New Star Wars A TV show The Mandalorian following the adventures of the tyrannical hunter Din Djarin. It has the power of the Western vibe, another science fiction writer Raj Khanna appreciated immediately.
“One of the things I’ve always wanted to see from the Star Wars universe is deal with other genres, not just opera, but whites, entertainers, spies, whatever,” says Khanna in Section 395 of the song. Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast. “I think the whole universe is wide and deep enough to deal with this, so that Western feeling worked well for me.”
Din Djarin is a man of few words, and for almost the entire show, his face is hidden behind a mysterious metal helmet. Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy recipient David Barr Kirtley he says it’s worth it, because the character wants to benefit from the popularity of another Star Wars hunter, Boba Fett.
“[Boba Fett’s] The real attraction is that he is amazing, and you do not know anything about him, and there is not much development, “says Kirtley.” [Din Djarin] he was very civilized and you know his history in detail. “
But a science fiction writer Matthew Kressel found the lack of form to be disappointing, especially during the eight-part TV program. Says Kressel: “You see little about him, but every time he tells you something, you just see him. “Who is he? What is his character? What does he think? Does he have great ambitions? I have never heard of any of them.”
Fictional Writer Erin Lindsey he says the answer could be the inclusion of Din Djarin with a similar, equal-strength role between Sherlock Holmes and Watson. This can allow Din Djarin to be more isolated and unpredictable while providing better opportunities and emotional connections.
He said: “We don’t need to understand him, but we have to deal with him in some way, even when we meet someone.
Listen to the full interview with Rajan Khanna, Matthew Kressel, and Erin Lindsey in Section 395 of Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy (above). And check out some of the highlights below.
David Barr Kirtley on nostalgia:
“This reminded me a lot of what I was seeing The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. it’s my dad. I do not remember the show well. It’s Western – I think like Western or Steampunk Western or something – but I vividly remember how I saw this show with my dad, and that reminded me again, because it has this Old West brand. of vibe to it. … What this program is doing is a vigorous denial of the progress that TV myths have made over the past 20 years. Especially in the middle, it is very episodic. It’s simple and straightforward, and its font is straight, and it’s just fun. I think a lot of you can respond to this would be if you find that going back to the easy time of a radio show is refreshing and fun or just a resume. ”
Matthew Kressel on bad notes:
“I see this very much in bad news, when the author wants something to happen, so he distorts the realities of the world for this to happen. And in [the episode called] ‘Stubborn,’ that’s this stupid light. It’s like, ‘Oh, when you print this beacon then X-wings come and blow you up.’ And I said, ‘All right? I think so? ‘ So obviously you can just take the lamp and put it anywhere, and the X wings come in and say, ‘Well, then the lamp, I think we should shoot it.’ How true is this? And why is it that the train is not moving through space? Why is it moving so fast? I do not understand that. As a result, there were strange, foolish conspiracy theories. ”
Erin Lindsey pa Giancarlo Esposito:
“Giancarlo Esposito is one of my favorite television actors. He played one of the worst people on TV of all time. So they have a lot of raw clay to work on there. Apparently their goal with this season – especially I think so – was just to let him know and let us know he exists, and he is probably the worst in the next season, which is one of the reasons I enjoy it. But one of the things that makes Giancarlo Esposito so amazing is that he is a very smart actor, and how do you get the best out of a clever artist in a black cape with a Darth Vader outfit surrounded by stormtroopers? This is as clever as a hammer. Therefore it will be very interesting to see how they combine these two things. ”
Rajan Khanna on the good hunters:
“I’ve always been looking for the best hunter of ‘scum and villany’, so I think it was good. It also makes sense for the ‘Han first’ shooting ‘of Star Wars. S I don’t feel guilty about it either, and I kind of liked that.… I really liked that big problem [in episode 4]—A big deal that was difficult and dangerous — was just that AT-ST Walker, which we have seen many times in the past, and the Ewoks can kill them with two logs, but at this point it is a destructive thing, and it takes a lot of effort to bring it down, which I appreciated. I loved seeing that little scale. “
