They could be saving money on these episodes to spend later

The "Feige" role should be this combination of Filoni and Favreau.

Very, very well done first episode. I've got no problem with them continuing to lean into Western themes. Opening scene at the fight club was very well done. Happy that the returned to Tatooine. Story and action were both top notch. And Olyphant doing his Raylan Givens thing always works. And they didn't use The Child as a crutch or Deus Ex Machina.

It was fucking awesome to finally see Krayt Dragon, after reading so much about them in the expanded universe stuff that I got into. All of its appearances, especially the big battle at the end, were damn near perfectly executed.

As for the "reveal" at the end, I know the obvious answer is its Boba Fett (give than the armor is clearly is his), but I'm kind of hoping that it's just another clone. Be it Captain Rex or some other rando.

Happily all in for the season.

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

But what's really great is that they took the storyline from Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy where he created Cobb Vanth and his back story finding the armour. Great that we get him in live action. Interesting to see where they go with Boba but at least this creates a reason now for more story on him rather than the rumours before it just didn't make sense to see more of him. This def creates reasonable interest to see it unfold. I love that now the actor is back for this that we can also play Rex if they ever choose to bring him into the show or another.

The flying! This looked much better than it did in seaoson 1. Looked more natural this time around. That whole fight scene was crazy. Nothing to complain about.

How about that easter egg of Cobb riding alongside Mando on his man made speeder built out of 1 engine of Anakin's speed racer pod!!!! fuck yeah.

>Interesting to see where they go with Boba but

Absolutely. There’s a great story waiting to happen here. Obviously Boba is going to want to go after Din to get his armor back. Whether he gives it back or not (and how) is going to depend on how Din views Boba as being Mandalorian. And they seems to be the overall major theme of this show - what is a “true” Mandalorian. Honestly the way Cobb Vanth was played in this espisode I’m wondering if Din doesn’t end up giving the armor back to him. He was using it to protect others, and fought/negotiated with honor. Once Din meets other Mandalorians from other clans like Sabine who are fine with taking off their helmets, maybe he starts to question his own view of being a Mandalorian as too narrow.

Which brings us back to Boba Fett. I’d imagine that in this story we finally get clarification on whether Jango Fett was actually a Mandalorian or if Almec from the Clone Wars was correct about him being someone “just wearing the armor”. That being said, I hope we don’t get TOO much info on Boba. I like him still having some mystery...

The krayt dragon lived in an abandoned sarlacc pit and the marshall said he’d eaten the sarlac. Given that it takes 1000 years for the sarlac to digest something Boba was still alive in there when the krayt dragon ate it, and Boba was able to escape during the chaos.

Boba also had Sandpeople weapons in that reveal at the end, so he may have been even living among them.

There was one sand person who was sitting away just looking at Mando when he was sittting with them talking. Didnt notice it at first but that would be cool if Boba was right in front of Mando the whole time. I did think it was weird the amount of interaction they showed im those montages of Mando communicating with the sand people.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

Wish this would've been the Halloween episode. And it was directed by Peyton Reed which was a huge plus.

The Child will eat anything even to his own detriment. Also, enjoy Dave Filoni coming back.

I still have a bit of arachniphobia, I decided to watch this episode at 4 am before heading off to work. In the dark no less, I spent the rest of the day with my skin crawling and flicking imaginary shit off me.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

like it's to the point where I can't even look at them on tv. i watch nature documentaries with remote in hand just in case there is a part where there is a spider lol.

that being said I didn't completely bitch out this episode. I think it's cause the spiders didn't have realistic faces.

overall great episode. Mando might be my favorite right now. I love the western stuff too

Loved this episode. I'm sure it adds to the story in a way most people don't see right now, especially when it looks like the frog lady creature is in another episode if you look at the main trailer for the season.

I was thinking that the child eating those eggs will come back and he'll actually have had saved them in case something happens to the rest of the frog lady's eggs. But now I'm thinking that Lil kid is bad and just eats whatever he thinks tastes good.

27. "Question: Should Filoni be the one to write the next series of SW Films?"
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

I'm still of the standpoint that Filoni should've been the one to write and possibly direct the last three films.

At this point, Disney has to see that he and JF have what it takes to make continue the franchise and take it in a new direction while giving hardcore fans what they want.

In response to Reply # 27


  

          

The Mandalorian scripts are give or take especially when you have a character who speaks as minimally as possible but if he should write whatever story the next trilogy is based on and go from there. He has probably thought more about Star Wars than anyone outside of Young Lucas and having someone so committed to the canon will prevent directors and writers from cutting corners.

