    Just wanted to add, I love how his gear makes a jingling sound like spurs when he walks. Wild West Star Wars is pure gold.

    There is sooooo much to like in this episode — just the fact that they brought in the Ice Cream maker form the Bespin ESB scene is brilliant.

    Was that the Fett Symbol over the door to where the Mandalorians were located? It looked like the sigil on his outfit. I don't know

    Yeah, this is pretty much exactly where I'm at too. I of course have a few small nitpick critiques about some aspects of it, but generally speaking overall, this thing is doing far, far, far more right than wrong. THIS is how you do slow burn properly, and I'm in awe that I've now seen a third installment of Star Wars anything since the OT and am still in in love with it. I thought those days were over.

    Damn shame it took this long to get something this good, but as the old adage says: better late than never.

    How about that ending? Is that not something you imagined for 30 years? Clone Wars did do cool stuff with the numbers and combat but this was just unbelievable. And they’re just teasing us with what they’re planning I bet.

    I didn’t even realize how much I wanted to see that, until I was seeing it.

    This show, so far, has had the uncanny ability of giving more than I knew I wanted. I mean, it’s a got bucket-head bounty hunter with his very own Yizmo. That’s why I keep saying that I can’t believe that it’s real — it’s like they’re reading my freaking mind and mashing up two of my loves, in a show that feels like it was made just for me.

    Omg, that is it!

    Yes that ending was dope. It is going to be so cool seeing what other actions scenes JF has planned.

    So
    Signets... what is Head Mando referring to? Are the signets on the armor?

    This show is the most exciting thing to happen to this SW fan since I was nine years old and visiting my favorite heroes once again in ESB. This is on par with the one-two return of SW in Heir to the Empire and Dark Empire. I cannot think of higher praise for this show.

    It is the symbol of all mandalorians.

    If you see this symbol. You have stumbled into Clan Fett

    Edit: If there is one thing I would like them to bring into the show would the use of some of the Mando'a that Karen Traviss created.

    Did you see this symbol in episode 3?

    I thought @Enewtabie was referring to the skull.

    No he was refering to the Mythosaur Skull. Most people associate it with Boba

    I was mainly posting that to say if you see this. It is Clan Fett

    I love how low-key and understated this show is. Very quiet, very small scale, lots of atmosphere and visuals telling the story instead of dialogue.

    And the character is named Paz Vizsla.

    He’s keeping it in the family.
