"The Passenger" has set-pieces in spades, but viewers looking for more narrative thrust may find it's spectacular wheel-spinning more frustrating than fun.
This episode can be a little sly with [its] plotting, however sporadically thrilling.
Three major action setpieces in a 40-minute episode. For all that big-budget spectacle, we don't learn anything new about anything that actually matters within the context of the show.
I thought [the chase sequence into that snow planet with x-wing fighters] was fantastic.
It's got a lot of heart and a lot of really great action sequences.
Good though it was, "The Passenger" does leave me hoping that next week they ... meet some other Mandalorians at last, because it's time for something new to happen.
There's a lot of cool stuff inside of Star Wars in general here...fan service but it doesn't beat you over the head...
The second episode of Season 2 didn't advance the story or pack a surprise like last week's premiere, but "The Passenger" still appeals to the less lore-obsessed side of the series' audience.
It's a moment that works so well because of all the history that the franchise has with the iconic starfighters.
Sure, it wasn't quite as epic as last week's and it didn't really advance the overarching story much, but it was exciting and hilarious and showed us a whole new side of Baby Yoda. A hungry side. A dangerous side.
The season premiere was not quite as impressive as I had hoped but was a solid STAR WARS story with some good special effects. "The Passenger" still doesn't add much to the overall story but once again looks damn impressive.
This is a show that, for better or worse, wants to tell these smaller, self-contained stories of adventure. It's a modest but very attainable goal that the show has set for itself.
The Mandalorian has never been one for pushing its plot at a rapid rate, but this is going nowhere at this point.
