So far this is about the only good thing that's come out of the Disney owned era of the franchise.
It really feels like a video game when watching it though. All his actions feel like something out of a RPG. He even had to do some side quests, along with an escort quest.
Then in true RPG power gaming fashion, rather than making the "good karma" decision immediately, he instead collects the reward from the quest giver, goes and upgrades his armor fully, THEN goes back to the quest giver and takes back the bounty, completely turning that faction against him and killing them all for maximum experience points.
Anyway, it's a pretty cool show. (So far)
Baby Yoda is the very essence of adorablenes.
BABY YODA FOR LIFE! SO CUTE!!!!!
I don't like how he's still all ridgely and has scraggly gray hair and stuff. I thought Real Yoda just looked like that because he was old.
It’s the eyes
I caught it after revisiting 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly with me pepaw. This was purely coincidental. You can tell they're trying to make MC some kind of space Clint Eastwood with that strained, manly cowboy voice. Oh, and the soundtrack. I'm a real sucker for spaghetti westerns. I dont remember them copying that Sergio Leone shot composition, though.
I like baby yoda even though I know it's just a marketing tactic
It already is getting a second season.
Hopefully it just doesn't start sucking badly.
It definitely is a western- Even down to the lasers!
I was going to say that I thought it was kind of weird how mandalorians never take off their helmets, because other mandalorians have totally removed their helmets before, Like Jango and Kid Boba Fett.
Then I looked it up and apparently the canon was changed to say Jango and Boba aren't even mandalorian, because Jango allegedly just stole some armor from them. At that point, I found it ironic that one of their most popular characters and arguably the one that allowed the TV show to exist isn't even mandalorian.
And then I found other mandalorians who took off their helmets and was completely justified. Then again, this was during the Clone Wars and the original trilogy, so I dunno it might be a single clan thing or a new mandalorian thing rather than a complete retcon, but whatever, the show is pretty cool.
That's some really hard ret con. They did the same thing with the back story during the SOLO movie. They'll keep doing that. Most of Disney is fanfiction or Mickey Mouse. They still come out with good stories.
@DerPrussen answer for your reckless words, fool
Are you telling me that the Solo movie depicted a young Imperial Officer/Pilot who betrayed the Empire and released Chewbacca from slavery gaining a Wookie life debt and lifetime companion? Cause that was the old story.
In season 2, seems like it WAS a single clan thing.
Good job, past me. Pretty smart.
Still love the show, but episode 4 was kind of a downer for me
Seven Samurai is one of my favorite movies of all time. This episode was clearly a wink to that. However, Seven Samurai was a long movie as in like 4 hours I'm pretty sure. If you havne't seen Samurai Seven, which is the anime version, even longer with episodes covering the story. To have a mission to save a village from bandits play out in a 37 or 40 minute time frame felt super rushed. It was still cool, I liked it, I would have just done it in maybe 2-3 episodes minimum. But then again, I'm not a director or writer making bank so I know nothing.
Well I mean there were only 2 "samurai" in this scenario anyway.
But 7 samurai was also the first thing that came to mind when the plot got going.
Surprised to see comedian Bill Burr playing a merc in the latest episode. Wasn't sure if it was actually him at first. Also glad to see Clancy Brown still playing brutish villains as usual.
One thing I really like about this show is there really isn't some major arc going on. (Other than keeping Baby Yoda safe I suppose) The Mandalorian is this faceless protagonist that just keeps wandering from planet to space station taking random missions for profit and killing a bunch of people.
It really is like watching a video game.
I don't really understand why people keep betraying him.
I mean, if everyone who's betrayed him so far DIDN'T, they'd all be in a better position than they were before, instead of being like "haha if we betray the mandalorian we'll be in an even BETTER position".
Speaking of no major arc, there was a review out wheee a guy was bashing it as cashing in on action figures and nostalgia. Similar to how Ready Player One movie was bashed as just a fan service for people to find all the little Easter eggs and references. I personally really enjoy the show and there is a major arc it’s just not in everyone’s face yet. Kinda cool how the episodes each feel a little dofferent and like he’s working a new job each time.
