James, at 1:49:30, were you imitating the Ol' Ball Coach Steve Spurrier? Because if you were, good job. If not, still good job.

So I was FINALLY able to get my hands on a RTX 30 series GPU
I ended up upgrading to a RTX 3070, for a bit of a premium over what I originally expected to pay for a GPU, but I was tired of looking and my build is nearing the 30 day mark on returnability.
Time=Money / Money=Time... I got tired of wasting time to save some money, so I spent some money to save some time.

If you're in the Bay Area and looking for a store with regular stock, instead of having to rely on scalpers and dodgy online sparring matches against sniper bots, just let me know. I'll tell you were to check.

Now I gotta find the time to actually build this thing, now that I think I have all the pieces.

I think the real challenge with Mando removing the helmet/armor will be when attempting to unite the different Mandalorian factions. He is the key to getting the Death Watch/Children of the Watch to join the fight and they may very well reject him because he no longer 'has honor' in their eyes. Its been easy enough for Mando to break down his walls and perceptions when being isolated from others that thought him and thought the same, but with Grogu out of the picture (temporarily) he'll potentially caught between various Mandalorian cultures. I'm expecting we'll see all of the various clans reuniting, including long-lost clans and ones we've not gotten to see yet.

I'm so glad Hades is still being discussed – I was a little late to the game but I'm loving it! Guillaume, I'm impressed at how quickly you beat the last boss. It took me about 90 attempts. I realized later that avoiding the pact of punishment was a bad move!

Thrawn never properly failed in his role and was always a step ahead of the Rebels; it was always his underlings who botched or ignored his orders and cost the win, other than the space whale ending which I disliked.

And sure, Mando S3 will most likely be the retaking of Mandalore, but that is one show out of at least three that will lead to something bigger with Thrawn at the center of it.

I completely agree with both points. I enjoyed Rebels more than Clone Wars. That B-Swing episode really stuck out to me and I just adore it. But that space whale ending let it down something fierce. Just came completely out of nowhere. However the bright side was that it removed Ezra from everything. I think he was by far the least interesting character in the show.

And yeah, the retaking of Mandalore will also be the catalyst to the helmet and armour coming off full time. He's now been exposed to the concept of the non-radical Mandalorians via Bo-Katan. They've been hinting at it for a while.

With a multiverse theme.  Home Remodel would be fun.

Did he?

I think Logan was responding to the previous episode, specifically the email where we talked about F-Zero wrestling. I didn't see any tweet from letter writer James.

The thing is...just because he was introduced in a Children's show it doesn't mean they are going to keep him in that format of villian weakness.  And actually he was appropriately cool and evil in a new and different Star Wars way.  I think they can and will make him a good villain.

That said, this isn't really a new universe, but maybe, just maybe they will give the Manadaloran team enough freedom to do something really cool...maybe in re-write this universe or at least the ending of Star Wars Saga.  That would be nice.
