    New episode felt rushed and tropey af. Some cool elements, but would have been much more affective with more time to flesh out what was going on here. It didn't earn any of the affection between our lead and the random woman that can shoot a blaster good... because... yea. With Bryce Dallas Howard's mediocre and generic directing chops.

    Hehe I actually thought the same. As soon as we get a woman sitting in the director's chair a character almost gets to take the Mandalorians helmet off. I know, I know... I shouldn't make that assumption, but it was pretty obvious in that episode.

    I just watched it again and I really didn't like those dog-people, but I still think the AT-ST looked extemely cool. Yet the episode served no real purpose other than introducing Carano's character, which I hope we get to see more in the future. Otherwise, there would be absolutely zero story progression and character developement.

    Off to watch some "missed easter egg" stuff on YouTube now!

    And here I thought this forum was mostly devoid of sexist bullshit.
    The episode was still written by Favreau....

    The cool elements I liked were definitely the AT-ST and Cara, but I'm pretty sure if an actual imperial were piloting that thing, they'd all be dead. Cara was a refreshing addition, and I guarantee we will see her again before the season ends; they have good chemistry and their team-up scene was pretty flashy.

    I can't look it up now, but how long were they with the villagers? I think I rememeber Cara saying they stayed there a few more weeks after the battle?

    While the release in other countries is still miles ahead, I think they are doing a pretty good job with keeping merchandise and toys for the Mandalorian away.

    Episode 3 was veeery good, but I liked 4 as well. Hell, how could I ever not like such cutesyness? The show doesn't take big risks, but what it does, it does well.

    Does Mando bullshit everyone about his mask? I didn't understand the scene where he took it off in front of everyone, then says he can't put it back up.

    When he took it off, he was concealed and not around anybody. Even though it looked as if he was just hanging right in the window when he was about it eat for everyone to see.

    as someone who unironically loves guy fieri (seriously, he's a cool guy who does a lot for charity, and officiated a 100-couple marriage ceremony in california once same-sex marriage was legalized) this made me giggle uncontrollably. my wife (who also loves him) had pretty much the same reaction.

    Ugh. The last episode wasn't my favorite by any means, but I was perfectly fine by it. I didn't need to have a shitty tantrum online about it blaming women for it either. What is wrong with people?

    1) Episode 3 was by far the best episode of the series. Directed by Deborah Chow.
    2) Favreau wrote the episode as a homage to the Seven Samurai. Sure if you had tightened up the directing a bit, and yeah some of the acting wasn't super impressive, it could have been a bit cleaner but the core essence would have been the same.
    3) If you are familiar with Filoni on Clone Wars and Rebels, he loves doing those kind of side homage episodes and they are usually par for the course and thus should not be unexpected.

    But sure let's all rage against Bryce Dallas Howard for ruining The Mandalorian. Fucking losers make me embarrassed to be a Star Wars fan.

    I told my son they were going to recruit a bunch of circus bugs and he didn't think it was very funny.

    Like at all, because he didn't get the reference. ugh, kids.

    Bryce Dallas Howard DOES suck though. Not b/c she's a woman, but just b/c she is not a good actress, and apparently not a good director either. Someone name something they've liked her in. I can't think of anything after going to her Wiki.

    Guess it's vinyl with one of those scratchy velvet-y surfaces. The Funko looks cute though.

    Can't wait for Friday!

    Directed by Taika Waititi from a script written by Jon Favreau, the season finale episode “Chapter 8”: The Mandalorian comes face-to-face with an unexpected enemy.

    Sadly a quite weak episode this time around, although I realy want a speeder bike now!

    Alot of fan-service, but maybe a tad too much and zero story progression, but hey: we got a new character and of course a proper cliffhanger to go with it....

    I loved her episode and makes me excited for her series.

    I didn’t mind that last episode( love me some Ming-na )

    But I though it was meh that tatooine made an appearance.

    Some people are saying that they were sitting in the same bar as in Episode 4 but it appears to be too close to the door for that to me.

    I wonder who in the Star Wars universe wears spurs.

    i liked this week's episode. more character development for mando, a hilarious appearance from amy sedaris (was never expecting to see her in the star wars universe and i loved it), and more adorableness from baby yoda.

    jake cannavale was...fine? idunno, he seemed like he didn't fit into the world because of some of his acting choices; i would have liked to see dave franco in that role.

    and yes, that's definitely the cantina from episode IV. i thought it was cool to be on tattooine and see just how different it is now. it didn't feel like overt fan service, just a familiar location in a vast universe.

    OH and the sign language with the tusken raiders was amazing. that's the first time we've ever seen someone actually try to communicate with them instead of scaring them off or massacring them.

    read an article that said they used some unused shots from ANH to craft the shots in the show to make the OG Tattooine vibe.

    Good discussion on the latest episode here and pretty much agreed with their opening remarks.
