The Mandalorian (Star Wars TV show)

Recommended Posts

About the Guild. Some Bounty Hunters, such as the droid, were told that baby yoda was a kill mission. But Mando was told it was capture, but maybe kill if need be. Which is in contrast to what his boss told him, which was purely 'capture.'

How did these discrepancies come to be?

Was the capture part only ever a lie to calm the Dr? But then, could he do the work he was interested in on a daed baby yoda? It seems not, based on the exchange with him and his boss 'do what you want quickly, I cant hold them off' (paraphrased).

Was the Guild Boss in on something? Is he working for good to save baby yoda?

Is there two separate Guilds now, in the aftermath of the fallen empire? I ask because none of his fellow guild members seem to have attempted to kill baby yoda even though they've had plenty of chances. We only know for certain that the droid was sent on a kill mission. Is the droid from a different guild?

Even just the thumbnail for ch 6 looks amazing! Cant wait to watch this :headbang:

Ch 7 will arrive early next week, on Wednesday, and will include a TROS teaser.

EDIT: Ch 6 is epic!!

Spoiler

I really didnt think that Bill Burr would work out, but it did imho.

That chick reminds me of my church camp sweetheart. Daggers and all! :lol:

That was Dave Filonni piloting the one X Wing!!!

I dont understand if its implied that this was all baby yodas plan? Nor if his force powers contributed to destroying that droid?

I really didn't like the 5th episode, but wow did I love the 6th. I agree with your thoughts on it.

I went to re-watch ch 6 and when I finished watching it the second time, I just hit play again and watched a third time!

I think its the theatrical costuming and acting by some characters. And the almost comic book feel to some of it that I find so engaging. (I think this ensemble is what season 2 of Strangers Things tried and, imo, failed at with the punk criminal squad)

And in the midst of all that, they wrote Burrs lines perfectly in his voice. Theres just so much 'interest,' like its firing on all cylinders.

it's the "what, they don't like Falafel?" guy from Batman Begins! I love that guy. Fun episode and I like that it was longer too. I didn't care for episodes 4 and 5. Glad to see it picking up. Mando took down 5 or 6 droids. That was sick. Baby Yoda is a G.

Another great one! 

Spoiler

Baby Yoda was demonstrating some dark side traits. Chocking is always dark side I think, traditionally? And his face went 'evil' as he did it. Interesting. He's 'mastered' healing and seems to display dark side too... huh.

Oh Queel. Oh no baby yoda!

I heard someone comment that Kara Doon's outfit looks like a fan-film costume and now I cant get stop seeing it that way. Still like her look way better than the concept art had her though.

Chapter 8 is another great one! More story advancement, lots of bad-assery and some humour.

Spoiler

Not sure how I feel about the humorous banter between the biker scouts... It makes sense and all. But I dunno.

I had Queel on my mind the whole episode. His story really drives home just how horrible Empire is. Its heartbreaking to look on his grave.

That Mando chick smashed open the storm troopers mask! :headbang:

Perosnally, I really liked the opening to the episode. If there's one thing I've learned by discussing SW online, it's that SW fans need to lighten up lol. I'd love to see more scenes like that in the future. Not a ton, but more.

I think that for me it wasnt the fact that it was humorous, but that it wasnt the type I associate with Star Wars. And that it 'broke the 4th wall' on the Empire, so to speak. Which, yes, makes sense that the Empire is no more and there is clearly less order and decorum among the various war lords with their Storm Troopers and Biker Scouts. Id like them to still be ominous and scary, I guess.

I really love the physical humour in Ep4 when Luke is in the Storm Trooper helmet and he kinda makes an aloof gesture that looks funny when wearing that helmet. And all Hans looks of bewilderment in his romance with Leia. That stuff really adds to the re watching ability to me. As far as spoken humour, I like things in passing in Star Wars, like in Mando Ch 7 when they are pinned down and the craft lands, then Kara says "Who the heck is that." But its right back to action.

Like, as much as I love Ashoka the early seasons with the whole 'Snipes' and "Sky Guy" didnt land for me either. Thats the closest I can think to the length of banter we see in the opening of Mando 8

All this said, I love Poes trolling at the beginning of Ep8. Like a lot. So I guess Im just all over the place on this, lol.

 

TL;DR Im not sure how I feel about banter lasting that long and associate other comedic stylings with Star Wars, but I have laughed at this type of humour in Star Wars before. So, who knows! lol
