Star Wars: The Mandalorian Chapter 15 (2020) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
After two of the series best episodes, the penultimate story for Season 2 always risked being a bit of a let down.  And whilst it’s not as ‘essential’ as the previous two, The Believer still delivers with great action, some uncomfortable role reversals and more epic Boba Fett moments.  Whilst Mando is always good fun, this episode belongs to Bill Burr who delivers a nuanced, fun and charming turn as the retuning Mayfeld.  It’s also the first episode without baby Yoda (yes I know he has a name but really…) and it shows that, with the right cast and right story, the show is more than just it’s cute side kick. One to go…

Best Bit: Oh you know the moment…
