I just watched the last back half of this season.

WOOOOO. I take it all back. Amazing. I watched those episodes twice in the last 12 hours. Really took me back to being a kid.

That ending was amazing. I'm not even a huge Star Wars guy, but that was epic. Best thing I've seen from Star Wars since the original trilogy. In fact, I'd take Mandalorian's two season over anything I've seen since the original trilogy. Rogue one is a close second. I even liked Solo more than episodes 1-3 and 7-9.


Rewatched both. Real close to Star Wars. I enjoyed them. As mentioned, dialogue wasn't a precedence.

I do have a question. SPOILER ALERT





Boba Fett was eaten by a Sarlac so how was his armor passed on?

As solid waste?

No wonder the Jawas are so cranky.

The sarlacc spit him out.

https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Boba_Fett#Into_the_sarlacc

Quote:
Fett survived his fall into the sarlacc, though he was quickly separated from his armor, which was found by Jawas and later acquired by the Tatooinian sheriff Cobb Vanth.[43][44] At some point Fett acquired a gaderffii stick and cycler rifle.[11] Though a number of rumors about his fate circulated, Fett was presumed dead due to his fall into the sarlacc pit.[45]

Finally finished the season about an hour ago. I’m still buzzing. That was frigging incredible. I felt like a kid again. This was just like the Vader scene in Rogue One where previously we never got to see Vader being an utter badass on the big screen until then. This was Luke’s utter badass moment. Then if it wasn’t perfect enough, R2 comes rolling in. Me and my wife went crazy. Then the Boba Fett stuff on top of it. Jon Favreau saved my damn childhood in one season. I loved it.

Just caught up with this. Think they had a nice thing there and blew it a little at the end there, though I suppose IP synergy was always inevitable.

The show is enjoyable but the writing in so wooden. Painfully bad at times. Also I think they could do a lot better with the fight scenes. It's like watching a battle from the revolutionary war where everyone just stands in the open and shoots at each other with no sense of danger at all.

I've just come to terms with the fact that this is the style/motif they're going for.

A lot of the fight choreography is bizarrely slow. I imagine it’s difficult to move in those costumes but you can speed things up with the edit and I’m always surprised when they don’t.

Honestly? It was such an enjoyable show that got my inner Star Wars geek excited I could care less. I loved this show, thought it was very well done, and so did my wife and Grandma (neither of whom are Star Wars fans).

One of my favorite themes was the fact here was a guy who lived by a creed which included never removing his helm. But he loved Grogu, so on two occasions - one forced by circumstances, and once because Grogu wanted him to before saying good bye - he removed his helmet.

That's just one part of it. Overall was very pleased by the show. Looking forward to next season, and of course Kenobi series!
