I found it okay, but had some similar feelings as you.....I didn't like E1 last week. It was another boring quest episode that literally put me to sleep. E2 on the other hand was a lot of fun last night and a good episode. Hopefully we'll get more of that for the rest of the season.
Most fans don’t want a retcon. Those are beyond stupid 99% of the time and don’t work. Disney has never committed to or mentioned anything about it. That’s all fan fodder by the loudest fans.E3 was as bad as E2 was great. That was a snoozefest. I wouldn't have mind the detour to Coruscant if the writing and acting weren't so wooden and there was a good purpose to it. But there isn't. This episode felt like garbage left over from the Obi-wan series in its feel and tone.
The episode gets even worse once you realize that the reason for it is that they're setting up justification for things in the Disney trilogy. We're not going to get the retcon that fans want. They're locking it in. This might kill the show for me.
And E4's sidequest was really stupid. If the next episode doesn't turn things around a little bit then I'm tapping out after 3 of the 4 episodes being duds.Why? It’s a listless story, with very little forward thrust, Mando has been consistently sidelined and there’s no antagonist to speak of.
And the writing is Xena: Warrior Princess level bad.
The side episode just seemed forced for sure. I hope they are setting something up in later episodes or that will just seem more out of place by the end of the season.And E4's sidequest was really stupid.

The kid is in mortal danger so you camp out over night and take your sweet time climbing up. That foundling would have been dead before the rescue party even left the camp.
The bird is also a know predator to them that has picked off kids before but you don't set up my defense or precautions for it? Just like the gator in e1. The Mandalorians aren't too bright.
Why?Ahmed Bests cameo as a Jedi in last night's episode was freaking epic.
Because it was some redemption for the Ahmed Best after the heat he took playing Jar Jar.Why?
That whole sequence was lame also. The greatest warriors in the entire universe are taken out by can’t shoot straight Stormtroopers? Talk about letting down on what should have been an epic showdown between Vader and the remaining Jedi. Just continues to make the Jedi look pathetic when all was said and done.
Okay… but you’d hope the Mandalorian myth was actually interesting. Everything they’ve done with the Mandos outside of Mando and Starbuck paints them as complete and utter morons.Because they are diving into the Mandolorian mythos which is what Star Wars fans have been asking to see for decades.
I love the Bo-Katan stuff but it better lead somewhere. I have a feeling it might be tied to the Mandolorian movie just announced. In terms of the last episode? I love Jack Black and Christopher Lloyd but that entire episode was cringe until the end.This season of the Book Of Bo-Katan with cameo appearances/storylines for Mando/Grogu is really bad. A far cry from Season 2 of Mando.
