    Excellent start to the new season. It's going to be over so fast and then we're screwed. :pullhair:

    I really liked the second episode. Seemed to be different setting then all the others as he wasn't placed into a setting where he has to save the village/town like he does on every other episode. This one seemed more Star Wars-ish..

    That was my first thought. Good think I'm not paying (friend shared their account) just to watch this. Only other thing I've watched on Disney+ is the Smithsonian channel.

    I actually think this entire season feels more star warsish.

    Do I have to watch All of season 1 to get into Season 2 or will I be totally lost? Thought season 1 was such a slog... felt like Xena Warrior Princess quality Star Wars to me.

    I feel like most episodes are self-contained and you could still enjoy it, but there is an underlying theme/motivation that would be easily misunderstood or missed without all of the context. Plus, you know it takes a new series, especially sci-fi, some time to become 'great.' I'll point to ST: TNG as an example.

    Maybe it's just a matter of taste and fandom -- I loved all of Mando S1, but I am a Sci-Fi nerd in every way.

    And yeah, just like puckhead said, there is a certain overall arc that S1 lays out that leads into this season's arc that might be necessary to create the overall context.

    It's not like it's a lot of lengthy episodes either. Eight episodes and all less than an hour each with the longest being 46 minutes and that was the very action-packed season finale.

    @cheesebeef For season 1 you probably only need to watch episodes 1, 3, 7, and 8 to get the overall arc.

    And honestly they're almost not needed so far for S2. S2 has mainly been side quests so far but I think that'll change a little bit in the next couple of episodes. So far the E3 has been the only one that's added anything and it was mainly the introduction of a character.

    I’d say watch them. There are recurring characters. S1 def a bit of a slog. Just have to kinda try to forget it’s Star Wars. But S2, imo, is real Star Warsy. Much better imo. And ep4 picks up from S1 storylines that seemed forgotten.

    I'm only in it for Baby Yoda, lol. And only a 35minute episode?!? With half of that being shoot 'em up, crash'em up scenes.

    FYI, Yoda died about five years before the Mandolorian timeline in ROtJ and supposedly 'The Child' is ~50 years old. So, not 'baby' Yoda and probably not a reincarnation due to the time mismatch. Cloning, however, is still very much on the table as a possibility.

    I don’t think anyone actually thinks it’s Yoda as a baby or yoda’s baby. It’s just that we don’t know the name of the creatures that are Yoda or the child so people took to calling it baby Yoda.

    My experience is quite different in that I rarely find someone who doesn't think it's young Yoda unless they're big SW fans. I don't judge, but I've taken it upon myself to right this wrong in the World. Don't @ me. :p
