It was an enjoyable trailer for a game about a Star War.

Chapter 10 wasn’t as good as Chapter 9

Amy Sidaris is singularly awful on this show

Also

Spoiler: show
Zero payoff (so far) on the Boba Fett tease

Totally not surprised on your spoiler. That's the money plot. They're not gonna burn it in episode 2.

It was a good episode...but ultimately on the forgettable side probably. Sidaris isn't in it enough for me to be too concerned about her performance.

Sidaris just seems like she’s in a different show.

I’m also aware that the tease will be paid off long term. This episode didn’t really love the overall story arc forward

I don't mind that they aren't progressing the main story fairly quickly, but Mando just isn't interesting enough when the biggest other thing in the episode is a creature. And you could argue that's been the case in 3 of the 10 episodes so far (one less than the other two).

There have been 2-3 others that didn't do a whole lot to progress the story but Mando interacted a lot more with people, and I have tended to enjoy those more.

Amy Sedaris horsefeathering rules.

I am baffled when people want nothing but linear storytelling as opposed to how horsefeathering awesome it is when this show uses the SW universe as a playground SO AWESOMELY.

I mean, we just had a first season that was able to do both with no issue, and we've already got complaints like that season didn't happen.

I like the episodic nature of it. Feels like a serial western. But the complaint that he was mostly paired with silent partners is a fair one.

Amy Sidaris is great, but she blows big ones on this show

Life is horsefeathers; just enjoy that it's amazing that we have this show and it's this much fun. It could have been a goddamned TV disaster so easily.

It can be both awesome and have a badly acted part.

Makes me really want an Old Republic series.

Only if Amy Sedaris was in it schticking it up like it's a 1987 episode of the Tracey Ullman Show

Star Wars has a specific kind of humor. This ain’t it.

lol - You're suggesting that the original trilogy, the prequels and the recent trilogy all had the same, specific kind of humor? Not to mention Clone Wars, Rebels, the standalone movies, books, etc.?

Or is anything not Harrison Ford or C3PO related the wrong kind of humor?

I'm saying that whatever Sedaris is doing isn't it.

I'm at the point where I just want to crush you for [expletive] on the one thing that still brings me joy. Everything else is misery, so you must be destroyed.
