Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 5 review with spoilers

December 7, 2019

Episode 5 starts out with a dogfight in space. An unnamed bounty hunter is bearing down on Mando. The Mando is able to pull a stop-short maneuver and get the drop on the guy. In doing so he takes some damage to the Razorcrest.

Mando limps his ship to the nearest spaceport. We nearly jumped out of our seat when he got clearance to land by ... Mos Eisley tower!

He needs money to repair his ship so he looks for bounties in the local cantina. Yes, it is the same cantina that Luke and Obi-Wan met up with Han and Chewie. He finds a rookie bounty hunter that needs help bringing in a big bounty.

Turns out the bounty is an elite assassin level target by the name Fennec Shand (portrayed by Ming-Na Wen). Mando agrees only when he is offered the full bounty as long as the rookie gets the credit.

They end up capturing Fennec, but she gets inside the rookies head while Mando is out capturing a dewback for transportation. She lets the rookie know Mando is worth far more to the bounty hunters guild than her.

The rookie shoots Fennec and goes back to Mos Eisley to hold Little Yodes hostage. Things don't work out the way he planned, and Mando quickly dispatches him. He pays for his ship repairs and leaves Mos Eisley.

The scene that has everyone talking is a mysterious figure discovers Fennec Shands body in the Dune Sea desert. All we see are the boots and a cape. The theorists are saying it is Boba Fett. Personally I don't buy into that. There are only 3 episodes left and we haven't seen Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) yet. My money is it is him that was employing Fennec Shand and now he is upset his best protection has been taken out. What are your theories on this new figure?

Have you watched all the episodes yet? What did you think about the this fourth episode? Did we miss any Easter eggs? Let us know in the comments.

We have a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 4 review with spoilers

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 4 review with spoilers

November 30, 2019

Episode 4 was a little slower than the previous 3 episodes, but it did fill in a lot about the Mandalorian. It was verified that he does in fact remove his helmet, but only when alone. That means no one has seen his face since he was a child taken in by the Mandos.

The Mandalorian finds a very backwater planet that doesn't even have a spaceport to hide out. He runs into Cara Dune (Gina Carano), an ex Rebel shock trooper who is also hiding out on the planet.

They get into a bit of a tussle (Cara Dune appeared to be winning) before they join forces to help a small local group of farmers to defeat a raiding clan of Klatooinians. Those Klatooinians have some big firepower in the form of an up-armored AT-ST. They took a somewhat goofy looking vehicle that the Ewoks made short work of, and turned it into a really evil looking killing machine.

Long story short, the farmers win and The Mandalorian is thinking about staying in the village with Baby Yoda. That is, until a bounty hunter tries to sniper Baby Yoda (He deserves his own name, so let's call him Little Yodes). The Mando then realizes he has to stay on the run and take Little Yodes with him to keep him safe.

If you watch the credits you'll notice Bryce Dallas Howard (daughter of Ron Howard aka Opie aka Richie Cunningham) directed this episode. She did a pretty decent job of capturing the human emotions side of the Mandalorian.

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 3 review with spoilers

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 3 review with spoilers

November 24, 2019

Episode 3 of the Mandalorian had such a Nerdtastic moment that it almost brought tears to our eyes. The Mando delivered the asset and collected his payment of a buttload of Beskar steel. BTW, pay attention to that scene, the camtono is a throwback reference to Willrow Hood running through Bespin carrying that same type of safe.

The Mando takes the Beskar to their hideaway. Some of the Mandos don't like the fact he worked with some remnants of the Empire since they are the ones responsible for them having to hide. There is a little scuffle, but they decide they are on the same side and make peace. The blacksmith/armorer agrees to make the Mando a new breastplate to replace the one that was thrashed by the mudhorn. He wears his new Beskar armor to get his new bounty target. All the other bounty hunters are jealous of his big payday.

long story short, he has second thoughts about turning over the baby Yoda. He goes all John Wick on the stormtroopers guarding the location. He grabs baby Yoda and heads back to his ship.
Unfortunately that sets off all the bounty hunters tracking fobs and they head him off in the street. He does a pretty good job of holding them off for a while. Just when it looks like he is penned down with no hope... The rest of the Mandos show up to rescue him. You see jetpack Mandos, heavy artillery Mandos, and every other conceivable type of Mando. They clear the way for him to get to his ship.

Greef Carga gets the drop on the Mando in his ship, but is quickly shot out of the back hatch. As the Mando is flying away one of the jetpack Mandos flies next to him like the Rocketeer, salutes him, and leaves.

This episode, while short, was packed with great storytelling and awesome action. When the jetpack Mandos made an appearance I had a Clone Wars flashback. The story should really start picking up on action now since EVERY bounty hunter in the universe should be coming after him. Maybe we will start to see some of the big name bounty hunters make appearances.

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 2 review with spoilers

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian Season 1 Episode 2 review with spoilers

November 16, 2019

Episode 2 of the Mandalorian picked right up from where the first episode ended. The bounty must be in high demand as a group of mercenaries try to get the target from the Mandalorian. Not everyone wants the bounty alive. IG-11 had instructions to kill the target and the mercenaries from this episode were trying to take out the target as well.

In true Mandalorian fashion, he disperses all the attackers. After a quick patch job on himself and his armor, he proceeds to his ship, the Razorcrest. Once he rises over the last hill he notices a clan of Jawas stripping his ship of any sell-able parts.

A kerfuffle ensues as he tries to stop the Jawas and get his parts back. He quickly finds the Jawas Sandcrawler is like a tank and is unable to get inside. He returns to our Ugnaught friend from the first episode who helps him negotiate a barter with the Jawas for the return of his parts.

They come to an agreement that the Jawas will return the parts if the Mandalorian gets them a particular egg. The problem is the big hairy rhino-like creature doesn't want to give it up.

Long story short, the Mandalorian gets the egg after being beat up pretty bad. We also learn the little Yoda baby has some pretty strong force powers. The Mando gets his parts back, rebuilds the ship with the Ugnaughts help, and leaves the planet... end scene.

This episode was a bit shorter than the first (39 minutes versus 30 minutes). I for one am okay with this. I would rather have a solid 30 minute episode than an hour long episode with useless filler that detracts from the story.

Have you watched both episodes yet? Did you like the second episode as much as the first. Did we miss any Easter eggs? Let us know in the comments.

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian episode 1 review

Disney Plus Star Wars The Mandalorian episode 1 review

November 14, 2019

Disney Plus launched November 12th on the back of their exclusive Star Wars based show "The Mandalorian". With about 10 million subscribers in the first day, I would say it was a good move.

This review is chock full of spoilers. If you haven't watched the episode yet, do that first. Then come back here and fanboy out with us.

The first episode has lots of references to the other Star Wars properties. It also has some big name cameos. Pedro Pascal plays the title character. At least we think that is him. He never removes his helmet. There is even a little joke about it in the episode. Carl Weathers portrays a bounty guild admin. He collects the targets from bounty hunters and pays them for their haul. Nick Nolte lent his voice to an Ugnaught that helps the Mandalorian out. Werner Herzog plays someone with a special high price bounty. Taika Waititi gives a great voice performance as IG-11, the bounty hunting droid. There are lots more big names in future episodes.

This first episode really captured the feel of the original trilogy while also developing a new seedy underworld to the Star Wars Universe. The movies have only shown us the big heroes and villains. The Mandalorian is introducing us to all the important players on the fringe of the overarching Star Wars story. We can't wait for the second episode to be available for streaming so we can geek out some more.

Have you watched the first episode yet? Do you agree with us that it is the shot in the arm that Star Wars needs right now? Let us know in the comments.

We have a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.
