The second Mandalorian episode was released earlier today! And it’s another winner. I cannot tell you anything really about this episode because a certain spoilery something is very much involved with the plot. The basic plot is simple, the Mandalorian found his target in Chapter 1 and wants to get back to his ship now. On his way back he is attacked by rival bounty hunters who want to kill his bounty, the Mandalorian expertly disposes of them, only to find that when he returns to his ship pesky Offworld Jawas have dismantled it… now he needs the parts back. But the Jawas want something in return… and the fun begins. This episode will be talked about for days and days and possibly even longer. I can tell you that!
Also, let me just tell you that whoever can subscribe to Disney+ and is remotely interested in Star Wars should subscribe now. $6.99, even if the only thing you’ll ever watch is The Mandalorian, is still just $0.88 per episode, and I bet you will rewatch the episodes a lot. It’s a bargain.
This show is a winner. It’s what the vast majority of Star Wars fans have hoped for, it’s what they want and what they need. It will make you happy. You will smile. You will be surprised. The show also expands the Star Wars mythos in a very fundamental way. So don’t wait, don’t hesitate, watch the episode now! Just one caveat, the second episode is just 31 minutes long. We need more. Now! But we will have to wait until next Friday!

SPOILER WARNING: YOU WILL BE THOROUGHLY SPOILED IF YOU READ THE REVIEW!
Today not only saw the debut of Disney+ in North America and a few selected other countries, today also saw the release of the highly anticipated first-ever Star Wars live-action series: The Mandalorian. I wrote a very spoilery review which you can read by clicking on the banner below. But maybe a few of you don’t want to read a spoiler review and for you, I have a few general thoughts: go watch the show! It’s the best thing in a long time, it’s like A New Hope, Rogue One and Solo, it’s your Boba Fett daydream come true, even if the character is not Boba Fett. This series is extremely well made, has a very, very, very interesting premise, and that final scene will be talked about for days and maybe even weeks. This show was made for longtime fans. Everyone can certainly enjoy it, but longtime fans will certainly love every second. So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t watched the episode yet, do it now. And if you have seen it and want to discuss it, then please read my review!

There are apparently a lot of Poe Dameron fans out there and LucasFilm and Marvel felt there was enough there to warrant his own comic series. The series may have a lot of readers, but it isn’t one of my favorites and this one-off Annual didn’t make it much better. That being said, this issue did add a bit of depth to the character we see on screen in The Force Awakens. Check out what I thought about this Annual issue and be sure to check out the other comic Research Droids Reviews. While you’re there, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments. If there is a series you think I should review, be sure to drop me a line and let me know!
