True. Just recast Cara. Gina was pretty terrible honestly.

she was the original Ronda Rousey, but Rousey is more talented in both fields

chuds and bad faith right wing provocateurs are caping up for her because they wish they could sleep with her

Her character was fun but she can’t act for shit and isn’t worth keeping around if she can’t stop herself from posting her shitty ideas long enough to cash some easy paychecks.

Maybe they will recast her with someone who can deliver lines better than a malfunctioning Alexa.

Why can't these people keep their trap shut? I make a pittance compared to these people but you know what? I keep my views to myself on social media. Why? Because I don't like starving.

Mandalorian is baby stuff, tiny audience. She is now going to make a movie that will air exclusively for Daily Wire dot com readers. Big time.

Rjr could just mean in general he keeps politics off his social media. I abstain from talking politics on my personal social media feeds, not because I'm racist but because I don't want to deal with my family and friends from back east who are and would be appalled that I didn't vote straight ticket R. I get no pleasure in discussing politics or religion with anyone I really know so I don't choose to engage in that banter on Facebook. I enjoy it on Reddit and TWW where I have shared interests or educational background but that is it and otherwise we are largely anonymous.

I understand what rjr means but it's bc he misunderstands why she was fired. Or maybe it's the blurring of the lines and he considers the racism to be a part of right wing politics?

Regardless almost nobody ever gets fired for their politics. Hollywood is packed with conservatives, maybe not as vocally as liberals but they are def there

I haven't opined about her firing, just her inability to keep her trap shut. There have just been so many celebrities that have gotten in trouble over things they've said....you'd think they would have learned by now.

And the reason I keep my politics to myself is simply because it's no one's business but my own. The people I care to discuss politics with already know what i believe. I don't need my cousin twice removed on FB to know how I feel. And honestly I don't want my views to negatively impact my career. It wouldn't take much these days. A potential hiring manager who leans left? What if they saw a FB post and decided I wasn't a good fit?

Why would a hiring manager be able to read your FB posts?

After Andor, this show seems a little cartoonish.

It wasn't just him, it was just how the entire show was presented - there was something in the way that Greef Karga spoke, etc.

It's a different vibe than Andor for sure. But seems fairly in line with the first 2 seasons of The Mandalorian.

but it has been a bit jarring to go from "fascism is coming" to "my dogma is so silly that i need to go bathe in some mine waters"

^^After coming down from Andor, which was not your typical Star Wars fare, yes, it does seem cartoonish.

Why did he need a droid to analyze the atmosphere? He can pressurize his suit/helmet. Here on Earth in 2023 we have machines that can do that. He couldn't get some kind of device that he can just carry himself to do it?

I hated the Doctor Pershing show. Bad performances, terrible world-building. The episode stopped dead the minute that sequence started. What the hell were they thinking? It was so, so, so bad!

Yeah I was trying to put my finger on if it was the acting or what that kinda bothered me about it. I didn't seem to hate it as much as you did, but there were times when I wanted them to cut back.

I also think Andor is so much better at doing what they were kind of trying to do there that it just felt out of place on Mandalorian.

I did like the surplus of Mon Calamari.

I honestly think it wasn't the sequence alone that I was reacting to so strongly but the possibility of Star Wars becoming more like that and that sequence just being the tip of the iceberg.

One petty detail that really bugged me was that Pershing wears regular ol' glasses. Glasses. In Star Wars! Not neat goggles, not a cool visor, not cybernetic eyes, not even cloned eyes for the cloning researcher.

And yes, you are absolutely right about Andor. Like it's kind of embarrassing for The Mandalorian to even try and engage with any kind of political, ethical, or moral theme after Andor.

I like when Pershing says "it was a trap!" and they zoom in on the Mon Cal doctor

as for that whole plot line, I'll wait to see what becomes of it. Is the girl who betrayed him going to take the equipment back to someone so they can make Snoke or something

this was the low budget episode filler i hope. Felt really bad and out of place. Maybe it pay off later.
