The Mandolorian

Post by 2dr » Thu Jan 14, 2021 11:45 pm

I suppose you dudes are interested as am I in the Mandolorian series. Feel free to chat here about fav Grogu/Groggy moments, fan theories, cool ideas, and analyses regarding the Mandolorian.

I found so many lol moments and Easter eggs to the original series that I am going to watch both seasons again.

I still haven't gotten around to watching it.

I will eventually.

It’s well worth the watch however the episode structure is very repetitive and predictable. Mando wants something so the owner sent him on a mission as payment. But the finer details are exciting and the visuals are engaging.

I'm not into Star Wars, but my friends that are went crazy about how much they liked it. They were saying it restored their faith in the franchise after the last few movies they didn't like.

It's a great show, especially the second season. They've done a great job with the characters, writing and production.

The sequels got caught up in franchise tropes to sell tickets. They played it way too safe, whereas the Mandalorian does a great job at entertaining old and new fans. I'm watching it with my fiancee and she's enjoying it with a basic knowledge of Star Wars. Meanwhile, it's great for me to see all the extended universe stuff they've put in.

If the other planned Star Wars shows are half as good of the Mandalorian, this is definitely a golden era for the franchise.

Mandalorian was fun to watch, but I got REAL tired of the exact same formula for nearly every episode. Finds a person based on information, spends an entire episode helping that person, then is rewarded with another piece of information. It made the first season feel like only the first and last episodes mattered, and wasn’t much better with the second one.

I did really enjoy the western feel to them, though, with the shootouts and fast draws. And the very concept of baby Yoda was probably the best marketing the show could have ever had. I bet it would have gotten half the viewership if it wasn’t for that stupidly cute puppet.

I hadn't thought of that, but you're right. I hope season 3 will branch out a little more.

... Especially since Grogu went with Luke to train. They have enough characters to really get wild now, so I hope they go outside the box.

BABY YODA MOTHAFUCKA

I wanna know more about Sasha Banks' character. Why was she watching them while in a black sith robe? Is she connected to Grand Admiral Thrawn?

If the last episode didn't choke you up, you probably don't have a soul.

She is definitely up to something. Weather and it has anything to do with the grand Admiral Thrawn I can’t say, but I’m definitely looking forward to season three.
