Filoni has a proven track record of taking characters we know little about, and blending them with new characters and characters we are VERY familiar with to tell interesting stories. And I can definitely see even just from the trailers that we are getting something fresh here - this isn’t Boba Fett just doing bounty hunter stuff, he’s a crime lord in this which takes him in a new direction. Filoni has done some criminal syndicate stories before in The Clone Wars, and it was GREAT content.

I love how they are using bacta tank dreams for flashbacks, can definitely see that continuing throughout the series with flashbacks from all kinds of eras. That quick shot of Kamino looked great, I hope we see more.

The story in the present time is starting off strong - there’s a lot of places they can take this. Obviously the mayor is going to be a problem. He might be bold because he’s backed by other criminal syndicates off world. Maybe the Black Sun, Crimson Dawn, or the Pikes? Also the Twilek running that cantina was obviously in on the hit that happened in the streets - loading up their helmets with credits so they wouldn’t be able to use…

My one potential nitpick issue is that this seems tonally VERY similar to The Mandalorian. I’m sure there’s a specific story they want to tell, but I hope Fett is more of a conflicted antihero in those vs a guy with a dark past who turns good because of his moral code - I feel like this show (and the lead characters) need to be differentiated more, especially seeing that I expect Mandalorian to continue without Grogu as a main character (I don’t expect to see Z Grogu again until the series finale). But I’m excited about watching this show!

The theme song isnt as good as Mando but its pretty damn good and a hard act to follow. I think tonally its supposed to be the same as its one entire story. Regardless I don’t mind it. Im sure when we get Andor and Obi Wan those will feel different but this is part of Fav and Filioni’s story so I anticipated the same tone for this, Ahsoka and whatever replaces the Gina show.

I think thats where they're going with the show, but I do wonder if his need to be in the bacta tank will continue. For now it looks like he needs it to get back to 100 but I hope it's not a "he needs the Bacta Tank to stay alive." cause that would suck.

I'm sure we'll see other syndicates but If I remember correctly by the time of this series most of them had been wiped out or power wasn't a quarter of what it was during the Clone Wars, with the exception of the Pikes.

Jennifer Beals Twilek is def in on it, my guess is the Mayor and a like are testing the new leadership of Fett. But it makes me curious, how in the hell did Bib Fortuna keep things going after Jabba's death if they came at Bobba this way.

I think the tone is the way it is because we're seeing characters that live on the Outer Rim on of the SW Universe, so it's more of a wild west kinda vibe with things. I don't think we'll get a conflicted anti-hero vibe, Fett seems to know who he is and what he wants. He's just trying to do it his way and not like the previous people whom we obviously know how ruling by fear turned out for them.

I could be wrong but either way...

In response to Reply # 8


  

          

Qi’ra from Solo has popped up in comics as bringing back Crimson Dawn. That may have been pre-Endor (ROTJ) but that’s not long before this time period so I do believe that Crimson Dawn is back in some kind of way.

>I'm sure we'll see other syndicates but If I remember correctly by the time of this series >most of them had been wiped out or power wasn't a quarter of what it was during the Clone >Wars, with the exception of the Pikes.

>But it makes me curious, how in the hell did Bib Fortuna keep things going after Jabba's >death if they came at Bobba this way.

To your point, I think we’ll find out that Bib didn’t really keep things going, and that Jabba’s empire is pretty run down at this point such that Boba also doesn’t have much power. I’m that one Mando post-credit scene he took Bib out QUICK. The palace itself seems pretty abandoned. So I’d guess the story of this season will be him building the “family” back up.

When I mentioned “conflicted anti-hero” I meant that he’s clearly not ruthless evil, and from the little we saw in this episode I can see some tough decisions having to get made in balancing doing things his way vs. the ruthless way things had been done. He got caught slipping multiple times just in this episode from not taking Fennec Shands advise on how he needs to handle things. I definitely see some conflict happening during the season with him trying to be a “respectful” crime lord in a business where respect is seen as weakness.

Watch Mandalorian if you want to see all of the Boba back story, he really comes in for a few episodes in Season 2.

14. "am i the only one who was underwhelmed?"
In response to Reply # 0


          

maybe my expectations were heightened by my experiences with The Mandalorian..

