    With the history of clones in the Star Wars universe, any chance that's a clone of Yoda? If so, would he have Yoda's Force connection?

    I really enjoyed it. Great production values, much more humor than I expected, and a likable hero (even though we don't get to see his face).

    I did not recognize Nolte's voice, and I liked the character a lot. I hope we see more of him. I saw Ming Na Wen was in this episode. Was she the female Mandalorian working the forge?

    Nope that was Emily Swallow apparently. I heard that Ming Na Wen wasn't going to be in the show until later this season.

    Ah, they (IMDb) have changed it since yesterday...when I was watching the show, they had Wen as the Armorer.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that accepting payment in "Calamari flan" seems like a terrible idea (and also, a terrible dessert!)?

    History of clones? Mostly just the clone troopers and that took an entire planet. I wouldn’t say clones are a standard feature of the Star Wars universe otherwise.

    Or they are setting up that certain beings have been cloned, therefore in The Rise of Skywalker they can bring back a character if need be.

    How does that not make it a standard feature of the Star Wars universe?

    It only took an entire planet to do it at that scale, clearly cloning is an established thing in the Star Wars universe. I think it would be a stupid device to use for the plot, but it's clearly within the realm of possibility at least.

    Since all the Mandalorians are behind helmets, can't they say *anyone* is in it? As in, I heard Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Dolly Parton are all making appearances as Mandalorians this season. :D

    Character on seeing Tom Cruise in armor: Aren't you a little short for a Mandalorian?

    Usually Fridays, we get a new one tomorrow. There are exceptions near the end of the season due to the new Star Wars movie.

    I had a brief period where I wasn't sure I was enjoying this, but in the end, I really liked it. I loved the bounty robot. Didn't realize until the credits it was Taika Waititi. Really hope that robot comes back.

    I think I'm going to re-watch it before watching the second episode.
