The Mandalorian is the best Star Wars in 40 years

SDS

You can’t prove me wrong. Holy [censored] what a season 2 finale.

SDS

I only started the series yesterday and I'm already hooked.

SDS

Love it, one of my favourite parts of the series is jason sudekis in the season 1 finale

SDS

Considering the best stuff is re-using characters from 40 years ago, that makes sense.

Granted the newer Star Wars attempts are mostly garbage, but at least they were trying different stories and character arcs out.

Now it's just fan service nostalgia that gets all us old folk teary eyed. Oh look, Yoda! Oh look, Luke! Member Boba? I member them!

SDS

I like the series, but after watching two episodes of the new season, have to ask.., is the rest more original? The first episode of season 2 owes royalties to Dune (and/or Tremors), the second episode was basically the original Alien on eight legs...c’mon, Favreau, try a little harder, will you?

SDS

Great series.

KEEP WATCHING.

I totally agree...I actually teared up the moment I saw the X-Wing. I just knew at that moment what would follow & I was SO HAPPY.

I think it’s fine to have little cameos like that, but I don’t think that’s really a highlight of the show/series. There are easily 50 moments that are actually great for the series and SW universe.

SDS

As an 80's kid, this SW franchise is a big part of my generation's culture. The sequel trash, ripped our hearts out, mocked and killed our heroes, perverted our stories, and basically took away a part of who we were...

Thank you Filoni and Favreau for caring, redeeming the og characters, listening to Lucas, and giving us true Star Wars fans what we wanted! All is well in the universe. LOL

My eyes were more than a little moist at the end. I 100% did not see that coming.

The bike troopers firing and missing that can from like 3 feet away and then missing IG from point blank? Sorry man for enjoying a funny moment in the series.

Good lord this is why Star Wars fans are the worst

You said “jason sudekis in the season 1 finale” was one of your favorite moments. In the entire series, having a celebrity cameo for all of 2 minutes, with the guy in a stormtrooper suit doing essentially comedic bits should be a foot note in the series, not a highlight.

And with your proclamation that “Star Wars fans are the worst”, you don’t appear to recognize yourself as a fan.

I have nothing against liking an actor and enjoying what they do (I think sudekis is great, enjoy his comedic presence, love the stuff he does with Bateman), but his presence is not especially poignant as it relates to the entire series.

Sort of like how Boba was a footnote in the original trilogy? 🤣

Maybe 40 years from now, that trooper gets his own spinoff series...

Alright man! You win! Great Job defending the honour of Star Wars by letting me know that a comedic moment can't be a favourite moment of anything! Enjoy the dub tonight!

I’m glad they did right by Luke. In the novels that came out in the 90’s which Disney declared no longer canon, Luke basically becomes the most powerful Jedi to ever live!! I’m glad they showed us some of that! Now bring on Sebastian Stan as Luke to bring us more!!

I could see them using season 3 with Luke having a computer generated face the whole time. People will be ok with that as long as he is in it. 🙂

WHAT IF: Luke teaches Mando the ways of the Force!! (Just a wild idea) lol
