I want a baby Yoda. More than is probably reasonable.

I am completely loving this show.  I like how the Mandalorian ends up in fights that have him outmatched, yet he finds a way to win.

Baby Yoda should be the hottest toy of the holidays if LFL would get their act together. After 4 episodes by the time of Black Friday, secrecy will no longer be needed.

What is needed, is Baby Yoda Tots everywhere!! 😁😁

I echo the sentiments about the need for a Baby Yoda ;)

But I loved the fight with the Jawas on the sandcrawler in Friday’s episode and then the later scene where all the Jawas were chanting “The Egg!” as the crawler moved along - it was just hilarious in a good way!  And awesome that Baby Yoda demonstrated it has force powers 8)

I'm into these two episodes, but what's up with the 30-40 minute run times?

I thought this was going to be a big expensive deep-dive into live-action Star Wars for TV / Streaming, but it looks like it's going to basically be a 4 to 5 hour movie broken into chunks.  I've been trying to stay away from reading about it, but do we know if they're planning multiple seasons for this or is it just a mini-series?

So am I the only one who found the Mandalorian fighting a Sandcrawler full of Jawas to be just amazing?  That was fantastic.  And then fighting the shaggy Reek looking thing and getting its egg?  Just to barter for the parts for his own ship?  It was a great story.  And getting the baby Yoda into the mix with an impressive display of Force abilities was just icing on the cake.

As for the series?  They're already working on season 2.

Everything about the Jawas was awesome. I loved when he was incinerating them. Climbing the crawler was awesome. And I was sure he was gonna get to the top and "win". Instead he's blasted off. And then almost dies just to trade and get back to even. Awesome!

Solid episode.  I really liked how the hover bassinet was synched with The Mandalorian and kept up with him, and how The Mandalorian could "force push" move it out of harms way.

I'll be interested to see where this story goes.  The Mandalorian is an orphan and I assume baby Yoda is too.  I have a hard time believing he's just going to turn him over.  Hopefully there is some good internal and external conflict.

I really hope there is a figure coming that they can pair with a baby Yoda along with the hover bassinet.

Man, I need a lot more Jawas now after seeing that! That whole segment attacking the Sandcrawler was amazing.

Looked like the 3 Trandoshans had the same homing beacon he and IG-11 were using.

It also seemed like Baby Yoda was attempting to heal the Mandalorian’s wounds...that would be an interesting new ability.

Where is this kid gonna be in TROS though??  :D

YES! This reminded me so much of the Super Star Wars game from Super Nintendo. There's a level where, as Luke, you have to hop into the Sandcrawler while blasters shoot at you and Jawas pop out of windows to throw debris at you. And the Mando's rifle disintegrating them was a cool nod to the sniper rifle in the Jedi Knight II video game. Lots of Lucasarts inspirations in this series!

Obviously I got around to watching Episode 2 last night after watching Episode 1 the other day. Digging the series so far. I love that it just has a Star Wars "feel" and that might be due to the classic aliens. Seeing the IG droid in action with all its spinning-ness was awesome. And Captain Ketwol being cut in half by a door! Explains that Power of the Jedi figure I guess.

I think the most interesting part of the first episode was finding out that there are toilets in Star Wars.

I've been hearing a few different terms used for the Mandalorian's bounty at the end of Chapter One.  Some are calling it "The Asset".  And another funny acronym is T.I.N.Y. for This Is Not Yoda, LOL!

I still don't think I've not had a grin on my face through three episodes. I was sure he'd just bail on the client and never bring Yoddler in. "The Sin". I love he handed over the asset. But then let the inner struggle win out.
