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.

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.

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.“

in case you haven’t realized yet, people are typically fucking stupid as far as our species goes in the modern age. If the majority like it, chances are it’s been simplified for any dumb fuck to enjoy


Oh, did I mention the friend I referenced has never liked StarWars and not watched any of the movies before? Truly just a casual TV show for any casual viewer who likes casually watching casual shit for their casual perception to casually relax with.


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.

Sure, if I wanted to dull myself down and feel like a complete fucking mong then I’d check this shit out myself. But, judging by the overwhelming success of the marketing team debuting baby ““”yoda””” I’d say they don’t really need my support.

So don’t hate :^) it is okay for people to dislike things you like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.

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.

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.

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.

Does the soundtrack resemble or even compare to the orchestra's conducted by John Williams who did all their past works? No?

Then i guess it still breaks tradition and therefore separates it as yet another non-starwars, basic tier cinema w/ a StarWars Skin slapped onto it for the lulz.

enjoy giving Disney money after taking fat dumps on their new toy all the years prior. Will I ever continue pretending this adopted and ruined franchise is deserving of my support and money again? Nope. Not gonna pretend they didn't shit all over it and the fans just because muh fkn Boba story ark and muh Kenobi meme series.

This. I think people expect it to be as good as The Wire because they hear its good. Its a B+ show and I like it. I will continue to watch it and it's not an overexageration when people say it feels the most like the original star wars of anything so far.

Probably because GEORGE LUCAS is on set for this show and the five directors are all star wars nerds(one of them is the person who did the clone wars cartoon if people like that). Disney should have trusted these nerds with the main line movies but instead they tossed them on this show probably not thinking much about it but it ended up feeling the most like star wars of anything they have done.

Not surprised you are banned and not shocked to see you are the ban evading asshole on /wooo/. But I want to address this comment anyways.

The soundtrack is good because it doesn't just rely on John Williams nostalgia. Does it compare to them? In my opinion yes. It does a great job at pointing out it's in the Star Wars universe but a different story with different characters and not just Darth Vader themes to get your baby dick hard. If you think the only way for it to feel like star wars is to have all the same characters and music then you should just watch those shitty sequel trilogy movies.

Mandolorian is not about a boba fett story arc. This season will have one it seems but that is not the idea of the show at all. That's a side plot. I thought it was great they didn't bother in season 1 with that shit either. As far as money goes. I do not give Disney money. I watch all this shit for free because I am not a 55 year old who can't use a computer.

I think you misinterpreted the mentions of old characters being re-used. That is what's being done anyways, with or without Skywalkers it's still just relying on past fans hopes of more Boba and Kenobi stories. Just as shitty as the sequels, IMO.

Musically, nothing will compare to john williams, and that was always a staple of the StarWars franchise. Without him, it's just one more peg taken off what is left standing.

Yeah it was a pretty good episode especially that whole sequence of Mando, Cobb and the Tusken Raiders trying to kill the Krayt Dragon at the end. That was really well done. Even the opening scene where Mando goes to Gor Koresh and then fights off his henchmen was cool. A good way to kick off the season and look forward to the next episode.

I do like the show doing self-contained episodes highlighting Mando's job as a bounty hunter while tying into the overarching story of Mando seeking out other Mandalorians to reunite the Child with its species. I figured that with Cobb wearing Boba Fett's armor and then giving it to Mando at the end would set up Boba's reappearance after they teased it last season. If there's anyone that knows about the force and Jedi, it's Boba.

Watched the past two episodes. I liked them continuing the overarching storyline of Mando's quest to return The Child with escorting Frog Lady to Trask (and having to fend off a bunch of spiders on an icy planet) and then meeting Bo-Katan and helping her and the Watch take back their weapons and hijack an Imperial freighter. Lots of action in that episode.

One thing I'll give the show credit for is they do a good job with pacing and not making each episode feel too long and drawn out and they space out the action and non-action scenes nicely.

I mean having George Lucas on set and consult with show director Dave Filoni has helped the show stay true to the Star Wars universe Lucas created rather than become something like the sequel trilogy. Funny enough Lucas was the one that came up with the name for Axe Woves.

