• ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 8 Review: Disappointingly Satisfying Finale To First Season

    
 The first season of The Mandalorian has finally aired to completion. That’s right, the show that almost singlehandedly carried Disney’s streaming service during its launch is over for the time being. Sure, the second season is already underway, but for now, this is it. I’ve been a champion of the series since its debut, […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 5 Review: Star Wars Is Dewback, Baby!

 The Mandalorian series has quickly carved itself a place in the zeitgeist of mainstream pop culture. It’s not just the Baby Yoda memes either, the show is an undeniable hit on its own merits.
