Watched The Mandalorian S2E4

Watched The Mandalorian from

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.

Another dud.

The music on this show is really not good, especially since the original Star Wars delivered a killer soundtrack. This is phoning it in with the generic triumphant music for every minor win.

I can’t stand how every person fawns over The Child in the show, it feels very forced. Especially since the way they carry it makes clear it’s not a real creature.

Didn’t like the two characters from the first season then, didn’t like them again. Filler scenes without Pedro Pascal, I’ll skip em thanks. He’s carrying this show.

Plot development was stupid and lazy and so very Start Wars, reminder this is why I’m not a Star Wars person. Everything about this plot feels forced. Even the connection to The Child. I want more explanation why he came to care for it and turn his life upside down for it. I assume it’s related to him being rescued as a child but I want that character development, not slapstick lazy make-the-red-shirt-do-it crap or mcguffin endless quests with convenient cameo appearances and fan service every week. The first season was good, the second season is Star Wars 🤷‍♀️
