Geez, why do you guys hate this episode so much? I thought it was good. Not the best episode ever, but not an abomination against the Star Wars franchise as we know it like some of you guys are acting.

I was enjoying the episode just fine until Luke showed up to do the same eye-roll videogame bullshit that Vader did in Rogue One, and then he took off his cloak and looked like a videogame character, and then it just kept going and didn’t resolve the much more interesting conflict that had just arisen (Mando vs. Bo-Katan and the implications of that whole thing), nor even make it a cliffhanger - it’s just…forgotten about while Luke takes Grogu and then…credits.

It was a good episode that was ruined by a last 10-ish minutes that really, really, REALLY didn’t work for me in just about every way.

And then the post-credits scene happened and I just checked out. I have zero interest in the Continuing Adventures of Boba Fett, so that just left an even worse taste in my mouth.

The horror-movie angle with the Darktroopers and the Mando v. Gideon fight were all excellent though, no complaints with all of that. And, again - super invested in whatever ends up happening between Mando and Bo-Katan with the Darksaber.
