    You put the Mandalorin in a dive bar against the baddest people out there and he’s likely going to come out on top. That’s his thing. But you get him out of his comfort zone, in an alien world with creatures he’s unfamiliar with, and he’s not so dominant. I like that about the character and the writing. We get to see him thrive at his best, but also struggle when he’s out of his element.

    I think that’s exactly what
    completely agree! The way they shot it made me feel like babyoda’s focus was on the wound and he was clearly trying to do something with the force.

    I like that they are setting up a relationship between these two. There is definitely a sense of connection and they are trying to protect each other which I think will play out in bigger ways later.

    It’s going to be very interesting to see what the plot will be. Will Mando be on the run from the empire remnants with babyoda? Will the empire remnants get babyoda and then Mando has regrets and tries to get him back?

    The other big question will be what is babyodas ultimate fate and how does it play into the ST events?

    This series has so much potential and I’m loving it so far!!

    A common theme with criticism is the episodes are too short. I don’t think it’s that they’re short, it’s that Disney chose to release them one week at a time vs all at once so we can binge.

    They’re giving a free trial for Disney+... offering up the whole season at once wasn’t going to happen.

    Right or wrong, good or bad, this line of criticism shows that pretty much universally we all want MORE. That is a terrific sign!

    This was an interesting parallel:

    "I could use a crew member of your ability. I can pay handsomely."

    "I am honored, but I have worked a lifetime to be free of servitude."

    I expected the next line to be: "That's too bad. Babyoda kinda likes you." :p

    Well it was a set budget for the whole season ( Not sure of the exact amount but I think it’s north of $100 Million) so they are actually spending more on a episode then most of GOT .
    & they have green lit Season 2 so more episodes are definitely coming.

    Totally agree here. I'm glad he's not all bad ass perfect. He's bad ass but far from perfect and I'm glad the writers remind us that there is in fact a man under the mandalorian armor.

    I’m not really concerned about the length of the episodes... I prefer quality and purpose over filler. If you compare it to a novel, not all chapters are the same length. Same thing here. They are doing a superb job so far... I have spoken.

    Yes, especially since Kuiil referred to the job as servitude...we'd need more equal footing for the future.

    I concur. (Man)do is a man and he does not have Starkiller (Force Unleashed) god-like powers. In fact, his struggle is refreshing, to see a non-force user take on “scum and villany” and finally see the prowess of the Mandalorians on the bronze screen.,

    Very similar I thought to Han offering Rey a job on the falcon, except for Han being the opposite regarding wages

    I am seeing a woman on The Mandalorian Banner for Disney+. She has auburn/chestnut hair and blaster carbine. Does anyone have any idea who she is?

    There's a character called Cara Dune (played by Gina Carano) coming at some point. She's a former Rebel sharpshooter. Is she the one you mean?

    Probably. Close ups of her and Mando were featured on Disney+ last night. I suspect she will feature in Ep3. Perhaps Mando teams up with her to protect Babyoda?

    My daughter came in while I was rewatching this episode and is now completely hooked on Babyoda. We think the Mando needs a Baby On Board bumper sticker for the Razorcrest. :rolleyes::p

    Haha that would be perfect! I want Babyoda plush, Funko pop, and even one that comes in the flying saucer chamber. :)

    I gave this episode 4 out of 5 not because of the length but some of it felt a bit clumsy. Overall I enjoyed the hell out of it and appreciated them trying to do new things whether they landed exactly right or not.
    I and others have noticed the patch on Dr. Pershing's arm as being the same as seen on Kamino (on all of the clones and scientists) so that leads us to believe that his interest in "Baby Yoda" is somehow rooted in cloning. What do you all think? Is this child a clone of Yoda or do they want to clone this naturally born child for his abilities in the Force so they can exploit it? Also, I know GL was consulted on this and based a lot Star Wars lore off of eastern religions. Are we introducing Force reincarnation or is that taking things too far? I also can't help but think that what they're setting up with Baby Yoda will somehow tie in with Rey's origins.
    I am so happy to be excited and intrigued by Star Wars again.
