Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Chapter 9
    -------------------------------------

    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.

    With Daylight Savings happening on our end in Europe it's kind of thrown things out of schedule so I'm not sure how far behind or ahead I am in terms of times.

    Eastern Time, yes. But not everyone lives in that time zone, so it will air at different times for people in different time zones...

    Looked it up, this is what I found...
    .
    "According to Disney Plus sources, new episodes of The Mandalorian are expected to premiere on the service every Friday “shortly after” 12 a.m. PST."

    I think this season’s episodes will have longer runtimes for one simple reason: villain scenes. In the first season, we followed Mando all the way through, and there was no primary villain hunting him until the last episode. Now we have Gideon. And I expect that we will have scenes of Gideon plotting and executing. Scenes that don’t involve Mando. And that’ll make the episodes longer.

    Anyone hanging out tonighter for when it drops in your particular time zone? I'm Eastern time which is 3 AM (usually my bedtime or an hour later) although I did notice that seems longer to drop on the PS4 app than mobile/web. Only have episode 8 in my S1 rewatch to go and since Star Trek Discovery is on CTVScifi at 1 AM and Mando S3 hits at 3 AM going to watch it in between then. But it's only 47 minutes, what am I going to do for 13 whole minutes!!! (probably read SW #7 if I need to kill a few min)

    I’ll be staying up as I usually do to watch it once it drops and then I’ll watch it again in the morning. I’m so hyped! Not much longer now!

    Finished chapter 6 on my rewatch! Just 7/8 to go. Will easily have it done in time and shouldn't have much time to go until chapter 9!

    Staying up on the east coast. I only got 3 hours of sleep last night, so this is not going to be easy. Very excited though!

    Hopefully Disney plus is on the mark and getting it out there at 3 AM like Netflix does, the waiting for 15-20 minutes after 3am is driving me nuts ahahha

    possible something big at the end like episode 1 cuz the end of episode 1 basically set up the entire season/series so I'm expecting something close to that level reveal
