    I would curse you for spoiling that (I clicked the spoiler without thinking so its my own fault anyway:p) but I can't even be mad at you, since my kids already spoilered me... they've already watched the whole Season 2 and they were watching while I was giving them dinner one night and I caught a glimpse before I could tell them to pause so they wouldn't spoil it for me... too late :lol:

    As a funny aside... now that they've seen that... their beaks are wet for more, so they've started watching The Clone Wars series :D

    Planet Earth. Possibly.
    Without even checking online for the running-order, I was certain of which episode you meant when you mentioned it earlier.

    And did you also happen to notice the (sur)name of the actor who played the Spear-wielding Magistrate...? (I would be very surprised if you didn't!)

    I did. I didn't recognize her while I was watching the episode, but I did catch the name in the credits and said, "Whoa, wait, back up the train."

    Just finished episode 5... Wow :eek: what a treat!

    I am geeking out of my mind right now from that :love: :bounce:

    Also... I never knew how amazingly strong Beskar was until the last two episodes. No wonder its so precious to the Mandalorians. It reminds me of vibranium from the MCU.

    I'd forgiven all the sins of the PT after seeing Rogue One... I've now forgiven all the sins of the ST seeing that episode.:D

    For a second I thought you were talking about Star Wars episode 5. and I was like.. "I wish I could watch that for the first time again"

    So, like, these stills look straight out of an fan film? I mean the costumes, tippy top, but the image quality... gosh, guess it really shows you the limitations of shooting against LED screens.

    I saw s1 e1 when they had it on free TV to promote Disney+. That's about the extent of my engagement with The Mandalorian.

    I guess I will wstch it eventually.

    I just like to be fashionably late.

    I hope that was a cool excuse.

    Tonight, I finally finished Season 2 of "The Mandalorian". I am floating on a cloud of Star Wars fandom bliss.:) And that is despite the fact that my kids, having watched it before me, spoiled the two biggest reveals of the season.

    I won't spoil for others, but I will say that this show really should have been done instead of the ST... this was the sequel that the fans wanted... but as I've said... its so awesome that all is forgiven.

    I’m going to be honest, but I was skeptical when I heard about...
    Spoiler :
    Luke Skywalker coming to rescue the Mandalorian and pick up Baby Yoda
    . I had to watch it myself.

    To be honest, it sort of renewed my interest in Star Wars a little bit.

    Spoiler :
    I wish we could have a TV series about Luke's life in between episodes 6 and 7. It seems that there isn't really much they could do, even if they could make deepfake technology good & cheap enough to make it work. But I bet we'll get a cartoon at some point? It just seems like a part of the lore that fans want to see.[\spoiler]

    Awful, isn't it? It's not as if anybody who actually watched Disney Channel shows could have predicted it… oh wait.

    What part of "all is forgiven" do you not get? ;)

    *rereads thread* No. Making Sith Zombies and Leia Poppins and the Dyad in the Force and writing out the freaking Yuuzhan Vong should be neither forgotten nor forgiven.

    There are Dark Side zombies in Jedi: Fallen Order, and Bastila's whole schtick with Revan (and Kreia's with Mettra Surik) is that they have a Force bond with each other. The Force Dyad is just a canonical evolution of that.
