So much this.
I'd take that man, who while really cool and strong will take a beating here and there because in the end he's still just a human being (well trained, with good equipment, but just a man in the end) who can progress even more to become even more amazing, than MaRey Sue who is already perfect at pretty much everything she does while she never got any kind of proper training (the second one is an absolutely boring and perfectly not relatable character).
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

Stormtroopers and bounty hunters are just men too in the end, with lesser training than one of the best Mando, and said Mando had a full Beskar armor at that point, which makes him harder to kill.

It's also probably easier to anticipate what other people would do than a wild animal's reactions.

In 2 episodes he was beaten by just 1 animal. In 1st by medium sized mount and in 2nd by that other one. Now in fking 3rd all those bounty hunters can't hit him or beat him? " yeah ok I'll believe it"......and then one guy sees past plot hole armor and is like " hey what if shoot the droid,so he doesn't excape us".

SEE PAST BABY YODA. He is even like...sh*t can't forget my carrot...gotta go back and get it.
Well, its true that I also expected him to be more top-knocht cause he would have failed a few times if it werent for the circumstances. The question is if this is how the director wants it to look, that he gets buy with luck, cause thats how it is, or its means he is not good, but just had luck on his side. I would welcome a character which is more supreme, this rather seems to be someone who is yet to become the best.

Sure, it seems baby yoda was the plan from the start, as we have chirstmas coming and it will be baby yoda toys all over the place.At least it reminds me why they are doing such things, simply for money.....

The producers nicely displayed the experience of the Mandalorian. With animals, he is bad off cause he had issues to mount the animal and defeat the ragehorn (or what ever that was). On the otherhand, when he infiltraded the imperial outpost the stormtroopers didnt stand a chance.

Against the bounty hunters it was a bit overdone ofc, but you cant expect to see the reality in TV, right?

Oh please it was 1v1 fight. And again I can look past mount defeat one,because he wanted to mount it, not kill it. I get it. Even though it was a joke.....when Nick Nolte's character is like..."NOPE WE CAN ONLY USE THIS MOUNT AND NOTHING ELSE!" ....and then you see,that the path they took and just /facepalm

I am not saying he has to be best there is...never beaten, never humiliated.
When he gets jetpack he'll soar both litterally and figuratively over his enemies with ease.

Replace the Carrot at end of first episode with simple twi'lek slave...or some long forgotten codes. Well twi'lek slave people would theorize, if he/she was a Jedi...replace it with him getting that egg Jawa's wanted and you'll see so many of shows flaws. And I don't just hate for sake of hating....I liked Rogue One and Solo moives....rest is trash. Force awakens is trash and people were hyping it up and what not....Last Jedi is even more trash and people still praised that bantha poo-doo.

And honeslty I don't care,when they show Rodians and other races in show anymore...Canto Bight ruined that. Because now it's like...uuuuh look at this race/species....now look at this....now look at this one....uuuuh doesn't it scream STAR WARS.....and their focus is on that, while story suffers.

Oh good lord.

Go scrreech all you want on your island. People generally love the show and you aren't going to convince them to hate Star Wars just because you do. Good luck with that...

New episode and yet again, I always expect him to be like a boss and deal with everything, yet all his encounters seem to be very very close if not lucky that he gets away. Not sure if this is intentional or he really is just medicore and thats what the series is about.

And if he didn't have his plot armor...he'd be dead by now.

But out of 5 episodes so far..5th was the best,because it didn't try so hard screaming that this is STAR WARS show. Ok start of it was rubbish with space chase...but rest I actually enjoyed.

Yeah, at least we saw less of the baby yoda. I mean its cute and all, but the show is not about him.

The space chase was again lame, where it was totally obvious what manuver it will require to kill the other BH. Its silly to watch a guy trying to shot another ship with a zillion shots and then the mandalorian kills him on the first try.

Nevertheless I have to agree on the rest of the episode, the idea of the armor taking the shots was a good one cause we finnaly see the usefulness of it. So yes, the episode was mostly very good, but again had the issues.
