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.

VLog: TNTM review of The Mandalorian – Episode 3 (w/spoilers)

Episode 3 of the Mandalorian had such a Nerdtastic moment that it almost brought tears to our eyes. The Mando delivered the asset and collected his payment of a buttload of Beskar steel.

BTW, pay attention to that scene, the camtono is a throwback reference to Willrow Hood running through Bespin carrying that same type of safe.

The Mando takes the Beskar to their hideaway. Some of the Mandos don’t like the fact he worked with some remnants of the Empire since they are the ones responsible for them having to hide. There is a little scuffle, but they decide they are on the same side and make peace. The blacksmith/armorer agrees to make the Mando a new breastplate to replace the one that was thrashed by the mudhorn. He wears his new Beskar armor to get his new bounty target. All the other bounty hunters are jealous of his big payday.

long story short, he has second thoughts about turning over the baby Yoda. He goes all John Wick on the stormtroopers guarding the location. He grabs baby Yoda and heads back to his ship.
Unfortunately that sets off all the bounty hunters tracking fobs and they head him off in the street. He does a pretty good job of holding them off for a while. Just when it looks like he is penned down with no hope… The rest of the Mandos show up to rescue him. You see jetpack Mandos, heavy artillery Mandos, and every other conceivable type of Mando. They clear the way for him to get to his ship.

Greef Carga gets the drop on the Mando in his ship, but is quickly shot out of the back hatch. As the Mando is flying away one of the jetpack Mandos flies next to him like the Rocketeer, salutes him, and leaves.

This episode, while short, was packed with great storytelling and awesome action. When the jetpack Mandos made an appearance I had a Clone Wars flashback. The story should really start picking up on action now since EVERY bounty hunter in the universe should be coming after him. Maybe we will start to see some of the big name bounty hunters make appearances.
