Hi Everyone, and welcome back to how have we never seen this before? This week we watched the MANDALORIAN. Join us as we discuss whether or not the Mandalorian is hot, what it takes to join the lollipop guild and the lengths we would go to you for baby Yoda, our son. This is a podcast where two best friends talk about movies they've never seen before. I'm Isabelle and I'm Lauren, and this is how have we never seen this before? Hello, hi, everyone. I feel like we say this every week, but we're finally back. You're right, we always take like a week break and we're like, you know, we'll see you next week and then we see you in two weeks. But we it's a rough yere. We need we need breaks, and it was Thanksgiving and, yeah, the amount of TV that we have to watch. Yeah, I don't think we're going to do shows again. It's just like four times the work of movies usually. So next week, definitely next week, will be our final episode of season two. We will take a week off, we will do it and it's going to be our Christmas episode and it's gonna be great and then we'll see you on the new year when everything is hopefully better. Yeah, we can only hope and pray. Yeah, but I think some good news for taking off two weeks is that we can announce in two weeks we got another hundred followers, where at four hundred, Ye, which is May. He's crack. So thank you. You're all wonderful and, yeah, yeah, thanks for all the support. Yep. Also how to say yeah, we did it. Guys. It's also like later at night right now, like I feel like whenever we record at night, it's always like pandemonium. Yeah, we usually, like I feel like we're years, are pretty good about like middle of the day morning, but I live at school usually and now I'm home, so things are different. Is The wrong with you? I don't know. Okay, HMM, we've got a we've got a one for you this week. This week be yowed up, baby, baby yode, baby yode. Have you seen that on ticktle a sound town star wars, Tick Tock, even though they tried to force it on me for well, I mean I'm on jail talk, so I'm on North Korea. Tick Tock. Now I've seen that too, oh my God. And Vampires are real, everybody. There's also vampire. Tick Tock. Okay, so let's this week we talked about Star Wars. I don't know, we didn't need ever talk to me. This week we watched the Mandalorian a star Wars TV show, and preface this, we generally do not know star wars. I have...

...seen the middle three and then the first two of the last grouping. I think that's all I remember. Okay, yeah, I've seen all of the OGE movies and the one with Hayden Christensen. That one, what's that? It's the one where he's like anakin before he turns into Darth vader. I are that's like the first three. Thinking about them as numbers, it's the first three, but it's technically the second three from when they created them. Okay, but yeah, so I just saw like the og ones and don't the one with Hayden Christensen. And but what? Where I really got my star wars knowledge was from when I used to play Star Wars Battle Front with my brother on the original xbox. When I was like five, I played Um Lego Star Wars on my Nintendo DS. Miles, if you're listening, I think we stole that from you when we were children. So my apologies, but I had a good time. He honestly might be listening. Okay, so, yeah, do you want to give a brief sitopsis? I mean basically, we've got this bounty hunter. He is doing his bounty hunter thing and he's given the task of finding this thing. We don't know what it is. No, that's what I don't tell him what it is. It's a thing and he goes and then he falls in love with it and takes care of it all the way. Think Though, Oh, now that way it's a child. That's a child. He he, like he, he, he starts to care for I don't know why, though, like I'll talk about later, but I know I because it's baby fucking Yoda. Like, yes, it's adorable, but like he does. He seems like he shouldn't be like a coldhearted killer, and he's just like he just takes one look at it. He's like, Nope, number mine. But anyway, it's just like him. grinch. He's told us anything, it's that your heart can grow three sizes. I don't want to think about the grinch. And Matthew Morrison actually have something to bring up later that involves him. WHO. But yeah, so I I hope that gave you a good idea of what this show is about. Probably not, but we don't have any characters to discuss. Like there's the Mandalorian and like baby Yoda, but like baby Yoda is cute and that's his character trait. Baby Yoda is so much more than that. How dare you? Okay, sure, that's all I'm gonna say for now. I won't give anything away, obviously, and we've got the MANDALORIAN. But yeah, okay, should should I start with episode one? It's do I don't know. Do you want to explain the mandalor it all, because I feel like there's like not much to him at all. Till the end of the show, at the season, I think we'll like as we go on, like will he'll will find out more about him, you know, yeah, as we yape. Good. Okay, so episode one, the pilot of the Mandalorian, it starts off. Okay, so maybe I should preface this with I was really confused at the beginning. They don't really let you in on much of the story in this episode.

