Mandalorian is good.  Be sure to watch Rogue One, or again if you've already seen it.  The best Star Wars movie for me.

I love Rogue 1.  But New Hope - Empire Strikes Back > Rogue 1 >>>>>>>> the rest.

The original and Empire will forever hold the top spot.  I still remember the utter joy of coming out of the theater having just watched the original.  I was 8 years old, the perfect age for it.  It forever warped my brain.

Yeah, I'll grant you that, for pure nostalgia love, they are tops. I saw both in the theaters, New Hope back to back (my grandmother took me and we stayed through the credits and watched it again - I have no idea how. I was like 5 years old).

But watching them all now? The first one especially doesn't hold up as well. Still fun. Just... not the same. Rogue One just feels more epic, more in touch with the whole Star Wars universe, and had a better droid sidekick. lol

I barely remember seeing New Hope in the theater.  My parents took our whole family to see it.  That is the only time I remember the whole family ever going to see a movie.  Like you guys, I think I was 5 or 6.  Darth Vader was the coolest thing for the longest time after that movie came out.

Tenet: Excellent movie. There were bits I'm sure I'll need a second viewing to pickup.  There were bits I went Aha! when I put a few things together.  It was also cool that the trailer showed things out of context, and not all the things, so doesn't give away key things, just a few bits of "ooh this should be good" but followed up with "woah, they didn't mention that would happen!

currently enjoying season 2 of the mandalorian. just finished the first season of ted lasso; thumbs up. about 3-4 episodes into titans; so far a meh. was about halfway through lovecraft country but have fallen off that one a bit. excited about the next season of the expanse, though...

I love the Expanse and can't wait for the new season.

Watching The Boys which is a very dystopian view on Super heroes.  I am about to start watching the second season.  First season was very enjoyable.

I am in the final season of Schitt's Creek.  I have been very surprised by this sit-com.  Highly recommended. 

Mandalorian Season 2. Mostly meh.  But enjoyable enough.

Great British Baking Show - this is something that my wife and I enjoy watching.  Which is ridiculous because she is gluten free and we are both not eating diary.  But it is good mindless fun.

next season of the expanse is out. amazon released the first 3 eps in one go, with weekly episodes going forward i believe. they also renewed it for 1 more (final) season, which should more or less cover the first 6 books. probably a natural stopping point, but curious if they stick with the books or run with other potentially unresolved plot lines. they also fired the actor that plays alex kamal for the final season, so either a recast or some story changes to come.

I haven't started the new season yet.  Debating waiting for them all to be out first.

Right now watching Bosch which is good enough but not great.  At least so far.

So finished the Mandalorian, it got a decent (9.9) rating on IMDB.  Who else has seen it?

I have watched both seasons.  I enjoy it but find it be less than great.  Good popcorn entertainment.

I got sidetracked a few episodes in, but it's high on my list to catch up on.

But first I need to finish The Clone Wars, which I have like a bazillion seasons to watch still...

The wife and I just finished up Season 2 of the Mandalorian and we loved loved loved it!

Very excited to see what happens next, but it's going to be a while before that happens.
