I watched the first ep and it was a hard "ok". It didn't quite feel like Star Wars, a lot of things look a bit too shiny. Some of the music choices, especially early on were just stupid, like when the Mandalorian is meeting his contact and they're distractingly playing a suspicious musical cue and theme. It really took me out of the show, but I love Star Wars and since my partner is a huge Disney fan, we're paying for it, so I'll probably watch it.

Hope it gets better.

wouldn't that be because it's recorded like any tv show, and not on film like a movie?

ep2 was ok, like someone else gotta wait a few more to see how it takes off (which I'm optimistic about).

So far it looks great, and even though I understand and agree that it's incredibly cynical I love baby Yoda.

That said, so little happens every episode. I wish there was more story and characters, and then punctuate the season with some big action scene, instead it's a ton of actions scenes with barely in story and the characters trickled in.

At least the first 3 eps were. I wasn't planning on watching it, but then I heard Werner Herzog is in it, so I had to check it. I came for Herzog, staid for Baby Yoda.

I have a feeling that the post-ROS era for Star Wars is going to be entirely comprised of live-action television shows. Knowing that there are going to be three of these series going on simultaneously makes me think of Star Trek from back in the day.

I always suspected that the future laid in the mind of Dave Filoni. Alongside Jon Favreau, these two are going to usher in a new era for the Star Wars universe in ways that Kathleen Kennedy didn't only because she was merely just your usual Hollywood producer.

George lucas is a notorious kurasawa fanboy. The originals had a ton of influence from the Hidden Fortress. Plus, kurasawa's movies invented the 'western' genre. Magnificent seven is the seven samurai, and Yojimbo is fistfull of dollars. The Mandlaorian is a space western, so it makes sense to throw in homages/tropes to kurasawa.

You know those goofy wipes in all star wars movies? Like, the sliding wipe? Total kurasawa.

This. Kurosawa was a huge John Ford fan. You could argue kurosawa was highly influential on spaghetti westerns and the more gritty takes on westerns in general but invent the western he did not. Hell Yojimbo takes place in a classic T street because of the influence of westerns.

Kurosawa's a master and there's a lot of stuff that can be attributed to his influence (gathering a crew from 7 samurai, Rashomon as a narrative device) but let's not make shit up

There is no canon reason why Mandalorians don't remove their helmets. Jango Fett and Boba Fett both routinely removed their helmets, but in the old lore, Boba rarely removed his helmet near others because he expected to be attacked at almost any and all times.
Boba Fett in the old lore was insane, though; he had the fear center of his brain removed, and he had the pain and pleasure centers detached from his emotional processing parts of his brains. That required an illegal and highly dangerous surgery, but it had the result of making him immune to torture, seduction, and pretty much every kind of chemical and emotional manipulation. He could sense pleasure and pain and react to them in perfect calm, regardless of the intensity.

These Mandalorians are just Spartans in space, except "never drop your shield" is replaced with "never take off your bullet-proof helmet with tactical communications and radar."

But Spartans also don't take off their helmets either unless you count when Master Chief took his off at the end of Halo 1 and Osiris Team in Halo 5.

> implying Womens Rights can justify child pedophilia and military indoctrination
why do you hate men and children so much?

“the role of women in Spartan society as we can observe it remains fundamentally instrumental: in the Spartan social order, spartiate women existed to produce spartiate boys. The exercise that spartiate girls undertook was justified under the assumption that it produced fitter (male) children.

Spartiate women appear to have had no more say in who they married than other Greek women, which is to say effectively none. Marriages seem to have been arranged and the marriage ceremony itself as it it related to us was a ritualized abduction (Plut. Lyc. 15.3-5; Hdt. 6.65) without even a fig-leaf of (largely illusory) consent present in some other ancient marriage rituals. Husbands apparently also ‘lent out’ their wives to other spartiate men (Plut. Lyc 15.7; Xen. Lac. 1.7-8); descriptions of this passage stress the consent of the men involved, but completely omit the woman’s consent, although Xenophon implies that the woman involved will “want to take charge of two households” and thus presumably be in favor; I have my doubts.“

Fuck your dumb ass shit, buddy. I like being analytical and challenging myself with what I consume in media and this shitty show definitely isn’t doing that. Hell, the music sounds so lame I can’t even pretend to be interested intellectually.

Go on, bet you can’t because all anybody is watching for is the sentimental value attached to the beloved franchise.

I think you’ve missed my point.

No, and no, and no.

I was giving you an honest opinion, based on what little I can gather without having watched. That’s my only IRL reference, regardless of how far a reach it is to use as a tool for this discussion. Coke-head roommates who always hated StarWars liking this show is enough for me to realize it very likely appeals to the exact opposite kind of viewership than what the franchise was built on.

TV is also going to be by default be made for more casual viewing, which I can understand and forgive, but hey, just my opinion.

I wouldn’t consider it narcissistic as much as it was genuine honest reflection for you. I could have just shit on this thread and not given a basis that I went off.

But...you have not wathed it. And the rest of your post sounds like when i was 19 and got an ego because i watched Down By Law or a David Lynch movie. Film styles vary and if you cant enjoy a show based on classic westerns, seven samurai and anime then that is on you but you should at least try to watch it instead of writing huge assumptions based on your friend who is the shittiest person in town. Why the fuck do you hang out with the shittiest person in town unless you are not shitty yourself? Also multiple people here said the movies are trash and they enjoy the show so its not just nostalgia. Its just a well witten show with small scalr stories and a cowboy vibe to it.

