Title: The Mandalorian
Post by: wesfau2 on November 15, 2019, 10:25:20 AM
Anyone watching?

I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode (though, admittedly, I wanted to...) even though I'm limited in my "canon" knowledge to the theatrical releases (no books, comics, cartoon series, etc.)

I liked Pascal in Narcos and the second Kingsmen movie so I feel like the title character is in good hands.  I was under the impression that this was a Boba Fett backstory (but then realized that they covered him in The Clone Wars) and to find out that there is an entire "tribe" of these badasses is exciting.

Tons of easter eggs to be found and I'm sure I only got 1/2342th of them...or about 5% by Chad-math.  Favreau even threw in a nod to his big break through work, Swingers.  See if you can spot it.

Also...the end scene was a bit of a shock.  In a GREAT way.

Takes place about 5 years after Return of the Jedi.

And I fudgeing loved it.  Easily the best thing Disney/Star Wars has done.

This is a disney PPV right?

I saw the previews but refuse to pay because I am an old cheapskate.

In few years it will be on Netflix or Prime, etc.. and it will be just as new to me.

Sooo. This is not Boba Fett? I was wondering how he got out of the belly of the beast.

Ummm. Don’t expect this to ever be on Netflix or prime hoss. That’s sort of the whole purpose behind Disney +. And if you have Verizon you get it free for a year.

Watched both episodes this weekend. Fantastic. Love the spaghetti-western motif the show has so far. Looking forward to more.

The shootout in episode 1 looked like one of the RDR2 missions, except with lasers.
