Another May 4th has come and gone, and new Star Wars content is here: The Bad Batch, baby! First introduced last year in The Clone Wars Season 7, the Bad Batch is a squad of modified clones who don’t follow orders but god damn it, they get the job done, Chief, so either fire them or quit busting their asses!