Yeah that was pretty funny. Also very good episode Don't think the thing in the tube is Snoke. Had a huge growth on his shoulder and his face scars were different. I think that maybe they are trying to use the childs blood to infuse the force with people or something? And that is an example of it not going well. Maybe that will lead to the lore of how Snoke was created as he was the one subject that worked out with this experiment and then all that stupid clone shit in the sequel trilogy happens. The vats at the end are clearly Dark Troopers from old Legends lore which is pretty sick because Disney retconned them when they trashed Legends. Im nervous about the show getting too entangled with mainstream star wars shit. I just dont want to see Luke and shit like that. I think the show runners feel the same way but all it takes is some suit at Disney showing up to their set and being like "WE NEED MORE OF DAT BABY YODA AND MAKE SURE REY AND FINN SHOW UP FOR SOME REASON EVEN THOUGH ITS NOT SET DURING THE SAME TIMELINE HURRR

Yeah they're supposedly using The Child's blood to create clones that would have the force in them since they had mentioned an m-count, which I guess means midichlorians are still canon then. Snoke's theme was heard during the tank scene at the end of the episode, which is why there's speculation that the show could go into showing the origins of his character. I mean if the show can at least clear up stuff from the sequel trilogy, then I'd be okay with that.

The show is built from ground up around surface level fanservice, it's literally just "What if Boba Fett and Yoda plus that one robot background character that everyone remembers for some reason".

This is how I feel about it. I'm a big star wars fan (including games and shows and the Christmas special) and just don't see the hype for mandalorian. It's basic fan service. I appreciate some things about it and it is better than the movies but it's not that good and it's not good star wars at all. It's just fan service. "baby" Yoda is one of the most annoying characters/concepts ever.

Star wars has been fan service since Disney bought it. Maybe we should just accept it's dead and move on. I never saw the last movie in the sequel trilogy. I don't see the point.

As a life-long Star Wars fan I have to entirely disagree with your point. There is fan service in the show for sure, but how do you write and set a show in the post RotJ universe WITHOUT fan service? Is it fan service if there's a Mon Calamari on screen? It is fan service if there's a lightsaber?

I'm not going to say that Star Wars has improved immeasurably under Disney's watch... but are you really telling me that the Prequel trilogy wasn't 99% fan service?

You're not wrong of course it had to have it but I think that's all it is.

Im also part of a minority that likes the prequels. I think they told vital parts of the story that made the original trilogy so much more effective. Sure some of the effects and acting were bad but I can laugh at it and enjoy the story. I enjoyed it as a kid in the theater when I could only watch the originals on VHS. There were some entertaining new characters too (watto). Games books and cartoons added to story in interesting ways also.

Sequel trilogy and mandalorian have added nothing to star wars for me. They are useless spectacles. Episodes of Mando are OK but not great.

This. As someone who has been a fan of star wars since the early 90s I don't understand any of these people talking shit because it's becoming more and more obvious they just saw some facebook memes or one episode or something. I don't expect them to love it or watch the show fully but if you have critisisms than they need to be valid and more and more I am seeing people say shit that doesn't even make sense. At least here on /mtv/. Like the things they have issues with in the show are not even things in the show.

The Mandolorian has way more layers than just fan service. The people who are mad want to be mad though. They are excited about the idea of NOT liking it.

This is the modern era of fandoms. Whether it be wrestling or sci fi or anything. We've been fed piles of shit for a long time now so I understand why people are pissed but the age of youtube and forums has made everyone some extreme critic but it's getting easy to point out who actually has valid critiques and who is just someone trying to be one of those people who hates things.

I admit I'm not reading current novels but I've heard there are good ones. I'm just getting through old books (Zahn and more) which I'm really enjoying. Again, they make the story so interesting by adding new things. The new movies and mandalorian just don't do that. It's all the same and doesn't change anything. The sequels started to get interesting, then wiped that and got potentially interesting again, then from what I understand threw it all away and had a crappy ending. Mando might be getting to something good but it's taking its time and so far it's nothing special. It's not terrible but it's not great. That episode with the bad squad or whatever was just bad.

I wish I could stop watching it all and give up but I am such a star wars nerd. They've already done so much damage to the story that I need to keep watching to hope for redemption.

I know "headcanon" is a cringy term, but I like to remember those Zahn books when I think of my favorite SW characters in their old age. I just treat the Disney flicks like how Marvel has a shitload of dumb multiverses where Spiderman is Gwen Stacy or w/e. I'm sure they're good movies to certain viewers but I just can't find enjoyment in watching them, and I'm fairly easy to entertain, my standards are very average.

The prequels are fine, but they are the most fanservicey of the Star Wars trilogies. Instead of trying to tell an original story, the prequels are trying to "fill in the blanks" and create new canon for the franchise.

Honestly, the real problem with the prequels was over-production, shitty writing, and sub-par acting, the actual plot/story was alright.

