The Mandalorian is a new Star Wars show streaming on Disney+. It currently only has one season, but it seems to have been received well. It follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter, most call him "Mando." He gets a great bounty, which leads to the plot of the first season. The season kind of ends on a cliff hanger, showing that there is (or could be) more to come. I do believe it has been given a green light for season two.

One thing that sets this show apart from the Star Wars movies and other shows (like The Clone Wars) is that it is entirely outside of the Skywalker Saga. I think it was done very well and it is nice to see a piece of the Star Wars universe outside of it's usual main story line and characters. Mando does visit some familiar places and meet some familiar species. One thing I really like about this show is that it has a good bit of Star Wars lore in it. We get to learn a bit more about the Mandalorians and I predict we may learn more about another species that I won't spoil (*hint* there's something very adorable in this series).

I strongly recommend watching The Mandalorian. I think this is a good show to binge watch. I was disappointed to learn that each episode is only half an hour long, but the show makes very good use of that time, it is well worth it. I also like the music (like Mando's flute theme) and the opening show bit, which is very short and awesome.

As Star Wars is pretty much a sci-fi western, The Mandalorian fits this very well. Star Wars was created with the influence of westerns and Japanese media (the world "Jedi" is from a Japanese word). If you like Star Wars, definitely check this out! I really doubt you'll dislike it at all.

I also like that the main character played a character I liked in Game of Thrones. I think he makes the third actor from Game of Thrones that's starred in a Star Wars show or movie. (*Edit* Travis pointed out to me in the comments that there are a lot more than I realized.)

I just remembered, this list is missing another I recognized in the Mandalorian episode "The Prisoner" actress Natalia Tena (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1164730/).

Yep! I think the list was made before that episode aired so good call. She’s also Tonks in Harry Potter and has a pretty good band too.
