The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda returns this week for a new season of misadventures. Love it? Hate it? Let’s talk about it some more.
I’ll be hosting another after show on the series after new episodes air (more difficult for recording purposes but whatever) but to catch up on my thoughts, here is a review and discussion on every episode of The Mandalorian Season 1Continue reading “The Mandalorian Season 1 Recap Reviews of Every Episode”
Star Wars! Who doesn’t love the Star Wars? I love the Star Wars. As much as I’d enjoy Star Peace, I continue having fun with retrospective podcast series that cover the vast breadth of Star Wars entertainment. I think The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi both stand tall alongside the best of the series. I loved Rogue One. I didn’t hate Solo. Sadly, the Star Wars lovefest must come to an end. The Mandalorian isn’t a lost cause after the first episode but I won’t be holding my breath much longer either. But who knows? This weekly show will be covering all Mando-lore (heh) and host many guests, reviews and discussions on the series. It would be great if I did a total 180 on this. Check out the podcast episode links below to see where I’m coming from.
Personally? I’m tired of trying to cram the ever-expansive mythology of Star Wars into the confines of westerns, war films and traditional American myth-making. No chagrin towards the new films, which I have enjoyed or flat-out adored, but I yearn for the emphasis on “fantasy” in space that hasn’t been fully fledged since the prequel trilogy. However, if it needs to continue down that Western path… The Mandalorian looks like it’s got its heart and head in the right place.
Directed by Jon Favreau, Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow and Dave Filoni (in his live-action directorial debut), The Mandalorian debuts November 12, 2019 on Disney+
“Oof” – not a quote from the show, just me watching it.
