Aloha Everyone,

I am enjoying the Mandalorean TV series. Before the release of its Season II, I am catching up with the first episodes. Each is somewhere between 25-35 minutes. My granddaughter sits next to me and provides information on the characters that I am unfamiliar with. It is a time for my granddaughter to take a short break from her rigorous online class schedule and for us to have our time together.

A takeaway from one of the episodes is the main character, Dijarin who questions his beliefs on what Mandalorean stands for. He asks who are the true Mandaloreans.

In the original Star Wars series, its creator George Lucas cleverly incorporated the teachings of Buddhism and Taoism using Yoda as its teacher. In the Mandalorean series, Dijarin ponders on the spiritual mysteries of the Mandalorean. The creators’ attempt to explore contemporary characteristics as well as discords between liberals and orthodox conservatives religious beliefs is an ambitious but a worthwhile undertaking.

However, even without getting into such deeper meanings of Mandalorean, it worth watching as pure entertainment.

Aloha -- Cathi
