As much as I loved the Mandalorian, I hated the formulaic story structure. The early episodes all felt drawn out and unnecessary, and it doesn’t really get good until the final two episodes.
So while I’m a fan of the show and Star Wars in general, I wouldn’t put it in the same tier of prestige dramas you list either. That said, it is competent storytelling, and that is often hard to come by in the galaxy far far away. So I’ll take it. 🤓
