I noticed a pattern after episode 3. Last night's episode 4 absolutely proves my theory without a doubt: The Mandalorian is a remake of the 70s TV show Kung Fu. Think about it. Mando is Kwai Chang Caine. Instead of being a monk trained from childhood as an orphan he is in a similar situation as a Mandalorian. Caine was on the run after committing a crime. Same with Mando. Caine was chased by bounty hunters through the old west. Mando is chased by bounty hunters in the wilds of the Star Wars universe. Caine encountered new villages and people each week and often saved a town from raiders. Mando encountered a random village and new characters and saved them from raiders. Kung Fu was a show with a common thread but new encounters each week. Mandalorian appears headed in the same direction.

Funny everyone has their own opinions... I like the Mandalorian, but can't stand the Watchmen. I stopped watching that one after three episodes.

Peaky Blinders! Now that's a great show!

I liked Bill Burr in there. He had a lot of character. The woman character was awful. Aside from that the episode was enjoyable.

All in all, I really liked the show. Unlike the relentless action and multiple epic ongoing threads we are used to in the Star Wars movies, we get to relax a bit and concentrate on one story line. And I still say this show is a remake of the old Kung Fu show from the early 70s.

Quoted from PNBLWZD:

I thought IG8 saving the day on multiple fronts was also a very cool surprise

Yeah it kind of sucks that he self destructed. Hopefully this will pave the way to Mando trusting/partnering with another droid next season. Those droids are cool as hell and make funny characters too.
