    Well that was a fun little diversion. I'm not sure it needed to be a full episode, but then, 'diversion in pursuit of a higher goal that advances the plot along the way' are pretty standard Star Wars fare (see also: Yavin in IV, Bespin in V, Tatooine in VI, the entire Naboo story in I, Kamino in II, Utapau in III, Takodana in VII, Canto Bight in VIII).

    Speaking of: Jawas! Was this planet meant to be Tatooine? I don't think it was named in either episode so far, so that caught me a bit by surprise. It was also a little surprising to see the sandcrawler driving so fast, after seeing them look so painfully slow in IV. But then I suppose it makes sense, if they have to drive across vast swathes of desert, it really needs to move.

    So the little baby Yoda dude(tte?). Definitely Force-sensitive! I wonder if it's a species trait?

    It's not Tatooine, no. Named as Arvala-7 in the online Star Wars database.

    But as far as I'm aware, there's nothing to establish that Jawas are native to Tatooine.

    However, their presence on Arvala-7 seems to imply that they're a spaceflight capable species.
    If so, I really don't want to see what their ships look like...

    The bit of business with the sandcrawler's track, the rockface and the Mandalorian was a nice nod to "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    The EGG!!

    Again beautiful scenery combined with an interesting walk around the planet, even though I thought it might have a little too much walking about.

    The Jawas stripping the Mando's ship and then him trying to board their crawler.

    No really, ya think...

    I fully expect the toy stores to be flooded with plush Baby!Yodas next Christmas.

    I wouldn't mind one myself, and I'm nearly 50.

    I just got my regular email newsletter from the IMFDB, and besides IDing the real weapon the Mandalorian's pistol is based on, we have an interesting little titbit of information.

    The Mandalorian's name.

    Spoiler:
    Dyn Jarren


    Whether this is true or not, remains to be seen.

    I imagine we'll find out soon enough - there's that bit in the trailer where Ming-Na Wen's character says something about how his name will be remembered for ages to come.

    Personally though I kind of like not knowing his name. Has a bit of a Sergio Leone feel to it.

    Haven't seen the trailer so maybe it does happen at some point, but my sister wondered whether he was ever going to take his helmet off, and I'm like, "Why?" -- it's a lot more fun this way.

    There's no way for him to show through facial expressions how he feels about certain things. He has to act it out with speech and the way he moves his body. So much more interesting than just smiling or glaring.

    Somehow this is a kinky thought and my Cathat Jawa loving Jedi Battlemaster is interested greatly in this idea. I was able to see bits and pieces of the show so far though, just not in one sitting.

    I now want to see the inside of a Jawa spaceship

    And falling right out of the sky... at every occasion.

    Remember that Firefly buffer panel... I bet the Jawa's have to constantly patch up their ships to maintain viable flight capabilities.
