While some episodes might be deemed a filler episode, we are definitely not short of action or character building. Some, including myself saw The Mandalorian as episodes of 'fetch-quests' like a computer game, but i really had no problem with that at all. We are shown a lone gunman who seems untouchable, but he struggles from time to time and that is good. I cannot stress enough that each season seems to get better and better and both season finalés will have you falling off your chair, it is THAT good.
This is a TV show and not a movie. Set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, there is soo much time where nothing has been documented with the Galaxy, far far away and The Mandalorian fits like a glove in this time slot. I've tried not to spoil anything for those interested. The Music, the Acting, the special effects and stunt work, everything is just how Star Wars should be. Not too over the top and not boring. Not to say that the Sequel Trilogy aka the Disney Trilogy was bad, but it could have been soo much better and it seems Dave Filoni is here again to pick up the pieces. If you are into Star Wars, you will definitely enjoy, especially how they manage to weave, the OT, PT and ST into 8 episodes for a single season. I mean, with all the many many eater eggs and such, this show will have you thinking about the Star Wars universe and who is alive, who is dead, who may come back and in some cases, we do see some returning characters from EVERYTHING (including the cartoons), of what came before it in the timeline.
On last thing. This journey for The Mandalorian and the episode titles, all have multiple meanings and as the story unravels, so does the character. Filoni and Favreau are painting a picture, something much bigger than just one bounty hunter, something that covers decades of infighting between a set of people, something that can explain or give context to the future. Earlier I mentioned the ST (DT) and although many have their views on The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker, I think going into season 3 will help give more context to these movies and why some characters are the way they are. A little like how the Clone Wars animated series helped show us Anakin Skywalkers turn to the Darkside. If you are a fan, you WILL like this. *my attempt to Jedi mid trick*
