Episode 3 of Boba Fett landed and I liked it, despite it being a sinewave of quality. The episode really swings from cool, smart idea to silly, shitty idea over and over. The internet is supposedly making fun of the episode and for good reason.


I mean, come on... They gave Boba the Mighty Morphin Moped Mafia, ffs.


Yeah, it's silly and campy and dumb... but I can't hate it, just groan at it. I love Power Rangers, so maybe that's why.

Look, I'm not even going to bother with the spoilers thing, because spoilers are important to understanding whether you'd like this episode or not.

Like I opened with, the plot and ideas in the episode vacillate wildly from awesome to terrible. The scene where Boba analyses the strategic situation in Mos Espa is great, the scene where the water broker demands audience was meh, the scene where he first confronts then hires the teenage weredroids with attitude was cringe and dumb. The scene here he approaches the Pyke Syndicate to tell them to respect the Tuskan's lands and then returns to the tribe having been wiped out was good, though they protrayed Boba being sad real well, but not angry and wanting revenge.
Then he wakes up in his Bacta Tank and Krrsantan appears out of nowhere, because giant Wookies are well knows silent ninja assassins and while the fight is cool, minus the Might Morphin Moped Mafia, Krrsantan shold have been able to rip every single person there in two with his bear hands.
They do manage to defeat Krrsantan by trickng him into the Rancor pit and then the next day the Hutts come up to the front gate, apologize for trying to kill Boba, gift him a Rancor and piss off because they don't want to be involved in the war between Boba and the Pyke sindicate.
The Rancor is cool and Danny Trejo being his trainer was nice.
On the other hand, the scene of chasing the mayor's majordomo was really not that great, but it would have been made so much better if Boba had flown up into the sky and coordinate the Mighty Morphin Moped Mafia to box the target in and when the target crashed his speeder, instead of just flying down, Boba could have shot his blaster at the majordomo, missing him repeatedly on purpose before landing before him and demanding to be told where the major was.

There's a so much wasted potential and silly shit, but there's also enough good things, it really is going to be a personal thing as to which things you think are more important to focus on.


This episode was 30 minutes in length, which is getting kind of confusing. The episodes are not of a standardized length and the weekly release is just not helping it. Plus,the season is only 7 episodes, so the plot is going to have some massive pacing issues when I rewatch it all in one go.


Again, I still like it, but holy hell is it flawed. I hope they can recover and have a strong finish, because the show and the extended Star Wars universe being established here desperately needs it.

Part of me kind of want Book of Boba Fett to end with Luke showing up, Fett saying the WRONG damn thing, and then Luke just cuts him down. Really I just want more Luke I guess. Awesome Luke, not what we got in the sequel series.

I'm hopeful. Jon and Dave are very ambitious with what they want to do with Star Wars, so they might do something big with the season finale.
But that doesn't mean I'm not concerned, especially after episode 3.

Episode 4 of Boba Fett recovers big time.

It covers what seems to be the remaining flashback sequences so now the show can focus on the present.

It also recovers from some of the criticism that the show has gone soft and PG-13.

There is a scene where Boba remorselessly annihilates the entirety of the speederbike gang that murdered his Tuskan tribe with his Slave 1 ship and it is brutal.
Temura Morrison also plays it right, with a look of calm disdain and disgust as he eradicates these pests.

There is also a scene where Black Krrrsantan rips a trandoshan's arm off on screen, even if they didn't really put the whole action in frame.

This is again an episode of 40 something minutes lenght and the Mighty Morphin Moped Mafia are thankfully nowhere to be seen except for brief cameos in the flashback of how Boba found and saved Fennec Shand.


at the end of the episode, when they discuss having to prepare for war, Boba comments how he has credits but needs muscle, and when Shand says credits can buy you muscle if you know where to look and a musical stinf from the Mandalorian show plays, which is quite the cliffhanger for me.

As of now, I have some hope for the final 3 episodes, but I am affraid they might still be kind of rushed.

This kid at work who is into nerdy stuff made a deal with me, he'd watch a season of BTAS (hasn't seen it yet) in return I'd try to watch Peacemaker. I was only able to get half way through the first episode so far, and that was with a tiny bit of fastforwarding. The show is aggressively not funny. Not only that, but it's unfunny jokes feel like they go on forever. So far the only character who isn't an asshole is the fat black lesbian, who I'm pretty sure the show is trying to make you like because she's lgbt, but she's just as unfunny as the rest of them so I don't care about her either.

Haven't seen the show. HBO max isn't up here. How ever I've been re-watching Superman the animated series on a cartoon channel up here. Damn you Bizarro I nearly cried at that episode!!!

Finally sat down to watch the animated Hush movie, and WOW was that a giant pile of shit. Made worse by the fact that I could just feel while watching it that the assholes who made it thought they were really improving on the original story. Just awful.
