on how the galaxy is after the Emperor takes control of the galaxy.