You kind of get everything in bits and pieces. So what this like? It doesn't make sense right away. What's going on, which is like the point of it. Yeah, so, yeah, so it starts off with this random guy being a bully in a bar and all of the sudden the mandalorian comes in and he he like saves the day, but then he takes the guy that he's after onto a ship. Dude kind of looks like a fish. He takes him through this the Fishman, through a snowy planet because, you know, he's a bounty hunter. He's got to get back to a ship. They take a dangerous route. There's a dangerous ice monster lurking who attacks them. Yeah, and they escape and ship and and so the fish dude whom he captured is asking a lot of questions, but, you know, the bounty hunter it came the Mandalorian is not responding. He's like can I go to the bathroom? He doesn't respond, so he just goes. He's looking for an escape really, and then he turns around like a corridor and sees that there's a bunch of people like frozen in this thing that like Han Solo was frozen in that one time. Yeah, yeah, so that's the thing I know from Lego Star Wars. That's like the character in Lego Star Wars like you're this brick. I don't that's all I know about it. That's it. Yeah, so that's yeah, I know that from watching the movies, but that that like stuck out to me when I was a child. And so, yeah, that scene ends and now he's at a different bar and he's talking to a guy that looks familiar. He probably isn't, does look really familiar. He's definitely in something we know. But his name is grief cargo, I think that's how you pronounce his name. and He, the Mandalorian, dropped this the fish dude off to grief cargo and he collects his money because there's like some sort of bounty hunter guild. I just think the wizard of Oz whenever I hear the word the pop killed. Yeah, seeing that Song, you know, Oh my God. Okay, but moving on. So the Lollipop Guild, Oh, the bounty hunter guild is this thing that all of these people are a part of, and GROEF cargo seems to be at the top. He has a high position in this guild. And so the currency that he gave the Mandalorian was called Calamari Flan, which doesn't because, like Calamari is an Italians squid dish and flawn is a Spanish dessert. So I was just wondering who named it that. It's just a giant brick. Yeah, of metal. Yeah, it's just bizarre. Um. Oh. He also gives him a chip, like a yeah, that metal chip? Or No, yes, the chip for the next person, right, yes, yes, yes, yes, yeah, wait, no, Oh, yes, okay, he's sorry, I'm you're gonna have to cut so much out. I'm so sorry. Okay, okay. So now he gets this chip and he's told to go see this other dude for another bounty hunting mission, and so he goes somewhere else and gets...

...kind of ambushed by clone troopers and they're like all in this room and this old dudes there and a doctor. But he realizes that his mission is for these x imperial people, so that the time frame of the show takes place after the imperial empire collapsed and the New Republic of the galaxy took over. Okay, so I thought they were storm troopers first. Are they clone? What is a clone trooper? Storm Clone Trooper? What's the difference? I don't know. I thought storms good for the white ones. I know there's Star Wars, the clone wars, but I don't know what the clones are. Okay, Difference Between Clone and Storm Trooper says. To understand the difference between storm troopers and clone troopers, you need to understand the difference between the Grand Army of the Republic and the armed forces of the empire. Okay, that's not important. Will just move on from that. Okay, wait, hold on, I have more questions. Is that okay? Yeah, okay, Um, so the one thing I don't get about this story, right, is the empire? Is? The Empire is a thing in for through six, right, Um, like with and Yoda's like Yoda, he's a fool Yoda then. So, like, where's is Baby Yoda? Something totally different, but like they seem to not have ever known of what a Yoda thing is. Um, well, I'm I got confused with like where this falls. I'm must there's another empire. Wait, we can. We can finish this once and for all by looking it up. Oh, the man Lauren is set after the return of the Jedi and before the force awakens. So it's like in between six and seven. Yeah, that doesn't make sense. I guess it does, because at the end of like at the end of the first star wars movies, the empire falls because, you know, Luke and all those people and the Jedis are like, yeah, we got this. No, I destroy the empire, and this is before the force awakens, which is a new series. No, I know, but like they already have Yoda. That's why I'm can I think is maybe it's another part of Yoda's speecies, like, but wouldn't they know? Like they know of Yoda, right or no, maybe not, because I thought Yoda was Luke's little secret. Keep you my dirty look. Okay, okay, if that's all right, fine, sure, that makes sense, because that that makes sense. Yeah, okay, okay. So, yes, so he's in the presence of this old, creepy man, a doctor and a bunch of storm troopers and they give him this little fob that is tracking something, his next target to take. They give the mandalorian money to bring this thing back alive, but if he kills it, he'll still get money, just not as much. And Yeah, so they only have his whereabouts. It's whereabouts. Actually, they don't know, like he they can't explain what it is. Okay, so then he, the Mandalorian, is walking through this little market. They're cooking little aliens, which is so it made me so sad um and the Mandalorian ends up at an armor and armory. Yeah, he sees his armor and they start saying words I don't understand, and then she makes him some special shoulder armor and then out of the money, yeah,...

