re: Mandalorian Episode 4 thread
Whats the running explanation on this tracker device?

The crib is gone, so it wasnt in the crib. I would expect that if it could be disabled, he would do that. Does that bother anyone else? Is it biological?


I thought this was the weakest episode so far, they somewhat stole a bit from High Plains Drifter and Army of Darkness. Other than establishing Mando has found a safe haven should he make it out the other end of this with the child alive, not much really progressed. This episode will seem much more vital if they find their way back here, if not, it wasn't more than filler.

War has been going on for awhile throughout the galaxy.


Not in the Outer Rim. The rebellion never extended this far out. Hence why even in the 1st episode Mando did not want imperial credits for the bounty. So the villagers that are from there had no issue or dealings regarding the war. The Empire used the Outer Rim to hide caches and setup secret bases. The Empire had no need to start issues with the locals who had no allegiance to the rebellion or the Old Republic in the outer rim.

quote:

Are you telling me that band of dudes invading their village just randomly one day decided to attack their village and that was the first time those villagers had ever been attacked ever?


I think these bandits were known already but it was random who they attacked and when. It is not like they had some secret base as they were more like nomads that took what they wanted. Again in the Outer Rim there is no law. Pirates and bandits ran a muck. They did not mess with the Empire and the Empire could care less what they did. The Outer Rim is our version of the Old West.

quote:

And the only one who had any experience was a petite single mom?



For all we know she could be there hiding from something else. Just like the other rebel soldier. Another reason people disappear to the Outer Rim.

quote:

No it's very clear the tracker is attached to the baby Yoda.


Not arguing that but saying I do not think a handheld tracker has the range to track through space. When he landed on the planet in the first episode the tracker had a weak signal. Not to mention when he was originally giving the tracker in the bar it was not going off as I assume because baby Yoda was not on that planet. I think the BH tracked his ship to the planet. Lets remember the trackers were given to the BHs from the guild. With the exception of this one all the others were engaged fighting the Mandalorians in the last episode. This may have gotten smarter and decided to avoid the fray and track the ship so he could catch the prey later.

I am curious though when he returned the baby Yoda to the client and while the client had possession the trackers did not go off. Does the Empire have the ability to turn it off or cloak it? Because once he went and got baby Yoda back all the trackers went off again.

I would think he would disable the tracker. It has bothered me. Mando should know better.

Saw that Bryce Dallas Howard directed this episode, and that AT-ST coming out of the woods had such a Jurassic Park fell.

re: Mandalorian Episode 4 thread
We actually just got a 58” 4K TV while at my parents and I told my kids we had to wait till we got back to watch this episode.

It’s been a bit dim, but not too bad. I’m excited to watch this on 4K.

The tracker is a biological tracker. That's why it's not one of those pucks.

They covered this in the first couple of episodes.

Figured I missed something.

Also Mando's helmet sucks. He is getting punched in the head and knocked down. That helmet should be a weapon.

Good episode. Another rehash of Seven Samurai but I never get tired of that story.

In. Haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure it's awesome.

What's with these run times? They don't show ads during this on Disney+, do they?

re: Mandalorian Episode 4 thread
So I’ve been watching this series from the beginning and was very excited about it after the first episode. However, I’m getting a bit frustrated with it. First is the format. Episode length varies greatly week to week. Disney needs to make them standard 1 hour episodes and be done with it. Secondly, the story line is disjointed. Other than bounty hunters being after baby Yoda, there is no overall development of the story. Each week is new characters and settings but it’s not building off of the previous episode which is leaving holes in the story. For instance, why was baby Yoda being kept in a shed with a bunch of junk? The creatures that the mandalorian had to kill to retrieve him seemed oblivious to him even being there and it was never addressed as to why they had him. That brings me to another point, if feels as if Disney is fixated on making the baby stupid freakin cute in every episode but are doing nothing to develop his character.

Over all, I like the series and think it has huge potential but viewers are going to tire of it quickly if they don’t really start fleshing out a captivating plot and serious character development. It doesn’t seem like they know where they are going though, as it appears they flirted with a potential romance this week but then quickly ended the episode.

I’m not worried about the plot not being fleshed out yet. I think they will have that handled come the end of the season. That may seem entirely too late but with each episode being between 30-40 minutes, I think it could take that long. It’s still entertaining enough and I feel confident this is all going to come to together.

And not sure how much they can flesh out a babies character. Maybe a little backstory on him but otherwise, what?

That’s what I was getting at. We are 4 episodes in and Disney seems a little too enamored with making him look cute. Meanwhile we literally know nothing about him or why the empire is even after him. All we know is they want him and they hired bounty hunters to bring him in. That’s it, nothing else. You’d think if that’s the central plot of the series you’d attempt to touch on it or address it.

They want him because he has force capabilities.

As long as those baby Yoda dolls sell sell sell di$ney will continue to do what they're doing.

Di$ney is still looking for the right formula in star wars. They found it in marvel and tried to apply that formula to star wars already.

No you are assuming that. It’s never been addressed. If they wanted him for that, why are they trying to kill him? The empirical character that paid his bounty didn’t care if he was brought back dead. It was the scientist pushing to bring him in alive. Furthermore, not to spoil episode 4 but what do you think the bounty hunters intentions were for the baby at the end of the episode, because it sure didn’t seem like he was wanting to take him alive.

I can believe she could kick my ass, i do not believe 99% of these women they put in these roles would kick even baby yodas ass.

re: Mandalorian Episode 4 thread
I don’t need baby Yoda’s story fleshed out. It’s pretty clear that the Imperials had a Kamonian clone guy with them and the Yoda species is force sensitive. Draw your own conclusions rather than ask for the entire story to be spoon fed to you.

And I rather they tell a concise story each episode at varying length than pigeon hole it to a certain time length each episode. If the story this week’s episode needs 45 minutes then give it 45 minutes. If it needs 30 next then 30 it is. If the following needs an hour, give it an hour. Who the hell wants a rushed episode or an episode with a bunch of filler?

There’s a lot of little things like this and he’s quite the sap for a Bounty Hunter living in this galactic environment. Still a fun show.

I actually like that he can be hurt a little. Don’t need an invincible here.

Like the other thread started. Getting punched in the helmet shouldn’t hurt him.
