Watched The Mamdalorian S2E6

Watched The Mandalorian from Disney+

The Mandalorian is a TV series starring Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, and Carl Weathers. The travels of a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.

What absolute garbage.

What a waste of Pedro Pascal’s talent.

The writing on this season is abysmal. So many choices that don’t fit the characters at all. Everything done in service of the plot and fan favorites. This isn’t a story, it’s an excuse to make episodes with Star Wars fan favorites. So many contrivances to give the writers an excuse to visit planets and hang out with our favs. The stupid McGuffin of the season, getting Grogu 🤮 to his people, is also just another way to revisit old friends. And of course they decide “his people” are not, y’know, his people, but the Jedi. Give me a fucking break. The Jedi are gone at this point right? Luke hasn’t started his Jedi 2.0 school yet? I can’t keep up with Star Wars cannon.

The fight scene was a joke. DH was dying laughing that soldiers in a society this advanced are still using mortars, a WWII weapon. They tried to make Boba Fett badass by giving him a nonsensical weapon that looked like an oversized plumbing tool.

OMG the Dark Troopers. So dumb. Straight rip from Marvel.

Such a disappointment after the first season.