...out of mount the money. And then we get a flashback of the Mandalorian as a child and his parents are protecting him from a city that's being bombed, and he explains that he is a foundling, but we don't know what that is yet. We find out towards the end. And then he goes looking for this mysterious person or thing in his space ship and he lands on this this one planet and he gets attacked by two dinosaur looking things, but they look like fish with legs. Yeah, it's weird. And then a man that looks like Danny Devito's character in the lauras saves him. I'm not gonna lie, I never really knew his name. I just call him the Lauras Dude. You don't find it out until like the last episode. It's so annoying. I don't know anyone's names in this yeah, so he wants worse than normal. Yeah, yeah, it's bad. And the people whose names I do know, like they're so hard to remember. And Yeah, so the Laurax Guy, he wants to help because everyone who has tried to find this mysterious thing has died in the process. And so he teaches the Mandalora and how to ride the dinosaur, the like monster dinosaur beings, and he meets this. So then he like finally goes on his mission, like to actually extract this mysterious thing, and he finds like where it is and he meets this bounty robot and they have to work together to defeat the bad guys that are guarding the thing. Listen, I love this robot. I would die for this robot. But they finally work together and they find this thing and they open up a little like car seat that it's in and it's baby fucking Yoda. Baby Yoda, I love baby Yoda. Oh, my note to just like baby baby doesn't understand baby sleepy him. I love him. Um. And so, yeah, the bounty robot wants to kill Baby Yoda for some reason, but the Mandalorian and him are just vibing. So the Mendeloran kills, the bounty bought, or so we think. Yeah, that's how it ends. Um, somebody. Like one thing. I have multiple things about this series. Um, like. So one thing is like how does every freaking planet have perfect gravity? I wrote that down too. What, like you can't just like walk on every planet? Yeah, every single planet you go to, and you can't just breathe there, like like maybe some people can, but why can everybody just breathe? Why can you all adapt to that? Yeah, and how do they all speak English to right? Something's not adding up there. Um. My other thing was that I feel like for some care characters and for some of like the people and like the aliens, they're just like, I don't I don't know. I just the prosthetics look so fake, like like they don't like look like they're part of the people. It's like clear that it's a prosthetic. Or like the aliens just like look like an old Disney animatronic. And I don't know, I wasn't convinced. Yeah, like, especially in the last couple...

...episodes, there's this girl with like purple like things and it just looks like they stuck stuck them on our head. And then they just like put a band over it to like be like, Oh, this is part of her mm. I don't know, I just like really like took away from the illusion, I guess, for me. Yeah, I also think that maybe this is just my taste, but a lot of the plot is muddled up in these annoying action scenes. Like I would just skip through the action seems not gonna lie because I just want to know the plot, like I want to figure out what happens. Like I don't know, I'm just not a big action fan. Yeah, I I guess like I feel like a lot of it was just kind of let me hop to this planet, let me hop to that one, and then I fix this problem and then I move on to the next one, I fix this prople you know, no one stays around long enough to develop. Yeah, everyone just like disappears. That's why there's just like no characters to talk about. Like the one place, like he thought while these I thought he would like develop as a character and we like meet more people. He like a meat, immediately leaves mm so and never comes back, like maybe he does in the second season. But it's just like yeah, I agree with you, I agree with everything you said. Well, pretty on the same page here. Yeah, we are confused AF. So I guess moving on to the second episode, now that we have baby ODA. I really wanted to see him drink soup because I knew that was going to happen. So the little baby carriage is just like floating behind the Mandalorian as he goes, which is so cute, and then these people start to attack him and he pushes baby out of the way and baby just watches and I put I wrote. Nobody puts baby in a corner. Lord like dirty dancing anyway, and he looks so scared with his little ears and he just like he likes his little baby hand. Do you know even little green hand? It's so cute. I love that little green hand end. But anyway, so, as he liked leaving this planet, or at least trying to, he gets back to a ship and it's just like scrapped, because these things that aren't explained what they are. I think their jawaws. They're called Jahwah. Well, they're like hooded figures which with no face and red eyes and they just like strip ships and that's what's called. It's called stripping. They just strip yeah, sorry. Um. So he's just like he has to go get all the parts from his ship. So he tries to get them and he can't remember all of my like every other note is just baby does this. He starts like chasing after the ship and baby ooda's zoom zooming along. Yeah, but he's baby's very confused because he doesn't know why he's just disintegrating them. He's like what are you doing? Um, yeah, but but here's the thing. Um, they like shock him with this electric stick and he falls and then baby gets really sad.

