    I was 99% joking. I am not very familiar with his voice, but he definitely sounds like Combs to me.

    But they had to construct a whole chamber - it just made it seem more of an impressive procedure. We couldn't see what actually happened when Han was lowered. Again, it was a minor quibble.

    Well, the Bespin carbon freezing facility was industrial grade, and made to capture the gaseous tibanna mined there for transport. It makes sense that it would involve some sort of flash freeze, especially since tibanna has typically been associated with blasters and other energy weapons in the expanded universe and is therefor understood to be potentially volatile. This unit was presumably designed for the express purpose we see it put to here, and as such wouldn't need to be anywhere near as large. And, even when Luke escapes Vader's trap, the effect used is the same, with the spray of gas.

    I enjoyed the western motifs in songs and theme.

    I loved the look and feel of how everything felt lived in.

    I liked the world building and references from new monies and even Life Day.

    Was the client wearing some kind of Imperial medal? It would explain some things if here were former Empire.

    I'm guessing "Foundling" = orphan?

    I don't recall anyone referring to the "backpipe" before - was this the first toilet we've seen in this universe?

    I'm sure there are a million references and easter eggs that are totally going over my head (Afterbuzz did reveal that the "Life Day" thing the bounty referenced was from the old "Star Wars Christmas Special"!)
    Overall great start to the show!!

    Not a big Star Wars fan but really enjoyed the first episode.

    Couple questions for the Experts.

    When does this take place? From context clues I'd say shortly after episode 6 since they say the Empire is done but there are still remnants. But Iono

    Yodas race, are they suppose to be rare or nearly extinct?

    What is a Signet? Sounds like a family Crest or House Banner. For Mandalorians does each individual get theyre own that they have to earn or how does that work within their culture. If any of this is new stuff they havent covered in previous star wars Lore I apologize.

    Anyway enjoyed it alot, love how there is even this video game leveling up vibe to It. I assume as the show goes on he will earn more Of that Steel and his armor will keep getting upgraded. The Alien design were really impressive, especially for a TV show. Score was great aswell.

    From what I recall reading, it's supposed to be 5 or 6 years after Return of the Jedi, yes.

    We've only ever seen two of them before. Yoda and another Jedi. So yeah, rare. Really, really rare. So far anyway.

    The sigil stuff appears to be new. Love that we're getting more Mando lore.

    Okay...

    1. John Favreau and Filoni should make the next Star Wars movies. It's a much better choice than D&D and Rian Johnson. This Star Wars show was so good poor Rise Of The Skywalker will fail to clear the high bar this show sets.

    2. Brace yourself, the "I have spoken" memes are coming.

    3. I...don't really want to know more about Yoda's race. I'm still trying to forget Yadda.

    There's actually a female Yoda, Yaddle briefly seen on the council in The Phantom Menace (Strangely, she doesn't show up at the Naboo celebration at the end of the film with the rest, but given how the Yoda puppet looked, maybe that's for the best).

    She didn't show up in the later prequels though.


    Even in the old EU, his species seemed mainly limited to the Knights of the Old Republic games. Some have speculated that Yoda's species are the Whills, the mysterious chroniclers of Star Wars lore.

    Perhaps someone more versed in the lore knows, but the way the guy in the bar used the term, are we to pick up that "Mando" is a really disrespectful derogatory term?

    Yeah, I'm cool with Yoda being the only one, but I'm willing to trust the creative team.

    The space western aspect has always been baked into the franchise. You see it with the the outlaw character type characters such as Han, Boba Fett or Cad Bane (from The Clone Wars).

    The Mandalorian is a show that just dials it up to 11 like how the Prequels/Clone Wars emphasized the Jedi aspects of the franchise or how Rogue One emphasized the Rebel aspect. In many ways because of that, it feels more ambitious than the Sequel Trilogy in what it attempts to do.

    Everything after TFA has been ambitious from Disney, IMHO. Some of it has been a homer, some of it fizzled.
