    So it’s basically 3 separate acts, 3 episodes a piece? I might try to wait 3 weeks and watch the next act all at once.

    How long do we need to spoiler tag?

    Something I caught but was unsure about

    where did he say they had to relocate to? It sounded like another planet/system? Does that new planet have prior SW universe significance?

    I enjoyed the other bounty hunter saying "ee-chu-ta" (another 3p0 unit said it to Threepio in Empire) to Mando.

    Going through that room John Wick style was one of the coolest scenes I have ever seen in Star Wars. Just electric from start to finish. We have a winner here.

    Was sweet to see Mando beat some empire ass. I liked the details they added with the beat up stormtrooper armor and their old guns that keep jamming.

    They’ve done a good job of mixing in just a little bit of the campy humor too.

    I now look forward to Fridays the same way I looked forward to Saturday morning cartoons.

    The concept art during the credits is low key one of my favorite parts of the show. From the tone, score, minimalist dialogue, etc I adore how much of a Western it is.

    Okay 4th episode. It was very much a live action Clone Wars which I’m okay with.

    I’d let Gina Carano perform a variety of physical moves on me.

    It didn’t bother me too much but I bet a lot of people are gonna bitch about the dialogue in this episode.

    It was very colloquial. Not very SW and more casual American speak.

    Yes he did

    I was thinking maybe his ship itself is being tracked but I guess not if his ship is far away from the village. I'm not sure how those trackers work.

    Thought the episode was okay. Very clearly a reset with this being the start of act 2

    Act 1 brings Mando and Yoda Jr together

    Act 2 puts them on the run

    Act 3 (typcially) is when the showdown happens


    Had a very by the numbers plot. I thought the red eyes on the ATST was spooky in the night scenes. Although I laughed when they said "one of those can take out a company of soldiers"

    All I could think was "I've seen a gaggle of Ewoks take out a company of ATSTs."

    All they needed was some rope and a couple logs..

    I thought it was salvaged crap leftover from the past battles fought on the planet. It seemed like at some point he mentioned past wars touching the planet when looking for a place he could lie low at.

    Weakest episode by far for me but the LBY was redeeming as always, Carano was good, Mando had some nice but a little too truncated character development.

    It’s hard for me to grade individual episodes because it seems pretty clear that it’s intended viewing is by its 3 distinct acts.

    I did not like that fourth episode.

    Many elements just didn’t flow well for me.

    The background score at times felt like I was watching a Hallmark movie, with the little acoustic guitar playing? Horrible.

    I even thought some of the writing was subpar, especially in comparison to previous episodes.

    for sure. But for me was just the first one where the drama felt a little manufactured and I found myself drifting in and out of attention
