  • Disney launched their new Disney+ streaming service the other day and with it some original shows not available elsewhere. Unfortunately, for those of us in the UK, Disney+ will not be launching until next year, so if you want to watch this show, you will need to find it via other means.


    Having seen the first ep, I like this! Disney has spent the house on this series and it is full blown Star Wars complete with spaceships and droids a plenty, but much more serious in tone and is set during the era of the original three films.


    As for the story, the main character is a bounty hunter who is part of a order of bounty hunters called the Mandalorians and he is sent on missions to get his bounties. We get to see where the mandalorians are based and also get a bit of back story on the main character, as to why he became a mandalorian in the first place. The episode ends with a intriguing dilema for the mandalorian, I'll say no more than that.


    If you like Star Wars, I think you'll like this.

  • Peoples' reviews are very encouraging and I'm a great fan of Star Wars. I see the first two episodes are available in 1080p from the usual place. I'll get them down and take a look.

  • Tried playing the first episode last night but there's a problem with the sound on the TV. Says unsupported content. AC3 codec in .mkv which normally plays fine. I'll have to re-code it with another codec like AAC.


    [edit] Because the files are under 4gigs I'll put them on the lappy and use its HDMI output to view them, save mucking about.

  • You keep having this issue with playing files Heero. Perhaps get a fire tv stick in the sales, they're going cheap at the moment and the latest 4k version is best with the faster chip.

    It's only a few files that have a problem.


    Anyhow I put the first episode onto a memory stick and we watched it using the laptop feeding the TV. The setup works well as the laptop output is full 1080p on HDMI.


    Really like this, top notch effects and the story is absorbing. I have episode 2 ready to watch as well. We'll have to see how the story develops.

  • Yep, they've spent the money on this series. There's a interview on the internet with the creator of the series along with Disey#s boss and they explained that they created a brand new virtual reality studio to film this series, which has never been done before. I think they've done a good job.

  • Just watched episode 3: Gripping stuff. I won't give anything away but a really amusing bit at the end where the mandalorian is making his escape in his space ship and one of the guild appears next to him in some kind of flying suit and salutes him.


    His comment: " I've got to get me one of those" ^^

    Still we'll see where it goes from now.

  • It seems like he will carry out the good deed of the week while looking after his "charge." More aimed at kids as Star Wars was always originally meant to be for.

  • Last time I looked E5 available but only 720p. Will wait for a proper 1080p.

  • Saw Ep 5. I'm getting a little bored of this to be honest. Very basic stories, one dimensional. goodie does good deed of the day and beats the baddie. Long term, this is not enough to satisfy my interest.

  • Just got E5 1080p. We'll watch it tonight and review tomorrow.

  • Well just watched this. Not the most action episode but it wasn't bad. We learnt that the sand people on Tatooine use sign language. Something new.

  • I'll continue watching this to the end as the episodes are so short, but the story telling is very basic.

  • Just watched Episode 6. Superb cross and double cross.


    There's an encoding glitch about 15 mins in that makes MPC throw a wobbley. Restarting and FF to it and it plays OK from there.


    Let's hope E7 keeps it going.

  • We'll probably watch it on Monday as we're on to the last episode of GOT season 7 tonight and the weekend is usually blockbusters. Watched E7 last night. Gripping stuff.

    Yes that was the E6. Good stuff especially the way Mando gets out of the cell. I've decanted E7 onto a USB HDD to use the lappy on the TV later.

  • Another good episode, more of the story concerning the child unravels with a cliff hanger end. Looks like E8 will resolve some things?
