I'm sure I can get this answered from teh Googlez, and it's probably a dumb question to begin with...... but do we automatically get Disney+ with our Fire Stick, or do I have to do something magical to sign up?

Footnote:  I never use the Fire Stick and I hardly even watch my "big" TV in the living room, thanks to the kids and my wife :lol:    .... I have an extra TV in the "office" that I watch 99.9% of the time.

I still can't believe the guy from Swingers has made my favorite Christmas movie....develop/built my 2d favorite movie franchise.... and saved my favorite franchise... Favreau is so money and he

Also the Lady Expendables were awesome. Because they were just awesome. They didn't tell us they were awesome. They didn't have other people go "wow look how awesome they are". They were all individua

Mark Hamill @HamillHimself The fact that we were able to keep my involvement a secret for over a year with no leaks is nothing less than a miracle. A real triumph for spoiler-haters everywhe

It started off great and it ended great, but there was a lot of bad in the middle.

1. The blurrg bronco-busting was stupid and pointless. The CGI was awful. I have spoken.

2. How much demand could there be for a taxi stand in the middle of nowhere on an ice planet?

3. Why wouldn't landspeeders on an ice planet have enclosed passenger compartments?

4. What's up with the tracker fobs? Does everyone on every planet get a tracking chip implanted at birth?

Yeah the tracker fobs are dumb.  They could have came up with some better bounty hunting tactics than that.  Seems lazy

One of those things I just go with. It’s dumb if you talk it out but needed for the show.

It looked awesome, they need to get some Star Wars background music though.

It's going to be a good show.  Not a bad pilot episode.  Been waiting 40 years for something like this.  It's about damn time.  Here Disney, take my money imo.

Every Friday through the last Friday of the year. Ep2 tomorrow. 
 

I don’t know a time specifically. I’d guess midnight eastern.

I know. I get why they are doing it but if all episodes were available I would have knocked them out in two nights. 

Yup.  I mentioned it in another thread (I think), but a lot of the newer streaming services have said they will go back to releasing them like shows now.  They didn't like the fact that a season could take 1 1/2 to make, then they put it out and everyone watches it all in one night.  Then the next day, Twitter is on fire asking when the "new" season will be out.

Oh, and when I saw Nick Nolte's name in the credits, I can honestly say I didn't know who he was.  Which character was he?  I looked up in IMDB but didn't recognize the name.  Was he the guy who taught him how to ride?  Because that guy looked like Jax's dad from SOA.  

I have spoken.

Agreed. It needs some John Williams score.

Watched it with my son and we both thought it was great. That IG-droid was as good as anything I've seen in the Star Wars universe. A Nick Nolte ugnaught. And the ending was just icing on the cake.

The incessant complaining on this board about movies and TV shows. How do you guys get through the day without ending it all?

Almost as bad as people complaining about other people voicing an opinion about a movie or TV show.

Second episode only 30 minutes <_<

What?  That's odd.  Although Netflix had some like that, too.  I think it was Mindhunters, season 1.  Every episode was like 64 minutes long except one that was 40 minutes long.

Nick Nolte's voice, yes.

I'm in. The family thoroughly enjoyed it, silly scenes and all. Very interested in learning more about the Mandalorian's and their mythology, though it seems odd that Favreau made never taking off their helmets a thing. Jango Fett didn't seem to mind taking off his helmet and having kids run around with helmets seemed off. Plus in the flashbacks of our title character it appeared both he and his parents were helmetless? Is he not a true Mandalorian?

I agree with all of that, but I liked the feel of the show and thought it was overall good.  It is like a Clint Eastwood western but in Star Wars. 
 

I think it lacks some emotional connection with not ever seeing Pascal’s facial expression, but that seems like part of the story. I am told he literally wore the suit once during the entire shoot.

Fett was not a Mandalorian. 
 

i would think Favreau would maybe use the same technique from Iron Man to connect with the character behind the mask, but I guess he wanted something different.

But in the cartoon series (not Clone Wars, but the other one), they seemed to take their helmets off all of the time.

Not even close to being as bad

Love The Mandalorian so far.  This is the kind of shows I was hoping for - a show as good and in the same style as the movies.  I hope they make Marvel and Pixar shows in the same style as those movies too.

No surprise, but I appear to be in the minority here.  I think it's OK, but nothing I am chomping at the bit to get the next episode for every week.  I guess I had higher hopes that we would be seeing different parts of the galaxy, different planets, a lot more species etc.. to go along with this new character.   Just feel like it's spinning it's wheels a bit as we rehash Tatooine and Jawas and little green jedi wizards and smart talking droids.  Also a little surprised at how short these episodes are.  

Definitely room to expand and improve, but it hasn't completely blown my hair back yet.  

(take it for what it's worth, since I don't seem to love most TV shows as much as the masses do) :shrug:

Just watched episode two. I don't know...seems sort of slow and kind of boring. I also agree about the helmet. It's kind of annoying me he never takes it off. I think I agree it takes away an emotional connection to the character. There are things to like of course. Nostalgia like the Jawas. You kind of saw baby Yoda using the force coming.

It’s only been 2 episodes and one was over an hour :confused:  also - there’s plenty of time for it to go in a lot of directions.

I do agree with everyone else on the music though

Its only 8 episodes too, right? 

I could be wrong, but thought Ep1 was 40mins, and Ep2 30 mins.

After two episodes this is better than any of the sequels.

I posted that after episode one.  After episode 2 I like it more.  It's pretty good

Yeah episode 2 was shorter.  Hopefully there will be some longer ones
