The Mandalorian is a TV series starring Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, and Gina Carano. The travels of a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
Extremely Western episode, still seeming to follow a monster of the week episode style. Starting off with a betrayal the hero escapes from despite having multiple guns drawn on him, then the bar in a remote town where he’s looking for a stranger, a confrontation with no room for The Man to budge, and a standoff. The Mandalorian playing the part of a Louis Lamour hero who knows the ways of the native people (the Tusken raiders) and respects them, while everyone else is racist shitbags. A throwaway episode but entertaining enough to introduce a new season and remind us of his new quest. One earlu scene was way too Disney-fied in my opinion, soaring triumphant music, “adorable” clumsy robots, and cheesey banter disguising exposition. Hoping they resist the urge for too many of those.
