Original Content podcast: Reasons to be thankful for streaming and Star Wars

Since its a holiday week for those of us in the United States, weve put together an (even more) unstructured episode of the Original Content podcast.
Among other things, this gives us a chance to update our initial review of The Mandalorian by acknowledging the Disney+ shows breakout character, known unofficially as Baby Yoda maybe that counts as a spoiler, but hes all over social media already, and hes even the subject of new Disney merchandise that seems to have been rushed into production.
Beyond our Mandalorian catch-up, Star Wars comes up again during our discussion of things from the streaming and entertainment world that were thankful for.
Despite some behind-the-scenes turmoil, the Disney era at Lucasfilm has brought us some delightful films, particularly The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. It might seem kind of redundant to praise two of the most commercially successful films of all time, but its also an opportunity to address the online backlash and criticism directed primarily at Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
Moving beyond the galaxy far, far away, we also discuss topics like Netflix shows (Another Life) that were excited to see return, plus the streaming series (See) and movies (Marriage Story) that were currently enjoying.
