I genuinely believe this series was supposed to star Boba Fett, but then somebody pointed out that he wasn't a Mandalorian, and instead of coming up with a different name they just said, "Fuck it, make up a new character who is literally Boba Fett but is actually from Mandalore."
hes not from mandalore tho bruh DID YOU EVEN PAY ATTENTION TO THE LORE

Actually quite relieved to hear this isn't going to be a super-serious borefest, that was the impression I got from the trailers. Still not sure if I'll be able to check it out. Even if Disney+ was available in the UK there's no way I'd pay for it.

I love you, son.
Finally watched it on Disney+, the final episode released yesterday.

Overall, it was... okay. The middle episodes really fell flat for me, and the show as a whole just felt kinda bland and grey. Every planet Disney's The Mandalorian lands on feels more or less the same as the last one he visited, and the side characters are a bit hit-or-miss. That said the last episode was really good.

I guess I'd give the whole season a 7/10? It's fine?

I think combined Star Wars Legends and Canon,Mandalorian is definitely top 5 material for me. Super excited for S2.

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.
Only thing that bothered me about the show is how they didn't set up that mandalorians were so vulnerable, when all the mandalorian helmets were piled up at the end of the series it didn't seem believable. When Mando left, it looked like they were doing great in the fight and were primed to leave shortly afterwards. Just seemed odd

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

I disagree. When Mando escapes with the child in Episode 3, his hesitation to leave is because of the insane danger they put themselves in to help him. The scene is explicitly framed as brave/heroic of them, which wouldn't be true if this wasn't a big deal.

The issue was never that specific battle they flew out for, it's that this is an operating location of the Bounty Hunters' Guild and people are hostile towards Mandalorians. This is supported by the fact that Mando states they'll have to move the Covert because of this, and the helmets being piled up in the Covert shows that they weren't able to escape fast enough.

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
I liked it. Definitely echo Fedorekd's sentiment that the middle segment dragged a tad, but a really solid show.

I would have liked to see a bit more development and revelation on the child and what it is considering the whole show is centred around him/her/it, but it's basically just used as something to accelerate the plot. Guess that's being reserved for season 2.

Also my boy Werner Herzog was done dirty. Get a mid tier actor if you're gonna kill him after 10 minutes of screen time.

Fight scenes and choreography is definitely where the show excels however.

7.5/10