Why do you call him baby? Because it's too much to type baby Yoda every time. You could just say Yoda, but baby is baby baby. But anyway. So, basically, he meets up with this man from before that pair of looks like the guy from the Lorax, and baby tries to catch a frog during this scene and then he eats the frog. Lily, silly little green man. Just so are you doing? But okay, this is like the only episode where I have is so much. But Um, so the Lorax says that hills he's going to talk with these jawas and they say that they'll give him back his stuff if they get him this egg. So the egg is in this cave and there are beast lives in there and it's it looks like a rhino and it's really like destroying him in the warning, pretty much. But then they have for the beast. I did too. He just like kills him for no reason. But then baby puts his hand up and then the Rhino starts to float and like dies because the main lauren, stabs him because he can finally get up and then killed. Like the knife was so right. The knife is like maybe three inches long and he just like stabs it in his nose. Yeah, no, it wouldn't. There's no way that would kill him. But then baby's really tired and he goes to sleep. The egg is just like this hairy egg. Yeah, and then they like cut off the top and eat the egg. Yokes, disgusting. It's so weird. And then the lyrics won't take payment for helping him. They get all his stuff back and rebuild the ship and the larks won't take payment for it. Um. And then baby and and Mando go on a journey together and baby wakes up. Love that for him. Oh, also, John Favreau like wrote all of these episodes who plays happy and iron man, and I didn't realize just like how much he does. He's I love him like he's like he's directed and written like tons of things. He Um, he either directed or he did like the screenplay for LF or something. Yeah, he's done so much it's crazy. But yeah, that's he's a great dude. Okay, let's get into it. So, episode three, the Mandalorian is in his ship and he needs to return baby Yoda to the man from before, the creepy old man, and he returns baby Yoda to the creepy dude and gets his reward, some shiny armor, that designer armor about Um, and he goes back to that armor lady and these dudes try to fight him for being a Mandalorian who works for the imperial people. They're also mandalorians and so they hate this sort of lifestyle because, as we find out later, the empire kind of destroyed their lives. Yeah, and so, Um, oh, I wrote. He has never removed his helmet. How does he shower? But later, every time I know that he's allowed to do it when no one's around, no one living, and also the MANDALORIAN's catchphrases. This is the way, a way is capitalized for some reason. So, yeah, the Mandala. Yeah, I have my subtitles on. So did I? I just solve it. The mandalorian now has his armor. He looks like a gee Um and ever, it is really jealous. Why did I write? I liked him better when he...

...was poor. What did I write? That? Um. So then he meets up with grief cargo and they get lunch, cute little date, and he wants another assignment. But he asked what they did with baby Yoda because, you know, he started feeling some things for this poor child. And he's like, you can't ask questions. That's a against the lollipop guilds guy, and so he's like haw rude and then leaves. And then he's walking around the town and he sees that someone throughout baby Yoda's car seat and I was really sad. And so he decides to go on a stake out and he overhears that they're going to kill baby Yoda after extracting something from him, and so he sneaks into their lair and attacks some storm troopers and this doctor who's supposed to be the one operating on Baby Yoda, and he saves baby Yoda and is successful in that. But now all the other bounty hunters bobs are going off again because creep cargo and like the imperial people, hired a bunch of other people for this job, and so they're all turned back on and then everyone points are guns at him and baby Yoda and grief cargo wants to make a trade for him. But then the Mandaloran fights back and gets away because the other mandalorians in town that fought him before we're like, I see you, and then saved him. And then grief cargo gets shot. I wrote Grief Cargi gets shot, but he lives and is not happy. And at this point I would just like to list three things that I would personally do for baby Yoda. Okay, one, I would die for baby Yoda. Obvious too. I would get kidnapped by Matthew Morrison and be subjected to him performing the Thong Song to me every day, just for baby Yoda to Lu and three, I would eat a whole jar of olives for baby Yoda. Thank you. I don't like I was either. They're disgusting. They're so weird. I know. That's how much I love baby Yoda. What would you do for Baby Yoda? Um, I would watch this show again. Um, that's it. That's your big sacrifice. That's a big sacrifice. Yeah, I like, I didn't like it. Like I like I'd liked it for baby Yoda. Yeah, so I'd watch it for Baby Yoda. It's honestly what I expected. You know, I expected so much more really, but just me that like, I don't know, I I thought people like really really liked it, even like Non Star Wars fans, and then I was, it's really disappointed, but it's fine. So sorry, yeah, it's fine. Um, I'm so happy I get episode for different. Really, this is fun. Baby gets some soup. That's why I that's why I did the first one, because I knew you wanted for to talk about so episode four, we're yet again on another planet and we see this village and they're just like fishing and stuff, but then they're attacked by some creature and they like steal everything and destroy the the village. But...

