It’s good. Slow but good.


Spoiler: show
Horatio Sanz was testing me. Happy to see he is not going to part of the show going further.

Action scene at the end was cool

Baby Yoda

Looks like a movie

Looks like a western

As my main site review says, the western influences are all over it. I was cool with it.

Soo glad they are spending money on this cause it looks like a movie. small scale movie but a movie.

I'm really enjoying it so far as well. Finally a Star Wars property that I can really look forward to on a weekly basis. Also, Pedro Pascal was the perfect fit for this.

It’s ok so far. Hopefully the plot thickens tomorrow.

Well, we finally discovered the successor to John Williams. It's the composer of the best non-JW SW theme/soundtrack since Shadows of the Empire.

It was always you, Ludwig

After 2 episodes... it kinda sucks. I'll probably finish the season but I am not invested at all. Weird choice for first major series on the service.

I thought this weeks episode was much better than last weeks, especially in the pacing and directing department. I can understand how some wouldn't be into it, but man so far this has been the classic Star Wars throwback that I've been waiting for this entire time and I absolutely love it. Also, baby Yoda in the floating stroller is the cutest goddamn thing I have seen all year. Disney is going to make some serious plushy merchandise money off that thing.

I think the first two episodes were great, tbh.

This weeks episode was even better IMO. I loved that we finally got to see Pascaldalorian go full on Batman/John Wick on some Stormship Troopers and the stuff with the Mandos talking about their culture, code of honor and that big rescue at the end was just dopeness all around.

This show has been decent so far.

The last two episodes (ep. 5 & 6) were much better in terms of world building and action. The story has been decent but nothing special. In fact, it feels a bit lacking. I read an article yesterday that said this show is a $100 million show about nothing but visuals and I sort of agree.

It's a bigger budget live action version of Filoni's cartoons. That's okay. But this isn't the great Star Wars TV show I thought it'd be.

Show kinda sucks at this point. Started ok, but there's nothing going on. Far too episodic, not epic at all.

The last two episodes were great in my opinion.

It's very enjoyable to watch.

The last episode was way better than the previous two IMO. Really looking forward to this weeks as well.

Exciting finale, and Giancarlo makes a good overall villain, glad he survived

The whole scene where the stormtroopers couldn't shoot and the guy wanted to see Baby Yoda was hilarious

This show was fucking awesome and exactly what I've been wanting from Star Wars this whole time. Can't wait for Season 2 and see what direction they take this story in.

Post subject:  Re: The Mandalorian

that person walking up at end of Chapter 5.........PLEASE DON'T LET IT BE BOBA FETT! GOD NO! PLEASE NO!

less than 10 months to go until Season 2 drops :D
(assuming it drops same time as S1)

Post subject:  Re: The Mandalorian

Boba Fett will definitely show up at some point. I’m pretty sure that person was meant to be Moth Gideon though.

I kind of want Mando to bang Cara Dune, but the lesbians would probably get mad they made her straight. Then again you can't give her a real lesbian storyline cause then the anti-Rose type of people would complain Star Wars is now taken over by SJWs.

Post subject:  Re: The Mandalorian

Except the anti-Rose people are such a small portion of the audience.

I watched this over the last 2 weeks or so.

It's a good show, fits well within the SW universe, Baby Yoda is adorable and The Mandalorian is very cool character in itself too.

The show has a nice build-up, the first 3 episodes are totally ace, but there's a bit of a drop-off after that. It picks up again for the last 2 episodes for a good conclusion of the story so far.
There's something nice to be found in most episodes, like the the AT-ST in ep 4 and Bill Burr in ep 6, only ep 5 felt the least remarkable and for those middle episodes of the show it just felt it didn't serve the overall story well.
It felt to me, that they had a budget and a story for a 4 episode show, but it was dragged out over 8 episodes and that didn't serve in it's best interest.
The opening of ep 8 with Sudeikis as one of the storm troopers was quite fun and a highlight too. The show has a neat soundtrack as well.
