THE MANDALORIAN SEASON 3 REVIEW
Star Wars fans rejoice! Our favorite helmeted bounty hunter Din Djarin (yeah I said it) and the delightful Grogu are reunited and onto a new adventure…yes, Grogu is back. Please turn to The Book of Boba Fett for any questions. After removing his helmet in violation of the Mandalorian creed, Din must travel to the treacherous and supposedly cursed planet of Mandalore to bathe in its sacred waters as a means of redemption. Meanwhile, the ousted princess Bo Katan struggles to gather support for her campaign to retake the Mandalorian’s ancestral planet, while newly-elected magistrate Greef Karga faces a nefarious band of pirates who seek control of Nevarro…and that’s just the first episode. With the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni created a worldwide phenomenon that immediately cemented itself as one of the most popular and beloved entries in the entire Star Wars universe. Now, three years later, The Screener Squad has gathered in council with the daunting task of deciding whether the show’s long-awaited third season stands as strong as its predecessors. Some of us thought so…some of us did not. But whatever our disagreements and takeaways, the Squad had a blast discussing the series. After all, like Mandalorians, Star Wars fans are stronger together. Take a listen to the full audio review to hear Wright, Neil, Rose and Melina dish on The Mandalorian: Season 3. But listener beware: here there be spoilers. I have spoken.

Wright Sulek (Screener Squad, Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Trash in the Can, Audio Editor)
Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.
Neil Anderson (Screener Squad)
I first got hooked on movies when I saw Star Wars at a drive-in theater as a kid. Growing up in a small, rural town meant not having access to a lot of movies. In college, that all changed. I couldn’t get enough. I love it all — flicks, films, movies, and cinema. I still have that wide-eyed wonder of that kid watching movies from the back of a pick-up truck at the drive-in.
Rose Mattox (Screener Squad)
Originally hailing from Austin then Houston, Rose has been an avid movie and TV fanatic pretty much since birth. She spends spending her days watching Star Trek reruns, 60’s spy fiction, and Audrey Hepburn movies with her beloved minion (see: dog Riley). She also occasionally dabbles in comedy, screenwriting, as well as graphic and interior design. Rose has been contributing to One of Us since 2019 as a member of the Screener Squad, as well as making regular appearances on Eye on the Prize during awards season. She can be found on Twitter at @nightattheopera.
Melina Eames (Screener Squad)
Melina first discovered that she carried the nerd gene at the tender age of four following her exposure to a little film called A New Hope. In the twenty-some years that followed, Melina continued to grow into her geek identity through the discovery of Batman, Mst3k, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and The Mandalorian. But perhaps her most significant discovery came at the age of fourteen when a night of YouTube mining led her to the review site of Spill.com. Melina became a devoted follower whose fandom did not end with the site’s demise. By then, it had worked its dark magic and left her with a love and appreciation for film criticism that she has yet to shrug.
