    I find it refreshing for now, but I don't think I'd stay interested if that's what the series was for the next couple of years. Even with the template, you can tell more interesting stories. If, in the second or third season, we still get simplistic Star Wars knock-offs of Seven Samurai (it's the simplistic part that bothers me, not the knock-off part), I'm going to start looking for something else. For now, I'm okay with it, though.

    It used to be, long long ago, that science fiction shows would devote their first couple of seasons to light one-off episodes in which audience, actors and writers all got to know the characters together, before launching into the Intense Serious Arcs. (Indeed, there are even whispers that in the Before Time, there were no arcs.)

    It's funny, but is it going to get them off their smartphones?

    Blah. I believe that you can tell better stories in light one-off episodes than The Mandalorian has done. It's a fun show, but its strengths lie elsewhere than in its stories, much of the time. Doesn't mean that the stories and writing couldn't be improved, because I definitely think they're more Saturday morning cartoon than they need to be.

Don't hurt that baby.' And I said, 'I will squash that little big-eared bastard,'" Esposito told IGN

    He, like the rest of us, will squash Baby Yoda with hugs.

    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.

    If they aren't firing, that's as far as a Mando's finger gets from the trigger.

    What a delightful quote.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    As expected, the final season of Clone Wars seems to be focused heavily on the Siege of Mandalore (Republic+Mandalorians against Maul+Mandalorians at the end of the Clone Wars, as in 'Order 66 happens in the middle of things' end). Probably worth catching even if you haven't seen the rest, since there's very little chance they don't take the opportunity to slip in something that is/will be relevant to The Mandalorian.
