    Wow. I liked it a lot. Very high production values and it felt very "Star Wars"...I'm really looking forward to them fleshing out certain elements of the "Star Wars" universe...

    Positives:
    Production design, special effects, interesting main character. Seems like there's a whole mythos to the Mandalorians as a...tribe...that we will get to explore.

    Negatives:
    Not many, though I thought they pushed a couple of "Star Wars" elements too much, like with the creatures attacking when he was using his scanner or the Kowakian monkey-lizard in the market...

    When exactly in the Star Wars timeline is this set?

    I wasn't paying close attention. Did they specifically say that the planet was Tatooine? Or are we just supposed to assume it? Or is there some Star Wars nerdery in there that says that it's actually not Tatooine?

    I don't think we're supposed to assume it. I certainly didn't assume it---why did you?

    It looked like Tatooine.

    The creatures were very Mos Eisleyish.

    So Yaddle died in the first trilogy. Yoda died in Return of The Jedi.

    So who is this at the end?

    Not Yota, or Yaddle

    However, it could be their child I guess, if the baby is 50 years old, both Yota and Yaddle were kicking around then I think because that would put this "baby" the same age as Anakin.

    Were they the only surviving members of their species?

    Yoda was a dedicated Jedi who weren’t allowed wives or children. The attachment to Padmé was what led Anakin to the dark side.

    I liked it. A lot. It felt like Star Wars was supposed to. Lots of cool but subtle callbacks to the in universe history. Life day, Blurrgs, possibly living Boba Fett?

    I had guessed a 50 year old infant had to be a member of the same species as Yoda and Yaddle as soon as I saw the cradle.

    I'm anxious to see where this goes and what characters come in and out. I mean we have a universe of possibilites, Maz Kanata and Chewie for one/two.

    They only showed one sun. I don’t think it was Tatooine.

    Baby Y is the same age as Anakin Skywalker. Maybe.

    I liked the bounty drone. Sorry to see it go.

    The blurrg must not have much bite force. The Mandalorian didn't seem injured after being rag dolled by the blurrg.
