Okay, it’s safe to say that my brain is busted after watching the season premiere of The Mandalorian. When season one my expectations for the continuing story were high but as we got closer to the premiere date I decided to dampen my enthusiasm in case the show ultimately would disappoint me. Of course, this is just the first episode of eight. Episodes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 could be super boring and underwhelming but I’m happy to announce the first episode is incredible.
I’m talking new characters, old characters, beloved characters, and (SPOILER ALERT!) even a dragon. It’s insane.
The first episode clocks in at a whopping 55 minutes and it utilizes every second to great effect. I was riveted from the get-go and gloriously reintroduced to Mando’s ruthlessness. Baby Yoda once again has his cute moments. I mean, the feeling the first season gave me is the same feeling I’m getting with this season and honestly, I’m thankful.
I’m giving Chapter Nine: The Marshal a solid 5 out of 5 stars. Great job, Jon Favreau. It was incredible.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day. May the Force be with you.