He should actually be writing any of the movies. He doesn’t have to write each script but he needs to be in charge of saying what happes in every show/movie. Final say on all things star wars

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

Relatively short and to the point, advanced the story and set up even more pieces. Great world building, character building, and action. I guess they're going to lean pretty hard into Clone Wars all season, which is fine, because they're making it understandable for anyone who hasn't seen it either.

Awesome half hour of TV.

31. "Going back to what I said earlier, this season and show is "
In response to Reply # 22


  

          

about him and the audience learning what it means to be a Mandalorian. We’re getting all these examples of different ways to be a Mandalorian - from last seasons group, to Din himself who has already somewhat changed from his upbringing in the convent, to Cobb Vanth in ep 1 who was wearing the armor and not even claiming to be Mandalorian, but earning Din’s respect (and I think that by the end of the season he’ll actually get that armor back), to Bo Katan’s group educating Din on the history hidden from him, potentially Sabine, Baby Yoda who is a foundling, and finally Boba Fett.

The end of this episode was big - with Bo Katan saying “this is the way” to Din and him responding in kind. He’s acknowledging that she is Mandalorian, ironically also acknowledging that there is more than one “way”.

I mean we saw him take his helmet off to eat in that one episode last season, but he’s gotta be on an EXTREME intermittent fasting regimen not wanting to take his helmet off. He had that entire trip in the cockpit with Frog Lady. Does he take it off when just with the kid? Did he have a little straw or something so he can drink food packets?

38. "Okay - prediction time..."
In response to Reply # 22
Sun Nov-15-20 12:10 PM by soulfunk

  

          

So at this point we know Din is headed to find Ahsoka. Likely won’t see her in the next episode - since that’s directed by Carl Weathers I’d guess that Chapter 12 will be about the journey to Ahsoka, and him picking up Greef and Cara on the way. Chapter 13 is directed by Filoni - so it would make sense that Ahsoka is in that one.

The interesting thing to me is the question of where Ahsoka and Sabine are in their quest to find Ezra at this point in the timeline. It wouldn’t have been long before this that they connected to start that quest(from the Rebels finale) because it was after Endor (ROTJ). So if Bo Katan knows her exact location, are they back from finding Ezra? Something like that wouldn’t be spoiled in a subplot of the Mandalorian, so my guess is we won’t see much of Ahsoka and Sabine here so that stays a mystery. Taking that guess a step further, Ahsoka will likely not take the Child and tell Din that he belongs with him (or give him a clue to the homeworld of the species) because they wouldn’t just separate Din and the child this early in the show.

There is no way the first full episode of Ahsoka is not directed by Filoni. I think he has said it himself in the past that for her to come to live action he would have to be doing it. At the most we get a reveal at the very end of the next episode where we all bust a nerd nut in unison. I’m going to assume they want to do a spin off show with her and Filoni will prob be in charge of it.

I agree on all of this Filoni, has to do the Ahsoka centric episode. The only way it would work, I mean she's his creation.

It would be interesting how they would handle this since at the end of Rebels *Spoiler Alert: Ezra was with Thrawn and I assume Thrawn went to Chiss space which is beyond the Outer Rim) I figure they slightly mention it or they set it up that Ashoka can't take the child because she and Sabine are prepping to go look for Ezra.


Taking that guess a step
>further, Ahsoka will likely not take the Child and tell Din
>that he belongs with him (or give him a clue to the homeworld

I doubt they do anything with the child for at least two more seasons. It seems like such an important element to the story that just dropping him off would seem off.

In response to Reply # 43


  

          

They should have left out to get Ezra around 5 years before this. The Mandalorian takes place 5 years after the Battle of Endor (ROTJ), and Ahsoka and Sabine left to find Ezra right after the Empire fell. So with around 4-5 years in between they definitely would have been gone, and if Bo Katan knows where Ahsoka is they must be back.

So that would mean, either they found Ezra or they didn't. Maybe she'll mention there was another but she couldn't find him or something. The fate of Ezra and Thrawn still bother me so much, I want to know what happened?

