These episodes are getting shorter and shorter.

I freaked out when I saw that helmet. Non-CLONE WARS/REBELS fans just donít understand.

If they're going to bring in more Rebels elements/characters I'm totally on board with that. It was an excellent series that did a lot to expand the Star Wars universe. Especially the Mandalorian aspects.

So far the season is off to a good start. I'm definitely excited to see where things end off this year.

I totally squealed when a certain someone appeared on screen.

And for a "low budget" show, it looked spectacular.

Gonna watch that episode a few more times.

I'm really impressed with the jet pack use and effects. They're seamless, I'm not taken out of the episode at all when used. In story wise, another great tool in Mando's arsenal.

I didnít think this was a low budget show - I thought its average budget
was $10 million per episode. Making it one of the most expensive tv
shows around.

More than that!  It's $15million per episode.  For a TV show, it's very high budget.    I meant low budget relative to a big budget movie which much of the FX team like Knoll, Goodson and Chiang are used to working on.  It looks big budget.  There are obviously a huge number of FX shots.  But even if the episodes were half an hour like the last one, that's only $60M for two hours, which is nothing for a movie, and amazingly cheap for what they are producing.

I couldn't be more impressed.

Ah, I misunderstood you Conrad, apologies.

I agree, the quality is incredible.

Is that galaxy full of planets with monsters? Can they land on a planet with bunnies and kittens?

The galaxy is a dangerous place. That's why this is STAR WARS and not CARE BEARS. That, and bunnies and kittens wouldn't be very exciting.
