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.

Critic Reviews for The Mandalorian Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

This is a visually stunning, consistently entertaining space-spaghetti-Western serial.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Favreau is as brilliant a fanboy writer as he is a fanboy director, and in Filoni, a true padawan to Star Wars creator George Lucas, he has found a great collaborator. Between them they might have simply made a great TV show.

Even dug-in purists who haven't enjoyed a single Star Wars thing since Return of the Jedi might find themselves loving this exquisitely judged new series

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a polished production that shows off every cent of its feature film budget on every frame of its run time. This isn't a "made-for-TV Star Wars, " it's a Star Wars that happens to be on TV, or streaming, as it were.

overall the first installment makes for a bumpy ride

Dec 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Few shows are this well crafted. Favreau and Filoni have tapped into something special, and I never thought I would say a Star Wars show could surpass the content of the films

Nov 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A Western [as] much about societal decline as it is about survival and cool-sounding one-liners...

    This is what Star Wars SHOULD have been all along. Forget the fact that baby Yoda has stolen the show. It has great visuals and character development so far and just enough questions to keep you coming back for more.

    About time Star Wars got it right...

    This is the only good Star Wars, so far, to come from Disney. For a character that wears a helmet, he emotes expression mere than any character from the so called "Skywalker Saga" Which JJ Abrams is sure to make go from horrible to freaking mentally handicapped. (I will never forgive Disney for destroying the character and reputations of Han, Luke, and Leia). So it really is nice to see an actual Star Wars series of some kind after the Prequel abomination and the Disney crap fest

    Boomer, Ok Star wars in serie, do in need to say more? if so, it gives me the rogue-one vibes and that's "Noice".
  • 19h ago
    Refreshing attempt at episodic storytelling, without the all-too-prevalent (and utterly unrealistic) urge to make every story a wannabe earth-shattering "event".

    Everything I wanted the Sequel Trilogy to be.

    So far, having made it to episode 4, which is very clearly the weakest link so far, I am overall very impressed with The Mandalorian. There is a LOT of fan-service here, in fact the fan-service is so deep they actually hired actual cos-play fans to be the stormtroopers(!). The Fandom Menace clearly is having an impact and evoking much fear. An Unusual amount of fear... for a simple trade negotiation... There are missteps for sure. The first episode felt more like a first person video game, with requisite level ups and armour upgrades, quests, and npc interactions. A game is almost Certainly on the way, too. But when this space western shines, it shines brightly, from the myriad of non-cgi alien characters, the gleaming chrome of Mando's ship, the odd quirky world that is Star Wars (the original series) in all it's dirty lived in splendor. Pedro Pascal does a fantastic job acting from under a helmet, portraying a very Clint Eastwood spaghetti western style character, often beset by bad luck (or giant charging rhinos) in a chaotic galaxy that is falling into lawless chaos after the destruction of the second Death Star. We are treated to old characters and new. In the first episode, we get to see the awesome fighting ability of an IG series combat droid bounty hunter. In episode two, we are treated to the original movie's desert scallywags, the Jawas. While for some bizarre reason, we cannot call the Jawa vehicle by it's correct name ('Sandcrawler') perhaps Disney did not purchase that name from Lucas, it is still shown in all of it's majestic grandeur. The show makes a point of revisting classic Star Wars original series vehicles and showing them in a new light. The easily defeated jawa vehicle from Episode 4 A New Hope is shown as it truly is: A gigantic rolling fortress on tracks, virtually impossible to storm while on the roll. Similarly, in Episode 4, an ex Imperial light scout walker is shown as it would appear to a primitive tribe, like some sort of War of the Worlds tripod god-like mechanical beast. I hope they continue this theme, it is a refreshing new take. I'm all-in for this return to the Star Wars of my youth, and happily signed on to the Evil Mouse Empire's streaming service just for this show. Now if only they can pull this off with the upcoming Kenobi series, my Faith in the Force will be restored.
