So people are not to like a first episode and enjoy another one? It's still just an average show, wouldn't even put it in the top 5 of 2019 at the moment.

If you look at the reason why they were attacking it.... people can't enjoy things without this ****

Attacking it? Those first episodes were pretty boring, nothing really happens, the story is very simple. It's probably time for me to accept that Star Wars is aimed sure kids and the magic of the originals won't happen again.

Is it because the lead character is not a strong women? Like Batwoman, The Good Wife, Veep, Scandal, Revenge, Law And Order SVU, Madam Secretary etc etc because there are simply not enough shows with strong women these days.

The mandalorian could take of his mask and be Kaitlin Jenner underneath and people would still not be happy.

Nah, its the "progressive" nutters screaming "there is no women in the 1st episode" (which is not true) screaming people who like it are sexist then screaming because she didn't have a speaking when line when they got called out then played the victim.

Its getting like a disease infecting all forms of entertainment and twitter is patient zero it seems

You could look at it like this, everyone has a voice, everyone like watching stuff, everyone wants to see something they can relate to.

No matter what you do there will be internet outrage. Have you seen Watchmen, would you call those people complaining conservative nutters?

Episode 4 (directed by Bryce Dallas Howard):

Well, if you ever wondered what a Star Wars version of The Magnificent Seven would be like if there were only a Magnificent Two & the bad guy had an
This is for you.

Some solid action, a tiny bit more backstory & Gina Carano guest starring. Great fun.

The score is growing on me weekly & I have to say I absolutely adore the production art-style end credits for this show.

Some absolutely terrible tactics used by the enemy, like no thought went into battle.

At least the feminists should be happy with this episode plenty of tough girl action

Baby Yoda overload this week, this guy is sure to get his own show

Has any sci-fi series not done a peasants/workers fighting back episode.

From my own recollection

Star Trek Enterprise did
Clone Wars did
Original BSG did


Seriously though Ewoks developed anti
tactics and they are bears.

Don't like this tracking fob plot device seems to one of the greatest McGuffins in star wars. What does it key on? why has Mando no counter measure for it.

nah they will never be happy (not that they actually feminists or believe in equality) I think they are "triggered" because the show is called MANdalorian

That was a stinker of an episode. Felt more a horrible Star Trek Next Gen episode than Star Wars.

Total filler rubbish until the last 3 minutes. Worrying when there is such a short amount of episodes.

Not dull but first time it felt like telly to me, being a proper filler episode. Doing an A-Team, shame they didn't have a shed full of parts to help them against the attacking force.

Regardless of the episode's quality. Something I noticed in the fight between Gina and Pascal. How can he be knocked out by punching him in the in the helmet? The same could be said in Civil War where cap and Co are hitting Iron man in the armored face in caps case with ordinary flesh and bone hands.

Still there are the articles claiming we men are on the hate path against women again

Most blokes can be knocked out if you punch them hard enough in the helmet

If the punch is hard enough, you'd still get concussion ?

More annoying for me is that often, in films/tv generally, the accompanying sound of the punch is exactly the same, no matter which body part or clothing it lands on !

Better episode this week, after last week’s limp A-Team effort. The writing/plot was a little better, probably due to someone other than Favreu on writing duties...
