The second season of The Mandalorian: reviews

The second season of The Mandalorian has been covered by the Seeker G, who wrote his personal impressions on the individual episodes and two insights into the controversy that arose around the series. The "reviews" are divided into five parts: incipit, plot of the episode, positives, negatives, conclusions. Let's see them in brief.

NB: there will be SPOILER throughout the second season!

The Sheriff - Episode 1: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

In this review we talk, in generally very positive tones, of the first, spectacular episode of the second season of The Mandalorian, in which Din Djarin faces a Krayt dragon.

Seeker G particularly liked theattention for daily life of the common people of the Galaxy and the small details of the setting. She also really liked the humanizing approach with which the Tusken. Finally, he hopes for a greater involvement of the child in the plot.

The Passenger - Episode 2: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

This review retraces the journey of Din and the child with the Frog woman, their (too) close encounter with the creeps i Kryknas spiders and the child's greed for the Frog woman's eggs.

Seeker G enjoyed the story of the Frog woman, although he feels his design and breed name are quite lazy. She found the child's unintentional dangerousness very interesting, who is a powerful person in the Force but without a clear moral compass due to his age. He did not appreciate, however, that this episode was almost a chance encounter in a D&D campaign.

The Heir - Episode 3: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

This review is about Din's arrival on the water planet Trask and his encounter with Bo-Katan Kryze and other Mandalorians who follow a Creed different from his.

According to Seeker G, this installment has as positive elements the cure for Mandalorian culture. However, the downsides are manifold: Din's too sudden change of mind about Bo-Katan and the fact that Bo-Katan was presented as too young.

The Siege - Episode 4: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

This review is about Din and the Child's break on Nevarro, and infiltrating the imperial base with Cara Dune and Greef Karga.

Seeker G loved that this episode took place as an RPG session. Also, he found it interesting how the series is pitching itself as bridge not only between the original trilogy and the sequels, but also between the prequels and the sequels, thanks to midichlorian. He has nothing bad to say about the episode.

The Jedi - Episode 5: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

In this episode we see, finally in live action, Ahsoka Tano, finally found by Din on the planet Corvus. Ahsoka reveals the child's name, namely Grogu, and, defeating Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth, gives Din a spear of beskar. However, Ahsoka cannot train Grogu.

Seeker G really enjoyed introducing and writing Ahsoka, as well as the general atmosphere of Corvus and Ahsoka's doubts about Grogu's training. However, he has doubts about how many easter egg characters can appear in this series, before distorting it.

The tragedy - Episode 6: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

This review is about how Din and Grogu get on Tython to activate the seer stone, but being joined by many unexpected guests. The first are Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, looking for the bounty hunter's armor. The latter are Moff Gideon's Imperials, who kidnap Grogu.

Seeker G has nothing bad to say about this episode. Boba Fett she loved it, she loved the destruction of Razor Crest and, in general, she loves this cast of actors over forty very much.

The Avenger - Episode 7: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

In this episode we follow Din Djarin as he tries to retrieve information on the whereabouts of Grogu and Moff Gideon, aided by Cara, Boba, Fennec and an unenthusiastic Migs Mayfeld.

Seeker G here especially appreciated the great performances of Pedro Pascal and Bill Burr, as well as the way the episode makes us identify and de-identify with the Imperials. It has nothing bad to say.

The rescue - Episode 8: Review of the second season of The Mandalorian

In the last episode of the second season, we see Din, Cara, Boba, Fennec, Bo-Katan and Koska join forces to save Grogu from Moff Gideon, facing the fearsome Dark Troopers and being able to count on unexpected help.

Again, the G-Seeker has very little negative to say. She really enjoyed the episode and closes the narrative arc of Grogu very well, however, opening up interesting questions to explore next season.

Gina Carano, between body-shaming, conspiracy and transphobia: let's be clear

In this article, Seeker G delves into the motivations behind the controversy that recently invested the actress Gina Carano, who plays Cara Dune.

He will first speak of the body-shaming suffered by the actress, pointing out how incorrect and toxic it is. The article will then focus on Carano's positions that have been talked about Transphobia, starting with his ironic use of inserting pronouns in the Twitter bio. Finally, his utterances will be deepened anti-mask e conspiracy theorists, linked to the alt-right movements that support Trump and define the recent American elections invalid or rigged.

Boba Fett and body-shaming: are we done enough?

The last article related to this television series written by Seeker G is about the body-shaming suffered by Temuera Morrison, interpreter of Boba Fett.

The severity of this form of bullying is also due to the fact that body-shaming was not only done on Twitter by private users, but also on information sites who talked about the episode. The article reports several examples, both from Twitter and news sites. It then closes on a positive note, also presenting examples of the outcry that other fans have done to defend the actor and the character from these absurd accusations.
