Man, I hate spiders. And Seperatist bad guy Trench was spider-like enough that I threw a pretzel at my screen. At least I didn't go for my Spider-Whacking Stick. He made for a great villain, though, so it's almost disappointing that he didn't survive. (Almost. Brrr. I hate spiders.)
Anakin is way cooler in this series than in the movies.
It was interesting to see a cloaking device handled in Star Wars. It was mentioned in The Empire Strikes Back that they do exist in the Star Wars universe, but we've never actually seen one before.
And as always, lots of great spaceship battles.
