Bullet-pointed ramblings about The Mandalorian might be my favorite part of having a Disney+ subscription. There's no real point about all this other than that I'm having fun doing it. There are spoilers, but I don't care; this is best understood if you have already watched the season.
This might be the least appetizing show so far in this extended run of Star Wars shows. It's the life and times of a has-been character, where we already know his fate and the fate of all the important characters of the show. When will the extended universe get back to telling unique stories? In the meantime, maybe you'll enjoy another running list of random thoughts I had while watching the show.
As I watched the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, I had a lot of thoughts on the matter. Mostly that the show was derivative, loaded with tropes and cliches, monotonous in pacing, but with a stellar score. As The Book of Boba Fett was being pitched, I had a feeling that I would also have Thoughts on the Matter. In the immortal words of Rick O'Connell, "here we go again."
