VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian – Episode 8 (w/spoilers)

Episode 8 was a great way to end the season. A few questions were answered, but now we have a lot more.

We learn that Cara Dune’s middle name is Cynthia and Greef is a disgraced Magistrate. We also find out the Mandalorian’s name is Din Djarin. IG-11 proves that Kuill’s programming was top notch. He takes out the two biker scouts that kidnapped Little Yodes. He then proceeds to race through town on the speeder bike taking out troopers along the way.

IG-11 reunites with Greef, Cara, and Mando with Little Yodes in tow. They are able to escape through the sewers. Mando leads them to the Mandalorian hide-a-way hoping they will escort them out to the ship only to find a stack of armor.

The Blacksmith is there melting down the armor from the fallen Mandos so they can reforge it into armor for other Mandos in the future. She tells the group to restock on weapons and ammo and go out through the lava river to get to their ship. After they leave the Blacksmith some Imperial troops try to question her, but she dispatches them quickly with nothing more than her blacksmithing tools.

Mando’s group discovers an ambush of troopers waiting for them at the exit of the underground lava river. IG-11 makes the ultimate sacrifice by self destructing in the midst of the troopers to clear the way for Mando’s group.

Just when you thought they were good to go, Moff Gideon swoops in with his TIE fighter to try to stop them. Mando uses his newly acquired jetpack to plant thermal detonators on the TIE fighter which grounds Moff Gideon.

Greef and Cara decide to stay on Nevarro and keep running the Bounty Hunters guild. Mando and Little Yodes take off in the Razorcrest to find where to return Yodes to his people. You think that is the end…. but no. The Jawas are scavenging Moff Gideon’s wrecked TIE fighter when you see a black blade cut through the side. Moff Gideon steps out of the TIE fighter holding what appears to be the Dark Saber.

If you don’t know what the Dark Saber is you can watch Clone Wars or take the quick way and Google it. The Mandalorian is giving us a great Star Wars story without relying on big name character cameos. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a ton of easter eggs and references to other Star Wars stuff though. So far, season 1 seems to have balanced out the new characters and story-line with just the right amount of pandering to the fans.

Have you watched all the episodes yet? What did you think about the this fourth episode? Did we miss any Easter eggs? Let us know in the comments.

VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian – Episode 7 (w/spoilers)

Episode 7 reunites Mando with a lot of the characters we’ve met in earlier episodes. Now you know why the character building episodes were thrown into the season. It starts with a message from Greef Karga that he wants Mando’s help to get rid of the Imperial presence on his planet.

Ever since Mando took off with Little Yodes, the former Empire has been coming there in large numbers. That is making it difficult for the Bounty Hunters Guild to do business. If he helps get rid of the former Imperials, Greef will clear his name so he doesn’t have to keep running.

Mando is pretty sure it’s a trap, but he doesn’t really have many options. His first stop is to enlist the help of Cara Dune. Cara is not too hyped to help until she learns it is against the former Empire. Next they talk to Kuill. That’s when they find out the Ugnaught picked up the IG-11 droid that Mando blasted in episode 1. The IG-11 droid was re-programmed to serve and protect rather than hunt and destroy.

Mando meets up with Greef and his crew outside the city. They camp overnight before heading into the city to trick the Imperial client and kill him. During the night they are attacked by some flying creatures that end up poisoning Greef. Little Yodes is able to Force-heal him. In the morning they proceed to the city.

Once at the city limits, Greef spins around and shoots the two bounty hunters he brought with him. He lets Mando know the original plan was to jump him there and take his body and Little Yodes to the Imperial client. He had a change of heart when Little Yodes saved his life.

So, new plan is to bring Mando in cuffed with the little child carrier empty. Kuill is secretly sent back to the Razorcrest with Little Yodes. Once they get in front of the client, Mando is to shoot him. Then they hope the mercenaries will all leave since their paycheck has been killed. The plan might have worked if not for another Imperial bad guy showing up The client receives a call from Moff Gideon. He lets him know he is there for Little Yodes. His Death Troopers fill the place with laser fire killing the client and his Stormtroopers. When Mando peeks outside he sees the Death Troopers and a bunch of personnel carriers delivering more troops.

Then you see and hear the TIE Fighter. The coolest TIE Fighter I’ve ever seen lands and Moff Gideon gets out. Mando breaks radio silence and tells Kuill to get back to the ship quickly and take off without them. Unfortunately that message was intercepted and a coupla biker scouts cut him down within eyesight of the Razorcrest. They scoop up Little Yodes and head back to the city.

The episode ends with Mando, Greef, and Cara pinned down in the building. Kuill is presumably dead and we don’t know what the re-programmed IG-11 is up to. There is much despair for Mando right now. There is one episode left in season one. We can’t wait to see how they get out of this predicament and leave us wanting more in season 2.

VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian – Episode 4 (w/spoilers)

Episode 4 was a little slower than the previous 3 episodes, but it did fill in a lot about the Mandalorian. It was verified that he does in fact remove his helmet, but only when alone. That means no one has seen his face since he was a child taken in by the Mandos.

The Mandalorian finds a very backwater planet that doesn’t even have a spaceport to hide out. He runs into Cara Dune (Gina Carano), an ex Rebel shock trooper who is also hiding out on the planet.

They get into a bit of a tussle (Cara Dune appeared to be winning) before they join forces to help a small local group of farmers to defeat a raiding clan of Klatooinians. Those Klatooinians have some big firepower in the form of an up-armored AT-ST. They took a somewhat goofy looking vehicle that the Ewoks made short work of, and turned it into a really evil looking killing machine.

Long story short, the farmers win and The Mandalorian is thinking about staying in the village with Baby Yoda. That is, until a bounty hunter tries to sniper Baby Yoda (He deserves his own name, so let’s call him Little Yodes). The Mando then realizes he has to stay on the run and take Little Yodes with him to keep him safe.

If you watch the credits you’ll notice Bryce Dallas Howard (daughter of Ron Howard aka Opie aka Richie Cunningham) directed this episode. She did a pretty decent job of capturing the human emotions side of the Mandalorian.
