  • I assume there are many CBR members who have been watching this new TV show. Who has a Disney+ membership? Apparently lots of people. Not me!! My best bud has the service and he was not thrilled with what the site has to offer.

    I won't give any spoilers as this is still a very new show. I have enjoyed the first three episodes so far. Great action. Great Iron Man-esque costume. Not sure where this show is going, but I'll join for now.

  • Not really sure what your friend is talking about, Disney + is awesome and the best streaming service out there lol...All Disney, Marvel, Star Wars & Pixar...with a bit of National Geographic...Awesome!!! Maybe he doesnt like that not every movie is there...and that is because they are 'rented' out at the moment to netflix lol...

    As for Mandalorian...Im Not a Star Wars guy, but that show after only 4 episodes is spectacular...Movie quality in a show...And great story line...Why cant the actual movies be as good lol...

  • My only gripe with D+ is that you can make a large dent in the inventory in a month or two. Netflix and the others have lots of different content coming and going... Guess that is why it is only $7/month.

    I think the show is pretty good. Obviously they are releasing the shows 1 a week so that people will need to buy 3 months to watch them all (if they signed up day 1).

  • Yeah I am enjoying the show. The pacing is a tad slow, but I guess they're trying to keep some suspense as to where this story is going. I enjoyed the homage to 7 Samurai in ep 4..

    As for D+.... yeah the lack of new content on there is really an issue. I feel like I could cancel this subscription and come back in 8 months and catch up very quickly on the new content.

    My kids are at an age where video games and youtube trump tv/movies so even with all this awesome older Disney content on there, it's not a draw to them.

    On the + side, I did finally see Avatar, a movie I had somehow never watched. It was good, imaginative with a "dances with wolves in space' story line.

  • I love The Mandalorian. They got this show right and it feels like it really belongs as part of the original trilogy timeline. Have to say the excitement of waiting for the next episode far surpasses my excitement for the Rise of Skywalker movie.

  • Even though I was very, very unimpressed by Star Wars Episode 7 and 8, I have to admit The Mandalorian is so much better in every way. It is fun, well-written and feels like a real Star Wars story. It's funny that I really enjoyed Solo and Rogue One, which are allegedly not as important as the Star wars movies with a number included. Weird.

    Right there with you. I have no faith in this "last" one.

    Good call on Rouge One,that was my favorite. I think the fact that it was "less important" made it more enjoyable, I felt like I didnt have to know everything about everything and could just enjoy the action.

  • I am enjoying the Mandalorian quite a bit. The production value is great. In all 6 episodes I have watched, there were only a couple times I felt it looked cheap. But those moments were brief and it was more than likely the cost of the FX is why. But the story is gold. I am enjoying the supporting cast of actors in the show. Looking at you Bill Burr. And you too Herzog.

    As to the movie that about to drop, I get it. They are finishing the past to move forward. Like Kylo said, "Bury the past, Kill it if you have to." And that is what they are doing. Do most of us like it, not really. But I don't disagree with it either. I like how Luke ended up. I always wanted him to go bitter hermit monk and he did. Still, I will watch because I was almost 6 when I saw Star Wars at the movies and it changed everything for me about what i was interested in. So no matter what, they got me until I check out of the existence.

  • I am enjoying the show, I'd like it to have a bit more direction it's a bit to episodic for my tastes. The thing that is killing me is how cliche the storys are. They basically did the maginificent seven with 2 ppl, they last episode they did the teaming up with a band of bad guys you can't trust and ever new piece of imformation is a big swerve for the main character. Like you watch this and then THe expanse and the story telling in the expanse is light years ahead of this.

    The writing/story ideas has to get better than, old trope but in space.
    Like someone mentioned for ep5, they did the Top Gun put on the air brakes so the bad guys flys by the aircarft and then dies.

  • After watching six episodes of The Mandalorian I'm still happy with Disney+'s effort on this new show.
    That being said, I'm not a big fan of baby Yoda. Yes, he's cute as , even the Mandalorian's villains find his lil face adorable. I believe Disney has the cutest ever Christmas present of 2019 and that's a bit of a problem for me. I've already seen a Baby Yoda Trump T-shirt on a snippet from the Daily Show. This show may have created an uncontrollable monster without even trying.

  • Alright, the last 2 episodes of the season were really good. Adding 'Gus Fring' has improved this show with some real menace!
