  • Despite what I see as disappointments, this series redeems itself in several ways. Scenery, graphics, settings are all up to the standards that the Star Wars franchise is known for. And in later chapters – for instance, in Chapter 6 – Luke Skywalker is stunningly reproduced by CGI – truly the best “state of the art” animation that I have ever seen; Mark Hamill’s voice could be heard. In that same chapter, a very touching scene was masterfully handled with the combination of the music background and powerful but very subtle acting of Rosario Dawson (reprising the character of Ahsoka Tano), who captured a poignant moment between the Mandalorian and herself as she took possession of an item that meant so much to the armored warrior for a special purpose. I do not want to describe the scene more; it would be a spoiler. There were no words at that moment; just the way that she handled the item and the look she gave to “Mando” as the treasure changed hands.

  • Glad to see a continuation of Star Wars characters and the excellent CGI and other production elements that make these serials a must-see! The actors did their parts well, the plot was engaging, and the monsters were cool.

    However, I thought the theme music – as compared with The Mandalorian, for example, needs some work. I can listen to the other Star Wars type theme songs again and again – it is art music to me – but the first episode’s theme music was just not memorable or something that will be churning around my cranium. It could use some depth and excitement.

    The other thing – given the history of Jango Fett and how he raised his son (who witnessed the violence and was trained in an academy of clones like him), and who the father worked for without a shred of regret – are we really going to go with that kinda touchy-feely leadership style that the character of Boba is portraying? Respect over fear?

    To me that dialog just does not seem to ring true to what a Boba Fett would be concerned about, given his background and occupation as a hitman and bounty hunter. I liked that way that the Mandalorian was a man of few words but had a soft heart for the infant Grogu (Yoda type 50-year-old toddler). But he still was not the “community organizer” type. I just do not think that scenario fits this fictional journey.

  • I loved the show. Stayed up til midnight & watched it 4 x already. The only thing I didn’t like were the Torqs the Tustin Warriirs wore. They looked like toilet paper rolls. I realized these needed a futuristic look from the Bronze Age Torqs of 3,000 years ago, but …(no bun, er, pun, intended). I enjoyed the Harry Hausen nod with the 6 legged creature. Very Greek looking. Can’t wait for the second episode.
