I’m with you on the movies, though.
Part of the appeal for me is the callback to serialized TV of a bygone era. I think Favreau referenced The Incredible Hulk specifically.
I kinda liked the first go-round. No one has yet explained to me why the excellent Pedro Pascal (The Viper) needs to be the star of this production… when 99% of the time it’s just a guy in a robot suit.
Because “The Mandalorian, starring Pedro Pascal” sounds a lot better than “The Mandalorian, starring a rotating cast of stuntmen you’ve never heard of.”
What’s really funny is that it’s only him in the suit about a third of the time anyway. John Wayne’s grandson Brendan does most of the physical stuff.
So weird. I would understand if the director said ¨I just need him there in the suit, his physical presence DOES something for me.¨
But if he gets star billing while barely being there, that´s Apocalypse Now treatment.
