The Last Jedi was objectively trash. Chadalorians unite.

Back to the actual topic:

Though I think the overall average episode quality was stronger than that of Season 1, I'm disappointed that what started off as a flawed but promising standalone story has, like everything else, been bogged down by cameos out of some obligation to tie everything to a larger narrative. I'm fine with stuff like Bo-Katan and Boba Fett given their ties to the Mandalorians, and even Ahsoka to an extent, but it grew tiresome seeing Mando run into all of these beloved characters almost every episode, and I think this came at the cost of the season's overarching plot. The final cameo was a bit too far for me, especially with the horrible Rogue One CGI. At the very least, the cameos weren't quite as egregious as the Ponda Baba and Darth Vader scenes in that film and the cameo characters actually did fill a role in the plot. I just wish they had been handled better.

Best episode by far was the penultimate one. It felt like everything Rogue One was trying to do but with actual entertainment value, and was one of the few episodes set in a location that wasn't just some brown or grey Mos Eisley-esque town. Worst episode was definitely the second one with the frog lady. The joke with Baby Yoda eating the eggs really wasn't thought out that well.

So yeah, despite my criticisms, overall it's alright. Still wish Mando would go to some more interesting looking planets and I hope they tone down the cameos next season, but a solid 7/10 I guess. The general premise of the show isn't really to my tastes anyway, though I'm sure I won't be seething about it in 3 years' time.

>it's a "sequel virgin gets overly defensive about the fact that Rian Johnson can't write to save himself" episode.

Chad Favreau will be delivering your next batch of copium.

Mate you're the one who brought up the sequels twice before anyone else responded. Not my fault you're incapable of any kind of critical thought beyond "stop liking what I don't like".

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.

Maybe it's just my cynicism, but I find the 50 year old "kid" aka the klepto toddler a completely insufferable character that they're no doubt shoving as hard as they can to sell toys.

I disagree that he's insufferable. On paper, he sounds like a cutesy character that would get annoying but in my experience they never pushed him too much within the show itself.
Spoiler
I'm pleasantly surprised they had the balls to largely write him out of the series at the end of S2.
Pushing him hard merchandising-wise? Sure, but in terms of the show itself it never got to a point that it bothered me, and I was actively concerned about that.

You might not've been able to dodge it. I don't even watch the show and I knew he showed up at the end of the season. Youtube algo spammed my feed with it the moment I watched a single clip.

I’m just highly satisfied knowing that Disney is bringing in SOME measure of EU stuff to the table. I know Thrawn was in Rebels, but the acknowledgment of Imperial Warlords like Gideon means we might just happen to get Pallaeon at some point.

Pallaeon has already been made canon. He's a captain in Thrawn's fleet.

Excuse me, I'm full of dog poison

I found it extraordinarily distracting, really wish they would stop with the cgi and just pay a lookalike.