Did Thrawn just peace out on the whole empire thing and didn't link up with The First Order and took what he learned to the Chiss? Is Ezra there helping after understanding what the Chiss were trying to do since there are other dangers past the Outer Rim (no I'm not talking about the Y.V.)?

show so they don’t spoil what happened with Ezra or Thrawn. Like I mentioned above, just a short cameo which is a back door pilot to a show covering that search.

that the planets, sets, scenes feel like they are small because of shooting in the Volume? My best description would be it that it doesn't feel like every scene is shot in a diorama

The worlds do feel much bigger so far in every scene compared to the 1st (which IMO only felt like that in certain parts)

more from the volume after shooting the first season, and increased budget for special effects. The x-wing chase from the last episode and the almost crash landing from this one were straight up blockbuster film quality effects. And some of that stuff is completely separate from using the volume for set shooting...

Wow - one of my favorite episodes of this series so far. Carl Weathers did his thing directing this.

Random side note - I had to laugh that right after I was talking about Mando never eating we see him tilt his helmet up to slurp down some soup or something...

54. "More thoughts - this may be my favorite episode."
In response to Reply # 53


  

          

It really encompasses everything that defines this show. The plot of this episode is essentially a side quest that moves Mando forward in his overall mission. His quest is to get the Child to his kind. At this point he's on his was to take the Child to Ahsoka, but his ship needs to be repaired. Side quest!

But this episode takes that "side quest" vibe and is able to very successfully move the plot further in unexpected ways. We reconnect with Greef and Cara, we get some of the best worldbuilding of the series - more awareness of the status of both the Imperial remnants and the New Republic.

We get story callbacks from all over the first season, and also some nice possible foreshadowing of the future. Will Cara end up joining with the New Republic? Maybe the Resistance in the future? Now that the Empire is gone from Navaro, it's likely going to expand as a major trading post in the outer rim, with Greef in charge.

We continue to get absolutely amazing action scenes for a TV show. That speeder chase/tie chase/Razor Crest save was incredible - they just keep dishing out movie blockbuster level action and effects.

On top of ALL THIS, we also get major plot revelations regarding the big question from the first season - what does Gideon want with the Child. They perfectly integrated this into all of the action of the episode. We see Dr. Pershing's transmission talking about his midichlorian count (great world building to hear him call it "m-count" for short), Mando and the crew find out Moff Gideon is still alive, we see the failed experimental bodies in the tanks, we see Gideon with Dark Troopers or something, etc.

We're at the point in the season where we can REALLY see it building towards a huge climax - Gideon is tracking the Razor Crest and Mando is heading towards Ahsoka. but in addition to that we know that Bo-Katan is looking for Gideon to get the dark saber - Greef will want to be sure the Empire is completely gone, the New Republic may also get into the mix to get rid of Gideon (again showing how the spider episode was important - introducing us to Paul Sun-Hyung Lee's character and letting us know that some of those X-Wing pilots are cool and may help Mando), etc. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Mando ends up giving the Boba Fett armor back to Cobb Vanth so he also ends up helping in some way.

Last point, just a subtle example of how good of a job Carl Weathers did directing this. When Mando left his ship with Greef's crew to get repaired, the camera lingered on that one mechanic JUST the perfect amount of time. Got my attention that he may end up doing something shady, but was quick enough that I totally forgot about it until we saw him talking to Greef about the tracking device at the end. Just a beautiful setup for another setup into the next episode.

Weathers directed an excellent episode and we got some more insight into the story. The episodes just keep getting better and better honestly.

The world-building is classic Filoni stuff. He's doing what he did with Clone Wars and Rebels with this series and it shows that this can could build for multiple seasons.

Callbacks were perfect, but I want to know where the doctor was. Was he still on the planet? They just blew up the facility so did he go down with it?

The stuff with Cara Dune was nice and it opens up for them to write her character off, seeing all the backlash she's getting from the show fans for her MAGAtard tweets. I had the biggest crush on that woman and now I'm just looking at her like "you not securing ya bag with ya tweets."

Anyway, seeing that the New Republic is out there but seemingly those that are posted in the Outer Rim seem to be on their own helps explain how the First Order could rise. Not sure if the New Republic is spread thin or the Core just doesn't care cause Palpatine is dead and most of the Empire fell. But the description that the pilot gives, they just think it's scattered warlords or something paints the picture well.

Now Gideon is tracking Mando and the child, the next stop is Ashoka, so do we get an Ashoka vs Gideon stand-off? Does Mando find the tracking device in time or do we get a season-ender with all parties coming together for a big fight? I'm excited about what's next and I'm also totally fine with once-a-week episodes, it makes me relish the next one more.


