# Finally got round to watching the first series of The Mandalorian - I had been getting stick from a colleague for not having seen it, being the biggest geek on the team. (Who are you and what have you done with Colin?)

I had heard very good things so felt a bit disappointed after the first two episodes; it didn't seem to be as good as everyone was making out. I was too quick to judge. Episode 3 and on the story really takes off and becomes hugely enjoyable. I just wish the episodes were longer as I could watch so much more of this and still feel it wasn't enough.

The production values are immense and it's just like watching a movie. The way the backgrounds are generated with Unreal Engine and displayed on a full 360 degree screen (no green screen here) makes it all the more immersive and believable, not to mention being absolutely fantastic.

      We've watched a few other films but certainly, for me, the Star Wars universe will be all I really watch. I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to or dreading the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor. If it's like the prequel films then ergh but if it's anything like Mando then bring it on!
  1. I didn't know about the Obi Wan Kenobi series. I guess I'm not much of a real Star Wars geek. πŸ€ͺ

    The Mandalorian has been excellent. Just what the Star Wars franchise needs.