...meanwhile on the ship, baby keeps touching things and making noises go off in the ship and they land on the new planet and manner says, I'm going to explore alone but baby comes along and walks with a little wattle and it's really here with those tiny legs. I know he's like running all the time. So they like end up in this bar sort of thing, and he sits baby down in the bar and then he follows the footprints of this girl that he saw and then they fight each other. But babies just drinking some soup and watching it. I'll go down and I don't know this girl's name to get the meme right. Yeah, yeah, my chalky milk. Yeah, I have no idea what this girl's name is. Do you Kara Dune? All Right, oh, Kara Kara. So basically she says that mandot has to lead because this is her planet and like she's like here to say and like for peace or whatever. And as he goes to leave, these these men come up to him and ask him to take on this job that they have for him because they need it's the men from the village and they tell him like they they have lodging. So he goes with them. So at that night, as they're driving or like on a horse, and there's no heart, I don't know what it is. They're just like on the back of a carriage thing and baby watches the stars. It's really cute. And they arrive in this village and there's this widowed woman and she tries to gem to take his helmet off. He's like no, I can't take it off in front of people. I refuse to take my helmet off before marriage. Oh yeah, and so basically we find out that these people have a giant droid thing that they can't defeat on their own, like the girl or Cara and Manda. They can't defeated on their own. So they teach all the people how to fight and they set up this trap for this giant droid and then it's very clear that Mando has a crush on this this widow. She's a crush on him. And so during this attack it's not like anything special, except this droids is supposed to like step into this trap, but he keeps stopping right before the trap. But eventually they win and the fight is over. And later on baby's hunting frogs again and puts them in his mouth then spits them out and there are bounding hunters tracking them. So that means that they have to leave, because that would like put the village at risk. So he puts his feeling to side and then they leave sad. Yeah, but I'm the rule of the helmet thing is that like you can take it off in front of someone, but if you do, you can never put it back on again and you're kicked out of the mandalorians. Yeah, like you. If you had a choice between dying and taking that helmet off, like most mandalorians, would use death. Yeah, because it's the way, even if you get really sweaty under it. Yeah, I don't know how they like. It just looks like metal, like no, like see through Mesh to like even see where you're going. Yeah, UH, okay. Episode Five. So the Mandalorian and baby Yoda are just chilling on...

...his spaceship and he's getting attacked by some random old guy, but then the Mandaloran blows the old guy and his tiny little ship up, but there ship is damaged and they have no fuel, so they decide to go to a random planet to repair ship, and he pays some random woman to do it and goes to look around. Then he leaves baby Yoda on the ship with this randingdow and how you're responsible, father of the year. So Baby Yoda evidently comes out of the ship and the woman has to babysit him. Bad parenting. Meanwhile, the Mandalorian is looking for some work. So he finds a guy named torn who I thought it was Toro. Oh, it's probably Toro. So yeah, he finds a guy named Toro who found he's a bounty hunter. He's just starting off and he found someone for the Mandaloran to hunt with him and he needs to find this woman to get into the bounty hunting guild, and the Mandalorian says yes because he's like, okay, I know that you're a beginner, but I just want to help you. So they have to cross the desert and they make a plan to attack this woman at night and it actually works and they capture her, but she tries to convince him to turn on the Mandalorian to improve his reputation with the guild. It works too, but he ends up killing her anyway. But Toro. And then the Mandalorian goes back to the ship repair shop after finding this woman's dead body, or so we think is dead, and he he finds Toro with baby Yoda and his babysitter holding them hostage. I was like, Oh, I'mge don't shoot baby Yoda. I wrote that in my note Um and then I wrote, okay, everything is fine. So the Mandalorian obviously, like you know, he can handle some random guy named Toro, I mean, come on, and he leaves with our sun, you know, our sun, baby Yoda, and then we see someone at the end, like we see someone approaching the woman's body. That nothing ever came of that, right, right, yeah, I don't know why they did that. Maybe it's to set something up in season two, but that doesn't make any sense. Like they didn't even know they were going to give a second season at this point. And just like I think they like assumed. But I who's going to remember that? US, we remembered it, but we're not watching the second season, at least I'm not true. So that's all I had. But again, they can easily walk and breathe on this planet and I hate it. I know it. Just like, okay, we can have monsters, right, we can have spaceships, we can have hyper speed, but I don't understand how every every planet in this galaxy has the same gravity. It does not make sense if they are. They're all different size planets with different size suns, different moons, like its just like doesn't make sense. Yeah, it just like I get like if someone's like suspend your disbelief, but like there's like science behind space. So moving on episode six, they're well, he's landing on this new ship that's just like floating the mineral space for a new job. This guy says he needs a fifth person, basically just for a ride, because they need a ship that can't be detected...