Even RLM like it and they shit in star wars and star wars fanboys the most

But I will defend myself as im actually deemed so much the opposite of shitty around here that this fucker latched onto me for the reputation boost as people think highly enough to assume he isnt THAT bad when associated with a good person. Lo and behold I am moving away soon because the fucker has tarnished muh life. There, I gave you your answer.

yeah im from the west as is bro
i really dont get off on space cowboy stuff other than cowboy BeBop maybe thats why, dunno.

I think you mean that cunt from Black Books.

Also just finished the season. Shit was cash. I liked that while there was an overarching narrative, it was mostly an episodic serial where each episode was a self contained adventure. Serialized storytelling has fallen out of favor in the streaming age, but it's a refreshing throwback to an age where you don't have to invest an entire weekend into binge watching a bloated 10-14 hour movie, masquerading as a TV show. Looking at you, every Marvel Netflix series.

So you just dont know shit about Star Wars, then? That other filmmaker's work were an ENORMOUS source of inspiration for George Lucas when he was writing all 6 of his Star Wars films. Which is why the Jedi wear robes that are so clearly inspired by samurai robes and fight with swords. As well as the whole philosophy of the force and that light-side/dark-side stuff, and more.

I haven't seen this. I know next to nothing about it. What is the main foundation in terms of plot of this movie? Terrorism is there. That's what I guess when I look at the character. I have no idea though. You couldn't be more ignorant than me. lol He might be that or a military person involved in violent scenarios. I see him shooting out stuff that is an issue for people. With whatever guns he has. I would like to know what the movie is about. Is it on Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB? I just want the basic core of the story and what it covers. The rudimentary components of the movie. The minimum understanding level to save energy and brain space. lol Genereating a lot of effort in life is hard.

This. I had a feeling they were going to like The Mandalorian because it's a bunch of small stories with low stakes and likeable characters. I watched it after watching RIse Of Skywalker and I absolutely hated that movie so I was very hesitant and was on my phone playing games the entire first episode until it hooked me and I realized it's a completely different tone.

RLM are right when they say it's a real throwback to the original trilogy as it takes George Lucas's original inspirations of samurai and knights.

It's a throwback to old westerns and samurai movies with some 90s sci-fi television mixed in. Main character is a bounty hunter who is a part of a creed called The Mandalorians. He goes against his code to save a young baby. It's based after Return Of The Jedi but before the new JJ Abrams shit shows. Most episodes have contained stories which is fun and refreshing for such a huge franchise. Actions scenes are their but they are not the point of the show. A lot of interesting characters and it doesn't rely to hard on fan service and nostalgia. Even has it's own soundtrack that sounds little like old star wars soundtracks.

I'm hoping they stick with the small scale and the directors/writers they have been using seem to get it. I find Star Wars has jumped the gun and I watched the chinese cam version of the new movie because I cared so little about it. Despite that. This show made me like it. I went in thinking it was going to suck. I recommend.

I started watching this show last night.

What the fuck is this shit? New Star Wars that's actually good? Clearly the world is about to fucking end.

The only things I don't like are how Mando has a carbonite freezing chamber on that tiny-ass spaceship when they needed an entire gigantic facility for it in Empire, and in the marketplace you can see people cooking and eating those little laughing goblin guys from Jabba's palace. They have no fucking meat on them at all, nobody would want to eat those things.

Other than that though, awesome show. Almost makes up for how terrible the sequels were.

Jabba was going to eat Salacious Crumb; even renamed him to "salacious crumb". He was originally a scholar. They're a sentient race, which makes it pretty weird they're being enslaved and eaten, though.
When you live on an apocalyptic desert planet full of murders, you eat what you can get. In the "Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina" book, the bartender took Greedo's corpse and used it to make fancy cocktails. Supposedly he started kidnapping Rhodians after that when his stock ran low.
There are races that breathe chlorine and ammonia, so surely there is a race that thinks gristly little rat demons are food.

I started watching this yesterday since I got a one year free for Disney + through Verizon and am already halfway through the season. It's good so far and I like the action and Pedro Pascal as Mando since he was great on Narcos. It also helps that the show's runtime is like 30-50 minutes so each episode doesn't feel so dragged out and being obligated to be an hour or more long each.

I'm not surprised about why Baby Yoda became huge considering Star Wars has always tried to market this sort of stuff in the past and baby versions of popular characters has a history to it like The Muppets and other franchises that have already done it but it gives Mando a purpose to his mission.

Finished the season. 2nd half was stronger and much more action packed but this is the type of Star Wars I like as I did with Rogue One. Even with Baby Yoda, which is integral to the show’s storyline and Mando’s character development, this is the side of Star Wars that I wish they would show more of and I’m glad they did with this show at least. I’m not holding out hope for an R-rated/TV-MA rated Star Wars but this comes close to that at least.

Yeah basically. Disney gonna make a shit ton of money just off of that especially with all the merch that’s coming out this month.

Lol i forgot about that. Going back to one’s roots usually works well in a franchise’s favor. Just look at James Bond when they came out with Casino Royale after Die Another Day.
