The Mandalorian: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
The Mandalorian

Critics Consensus

Action-packed and expertly-crafted -- if at times a bit too withholding -- The Mandalorian is a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe that benefits greatly from the cuteness of its cargo.

Even those suffering Star Wars fatigue will delight in this knockout series following the adventures of hard-bitten bounty hunter Din Djarin.

Yes, the force is strong with this one.

Mar 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Here is the future of Star Wars, one not mired in the narrow threads of the movies' mythology, but a story that acknowledges that there is a whole big complicated wonderful galaxy to explore.

Nov 6, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Action-packed and exciting.

Oct 5, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

While effort is clearly made to be inclusive, The Mandalorian continues Star Wars' penchant for worlds that are overwhelmingly populated by men.

Aug 20, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Do not go in hoping for intergalactic adventures, driven by a chief mystery about who the son, the father or the grandfather of the protagonist is. Go in looking for a samurai western in Star Wars clothing - and you should be in for a pleasant surprise.

A pretty fun adventure that goes full canon, and offers insight on a character we wish we could know better. [Full review in Spanish].

Jun 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Full of great action, well timed humour and a high budget, plus some good plot threads weaved in, Mandalorian Season 1 was everything I hoped it would be.

May 12, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's one of the better [and more original] things to come out of the Disney takeover. It does, however, retreat to safer territory by the middle of the series, becoming a far more conventionally 'Star Wars' affair.

May 9, 2020 | Full Review…

The Mandalorian is a classic Western series with modern production values, set in the galaxy far, far away. Every episode is a Star Wars movie in half an hour, and a delight. And Baby Yoda is really, really cute.

May 1, 2020 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

It's lively and entertaining with colourful characters, including a wise, porcine alien voiced by Nick Nolte and a droll bounty hunter that fans of the original films will recognise. Yet, for all the money and time invested, it feels slightly thin.

Mar 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Almost single-handedly the cute critter has given this... spin-off a meme-led profile that will distract from the realisation that, although it's undoubtedly an imaginatively staged... the action does get ploddy at times.

    In this golden age of television, couldn't Jon have found help to write better shows? I love Star Wars! And yet season one was a long collection of Who Cares?
  • Feb 19, 2021
    Best TV show ever, this is absolutely one of my favorite TV shows of all time, I watched for the first time, then I watched this one again in the preparation of season 2.
  • Feb 18, 2021
    absolutely great, better than the last trilogy. And you can see why in Gallery interviews and bts.

    Some things I didnt like. Ill start with that. ITs the CHEAP managers and directors of special effects and sound that bugged me the most. The episode where he comes back to rescue the kid and he fights his way into the empires building, when he would blast someone , that laser bolt would look and sound like it really hurt. It blew a hole in the suits of the imperials. The edges of the hole would still show cinders. You could see the depth of the hole. And the black ash marks and the sparks from the impact too, all made that show legendary for me. HOWEVER it was only that one scene in that one episode where they decided to make a laser blasters effects fully shown. As IG-11 rides through the town with baby yoda on his back, he blasts trooper after trooper with not so much as a black ash mark on their suits. No matter where they get hit, the shoulder, the chest, the stomach, they all die instantly and fall down limp. Not so much as a black mark on the suits where the bolts hit. INCONSISTANT only because of one other word which shows itself over and over as the season goes on. That word is....CHEAP. Baby yoda is an alien. Hes green. He eats frogs whole. Yet his voice and sound effects are clearly from a GENERIC HUMAN BABY. Thats LAZY . Thats CHEAP. Thats literally trying to save a few bucks by not hiring a sound guy to make a new yoda baby voice that suits him. Same with the blaster effects. The sound is so cool and yet the impact is where the real emotion is and they just cheap out of that in every episode since episode 3. I hate that crap. You spend millions on special effects and budgets and you cheap out on blaster effects and sound. Another thing, ever hear of TAKE 2? Take 3? Take 4? No. Because directors these days think they can shoot a movie in one take , every TIME. The result? An embarrassing microphone hanging from a ceiling. Could have easily fixed it with a take 2. Could have easily fixed it in POST editing with a combover. But you didnt. WHY? Once again the answer is obvious. DISNEY is CHEAP. Thats the bad. The good is literally everything else you can imagine that isnt involved with being cheap. The casting is everything , no matter how good it is, the casting has to be right or it wont work. The casting is perfect here. Minus Pedro Pascal though. IN the suit the actor that does all the work is great. Pascal though, the first time I actually saw him with the helmet off, he looked like a little pansy baby who wanted to cry. I literally laughed at his face all bloodied. TERRIBLE director for not asking for another take 2 or 3. The whole time im thinking of him as an action hero, he takes off his helmet and practically whimpers like a little .... anyway I uncontrollably laughed because of the instant response I got from seeing him for the first time. So they cast his voice perfect but his face does NOT go with the helmet or body language of the mandalorian. Ive since seen all episodes in both seasons. I can tell you that everytime you see pedros face with his helmet off, his face says, Im more Pu$$y than Protector. Does he show a mean face? No. Does he show a cool persona? No. With his helmet off he looks like a suffering abuse and trauma victim. His face says...cry for me. Lol. What a joke. Should have left his helmet on and cast someone else for the face under the helmet. ITs not coincidence to find out then, that his brother is a transgender and hes a liberal nut job himself that compares conservatives to nazis but hey, he gets to keep his job and cara dune , the conservative STRAIGHT female on set gets fired for saying the same thing about liberals behavior against conservatives lately. The show though, minus its CHEAPness at times with special effects and its weak main character with his helmet off, delivers on the star wars promise of new worlds, alien creatures, space battles, and storylines. Its a fantastic show for all my criticism. Its the best star wars production since the first 3 movies. EP 4,5,6. Acting is good. Scripting is good though a bit cliche at times because its audience is rated E for everyone. Fighting is good for the most part. Cute factor is good if you can overlook the generic sound effects for baby yoda. Robots and aliens are everywhere and written into the storys very well. Its an awesome little star wars thing. It makes all the other high million dollar budget movies and JJ abrams and the other directors look like the overhyped morons that they are. This is how star wars is supposed to feel when you watch it. WELL DONE!

    La mejor serie que he visto, Star Wars ha vuelto!!, Esta serie está hecha para reparar la mala fama que dejó la nueva trilogía a la saga, y lo hace gloriosamente, Jon Fabreau es un genio, el cast es increíble, no puedo decir algo malo, y bueno, la pequeña y adorable sorpresa es lo máximo

    best star wars media by far ever

    Doesn't treat their employees right.
  • Feb 11, 2021
    It feels nothing like Star wars. Humor feels out of place. Horrible fighting acting. Too slow at times. It just feels like the creators of this show crammed the beloved characters and ships from the original Star wars in the show in order to spark some sort of nostalgia. Disappointing. Overrated. Make it free for everyone to watch PLEASE, Or stop taking advantage of young kids money and stop discontinue the star wars franchise. I say sell it to someone who will do a good job at recreating star wars.

    Two things: Epic and cute.

    The Mandalorian's first season was frankly a good show, introducing fans to a new world and a new perspective of the Star Wars universe. It was well written, well displayed by its array of characters (and Pedro Pascal), and delivered one of the best season finales. However, it may seem slow-paced to some casual audiences, although Baby Yoda himself can help ease that transition to a Star Wars geek.
