Vermonter ~ '20 Si Sedan – '94 Miata – '16 RAV4
Generic Disney clout, I think -- he's a professed SW superfan and they've used him for Star Wars PR on other occasions. He pimped Galaxy's Edge in early previews, did a whole thing with Daisy Ridley on Instagram before TLJ while she was shooting that other movie she was in, etc.so he used his Frozen clout??
who do we think he is? I'm torn between two possibilities.p.s. Watched it again last night and had a couple of other thoughts:
First, it was a little better for me the second time. Mando shooting the pit droids = :thumbup:
I think Amy Sedaris and the young bounty hunter dude were either miscast or badly directed (sorry, Dave). They really take you out of the story. I thought Ming-Na was fine (except, ya know, she didn't do much). I got the same vibe from them that I did the bartender/pub lady in Ep. 4.
How did Mando & the young bounty hunter think they were going to get Fennec Shand back with just the two speeder bikes between them? It's only after they capture her and get back to the bikes that they think, durr, we should've brought a minivan? Running into a stray dewback to provide alt-transport doesn't seem something you should plan on.
Thinking about the payoff for this setting, I'm guessing it's because of the character who shows up in the last scene, assuming he is who we think he is.
Not sure if we're spoiler-safe on this, so highlight to be safe --who do we think he is? I'm torn between two possibilities.
yeah, I wasn't expecting the show to take the procedural route. I assumed the characters we meet would be longer for the ride but it seems like we are getting only one episode and moving on. Unless they plan on using fan favorites in future SW series or movies, I personally don't mind it only because it allows for a bit of variety.Another thing that bothers me is that we keep getting introduced to all of these characters who's story's seem to go nowhere. Normally in a series, you jump around and have scenes away from your major character. I wish we had some scenes that showed the aftermath of Mando stealing back Toyoda and explaining what they were doing with him (cloning?). The first person story telling is just getting a little stale and I want to know what else these characters are up to.
Also, the music is killing me in some scenes. I'm sure they are going for some cheese, but it's a bit much.
