The Mandalorian

So I watched it, and was actually pleasantly surprised to actually enjoy it. Anyone else have a gander yet?

Yep.
Thought it delivered on all fronts.
A better "Star Wars" than the current trilogy.
Second only to Rogue One in the 'post original' line up.

My only problem was I found the music to be a bit.. off... especially the "Beastie-riding" scene...

Other than that - looking forward to more!

Other reviewers have also stated that the music is 'not nearly Williams enough'.

Eh, I'm ok with the music not being Williams, but yeah it does need to find it's feet in that regard a little.

Sheev Palpatine's 'new order' did only last about two decades, yes. Mostly because it was entirely arranged around him as a person and single leading figure.

Now here's a good idea ...

First of all: as far as Hollywood is concerned, Germans may be seconds to only the brits as villains, if at all.

Secondly: ermahgerd I keep forgetting how much I love that velvety voice.

[Gerd Fröbe-voice] No really, Mr Bond? [/Gerd Fröbe-voice]

Have you seen 'Geliebter Feind', his tribute/documentary to Klaus Kinski?

Herzog has the demeanor of a small-town Gymnasium teacher, but by the time he admits to that one night where he grabbed a gun & went to find Kinski, you start to have some serious questions about that harmless facade...

I mean... Kinski was obviously, literally howling, barking mad - but Herzog spent months in the jungle with that madman, and did it twice.

Disney's timeline puts Mandalorian 10 years after ANH.
About 25 years before TFA.

One thing I gotta look into is just what a Mandalorian is. In Knights of the Old Republic is seems like they are a people but more of a conglomerate of people, much like the republic itself. In Clone Wars it's an actual planet and the citizens there are Mandalorians. In this it just seems like a faith or religion

There was the great Mandalorian/Jedi War way back in the time of the Old Republic era games, and the Mandalorian talks about a purge, so maybe now it's more like the Jedi order during the original film years?

Finally watched the first 4 at my cousin's house this weekend. Episode 4 is basically a rehash of the plot of many an American western.

Given that they say in the first episode that the Empire is gone, it's obviously post-RotJ.

From the first trailers, I knew it was going to be a space opera version of the Ennio Morricone westerns! Re-imagining stories from other genres into Space Opera has been the forte of Star Wars from the start!

I'm finally catching up with this series. Loving it of course. Don't really understand the problem people are having with the music though. It's got a solid spaghetti western/scifi vibe.
