As I mentioned earlier, I’m starting a new video series as a companion piece too As part of at the The dropout. The video usually starts with the Monday article and is published in the magazine Youtube Channel the following week. That’s a bit cool because we’re helping restart the magazine’s movie channel. So if you could get a subscription our way it would mean a lot.
With that in mind, here is last week’s episode. On the occasion of the season premiere of The MandalorianWe watched Exploring a Fallen World on the show. In particular, the trope of the last survivors of a fallen world wandering through the ruins has become a common trope in contemporary science fiction of the mass media like the third season of Star Trek: Discovery or the new series Raised by wolves. So we thought it might be interesting to look at the trope and how it differs from the conventional representation of the trope war of stars Universe.
