Well I Finally Got to This Week’s Episode of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

Every week I watch the latest episode of the latest Marvel or Star Wars Disney+ series at 3am but unfortunately yesterday, well, I fell asleep. I fell asleep hard. So I didn’t get around to a second viewing until today but when I did I liked what I watched.

I’m going to first announce that yes, this was my favorite episode so far. Whereas Chapter 2 was better but still had some personal kinks to iron out I found this particular episode delightful on so many levels.

The usage of droids in the episode was hilarious, the action finally felt fun to look at, and heck yeah, Boba’s ship came to play.

It felt like this episode made Boba Fett awesome again. There were moments when I was cheering with excitement and others when I was simply appreciating what I was seeing.

‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Is Better This Week (Thankfully)

Last week’s episode had me really peeved and this week’s episode had me annoyed in some ways too but still…it did its thing. Was I expecting this show to be the flashback express? No, I wasn’t, but that’s what it’s become. Is this a good thing? Yes and no.

On one hand, it’s great because we get to spend more time with the Tusken Raiders who have undoubtedly stolen the show. I may not know the name of the female Raider but she has become one of my favorite female characters in the entire franchise. Her presence is just so awesome and if anything happens to her I’m going to be very upset.

And then on the other hand, the flashbacks are distracting as heck!

(SPOILERS AHEAD!)

Two twin Hutts just showed up and I think we just saw Tarful! I want to get back to that. But no. Instead, we have to become aware of why Boba showed up in The Mandalorian looking all rad with a cool outfit and stick that he knew how to use very well. Ugh.

And is it just me or does there seem like there’s something awfully cheap about this show? I may have said this last week but it’s becoming more apparent with each episode.

Like the two humans in the bar. Their clothes looked…okay but they felt like two cosplayers instead of actual Star Wars characters. And that’s ultimately been the problem. The acting (and costumes) has felt so stunted that it just sucks me out of the story sometimes.

Oh, and we went to the Twi’lek bar last week. Did we really have to go back there so we could see the pretty Twi’leks again? It just felt repetitive and it makes the city feel small.

All in all, I’m still not even close to being a fan of this show but at least it was better than last week.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Drops Tomorrow and I’m Excited

First off, because I’ve been off of here for a while, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Secondly, The Book of Boba Fett drops tomorrow. Am I as excited for it as I will be for the third season of The Mandalorian? Definitely not, but I am intrigued as to why we’re even getting this spinoff in the first place and how it will connect to the grander story that is Star Wars. (Because every story in this franchise eventually connects to one of the movies or other Dave Filoni-helmed shows in some capacity.)

The trailers and tv spots have been intriguing enough as it is. There will be action, there will be new characters, and plenty of underworld criminals. Am I expecting characters like Omega, Qi’ra, or Cad Bane to show up? No, because then I’ll be disappointed if they don’t show up. Instead, I’m ready to just follow along for the ride, and hopefully, it’s just as good as the sixth episode (“The Tragedy”) of the second season of The Mandalorian. If so, I’m going to be losing my mind for seven weeks.

Either way, the long-awaited Boba Fett standalone story is finally here.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

My Thoughts About Disney+ Day

Well, Disney+ Day was fun and a bit disappointing. We got plenty of exciting announcements for the streaming service with series and original films set to drop through 2023. Marvel Studios did their thing and gave us a bunch of tantalizing new looks at their upcoming series like Hawkeye (which basically gave us a whole clip and it was FANTASTIC) as well as exclusive sneak peeks for Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Secret Invasion.

We also got some confirmed and brand-new MCU series to look forward to like:

INQUISITOR SIGHTING!

The level of excitement I’m feeling right now. I’ve wanted this for years and now…now it’s happening! Obi-Wan Kenobi has always been one of my favorite Star Wars characters and for him to finally get his long-awaited return is just…

Yeah, I’m teary-eyed just thinking about how happy this show is going to make me.
