The song choice becomes apparent.

This is a normal post You know what?
I got offered 6 months of Disney+ free through O2, and it's actually quite decent.
The Mandalorian is fucking brilliant. Far, far better than the other Star Wars shit they've been churning out of late. And the selection of 'not for kids' stuff is not bad at all. It's got the entire series of The Americans, which is worth a month's subscription by itself.
The subtitles are a bit janky (on the Samsung app, at least) and the overall navigation experience is a bit shit, but it makes a nice change from the bollocks that Netflix tries to pass off as content these days.

10 out of 13.

This is a normal post The best thing it has is Atlanta.
Apart from that, I’ve been underwhelmed.

This is a normal post Mandalorian is great.
Also I'm semi-invested in the Marvel stuff, which means sticking with it.

Got some way to go before it's a functionally smooth as Amazon and Netflix, but Disney owns so much now there's quite a bit of content.

This is a normal post I know that The Mandalorian did reasonably well, anyway.
What with that 'Baby Yoda' wankery and whatnot. But I think if they had been more upfront about the fact that the whole thing is basically a retelling of Lone Wolf and Cub - or even if they just described it as 'Space Witcher', they would have significantly increased their viewing figures. I'm sure there are plenty of people I've myself that just overlooked it for months because Disney's last few attempts at Star Wars have been largely awful.

Most of the Mandalorian's first series is great, but be honest, there's too many filler episodes. The second season felt more like an extended advert as they kept stopping the plot to introduce characters from their million or so spin-off series.

This is a normal post Welcome to the world of franchise fiction.
This is how it works. You buy one thing that references 10 things. Each of those 10 things reference another 10 things, and so on.

So to get the fullest understanding of the story you end up having to buy 100,000,000 books, comics, bathmats, etc.