These past two episodes have been great. I thought Rosario Dawson did a good job portraying Ahsoka and her dual lighsabers vs. Morgan's beskar spear duel was cool. Same with Mando's Western-like showdown with Lang. Most importantly though, Chapter 13 finally gave us The Child's backstory with his name being Grogu, which I'm sure will disappoint people but I don't really mind, and that he was rescued from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the Great Jedi Purge being hidden and suppressing his powers for his safety.

This last episode was even better than last week's thanks to Robert Rodriguez's directing and Boba Fett kicking so much ass against those Stormtroopers especially using that Tusken Raider Gaffi Stick and then grabbing his old armor and taking out the rest of them. It sucks Grogu got kidnapped but I felt that the show finally needed to put him in danger and build towards an eventual Mando-Moff Gideon showdown.

I like Mando but I'm getting a lot of deja vu while watching it. Maybe it's the western (but in space) format that's way too familiar or the amount of call-backs to the original trilogy.

Agreed, I don't think it's bad but it's so cliche and stereotypical it's getting cringe. I just watched the ashoka Episode and the parenting scenes and the last samurai sword fight with the Chinese backdrop was too much. I turned it off like what am I watching?

The scene where the pirates tried to hijack the transport with Mando and Mayfeld on it felt very reminiscent of a Vietnam War film especially when the Tie Fighters bombed those pirates. It was pretty kino though. Bill Burr really shined though in this episode and I got a kick out of the one line when he said “C’mon, let’s go fill out those TPS reports, so we can go recharge the power coils!”

>>417637
>>417652
It's not really that as much as it is Mando's interpretation of The Way is much more devout in keeping the helmet on rather than say Bo-Katan and the Death Watch for instance. However, the security system's facial scans flags for wanted criminals and Mayfeld was afraid of being recognized by Valin Hess, which is why Mando had to do it. Plus the scene ties back to their conversation on the transport about having to compromise your beliefs, which is what Mando had to do to get the coordinates for Moff Gideon's ship so he can rescue Grogu.

Honestly I'm not sure. Mandalorians in KOTOR looked slightly different and had clans. Bobba Fett is a solo bounty hunter. I think the story is he is one of the last mandalorians after they were purged in the mandalorian wars. He might have been the last at the time, but now mandos around I guess not.

I could be wrong, but I imagine they will end the season with a Jedi answering Grogu's call.

If that were to be the actual cliffhanger, any guesses?
I think it's going to be another one of his kind. Yoda's son or some wife or some shit, and next season we are going to go to whatever world they come from and create the canon for whatever species they are.

To clear up some confusion. Mandolorians are a race with multiple creeds. The one our protagonist grew up in was a very strict order and you are not to take your mask off. There are other creeds that are okay with taking their helmets off. He meets some this season and then Bill Burrs character talks some psychology on him in that last video. There has been an arc showing that Mando was going to eventually take his helmet off and realize that his belief system is flawed.

As far as Bobba Fett goes. His father was a foundling(meaning mandolorians found him and it's in their code to save children and recruit them). So Jango is a Mando. Bobba is his son. He took his fathers armor

That season finale exceeded all of my expectations. Fennec, Cara, Bo-Katan and Koska rolling up on all those stormtroopers and officers taking them out was some badass shit. And I'm glad we got our Mando vs. Moff showdown though Mando inadvertently defeating Moff and getting the Dark Saber instead of Bo-Katan I certainly can see playing a part in next season since she wanted it to help take back Mandalore. I also wasn't ready for young Luke Skywalker with R2D2 but Luke's appearance and taking Grogu to train him like Yoda did with Luke in Episode 5 is a good way to bridge the gap between this show and the Skywalker Saga. I do hope this show could show what happened with Luke in between the end of episode 6 and episode 7. Really looking forward to next season.

Correct. Not to mention Boba was a clone of Jango, which he and Koska got into a quarrel about the purity of Boba's Mandolorian lineage leading an awesome tornado DDT through a table.

Maybe I'm still a hater but I really didn't think much. What happened to Disney not wanting to use old characters and create new stories? Oh look it's Luke. Look forward to seeing how they're going to explain no mention of Grogu in the original trilogy. Moff was probably the best part but he's kind of a try hard. Other characters are boring and simple stereotypes.

Its just Disney doing what Disney does best with these things: not committing to anything and leaving it open enough that it could be good so people keep watching. It's still not good yet.

I hope Grogu is out of Mando now so they can focus on him and make a cool show. Get rid of Bo Katan and her mandos too they're annoying. just give us Mando being Mando

I think the general consensus from star wars fans that actually watched Mandolorian(not the ones who just shit on it from the outside) is that the show was good and one of the best Star Wars things to come out in a very long time. A bit fan servicy but every time it happened it was used to continue the story in a natural fashion without it feeling forced and weird(like the sequel trilogy). And on top of all that people seem to feel a bit worried about the announcement of a million more star wars shows right away. Including myself.

