I'm not looking for innovation, I'm looking for well told stories. Re-telling a story that has already been told 2,000 times only works well when you put some sort of a fun spin on it that hasn't been done before. But when you do the exact same thing that's already been done, yawn. I get all the callbacks, but they get boring quick. I like these things as occasional "ooh wow what did we just see, was that a chewbacca dance off??" instead of having an entire episode relying on these things to drive what's on screen. That's my main issue with these episodes, they're not especially strong from a storytelling pov. It's like they took the basic idea for the episode and did not expand on it a bit. These episodes seem incredibly basic to me. Take away all the action scenes and the "look at this SW thing!" throwbacks and there isn't really much there.. aside from a small amount of character development, which I see as the only redeeming quality of these filler eps. But there really isn't that much really, so yeah, I get bored Then again, most Star Wars fans seem to be enthralled by seeing all these callbacks to old movies and shows and what not, so clearly these episodes aren't written for people like me. I like the overarching Mandalorian story because it's involved and it's actually a well set up story. These filler episodes just stray from that way too much for me, and like I said I don't care that much to see yoda baking a cake or whatever they'll think to show us next to convince us that we are indeed actually yes, in the Star Wars universe, you see.
