The mandalorian [Spoilers]

It felt at times like a Western, which was cool, giving off a Fist Full of Dollars vibe. The settings were nicely done and OMG baby Yoda! or at least a baby of his species. IIRC, Lucas didn't want to revel his species when he was in control. So,either Yoda is reincarnated or we'll finally figure out what his species really is.

I'm not finished yet. I just wanted to complain that they're releasing one episode at a time.

I thought it was a decent episode. The highlight was easily IG-88 as voiced by Taika Waititi laying waste to the marauders. That was badass.

the closed captioning say IG-11 not 88, I wonder if he's dead or if he will be back for vengeance or something.

Also did you notice what alien was getting roasted? (haha)

There was another of Yoda species back in Phantom Menace, so I wouldn’t hold your breath on them revealing anything, even if they show more of them...

On another note, damn I hate disney for not giving us the service yet here in europe. I want to see this series!

Indeed, it is IG-11. Filoni mentioned in an interview that they didn't want to step on the stories from Legends. That said, IG-88 has done a few things even in canon, including existing sometime after The Battle of Takodana in ABY 34. He exists at at about 9 ABY, which is when the show takes place, though nothing in canon is known of it between 4 ABY (when he tried to infiltrate the Death Star II) and after ABY 34. Leaves a lot of room for existing legends material to take place alongside new-canon stories.

There was another of Yoda species back in episode 1, so I wouldn’t hold your breath on then revealing anything, even if they show more of them...
This is a very young Yoda-species, though. It could be the first time the species is named in the fiction (that's never happened, even in legends). I don't expect it to be incredibly big news but the young creature means that there had to have at least been its parents (or maybe just parent, we've got no clue how they reproduce). There's a lot we could learn about the species, even if small things.

I don't know if I'd call him a bad guy yet. I think that remains to be seen, really.
Hence the we'll see.

I'm having issues with spoiler tags for some reason, so I'll try to say this w/o giving away too much. The major battle scene had a large body count. None of those people were his bounty.

Oh, I thought it was IG-88. Oh well, it might as well be, except he got his head blown off! And yeah, I did notice that critter getting roasted. The episode had lots of Empire and Jedi callbacks.

If I were a betting man, I'd bet it's to prevent all those people who subscribe for just a month to binge watch the entire season, then cancel after that 1st month.


I thought it was a decent show, but I don't think the humor fit well for a mandalorian. They aren't exactly known for their comedic prowess.

I did not care for the humor from the blue guy in the opening sequence, that was very weak. I didn't realize until later that was Horatio Sanz from SNL.

I just watched the first episode, and it was okay-ish. The costumes and practical effects are fantastic. But plot-wise it hasn't hooked me yet, and it fails to really build a mood. But I will continue to watch it and see if it gets better. It's not bad, but it's not great either.

Episode 2 is also out now, looks like they'll be coming out on Fridays going forward.

The show is also a lot shorter than I thought it would be, eight 30ish minute episodes. But I liked the first episode pretty much. I don't know why the Mandalorian didn't park his ship like one or two miles away from the town and hoof it in (like IG-11 did). Instead we had to get that whole beast training montage.
