Links have have been updated. File related posts *might* be removed.
The BvS .mkv rip is supposedly 1080p. The ION10 .mp4 is a webrip at 720x302 resolution.

Thank you for flying MF

Exquisite!

I loved almost everything about it. Impressive production design, flawless visual effects, snappy plot progression, Morricone-inspired music, plenty of fan-service, solid performances and conservative, Lucasian cinematography. I guess the only thing I didn't take to was the flashback sequence but that's negligible.

My worst fear was that they'd try to accommodate any budget limitations by stretching out and risking tedium with certain set pieces or dialogue scenes. Thankfully, that didn't seem to be the case. So far, anyway. This first episode maintained the consistency of a feature film through and through. Most impressive.

Filoni definitely has the chops for live-action. Bravo! More!

What a great episode! Reminds me of the good old times back in the 90s when we played endless nights of the epic Pen & Paper RPG from West End Games. Especially the end really struck me. Already love this show and can't wait to meet Cara Dune! The only complaint I have (but that's surely not the fault of the makers) is that I couldn't understand everything they said. As a German I could understand Werner Herzog very well of course but the rest (except Nick Nolte and some utterances of the Mando) was quite difficult to get. Maybe somebody does some subtitles in the future?
And a big thanks to Lord Psychotic for uploading this fine piece of Star Wars (a rarely gem in these dark times) since unfortunately we here have to wait for Disney+ till March 31st.

Holy Shit. I just downloaded and watched this (thanks, DP), and I am also hooked.

The ending totally threw me. One of the best SW twists ever. :?

I happy if you're happy, SithWitch.

I enjoyed it, but found it a little short on substance. The stuff about the little green guy should be interesting. We'll see.

Isn't one of the very first lines ... "E-Chuta"? I thought you would like that 'Chu ...
The little green guy was a delightful surprise. I was so happy to see familiar aliens.
What planets were they on? So many, so fast.
I want a Razorcrest! Do they make them in blue?

I didn't catch the "E Chu Ta!" at the beginning.

I'm surprised how underwhelmed I felt during the entire episode. I didn't really feel into it until the back-and-forth with IG-11.

I don't fault Filoni. The episode was well shot ,and the shoot-out was well staged and edited.

Maybe it's the combination of first episode plus a masked main charterer that made me feel detached.

Because of the show's early buzz, there's talk of potentially re-purposing the series into a film franchise. That's an interesting idea.

BTW: The video below does a solid job of tying the episode into Rebels, TCW, the PT, and OT.

Wow, this was really good. I'm not lying when I say that this was the first time since Disney took over Star Wars that i've wholeheartedly enjoyed one of their products.

I'm still feeling really burned by them overall, but if they can keep producing stuff like this they may win me back over.

After being so disappointed (and giving up on) the sequel trilogy, this is like a breath of fresh air. The Mandalorian has sated my appetite for authentic Star Wars. Felt genuine to me - very Lucasian and hit all the right notes; the lore, the mythological tropes, the world building, the classic aliens, droids, creatures and so much more.

This thing is miles ahead of the sequels, Solo and even Rogue One (which was my fave until now) loved the characters and all the little easter eggs too. Let's hope they can keep the momentum going.

Its that Filloni / Lucas magic we got in the later Clone Wars seasons. Great to see it work in live action.

It was a good pitch episode. I think Friday will be the more telling episode.
