How long does it take to watch The Mandalorian season 1?

Episodes of The Mandalorian are surprisingly short for a sci-fi drama. Their runtime varies between 31 and 46 minutes. They’re even shorter if you subtract the credits and recaps of what went down in previous episodes.

There are 8 episodes in season 1 and according to Bingeclock, it will take you 5 hours and 23 minutes to watch them all (again).

Mandalorian season 1 recap

The Mandalorian takes place five years after the fall of the Empire and kicks off with the titular character, a bounty hunter, accepting a mysterious gig that involves him locating a vague target and bringing said target alive to The Client.

By the end of the pilot, he discovers that the bounty is none other than Baby Yoda, a big-eared infant creature known as The Child who is 50 years old and can already use The Force, though it seems to drain it of energy.

Mando brings The Child to The Client, but has second thoughts about leaving the innocent baby in the hands of dangerous Imperials. So he rescues Baby Yoda and the two are on the run, Mando understanding that The Child is better off under his protection.

Plenty of fast friendship, conflict, hostage situations and cool fight scenes follow. In the season finale, we see Mando’s face for the first time and learn that his real name is Din Djarin. He and his allies go to the lair of the Mandalorian clan where they catch up with the Armorer, the leader of a tribe of Mandalorian warriors.

Upon seeing Baby Yoda, the Armorer tells Mando that a group of extinct warriors had similar abilities as The Child – the Jedi – and that he has to reunite the creature with its own kind.

Too bad that Galactic Empire officer Moff Gideon, the Big Bad of season 1, has other plans. The finale ends with him wielding a Darksaber, an ancient weapon forged by a Mandalorian Jedi. The good guys may have won for now, but they’ll have to face many bumps ahead as they look for Baby Yoda’s home planet.