Something about the script felt clunky.

Boba is a lot less ruthless than I thought he would be. I get it.. he has principles and wants to rule with respect.. but then why be a crimelord? To be a weak one? Doesn't make sense. He's a survivor, so why doesn't he have a plan to survive as the new boss in town? He is like the Anti-Tony Montana.

I hate when Star Wars "aliens" speak modern English with terrestrial colloquial accents. It's seems lazy in comparison to the levels of detail they used to go into when making the original trilogy.


Those "ninjas" looked hella dumb. That monster with the 20-pack and 4 arms looked like some watered down Tokusatsu..like somebody you would see fighting the Power Rangers. Not Star Wars.

I love Boba Fett though and I'm a Temuera Morrison fan since Once Were Warriors. Also a Ming Na Wen fan since Joy Luck Club. Obviously a Mandalorian/Favreau fan. I see that the ep was directed by the infamous Robert Rodriguez.. who I consider to be legendary; however, LOTS of his directorial choices over the years are super questionable.
Not sure I want him in the Star Wars universe tbh

POSITIVES:
- Morrison/Ming Na Wen
- Boba Fett getting his story told
- Theme song is dope
- Still a lot of potential to be good
- The vibe is not exactly like Mandalorian (spaghetti western).. It's a little of that, but I'm getting more of a Sinbad the Sailor/Clash of The Titans vibe for some reason

His refusal to torture the 2 Gomorrean guards worked out in his favor. I'm assuming it's going to be a case of people mistaking his kindness for weakness. That when he claps back its some medieval shit. I don't think he's on some Stringer bell try to reform the game shit. Boba's been around too long to not know the nature of the world he's dealing with. then again, he's never been top dog. not sure he's comfortable with it

I kinda share your underwhelmed sentiment even though i still really enjoyed it. my expectations for this are through the roof

We know the planet, we know the gangsters, we know Boba, we know too much...so the series has to focus on characters, and right now, the central character is flat. The flashbacks are too convenient, and take away from the plot.

After the first episode lol

They established a lot. They fan serviced a lot. They laid the groundwork a lot. All in 30+ mims. Shit was well done…for a first episode that is essentially a small piece to the Favreau/Filoni universe that is Mando/Rebels. If you are watching this as a new show and this is a pilot sure your critique holds weight, but this is not that scenario. Not even a little bit.

So I dug it, even though it was out of place looking.

Pretty much agree with everything else. This version of Boba Fett seems like a hard character to base a show around, but maybe they have some tricks up their sleeve.

Was it just me or was the cinematography and overall production design not to the level of the Mandolorian? I remember that just being a really cool show to look at, above all.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

In this premier episode they needed to do a couple things - first to establish how he escaped the sarlacc to get to where he was in Mando season 2, and second to establish what he’s doing now after Mando season 2.

You’re right about the unanswered question - WHY does he want to be a crime lord? After a life as a bounty hunter in which he was a total freelancer, why take on the responsibility and threat of running a criminal empire? There’s definitely got to be a reason. Again, I trust that Filoni/Favreau have that covered in the story they want to tell.

At this point there’s plenty of evidence in how Filoni builds stories up. Mando season 1 episode 1 was VERY similar to this episode, with the exception of the Grogu reveal at the end of that episode - and with Mando a hook was needed because with him being a completely new character without that reveal telling us what the season would be about, it felt like some guys playing around with Star Wars action figures and giving them new character names. Book of Boba will definitely have a full story to tell.

Boba Fett is a badass character, so the ceiling for this is high. I doubt it reaches Mandalorian levels, but it could be good. I just wonder how he stays a protagonist as a crime lord??? Even an anti-hero is a bit of a stretch. We’ll see.

The B-Story of the Skywalker Saga is really the family tormenting the native people of Tatooine.

Black Krrsantan plus Tosche Station. And done in a perfect way where if you didn't know who/what they were it wouldn't matter at all.

I love where both parts of the story are going.

In a universe as big as Star Wars with so many films, live and animated TV shows, books, comics, and video games all being large of a huge canon it’s wonderful to see little connections like this where you don’t need to know the background specifics, but for those who know they get that little reward.