So my thought is *Spoiler Alert* Moff is working on them Palpatine clones? He's a true believer in the First/Final Order and his work is to bring Palp's back. That's my only though.

Either Gideon is working for Palpatine and this is the beginning of the first/final order like you mentioned - that officer at the end talking to the mechanic said something like “you’ll be remembered in what is next to come which could have been shorthand for First Order. Also the officer from the last episode biting a suicide pill definitely had First Order cult vibes.

Or, Gideon is on his own trying to take power and build the next empire. His uniform looks like he’s trying to be a fake Vader. So maybe he wants to inject himself with force-sensitive blood to make himself the next Vader, with the darksaber as his weapon.

It's a bigger spectacle and that's cool, 2020 has been short on special effects and big set pieces. But the vibe has been more on the Tatooine episode/Bill Burr episode this season with some pretty shoddy on-foot choreography and Marvel-lite dialogue.

It's good popcorn TV but I'll always want more silent protagonist, clueless wandering like the first couple episodes rather than tie-ins to a cartoon and a (very good looking) paint by numbers chase sequence.

Also, Amy Sedaris and Gina Carano are doing what's being asked of them but man does it suck.

acting. It's fine in the action scenes, and of course her fight scenes specifically are great. But outside of that it's pretty bad. The scene when Mando landed and reunited with them and she was just walking around smiling was just terrible acting and took me out. It read like Gina was just smiling, happy to be on set and not Cara just smiling happy about Mando being back and showing off the progress of the planet...

That's the pattern on other TV sci-fi shows. They're be 4 episodes of Battlestar Galactica with very little big action - and then 1 with a CRAZY amount.

Like they had $20 million to spend on 5 episodes, so they did $2 million for 4 of them, and then $12 million for the last.

It's that I didn't expect this show to be the vehicle to explain how Rey could revive Ren, or wrap up loose ends from a cartoon that already ran 7 seasons, or explain where Snoke came from.


I'm not, like, mad about it, but the show was cooler when Mando had a five word limit and it was a more personal journey. I was excited for a Star Wars thing that was lowkey and small-time, but I guess Disney can't help themselves and judging by the response here and elsewhere on the rest of the net they're doing the right thing...it's just not what I got excited about, and that's fine.

While still being its own thing is quite the accomplishment. Being disappointed bu your own expectations is a diff convo. Filoni and Fav are showing why and where this franchise needs to go while still innovating and being its own thing. Yea even with “fan service” call backs. Sorry but you can't just ignore the history of the property and do something entirely different to keep the franchise going. That would be terrible.

In response to Reply # 72

The more this show pivots to "what's up with GROGU" the emptier its calories get for me.


Chapter 13 was the best looking episode of this series yet but it seems pretty clear to me at this point that the title character of this show is just supposed to be a kind of viewer avatar for all this background stuff from the Skywalker story. But from the moment GROGU showed up, I hoped that'd be a couple episode arc at best. Narrative wise it's been diminishing returns for me ever since Mandalorian did the thing every character ever in this position does and goes back for the kid rather than the more interesting, unique thing and left it behind after finishing his mission.

Edit: To be totally clear though, I think Andy Greenwald put it perfectly last week in his recap when he followed a bunch of confusion and nitpicks about the show with "but the beauty of this show is I don't care, it's entertaining and I just don't care". It kinda sucks that Star Wars gave up on being a unique, actually interesting piece of television but it's also totally cool that it rejected prestige in favor of popcorn and silly Star Wars bullshit. I'm the guy that walked out of Rise of Skywalker feeling weirdly pleased because it thrashed the franchise so thoroughly it was astonishing and kind of an accidental masterpiece of trash. And now I'm fully freed from caring about Star Wars being capable of doing anything other than killing time between waking up and nodding off with stellar sound design and neat costumes.

I'd be disappointed myself if this show turns into explaining where Snoke/Palpatine came from. I posted above that it could end up being connected in some way to the First Order, or it could end up being that Moff Gideon is on his own and trying to be the next Vader. The more I think of it, the more the latter is likely.

At this point in the timeline, the Imperial remnant that ended up becoming the First Order had already assembled after the Battle of Jakuu in the Unknown Regions. If Gideon is still out here in the Outer Rim though, he's not in that group and is more likely on his own trying to amass power.

I also don't think "tying up loose ends" from the Clone Wars will be a big focus at ALL here. But the Mandalorian angle is absolutely connected to Mando's story, and him finding out both who he is and what being a Mandalorian means seems to be the overall focus of the story.

