Personally I love how the show isn't afraid to roll out one Western story after another using a natural-feeling Star Wars universe as a backdrop. I'd agree with the lite take but I also think it's incredibly accomplished and confident.

It occurred to me today, all the spin off movies and was always annoyed they didn't use the star wars theme. You've got one of the best theme tunes of all time so you should use it, your not going to write any better. However with the Mandolorian I have not missed it as the Mandalorian theme fits perfectly. Another fave of this production is the use of production art for the end credits. It's a classy product production wise, writing not so sure of sometimes.

I didn't recognise him! I knew I knew the voice, but it didn't click until I saw the credits.

I wrote about this yesterday, its been online for two weeks and no one noticed.

https://theunheardnerd.com/an-episod...rs-has-leaked/

In a nutshell, 3x6 minute episodes per show. Star Wars characters facing everyday problems. Set in-between episodes 3 and 4 on Tatooine, Coruscant and the Death Star, so it covers all six films at that point (2013). 39 episodes created with scripts for another 69.

Disney then buys Lucasfilm. They decide that this isn't the way they want people to see Star Wars with a new trilogy coming and the entire show is shelved.

Trailers and a few clips were released online at the time but this leak is a complete 6minute episode that has some good jokes including a dig at Indiana Jones.

I spotted the voice first but honestly couldn't tell just by looking at him. Oh, and Ahsoka Tano?

I thought Rosario Dawson's costume was terrible. It looked more like a cosplay version of a cartoon character than a proper being.

Said before and say again, this is the Star Wars I loved. This is the Star Wars I played with my figures 35 years ago.

Brilliant

It really is so so so good.

It makes a mockery of pretty much everything since the original trilogy mind. How can so many people get it so wrong?

As a non Star Wars geek, I thought the previous episode was better. I didn't even know who that bloke was until he said his name.

There was something incredibly visceral and satisfying with the way Boba Fett's knocking stick smashed that stormtrooper armour.

Tut, tut, tut. The Empire has gone to pot since Vader checked out. Their recruitment is awful.

“Only imperial stormtroopers are so accurate,” said Obi-wan after the Jawas attack. I must have missed the bit where he said, “but don’t worry, because soon they won’t be able to hit a cow’s arse with a banjo, and they’ll lineup nicely so one bloke with a stick can take them out like he was shelling peas.”

Nice episode though.
