My expectations are not high. I'm hoping it's good. I expect it will be enjoyable at some level. I also suspect the writing will have issues. It's a common theme with Star Wars... anything, really.

It's not a shot at Disney to say that the story group hasn't got a strong track record... and it was bad in the old times too. It's a hard job, but it does feel like some things get passed through with too little attention to the details.

Staying on topic, I'm cautiously hopeful.

Hopefully they go more towards the adult fan, in terms of stories and character development. I would love a "darker" Star Wars, a look at the seedier underworld, kinda like Game of Thrones/ Breaking Bad.

Depends on how they do it.  If they're just examining people who live on the other side of the law, that'll be fine.  If the show itself (not just the characters) starts embracing Moral Relativism and Nihilism, I'm out.

I hear ya. I'm hoping it'll be like Solo in that it wasn't concentrating on the civil war, it dipped in every once and a while, but for the most part it was kinda World Building on the everyday civilian life.

I'd be out so fast. I want my entertainment time to escape reality, not find an even worse reality. I referring to the "grittiness" of GoT/Breaking Bad... not the setting you've chosen

Admittedly though, there is an audience for it.

I was mostly referring to the target audience level of show... More of an adult then say, Resistance level (child- young adult).

So I guess I'm asking for movie PG/ PG13 level . (if that makes sense?)

Rather than wish for another Game of Thrones (and I love GoT, but Disney is never going there with a core property), I’d rather them look at successful sci-fi shows of the past like Star Trek TNG. You can make a show geared at adults that can still run in prime time and be a huge hit. I think the entertainment industry is trying to make too many things funny or “dark” these days. No doubt a show about Mandalorians is going to have some grit,  but why not try to make a good solid Sci-fi drama. That’s what I’m hoping for.

Firefly style could work too...
