The Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 8)

Written by , Posted in Blog

What an episode! Join Ian for a recap of what she referred to as a the best chapter of Star Wars since The Empire Strikes Back. Such a beautiful tribute to everything fans love about this franchise. If only R5-D4 had come along for the adventure from Tatooine.

Programming note: we will return after Christmas with a full review of season two. Happy Life Day everyone!

The Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 7)

Written by , Posted in Blog

Why does Mando wear a mustache? Join Ian as she spends most of the episode pondering the show’s existential questions (mostly kidding!), like why Boba Fett spent much of Chapter 15 hiding. Mayfeld returns, bringing American interventionism into the equation, territory that Star Wars hasn’t quite presented as something its audience should worry about with regard to the New Republic. 

No Grogu this week, but never fear. A sighting of Pedro Pescal’s beautiful face can go a long way toward forgetting about that adorable little fella.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 6)

Written by , Posted in Blog

Grab your jetpack and your Sarlacc pit, Boba Fett is back! The long-awaited return of everyone’s favorite tertiary bounty hunter lived up to the hype. Temuera Morrison was absolutely superb.

Ian provides some context for Boba Fett’s popularity, including his debut in the beloved Star Wars Holiday Special. Mando might not be very good at watching his son, but at least Grogu has darksaber to keep himself occupied.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 5)

Written by , Posted in Blog

100th episode of Estradiol Illusions! We dive into what Ian thought was the best episode of The Mandalorian ever, steeped in Star Wars’ lore. Ahsoka Tano’s live-action debut was flawless. Baby Yoda’s name reveal, not so much. Do we have to call him Grogu? Ian doesn’t want to. 

Thank you everyone for following us these for 100 episodes. Here’s to another hundred!

The Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 4)

Written by , Posted in Blog

Episode four takes us back to Nevarro, the pile of rocks not named Tatooine or Jakku. While Baby Yoda munches on space macarons, Mando, Greef, and Cara Dune seek to blow up the Imperial Remnant’s lava base. Prequel fan favorite midichlorians return, evoking nostalgia for Jar Jar Binks.

Join ITM as she breaks down an uneven episode that pulled itself together right as the action started. Halfway through the season already! Time flies when you’re using the force to steal cookies.

Mandalorian Season 2 Recap (Episode 2)

Written by , Posted in Blog

Chapter 10, “The Passengers” was a bit of a mixed bag. The stellar action sequences were hindered by some pretty abysmal plotting and narrative choices. 

Are we supposed to care that Baby Yoda is casually eating the last of Frog Lady’s eggs? Join host ITM as she breaks down this peculiar episode.
