Welp, I saved $14 and pre-paid for a year of Disney+, which ought to keep the kids happy for a while.
Hope the Mandalorian is good.

Justin Charity: Though I know The Mandalorian isn’t about Boba Fett, I’m curious to see how Disney, following George Lucas in Attack of the Clones, will continue to over-embellish and thus ruin Boba Fett’s mythology with this series.
Baumann: You know what fucking owns? That 10 years ago we had a large subscription service in which All of Television came together to offer every channel at an affordable rate. Then people were like “Wait, I don’t want to pay for things I don’t use” and decided it’d be better to pay for each discrete channel, even though they ended up forking over more money to get less stuff in the long run. That absolutely kicks ass, in my opinion. Very well done by American capitalism.
: Because it’s about a bounty hunter, it should be a story about a character who does heinous things to survive a dangerous, unstable world. Because it’s from Disney, we’re probably going to get a story about a character who gets in trouble because he begins to have second thoughts about doing heinous things.
