The Mandalorian Season 3

Honestly it would’ve been nice to have a season of Mando without the added weight of baby Yoda. I get he’s the real Star Wars money maker but I feel like there’s not a whole lot of mileage left with that character until/unless they age him up some. It’s the same as baby Groot, cute only goes so far

Yeah, I get what you are saying.  From a story standpoint, it is hard to justify Mando going into battle to free Mandalore with baby Yoda in one arm and a blaster in the other.  They kind of wrote Grogu into a corner because he's like 50 years old (or whatever it is, I can't remember at the moment) and apparently ages so slow that he still is like 5 years old physically.  

 

But I am just going to go with it and not nitpick it too much.

It's amazing how much I was into S1 and 2, but not overly-amped for S3? BOBF was so terrible, and the fact that you HAVE to watch it to be caught up with Mando S3 leaves a bad taste in my mouth. That S2 ending with Luke was just everything, and I can't help but feel like it could have ended there. I hope I'm wrong. Maybe I just have SW fatigue.

BOBF was so awful it really turned me off.

No, you're just an assassin of joy!  j/k :p

But yeah I got the feeling that the end of season 2 WAS supposed to be the ending, and they extended the show probably late in the game.  It would have been a good ending if it had, but when it comes to Mando, I am all for more.   I know BOBF was a stinker, but being the "optimist" I am (LOL! that's a laugh), I have to go into season 3 thinking they can only go up from there.   The Mando episode of BOBF was the best thing about the show, and now that we are back to the Mando proper, I think there may be some redeeming going on (not just Mando, but Star Wars in general).

The ending of season 2 was never going to be the ending because Luke taking the baby was always a mistake and was  never going to work out. 

Now having that shown during a totally different show than Mando is another story.

That was a close to Grogu’s arc. The plot dangler— which is being picked up on, was the Darksaber/Mandalor/Bo Katan stuff.

But Grogu is a huge draw so they needed him back in and didn’t want to spend to long on getting to it so they piggy-backed it onto BOBF (which was already being shot on a shoestring budget leftover from Mando S2.)

EpisodeS. He’s in like 3 of them.

Yeah they are like the last 3 I think, but the one that was titled Return of the Mandalornian (if I remember right) was the most important one.   The others are just him helping Boba out. It was really weird that you had a BOBF episode without Boba LOL!

What Im saying is that it never could be the end of Grogu's arc because Grogu was never going to be happy after being taken away from someone who loved him like Mando. It was not a happy ending for him because it was obviously a bad thing. Whatever training and power he acquired with Luke doesn't matter. Love is more important than power.

But that was the best one LOL. That series really went downhill fast and even Mando showing up wasn't enough to fend off the mediocrity. If you want a good laugh, watch the Pitch Meeting video on Youtube about it.
