"The Prisoner" opts for more world-of-the-week action, providing many fun moments but little forward momentum.
The last three episodes of "The Mandalorian" have been entirely interchangeable, and there's been zero plot developments to speak of since the titular protagonist escaped the Bounty Hunter's Guild with Baby Yoda in tow in Episode 3.
Personally, I don't mind the X-Files-esque way The Mandalorian's first season has toggled between standalone episodes and a larger story arc so much, as long as the side adventures are exciting and full of cool aliens and planets.
A tension achieved by a script that knows how to use the tropes of this kind of stories and prevents us from taking our eyes off the screen. [Full Review in Spanish]
Not as much Baby Yoda, but the Mandalorian seems to be growing into his armor finally. Bill Burr is a great bit of added chemistry to the world of Star Wars, even if he is a Butterfingers with the big-eared green kid.
"The Prisoner" -- though not the best episode of the season thus far -- is a much stronger outing than "The Gunslinger."
Despite the lack of balance between the drama and the humour, the latest Mandalorian succeeds in nearly every other area with its compelling story and neat action.
The most rollicking and entertaining entry yet.
It's a change of pace the show sorely needed at this point in the season, and the fact that it had more guest stars in crazy makeup than a Doctor Who Christmas Special was just the cherry on top.
On its own, "Chapter 6: The Prisoner" might be a perfectly fine episode. It's serviceable in every way that matters... As a piece of this season, however, it is less successful.
This episode was another fun adventure that made great use of the Star Wars mythology and dense variety of alien species, but did not feel as forced as last week's chapter.
Thus far, this scenario is one of my favorites from the series. It was unexpected and delightfully cathartic to see Mando turn into a spooky, silent killer.
With a renewed focus on its title character it's perhaps not a surprise that The Prisoner was the best episode of the series so far.
