Let’s Talk: ‘The Mandalorian: Chapter Three’

I was already sold after the first two episodes of The Mandalorian but the third episode only built upon the series’ awesomeness in a truly exciting way that left me truly flabbergasted. After digesting the newest episode I like to share my thoughts, spoilers and all, on that particular episode the following Monday. Well, Monday has arrived, and so…let’s talk.

The Sin

As soon as the name of the chapter popped onto the screen I knew this episode was going to be a lot more serious than the two previous episodes and sure enough, it was. The Mandalorian, fresh off the success of his bounty, has to deliver Baby Yoda to the super wicked ex-Imperial who has something in mind for the super cute green alien.

The Mandalorian’s very own childhood was pretty tragic. Because of this, giving over the child to someone as evil as the ex-Imperial, known only as “The Client” seemed like yes, a sin. So, to get Baby Yoda back, he practically turned into the Star Wars version of Rambo and it was awesome! Continue reading Let’s Talk: ‘The Mandalorian: Chapter Three’

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is Beginning to Lose Steam

As someone who has just finished all four seasons of Star Wars: Rebels (and is currently rewatching my favorite episodes from these four seasons) Star Wars: Resistance pales in comparison. And this week’s episode is not an exception.

For the past few episodes, the story has refrained from Tamora’s side of the story which seemed almost disappointing, considering that her turn to the First Order was one of the most anticipated storylines of this season. However, this episode, Rendezvous Point, brings Tam back into the story and yet I wasn’t excited at all.

My appreciation for this series is starting to lose steam…real fast. Like Resistance Reborn, it almost feels like it’s going to lead to a pointless discovery that will have next to no impact on The Rise of Skywalker.

The characters are annoying me (well except for BB-9E) and the story is becoming less and less interesting with each passing week.

Rendezvous Point introduced Torra’s mother, a pilot for the Resistance, into the story, albeit briefly, and guess what? I didn’t care. What this series is sorely lacking is a sense of peril. With each episode letting its characters off the hook in repetitive ways it feels like I know what to expect every week and that makes an investment in the series very difficult.

Of course, I will continue to watch each episode each week but with The Mandalorian bombarding the world with its awesomeness and my newfound obsession with Star Wars: RebelsStar Wars: Resistance is becoming a series I’ll surely forget in the coming years.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

Episode X: Opening Crawl

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

 

For over a decade a terrible entity known as The Whisper has ruled over the entire galaxy, using fear to quell hope. 

In the wake of her rule, the great heroes of the previous era were lost. The legendary Jedi master Luke Skywalker and beloved Resistance general, Leia Organa, was destroyed in the renown Battle of Carcuun and the survivors went into hiding. Darkness spread and evil prevailed.

Now, after years of hopelessness, a shift has arisen. A new warrior named Ora has risen to take on The Whisper and with a previously hidden weapon of immense power at her disposal, that hope that was once gone could be restored…
