I still haven't watched The Mandalorian. Missus RC and I have decided to watch it between RotJ and TFA as part of our chronological saga rematch. (All the epodes should be out by the Rise of Skywalker release, yes?)

I reread our Star Wars thread to put off actual writing. Makes me miss old days GS.

They're doing the one a week thing. The series ends on December 27th.

You don't really need to be too plugged into the chronology. Episode one nods to the fall of the empire in the first 10 minutes, and then it's all space cowboy stuff from there on. (Though I think we're coming back around to the larger fallout from RotJ eventually.)

I miss the old days, too.

Episode 5 seems to be setting up the thing that we all thought they'd be setting eventually but it reeks of "Spock in Discovery" to me.

I'm waiting to watch until I get to see Sirharles on Saturday. But, by comparing it to Discovery, that can only mean that, suddenly, the Mandalorian ended up on the Millennium Falcon and is now an ancillary character as Han and Chewie take them on a journey to visit all of the stars from RotJ and TFA.
