My ‘The Mandalorian’ thoughts, two eps in…
OK sure it’s fine. I’m not a blown away. The humor seems like it’s trying way too hard. I’m not in love with all the CGI (Where is the return to practical effects we were promised? Were “we” promised that? I don’t know!).
Those are my two main gripes. Other than that, yeah I like it. I’m not a big enough Star Wars fan in the sense that I know or care if any of this is accurate in terms of how it relates in a historical sense to the greater “canon” books, stories, etc… Was Yoda ever a baby? I mean, sure I guess he had to have been at some point in so much as every living thing was once a baby, real or fictional.
You can’t argue with BABY YODA. It is an un-winnable position to be on the opposing side. To merely ask the question “is baby Yoda good?” truly feels like heresy if not an out-and-out crime that should automatically add you to some kind of watch list.
I also appreciate the weirdo characters introduced so far. The old pig guy who calls The Mandalorian “Mando” is cool, Horatio Sanz blue alien (minus the laffz), etc etc. And seeing Werner Herzong and Carl Weathers act in anything is always nice. I’ll keep watching. I wonder if baby Yoda lives; I need to find out!