If done right, the connections will work to make the Star Wars universe feel more expansive and "real". If done wrong, they make the universe seem more small. But judging how Filoni has handled connected story elements in the past I trust him.

76. "Wow...this was so well done. "
In response to Reply # 74


  

          

A lot to talk about. i don't even know where to start. But I'll say this - I was VERY impressed that they actually managed to recreate Ahsoka's unique fighting style in live action. Everything to her form and style with the lightsabers, to the athletic moves jumping off the walls was all so perfectly done.

That boss fight with her and the magistrate reminded me so much of the last fight in Kill Bill 1 because of the peaceful garden setting.

There are so many questions I have. I mentioned earlier that I expected this to be a backdoor pilot for Ahsoka and the search for Ezra. With the reveal at the end that she is still looking for Thrawn, lets. think about what that means. We are 4 or 5 years after Ahsoka and Sabine left looking for Ezra. If at this point she is looking for Thrawn, not in the unknown regions, I'd think that indicates that she found them both and at least Thrawn returned in some way - because if the magistrate knew his location it wouldn't make sense that he was still missing from the Rebels finale.

Which means there are two stories to be told - the search for Ezra after ROTJ, and this search for Thrawn from now going forward. Notice the magistrate mentioned Mandalorians and Jedi being longtime enemies. (Side note, very interesting that she knows more about this part of Mandalorian history than Mando or even the armorer.) If she thought reminding him that Ahsoka should be his enemy would work, she must have not seen Ahsoka working with Sabine. So where is Sabine at this point? And where is Ezra? Is Ahsoka looking for Thrawn for revenge, or to find them? So many questions...

...in my wheelhouse. Very well done and beautifully shot. Also happy Michael Biehn is getting some work, though he looks like he's done some hard living. And it was the right time to start revealng Grogo's back story.

Also, fuck yeah @ Thrawn. The Heir to the Empire series was central to my upbringing, and even though it's not cannon anymore, I still want to see the character. I will note that I'm completely unfamiliar with his appearances in "Rebels," but I doubt that will effect me. Regardless, I'm more excited for this episode as a backdoor pilot than a potential Cara Dune show.

Dawson was excellent as Ashoka. It felt like a Clone Wars episode, to be honest, and it would make sense that it did with Filoni directing it. I enjoyed every moment.










*Spoiler*
My only gripe, Why did Michael Bien have to go? I wanted that character to come back later. I'd like for a reoccurring antagonist or two to come back in future episodes.

In response to Reply # 74


  

          

For Ahsoka to be ending the episode all happy and content, she must have gotten the info she wanted on Thrawn. But the entire village was also happy, with the prisoners freed and that one dude out back in charge. So did Ahsoka get the information and somehow get her to leave? Did she go dark and kill her anyways? Did the magistrate kill herself? We probably won’t get an answer unless there is an Ahsoka series that goes into her quest.

89. "either locked up or dead"
In response to Reply # 87


  

          

more than likely locked up. I don't think Ashoka would just let her leave, she was still a rich and powerful person so she'd just come back and I'm sure Ashoka wouldn't just murder her after getting the information she wanted.

“How was Jon Favreau not appointed the Kevin Feige of Star Wars?”

The difference in quality between even Episode 13 and the Disney trilogy just confounds the mind.

81. "The "Feige" role should be this combination of Filoni and Favreau."
In response to Reply # 80


  

          

I don't even know if Favreau would want to have the role of being over everything Star Wars. But what makes the Mandalorian special IMO is the combination of Filoni's knowledge of SW and storywriting along with Favreau's knowledge of filmmaking.

84. "Yeah I doubt Fav wants to put all his energy into Star Wars"
In response to Reply # 81


  

          

I really think Fav is there to mentor Filoni on his filmmaking skills. Although I agree that it might be better with both of them taking on that job which would allow Fav to do his other projects by offloading some of the work to Filoni when needed.

There’s just a stunning difference between the quality of Mandalorian and the Kylie Ren series

In response to Reply # 0


          

...its just so damn satisfying on all fronts...half the time i catch myself with an odd grin on my face as im watching it. i love it...just absolutely & totally LOVE it...the right balance of EVERYTHING i love about the StarWars universe...makes a 50+ year old re-experience the 'wonder & awe' that he felt when seeing episode IV in theaters back in 77...

After the latest episode, we've decided that when this 2nd season is over we're gonna go watch the animated CloneWars series too...

