This episode is devoted to wrapping up our coverage of all things Mandalorian (for the time being) including the Book of Boba Fett announcement, Phil Szostak’s The Art of The Mandalorian book, the season two Disney Gallery installment, our favorite “leaked” episode titles and Mando Mondays t-shirts, and great message from D. Hackerson re: Bo Katan, Din, and the dark saber.
Original Blockade Runners Kevin and Dan join Ryan and John for this huge episode covering the mind-blowing season (series?) finale of The Mandalorian. This episode felt like a hugely important moment for the show and for Star Wars in general and we spend close to three hours covering every aspect of its triumphant surprises and implications for the future.
We’re back for the second time in like 36 hours to discuss Mandalorian Ch. 15 “The Believer.” We discuss Rick Famiyuwa’s brilliant writing and direction, Bill Burr’s fantastic performance, Din’s resolute willingness to do whatever it takes to find Grogu, and what may be on the horizon for the show’s characters, including Boba Fett.
Ryan and John dive deep into “The Tragedy” and discuss the episode’s returning characters, intense action, and those darktroopers! We conclude the episode with @NorskAkiruno ‘s insightful take on Mando Ch. 13.
Mando Ch. 13, “The Jedi,” is a massively important episode for the series and for the larger Star Wars galaxy. We dig into its implications for the Mando and the Child, Ahsoka, the future of the series, and the future of Star Wars storytelling going forward.
Ryan and John somehow again spend two hours discussing a 40 minute episode of television…but it’s a pretty good conversation! We discuss the impossible cuteness of The Child, the contrast between the not great real life Gina Carrano and the actually great on screen Cara Dune, what exactly is “the way,” and even strand-casts (whatever those are).
This episode featuers a detailed look at The Mandalorian Chapter 10 – “The Passenger” before wrapping up with short segments on Mando Mondays #2, the full trailer for the Lego Star Wars Holiday special, and Celebration 2020 merchandise.
The Mandalorian season two is here and we dig into its premiere episode, “The Marshall,” in today’s episode. We celebrate our favorite elements, speculate about where the story will head from here, and consider the pros and cons of returning to characters from the past.
Ryan and John share their immediate reactions to the Monday Night Football Mandalorian Season 2 “Special Look” trailer before highlighting a few of their favorite reveals from Pablo Hidalgo’s new Star Wars: Fascinating Facts book.
