    So yet another remake of "The Seven Samurai" albeit just 2 Samurai in this case. Considering Star Wars was very inspired by Kurosawa's Forbidden Fortress, I can't say I'm surprised by this one. It was kind of predictable, but fun nevertheless.

    I really liked Gina Carano's ex shocktrooper Cara Dune. I hope we see more of her.

    "Baby Yoda" is so freaking adorable.

    I'd have been kicked out of the Mandalorian club if the town widow kept coming on to me like that. Helmet? What helmet?

    I was 50-50 on whether I wanted Lil' Yoda to remain on Planet Backwater for a while or continue on with Mando. They solved that dilemma for me.

    Is it worth asking why/how the local thugs had an Imperial Walker?

    I would assume they stole it.

    Also was pretty cool to see Dallas Bryce Howard directed this episode.

    BTW, I think they pretty much answered the question will he ever take off his helmet.

    Considering the timeline that, this takes place not too long after the empire was defeated at the moon of Endore, and the 2nd Death Star was exploded.

    So yes, stolen is a good chance, or some imperial soldiers sold it. It's original owner is not existent at this point.

    Well, a guy's gotta eat and brush his teeth sometimes.

    Do you mean because he explained that he can never take his armor off, or because he took his helmet off to eat?

    Yes, because of their code. And obviously a man has to eat which is why they had the shot of the helmet being set on the window sill. But I don't think we will see his face on camera. I'm actually ok with it. I know what Pedro Pascal looks like.

    Me and my cousin were discussing this over the holidays. Probably been mentioned before in another thread but we were wondering if it is even him in the costume.

    Well technically they can show the viewer his face, we just likely will never see him reveal his face to another character on the show.

    I'm curious how the trackers work? Are they DNA trackers? You would assume that if there was a chip in baby Yoda, they would just remove it. Also, how far can it detect? Seems it took a couple weeks for bounty hunters to hear about a Mandalorian on this backwater planet and they show up. So, they must need to at least know the planet, and then the tracker kicks in once they get there?

    Well, we have seen his face, from before he was a Mandalore; but it was of a child actor in the role, not Pedro. Once might presume that the villagers saw his face when he took his helmet off, since as he was eating the door was open in full view of them working at the fish farm.

    Looper needs to dial back the hyperbole there. A boom mic slipping into a shot for a couple of seconds is not a "huge mistake". I rewatched the scene and even looking for it, I could barely see it because the shot is so dark.

    Fans "took to the internet" in droves over that? Even if I had noticed it, I wouldn't have cared enough to discuss it with other people.

    If I stare at exactly the right part of the screen, at exactly the right moment, and watch it bob in and out, it's kinda funny.

    Otherwise, even knowing it's there, I can't see it.
