    I thought this was a really fun episode. I really enjoyed Timothy Olyphant's character as town sheriff. It was pretty funny seeing Mandos reaction to Timothy immediately taking off his helmet and revealing himself as not being a real Mandalorian. I thought the western theme was particularly strong this episode with the little desert town and the local politics and issues of gangs and raiders they faced. The fight with the dragon was really exciting and I was particularly glad to see the use of the jetpacks in action. It seems like they really ramped up the special effects budget which was nice. Overall a solid start to the season for me.

      Those all could have been shown in a worse manner.

    Great ep, glad to see Yoda continue to develop. I don't expect they'll show any of their musical talents (unless there is a timeskip) but would be really nice to see more singing. Mandalorian also has a long way to go before he can really live up to the mantle of Boba but at least he has the look down pat, appreciating the subtle redesign. Very excited to see what happens and whether they will finally visit Earth.

      I'm still waiting for the lead to find his Mandolin. If they tease that out for the entire run, but we never hear him perform, I'm going to be so upset.
