The Take: The Mandalorian – The Good, The Bad and The Twi’Lek

It’s the sixth episode of The Take: The Mandalorian, our podcast after-show diving into the first live-action Star Wars series.

Director Rick Famuyiwa assembles a ragtag, dirty half dozen of bounty hunters for a space prison break gone wrong – and it’s the best and funniest we’ve seen from the series to date.

Warning!!! This show contains SPOILERS!!!


After a week of infuriating Star Wars discourse, co-pilots Blake Howard and Lindsey Romain take refuge in the joy of The Mandalorian Chapter 6 – The Prisoner. Blake and Lindsey discuss live-action Twi’leks, Bill Burr’s welcome comedic edge, a John Carpenter synth-style score and much more.

As always, Blake and Lindsey announce “Cantina alien of the week,” “Surprise of the week” and the “episode MVP.”
