Well of course it had to be a different robot that looks damn near identical, so you can sell a different action figure.

That seems reasonable for all the shit they're gonna be churning out

Or for $13/mo you can get ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+

ESPN+ looks to be useless unless you want to watch soccer/ufc/golf.

I wouldnít sub to ESPN+ for it, but every 30 for 30 (documentary series) Iíve seen has been pretty good, even when I didnít necessarily care beforehand about the subject of the episode.

Saw an article yesterday stating that Netflix basically gives zero fucks about holding big movie licenses anyway.  

They say that but their best "original content" has come from licensing the Marvel IP.  That said I think they are one of the more self aware companies out there, they realized almost from the beginning that once their contracts for content ran out the only thing they would have left of value was their subscriber base, the question now is are they going to be able to develop premium content quickly enough to hold on to that base.

They do seem to be doing a good job of rotating major movies through as well.  Turned it on for the first time in a few months and was impressed at some of the movie options available.

Anyways, theyíve been pumping out a lot of original content for the last few years.  Far more than any of the competitors.

Before coghing up for Disney plus, check to see if you have an outlet to get it for free.  For example, if you have unlimited data from verizon, they're giving you a year for free.

I am wondering where it is going to show up in Eurolandia, because I don't think Disney streaming is even a thing.  A quick google search has me thinking that this will have to be obtained and consumed via alternative, sub-legal methods.

In large parts of Europe, Disney have a long term contract in place for first runs with Sky-now-Comcast.

Disney+ won't arrive till that is dead. They are promising 2020, but who knows.

So the first episode is good. Feels like they are working some of the more entertaining story beats of Rogue One and Solo (specifically droid who is funny in a deadpan way) but overall more worth watching than Last Jedi.

Here in Italy Disney+ will launch on March 31st. Not so patiently waiting.

There is a lot of "Hey, here's some stuff you know from Star Wars!" in it - but that is true of all the Dave Filoni Star Wars stuff.  And it all works.  

I get the idea of him being a loner, but I wish there were more of a regular cast of characters on the show.  It looks like he'll be the only real mainstay in the series...  I know there are folks cast for multiple episodes, but it really has the feel of a one character centric show.

Pretty classic template for a Western-derived show--think of all the classic TV Western shows that were basically a loner going from town to town.

All I can say is that based on the rate of jawa murder, I cannot wait for him to have a mission on the forest moon of Endor.

I really like the mix of "he's a badass" and "he's making it fuck up as he goes". That is 100% Man With No Name territory, so good that Favreau understands the template.

The 2nd episode was fucking hilarious. I was constantly giggling, all in a good way. I cannot believe the same producers that brought us Last Jedi managed to bring us something that's this good.

I'm not a fan of Mandalorians. I think they have cool armor but most Mandalorians not named Sabine have been complete tools in Star Wars and their more extreme fans are obnoxious. Like...talking in Mandalorian online obnoxious.

That said, this show is damned good. It really is the Man with no Name in Star Wars and I like it. I like that he can sometimes be a total bad ass and sometimes get his ass handed to him and get his armor damaged. Sometimes in the same fight.

IGN compared it to (spoilered just in case)  and I think they may be right on, especially as George Lucas was influenced by Kurosawa when he made the original movie.

Thatís because itís not the same team ó this is Jon Favreauís baby. He is the creator and showrunner. Yes Kathleen Kennedy is an Executive Producer (as is Favreau) but sheís an Executive Producer on anything Lucasfilm movie Star Wars live-action related.

That's kind of my point though. Kennedy apparently looked at shit like Last Jedi and thought "Yeah, that's fine, let's continue a billion dollar franchise with this" so her judgement is clearly questionable as hell. So I'm not sure how something that's this level of quality got through her moron filter.

It might not have been her decision. E.g. it could've been Bob Iger telling her "we want Jon Favreau to do one of our live-action Star Wars streaming shows -- make it happen".