It would be annoying if they made it where you had to read all the comics and books to know what’s happening, but to your point even if you don’t know who that character was you can see he’s an intimidating Wookiee, and from his glare towards Boba there’s a hint at some prior history between them. No need to know any more than that.

i dont know any of the 'extra Star Wars stuff' thats out there, i only know all of the movies (honestly 'Rogue One' might be my favorite Movie of them all), "The Mandalorian" & "The Bad Batch" LOVE both of these shows more than most of the movies.

Other than that, im clueless, but it didnt affect my enjoyment of this episode at all....when i saw that big dark Wookie step out and give that glare, i hollered out load! (and rewound and rewatched multiple times, just cuz it was so cool). Yeah, even without any actual specific knowledge of exactly who/what/why he was, i still 'got' all i needed to 'wow' me and fully enjoy this episode. And am hoping (pretty sure) we'll get more of him later in the season of this show or others...agreed, well done indeed!

38. "Rogue One is my favorite individual movie by FAR..."
In response to Reply # 37


  

          

>(honestly 'Rogue One'
>might be my favorite Movie of them all),

And I'm a huge Star Wars fan who finds something to love about all the movies. But if I'm picking one individual movie? Definitely Rogue One. You'll have people say that it's Empire Strikes Back, but Empire on it's own is incomplete. It's great because of where it fits in the OT, the challenges that came up and where they went. You'll have people say it's A New Hope, but when rewatching, the dialogue is cringy, and there's not a lot of meat to the story itself. It's great because of all of the innovations in making it and the fact that it launched this entire universe.

But if I'm judging one individual film? Rogue One managed to introduce a full cast of new characters, gave us enough character development for us to fall in love with all of them for different reasons, gave all of them wonderfully tragic individual death scenes, added to the overall ST lore and worldbuilding, gave us the best space battle in all of Star Wars, and gave us by FAR the best closing scene ever in a Star Wars movie. Even the music is COMPLETELY underrated - Michael Giacchino did heavy work on new themes that fit perfectly in the SW universe and tied right into the OT.

And this isn't a thing where I reevaluated it years later, I loved Rogue One on first watch. At one point when it was in the theaters I was literally going to see it 3-4 times a week, sneaking out of work early and catching late afternoon showings in nearly empty theaters. I love that movie.

The place where Boba Fett beat up the aliens and stole the bikes was Tosche Station (where Luke wanted to go to pick up the power converters). In a deleted scene from the first Star Wars, they show Luke going there at the very beginning of the movie tp hang out. The two humans who were being bullied by the bikers were the grown up versions of two of Luke's friends from Tattooine.

The evil Wookie with the Hutt twins was Black Krrsantan. He's a bounty hunter they introduced in the Star Wars comic books that launched around the same time as Force Awakens. There was a Vader comic book where they introduced him, Dr. Aphra (an amoral archeologist who helps Vader), and essentially evil version of C3PO and R2D2. The characters were so popular that they've hung around until now.

I did have to roll my eyes at that part. When they showed them in the previous episode and I saw they had cuts on, I was like "C'mon Dave, why do we need a SW version of Biker Mice from Mars?"

Much, much better than the first episode. This is the good side of Robert Rodriguez.

Okay.. I like the direction of this show. Still kinda wishing Boba was a little more ruthless, but I'm learning to let go of that expectation. He's honorable. I can dig it.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

Raw thoughts after just watching, spoilers below...






























I love how the stories are coming together with the Pikes being involved in both the past and the present. Speaking of the past, my guess is that it wasn't the swoop gang who killed the Tuskens, but the Pike Syndicate did it and set it up to look like it was the swoop gang. The Pikes ain't going that easily after having their train hit. The dude Fett went to negotiate with obviously knew about what was happening to the Tuskens while he was gone. Plus the swoop gang was just a little group of thugs, no way they'd be able to catch the Tusken village sleeping like that. Heart strings were getting pulled when Boba laid the kid's gaffi stick on the fire...notice we didn't see a body of the warrior though, she's definitely still alive at this point.

