Except we know that Mandalorians didn't always keep their helmets on, this is well covered in The Clone Wars, which is canon. This not removing the helmet in front of others is a new thing. It does get explained, but it doesn't really make it any better. It feels very much like an arse covering exercise should the lead actor decide to leave or make demands for higher salary, they can easily recast the part.

Well spoiler alert but he does in one episode ;)

The whole series was better than I thought. Few episodes I thought were so so but overall just far better than I thought. Can’t wait for season 2

Hopefully the Mandalorian will be shown on other channels or available on DVD/Download at some point as i really cant justify paying for another TV channel at the moment, especially just for one series that im interested in.
ATARI....There can be only one !!!!!!!

Sign up for a month then binge watch it (once all 8 episodes have aired)

It’s a great series. Also roll on tomorrow and the digital version of rise of sky walker

I can't see that happening any time soon. Disney have been slowly pulling content and licenses from other channels for the last couple of years so there's an incentive to buy into Disney+. At less than £1 per week, it was a no brainer for me to sub, though the late launch in the UK meant I'd already pirated The Mandalorian since there was no legit alternative. Caught up on the new season of The Clone Wars though.

You wanna stop watching wrestling or that dodgy anime stuff and watch the Mandolorian. It’s excellent and a return to form

Ill stop watching wrestling when something better comes along
(Also this can be subjective as a lot of it can be pish)

I'm pretty sure it'll get a DVD release eventually, its just right now its one of the crown jewels in the Disney+ new original programming line up and I'm sure once that library fills up, then they'll put it out on DVD....

...course with filming suspended on new shows till the virus buggers off, that might be a good while.

Watched Rise of the Skywalker digital edition last night. Did enjoy it, alright i admit - i did find the ending very sad as thats the last you'll see of the original characters for sure. Again its not the best film but a lot of very good sequences. Always like seeing new aliens etc. Huge battle at the end.

Nice to have it in the collection. Looking forward to watching one of the documentaries this week
