CES has been doing its best to replicate the aura of deal-making and industry camaraderie that its annual in-person event is famous for, but there’s no denying it is not the same; your home office is just not a cavernous convention hall with a 50-foot screen, and no matter how well-stocked your fridge is, it probably can’t compare to the Bellagio buffet. One thing this year’s all-digital CES is not lacking, however, is innovation. With 200 sessions and 1,800 industry-le...

Has 'The Mandalorian' on Disney+ Redeemed the Star Wars Universe?

Today a staff writer at Salon argues "The Mandalorian" has redeemed the Star Wars universe: The Disney+ series "The Mandalorian" has been both a critical triumph and commercial success. In my judgment, it's the most compelling live-action story in the "Star Wars" universe since 1983's "Return of The Jedi". To that end, the story in "The Mandalorian's" first two seasons about a mysterious bounty hunter and "the child" (who is actually more than 50 years old) he's entrusted with as they navigat...
