At least there’s a gap in between BCS and BB. Seeing the much bigger Todd in El Camino, that was jarring.

A game has to be pretty damn amazing for me to drop $260 on it. The Half-Life name alone isn’t enough to do that.

Yeah, I don’t care what the bartender is mixing up, I wouldn’t gamble on a drink in Dubai.

Tourists are allowed to drink, but there are still strict rules on where it’s allowed - mostly bars and restaurants attached to hotels. Even if you confine your actual drinking to a private bar, you can face a 6-month jail sentence for public intoxication if you’re recognizably drunk outside a bar.

The Force can have a strong influence on the weak minded.

The Jawas generally weren’t directly threatening his life, but they were effectively going to leave him marooned on an inhospitable wasteland planet. I’m not sure what options he really had in that situation. The mud horn he straight up ganked, but that was kind of on the Jawas, too.

Yeah, same here. Looking at Solo and the comedy elements of TLJ (especially Poe’s opening ‘Crank Yankers’ bit), and of course the huge success of the MCU, I was expecting they’d just make more of the same. To get something like this is almost a shock, and to do it so well... I feel like I want to write Favreau a thank Read more

Absolutely. I came into the series expecting something Whedon-esque with the dialogue and story, but Favreau has absolutely surprised me by going entirely the other way. He and Filoni must have been given a ton of freedom on this job, as I almost can’t believe Disney would commit so much money and brand cache to such Read more

you spend most of it staring at helmet with zero articulation being worn by a character who rarely speaks.

That would solve the McDonald’s issue, but then your cashless buying power is locked into purchases at McDonald’s. A debit card would work anywhere that has the ability to make cashless transactions.

I’ve expected Rey to be a vergence like Anakin pretty much from the beginning. It’s just about the only thing that explains her strength with the Force and ability to use it with virtually no training. I wouldn’t have predicted Palpatine was behind it necessarily, but it answers a lot of questions.

I don’t think anyone’s mentioned this yet, but the doctor that is working with the Imperials, he has a patch on the sleeve of his jacket that looks like the icon of the Kaminoans from AotC. If that’s what it is, it likely means the doctor is involved in a genetics/cloning project and that’s what he wants the baby Read more

There’s that whistling sound throughout that is obviously an homage to Morricone’s score for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and it fits so well.

I think those were all nicknames and whatnot, given to him by other characters so they had something to address him by. I don’t remember him ever actually giving anyone his name.

His jetpack malfunctioned when it got hit on the skiff, which is what sent him crashing into the Sarclacc in the first place.

Pascal’s delivery is so like Eastwood’s Man With No Name that I can’t stop looking at this show as a western.

It’s incredible that Jon Favreau is responsible for launching the MCU *and* live-action TV Star Wars. He really doesn’t get recognition equal to his success.

Sounds like different employers. The droid said he had orders to kill, but that wasn’t the Mandalorian’s first directive.
