I gave it a shot, Jeff.
Aww, crap. What can I say? Senility must be creeping in, Russ. It's been that kind of week. Mea culpa. Perhaps you're more of a sci-fi guy than you might think!
As a mostly non sci-fi guy, I've surprised myself and have actually gotten into The Mandalorian. Good stuff.
Glad you're enjoying it. It's a lot of fun, basically a space western...which is like peanut butter and chocolate: two great tastes that taste great together.
