The Mandalorian (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Yes, there is a Star Wars thread. But I promised johnnyboy I'd put this in it's own thread for those so devoted to the mouse they insist on waiting until Easter 2020. For pirates like me, how are you finding it?

I think it's excellent. Not overblown, and a decent fit for the Star Wars universe without treading familiar storylines. The restraint on the script is well judged, and exploring the Mandalorian religion is really interesting.

The Jawas were excellent value, and seeing Mando truck around in the sandcrawler without enough space was fun. Enjoyed everything about Nick Nolte too.

And one more thing, it's about the perfect balance of real effects and CGI. Really well judged.

I’m really enjoying it so far. There’s been a fair bit of hate online about a lack of action and female characters, but that’s probably people who could start an argument in an empty room.

Also really enjoying it. I would fight a star war to keep The Asset safe. Some incredible puppeteering with that character. 

Really like the pulpy feel, right down to the end credits and score. I also like that they haven’t felt the need to try and be deliberately gritty and dark, the tone is just right. 

I have spoken.

As has already been said, that last 10 minutes of episode 3 was phenomenal stuff. Genuine goosebumps. And the Asset toys are going to fly of the shelves. Especially if they are able to get them out by Christmas as suggested.

on a side note, the Jeff Goldblum show and Imagineering are both well worth a watch as well.

Prior to this weeks episode I was thinking that it would have been Boba Fett that rescued Mando and then left him to be raised by The Mandalorians after he had been orphaned.

After this weeks episode I'm even more inclined to think that way. 

What a brilliant show so far, I was concerned how Star Wars live action would translate into episodic series format but so far it really has been excellent.

It's Obvious gonna be Obi-Wan Kenobi who is gonna save Mando (to connect this serie to the upcoming Obi-Wan serie) and who placed him with the Mandalorians. In the Clone Wars series Obi-Wan has connections to Mandalore (both good and bad)!

 

 

But I could be totally wrong here of course...

Yeah those idiots are best ignored.

Probably just me but Mando reminds me a little of Karl Urban's portrayal of Judge Dredd.

The show is everything I want from a Star Wars tv show. I particularly love the bad guy of the week format bookended by a running narrarative. A cowboy moving from town to town making friends and enemies a long the way, it's basically anything my grandad would have watched when I was a kid.

I think as great as episode 3 was, episode 6 was my favourite so far. A great mix of serious action and comedy, a good story and some fun cameos from Bill Burr, Richard Ayoade and Clancy Brown. Hopefully going to squeeze episode 7 in tomorrow before we go and see The Rise Of Skywalker.

Episode 7 arrived early this week in case anyone missed it. It's a good'un.

Also contains a scene which ties into events of Rise of Skywalker

I had a sneaking feeling they would with them releasing this episode on Wednesday. Is it something integral to Rise Of Skywalker. Which do I need to watch first? Seeing ROS tonight.

Personally, I think it's more a nice easter egg then anything.
