  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    -------------------------------------

    Discussion of New Episodes - Rules
    (1) One of the mods will post each week's episode thread a few days before it airs on Disney+.

    (2) Discussion in the actual episode thread will be limited to that specific episode, NOT future episodes; past episodes may be referenced.

    (3) The Mandalorian episodes air on Friday* on Disney+. Anyone who shares plot details about an episode before then must use spoiler tags. After that folks will begin discussing their reviews and thoughts which will likely include spoilers. To anyone concerned about being spoiled before watching the episode it is your responsibility to avoid the thread until you have had your chance to view.

    (4) Spoilers like character deaths, appearances, and major plot details must be spoiler tagged in the new episode thread prior to the episode television air date.

    (5) Do not post any preview video clips from the individual episode in the episode threads.

    (6) Official episode commentary may be posted in this episode thread.

    (7) Do not discuss future episodes in here.

    (8) Reviews for each episode may be posted once they have aired. One of the mods will add a grading poll to that episode's discussion thread.

    *All episodes premiere on Friday except for the premiere and the penultimate episode, which air on a Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

    I totally agree, I love the weekly release. Some shows need to be binged, but this one is not one of them.

    I know some people loved last weeks episode but I’m super curious to see if it does something similar or (for me at least) ramps it back up to episode 3 in quality.

    yeah I’m slightly nervous about it. I was quite let down by episode 4 and I’m really hoping my expectations get exceeded again like what episodes 2 & 3 did.

    Hmm, it better have some more Mandalorians for that to be true, at least for me. This show being what it is today's ep will likely be great, but I'm not expecting another ep.3.

    Based on the episode description I'm going to guess Greef reaches out to Mando for his help. Some rook has gotten in big trouble and he knows only one person who can help him. Something like that. This leads to the Imperials going after Greef and Mando coming to his rescue in the next couple of episodes.

    Does that offer extend to other members of the forum too? I am on the east coast too, harder for me.

    Haven’t read the synopsis but can’t wait. Doing my usual Australian Friday night Mando Routine of a nice beer and some pizza, marathoning from episode 1.

    Earlier when I read this I was wondering why chapter 5 would be titled "Chef's kiss". I only just now reading through the thread again realised that that isn't what he meant :oops:[face_laugh]

    I promise. Cross my heart and hope to die. This is the last time I’ll mention August. I’ll even not mention August in August.

    Yup. I’m also on the East Coast, so it’s tough on my end too. But I’m a sucker for this show (and punishment, it seems).

    Mando Pajama Party!

    All the reasons stated in this tweet are why I've been looking forward to this one the most of all of them. Once I realized there are only 2 episodes not written by Favreau and that they are written (or co-written on the second) by Filoni makes me think we're getting a mini-arc.
    I remember rumors from the set about Sabine's helmet being seen on set. If that rumor is true, this is almost definitely the episode we'll see it in. And maybe something about the fate of Thrawn and Ezra; although the latter is a long run and most likely just some exposition even if it occurs. Oh, and last we saw Sabine, she was with Filoni's favorite ex-Jedi.....

    If I am not mistaken, tomorrow's episode is written (and directed) by Filoni, and next week's episode is co-written by Christopher Yost and Rick Famuyiwa. The rest of the episodes were all written by Favreau.

    You're right, I have it twisted in my head. But, Yost was a writer for some very Mando-heavy episodes of Rebels or Clone Wars (I can't remember which, and am too lazy to go look it up right now)

    I'd fall from my chair and watch the episode in a 24/7 loop until I have to leave to watch TROS
