Critic Reviews for Chapter 9: The Marshal

Best of all, I left this new episode eager to see what comes next, and a little annoyed with Disney+ that they don't follow Netflix's binge model and drop an entire season at once.

[The Mandalorian] proves with one of its best episodes yet that it still has a lot of flair, inspiration, and jetpack fuel to go around.

Series creator Jon Favreau knows the sweet spots for lovers of the original trilogy and he keeps fans on a fast dopamine drip of nostalgia hits while keeping the visual spectacle big and knowing when to tuck tongue into cheek.

The premiere episode The Marshal seems epic, as much a reaction to Favreau's delight at playing in the literal sandbox of Tatooine, as it is meeting the hunger of a passionate fandom who have waited a year for the second season. This is the way.

Olyphant really is perfect for delivering folksy dialogue like my new favorite saying, "I guess every once in a while, both suns shine on a womp rat's tail."

For me the things that I loved the most is just the little details of the world, the different beings, the different creatures that populate and just how good they look.

That was a nice way to kick off the season.

As season openers go, 'The Marshal' doesn't try to leap itself forward with a convoluted story for the episodes ahead. It's got a swagger to it now, it knows where it's going, and it's not overly concerned with when or how it gets there.

I like the simple premise of this episode. It was a good reintroduction to the world of the Mandalorian.

The 52-minute offering was satisfying from start-to-finish, featuring stunning cinematography, a creepy villain, and a whole lot of easter eggs.
