Mando and baby Yoda 

Review of "The Mandalorian" 1/5/20 by Suzanne
aired November 12 - December 27 on Disney+

This is a really great show, especially if you love "Star Wars."  I've been a fan of "Star Wars" since 1977, when the first movie came out. I was 16, but I already loved scifi and fantasy. The movie just captured my imagination in a way that I can't describe.  Most of the other movies have been disappointing in one way or the other (the most recent one is good), usually because they kill someone off that I like, or they just repeat the same plot from previous movies. I admit that I haven't had time to read the books or watch all of the animated series.

I tell you all this so you know that not only am I a TV expert, I am a "Star Wars" fanatic. When I tell you that "The Mandalorian" is great, I'm not just blowing smoke.  Most people who've seen the show will tell you the same. I can't wait for season 2!

The Mandalorian is a bounty hunter, like Boba Fett, but he seems to belong to a certain type of bounty hunter that has a code and wears armor, much like knights or some kind of cult. They're all called Mandalorians (which must get confusing).  They're not like what we think of as bounty hunters here in the real world: Tough guys who go after people for money.  These are warriors, who hate the Empire because they killed their people. They wear their armor most of the time, it seems, and don't take it off for anyone else.  The show is a lot like an old western, yet it's set in the "Star Wars" universe.

The titular Mandalorian is paid to go after something, which he's told is 50 years old. It turns out to be a baby in a cradle-hovercraft which looks to be the same species as Yoda. It has some powers of The Force as well. (Yes, this is the Baby Yoda you've seen around social media).  The Mandalorian abandons his orders and his code in order to rescue the baby.

I apologize for the lateness of this review. I usually watch one or two episodes and then put up the review as soon as possible. However, between the holidays, getting sick, and finals, I fell really behind on watching and writing reviews.


After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe.  “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.  Fact Sheet
