The disappointing length of last week's episode of "The Mandalorian" sparked some frustration among fans, us included. However, this week's installment, titled "The Sin," is a similarly short 36 minutes, which gives rise to a new theory;

Both "Star Wars Rebels" and "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" animated spin-off series, for example, were approximately half an hour in length ("Mandalorian" writer Dave Filoni worked on both). So, perhaps "The Mandalorian" was never intended to have hour-long or even 45-minute episodes — ”Star Wars” fans just assumed. And there was never any official confirmation of the new show's running time, so perhaps the best way to regard "The Mandalorian" going forward is that it's going to be more ... "bite-sized" than we originally anticipated.

Adjust - Expectations

That's not to say we're not enjoying it ... there's just not as much of it as we'd hoped for. Adjust your expectations accordingly and you'll be fine.

Mandalorian - Pedro - Pascal - Planet - Bounty

Anyway, we last saw the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) finally able to leave the planet where he acquired his bounty, the cute and adorable "baby Yoda," or the Child, as he's being referred to officially. We've also since found out that the planet was Arvala-7 (and thankfully not Tatooine). This is interesting as both are located in the Outer Rim Territories and both have a thriving population of Jawas, indicating the small-scale scavenger race is spread out across the region.

As his Razor Crest spacecraft streaks toward the planet where the Client (Werner Herzog) awaits, the Mandalorian bonds a little more the incredibly cute and adorable Child, and we suspect already that our antihero might not be able to give the Child up as easily as he'd like to be able to.
