Braden Herrington and Davie Portman celebrate Life Day with a special STAR WARS super show chatting all about The Mandalorian Season 2 and the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special!

Spoilers! The BDE give a complete run-down of Mando season 2 with all the crazy twists, turns, and cameos! They give thoughts on each episode, all the new characters brought to life (and returns), Jon Favreau/Dave Filoni saving Star Wars. Plus: Jedi knights, frog lady, Sasha Banks, Bill Burr, and of course “that guy” in the X-Wing!!!

The lads then review the new Disney+ LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special featuring Rey going through a Jedi time warp, creating “dream matches” in the Star Wars universe… in LEGO! Tons of funny moments, throwbacks, cameos, and of course… blue milk.

Tons of Star Wars talk, fan theories, and so much more! Happy Life Day and Merry Christmas!

I have a question for anyone who has seen the Mandalorian. I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars movies outside of the original when I was a kid. Are the movies required viewing for the show? Or do you need the movies for backstory?

I don’t think so. I’ve heard of people who’ve never seen any Star Wars that were able to enjoy it. A lot of the big moments are original trilogy references anyway.


Ok cool, I’m going to check it out. Thanks!

I have non Star Wars fans who loved the end of season 2. As a Star Wars fan those last 4 episodes are better than anything in the last 30 years


Agree with the sentiments in the thread. I’ve seen just about everything Star Wars, but feel fondest about the original trilogy, and I think you can run straight out of Return of the Jedi and dive into The Mandalorian and probably feel better about the franchise than many of us who’ve consumed the stuff in between. :slight_smile: Hope you like it!
