    Kara being from Alderaan was a great little nugget that fills in her backstory wonderfully.

    Wasn't Tycho from the XWing series from there?

    I’m a Star Wars fan but not quite to neck beard status. What’s the significance of the dark saber?

    Straight heat. Last two episodes absolutely knocked it out of the park and I’m so glad there’s gonna be a quick turnaround for next season

    I read where they were 15m an ep. 120 million for the season is a lot. Or do you think it was 15m for each act? I wonder if that increases with its success?

    It's kinda the cornerstone of D+ right now so I could believe they'd spend that.

    I can’t believe watching this shit costs half as much as seeing TROS. Give me more Favreau and Taika, please.

    As an aside, now with D+ I think I’m going to watch the animated Star Wars stuff. In light of the mandalorian, should I watch rebels or chronological clone wars first? I suppose the goal is be ready for clone wars final season in February but they’re pretty quick watches right?

    Clone Wars first. Yes, they are short, quick episodes but theres like 130 of them.

    You should watch Clone Wars before Rebels, but given this episode should definitely watch Rebels before S2 of the Mandalorian

    Rule of thumb for clone wars is to skip any episode mentioning jar jar or featuring droids

    and s1 is mediocre

    Amazing episode and season. Gonna go re-watch all the Mandalore episodes of Clone Wars and Rebels again.

    Can't wait for the Siege of Mandalore episodes of Clone Wars next year.

    Favreau and Filoni should have more control over creative decisions of all things SW going forward and not give hacks like JJ free reign.

    Same. First three and last two were great, the Seven Samurai one as fine, but the Tattooine one and the Bill Burr one arent worth revisiting

    Great show. A couple of dud episodes this first season, but didn’t matter because the majority of the eight were awesome.

    Question:

    How are they not aware of the Jedi? They must have known or heard about Vader throughout the galaxy.

    The Jedi were all dead before most of the cast were out of childhood. And I'm sure a lot of Manda-lore (laps taken) was lost during the purge. Even before that the Jedi were pretty isolated to Corascant except during the Clone Wars.

    Baby Yoda was deaigned to be a viral marketing ploy for Disney+

    Mando is just the most expensive viral marketing project in history.

    To put this in further context, one of the flag officers on the first Death Star talks shit about the Force to Darth Vader’s face

    Agree with this though it highlights an error with the prequels. It seems like ep1-3 made the Jedi a much bigger order and much more important, galactically, than the ep4-6 hinted. Mando is more of a continuation of that notion than the prequels' idea
     
  41. WhiskeyDelta

    WhiskeyDelta Formerly MK3rds

    I think the prequels give a slanted account of that, since you're dealing with the ruling elite on the capital planet where the counsel was located. Even in the PT there were maybe a few hundred Jedi, which in a galaxy of thousands of inhabited worlds and untold billions of citizens makes it believable some randos in the boonies wouldn't know what they are.

    True but the Jedi were made generals of the clone wars and scattered across the galaxy between ep2 and 3.

    But you're right that randos wouldn't know about them. I think that's overall believable here.

    For the most part, the guys they were fighting with were clones and the guys they were fighting against were droids. That’s a pretty good recipe for the Jedi being more of a legend than a history.

    5 and 6 were great adventure of the week episodes. They don’t really work in 2019 when every episode needs to advance the overall plot, but they weren’t bad television.

    My guess is 5 and 6 will have delayed payoffs between the person at the end of 5 and the new republic’s involvement in 6

    there’s no reason to skip them just because they may not have been vital to the story arc of this season. give me a break.
