First episode was pretty dull. It clearly wants to be a Western and it’s having a hard time juggling that with the goofy nature of Star Wars. I’ll watch another one before deciding whether or not to bail.

I liked the first two episodes but if there's another Death Star in the story, I'm out.

I was hoping for a truly independent story that didn’t connect with the canon at all. They just can’t help themselves.

Me too. I’m guessing Disney is terrified that if they did that they’d get a ton of cancellations after just one month.

That was certainly my plan. Now I will just cancel in December and re-up if there's another season (assuming The Mandalorian continues to entertain).

The Disney+ lineup gets bad real fast. I suspect there will be a lot of cancellations.

I enjoyed the first two episodes, it has me wanting to know more about the main character and the culture of the mandalorians. They've had bits and pieces in the first two episodes, but its enough to gain my interest.

I was a little stunned when I found out that the mechanic guy was Nick Nolte, lol. I thought his voice sounded familiar.

There is absolutely nothing outside of The Mandalorian that interests me at all. I have already seen everything else there that is of interest, and don't anticipate wanting to watch any of it again.

Oh man, now that you mention that, the character even looks like a miniature Nolte.

I’m sure it’s great for kids but outside that…

First two episodes have been interesting, it feels a little more realistic, it just hero-mode Boba Fett.

You guys are right, that makes sense why they would slow roll content out then.

There’s actually a lot more stuff on there, but you have to go to the search and type it in. Idk why it doesn’t appear as you browse the thumbnails smh

Signed up for Disney Plus combo pack with Hulu and ESPN+ the moment they became available. The Mandalorian was worth every bit of the $13 bones and then some. Looking forward to more content from Disney.

Do you have insider info on future releases? That's a bummer if it's sheet after this.

I'm pretty sure they'll be just fine. The Marvel shows are the biggest attraction and they haven't even started yet.

They’ll have more stuff coming, I was just struck while browsing that once you scroll through the Star Wars movies and some Disney animated classics how quickly you get to the supermarket bargain dvd section. They’ll need time to grow out their catalog but I can see a large number of consumers not willing to pony up until they do. Without The Mandalorian, which has generated remarkable buzz, I’m not sure this service would have anything to offer at the moment. Star Wars fans already own those movies, or are better off renting them for less than the cost one one month of Disney+. Same with the animated films. This will be the real test for streaming platforms that don’t have a deep library of already beloved content (this is HBO Max’s greatest strength). Netflix has spent years and an ungodly amount of money beefing up their originals and staking out certain niche corners (food shows, standup comedy, teen romcoms) and yet the most watched content on their platform is stuff like Friends and The Office. They’re about to lose those shows and will have to sell people on their originals as the main course and not the side dish.

I browsed through D+ and realized I'm never going to use it except for Mandalorian.

Netflix I enjoy the original content so I don't mind them going away from Friends and The Office if that means more $ to make quality original content.

CNET has a breakdown of every movie/show available, along with all the original content planned to be released over the next year. There is a lot...then the Fox library starts coming into play. I wouldn't bet against Disney+ becoming the most dominant streaming provider.

Really hoping D+ adds some kind of parental lock so a lot of the more adult oriented Fox content can be added. Fox has a lot of interesting content but I don't know if it's enough to start a new streaming service with.

They do offer a type of "parental lock" now, you can designate a profile as 'Kid' and then that profile only has kid friendly content available.

I also have heard that a lot of 'R' rated materials could be moved to Hulu, which Disney owns around 70% of currently.