Mandolorian works because the two guys at the top are big star wars nerds and put all their energy into this show. They go to the sound stages they go to the props guys. They are involved in every little detail. They even ask George Lucas for his input on things. It's lightning in a bottle. If you spread this crew thin across 12 shows you are going to ruin it. Disney is fucking stupid. I will give the new shows a chance as the come but I have a bad feeling about all this.

This is what Star Wars has always been about. It's not a complex character study or high drama; it's serialized melodrama with cool shit happening. I really don't understand all of the hate for The Mandalorian in this thread either; it hits almost every note for a solid 7 or 8 out of 10 series.

Hahaha.

Baby Yoda really ruins it (Grogu I know). I read a story on the BBC how the show was basically rewritten because one of the writers or producers had their 5 year old watch it and they freak out when baby Yoda isn't on screen asking where he is. Explains why a whole bunch of the beginning was written around cuteso dumbass baby Yoda scenes.

I get maybe I'm not the intended audience anymore. I just think it's funny people who like the show and many other popular shows right now know it's written for a basic simple and stupid audience and they're like yeah that's me! Forget the story and the history and the canon that's for nerds. But it's the coolest thing ever when they bring back old characters!

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic about it but I thought it was a fun action packed finale.

>Look forward to seeing how they're going to explain no mention of Grogu in the original trilogy.

Ahsoka explained that Grogu was a former Jedi youngling rescued from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the Great Jedi Purge, which was shown in Revenge of the Sith. In storyline, he wouldn't have been around during the events of the original trilogy because he was in hiding for his own safety and why he suppresses his Force powers.

>I hope Grogu is out of Mando now so they can focus on him and make a cool show. Get rid of Bo Katan and her mandos too they're annoying. just give us Mando being Mando

I doubt that. Star Wars for the most part has been a team effort kind of thing.

>>417765
That's a good assessment of Star Wars fans that watched the show and I felt the same way about it. The success of The Mandalorian isn't just because of having an immediate breakout character like Grogu, although it certainly has played a vital role in its success, but because of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni's directing and writing that tries to stay faithful to the Star Wars people that grew up on before the sequel trilogy remember. Consulting with George Lucas does help with that too.

Disney trying to capitalize on one of its golden gooses in Star Wars to drive Disney+ subs by announcing all these shows is overkill no doubt but as long as the shows have good showrunners at the helm (please no Scott Buck) and they space them out so it doesn't feel overwhelming to viewers, then it could work.

There has been discussion going for over a week now since the season started. People are still posting reviews, critiques, analysis and theory videos/articles everywhere. Merch is everywhere and people are raving about this last season. People who didn't watch season 1 and now going back and watching both based on the hype alone.They just released a lego mandalorian set.

In this thread, discussion stopped right after the season ended. See last substantive post from c-higgy Dec 23, 2 junk posts Dec 24, I claim discussion ended the 26th and you post on the 30th that it's thriving.

Lol at Mando and the kids that defend it. It's a decent show for its audience: immature and unknowledgable "star wars fans" who think making fun of "star wars nerds" is cool. Or it's like they're trying to win all the people that didn't think star wars was cool. I don't know but I personally don't like it.

Yeah it's a very popular show especially one that is based off of a popular and long-running franchise like Star Wars.

But it's also a testament to the benefits of watching weekly shows vs. binging shows as there's more sustained hype and discussion over a longer period of time with everyone being able to keep up. Sure, Stranger Things is also a very popular show too but after the first week when everyone's watched the season and tried to avoid spoilers based on how much of the season they've watched, then it falls off.

Good season overall. Wasn't a fan of Skywalker in the finale. De-aged deepfake CGI characters will never not look uncanny and awful, and if they want to keep digging up these fanservice corpses, the least they could do is just re-cast them. Obi Wan would've made more sense since they're gearing up for a spin-off anyway.

You're really gatekeeping the fandom eh?

I love Mandolorian and I grew up on Star Wars, half of the stories I loved from the books aren't even canon anymore. Would you be happy if Disney made a Shadows of the Empire series?

Or a Splinter in the Mind's Eye movie?

How deep of a cut do you need? It's possible that you just don't enjoy Star Wars anymore, that's fine too.

This board has literal spam all over it. The board itself its crickets. Star Wars dicussion between actual Star Wars fans is at a high right now. You wouldn't know that because you're not a Star Wars fan. Which is fine. Not everyone is. But the show has done great and people like it. What's the problem? You don't like it? Cool Stop pretending that nobody cares about it though when for over a month all Star Wars communities have been praising it and talking about it and making theories. I still see youtube channels coming up in my feed with theories and analysis videos.

