The Mandalorian TV programme by Jon Favreau, 2019

I am a huge fan of the incredible Jon Favreau TV programme The Mandalorian released in 2019. Even though it's been 5 years since it was released, I still regularly find my perceptual peepers hankering after this stone cold classic, or at the very least craving a wee read around the subject matter, perhaps open up the Wikipedia page or find a YouTube analysis of the TV programme.

Why is The Mandalorian so good?

As well as an unwavering sense of nostalgia that keeps me returning to this TV programme, there's also a hypnotic je ne sais quoi about The Mandalorian that keeps it fresh no matter how many times I revisit this work of art. Maybe it's that I was an impressionable young whippersnapper in the year 2019 when I first discovered The Mandalorian, or the fact that Jon Favreau were absolutely at the top of their game when they released said TV programme. It's hard to pinpoint something so transcendental. Once you love a piece of art you become faithful to it's ethos.

The Mandalorian is a TV programme that is still relevant

One thing's for sure though, The Mandalorian has stood the test of time and then some. It remains as powerful and relevant today as it did in 2019. And why wouldn't it? With stunning visual effects like that, it's no wonder people return to this TV programme again and again. I can't imagine life without it John.

Jon Favreau knocked it out the park

But it's not just the stunning visual effects that make this TV programme great. It's the overall package. The incredible character design for Baby Yoda is a tour de force. The use of practical effects and puppetry is integral, as is the thrilling action scenes. And who can forget outstanding score by Ludwig Göransson. When Jon Favreau created this timeless classic, never mind the ball park, they knocked this one out of the solar system. This bad boy is in danger of bothering Voyager.

Has The Mandalorian stood the test of time?

Of course, there are other TV programmes out there to be argued for. Harder, better, faster, stronger. Some might argue that Jurassic Park is better than The Mandalorian, or that Steven Spielberg is better than Jon Favreau. They may well have a point. But for me, The Mandalorian will always hold a special place in my heart. And 5 years tickling the meridian response does not lie.

The Mandalorian in conclusion

To sum up, The Mandalorian is a wonderful thing, a TV programme of unrivalled quality. It's a TV programme that has etched itself into the psyche, distributing untold tingles up the spine, hogging synapses and monopolising neurons that could otherwise be put to use appreciating more important, or perhaps more useful information. But no matter what life throws at me, I know I can always rely on The Mandalorian to deliver the goods.
