This show has a lot of the heart of the old Star Wars trilogy that seems to have been missing in the Disney endeavors to date (save maybe Rogue One). The focus in The Mandalorian is on storytelling, with the story being along the lines of what you would find in some of those old school western films, and that's a good thing. Plus it's really fascinating to see the state of the Galaxy following the Empires collapse (you even see a Governor-turned-criminal-kingpin guarded by some really rough rough looking Stormtroopers).
The acting is well done, particularly from the star Pedro Pascal as the Mandalorian himself. While we never see his face, Pedro is accomplishing a lot from his body language and the way that he delivering his lines. While the special effects are very good for a TV series there are times where you can tell the CG is a little lower quality due to budget constraints. Fortunately the show relies a lot more on some really good practical effects more than on CG.
All-in-all, I highly recommend The Mandalorian.
After watching the pilot I would recommend staying far away from this series. The writing is nonsensical and the acting, particularly from lead actor Ruby Rose, is atrocious.