I like the episodic style with the overarching plot hanging over head
And yeah, Im glad theyre having fun with it instead of making everything emo and depressing as everyone seems to like, constantly
The thing about Star Wars, is like when they were making the originals George Lucas openly admitted that he wanted to use it to sell toys in addition to making a pretty cool film
Its just the nature of star wars to cash in on OMG CUTE BABBY YODA
The Mandalorian is kick ass and anyone who hates it is a faggot from what Ive seen so far.
The past few episodes I've enjoyed and thought to myself "That's a man that knows how to walk off getting shot in the chest."
Well time to cancel Disney plus until the next season of The Mandolorian I guess.
Last episode was still cool even if the Moff was holding the idiot ball by stalling as much as he did.
Funniest part is when the troopers punched baby Yoda.
Same. Since the next season won't come out till fall 2020 I relaly don't need those months of subcription charges. Feel like Disney Plus kinda screwed themselves here. I mean, maybe I haven't looked through everything avaiable enough, but there should be more original series like Mandalorian, or offering access to Marvel movies sooner or something. The other night I tried to pull up the second Ant Man with Wasp because I hadn't seen it yet. and it was on the app. And what do you know. Not avaialble.
So far the second season has been just as good as the first even though it's only two episodes in so far.
Also going to just say this, if you're getting bent out shape about Baby Yoda eating some frog lady's eggs, you're a massive faggot.
These people whining about it were probably the same ones that wouldn't shut the fuck up about how cute the green bugger was.
Hey, he also rips out a spider alien baby right out of its shell and eats it too, don't hear anyone get upset about that one though. Why? Oh, because they aren't as "cute" as the frog lady who keeps going on about how the eggs are the last of her line.
Last of her line. Didn't say last of her fucking species, so he's not even the "genocidal monster" people are going on about.
I just hope all the faggots bitching about it don't fuck up the show causing the writers to back peddle or some other stupid shit.
Is it really cannibalism if they're different species?
It isn't, but no one ever taught me the word that means I eat other Sapients that aren't of my species.
Most recent episode was pretty solid. The train heist was well done, I liked how the villain dude was an actual true believer and not just a bumbling retard like his subordinates.
They also resolved the contradiction of why Mando doesn't take his helmet off when they do in the cartoons, in a way that kinda makes sense. Coins will be pleased to learn that his people are like the Salafists of the mandalorian world
Caught up on recent episodes 3 and 4 for this season, liked them both. I don't think I've seen a bad episode yet.
In other news of faggotry trying to ruin everything that's good:
I guess Anita is desperately trying to stay relevant by bitching about the female Mandalorians having a little extra armor padding in the chest area. For fuck's sake they aren't wearing chainmail binkinis, the armor is still covering them like warriors and not even really drawing attention to their boobs. Hell, the camera action angles are going so quick, you wouldn't be focusing on them anyway.
It's just retarded.
And as usual not to be outdone, the tranny folk (and their cuck allies) have once again bitched about their fee fees, trying to get people canceled.
The main action chick who is a less traditional figured gal got calls for getting fired due to some shit she said on twitter which was supposed to be "transphobic."
What the fuck? Shouldn't we be supporting more of the ladies that have the less "Hollywood" figure (that apparently creates body image problems in little girls) in these sorts of roles instead of a tiny percentage of the mentally ill population trying to normalize their mental illness? There's more chubby people than trannies after all.
Also Rosario Dawson who is supposed to portray a Jedi character in the show also is getting shit by the trannies for percieved "transphobia."
At this point it just seems like the tranny folk won't be happy until they replace all the real women.
^That's all it took to trigger them.
I don't know if I should laugh or take an arsenic tablet.
Finally saw the season finale and once again I'd say Season 2 had no bad episodes same as season 1. So far batting 1000 with this show.
If they ended the show right now (like there's rumors going around about it) it wouldn't be a bad thing.
Would it be blasphemy to say that I prefer The Mandalorian to the original Star Wars films? ^_^
Not at this point.