...by for public ships or imperial ships, and for some reason the MANDALORIAN's is special. So there's this one girl on the so there's for other people, one like general human, one help boy looking guy, this purple girl and a droid. So basically the job is getting this prisoner off of a ship and they like fly at the ship, which is only manned by Droids, which is why they can do it. At least they think it's all made by droids. So when they're on the ship they just like kind of attack all joys and kill them. But there is one person on the ship and they the normal person just like shoots him. But he had a tracker in his hand that like alerts all the ships that this prison is being attacked. So the tracker got activated and but they're going to find a prisoner. And when they finally find him, it's this girl's brother. And as they get him out of the cell, all four of the other people like trap Mando in the in his cell, but eventually he escapes and at the same time the droid realizes that baby otors on the ship and like starts looking for him, because the droid stay back because he can do all the techy stuff. But as they're all making their way back to the ship without Manno, he escapes the cell and basically just traps them and kills them all, or like that. He doesn't actually kill them. We find that out at the end, but he just like knocks them all out and puts them in a jail cell. And on the ship the droid tries to kill the baby, but right about, right as he's about to do it, Mando kills the droid. And then they returned back to the ship where this man hired them and he gets paid. But as they're the only person left alive is the is the prisoner that they had a gotten, or so we think. Yeah, so you think. But as the so then he just turns and leaves after he gets paid but as he leaves, we see that Mando put the tracker on the prisoner and they destroy and the the people that were coming to check on the prison ship like fault tracker. So they destroy the ship that the prisoner was on and everyone on it. Yep, yeah, again, on this ship there were no like doors that close or anything. This was all out open to space and they were all just walking around, not freezing, like as soon as you're exposed to space you freeze within a matter of seconds. Yep, I'd like, I don't get it, like at least put a door, put a shield something. We're space suit. Yeah, I don't get it. It doesn't make sense to me. We will just have to look past it. It's a it's an unfortunate error and it makes me mad. Yeah, did you have any comments about this? No, I this was the one where I really had a problem with the prosthetics and I just like kind of I just like didn't care, like I just like all the characters. They're just like really one dimensional and it's just like here I am, now I'm dead. Yeah, and they just like suck his characters like anyway. MMM, no, I get that. It's just like no one stays long enough to, like, I said this before, but no one stays long enough to like have some sort of character development. Yeah, yeah, okay, episode seven. So meant the men. Lauren's back in...

...his ship with baby Yoda and he sees that Grief Car Gu sent him a Hologram asking to take out this creepy dude, the same creepy dude from before who wanted baby Yoda, and he wants Mendalorian to bring Baby Yoda to Navarro, which is the planet from the first part, like from the first episode, is in the Varrow, the name of the cheerleading documentary, like the that team. I don't know, I never watched that. Okay, never run UM. Yeah, so he wants grief cargo, wants the Mentaloran to bring baby Yoda back to Navarrow as bait and initiate some sort of fake transaction to track the guy and his army because they're just destroying this town that he was, that he's been living in, and it'll clear his name in the guild and he won't have to live in exile anymore and no one will care. Hi, wrote. I'm scared that it's not going to work. I was right. So the MANDALORIAN enlist the help of Karadun again and the Laurax guy and the robot he killed in the first episode. He was rebuilt to be a nanny robot. I love him. He's great. He provides some good comic relief to this. Yeah, Um, so Kara and the MANDALORIAN are randomly arm wrestling one night while they're preparing for this and Um Yoda starts choking Kara force like. It's just yeah, I didn't know he was into that, but okay. So then they go to Navarro and meet up with grief cargo. It's Kara, the guy from the Laura's, the Mandalorian, Yoda, grief cargo and then some of his goons and he finds out that the town he lived in is now overrun by the ex empire people and they're having a nice little campfire sing along until they get attacked and grief cargo gets injured with poison by Taro deactoes. Yeah, I like I was like, what are you doing? It was a bit bizarre, but you know, I guess we're in Jurassic Park now. It was so weird. Yeah, so the only one who can save grief cargo is baby Yoda and his magic force, and so baby Yoda sucks the poison out of him with his force. It's kind of weird, like what's his is tiny little hand, green hand, but he's doing he's like what we're doing. But the next day they make it to the town and fright is they're about to enter the outskirts of the town. It's essentially a setup, really, but Um GROEF cargo like kind of goes against the setup to attack like the Mandalorian and just take baby Yoda, and he kills his own men instead, and he explains that the plan all along was to kill them and take the baby, but he couldn't go through with it because Yoda saved his life. And so this is when we see like a shift in his character. This is really the only character that has development grief cargo. He goes from being like an kind of guy to a kind of guy. And so they hatch a new plan. The plan is to pretend like they have the mandalorian captive with baby Yoda and take them as hostages, but baby Yoda will actually be safe with the lorax Guy. Oh, whose name is Quel, yeah, quil, but I don't understand about this plan. Is that? Why wouldn't they wait for baby...

