  1. Yup. And shortly after that the planet was purged, and the Mandalorian diaspora began. If you look into the Mandalorian backstory from legends, they were a warrior society to the extreme before modern times. They would conquer other planets because they believed that strength was morality, and therefore weakness was sin. Any society that put up a good enough fight was invited to accept the creed and become Mandalorians themselves. Those that didn't were wiped out or subjugated because they were sinful. The universe naturally rewarded survival of the fittest, so allowing weak societies to grow
  2. The man has talent, no doubt, but when you see his interviews, quite frequently the conversation centers around how he translated an idea Lucas had into something palatable for the audience. He has unique ideas, as well, of course. It just seems like he understands that those ideas have to tie into the larger narrative, or they are largely irrelevant (at least in the contexts he has worked in thus far), unless they seamlessly integrate with the existing narrative. I think the true measure of his creativity will reveal itself fully once all constraints are removed and he is asked to work in a s
  3. Just like The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series were able to weave a more coherent and enjoyable story around the PT, The Mandalorian is weaving a story around several aspects of the ST. All of this is to soften the blow dealt by the lackluster storytelling in those films. If Filoni excels at anything, its understanding and translating Lucas' intent. He seems uniquely adept at sifting through the characters and snippets of compelling story that Lucas has in his mind and using that kernel of imagination as the basis for a story worth telling. Add in Favreau's cinematic experience and y
  4. Just got HBO Max, so I've been rewatching Rick and Morty. Came across a scene that reminded me of The Mandalorian, so I checked to see if anyone else had already made the same connection. Naturally, YouTubers did not disappoint. Rick and Morty dialogue is from S3E2 and is dubbed over an edited version of the last scene of the S2 finale of The Mandalorian. I swear, sometimes this show is just as prophetic as The Simpsons.
  5. Hahaha. Oh SA, you so crazy. In all seriousness though, that is pretty impressive. Way to improvise.
  6. And just like that, Rule 34 is proven true, yet again.
  7. If the Mandalorian theme song had words: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGl1IUU72LM
  8. I used to live right outside of Windcrest. Loved cruising through there at dusk on weekdays before the crowds got too big.
  9. He definitely goes out of his way to make Din feel okay about sending his kid to samurai wizard camp for the summer. That pulled at the heartstrings a bit.
  10. Same. Which I expect we'll see because: just like with Ashoka and Boba, too much Luke would quickly turn this show into The Master Jedi instead of The Mandalorian.
  11. I think there is a bit more support than you think for this route: https://www.monstersandcritics.com/tv/luke-skywalker-in-the-mandalorian-why-fans-wanted-sebastian-stan-not-mark-hamill-and-max-lloyd-jones-combo/ Sebastian himself even said he'd be open to it, should he get the blessing of Mark. Considering he is already a known entity in the Disney portfolio, I think that there is a decent chance of something like this happening. I mean: look at Ashoka. That character's voice actress is very well loved by the fandom, (at least the part that cares for her character), and they
  12. Same. I stupidly picked up my phone at 6AM, swiped over to my Google News feed, and right at the top was: "The Mandolorian reveals that *spoiler* is getting their own *spoiler*!" I proceeded to curse under my breathe as I pulled up the episode and watched it right then and there "at work" over my morning coffee. I've done this a few times now. Its getting harder to look surprised when I watch it again with the family on Friday nights "for the first time" though.
  13. After his Batman performance, I'm surprised this hasn't already happened. I was a little worried after seeing this.
  14. This one is pretty funny. I still find it odd that people don't car carry in SA. One of the nice things about Texas in general is the fact that the castle doctrine extends to your vehicle. No license required. I work over on the Westside, and that is one of the few places in town where I will not go out and about, regardless of time of day, without a 9mm on me, at a minimum. A couple of months back I grabbed some lunch near work and was eating it in my car. I had pulled off into a shopping mall parking lot away from the other cars. Then some rough looking character at the bus st
