, has just a few main characters. say Better Call Saul. there are just 3 or 4 main characters. well its 5 now. but not much happens even then. its all about the slow burn and as it progresses you get a faster pace

oh look old school fucking idiot that knows nothing about TV Chuk has re-emerged.

Better Call Saul is easily one of the best shows on TV - if not one of the only actually top tier shows still running. The whole point of Better Call Saul is that the slow pace allows for maximum character development - that's literally the entire point, it's masterful storytelling.

This show is NOTHING like Better Call Saul and you should go drown yourself for mentioning it in the same breath

Meh felt like a filler episode. They just did a mando fights big monster in the 1st episode of the season and now the second. Hope he is not still traveling with frog lady to the planet not so far away next episode.

You guys do recall this is on Disney, right? Anyone expecting major development is asking a lot. This is like Hercules/Xena in space.

People watch the credits?

Hell yeah, I really like the credits because the music is good and I love looking at the illustrations / storyboard for the episode that I just watched. I don't read the names at all though..

As far as this episodes goes, I liked it. I'm enjoying the monster-of-the-week / sidequest episodes because they just add to the world building, sprinkle some cameos and easter eggs, and I'm not looking for a big overarching OMG plot in the first place, so I'm not really disappointed.

That episode was stupid.

I hate shows that show villains(Spiders) running at a much faster rate than the ones being chased and yet never catching up. He shot a few but all of the rest quickly replaced the area and then in the next clip...he is farther away again.

How did the pilots in the X-wing fly down into the cave......like Ninjas?? The thrust from an X-wing and the sound would have certainly alerted both the spiders and the mandalorian to their presence long before they started firing lasers. I guess the pilots put the X-wings on their backs and jumped down. Then they placed them back down and got on them for a defensive position.

This episode was fun, if you are 10. Creepy spiders, crying little baby and the baby sitter. Take away the sci-fi and this could have been a story plot in Australia.

Please advance the story line now or is the story line that weak.

spiders in general cant run. i mean yes, if you see one move, they sprint really fast, but its only for a short distance.the x wings were down there through the tunnel. nothing ninja about it when you saw them leave.

I mean, the obvious highlight wasn't the spiders, it was baby Yoda murdering the younglings of a dying race. And it was great.
Spiders looked cool, which is basically all you can ask from a one-shot TV episode. Who cares why they were there or what their story was? SPACE SPIDERS! IN ICE! ICE SPIDERS!

I liked the episode; it was certainly a little slower than the previous episode but that's fine as well. Likely we'll see the frog lady dropped off at the start of the next episode to tie it up (I mean, most of his inter-planet travel is handwaved away anyway) and on to the next hijinks. Likely something directly related to the "main" story because that would make sense. Couple episodes of Supernatural before you get to something story related, then back to monster of the week for a couple episodes.

Also kinda fitting that the bug episode was done by the Ant-Man director Peyton Reed.

i keep forgetting to mention... what on earth was mando thinking, waiting so long to use his flamethrower... that should have been the go to weapon. he should have just stood there at the pool just cindering all those spiders, but no. he uses his pistol to shoot one at a time.

he had to use his explosives, because if he didnt do that and give away his location, internet edgelords would call the x wing pilots, ninjas.
