The Mandalorian continues to be arguably the best TV show released all year long, Season 3 of Stranger Things was good, but The Mandalorian so far has also been just as great, if not better.

Episode 4 of The Mandalorian was the first to actually feature more character development for The Mandalorian character. We got to know some of his customs as well as a little bit about his mysterious past.

We learn from this good episode that The Mandalorian was separated from his parents when he was younger. The Mandalorian people came to raise him as a kid and that's why he's the badass he is now.

His upbringing is one of the reasons why he's protecting the small baby Yoda. He wants the young child to live a proper life without all of the evil Empire people from experimenting on him.

In this episode, The Mandalorian lands on a peaceful planet that he believes to be the best place for him and Baby Yoda to reside in. In his opinion, The Mandalorian thinks the bounty hunters won't bother them there.

A person that catches his eye on the planet is a former Rebel soldier named Cara Dune played by Gina Carano.

The two have to work together in order to save a small village from the scavenger Klatooinian Raiders that steal their food and resources.

Even though The Mandalorian and Cara Dune didn't sign up for war, they finally decide to help the villagers out. They even teach the villagers how to fight because the two of them cannot fight the Klatooinian Raiders.

The only thing I did not like about this week's episode was how short the time was for Cara Dune and The Mandalorian to train the villagers to fight.

They pretty much only had one day to train the villagers for battle and this didn't seem realistic to me.

I know this is just a TV show, although seeing the villagers outpower the Klatooinian Raiders didn't seem like it would be feasible in real life. Not to mention the Klatooinian Raiders also had access to their own AT-ST walker!

Seeing the AT-ST Walker was arguably the best part of the episode. It looked a bit different because the Klatooinian Raiders salvaged the parts. They even added some cool looking red eyes to it too!

In the end though, Cara Dune came up with a plan to dismantle the AT-ST by baiting it to walk on a puddle of water.

Once it did that, the walker fell down and The Mandalorian was able to explode the cockpit

I have to admit the main battle of this episode was short, but it was cool to see.

It reminded me a little bit of The Lord of the Rings due to the nice country side location that the battle took place in.

Some other cool parts of the episode is that we learn more about the Mandalorian culture. Mandalorians are allowed to take off their helmet to eat and shower, although they can only do that when nobody else is looking.

The Mandalorian loves this planet a lot, he urges Baby Yoda to stay there forever.

However, his plan doesn't work out since a bounty hunter came to nearly kill both him and Baby Yoda.

At the end of the episode, both Baby Yoda and The Mandalorian have to leave the planet in order to escape from the bad guys following them all of the time.

Anyway, episode 4 of The Mandalorian was excellent and the show continues to be awesome. I hope Cara Dune is in another episode because Gina Carano is so badass in the role!
