Just watched the finale. Pretty humorous at times. I thought the season was decent.

With the entirety of the first season finally done and watched...

I really enjoyed it. It scratched an itch for me that I wasn't even consciously aware I had... A return to the overall tone of the original Star Wars movies.

I'm having a difficult time articulating my thoughts here, but those original stories left a lot unsaid and unexplained. The characters didn't get ( or need ) much backstory - if any at all. Some things were ultimately fleshed out ( Luke and Vader for example ). Others were hinted at ( Obi Wan's backstory ). Some we were simply left to wonder about ( WTF is a Wookie? Who the Hell was Han - really - and where did he come from? Etc ).

In 2019 movies don't trust us enough, any more, to leave things unexplained or ambiguous. If Episode 4 were made today we'd learn that Luke was Vader's son, that Vader was actually a former Jedi named Anakin who fell due to love and fear and that Han was a lovable scoundrel who'd act tough but will always come through... And we'd know these things in the first 2 minutes.

The Mandalorian played out in that old way. It let us wonder and only filled in blanks when and where necessary. IMO just often enough to pay off with a few fleeting moments of true joy over small revelations.

Good stuff. Simple story told with moments of scifi awe and spectacle, enough camp to cause a smile or two every soo often and without trying to shove all of the lore down ones throat.

Episode 8 has sold me on it. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but this is definitely Star Wars done right.

So what makes blasters so inaccurate?

Is it all skill?

Everyone just sucks for the most part and occasionally you get sharpshooters?


I liked how they made fun of that, but still I always wondered about that, all these damn cloned soldier cant hit the broadside of a barn!
