The Mandalorian - Episode 2.05 - Chapter 13 - Review

Every series has a turning point or shift in the narrative that elevates it to the next level. Some shows have a lot of these throughout the course of its life. It is unclear how many The Mandalorian will have, but one thing is for sure: This episode, Chapter 13, "The Jedi", was one of them. It is difficult to talk about this episode without spoiling the contents of it, so please do not read unless you've seen the episode.

The Mandalorian - Episode 2.04 - Chapter 12 - Review

Even though the show tickled its fans with the notion of meeting Ahsoka Tano last week , the Razor Crest just couldn't make it to her. This episode, directed by Carl Weathers, was a detour that the show is known best for, but at least it connected to the larger story of Moff Gideon and his hunt for the Child.

The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special - Review

If you say "Holiday Special" to a Star Wars fan, they will most likely cringe, laugh embarrassingly, or just slowly shake their head. It was something that George Lucas himself hated. It's a badge of honor of Star Wars fans to have actually sat through it. It is also something that Lucasfilm definitely wanted to distance themselves from...unless you put "Lego" in front of it. The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special is not a remake of the original Holiday Special but still takes a bit of inspiration from it.

The Mandalorian - Episode 2.03 - Chapter 11 - Review

While last week's episode was fun, it didn't offer much in terms of the overall journey of the Mandalorian's quest to find The Child's kind. This week was different. It took a gigantic step in that direction. There are character spoilers throughout this review.

The Mandalorian - Episode 2.02 - Chapter 10 - Review

This week saw Ant-Man and The Wasp 's Peyton Reed take the helm for one of the most tense (and hilarious) episodes of The Mandalorian to date. The show is still treading water, but it is doing so in the most entertaining way possible.
