Well, I’ve gotta say that I loved this weeks episode! It moved the story along, gave us a ton of exposition and we got to see a bit of lightsaber action.

I grew up with the original movies and have been endlessly disappointed by the prequels and sequels, this show feels like exactly the shot in the arm the Star Wars universe needed.

Tell you what, though. Kyle Reese got old. So very old. That shocked me.

Havent caught up with it yet, but glad to hear it moved the story along - was starting to get a bit tedious with the Mandalorian as each episode was:

- walks in with 'kid'
- asks for the way
- help us on this mission and we will tell you
- helps on mission (leaving 'kid' with complete stranger)
- they tell him the way
- off he goes (with 'kid')...

I'm trypically way behind, still on S01E06. I am enjoying it though, it's very cleverly done, very nostalgic feel to the lack of dialogue and action, almost cyberpunk/western in sub genre.

Well... that does still happen in the episode but it fleshes out the story considerably. I’m not a huge Star Wars nerd so some bits may have been wasted on me.

As you and @SpyderTracks haven’t yet watched it I’m glad my first post was spoiler free. Phew!

...and don't forget the uproar about fanatics claiming the 'kid' is committing genocide in one episode :ROFLMAO:

At least now we know he's got a name - and responds to it with a cute 'meep'.

Thank you!!!! All through the episode I was thinking "he looks familiar but I cannot place him"...I gave up in the end. To be fair Michael Biehn started getting old 20 years ago :ROFLMAO:

Terminator and The Abyss were the only 2 films of his I liked that that was nothing to do with his acting... never rated him much.

Yeah was never the best actor...as evidenced by his list of credits on IMDB. I liked The Rock as well, though it's easy to forget he is even in it!
Ha... as I had just done... that's a great film, but completely forgot he was in it and even now you mention it, can't picture his character!

Oh my..I just saw a picture of Lance Henriksen...now there is someone who is looking old now!! Although no real surprise given he is now 80 :eek:
That man is an absolute legend!

He was in a lesser known series in the late 90's called "Millenium".... absolutely loved it, would highly recommend if you're a fan, only ran for 3 seasons, but well worth a look.

I really enjoyed Millenium...especially as it was a spin-off from one of the all-time greatest TV series ever: The X-Files :love:

OMG< I didn't realise that, that makes it even better!

Well, I say it was a spin-off...it was more they were created by the same person and set in the same fictional world. There was a crossover of during season 7 of the X-Files which served as closure for Millenium given it didn't end properly
