I'm watching Clone Wars on Netflix now, in the chronological order that LucasFilm posted. I'm about 40 episodes in. I mostly like it, except for the campy episodes--typically involving C3PO or JarJar--that remind me of the prequels. I'm expectant for Rebels and plan on reading the new book, "A New Dawn", that will set up a couple of the main characters of the new show.
As an old fan of the EU, I was disheartened to see the effective wiping of all the books, but I'm willing to give the new books--as official canon--a chance.
Since I have quite a bit to catch up on, I won't be watching live for a while, it seems, but I'm looking forward to it. Until then, they'll stay stored on my DVR.
