The Mandalorian S2:C16 – Precise Calculations

In a recent article I talked about this past season of The Mandalorian. The episodes hit their story points, provided us with some key ‘fan service’ moments, but over all lack that extra something.

For the past several weeks I have practically had Last Christmas with Emilia Clarke or auto-play. Its a fantastically funny Christmas Comedy with a nice little twist to it.