Then in the present you have the Pikes showing up to take over Tatooine...Black Krrsantan fight (my guess is that at some point he comes back to save Boba). Nice quick cameo shot in Mos Eisley of Amy Sedaris's character from Mando and her pit droids. Danny Trejo with the Rancor (I definitely wouldn't trust him if I was Boba...that could be the Hutt twins second attempt at assassination with that "gift")

My only issue with this episode was that speeder chase...it went on too long for as low budget as it looked. I understand that every action sequence in a TV show is not gonna be theater level quality, but to that point there was no reason to have that chase go on that long, because it drew attention to the action being low budget.

The car chase on the 40's style Vespas could have been better if their bikes and the car moved faster. It shouldve been more like the opening scene in SOLO. The pace of it was odd but maybe due to their choice in vehicles for the Top Boy Cyber Punk crew (I like them tho). I think Trejo is fine and his character is exactly who he is.

ARE WE GOIN TO SEE BOBA RIDE A FUCKING RANCOR?!?!?

I'm guessing Rodriguez and Favreau were going for a tribute to the car chases of old, but it didn't work. I'm sorry, I thought of Wayne's World 2 when they drove through a portrait of Jabba the Hutt that just happened to be crossing the street.

Rest of it was really good though. Especially the stuff with the Rancor. Boba riding one is going to be bad-ass.

The ending with crashing into the barrel of fruit, the alley cuts, the chasers jumping a ramp to land on the car, etc...even the very beginning of the chase with dude locking the door to slow them down and then leaving out the back door...

Plus with the chase being so slow...I was waiting for something to completely go against expectations like having the mayor's assistant get killed by someone random during the chase.

Kinda feeling the Tatooine hipster gang. Those Vespas gotta be the brightest, most colorful things on that planet since R2D2 and C3PO.

Was nice to see Young Nat from (the) Yellowjackets as the leader of the hipster crew.

Also really good to see Machete. Robert Rodriguez earns plus points for that one.

inspired, specifically from American Graffiti which had races with bright cars from the '60s era...also those characters seemed like they'd fit in in prequel era Coruscant like that cantina Kenobi and Anakin went to in Attack of the Clones...

But yeah - they could have done a much better job on editing that chase scene to make it tighter and not feel so slow...

They always pack action into this show but it still feels like a slow burn. I was foolishly expecting something closer to a Boardwalk Empire.

Highlights for me this week include the random Thundercat cameo and the hunt for his suit.

so I didn't notice the CGI issues in this episode. There have definitely been issues throughout the series though, so I'm not surprised.

I thought this episode was great. The one issue I have is the pacing...the spent a LOT of time in the flashback timeline that didn't give us any new information. We already knew how he found Fennec and saved her after she was left for dead in Mando, already knew that she had droid parts put in her to save her life, already knew that he'd gotten the Slave 1 back and that he'd killed Bib, etc., but it was all paced kinda slow as if this was new information.

That being said, there were little nuggets throughout that are likely important going forward...Fennec mentioned that there's no way the biker gang wiped out a Tusken tribe on their own. I definitely think the Pykes set that up. It was DOPE seeing Boba take them out with the Slave 1...also great to see the sarlacc get killed by a seismic charge.

Fennec also mentioned that he still needed healing on the inside - I think this entire season is about Boba figuring out who he is - post Jango Fett's son, post bounty hunter career, post near death experience in the Sarlacc, post member of a Tusken tribe, etc. They had a good conversation on why he wanted to be a daimyo - though I still think he has additional motivation. We're also seeing more on how he's "ruling with respect" - he could have made Black Krrsantan his slave based on the gift from the Hutt twins, but he let him go, later went to find him and then hired him legitimately. (How dope was the scene with BK taking on the Trandoshans? Given the history of Wookie/Trandoshan relationships he was likely hunted and made a slave by Trandoshans so the beef definitely makes sense.) Also the Godfather scene with him and the other families was handled completely respectfully = it will be interesting to see how that playes out. Fennec for the third time in this episode played the role of the audience, asking him if he could trust those criminals...

At the end of the episode when they talked about hiring muscle, did y'all notice that the music went to the Mandalorian theme? Would be great to see him in this...maybe get a bit of insight on what's coming on Mando season 3...

