That whole beginning was total fanservice. The targeting computer graphics, the "pilot screams while ship is blown up around him", Mos Eisley. . . (Wait, he's taking a kid to the most wretched hive of scum and villainy?), the cantina. . .
And I loved it.
Do we know why the other Mandalorians rescued Mando from the other bounty hunters? Not only did the fighters put themselves at risk, it was mentioned that the entire clan would have to move. The whole show really makes me look forward to the back end of the season. In addition to that question, the characters played by Ming Na and Carl Weathers will certainly be back.
Who would have guessed that the cutest couple on TV would be a guy who wears a helmet with a face shield and an puppet character who doesn't speak?
