First episode came out today. The show continues to be very strong. I’m not sure if he’s directing any other episodes this season, but Jon Favreau’s work here would be deserving of a nomination. The episode’s special guest might make a decent nod too, though the way they ended things makes me pretty sure he’ll be seen again this season and he might exceed episode count. Also shoutout to Pedro Pascal. This role has never offered him any great showcases, but he’s always done a great job with body language and vocal inflections nonetheless. Excited for the rest of this season.October 30, 2020 at 5:35 pm #1203812319
I really enjoyed this episode. The first half was a bit awkward, but it got really enjoyable in the second half. I also can’t wait to see what they do with Boba Fett.November 6, 2020 at 5:28 pm #1203821675
Another strong episode. I will say though, I’m feeling pretty iffy on Amy Sedaris. She’s not necessarily bad, but it feels like she’s on some kind of different wavelength from the rest of the show, and her scenes have been distracting. I don’t recall her being like that in the first season, but I just hope she tones it down a bit if she pops up again.November 8, 2020 at 12:01 am #1203822919
Do you consider the mandalorian to be a procedural/episodic/half anthology? Or do you consider it a serialized drama?November 13, 2020 at 10:25 pm #1203835977
Damn episode 3 was really great. The action and story. Im really impressed, this episode has got to be one of the shows highs, showing that you don’t need baby yoda as main feature in an episode to be great.
Don’t get me wrong i still love that baby with all my heart. But this episode shows that there is hope if baby yoda is no longer in the show.December 5, 2020 at 6:50 am #1203895771
It seems that Giancarlo Esposito will be Supporting this year.
So far, great season.December 5, 2020 at 8:51 am #1203895963
Damn i must say Jon Favreau is turning it out so far. I thought it was gonna be hard to top the last episode but this episode hits it out the park.
Getting better and better as the season goes. Looking like a viable contenderDecember 5, 2020 at 12:24 pm #1203896560
This season is definitely better than the first. These last two episodes have been excellent, especially last week’s, which is contending with the first season finale as by far the show’s best episode in my book.
Giancarlo looks to be supporting this year. I hope they give him a decent amount of material in these best two episodes, as so far, he feels far more guest in terms of presence. The show could possibly get other guest actors into play next year, like Olyphant and Dawson, though it’s harder to say since they don’t have the same established Emmy presence than Esposito did. But considering things look empty, it could happen.December 7, 2020 at 6:50 pm #1203901802
How I see episode submissions thus far:
“Chapter 9: The Marshal”
“Chapter 10: The Passenger”
“Chapter 13: The Jedi”
GUEST ACTRESS: DAWSON
“Chapter 14: The Tragedy”

Just finished with their recent episode (Chapter 14) and so far I am impressed! Not going to lie, at first I was hesitant to watch this series because of the Baby Yoda fame but after watching S1 and most of S2 I’m glad I kept going.December 11, 2020 at 11:24 am #1203912219
I think it is a big mistake to have Giancarlo Esposito in Supporting. His role this season is still a guest in my book, and in Supporting he has no chance of getting nominated.December 11, 2020 at 6:36 pm #1203913130

I think they were more focused on doing what they wanted to do than worrying about whose guest eligible.
And it’s true, no matter how prominent he is in the last episode, he’s clearly been a guest this season. Pascal is the only member of the main cast.
Anyway, these last few episode have been excellent. Hoping they stick the landing with the finale, which I’m sure they’ll do.December 12, 2020 at 6:28 pm #1203915645
Bull Burr should be a guest contender.
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor
