Haven't seen it yet but when was the last time a star wars fan didnt overhype everything star wars while jizzing all over themselves? The most annoying fan base of anything to ever exist.
Doh muh gawd, did you see da lite sabers go voom?
I'm a Star Wars fan.
In '77 when the originals came out I was in love. I think for 2 months straight I went to the theatre with my friends every week to watch the first one.
So the original series of 4,5, and 6 were my faves when I was a kid.
I HATED that Lucas decided to f*ck with them and add these new ideas and moments to them. Mother of god I swear that HAN SHOT FIRST! But despite the small changes I still loved those original series.
Then the prequels came out and I hated those hot steaming piles of sh*t. It was killing the idea imo.
Then Disney bought them and they slightly improved the storytellings and the action wasn't all CGI anymore and it wasn't based on toys and merch as much previously imo but the god awful SJW influence was terrible.
But the Mandalorian...it felt like when I was a kid again. That's the feeling I got watching this show. Sure there is stuff that is predictable, and it's not always the greatest acting, but there is something about it that brings me back to that time when I was a kid and nothing was being shoved down my throat and I was able to just enjoy what was in front of me as a fun ride to watch. In fact, it reminds me of the old serials, like the shadow or the green hornet. Sure they are contrived and time boxed, but that is what makes them fun too.
