Mando, Season 2
« on: October 31, 2020, 08:21:44 AM »
Haven't seen a Mandalorian 2 thread yet, so I might as well get the ball rolling.

So, after watching the first season at least a half dozen times this year, and the companion Gallery series, I was sufficiently hyped for Season 2. And it started on a pretty solid note for me, anyway. So far, so good. The atrocious, almost George Lucas-grade direlogue is still there, but that's about as much criticism I've got. Can't wait for the rest of the season, and I can't wait to see how they do Asohka, whenever she appears.

I have one question that the show failed to answer, though: where are they getting all that wood on a desert planet?

What did everyone else think of it?

Better late than never.

Are you talking about the fires?  Banths poo is flamable.

I mean, yes, I'll grant you that. doesn't cover the wooden ballista they use later on, though. :wink:

My guess: Tatooine is so hot, it doesn't have polar ice caps, it has polar rainforests.

Chapter 10 fell a bit flat, I gotta say. Definitely had the smell of filler episode all over it.

My sentiments exactly. I think I actually said “pure filler” out loud when it ended without even a resolution to a silly side story. Let’s hope it doesn’t pick up where it left off next week!

Yeah. It was off to a good start (is Boba Fett kidnapping the Child?) but it just fell flat after. And somehow, those giant spiders were creepier in Rebels than they were in full scale. Something about the added detail just didn't translate well for me.

Oh well. Every show has to have some bad episodes every now and then. I wonder when they're going to start the multiple storylines that Favreau mentioned, though, and who they'll be splitting off with. I kinda figured this episode would have more of a focus on Fett.

Chapter 11's a win.

Next week should be fun, too.

Chapter 12 was okat, I thought. I figured we'd meet up with Ahsoka this episode, but I guess they're keeping Lady Tano for later. It was nice to see the old faces of last season again, even if, plot-wise, things were a little simple.

I gotta say, seeing all those Snoke-like clones floating in vats was a bit of a downer. I mean, I suppose Disney had to start integrating the ST into Mando at some point, but I hoped that would be way, way further down the line.

I am, however, secretly hoping those troopers Gideon is building are Dark Troopers being brought back into canon. Because if they're bringing them back, then logically, they'll bring back the only known antidote to Dark Troopers, Kyle Katarn.

A Jedi Knight fanboy can dream, right?  :wink:
