The Mandalorian season 1 review
By Paul Anthony
It has been nearly a week since the season final aired on Disney+, so at this point I figured it was a good time to do a review since most of what I say shouldn’t be a spoiler. Honestly if it is a spoiler then I feel sorry for you because this had to be the show of 2019 even though we had a few other shows and not to mention that this show came at the very end of the year with only 8 episodes but that was part of the magic. this show had every thing the Star Wars fan nation wanted and it didn’t have too much of one thing, let’s take a look back.
The show came out the same day Disney+ started but after that each episode was released on a Friday ever since then minus episode 7 which was second to last. I know this was to help build up Rise Of Skywalker but I thought it also made sense to build up the last episode by making us wait even longer to see how it would end. Soon as it ended of course many of the fans were wondering when was season two coming which would find out would be in the fall of 2020 so looks like every year around the same time we will get a new season.
The show follows A Mandalorian bounty hunter who goes by the name of Mando since no one knows his real name. The first real mission is to retrieve what we all called baby Yoda which is actually 50 years old but slow to age which explains why Yoda was so old and so powerful with the force. Anyway Mando gets the baby and his reward but comes to his senses and break the bounty code which makes them an enemy of pretty much everyone who wants money. They hop from planet to planet and do small jobs for cash and parts but each episode is an adventure for Mando with people trying to kill him. Until he is needed and people are willing to wipe the slate clean and he knows this is what is best for the child and himself. In the end it is no easy fight, he learns most of the Mandalorians are killed because of his actions, everything leads to this epic battle against storm troopers and their leader vs Mando and his little team and hope seems lost until the very end in which we learns Mando real name and it is Din Djarin and the villain Moff Gideon survives his battle and cuts his way out of his fighter jet or X Wing for your hardcore fans with a Black Saber which is a Mandalorian artifact, leaving us with questions going into season 2. Mando in the end is determine to find the child’s parents though he had develop relationship with the child.
This show in the end had a good story to tell which did shock me, then it had good fight scenes nothing over the top, they did a few callbacks to tell you where they tied in the Star Wars timeline. Best part of it all was that it created new characters to follow without being caught up with the old characters. It will be a long wait for me for season 2!
