The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian follows the tales of a nameless Mandalorian (the same race as Boba Fett) in a post-Empire era of Star Wars. Like the famous Boba Fett, this Mandalorian is a bounty hunter, and although quite skilled, he's much younger than Fett and perhaps more open to change.

I'm two episodes in and the show has been solid. It does not exactly "feel" like Star Wars in the sense that there's a lack of free-wheeling camp that defined the original trilogy, but as far as live-action SW properties go, this is the best thing since Return of the Jedi.

I don't want to call it "faithful", because the prequels had the spirit of the originals but were simply bad movies. This looks, sounds, and plays like Star Wars but feels just a tad off. But that still puts it far closer than the Abrams films, Rogue One and Solo.

We'll see where this goes. If the story stays grounded, as part of a side-story, it could be the best SW-related cinematic product in 30 years.
