'The Mandalorian' Season 1 Episode 2: Baby Yoda continues to be an internet sensation; the internet has spoken
‘Star Wars’ fans have had a lot to enjoy this week, as not one, but two episodes of ‘The Mandalorian’ dropped, in addition to the new video game ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.’ The second episode of the series saw deals with Jawa scavengers, more Kuiil, and the reveal that the Force is strong in everyone’s favourite long-eared green alien baby.
Social media is filled largely with praise for the high quality of the second episode, fans enjoying it just as much if not more than the first. Many fans are still of the opinion that this is the best that ‘Star Wars’ has been in a while. Of course, Baby Yoda, who we get to see a lot more of in this episode, still has much of the internet’s love. “This baby yoda in The Mandalorian is adorable,” says one Twitter user. Kuiil gets a great number of indirect mentions this episode too, as his simple, but memorable catchphrase ends nearly half the tweets about the episode. "If y'all ain't naming y'all #Mandalorian Podcasts "I have spoken", why you in it for," jokes one of the tweets.
Others noticed the unique, original score for the episode that went a long way towards setting the tone. "Can we talk about how stunning and fantastic Ludwig Göransson's score for the Mandalorian is for a quick minute???" asks another user.
While the episode was largely enjoyed, there are some who have complained that it feels too short - especially as they have to wait a whole week before the next episode drops. A user tweeted: "The Mandalorian is so dope other than the fact that each episode is like 30 min."
‘Star Wars’ gamers, in the meanwhile, have celebrated starting off their weekend on a ‘Star Wars’ theme - “New Mandalorian episode tonight and have Jedi Fallen Order to play when I get home, there goes my weekend” says a fan.
The next episode of ‘The Mandalorian’ airs November 22 on Disney+
