To each their own, I think baby Yoda is adorable and is very impressive looking compared to SE Jabba and Episode I puppet Yoda.
Does anyone know the name of the planet the Mando went to to find baby Yoda?

What's next a baby Rancor with a leash? A baby trash compactor monster? A baby Jabba the Hutt? A baby Greedo with Wuhr babysitting him while he bartends?

When the stuffed toy is finally released in toy stores, it will Force levitate off the shelves. Friends and I were watching the series together and originally they were only going to watch the first two as they are casual SW fans. In the end we watched all 4 eps currently released but the show was given a change of name to 'Baby Yiddle featuring the Mandalorian'. Every time it appeared on the screen, there was ooh and aahs with comments of I need one from them.

My first impression of the show is that is nice but not a show I'm feel I need watch a second time.

I haven't seen much of The Mandalorian. Ads, brief clips, some concept art circulating on the web. And who could escape the revoltingly cute Yodaling?

And I keep thinking one thing:

Lone Wolf and Cub

But I don't think I see any Japanese people.

Is this some of that "cultural appropriation" stuff I hear about?

Episode 4 had MANY similarities to TCW S2E17 Bounty Hunters. There’s even a ship that might be the same model as the Razorcrest.
I think Filoni is directing episode 5, I’m looking forward to that!

Episode 5 was directed by Filoni, and it was a nostalgia overload! JJ must’ve gotten Filoni’s ear.
I did find the Mando’s knowledge of Tusken’s interesting.

Just watched the season finale of the Mandalorian. And I am so pleased with how this show has turned out!
THIS IS THE WAY!
Giancarlo Esposito was a phenomenal success! His character exuded a cool calculating definitive threat, Moff Gideon will be remembered long after the memories of Snoke and Captain Phasma have faded from memory.
Ethan van Sciver made a great analogy between this show and the Sequel Trilogy, if the child represents all the good of Star Wars, Disney is the Client and JJ Abrams is Dr Pershing who is trying to clone the child. We the fans are the Mandalorian, protecting the child (Star Wars).
I loved this show, and if you’d didn’t that’s fine also. I’m not gonna yuck your yum if you preferred the ST. Everyone is welcome to like what they like.

This has been out since December 17th and I'm sure some of you have seen this but it's just so funny!

It was a hit with my little scifi group and I'm the only one who is described as a big SW fan. Stories had a better SW feel than the ST. For something that can yet string a sentence together 'The Child' is the star and if it leaves hen ratings will drop.

It appears inevitable that Disney will finally name Yoda's species breaking GL wish of leaving it a mystery. Even if they never find the race, the Mandalorian is going to have to find out some info to assist with this journey.

Unless Mando finds a clue or a map or some sort of ancient text, and is heard saying "So that's where they come from" but the info isn't shown on screen. It will be like the dark man on Lost never having a name and the audience being intentionally kept in the dark about what it was.

Considering the instruction left at the end of the last ep, LFL has to balance keeping the mystery but feeding the story line. The first season was all out protecting the child and it appears the second is to reunite the child with its species. The average fan doesn't have the patience and doesn't remember that GL promised never to reveal Yoda's race.

The species is bigger than just a name reveal. Once known then it help with the care and upbringing of the child.

I have never seen any of Lost and have no plans to. This show isn't Lost and everyone I know felt cheated by the reveal it was all a dream. It made it very unpopular and Disney hates unpopular as it is bad for after sales.

Aside from Ashley Ekstien I think Rosario Dawson is a good choice for Ahsoka. And I don’t care about all the nonsense revolving around an alleged law suit over an alleged incident between her family and a house keeper.
