Mmm boy there’s a lot of fan service in this one, 3.5 readers.
Two hutts to replace Mighty Jabba. A defeated wookie who I’m going to guess will return. Speaking of returns, a new rancor is back.
Meanwhile, the speeder bike gang going to work for Boba is something new.
I’m enjoying this series. I do think Disney/Star Wars has lost its way a bit in charting a course and perhaps the overall lesson is that stories that veer too far away from the Empire timeline don’t work.
Anyway, that’s it. That’s my review.
🤔 Episode by episode, eh? Methinks you’re biased toward “Star Wars.” I’m having a difficult time getting into this series.
Well, there’s a lot to unpack here. The little post Mandalorian scene where Boba blasts Bib Fortuna and takes Jabba’s throne is a lot of fun but can it build a series? I think Boba’s allure was that he was the strong, silent type. Did we really need to see him out of the mask, talking and so on?
Then again, I guess they gave us the Mandalorian for that. So if you miss quiet, stoic Boba, then you can watch Mando. If you want to know what makes Boba tick, then you can watch this show.
To its credit, it isn’t a bait and switch where Boba leaves in the first five minutes after handing his criminal enterprise off to long lost second cousin twice removed Jenny Fett. (They did that in the Mandalorian though. Every Mando who isn’t Mando is a lady Mando with armored bazongas. Walt Disney’s frozen head must be spinning in its cryo chamber deep below the surface of Magic Mountain.)
I think he’d blame the Jews.