Yoda to at least get like almost all the way there before deciding to enter town, because he's completely exposed it? You know? How come I thought of this but the warrior couldn't? I don't know. Um. So, yeah, spoiler alert. Baby Yoda is not safe. They go and meet up with the creepy imperial dude and realize that their way out numbered. There are storm troopers everywhere. This town is just filled with them, and so there's like some sort of weird standoff and then they shoot all the storm troopers. Then whole army comes and they use this walkie talkie that everyone can hear, and so they find out that baby Yoda is actually not there with them and that he's he's with the lauraks Guy Riding his dinosaur, and so they go after him. Things are not looking good at this point. This showed just a fever dream. Things are not looking good for baby Yoda and unfortunately the lauraks guy ends up getting shot by the storm troopers, who are faster than his dinosaur, and Baby Yoda get snatched up in a sackends. Oh my God. Yeah, I just like don't like reading that out loud right, it sounds like I was on drugs when I wrote down my notes, but I was not like who came up with this? Johnny row ma'am, you have to take it up with him. I was praising you a minute ago. I mean, I just think that if we had like been avid star wars fans and like we knew a little bit about like each planet and like the different creatures that lie on them, I think that we would definitely not be as like caught off guard at some of the insanity that occurs. But I feel like like not like, yeah, some of has to do the creatures, but like a lot of it just like the plot, like quels riding on his baby dynasts, these store troopers Killman, put the baby in a sack. Yeah, I think. Yeah, I think we're also just used to like you and I are into these like hyperrealistic shows that emulate real life, and this is just the complete opposite. It's like a fantasy escape sort of situation. Yeah, I guess, like, yeah, but I like movies like that. Like, you know what, maybe I'm just like a star Trek Fan over Star Wars. You sound like my dad. I feel like my mom my. Gosh, our parents should have a star trek marathon. But, like I love the the New Star Trek movies. I think they're so good, like good Chris Pine. Really, I don't watch them. I don't know. I'm not into like fantasy movies like that. Like, I don't know. I love fantasy books. I think fantasy movies are really cool. I just I don't think I can go into fantasy shows. But yeah, final episode. So basically, these men that kidnapped the baby. They this part. Okay, this part it makes sense to me either. They like called in about having the baby and they're like no, just hold on, like don't bring it in, which I don't get, because they had already confirmed that they didn't have it. I think who ever wrote the screenplay I was just trying to find an easy way out to explain why they why they didn't go immediately. Okay, but anyway, so...

...they have the baby in the bag and they keep punching it like so rude and they always are brubby little hands on my son ever again, I will kill you. Um. They also like make a joke at how store roopers can't shoot anything, like while they're waiting there's like a metal dish in the desert and they try and shoot it and they miss. Ha, but I didn't think that was funny. Now it was dumb. It was just like randomly put in there. Like if if they had like found a way to like incorporate it, like maybe, but it was just like kind of ridiculous. But anyway, then nanny droid shows up and is like give me the child and because this in his protocol take care of the Child, he kills the storm troopers and takes the baby. We have no choice but to stand. Yeah. So wow. So the the main guys are being attacked back at the building where they pretended to have the baby and the droid comes in and like shoots at everyone and comes in and joins them pretty much. And so they're trying to escape into the sewers, back to where like the mandalorians kind of live, and Mando like gets sort of blown up in the and this fire that starts, but then he's fine because the droid says that since I'm not like everyone else leaves. But the droid says that I can save you because I'm not a human, I'm not living, so I can take off her helmet and take care of view. So that's how they kind of get around it, and he just like sprays and a bacterial sprite and he's fine. I was really disappointed by in a scene as the fact that, unfortunately, the Mandaloran is not as hot as I thought he'd be. Yeah, he's not. He's not sexy. No, he's like actually he is in people's sexy is if the year or whatever. They're like men of two thousand and twenty or whatever, but so is Dr Fowlchi. So like whatever. They're also the same people that named, what's it? Blake Sheldon? Is that his name? I think it's Shelton, like, like Shelton is hottest man of the year. Yeah, the only we don't the only reason why they're credible this year is because they pick Michael B Jordan. So I support it. Harry is also on the first page after Michael Jordan or Michael B Jordan. Yeah, so, like that's okay. Yeah, but anyway. So back to the back to the show. All I have to stay on that is that I understand why the mandalorian where as a helmet, oh my God. Okay, moving on. So they're going into the tunnels broke. I must have like missed types because I wrote that they go into try and find the other mangoes. Hum. So, so they're on the lookout for some orange fruit. But basically, like as they're in the tunnels, there's a pile of all their helmets. So all the other Mandlurans are dead except for this blacksmith armor, or so we think. We think. Yeah, we think that they're all dead. And she says to them that they need to reunite baby Yoda with its own kind, and she's like your its father until it's old enough or it's back with this stone kind. So he gets a signet, like each mandlurian has their own signet, and I don't really know what his is. It's like something to do with a pair of something like him and baby out our pair you have. They have a clan...

