    • Well, you were partly right. Disney+ isn't available in Malaysia, but that has never stopped me from watching anything I wanted to (I caught your drift lol). I'm a casual Star Wars fan too like you, but I just don't have the desire to watch this show at the moment. My interest in the upcoming movie is rather tepid as well. I guess I've just lost interest in the franchise as a whole. Maybe one day I'll watch it, but for now it's definitely not on my radar.

    • Seeing Nick Nolte in the credits

      I agree I was a little taken aback when I saw that along with Taika Waititi's name. Kuiil does resemble Nolte but it was a nice subversion of audience expectations to make him a dwarf. Similar to Peter Dinklage's treatment in Avengers: Infinity War.

      I have similar feelings for the X-men franchise. I think I was with them until X-men: The Last Stand. The rest of the movies with the exception of Logan did not catch my fancy at all.

      Maybe one day I'll watch it

      I hope you change your mind and watch it someday soon, because I feel you will genuinely enjoy it. 😊

    • It's... meh. I mean, sure, the production values are top-notch, the best money can buy. Visuals, effects, costumes - Hollywood blockbusters level. But, the characters and the story... Well, I'm going to watch it just as a shared experience with my kid.

    • Interesting.. I thought the characters were nicely done. The main protagonist himself is a man(dalorian) of few words, and apart from Kuiil which is Nick Nolte's character there are hardly any central characters yet. The IG-11 Droid voiced by Taika Waititi was cool yet funny and I was actually hoping they would carry on with their unlikely alliance through the rest of the episodes.

    • @Ravi , I watched Chapter 2, “The Child”. Funny as hell and it was great to see the Jawa as a major part of the story: the glowing red eyes and the hoods made them a quirky piece of the original Star Wars movies. I totally get @jpop ’s point that this isn’t high drama. But if you enjoy it for what it is, it’s a fun little series.

    • I absolutely agree with that observation. Not exactly a spoiler but this happens in episode 3 as well. Surprising that they cracked hyperspace jumps but can't devise a simple biometric lock for their ships. 🙄
