Any sane person would probably take a break from this series for the remainder of December. Seeing as how I’ve got a ton of top ten entries to be writing. I couldn’t do that though, I’m on a roll of not missing one of these Clone Wars uploads for months, and I would be crazy to try and get out of it now.
Plus, with all these new Star Wars series getting announced, I’m becoming increasingly aware that I need to catch up to Rebels after finishing Clone Wars if I want to feel like I’m up to date on everything.
Anyway, we’re into season 5.
While there have been no bad episode of the Mandalorian this second season, there has certainly been a trend of a very exciting episode being following by a good, but not amazing one. “The Jedi” certainly continues that trend by being one of the best episodes of the show in its entirety so far. Reintroducing a much anticipated character into the show while also giving us some genuine backstory the Baby Yoda himself.
Which means that might be the last time I playfully refer to “The Child” as Baby Yoda.
Last week’s episode, The Passenger, left me feeling a little flat. I enjoyed it enough, but in a series that’s been promising to use existing characters from the wider lore, a self-contained, monster of the week, style episode such as that left me a little frustrated. Although I could rest assured by the end as this third episode of the second series proved to be many times more satisfying to me as a Star Wars nerd.