...of two. Yeah, but basically what they need to do to escape is the blacksmith stays behind to fight the storm troopers and then they need to float down the lava river, which is just um shark boy and lava girl. That's kind of yours little Fez. Yeah, but basically, as they're floating down the river, the storm troopers kind of have the entrance to this river. They're like standing there with guns ready to shoot them as soon as they can see them, but the nanny droid, says, I will protect you because I need to protect the baby, and I will self destruct to protect you. So he does my can. Basically, they escape and then baby hugs Mando's leg and it's really cute, and they go to leave. Ka Kera stays behind. The droid is dead, whatever his name is, Greek grief, grief cargo. He dies, right, Yah, Oh, oh, right, right, okay, some a position. Yeah, grief cargo lives, and he's like now that this place is safe and going to make something out of it again or whatever. So Mindo and the baby leave to go find his own other people and they make a tomb for the Lorax and we find out that Gideon, the man who started this or like brought in all the soldiers, has survived and has a lightsaber or like a light sword. It doesn't look like a Lightsaber, it looks like a sword. And that's the end. Wow, what a ride we went on. Yeah, did you wash them all on one day or did you space it out? I space it out. I did five on one day and then three another day. Oh my God. Yeah, I mean I, as I said earlier, I just like was disappointed. I don't know, hmm. I mean, what did you expect with, first of all, a Disney show that's like catered towards younger people? Second of all, Star Wars like this is to be expected. Yeah, I don't know, like I love some like Disney things that are catered towards younger people. I don't even know if this is technically should be catered to younger people. Like are they making just for Die Hard Star Wars fans? You know, I don't think so. I don't know. I don't know anything about Star Wars. Disney is so greedy that, no matter what, they try to make this for everyone. Yeah, yeah, I got that. So, no matter like who actually ended up watching it, I have a feeling that the goal was always a wide audience. Hmm Um. Yeah, I don't know. This is just what I expected. Like I expected more P P pew over, like actual plot development, character development. Yeah, you know, like anything deeper than surface level. It was very surface level show, and I guess that's like some People's cup of tea, because, you know, you don't have to really delve deep and analyze the show, like think about like compare this to normal people what we just watch. Like it's a tough show to watch and just like sit back and enjoy and just wash from the sidelines. Like the Manalauran. You could just like snap a finger and you're immersed into this world and you don't have to think about anything difficult. You don't. It just...

...your brain can take a second to chill out. Yeah, I guess this is like a show that you can put on while you're doing something else and it's okay if you miss it, because the episode are basically the same. Yeah, it's like a good escape. Yeah, but we did it for baby Yoda. Honestly, this the only thing that makes the show okay. Yeah, oh well, two thousand and twenty is almost over. That that it's true. The note that we can end on. This is the second till the last episode you'll have us for in two thousand and twenty. We started in two thousand and twenty. Is Our second last episode over two thousand and twenty. It's like crazy to think that. In I told I I brought this idea up to you in March. I think like end of March, like if doing a podcast. Oh Yeah, because you talked about Potter lists. Yeah, or yeah. So if anybody like wants to know, I came up with this idea because I didn't know what to do now that I was like stuck at home, so all I did was listen to Potter list. It's an amazing podcast, but I just like got the idea to make our podcast and I was like, Lauren, like let's do this, and we did it. Yeah, we actually followed through with something. We have come up with so many ideas in the length of our friendship that we like start and then never go anywhere, with so many business ventures that never get completed. Yeah, and I'm so proud of us, like, even though we take every week go we're almost at twenty four episodes, which is so good for us, and we're are going to get ahead for season three in the New Year and three and we're gonna go back to movies. So if you have any movies that you think we have to see, please let us know and also feel free to recommend movies that maybe like old or new. Like we do cover a lot of trending shows and movies, but we also cover like iconic ones that we've never seen before, like rocky, the Godfather. You know, those are also a lot of fun to analyze. Yeah, I think we got like a ton of listens just from rocky. I feel like there we have seen like a lot of classic like s movie, so that was like like cut out a whole genre for us. But there are so many like classic movies haven't seen. So if there's one that you really love that you're like like, have you never seen this before? Ye, please let us know what it is and we will watch it. Definitely. It's the name of the game, name of the show. Oh, point of the shows, because we've seen like nothing and we're just going through this together. Yeah, because we can't see to but um, but okay, that was a great way to end this Um.
