    I'm not sure I can say critically that it is better, but I have to say I am enjoying this second series a whole lot more than the first. So far, anyway.
    Much as I consider myself a Star Wars fan I am basically just a films guy, but I'm enjoying hearing about all the links to the animated series' and such like. Bo-Katan and Cobb Vanth came across as great characters despite my not knowing who they were.
    I'd started off a little sceptical about an increasing relaince on the TV series', but I'll be really pleased if The Mandalorian continues the way it is going. I just hope they don't balls things up with Boba Fett.

    At this point I am pretty sure that we will see Boba Fett in the second to last or last episode, attacking Mando and getting his armor back, setting up season 03, pretty much like Moff Gideon. Maybe Boba strikes a deal with the Empire to get his armor back hunting down Mando as I don't know why Mando should return to Tatooine this season.

    Guess it's safe to assume now that it was indeed Boba on Tatooine who approached the dead assassin in season 01, no?

    Spoiler: This Friday will see Ahsoka as Filoni directed the episode and there will probably be a fight with Gideon as he tracks Mando and the Child to her hideout. Maybe they even follow through with the themes they alluded to last episode, midichlorians, Dark Troopers, cloning/creating Snoke or at least a body for Palpatine to use and slowly building the First Order. Didn't Favreau once say that they will touch on how the First Order came to be? Well, the mentioned the Unknown Regions already on the show, so here we go. I just don't know if I would celebrate Baby Yoda being directly responsible for the rise of the First Order or if him being "the father" of Snoke/Palpatine would be utterly ridiculous. But with Star Wars you never know... maybe it's Ahsoka whose blood will give rise to the Empire in the end, saving Baby Yoda. We shall see...

    Who wants to see Dolph Lundgren make an appearance so that Carl Weathers can beat him in a blaster fight and get the last laugh?

    While it offered some interesting tidbits here and there and some cool thoughts by Filoni I just can't stand the show, especially Favreau and Kathleen Kennedy and their obnoxious circle jerk while being full of themselves to no end. Wish they'd do a proper documentary with more technical things and the animation, puppetry departement than this. Some of the directors don't seem too comfortable with the format anyway.

    agreed on both fronts. Watched the first episode and it seemed like everyone was having a great time, though Taika almost seemed out of place the way it was filmed.

    I'm still enjoying the show but the whole 'i'll help you if you help us and er, oh thanks for the help talk to this guy, he'll help you if you help him' format is getting old.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one to get that impression. Filoni's story is fascinating and I enjoyed hearing the other director's respective paths but I don't particularly care to hear Pascal or Carano given the supposed behind the scenes drama. Seems like a missed opportunity but I'll give the second season a go.

    Exactly, they all have very little to say, actors and directors, whereas Favreau is constantly interrupting people and leading the conversation. It seems like Filoni is the only one allowed to talk about Star Wars a little more and drop some knowledge, where I had the impression that the old Star Wars special effects guys got cut short the most. As that's my favorite part of the show, I get really fed up with this. I understand that Favreau is also quite knowledgable about tech-stuff and filming, but c'mon...

    Let's see... I really want to hear what Robert Rodriguez has to say and how his episode is going to turn out. Spoiler: With the cloning and Dark Troopers, I can picture some nasty "zombie" stuff coming from him. Either way I'm sure we will see some gun fights in his episode. Guess he had a blast on set with all the creature designs and props.

    I too wasn't a fan of the Gallery thing, definitely too cheesy/self serving at first.
    I definitely enjoyed the episodes of Gallery about the music and the callbacks to previous Star Wars stuff though, so if you hated the first few episodes just watch those.
