Does anyone else think that this is a Western, because I think that we should add The Mandalorian to the Western genre. I have added small fan/indie Star Wars films about Boba Fett to the Western genre, so why not this series, which is influenced by The Dollars Trilogy and Spaghetti Westerns. Pedro Pascal even says so here.https://variety.com/2019/tv/features/the-mandalorian-jon-favreau-pedro-pascal-western-1203399015/ It has several tropes of the Western genre, so I think that it is a good fit. Some people are saying that it doesn't count because it is in "space". Geography doesn't count, the themes & tropes are what define a Western, as well as any other genre.
