VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian – Episode 2 (with spoilers!)

Episode 2 of the Mandalorian picked right up from where the first episode ended. The bounty must be in high demand as a group of mercenaries try to get the target from the Mandalorian.

Not everyone wants the bounty alive. IG-11 had instructions to kill the target and the mercenaries from this episode were trying to take out the target as well.

In true Mandalorian fashion, he disperses all the attackers. After a quick patch job on himself and his armor, he proceeds to his ship, the Razorcrest. Once he rises over the last hill he notices a clan of Jawas stripping his ship of any sell-able parts.

A kerfuffle ensues as he tries to stop the Jawas and get his parts back. He quickly finds the Jawas Sandcrawler is like a tank and is unable to get inside. He returns to our Ugnaught friend from the first episode who helps him negotiate a barter with the Jawas for the return of his parts.

They come to an agreement that the Jawas will return the parts if the Mandalorian gets them a particular egg. The problem is the big hairy rhino-like creature doesn’t want to give it up.

Long story short, the Mandalorian gets the egg after being beat up pretty bad. We also learn the little Yoda baby has some pretty strong force powers. The Mando gets his parts back, rebuilds the ship with the Ugnaughts help, and leaves the planet… end scene.

This episode was a bit shorter than the first (39 minutes versus 30 minutes). I for one am okay with this. I would rather have a solid 30 minute episode than an hour long episode with useless filler that detracts from the story.

Have you watched both episodes yet? Did you like the second episode as much as the first. Did we miss any Easter eggs? Let us know in the comments.

We have a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian Episode 1

Disney Plus launched November 12th on the back of their exclusive Star Wars based show “The Mandalorian”. With about 10 million subscribers in the first day, I would say it was a good move.

This review is chock full of spoilers. If you haven’t watched the episode yet, do that first. Then come back here and fanboy out with us.

The first episode has lots of references to the other Star Wars properties. It also has some big name cameos. Pedro Pascal plays the title character. At least we think that is him. He never removes his helmet. There is even a little joke about it in the episode.

Carl Weathers portrays a bounty guild admin. He collects the targets from bounty hunters and pays them for their haul. Nick Nolte lent his voice to an Ugnaught that helps the Mandalorian out. Werner Herzog plays someone with a special high price bounty. Taika Waititi gives a great voice performance as IG-11, the bounty hunting droid. There are lots more big names in future episodes.

This first episode really captured the feel of the original trilogy while also developing a new seedy underworld to the Star Wars Universe. The movies have only shown us the big heroes and villains. The Mandalorian is introducing us to all the important players on the fringe of the overarching Star Wars story. We can’t wait for the second episode to be available for streaming so we can geek out some more.

Have you watched the first episode yet? Do you agree with us that it is the shot in the arm that Star Wars needs right now? Let us know in the comments.

We have a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video: TNTM – Our Favorite New TV Shows

There are a ton of great TV series out now on broadcast TV, cable, and streaming services. The only problem is there isn’t enough time to watch them all.

Netflix and Disney are leading the way with their original shows on their streaming services. Disney is pushing out some Star Wars and DC Comics titles that are really looking good.

Netflix is still leading the way with their Marvel Comics related shows, even with the cancellation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

What TV shows are you watching that we didn’t mention. Let us know in the comments so we can add them to our DVR.

Video+Info: TNTM – Star Wars Universe Update

There has been a flurry of activity surrounding the Star Wars Universe ever since Disney purchased them.

They have been putting out about one movie per year since they have taken the helm. The Clone Wars, Rebels, and Resistance have been really solid animated series for Star Wars. They are working on a few original series for the Disney streaming service. There will be a Star Wars Land at Disney Land.

There has been a small hiccup in the domination of all media by Star Wars. It has been announced that Boba Fett and all the other filler movies that were scheduled to air between the major Star Wars releases are put on hold indefinitely.

Other than that, things are looking pretty good for Star Wars in the near future. We can’t wait to see the newest movie and we are already booking our trip to visit Star Wars Land when it opens in Fall 2019.

Are you a Star Wars fan? What are you looking forward to from the Star Wars Universe? Let us know in the comments below.

Video: TNTM – Star Wars The Mandalorian by Jon Favreau

Disney is starting their own streaming service. They will be pulling all their old titles under the streaming service eventually when broadcast contracts expire.

Disney will also be developing original content for their streaming service. One of those shows will be “The Mandalorian” directed by Jon Favreau. Disney is throwing a lot of money at this project and Favreau is a proven director, so we have high hopes for this series.

For those not steeped in all things Star Wars, Mandalorians are what Jango & Boba Fett are. They are a legendary race of warriors originating from the planet Mandalore and it’s moon, Concordia.

Jon Favreau’s Mandalorian will be Lucasfilm’s first live-action Star Wars television show. It is set during the years between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order. The Mandalorian should be a good gap filler between the major Star Wars movie releases.

The only negative is it will only be available on the Disney Play streaming service. That will require the purchase of another streaming service membership.

Are you looking forward to the Mandalorian? Let us know in the comments.
