    Looks interesting at least. I'm cool that it's not Boba Fett, but some other Mando. Hopefully it turns out well.

    Just finished the first episode (can't binge watch as they are only releasing one episode at a time). It was good. Look forward to seeing the rest.

    Big fan of the first episode, a lot of little nods to the movies and a ton of attention to detail. Love it so far.

    First episode was decent. I like the tone. Feels like old school Star Wars from the outset. I am curious though if there is going to be a real overarching arc or if this is going to be "arc light" and more episodic as it unfolds. The reveal at the end was pretty cool and I am hoping that goes somewhere verses just a nod.

    I read some fan speculation that the reveal in EP 1 may have something to do with Palpatine and Rise of Skywalker. That's all I'll say...you can find it online, if you want to read more.

    We signed up for D+ and The Mandalorian was the first thing we watched. We enjoyed the first episode quite a bit.

    I think I know what your referencing.

    If you are referencing the "researching" Yoda's species to prolong the Emperor's life that is possible. Although the current implication is that the Emperor knows how to create life from his master. Then there are the other Sith lore stories out there that says the Emperor can embody another "vessel". The first thing that came to mind for me is something much simpler.

    Yoda is probably considered the most power Jedi to ever live. Maybe Yoda's species can channel the force better than anyone. Knowing how powerful Yoda is, the Emperor could raise someone from his race to wield the power of the dark side. If he created "skywalker" or "Rey" clones as his foot soldiers while using this "baby" as his apprentice? I can't imagine a more terrifying thing for the Emperor to do.

    Episode 1 Review:

    1st act was a total slog, 2nd act was boring, 3rd act was good.

    The end.

    I've been slagging off Disney + because they're not Netflix dropping shows, instead trickling them out once a week. If you're like me and the Mandalorian and new Marvel shows are all you care about, it's pretty bad of a ripoff. Just wait for them all to be out to watch.

    But...BUT...I learned a get a free year with FIOS. So now I'm in :)

    Best Disney movie ever.
