    This is already one of my favorite things to ever come out of Star Wars.

    Finally a nice slow walk through the universe without the rush of a 22 minute storyline like we would get from Rebels or the CGI Clone Wars shows and not geared towards tweens.

    Loved everything about the first episode and can't wait for more of some of the stuff they've teased.

    It’s got a solid rating on RT, too. Looking forward to watching it.

    Disney +. I believe if you’re a Amazon Prime member, you get a free trial but don’t quote me on that.

    It was a good first episode.
    Also liked that they are taking the time to introduce the characters and plot. Sometimes looked like a western movie. Nice cliffhanger in the end too (won't spoil what is)

    So psyched Disney + offers a free year to Verizon customers. I credit my 15 year old for this discovery.

    I've watched the 1st 2 episodes. LOVE IT.

    Wish it included Hulu but oh well. Can't argue with free, Baby Yoda.

    Ridiculously excited for tomorrow.

    Pissed off to learn that we're only getting like 4 hours of this show this season. 8 episodes @ 30 minutes a pop, give or take, is rough but I know that's good in a way.

    The Marvel Netflix shows proved to me that you're better off if you're left dying for more rather than feel like you're plowing through hours of filler.

    8-10 episodes is fine I just wish they were 50+ minutes each.

    Honestly I like each episode more than the one that preceded it. 3 episodes in and we're almost halfway through the season nnnnng.

    This episode was fantastic. I think I'm gonna rewatch it right away.

    ****ing marked out when The Mandalorian cavalry showed up. Exploring the Mandalorian culture is one of the coolest parts of this show so far. Double cool that big boy who gave him **** about the Imperial stamped beskar was the one who said they'd hold off the bounty hunters.

    The scenes with the Mandalorian blacksmith are some of my favorites.

    The goddamn emotional manipulation they do on us with baby Yoda is practically a crime.

    It has gone way beyond my expectations.

    Apollo Creed lives!

    I've learned a hard lesson about Star Wars and high expectations.

    I still can't believe that they company which gave us the MCU has struggled so much with doing Star Wars right.

    More episode 3 spoilers:

    I'm glad we didn't see Werner get killed because he's just perfect in that role.

    I'm wondering if his comment about how hard it is to find a Mandalorian to work the beskar was a hint of some sort. I got the sense it might have been a statement phrased as a question implying that he knew where to find the Mandalorians' current hideout.

    I'm wondering if he will have a particular nemesis this season. I don't think it'll be Greef, I like Weathers but his character doesn't come across as a particularly worthy opponent for Mando. It's just weird to imagine a Star Wars story without some sort of badass enemy. Werner will probably be the primary person organizing the chase but we need to be shown someone with martial prowess that exceeds Mando's as well.

    Sort of hope it's a dark jedi/sith since I believe Mandalorian armor can withstand lightsabers. But most likely it will be an opposing bounty hunter or group of bounty hunters. Since Filoni is behind this who knows, maybe it'll be a live action debut of a Nightsister or something.

    First thing that jumped out to me is at the 26:24 mark in chapter one his shoulder armor goes from his right shoulder to his left. Then jumps back to his right. His thigh armor is also backwards and his bandolier is slung across the wrong shoulder. At least it wasn’t a Starbucks cup I guess.

    Edit. Good God the guns on the wrong hip too.
