I was pretty disappointed with this episode. Not as confused with finding itself as the first episode was, but, sad to say, this episode was even clunkier than E01. That TV budget really showed.
Honestly, The Expanse's special effects are consistently more convincing than what we're seeing half the time in The Mandalorian.
And this episode's writing... It felt like a typical TV show. It had none of that cool and tense Lone Wolf & Cub vibe to it either. It strongly reminded me of the old live action The Incredible Hulk TV series that starred Lou Ferrigno. I was practically expecting the Mandalorian to take his helmet off and we'd see the head of Bill Bixby there.
And that scout walker - was it pilotless? It sure looked like it.
Was it outfitted with a Super Battledroid's brain? I don't know.
Don't really care. Such a clunky episode.
The melee fighting looked dreadful. Without question, the worst of all of the series so far. The acting was subpar, sometimes awful. The woman from Deadpool - yeah, she should not get another acting job ever. It felt like a filler type episode. We don't need those, at all. Disney + needs to stay away from episodes such as these like the plague they are.
