Thoughts?

I've never been a big starwars nerd or fan but I did watch all of the movies and animated ones except for the new ones and fairly knowledgeable about the franchise and recently reading about the EU, and I still think the prequels were fine even better than the original. played the hell out of jedi academy even started a multiplayer fad in my school.

I wasn't very into the jedi , didn't like the idea of laser sword magicians, i liked the prequels better cause they featured some world building and other non-jedi characters and races. the new trilogy i only watched the 1st one and rogue one. didn't like the 1st one cause it's all focusing on the jedis again , plus it's just a rehash of the originals with little change here and there.

mandalorian is perfect for me , we can see what the star wars universe is not focused on the jedi or sith with their very cultish and mysticism ways and more of a normal everyday person trying to get by.  and i think this is the 1st time i saw starwars currencies. and they've got the disintegration rifle from the games.

still not sure whether to buy disney+ if when it's available in my country, i'd settle for a physical copy of the show and i'm guessing it'll have bonus features. it's seems like a show that you'd rewatch from time to time and it's short same as your average anime. so that's good.

I'm actually thinking of passing it just like Maleficent Mistress Of Evil and Terminator Dark Fate which I've categorized as needless sequels. I did watch Young Han Solo though but that's because I was conveniently dragged along by someone but I think it was good. If its that good I might just watch it.

So far I have not been a fan of any of the post-Disney star wars material...

Until the Mandalorean.

Sure it's just Lone wolf and Cub  ....in....Spaaaaaace! But that doesn't mean its not awesome. In fact all the best Star Wars stuff is just ripped off of a Samurai flicks.

Hopefully Disney smartens the fuck up and gives Favrou and Filoni more control over the Star Wars brand going forward. More Space westerns and less SuBvErTiNg ExPeCtAtIoNs please and thanks.

I thought it was perfect in setting the tone for how Mando interacts with people who want to help him live a normal life: he rejects it. It's a nice, soft episode that's more slow-paced and is alot more about Mando's morals.

we already got that in episode 2. which portrayed way better.

still a cliche episode with generic badguyz harassing a prawn farmers it's basically an anime filler episode ... , not to mention gina's character is meh. they even had a training montage like seriously why would a tall basically a moving sentry tower would move close to it's target? it's already had a vantage point , would've been better if they trapped it inside the forest.

i don't mind less action to be honest this episode would've been alot better without the action scenes.  or a twist like the farmers are actually the bandits and they just want their walker back or something it feels like a generic show.

I like it,
I know disney trapped me by cute baby yoda, and cool armors worn by the Mandalorians, can't wait to see clearer how the others look I bet they would cashing on toys like ironman armors,
apart form that I like this series better than the new main arc.

Season Finale Came out.

Pretty solid overall, some fantastic visual direction on some scenes helped alot, especially towards the end, which was pretty haunting to see.

I got sold over it having gina carano, though what got me interested is someone mentioning that part of the appeal of the original star wars trilogy were the western influences and that the malandrorian has those influences as well.

I did not expect to see that black (spoiler) at the end, I figured it would be stuck in cartoon world forever. I guess they're going to make more references to either Rebels or Clone Wars in S2 ? There's so much work with all the Mandalore background that's gonna need to be added now, the exact sort of things they wouldn't even try in the movies because there's no way they'll waste time explaining everything that happened in the cartoons.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I love how this season is expanding more and more the environment and the relationships of Din Djarin's character, getting closer to the best of the SW universe. Without leaving aside that beautiful western feeling.

When they namedrop so many extended universe non-movies characters, I wonder if it's because this is setting up future seasons of the Mandalorian, or if it's setting up future rumored series, like those for Boba, Kenobi, or Asohka. Bo looking for the Dark Saber (we know Gideon does have a darksaber vs lightsaber battle this season), Thrawn's return from the outer rim probably with Ezra not too far, the setting up of clones and most likely whatshisface the fakeout big villain from the sequel trilogy, etc. It's good, but which series will have them in live action ?

I haven't quite enjoyed this season as much as the first, outside of the first episode, because of a larger interest in tying itself to Clone Wars

And let's say when they hit the credits on this one and the writer's name came up, then the director's name came up and they were the same name I was thoroughly unsurprised
Too deep in yearning we need
something to hold, and something to keep
Innocent eyes could not realize
the meaning of "destiny"
But someday I promise that
you’ll start to notice what’s there on your shoulders someday -
Wings that are strong,
they will guide you along to the future that holds your fate!
Let me tell you a cruel angel’s thesis -
Flying high from the window, finding egress
There is something betraying all my memories,
burning pathos, emotion overwhelming!
