Anything with Werner Herzog can't be bad. I may have to wait awhile but I am going to see this show sometime.

I read an article that the producers were thinking of
replacing Baby Yoda puppet with CGI if it didn't look
realistic enough in post-production. Reportedly, Herzog
called them cowards and told them to leave it. LOL I'm
glad they kept the puppet. I generally find CGI
distracting.

The relative lack of CGI has been refreshing.  The few fully CGI creatures they've had looked like stop motion even.

My understanding is that THE MANDALORIAN is shot on digital sets. They literally use the Unreal Game Engine to create the environments the actors are working in.

People don't find CGI distracting. They find bad CGI distracting. It's like plastic surgery. If it is done well, you don't notice.

+++++++
I feel like almost every interaction with Herzog goes that way.

"Coward!"

If you had only seen Star Wars (1977), you could tune into this series and it would work. Aesthetically it's a combination of Western and Japanese Cinema (Lone Wolf & Cub, Have Gun Will Travel, Seven Samurai). The Empire is defeated (as the open crawl implies will happen if the Death Star is blown up) and you don't *need* to know what a Mandalorian is. They have dropped hints about their backstory repeatedly without a full on info-dump. Knowing about Yoda isn't necessary either, the plot only depends on the viewer knowing that he's the MacGuffin child that is driving the plot.

Well, one of my biggest fears for this series has came to pass. Not only did we see what Mando looked like as a kid, but his adult face was shown as well. What makes the decision to expose his face especially disappointing is that the scene would have worked even better without revealing to the viewer exactly what the droid did to treat the Mandalorian's head wound.

Geez.

This is the best live action Star Wars since ESB.

Spoiler

We have been seeing him as a kid all the way through havenít we? Iíll need to check the flashbacks as they may have been POVs only.

Anyway, loved the ending. The tie (ha!) in to previous stories in other series is especially intriguing & I wonder whether we will now see something in the Clone Wars cartoon

I do have one suggestion as a possible temporary work-around - if you disable
WYSIWYG in your Settings/Forum Preferences, it may make it able for you to
post in the thread.

*****

That solved the issue for me
