Though it would be cool to see Boba appear in the Mandalorian I'm not 100% convinced this is him in episode one.

I agree the colourings do look similar but I don't think Disney would use him as an 'Easter Egg' of sorts for no reason, especially if it meant some of the focus is taken off the title character theyre trying to establish.

And in a storyline view, why wouldnt he have taken the bounty instead of the Mandalorian....I mean hes more well known and if things are as bad as theyre made out to be then you'd think he'd take any job he could??? Image

I totally agree with you there....the second episode was amazing, I really enjoyed the nod to Indiana Jones with The Mandalorian nearly getting taken out by the rocks while on the side if the Sand crawler, very Last Crusade lol.

Im liking how the Mandalorian gets knocked around and beat up, I thought they were going to make him some kind if indestructible machine but am loving how theyve shown hes vernurable.

Bring on episode 3!

Chapter 3 - The Sin

The fights, both against the Stormtroopers* and the Bounty Hunters were fantastic. I could have done without a second extended Blacksmithing scene though, I understand it is part of his ritual but was very repetitive.
Also an inconsistency in that scene, the armourer say she will make a curiass but he ends up with a second pauldron & forearm guards. Based on the amount of Beskar he bought in the armour was justified, maybe I'm picky.

I certainly enjoyed the episode (the Mando covert all fighting together was pretty awesome), and am really looking forward to next week, but it was my least favourite so far.

*maybe not actual Stormtroopers, possibly just thugs in cast off imperial gear.
