Yeah, the Razorcrest sure does take a beating basically every episode, for some reason.

And, apropos of nothing:

Coming from someone who refers to themselves as "jedimaster" in their username, your cynicism doesn't hold much merit.

Aside from that, it's a TV show budget, the directors have made it clear their refrain from using CGI because they are very much in favor of traditional practical effects, and I seriously doubt you could do much better.

All that being said, it's way more than any Star Wars fan could have expected from a live-action sci-fi series.

All in all, I am looking forward to seeing the live action version of Tython.

Iím sorry that I named my account when I was 10. Sue me, I guess? What a weird sort of personal attack though.

I expected more. Not in terms of CGI/effects, but I did expect more.

I'm looking forward to it myself. I screamed with joy (on the inside) when they mentioned the planet's name.

Since SWTOR is set 3600+ years before the movies and the shows, Tython wouldn't look the way it does in the game. The temple would probably be in ruins and overgrown with vegetation, would be my guess. And there's also the fact that SWTOR is more in the Legends category, they can take some creative liberties with it.

I am really loving The Mandalorian so far, probably the best live action Star Wars we have gotten in recent years, in my opinion. I have been looking forward to each episode, week by week.

I'll be brutally honest: While the Season 1 was really good, the so far "adventures" of Mando_The_Daddy in Season 2 were just beyond MEH and I was wondering what will be his adventure in the next episode - perhaps he will have issues with his shoes and will seek help of nearest shoemaker, who, conveniently will be placed in some (waterish this time) planet and then Mando will need to fight giant sharks in order to get his shoes fixed.

FORTUNATELY Episode 5 finally has brought a bit of Star Wars into Star Wars universe and we have seen a decent fight and meaningful progress I wont make any spoilers about certain baby and certain Jedi.
And Hell Yesssss, some important names have been mentioned and some locations too, so finally we are getting somewhere!

But first 4 Episodes were very, very poor filler....
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

Don't forget that the shoemaker will then betray the Mando, and then we'll meet yet another character Dave Filoni created.

Well ... possibly !

If they are now looking at or dealing with

Spoiler


It should be interesting to see where this goes. I hope that they can get to recording the next part of the series. Seems like this pandemic has really put a damper on things !

Just my thoughts on the matter !
