    Re: Tracking Fobs

    I'm guessing they've decided to split up the tracking part of being a bounty hunter to a separate role within the guild. I'm guessing it goes like this:

    - Someone puts a bounty on a person's head
    - Guild sends a tracker who finds them and places a tracking device on them
    - The tracking fob is sent back to the guild at which point the puck becomes available for hunting.

    So they can put a tracking device on them but they can't just put a tiny bomb on them?

    I bet we find out next episode that everyone's midichlorians emit a unique signature that can be felt through the force and the little fobs are attuned to that signal.

    Collateral damage?

    Also, I guess there should always be the option to bring them in either warm or cold. I'm assuming these trackers aren't skilled enough to bring people in warm.

    Why wouldn't you just work together simultaneously instead of making two separate trips after them? The process of finding these people and tagging them without getting murdered seems like the hard part, or are there just scores of these people being murdered in Cantinas.

    "Hey you all seen Jeff the Pirate? I'm looking for him for...reasons." If you're skilled or intimidating enough to not get killed after that then you're probably in the clear. Or if you're infiltrating a secure compound, planting the device, and exfiltrating yourself, you're probably good enough to just stun them and leave WITH them. Or plant a bomb on them, leave a comlink behind and after you leave tell them to rendezvous at a point alone later or you'll detonate the bomb.

    The hunting part of bounty hunting seems like the hardest part with an entire galaxy to hide out in. If you can do that you can probably finish the job.

    Rewatching the first episode and I think the music may be my favorite thing about it. The Wild West angle is obvious, but they've got it mixed in so perfectly with spacey synth material. Not to mention that it's actually completely new music and not just more material spun off from the original John Williams score; they're really setting their own atmosphere here and on their own terms, but without dumping on the old material.

    So far this one episode of The Mandalorian has been better than all of the TLA-generation movies.

    Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.

    So we're dealing with at least three factions.
    The people who were guarding the infant.
    Herzog's crew: "alive or proof of death."
    Iggy's client wanted it dead.
    if the baby is a good guy, then the group guarding the baby were good guys, and we just watched the mandalorian wreck a whole barracks of good guys

    Thats not necessarily true,
    Prisoners have people guarding them, too.

    They need people to
    make sure the baby is kept away from bright light, never made wet and never, ever be fed after midnight.

    General spoilery thoughts:
    - baby yoda, I don't get it. Like all of Yoda's race aren't force sensitive are they? If not, then it's just a baby yoda, unless it's a clone, in which case there's still no guarantee it's a full on force sensitive even as a clone unless we're actually coming back to midichlorians

    - IG(by goes down) was awesome. That robot was baller and I've been wanting to see what a good IG88 would look like non animated. There's got to be more, I mean robots wouldn't care about credits, so likely there's a guy that just has an army of robots he sends out to get bounties right?

    - The armor scene kind of really got to me, like the simplicity of "this is what's left of our culture" really hit hard.

    - Could have done without the weird dino frog training montage.

    - LOVED that an entire episode made no reference to the force, jedi, the rebellion, etc. It's just "this is the world post empire, kind of the same as it was before, but now stormtroopers can just be hired as private guards"

    - for their flagship launch show the SFX weren't bad but it was on par with a good agents of shield imo. I was expecting a little more from a company with Disney's resources.

    My understanding is that
    Yoda's species is exceptionally rare. So rare it doesnt even have a name. Something that rare would be quite valuable with or without force powers.

    But the only two we have ever seen of the Yodas (Yodi?) were both on the Jedi council, so it is possible they are all force users.

    The droid designation their was IG11 and we see the same droid in the show splash image so
    I think it's pretty much guaranteed we're gonna see more of that droid model. Doesn't seem like it was a top-of-the-line model, either; it was pretty dumb for it to walk right up to the compound and announce itself, and it would've handily been pasted if the Mando hadn't been there.

    I would expect we're going to see more advanced IG droids as the show progresses.

    Loved the initial banter between the Mando & the droid - neat transition from 'taciturn gunslinger' to 'irritated, but more talkative' during the gunfight.

    The droid being a bit prissy and wanting to talk about getting all of the reputation from the heist mid-gunfight was great, as was the continued insistence at activating the suicide protocol as well. This was great. Great exposition without beating it over anyone's head - Imperial Credits are on the way out, the Stormtroopers being twitchy and their gear being beat up was great, too. Loved the Mon Calamari flan. Money that squishes, ick.

    Agree regarding the Blerb (sp?) training montage, but it was a pretty minor one in an otherwise well put together and well shot production. Looking forward to more!

    I think the training scene was important to establish culture as the motivator for this particular Mando. You got the ground work laid with the armor scene, but he flat out did not give a fuck about the fat t-rexes until the dude name dropped the old stories, then he was all business.

    It shows his motivation, but also a vulnerability that can be pushed later to compel him to do something not in his own best interest.

    What I'm wondering is if they're gonna go some sort of Yoda reincarnation route or if this is just another extremely rare individual of Yoda's species. Also, how the heck do they know about whoever this lil guy is anyway?

    Blurrg!

    This is actually not the first time that they've been shown, although obviously the first time in live-action. I kinda like that they used an existing thing instead of making something up.

    There's also a pistol named after them in Battlefront 2. I remember it being OP as hell on launch.

    Pretty sure that Mandalorian culture thing has already been used to trap him. He wouldn't even take Imperial credits, but an obvious Imperial with Stormtrooper guards waves beskar under his nose with the promise of more and the Mando jumps right in, no questions asked.

    I don't see the connection. Would you be looking to take CSA script in 1866? The empire is defunct, what could their credits be worth? Besker, now, that's a commodity with inherent value, beyond what Mando's cultural history has.

    yeah, Mando wasn't turning his nose up at imperial currency as some moral stand against the empire. It just isn't worth as much anymore and is probably consistently declining in value. That he took half the amount in a more stable valuable currency tells us that.

    I think he's saying that the Mandalorian has already taken a job that will end up going poorly for him because of the promise of boatload of besker. I assumed that it was just because of the relative value initially as well but the armor forging scene that follows made it pretty clear to me it was the culture not the cash

    So I know this a new show and all, but can we officially dispense with the spoilers here? I don't know if there's a particular rule for spoilers in the thread and new shows, I'm just wondering because it's obnoxious diving through all these spoilers when, presumably, we've all seen the show at this point. If we're going to spoiler stuff about the show we should probably spoiler things over in the Star Wars thread, not here in the actual thread for the show.

    First of all, no, stuff in Star Wars can just float. They have the technology. Like twelve things in this first episode were just floating for instance. But, yes, I think baby Yoda is presumably force sensitive. I imagine everyone isn't going nuts about the kid just because it's cute.

    Based on every race in Star Wars is pigeonholed into what the audience's first impression is
    And the fact that all 3 Yodas seen to date were Jedi Masters, it's pretty safe to assume that baby will be able to train Jedi in 50ish years.
