The Mandalorian 

Werner Herzog’s weird Space Nazi character laundering Nazi gold, er Beskar steel, sure is something, I don’t know what

I’m not sure I appreciate how racist The Mandalorian himself is to the slave labor class (droids) so far

I don't completely blame him; they're basically walking/rolling Alexas

@sudoreboot Not really. In Star Wars droids are portrayed as much more sentient than that. Also the 1930s film influences on Star Wars often show up the most in the activities of the droids, which gives droids too many visual shorthand indications of (unwitting) slave labor.

Oh I agree that they're sentient and wouldn't condone mistreating them, but I can't argue with the logic that they're a security risk he can't afford in his line of work
