Heck yeah! That’s my review of this week’s episode. I’m just kidding. I have more to say than that, of course, but those two words are the underlying current of my feeling about this finale for The Mandalorian.
Last Friday at this time I was sitting at home trying to figure out what I had just witnessed. The Rise of Skywalker was a snowball effect of indecision and fan-service, culminating into a supposedly lovable but ultimately horrendous mess.
This Friday, after watching the finale of The Mandalorian, my faith in Star Wars has been restored. You know, the thought of taking a break from the movies for a little while sounds like a good idea because this show has been fantastic, from beginning to end. Packed full of surprises and debuting one of the greatest fictional characters ever in Baby Yoda, The Mandalorian had every chance to turn south and become a boring mess but guess what? It didn’t!
This finale had everything to offer in a concise way that left me just that much more disappointed with The Rise of Skywalker. But off of the more depressing side of Star Wars, live-action Star Wars shows are awesome!
Next up, in two months we get The Clone Wars. Let’s do this!
I’m giving this episode a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars and 95 out of 100. A great finale for a great show.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day. May the Force be with you.
