Is paying for that disney channel/subscription the only way I can watch this show?

Agree with Inside Job @The Boatman , Empire is almost perfect as a film. So clean, so tight, so strong. Makes the new films look like such an unfocussed mess

Curious about Mandalorian but don't wanna pay $100/year for it

I'm sure there's sites you can stream or download the show.

The first three episodes were good but the last few have not been for me. The last one was brutal.

It's easy to write a good beginning to a story.

Much harder to write a good ending.

Even harder to not make a mess of the middle.

All they've done so far is a beginning.
There's no middle really. Definitely no end in sight.
Each episode is self contained. There's no story arc to the season. Aside from the first two, maybe three you don't even have to watch the episodes in order.

I'll keep watching because I love Star Wars and The Mandalorian himself is good.

They must have some idea where the story is going, it's a big show I'm sure they've planned it out. I'm on Ep 4, and its still fun but no idea where the story is going at this point, just lost a lot of steam and direction

I was just talkin story writing in general

On the other hand, the latest Star Wars trilogy really appears to have been written film-by-film with no clear path making it up as they go. That to me is insane. Such a huge franchise, and they scramble it together without a map? I just don't get it. The ONLY way to do a new Star Wars trilogy is to plan the fuck out of it and make sure the whole story is amazing and air tight before you even start. Even Lucas in the prequels knew exactly where he was going and all the main character arcs in check.

I wonder how many TV shows just start with a cool premise and a strong first couple of episodes (or even a whole season) and then have no idea what to do with it and just make shit up from then on as long as it stays popular

Gina Carano's character has no purpose so far that I can see. Don't know why Mando is with her

a bit cringy.

But the show looks great and I wanna see some baby Yoda shit so I'll keep this hook in my mouth a little longer lol

There's plans for a Cara Dune spinoff

I think the problem is too many people involved. Disney vs Lucasfilm vs the film's crew.
I thoroughly enjoy the originals and the sequels but I struggle to find a reason to rewatch the prequels and Vader is one of my all-time favourite characters.
To me they fumbled them.

I hated the prequels too but they are better than this new trilogy.

Force Awakens was off to a fun start but Last Jedi took a big stinking dump all over the whole franchise. What a total disgrace. The more I really think about it the more I am convinced you really couldn't make a worse Episode 8. Like a fucking child wrote it and didn't bother to edit lol

Actually, a child would never have written Luke that way so its even worse

Prequels were done badly but the STORY is still strong and fun to follow. The basic Canon and history behind A New Hope is part of the mythology imo. This new stuff is just prostitution lol

What is your issue with Luke in Last Jedi?

Aside from the Rose/Finn story I enjoyed Last Jedi.

You know what would make this new Star Wars trilogy A-MAZ-ING??? A graphically explicit scene of Luke milking an alien's genitals, but the genitals look just like female breasts! We get right up close to the alien's nutsack, and see Luke squishing and prodding it. Kids will love it and it will really move the plot along and offer the fans some real magic to dream about. Oh, and the alien's face should look like an infected foreskin. Budget is not an issue.

RIAN JOHNSON
Wow that is awesome! I'll get started on that scene right away. The story revisions can wait. I'll make it look really pornographic. God, I'm glad you are part of this creative team. Wonder why the original movies didn't have any tits in them?

Next we'll come back to making more feminist/man-hating/animal rights propaganda inserted into as many scenes as possible. The story revisions can wait.

RIAN JOHNSON
Righty-O!

Just finished Season 1. Very cool, looks great

Disappointed there were no milking nutsack scenes though

How long do we have to wait for Season 2?
Curious how many known characters they might cameo, or if they will attach the story to any major characters like Sidious, Snoke etc
