A punch hard enough to do that through an armored helmet would surely break ones little fleshy covered hands. Gina's seemed perfectly fine.

Really? I thought it was as weak. It’s starting to feel like an 80s early Saturday evening kids show. This was meant to be a hard hitting serious side to Star Wars. Add in that the budget seems to be vastly smaller than needed to make this feel right and you end up with Star Wars Knight Rider.

The call backs this week we’re borderline ridiculous as well. I thought someone was going to wink at the camera at one stage. Disney Star Wars certainly isn’t the droid I was looking for.

Agree with that - possibly the worst episode so far for me. The call back to
was LOL unless the Star Wars universe really is small and they are already running out of locations

Better episode than last week is faint praise as last weeks was quite bad. I don't see how such a short series can have filler episodes but we are getting them.

Granted the budget is $100 million dollars but look at what they are reusing; old sets, costumes.

The whole thing does feel very small and claustrophobic at times, You could have got a good 2 hr movie with that budget.

I'm still not convinced its Pedro Pascal in the suit, he just provides the voice. This notion that Mandalorians don't take of their helmets is quite new to new to have taken such hold between rebels and now which is about 15 years so Mando would have to have been hiding his face before rebels took place when he was a child. But as we saw in Rebels they do take their helmets of frequently

And its official for Episode 4 at least I bloody knew it

No doubt everyone else won’t be impressed as usual, but this week’s IMO was comfortably the best episode yet & Finally at an entertainment level that I had hoped it would reach. The extra runtime length helped...

This is the exact reason I love this show... I want it to feel more like The A-Team, Knight Rider or Incredible Hulk, I don’t want to to be one of these boring modern snooze fests where all they do is talk and wind up with a complicated plot that I can’t be bothered to understan and you then are forced to watch every episode hoping for it to end quickly! (Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones are two that spring to mind)

I want a show to be short, simple and fun... which every episode has been.

It’s the same with clothing... why is it so difficult to buy regular clothes anymore, why do they only sell slim fit, skinny clothes that make you look like a nob!

Star Wars: The Mandalorian (November 2019)

I didn’t think Richard Ayoade’s voice worked for the Droid which is odd as talking like a robot seems to be his thing. Maybe it wasn’t the voice itself more the mannerisms and way he spoke.

Yeah, it was great apart from Natalia Tena who annoyed the crap out of me.

Oh, and the probably the most obvious 'reversed' shot in history where Mayfield's shoulder gun suddenly switched to his left shoulder.

You must wet yourself at the Flash and anything on the CW network then.

Not many callbacks in Episode 7 ( other than the ones to earlier Mandalorian episodes ) and not a good episode overall for me.

An OK episode but for an 8 part series costing $100 million can't see where all the money went. They have reused locations 3 times

Plot hole


Still feels like a movie cut into bits.

Still better episode than some of the other Deborah Chow has done a good job on her episodes . Dialog was a bit crap though.

They did say they were re-using sets and props but giving Gizmo a Brazilian is going to far.
