Anybody use the free trial of Disney+ to binge this show?!

Obviously, it hasn't been released outside NA yet, so please *avoid big spoilers* but I thought it would be fun to discuss overall impressions of the show and how it fits into the Star Wars Universe.

Personally, I was a bit hesitant when I heard the concept (never been a big Boba Fest fan) and wasn't even sure I wanted to watch it. My husband, however, was quite keen and my kids were curious enough since we'd watched Clone Wars, so we decided to give it a go. I was instantly hooked! Santa brought our family lots of Mando t-shirts and I'm seriously contemplating what merchandise I want to preorder!

I got Disney+ when it came out, so I didn't get to binge it, I had to wait weekly with temptation (and it was tough! )

The first episode was very cool. I had no idea anything about the series, and I actually thought that the main character was Boba Fett himself, I was intentionally avoiding reading any plots/watching trailers/etc. since they tend to give a lot away these days. So once I saw "The Child" at the end, I was completely shocked.

Episode 2 was very boring to me, and after I watched it, I questioned if the rest of the series would be just as slow. I wonder how many people watched the first one, thought it was interesting, then got so bored with the second that they just gave up with the series entirely.

Episode 3 more than made up for it, though. The final scenes in that episode were exactly what I wanted from a live action Star Wars series, and they delivered handsomely.

The rest of the episodes were a mix of "very good", "great", or "fantastic". I'm very excited for Season 2... which isn't coming out til fall

I have spoken.

The main reason to own Disney+ right now, imo, is the Mandalorian. Shocking that Tony Stark’s driver (Happy Hogan) is the one who created it.

I also got Disney+ on launch, as well! My poor kids were in agony having to wait for new episodes; my husband and I were most unsympathetic.

I think what we were most pleasantly surprised at was that a rather predictable format could still result in such riveting shows. I can’t wait for the next season.
