Aha I actually thought the same thing when he was pinned down in the wagon in the town square. Now I’m not gonna be able to unthink cutscene -> gameplay -> cutscene -> gameplay when I watch it. Oh well.

^^ the armor forging is a cutscene for sure

The show so far has main quest, side quests, cut scenes, and people who you go back to who tell you to go to a new area to explore to expand your map. I feel like this was definitely a video game at one point.

It's a truly great series, and I think anyone who is at all interested in comics as a storytelling medium should read it. At 28 volumes, though, that could be a lot of money and even more time. Getting the first 15 on Unlimited is awesome.

I have a Verizon unlimited plan, so I get a free year of Disney+.

Also I am still mourning the loss of Brian Posehn in the first episode.

If the baby yoda is supposed to be 50 years old, why does it still act like it has the intellect of a 5 year old? I get they live longer but shouldn’t it learn as fast still?

regular Yoda is like 900 years old and can't even organize subjects and predicates logically in sentences, so it's no surprise the baby can't even speak at age 50

To clarify, I never thought it was the SAME ice cream maker.... just that we had no clue what it was supposed to be when the guy was carrying it in the originals, but now we know what they are used for and it ties in nicely.

The "speeders" on that fishing planet are the slowest ever

Also, what do the trackers track? His DNA or something? ie not something they could remove?

yes, lol at the speeders. i thought the same thing.

also i figured the the little fobs tracked DNA, but that also has issues. like it wouldn't differentiate between identical twins or clones. so if your twin brother decided to become a notorious criminal, you are absolutely fucked.

I realize this is fantasy and all, but I’m having a hard time getting around people being tracked across the galaxy with only a blinking red dot. Sure when it’s right next to the bounty it starts beeping faster, but that greedo looking fool somehow tracked little man to a different planet. Did I miss something about that?

If you don't like plot holes, star wars is not the fictional universe for you.

In theory, this is plausible. When dogs track somebody, they are not following footprints but going off of residual DNA left in the air and your surroundings. Getting on a bike won't help you, but getting in a car or a bus would.

You could generalize it down to that. Obviously, they are tracking the residual scent off of particles that you would leave on the run, like parts of your skin from touching a fence, or maybe a particular component of your sweat trail that is left in the air behind you, or hair follicles. Things that are very small but do have DNA in them. It is indeed the "smell" that they are following, but they are following particles that would have your DNA in it.

There is no DNA in sweat

it is still a biological sample that, when somebody is on the run, is more than likely gonna have some sort of biology in it, whether that be blood or urine, or whatever.

Again, dogs of course aren't trained to track DNA, because they track scent. However, the accuracy and detection limits of trained dogs are extraordinary. They are literally picking up on biological material from the air or surroundings that you shed off on the run.

Comparing a bloodhound to a DNA tracker is not that much of a stretch, in my opinion, because the items that a dog tracks will more than likely have DNA in it that a DNA tracker would pick up on.

They have a limited range. They have to use traditional methods to know approximately where a target is then the homing devices can work.

They aren't tracking midichlorians -- it looks like these tracking devices are used to track all sorts of targets. Little green dude is the only one we know of that is strong in the force.

I'm thinking that there is some kind of physical technology that is being tracked. Maybe the kid was originally held captive and was somehow rescued/sold off to the guys that the Mandalorian took him from. Before being rescued, he could have been implanted with the tracking device somewhere sensitive like in his brain? That would require some precise technology to remove, something that a small isolated rural planet like that wouldn't have. That would also explain why Leia or Luke didn't have a tracker on them in the first place.

Sidenote: The Mandalorian mentioned that there was no technology on the planet that could take down an AT-ST. Yet the woman soldier he teamed up with was a veteran of the Battle of Endor and literally would have seen multiple AT-STs be taken down by a tribe of Ewoks with a bunch of tree trunks. And those AT-STs would have been operated by trained imperial soldiers and in pretty good condition, instead of being driven by raiders who managed to likely steal one and keep it in a swamp for the past 15 yrs.