We keep saying it every week, Filoni and JF don't let us down. Now just give them the keys.

The way they're making EU stuff canon left and right, these guys got it.

Also, I just want to say that I called it.

97. "These last two episodes are gonna be huge. "
In response to Reply # 95


  

          

The squad he’s putting together to go get Grogu is about to be incredible. We know he’ll have Boba, Fennec Shand, Cara, and Bill Burr’s character. I definitely expect Bo-Katan to show up with her Manadalorian crew since she’s also hinting Gideon for the dark saber. So right off the rip you have three different variations of elite Mandalorians with Din, Bo-Katan, and Boba Fett.

In addition to that, does Ahsoka come to help? What about the Jedi that Grogu was able to reach out to? Honistly Grogu himself will be a force to be reckoned with the way he was throwing those Stormtroopers around...

The way they brought Boba Fett back was straight up genius. And explaining/reconciling his backstory within a couple lines of dialogue. (For my Clone Wars peeps now we know Almec was a lying bastard.)

I have a feeling we won't see Boba Fett after the season finale. I could see him dying and passing the Slave 1 down to the Mando. That or he joins Ashoka on her quest to find Thrawn.

98. "I've had my fair share of issues with the show but"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

this season has way more hit than miss and these last two episodes have been especially fantastic.

That was also the best thing Robert Rodriguez has done in like 20 years. He's kind of perfect for this level of filmmaking this kind of film/TV hybrid. He brings an energy and verve to the action scenes in this episode that works perfectly here but he's failed to do in any of his films post-Desperado. This is like the perfect-size sandbox for him and he's constrained from cutting corners by it being a Star Wars property.

I appreciated the Boetticher-vibe of the locale. Boba Fett's reintroduction was perfect. That was, in my mind, the best action sequence in the show and they've had some great ones this season.

I'm an old school Star Wars fan so I know fuck-all about any of the expanded mythology they're playing with so I don't get the same sense of joy that some of the other folks here get from seeing characters from Clones/Rebels realized and tied in. But what I DO get from this show that none of the recent Star Wars films (with the exception of Rogue One) have done is give the universe a sense of scale and life. My favorite thing is it knows when to shut up and slow down and give us small, quiet moments to marvel at the worlds, the characters and the little details.

I'm looking forward to rewatching these last two episodes again as much as I am looking forward to final two episodes. I also think they're on track for an absolutely killer third season.

100. "Haven’t watched the last ep but my coworker knows all this shit"
In response to Reply # 98


          

I was mad when he didnt see the last few episodes so i couldnt discuss witj him but when he finally watched them he went full SW nerd on me.

The name Thrawn didn’t move me at all but he knows all that clone war old school spin off shit from the 90’s books.

One thing he hated about SW trilogies is the tellinof the same damn story a million diff ways. Death Star!!!!

I think this is why I loved Rogue One so much. You can really go anywhere with some of these characters stories while also referencing the larger story arch. Which makes it much more enjoyable IMO.

I really hope Disney keeps this momentum and does it with other characters.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

101. "Agreed"
In response to Reply # 100


  

          

Ha, Thrawn is the one name I do know because I actually read some of the EU books back when I was a young bol. I don't remember much but I was like "Oh shit, I know that name!"

But I legit had no idea who Bo-Katan was. I don't even think I knew she was from the animated shows until after the episode.

I agree about Rogue One, which I loved when I saw it in theaters. I've liked it less on subsequent viewings but that's largely because of some of the seams start showing.

But it definitely injected some much needed freshness into the universe and expanded things making the universe feel large and lived in with an endless well of stories to tell.

I was actually tempted to start watching Clone Wars and Rebels to get a better understanding of what's going on but I just can't truck w/ the animation style.

Hope you enjoy this most recent episode as me and everyone else here

Got one of my boys watching Clone Wars right now and it's clearing up so much stuff from this show. I can't wait til he gets on to rebels.

But Filoni did what others couldn't he can tell stories outside of the main narrative of SW and not recycle the same stuff over and over. He's doing it here. Give him the keys!

In response to Reply # 106


  

          

in order. There are a bunch of lists out there about essential episodes to watch. The animation (and overall feel) got MUCH MUCH better after season 1 and by season 3 was really top notch.

If you watch the Mandalore/Darth Maul/Savage Opress story arc that would be great backstory for Mandalorian and might hook you on going back to watch the rest of the Clone Wars.