This thread alone has like 6 posters. 420chan is not a good gauge of the popularity of something. The fact that we are even having this discussion is proof that the show has garnered some attention.

And another thing. You're saying the show is bad because this thread doesn't have enough engagement for you. Do you honestly only like things that are super popular(which this show is by the way.)? So you only shop at places that are the most popular and only eat food that is the most popular and only watch shows and movies that are the most popular? That sucks friend.

Don't bother, people get really weird when it comes to star wars and only start thinking in extremes. The fact that something can be star wars and decent is hard to grasp for them, it either need to be utter shit and a massive embarassement to the franchise, or it's a masterpiece that's going to save the franchise. Nothing between these extremes exists so a pretty good (for tv) show that doesn't followed old tropes well executed without reinventing the wheel isn't something they seem to be able to comprehend. Just move on.

Lol normies seem to have trouble with the fact that real star wars fans don't like this show. It made no impact. It changed nothing. It added nothing and did nothing. Crappy show. Everyone will be all excited again next season because they're simple sheep and when it's over will go silent again because there's nothing to actually talk about.

It wasn't that terrible, but it wasn't good at all.

Through ep 2 for now, I never read any of the books so maybe they're pulling from some other Tatooine and Dantooine lore, but both eps shared a ton of similarity to stuff from KOTOR, one of my all time favorite games. So that was pretty cool.

Good stuff so far. It's not my favorite show ever but it's pretty solid.

I think the problem with this show is old "star wars fans" from prequel trilogy or earlier had expectations, which is not unfair for a IP as big as Star Wars. Disney was not willing to try and meet those expectations so those fans were disappointed.

There's a whole mother camp of "star wars fans" who may have watched older movies and just not thought much of them. They like new movies and shows because they're sheep and love all new "modern" things.

Note most people who like Mandalorian can't really justify it with anything more than it's not that bad. It's funny. They're the same people who want re-releases of games that came out 4 years ago. They love fidget spinners and can't wait for the new iphone.

The problem is people are taking Star Wars too seriously. It was always eye candy where Lucas could go crazy with creatures and costumes with a storyline that was improvised on the go. That's also why he reedited them constantly because he finally wanted to do what couldn't be done because of time/budget. If you're honest to yourself the story was never that good, the biggest twists have always just been unexpected parentship and not much else. It's just innocent fun with no real depth behind it and people need to stop acting like it's more than that.

What in the fuck are you talking about? I had three movies growing up in my house. The original Star Wars Trilogy. I had all the toys and wore star wars shirts to school every day. I bought the video games later as a teenager. Stop telling me I'm not a Star Wars fan because I liked Mandalorian. I didn't like the sequel trilogy but I liked Mando. A lot of LONG TIME Star Wars fans liked it. There are loads of youtube channels of old school star wars fans who are praising it.

It's okay if you don't like it but stop gatekeeping star wars.

She was trying to compare American conservatives being criticized and persecuted for their political views with the persecution of the Jews by Nazi Germany. The problem isn't just that this was the straw that broke the camel's back and it's not just about one bad analogy in this case. It's about Disney and Lucasfilm protecting its show from someone who has constantly and regularly said stupid, insensitive things that she wasn't ever going to apologize for and kept doubling down on. At some point you have to stop trying to talk her into not saying such things (which I have to assume her former talent agency did on the regular) and just walk away from it all.

Same situation happened with Roseanne Barr not too long ago and it's more trouble than it's worth keeping them around if they're going to be a distraction to a major studio like Disney do not want.

If you think conservative in America are treated the same way the Jews were treated by the Nazis, you're literally a holocaust denier.

Conservatives have one economically, even the democrats are doing everything they can to return us to the time before the new deal, trying turn the clock back so every job is a gig job.

So their own battlefield left is the social one, and they're losing and losing bad. So all they have left is to bitch and moan about how everyone should be nice to them when they're being gross.

And this came after she had made transphobic comments mocking gender pronouns, which Pedro Pascal had tried to teach her why that wasn't okay since his sibling is transgender. It also cost her being cast in Rangers of the New Republic, which she was supposed to star in but after that happened they didn't announce her being on the show. She could have easily have avoided this whole thing and kept her job if she didn't do all that but hey I guess Ben Shapiro got her a new job now.

Yes, there is more to Star Wars but it was all written after the first movies to explain the connections etc because a lot of that stuff just didn't make sense without background info. Doesn't change the fact that it started out as eye candy with an improvised storyline.
