Only one scene into the last episode and all I can do is roll my eyes that they had a buddy cop comic relief moment with the two guys who just killed one of the heroes.

Lmao that scene was hilarious. And technically we don't know who actually killed him. Could have been the droid.

I thought it was refreshing hearing a couple of storm troopers just shoot the shit like normal folk.

My favorite part was when baby Yoda tried to choke that woman to death because she was beating his friend at arm wrestling. Lol, so cute!

I mean they teased that in the finale, but I seriously doubt it happens. Í figure they'd keep that for a Yoda movie.

I'm more curious as to where the rest of Yoda's race are. Are they all force sensitive? Aside from this little guy and original Yoda, there is no mention of this race at all in Star Wars canon. Are they almost extinct or do they prefer to just stay on their home planet? Everyone that sees the little guy doesn't even recognize the race, so they can't be too common.

I finally started watching this. Just got through the episode with the krill farmers.

This show is bad. I had some fun picking out who the cameo actors were, but I was immediately bored.



spoliers probably





NOTHING about this show draws me in. The mandalorian walks like he's got a stick up his ass. He goes back and forth between being an elite fighter and being a complete dunce(really, you're just gonna walk in a dark cave and use a flashlight when you have all sorts of high tech imaging shit?)

he was being chased in his ship, hits the air brakes, uses his ship to crunch the ship chasing him, then shoots it. Afterward, all systems are failing and he has a fuel leak. He gets up, flips a switch and everything works perfectly for him to go see amy sedaris?

there was no feeling between some strong jawed widow and mando, but at the end of the episode we're supposed to think for a second that he'd sacrifice his religion and take off his helmet for her?

this show is just like the recent movies. pretty to look at with no effort put into being original or engaging or entertaining. and i wish it werent the case

If that's all you got out of that episode, then you should probably just stop watching.

There seems to be a group of SW *fans* who can only complain about everything. Similar to GoT *fans*. You people are the worst. Just try to enjoy it for the entertainment that it is. And if you think it is so awful, turn it off and go for a walk.

Wow what a waste of time. The show began and just went. It didn't progress and didn't properly end. Just went and now its over midplot. and all along he just hated droids because of the droid war? I thought there would be a story of a droid betraying him personally with hidden programming or something. Nope, he just doesn't understand computers and is in love with the one because it helped him?

My favorite parts were baby yoda choking the lady and the storm troopers showing off their bad aim. Those scenes were excellent comedy and made me realize I would have loved this as a comedy series.

I have spoken.

Its logic from our world which we can understand but is unacceptable for anyone with experience living in the star wars world. You have to understand that droids have been a basic part of everyday life throughout this galaxy and carry out of ton of functions other than killing.

The droid army did what they were programmed to do but in the dialogue mando suggests that they don't always do what they are supposed to do. At the time, I thought it was a foreshadowing device for a droid to turn in one of his flashbacks later on in the show but it never happened.

He doesn't want food from droids, and doesn't even want to trust a taxi droid. The best analogy I can think of would be like seeing your town overrun by tanks, and never trusting any motor vehicle ever again.

Yeah, discrimination against droids makes no sense! It's not like there was evidence of this from the very first Star Wars movie or anything!

People of different race have been living together on this planet for eons, yet there are still plenty of racist white people that don't trust any black people. Him being part of a universe where droids are part of every day life wouldn't affect it any differently.

That might fly if they stuck with it but they didn't. I could understand if mandalorians just don't use droids or it goes against their code (this is the way) but the writers let it go suddenly. He didn't just realize the droid was useful, he was ready to face death instead of sacrificing the droid. That is extreme droid love right there.

He fell in love with droids moment a droid helped him. As if he's realizing for the first time that droids could actually save lives instead of just taking them. He's not some newb. Its implausible that he could have completed so many missions as a bounty hunter all over the galaxy without realizing that droids could be helpful. This was written as if the main character was plucked off of present day earth at the start of the season and informed that droids destroyed his civilization and is just now learning how droids work. That would be understandable for a character with .a sheltered single-planet backstory like Rey or Luke but not a notorisous bounty hunter.

I am very fun to be around. I don't want the Mandolorian to be bad, but it is. It has its moments, but overall, it's just forced (no pun intended). Would've worked way better as a buddy cop movie with baby yoda.

I am not a Star Wars fan that wants to complain about everything. When you come out with a new trilogy and the first thing i see is a planet-gun, I'm going to have a problem. Be creative. Mandalorian is a great place to be creative, but instead, someone came up with one idea for arc, then inserted chores for the character to do in order to fill out episodes.

But they're* just gonna keep pumping out mediocre until fans demand more of them.

I mean, it’s the platforms flagship show. Apparently season 1 budget was 100 million, and a lot of that went into startup costs. I don’t know what the S2 budget is, but I doubt it’s any less, and they can now put more of it on screen

S2E2 Spoilers below




Although I have enjoyed both of the S2 episodes, I'm really hoping it just doesn't fall into a "Mandalorian gets a new companion each week with their own unique skills that all come back to help him at the end" trope. The frog woman wasn't too helpful, but her husband might be if we meet him in the future.

That being said, seeing the X-wing chase was awesome and was pleased to see the brief return of Richard Ayoade. Question: What was it that the X-wing scanners picked up that started the chase? Was it the robot bounty hunter guy from S1? Also, check out the inspiration for the ice spiders that came from Empire Strikes Back concept art:
