Urgh, tell me about it. In our new place we have a smart meter for our energy, so every day I can see how much money we're spending on gas and electric. Might have to start wearing a coat instead of turning the central heating on.

I got my Disney + set up the other day, but haven't had a chance to watch yet... will later today!

I am amazed at my restraint,  honestly.

Watched first two episodes.

And it was good, so good.

 

Also... holy freaking crackers. Big surprise at the end of ep. 1, and 2, really.  So if you don't want to know, like, ignore the internet for a while. It's all over it.

Spoiler

Baby Yoda???   I mean, yeah, not actually Yoda, just one of his species. But what!?!

He's totally this year's meme king.

I'm caught up through episode six. Can't believe there are only two more left.     Season two can't come soon enough LOL.

This week's episode was so good. Definitely the best of the series, so far.

Once the series has finished a friend from work is going to acquire it for me, then I can finally see what I've been missing!

Never has "reveal hidden contents" been so tempting.

At first I was like, ok, a vibroblade can cut through starship armor. Cool. Then I saw the whole weapon and thought that looks awfully familiar. No way. That can't be what I think it is. It's exactly what I think it is. What the what?!

Haha, a vibroknife was my first thought too!    But apparently it has changed hands in the 10 years or so since Sabine gave it back to the Mandos and the time of this series... and it couldn't be the purge, because that was way  back at the end of the Clone Wars...      It is nice to see something from another medium make it to live-action though. And with Filoni running this with Favreau, shouldn't have been too surprised lol.

Watched the first episode of the Star Wars Gallery - The Mandalorian. On Disney+.  Kind of a behind-the-scenes show.  Really interesting. This episode focused on the different directors.

The Mandalorian is one of the best things I've watched in a long, long time.

Agreed! We should have had a series like this a long time ago, can't wait for series 2.

And welcome :)

Season 2 trailer!

Looks like I don't have to wait for months this time, either. :D

Nope, just a few short weeks! :D

 

 

And the speculation of the mysterious character Sasha Banks is playing... has begun lol.

Really liked the first episode, seemed to be a lot of callbacks to the films and the EU in it. Was nice to see them do something a little different with Tatooine.

And obviously that ending! AHHH! 😃

You're talking first episode of season 2, right? 😛

Haha, yes!

I'm loving the new series so far. The second episode was a bit slow, but I think it works really well when you watch episodes 2+3 together.

Definitely.

A lot of the episodes seem to be kind of filler/side quest sort of adventures, but we are gradually filling in some of the blanks. Which I like.  The gradual part I mean, instead of dropping it all on us.

Spoiler

That little smile on Gideon's face though at the end of the last episode... so great hahaha.

Yep, I feel like the last episode was a sort of turning point though, and that the rest of the season will follow a more cohesive arc, although I could be wrong.

Well...

Finally got confirmation that some of the rumors were true...

Spoiler

as we got our first look at live-action Ahsoka.  And I have to say, excepting the shrinking lekku (apparently done to make stunts easier), Rosario was spot on.

BUT

Spoiler

The Child is no longer The Child!  But Grogu!    Thoughts on the name?     I'll bet most will still refer to him as Baby Yoda, haha. I know it'll take me a little to get used to.

Oh and a certain someone gets name-dropped.

Spoiler

THRAWN!   Setting up a cameo later on or his own rumored spin-off, perhaps?
