It is absolutely brilliant. I've always been a fan of fictional Mandalorian lore and history so announcing this series made me very glad.

They totally nailed the vibe of the underworld and I especially like that chronologically this takes place years after the fall of the Empire. Maybe we get some joining point later with the Sequel Trilogy. Our protagonist is a real warrior but he has a big heart and I love it very much.




SPOILER

He kinda became a father figure to the mini Yoda. It's said that the mystery about his race will be revealed finally, and I can't wait for it!

SPOILER END

As soon as I saw 'Baby Yoda' floating next to the Mandalorian going off into the sunset, it reminded me of an indie comic book series from the early 1970s -- Lone Wolf and Cub. It was a manga created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima. It was so popular, it became a series of movies and more.

So far, I am impressed with how well this new show has done.
Perhaps we should get Jon Favreau to work on all my life long favorite books, comics, heroes? :D

I love the show. The Western-Kung Fu vibe is perfect. I hope that continues for a long time.

I've only had time to watch 3 episodes, but I only started watching because of Baby Yoda. It's such a different type of show, I'm definitely a fan. My slowness is due to my time constraints, not the show. I find the pace of the show utterly fascinating!

Me too I do like the new show. For me it is much more in line with and does have the feeling or causes the feeling of Star Wars on my side than the new movies did (I just have seen the latest one “Rise of Skywalker”).
As it had been said, me too, I hope they keep up the good work they are doing with this one!

My nesting partner and I binge-watched the series right at the beginning of the year. I totally agree about having a few more episodes focusing on Mando before introducing the cuteness. It really would have given the whole thing a better foundation.
What gets me is the level of acting required to so clearly portray a character while always wearing a mask. He doesn't have the big bad force-wielding villain help that Vader does to create the character, and he's not a mostly-side character like the other Mandalorians through the films have been, yet his personality is so well-developed.
I'm definitely looking forward to season 2.