They had some amazing shots in this episode. Was that a Dyson ring that they were trying to show or just some big ass ring station?

They got an episode with the slowest car chase in entertainment history, and then in this episode come with a Naboo starfighter streaking through Beggar's Canyon and then straight into space to do a buzz by on a commercial liner???

62. "I loved that from a character development standpoint. "
In response to Reply # 61


  

          

Over the first two seasons of his show, Mando moved from being an individualistic bounty hunter to having a purpose because of Grogu. After season two - he’s not only lost his purpose, he’s lost his moral compass. So from a character development standpoint he’s LITERALLY right back to season 1, episode 1 with his “take you in warm or take you in cold” line, and him brutally decapitating someone. (Remember him using the door to cut a dude in half in the Mando premier?)

Then, not only has he lost his purpose and moral compass, but he’s lost his only remaining identity and “family” after admitting that he’d revealed his face to someone. At this point he has the Armorer and Paz Vizla gunning after him (both for the dark saber AND his Beskar since I’m sure she doesn’t view him as worthy of it as no longer a true Mandalorian). AND he has Bo Katan ready to come after him for the dark saber (he also owes her, he was supposed to help her retake Mandalore after the save Grogu mission).

That’s why he jumped at the chance to help Boba Fett. We’re in for an incredible ride.

Do you think he helps out Boba before leaving or he takes off and this is a set up for season 3?

I think he visits Grogu to check in on him and then comes back to Tatooine to help Boba, with season 3 of Mando being about his struggle with other Mandalorians (both the Death Watch remnant with the Armorer/Vizla and Bo Katan's group.)

Also I don't think the Grogu visit even happens on screen in Book of Boba Fett. There's two episodes left in this show, and we still need to see Boba Fett pull together his team and have the war with the Pikes, and resolve the situation in Mos Espa.

My guess is the next episode opens with Mando's return to Tatooine to join up with Boba along with maybe others who are helping (maybe Bossk? Would be cool to see Black Krrsantan and Bossk have to work together through some Wookie/Trandoshan beef.

I think the Pykes hire their own bounties like Cad Bane, Bossk, and others to go up against Boba and his team. I would be surprised to see those 2 fight alongside Boba.

65. "FINALLY!...give Bryce Dallas Howard ALL the eps...."
In response to Reply # 0


          

...gotta be honest, up to this point, ive felt the Direction in the Boba eps has been 'uneven', mostly lacking in dynamics, intrigue and 'fun'...imo it hasnt been the writing or the plot-lines that have been lacking, ive personally felt its the Direction thats been the issue...meaning HOW the story is being presented, not the story itself....

so far, until now, ONLY episode 2 gave me any significant 'wow' feelings....the others not so much.

Enter the talented Bryce Dallas Howard.
From start to finish, THIS LATEST episode (5) was FUN, COOL, EXCITING....and no, its not just because you-know-who is in it, but its because of HOW the story was told...all of the CHOICES the Director made here are what made this such a satisfying episode.

(as a side note, some of my favorite episodes of the previous live action Star Wars series were also Directed by Mz Howard)....so, with that i say...give Bryce ANYthing she wants to direct in this universe... please.

66. "Absolutely the best Directed episode so far. "
In response to Reply # 65


  

          

I'll say this though - she had an advantage (besides Mando) that the other directors didn't have. In episodes 1 through 4 we had the storytelling split between the present day story of Boba as a crime lord and the flashbacks. I think that was a great idea using the flashbacks to bring that together, but it feels a bit like Favreau had that idea, but each director handled that split storytelling a bit differently (he's been the writer for every episode, but hasn't directed any.)

Bryce was free to just direct the story without having to split time. That in addition to your great points on choices she made really made this the best episode so far. An example I'll mention is the Mando/Vizla fight...that was a difficult thing to pull off. She had to direct that showing that Mando wasn't in full control of the dark saber - struggling against its "weight", but he needed to ultimately win that fight. All while battling on a rail-less walkway with space behind them. That was beautifully done. I also mentioned up above how well done the sequence was in the N-1 Starfighter - that thing looks better on this TV show than we ever saw them look in the prequels. You could FEEL how fast it was going...
