    Yep. For my money, anyway. It's just a combination of nostalgia, seeing it at just the right time as a kid, and hitting all the right notes for my tastes then. I still, to this day, whistle the Will Scarlet rooster song from the beginning. I'm not saying it's the best they've ever done, but it's my fave.

    You learn something new everyday. I like Robin Hood but I can name at least five more movies I like more, like Pinocchio for example. Peter Pan also. Mileage will vary of course.

    Liking the show so far but it feels like they are holding back. Each episode seems too short. The season is going to seem way to short. at 12.5 million per episode (100 million) I know it's a huge financial risk but I hope it remains a hit. I would like to season slightly longer running time and at least 12 episodes next season.

    Disney will make all of that money back in Baby Yoda merchandise alone.

    There is a rumor that there will be a larger connection to the upcoming mini-series about Obi-Wan.

    Watched all five this weekend. Feels like an old western series put in space. I really like Pascal, great choice. Really interesting seeing the the back story Mandolorian tribe stuff. Music is very odd, but it works.

    Great job on the jawas! "You sound like a Wookiee." LOL

    How many other "Yodas" have we seen in the universe, 2-3 total?

    3, total.

    Yoda, Yaddle, and The Child.

    All seem to be natural (and strong) Force users.

    It occurs to me that mystical powers are cool and all that, but apparently they're not getting anyone laid. These Yodas need to spend less time on the Force and more time on the intercourse.

    I'm stunned by how tepid this show is. Feels like Disney gave the writing staff of Xena Warrior Princess the keys to Star Wars and said do whatever you want with it.

    Totally agree. There have been moments of awesome. I still feel like they are playing it safe at times or holding it back. I think it's a great introduction to the world. I can see what they are doing in terms of feeling out the audience in this first season. I expect the show to evolve over time and not every season is going to have a baby "Yoda" in it. I know it's probably a cost issue but the part that keeps bugging me is how short each episode is.

    It feels more like Rogue One than anything else they've done. I don't see that as a negative at all, though. It's neat, IMO, to explore the universe from a smaller POV.
