Re: The Mandalorian
 
it's funny, the complaints about the show, seem to be, that it's not the show you're looking for. I've said it before, it is what it is, pure simple Star Wars fun, just like the original films.

This did aid the story, new contacts, some history with the Rebellion etc, who knows what we might find next week.

maybe you shoudl watch this and relax



I dread to think what some of you are going to say about the new Holiday special

Even if a few days or weeks or so has past. Giving them time to repair ?

that's fine but they need to at least reference and acknowledge the fact that the ship has been repaired. And if we are doing a time jump, are we also going to forget about the eggs and wanting to know the outcome of the journey and that storyline? If so, pretty pointless story and only there to justify the ship crashing and the spider attack.

You can't tell me that if they jump 3 weeks and he is now on another planet somewhere else that you don't want to know if he made it to his destination, got the eggs their safely and how he managed to get his ship repaired?

Not really. I'm assuming that if time has passed and the ship is repaired, that they made it to the planet. The eggs were delivered and the ship got repaired and they went on their merry way.

I don't need to know all the details, I can work it out in my head that the points were resolved. I can then just enjoy the next episode.

They dont "need" to do anything. ;)

I suggest you just stop watching it, and leave the rest of us keep on enjoying it.

continuity


To raise another point now that you have asked, there must be a technical term to describe a story that is told from a single person's perspective. Normally scenes would alternate between characters to progress the story and let the audience know what is happening in different locations yet The Mandalorian is solely focused on one character. The point I am trying to make is given the build up to the end of season 1, what is Moff Gideon doing and where is he? Given what has happened he hasn't shrugged his shoulders and said "well let's just move on". It is these little details I like to know if he is going to be make an appearance at some point and come back to kick ass.

Did you feel the same when Luke got his X-Wing back from Bespin City (without any explanation in the original trilogy) after he lost his hand, dropped a couple of hundred feet, and was rescued by Lando)?

Re: The Mandalorian
 
The level of detail you’re looking for would require us to have watched the Starcrest’s privy in use, after it was referenced about halfway through the episode.

Re: The Mandalorian
 
in RotJ, Leia turns up in Boushh's clothes. we were never told how the Rebels got them etc, did that bother you back then?

I think the story has been told in a book, or comic, or something since then, but at the time, we just accepted it.

I think the clue is in the title of the show. It is called The Mandalorian because the story is about him.

It is a certainty that Moff Gideon will turn up again considering Esposito has said he will play a larger role in the second season.

The story is primarily about The Mandelorian, and baby yoda (officially called The Child). I suspect Moff Gideon will be back (and the actor has already said he is involved in the season, so unless they've cast him in another part, Gideon will be back) when the story requires.

This sort of happening is one of the uses of McGuffins. How many times has Dr Who's Sonic Screwdriver suddenly gained a previously unmentioned feature when the Doctor needs to get out of a situation?

You'll probably find there is some sort of explanation involving the force, or some sort of autopilot that can take off from a planet, fly across space (including hyperspace if needed) then approach and land on another planet, or dock with a space ship with little or no pilot intervention.

Itís called first-person perspective and itís comparatively rare in film and tv. Itís much more common in literature. The demands of storytelling on film make it much harder to sustain.

Thereís a list of first-person perspective films on Wikipedia (although Iím not convinced all of them are, strictly, in that category).
