6. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 3 Recap

Hosts Steve and Tim talk about one of the best episodes yet in this young season of The Mandalorian. Steve apologizes, in fact, for just how much he talks! There is talk about just what The Sin might be, where The Mandalorian gets his inspiration for infiltration, and the charge of the jetpack brigade.

Feedback! The Hosts go over the first feedback sent into the show to the thisisthewaypodcast@gmail.com and then start talking about the most excitingly disappointing episode of The Mandalorian so far.

9. The Mandalorian, Chapter 5 Watch Along Commentary

Hosts Tim, Andy, and Steve gather once again to watch another episode of The Mandalorian, this one entitled "The Gunslinger." Visits to familiar places, mentions, call backs, thematic echoes...this episode has so much to enjoy and nitpick and so does Chapter 5 of the show! Please listen along and marvel at how much better the sound is when three guys sit close together while watching a TV show in Tim's house...maybe too close?

5. The Mandalorian, Chapter 3 Watch Along Commentary

Hosts Steve and Tim watch what may be the best episode of The Mandalorian just three episodes into the debut season on Disney+ and they talk about what they're watching. Forgive them, because they pause this episode a few times, but they promise not to do that again...or too much, at least. If you have feedback, you can share it with them via e-mail at thisisthewaypodcast@gmail.com and, oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisistheway/support

4. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 2 Recap

Hosts Steve, Tim, and regular guest Andy discuss Chapter 2. After a pilot episode that met expectations, the second chapter seemed to instill less enthusiasm, but it's still got great moments and it's still great television.

8. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 4 Recap

Hosts Steve, Tim, AND Andy discuss the fourth episode of The Mandalorian entitled Sanctuary and also give mid-season grades. This episode only became available after Chapter 5 went online, but it was because of technical difficulties during the edit, some of which may or may not be apparent in the final product. The guys continue to try new things to make the experience easy, but still fun for everyone.

17. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 8 Recap

Steve troops on without Andy or Tim and finishes up the recaps of season one. It was a great season and season two will (eventually) be released if the world ever recovers from the pandemic. There may be more episodes of This is the Way, but this is probably it for season one of The Mandalorian, unless the guys can get together and chat about the news coming out about season two and talk about what they liked and didn't like about the first set of episodes.

16. This is the Way We View Star Wars After Seeing Rise of Skywalker

It's another special episode recorded long after the Rise of Skywalker graced theaters on opening night and gone are hosts Tim and Andy, so prepare yourselves for 51 minutes and 51 seconds of our host Steve giving you his unfiltered and sometimes meandering thoughts on not just the movie, but the direction of Star Wars under Disney. A lot has happened since December and since the confirmed leaks didn't ruin the experience for Steve, it must have been the poor storytelling that did that!  Your thoughts and opinions are valuable and form your point of view, so don't be afraid to share them, but the hosts aren't looking for controversy. What might have been three hosts discussing the movie only became something different months later and we hope you understand. Send us feedback to thisisthewaypodcast@gmail.com and try to remember that we actually love Star Wars here! That's why we feel so strongly about it!--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisistheway/support

15. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 7 Recap

Anyone know how to get to Jabba's Palace? I think a couple of hosts are "hanging out" there. Host Steve goes "Solo" in this one, still with a cold, microphone too close to his hands (apparently), and he tries editing out as many coughs and sips of water as he can. The Reckoning, the seventh episode of season one of The Mandalorian, might be the best yet, if for no other reason than the stakes feel higher this late in the season. Will the co-hosts thaw out of the carbonite they must be encased in by the time the final recap gets recorded? Even Steve doesn't know!

14. This is the Way: The Mandalorian, Chapter 6 Recap

Well, what can be said? The hosts keep trying new things and this episode has a little of everything, from a slight format change to a new microphone and recording position. One of those works out okay, the other, not so much. Find out which is which by listening to Steve, Tim, and Andy talk about The Prisoner which is the sixth episode of season one of The Mandalorian. Chapter 6 had a little bit of everything, too, from the Gungan reference that the hosts just declined to mention to Andy's mind being blown about a Spongebob Squarepants tie-in to Steve trying his best to edit the episode in as short a time as possible. There are only two chapters left before the show goes on hiatus and only one more show before The Rise of Skywalker airs.

13. This is the Way We View Star Wars Before Seeing Rise of Skywalker

It's a special episode recorded on the night of the Los Angeles red carpet, world premiere event for Rise of Skywalker and hosts Tim and Andy give predictions on what they think will happen in this final movie of the Skywalker story. Steve knows exactly what will happen because the leaks were confirmed, BUT he doesn't spoil anything for anyone, he just talks about what he'd like to see happen and wistfully pines for a world where The Last Jedi never happened. He also ends his thoughts and the podcast on a little bit of a rant, righteous, but perhaps "preaching to the choir" in a fervent manner that surprised his co-hosts and inadvertently brought on some laughs.
