Pros
  1. 17 being the MVP
  2. Some Jiren's Backstory
  3. First few minutes were just amazing and fast-paced action.
Cons
  1. Jiren's backstory was generic
  2. We still didn't get the full backstory for Jiren

Overall

Android 17 sacrifices himself
Dragon Ball Super Episode 127 had a lot going for it. The first few minutes were just fast-paced and gloriously filled with action. But during the middle of the episode, it slowed down. We also got some backstory into Jiren. But that story was pretty generic and didn't offer anything new. Yet there is still more to Jiren's story left out which I thing is a good idea. This allows the creators to make the story better and flesh it out as the need be rather than limiting themselves to what they already have.
