He did, yes. I did forget about that, tbh. But he didn't object nearly as strongly as when they all considered training Anakin. Then Yoda was like "Impossible, it is. Too old, he is. Refuse, I do. Hmm."

And he was right. If they had not trained Anakin, he would not have restored 'balance' to the force. Yoda should have pulled out his lightsaber and beheaded Anakin the moment he saw him. Then Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.

Ok, so maybe instead Mace turns to Yoda and says:

"Reach in that bag and hand me my lightsaber. It's the one that says 'Bad A$$ Mother$#@&$*'"

Then Mace kills all three... laugh.gif

Just finished watching the first episode of The Mandalorian. It was really good. It is a Western, just with laser guns. A lot of fun, without too much thinking. The titular character never takes his helmet off for the entire episode, which makes me want to applaud. Not many actors are willing to do that. They even lampshaded it when someone asks him if he ever takes his helmet off.

Come to think of it, I do not believe we ever heard the Mandalorian's name either. He might be The Mandalorian With No Name. There is a precedent for it in Westerns after all... wink.gif

I thought his armor looked kind of cheaply made at first, except for the helmet. During the episode he gets some Beskar steel, which he takes to a Mando smith to have a pauldron made from it. After that I started looking more closely at the rest of his armor, and appreciated it a lot more. I could see how other parts of it were Beskar as well, like the helmet, and others were not. You could see it just from the texture of the metal. That was a really good touch.

Jon Favreau makes a cameo as a mark, and Nick Nolte also turns up for a little while. Both are voice-acting cgi aliens. I also recognized the voice of the Mandalorian smith as Emily Swallow. Werner Herzog is a former Imperial who hires the Mando, and I expect we will see more of him, and the Imperial remnant in future episodes.

So far they have shown us that the Mando has a cool ship, a Razor Crest (I am not sure if that is the model, or just the name of his individual ship). I just read in an article that they use a practical model for it rather than cgi. That is good to hear. It will still look good in the future, when we have 8k and 48k tvs.

I think what I appreciated most was how they played the Mando. They did not try to go over the top with the macho attitude, or uberness with him. He's a lot more laid back, like Kevin Sorbo plays his characters. He's tough, and you know it, so he does not have to brag about it. In fact, he's the one suggesting to another bounty hunter that they team up. He gets rescued from a giant guar that was going to eat him by Nick Nolte's somewhat scrawny-looking alien character, and falls flat on his back the first time he tries to ride said guar. But in the fights, he comes through.

He's also not as much of a lone wolf as it first appeared. He is part of a Mandalorian clan, one cast out in the galaxy in the Mando diaspora. In fact, they revealed that he is not a Mando by birth, but was an orphan adopted into the Mando clan. Something which plays a key role in events at the end of the episode. He is also a member of the Bounty Hunters guild. His contact in the guild is Carl Weathers, looking a little older and softer from how I remember him in Predator. But hey, he's still Carl Weathers! smile.gif

A buddy of mine saw it and had nothing but good to say about it. Dammit, now Khajiit is considering getting yet another subscription. Le sigh

I hope I'm not beating a dead horse here but I do hope they address the fate of Boba Fett. I know he isn't considered Mandalorian in new canon(thanks a lot, George Freaking Lucas dry.gif ) but if you're going to have a new character that more or less is a successor to Fett in this Post-Empire galaxy, you might as well let fans know what exactly happened to one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. Hell, some are even saying Boba is in the background of the first episode.

We know Aurra Sing was as mentioned in Solo; few other Bounty hunters and characters had their named dropped in the anthology movies like Kenobi(referenced in Rogue One) and Syndulla(also referenced in Rogue One). So, can we have a nice little mention of Fett retiring somewhere in some distant planet(I mean Vader's payment for Solo, and Jabba's payment for Solo must have been big credits to Fett), instead of ignobly digesting in the Sarlaac's belly. I mean he was defeated by a blind man . . . not saying legendary characters don't meet crappy ends, since Achilles, Alexander the Great and plenty others met less-than-glorious fates . . . but it would be a disservice not to mention Fett in any way in the event this new guy is "replacing" him.

That being said, I really enjoyed the first episode of the Mandalorian. This new character is already a great character in my opinion, and as Subrosa pointed out, he's had some humbling moments in the pilot, establishing that he's no overpowered indestructible warrior but rather a very skilled one that may or may not need support when in stressful moments. I like this grittier part of Star Wars that brings us back to the Original Trilogy with the cantina scenes, and the countless alien species that inhabit the galaxy, and we get to meet them as opposed to the majority of them being as background characters in the sequel trilogy. Did I mention I'm more excited about the Mandalorian than Rise of Skywalker? (Gasp!)

I'm also excited for the Obi-Wan series, despite Obi-Wan not being on my list of favorite characters. There's plenty of other series confirmed to be in development, one of which is a rumored Darth Maul and Qui'ra series(Hell. Yeah.). Hopefully we'll see what's in store.

The only issue I had with the pilot episode of the Mandalorian was that it ended too damn fast. Wish the episode was longer laugh.gif

And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed.
I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.”

Yeah but then you have to get a vpn and deal with the torrents and Khajiit thinks he would rather pay the $7 than trust all of that is working like it should.
