I have always been a Star Wars fan and have seen every movie good or bad on the day of its release. This includes the Original three all the way up through to these Disney streaming shows. Good or bad I have seen them and some I don’t care to see again because they suck droid parts.
Boba Fett Played by Temeura Morrison and Fennec Shand played by Ming-Na Wen. This post is my take on Book of Boba Fett Episode Chapter One.
Boba Fett and Fennec Shand are on the planet of Tattoine and are in a city known as Mos Espa. Tatooine is the same planet the original Star Wars movie began with, except when Luke, Ben Kenoevie, and the droids go to the city for a pilot that city is Mos Eisley.
Boba and Fennec begin the task of seizing control of Tatooine and assuming Jabba the Hutt role as a crime lord. Here is where my problem with this show begins because the brutal nature shown by Boba in the Mandalorian series has quickly faded away. We are now getting a mainstream watered PC version Boba, he wants to run this city but everyone is just blowing him off. I also like the character of Fennec but just don’t buy into the right-hand bad-ass woman type, she just does not carry it well. Keep in mind they are building a crime syndicate and it comes off more of a Sunday afternoon nap fest. The characters are bland and boring and the dialog at times is pretty hard to get through at times.
Even with my criticisms, I enjoy watching the show but unlike Mandorlian have no desire to go back and watch them again. “Disney” is forgetting that they are now using an established “badass” character and they are making it boring. With Mando, it is a brand new character so you don’t have to worry about having him compared to movies or comic versions of him. Boba is a badass Bounty hunter that is feared across the Star Wars universe but what we are getting is far from that.
Chapter 1: CHAPTER 1: STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND: It was good, not great. Boba just seems like a pussy, because he wants to take over Jabba the Hut position but can not order anyone around and when they basically just blow him off he lets it go.
The flashbacks are cool because we are learning a lot more about the sand people and they are indeed intelligent and tribal. I’m enjoying the show for the most part but they really need to edge this up because Boba is becoming boring as hell. He is not tough or the kick-ass character we all assumed he was. The landscape and CG work looks fantastic but the story is very blah with moments of oh that was cool!
Chapter Two: Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine: This story is turning into a mess, Boba has no forces to speak of and still has not obtained any power over any part of the city. They introduced and new Wookiee Black KKrasantan and man he does looks cool. He is a character from the comics that have actually worked for Darth Vader and fought Obi-Wan Kenobi.
A mayor tries to have him killed but Boba just turns his back to him and goes to walk out? Watch over his right shoulder… so does his bodyguard after they both just watched them shoot and kill the assassin. I might add one that only worked for Jabba the Hutt yet Boba did not know who this guy or group was.
Chapter Three: The Streets of Mos Espa: OH this is getting bad! I’m a lifelong Star Wars fan and always liked Boba Fett. (not my favorite character but still liked him) This series is turning into a stupid mess that makes no sense. They are taking a cool character a slowing destroying it. I was hoping for more but it’s becoming pretty clear that soon we’ll need one big a** plunger to fix this mess.
Someone should get fired for approving those speeders and for the speeder chase sequence. The Turtle Waxed Up Cyber-Punk Power Rangers are gawd awful and are about as threatening as dish soap.
It was really difficult getting through this one. It took one episode and they took a really cool character Black KKrsantan (The Wookie) and gave him one of the worse fight scenes I have seen in Star Wars.
It amazes me how Boba was badass in Mandalorian but now he gets ignored, blown off, and outright insulted but just stands there and takes it. – “What happened did your balls drop off?” – Joker 2008
Episode 4: The show is garbage that is getting close to turning into a dumpster fire! The flow and storytelling are horrible and the dialog is absolute horse crap. This episode was one of the laziest ones yet. This turd is circling the bowl and if they are not careful it will get too big to flush.
Chapter 4 The Gathering Storm: Someone please force choke this mess and make it stop!
They have a mouse budget but are getting shown up by 99% of the cosplay artists out there today! The ModTech shop sequence “special effects” looks like someone went shopping at Radio Shack and went straight to the clearance aisle! 🤢 These are cybernetic parts being installed in this woman NOT automotive jumper cables and fish tank parts. The “doctor’s” arm looked like a really bad cosplay costume.
Added point: I had no issue with the Mod Palor scene my issue was with how it was done… It all looked like low-grade cosplay which includes the Radio Shack-built Inspector Dr. Gadet tool-hand!
Fennec has her whole abdomen shot out with a blaster and then gets it rebuilt. (Aka which requires: Cyborg VaderLuke Parts) Once he puts her back together, the final touch was electro-soldiering a twisted pair of red COPPER CLAD ELECTRICAL wires together….!?!… Really ….!… for cybernetic organs/hardware?
These are just lazy bottom-of-the-barrel special effects. People on Instagram keep saying cyber-punk, to say that is an insult to cyberpunk. If it was 1/2 that good I would have no problem with it.
Using The Slave 1 to look into the pit and search for his armor was moronic. The “colors” leather jackets on the speeder gang were cheesy as hell. This run down to pay them back for the sand people slaughter was boring and lacked any imagination. Flies in, shoot them up, and leaves. … really that’s it!?!
The bar fight science is yet another rehash of an old Star War well-known comment about Wookies ripping arms out of their socket. TRY something new for Christ’s sake, because this whole science is set up just to see a guy get his arm ripped off.
Oh good lord ….. who wrote this mess!!!!
Episode 5: Wednesday, Jan. 26 Return of the Mandalorian AMAZING episode please trash Boba Fett and please give us back the Mandorlaian. Amazing tech and some new environments it was awesome. Already watching it a 3rd time. This reminds me why I like Star Wars.
Episode 6: Wednesday, Feb. 2
They are tying the Star Wars universe together (that includes even the video games) but building new stories and story lines. They clearly are binding things together but are building to something different.
The Luke CGI is so much better and I am happy with this episode. They are using Book of Boba Fett to explain smaller story parts now instead of taking up space (pun intended) in Mandalorin season three.
I personally think Grogu is already a Jedi and Luke hints to it. (Or Jedi equal like Ahsoka)
A great episode that makes me eager to see the season ending episode.
Having fun again with Star Wars #starwarsfan
Episode 7: Wednesday, Feb. 9 Well back to stupid episodes and I had a hard time sitting through this one without wanted to skip forward. This mess was all over the place and looked like someone clipped a bunch of b-movie fight scenes together. Two extremely power “Terminex” have aim that only a storm trooper would be proud of. The structure of this episode was pretty bad. I would not be disappointed if they stopped doing this show. 5 and 6 where the only good episodes of the season.
