Gina Carano Yes, she's a badass.I’m just glad to see Gina Carson but that was a great episode.
Mimi Kanasis! (from Kimmy Schmidt) is what I yelled as soon as I saw her.Yeah, the woman Mando goes to had very questionable acting.
I really enjoy the show episode by episode, but I really wish there was more of a overarching story going on right now. The past three episodes in particular have played out a bit like an anthology series. It doesn’t matter the order you watch them in as long as you watch them because nothing is really carrying over from episode to episode so far.
Agreed. Outside of last night, which is finally starting to tie some of it together, it's just been some random action episodes with no push to a finale.yeah, it appears (for now) that the show will just be random adventures of Mando and the child, with no real overall story arch. It’s very rare to see a show format like this in the age of binge / cliffhanger TV.
What I've found interesting about this show, as @rhino4evr points out, is it's definitely rare to see a show where it isn't a cliffhanger or things are just over the top unbelievable every episode (looking at you Ray Donavon).
I'm actually really enjoying watching a show with a strong male lead who doesn't have a ton of emotion, but you can see that they are slowly building towards him having some eventually at some point. Every male lead doesn't have to be an anti-hero; or conflicted all the time and on the emotional edge. I actually find the show refreshing in that sense. Finally something different from the last decade+. Not that this is going to win Emmys for best acting, but it's still a nice change of pace.
