    Episode 1 is up on Disney+

    A good start, it’s even managed to engage my 11year old daughter, I think she likes the violence 😄.

    Robert Rodriguez directed the opener.

    Might be a better option to forgo the first episode and wait till next month so you have the next installment ready to view.

    Always better watching two than one 😉

    How often is it dropping?

    I’d also be minded to let a few episodes build up first.

    Weekly drops I’d expect.

    I prefer old school weekly episodes so me and the boy, and possibly girl as well now, sit down and watch together.

    Great start. Loved the nod to Ray Harryhausen with the desert monster.

    The Ray Harryhausen monster was great. Nice Matt Berry cameo too.

    I’ll watch it but .. is it of similar vein to Mandalorian? That’s a bit tiresome I’m finding (finally).

    Do I need to watch Mandalorian first?

    No, so far completely self contained. Helps if you’ve seen return of the Jedi though.

    Interesting, if a tad slow.

    It’s basically a kid’s show. It’s entertaining enough but it’s fairly predictable.

    Technically yes, but it’s appealing to 40+ yo men who are still kids (me)

    Rated 12+

    Pretty much suits everyone here.

    Is it as bad/written by AI as the Mandalorian?

    It’s more of the same – it’s a good kid’s show, adults will find it predictable. It’s entertaining though.

    Yes it’s part of the Star Wars saga so of curse it is.

    that’s the one, Gork or something he’s called.

    Just watched the second one and Liked it, not sure its too much like the mandalorian though.

    I’m enjoying it but I’d love it if it was a bit less of a space Western and had some original ideas. Waiting for some underlining storyline to kick in.

    Found this week’s stage coach robbery a bit meh….

    It’s Star Wars so of course it’s for kids.

    It’s Star Wars so of course it’s predictable.

    It’s Star Wars so of course it’s great fun.

    I (37) watched it with my mum (68) and daughters (7,4) and we liked it. 4 year old likes explosions.

    pretty good so far. I feel the star wars TV shows have been much better than the marvel ones. Hawkeye was pretty good though.

    Was the dark triangular hood a reference?

    Just watched the first one and thought of Harryhousen without reading this thread before so happy to see he’s been namechecked already. I enjoyed it. My wife thought it very odd (she loved Manalorian).

    The wookiee was from a Star Wars comic apparently. I enjoyed it apart from the disjointedness of the flashback and present day and it did slow down a bit in parts. Much better than the first episode.

    If you like simple action stories, sure. Something like Wandavision is a much more subtle concept (it was about a woman overwhelmed with grief inventing a fantasy world). If you’re not into that, you’re not into it, but the Star Wars stuff is very simple, predictable children’s stuff. Entertaining, but very predictable.

    Yeah, the Tuskan raiders had the best dialog.

    I think its going to be more of the mandalorian type of set up. Short stand alone episodes.

    But honestly, back to the dialog, or lack of it rather. Nobody gives a good speech, its just short grunts or 2 lines and thats it. You need to be able to relate to the character, and with nods and grunts the main speaking parts thats never going to happen.

    Acting 😕

    Was there any or did i just miss it ?.
