Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

Here's my working theory.  The last two episodes we just saw are, in reality,, two early episodes from the Mandalorian Season 3.  However, after episodes 3 and 4 of BOBF met with so much pushback, the brass panicked, yanked the next two episodes, filmed some additional scenes mentioning Boba Fett, added those scenes to the Mandalorian episodes and shoved them into BOBF to buy some time to do reshoots and edits on the series finale.  What we're going to get, come February 9th, will be an incredibly rushed pile of junk that raises more questions than it answers, and leaves us regretting renewing our Disney+ subscriptions. 

p.s.  RIP Garsa Fwip and her beautiful assistant.  They were one of the few redeeming qualities of this crapfest.  Nice work protecting the Sanctuary, Fett.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

This episode was better than last week. Instead of feeling like an episode of The Mandalorian this episode felt more like a straight up Star Wars show like The Clone Wars. Cad Bane’s appearance was amazing and I love his line about Boba Fett – “Boba Fett is a cold blooded killer who worked with the Empire” – I think there is some foreshadowing there, because that’s exactly how Luke Skywalker sees Boba Fett. Should be interesting to see them interact in the finale. I’m also pretty sure it was Cad Bane who killed the Tusken tribe that took in Fett. The Pykes hired Cad Bane to kill the Tuskens and frame the massacre so it looked like it was the Nikto bike gang instead. I can imagine Boba and Bane having a standoff - and then there’s Black Krrsantan – will Cad Bane try to convince BK to join the Syndicate? Or will BK remember Boba’s advice about not working for the wrong people?

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

People really need to stop parroting the "The show is a BOOK! Books have entire chapters that don't even follow the main character!" argument. What kind of book completely drops its storyline and forgets about its main characters for a third of its length, includes a bunch of senseless drivel that has completely nothing to do with the book (ex. Peli and her Jawa love life) and doesn't include the titular character in the penultimate chapter?

Episode 6 The Book of Boba Fett
*Announcer voice*
Recap: Last time on the Madalorian Season 3

Throw in extra characters for fun, tease Cobb Vanth, Ahsoka and Cad Bane fans.

End of show
Coming soon: The "New Adventures of Luke Skywalker and Grogu!"


Boba Fett: Less than 1 minute of screen time, no dialogue.  Hope TM getting paid a flat rate and not per time/episode or by line...

I must say, they have greatly polished young Luke Skywalker compared to the reveal in Mandalorian.  I thought it was pretty good as far as the digital overlay went, other than a few minor mouth movements and some dead digital eyes.

I think Luke was a little mean and condescending to the little guy.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read this quote.  They're not wrong.

"Blink and you'll miss it, but The Book of Boba Fett features a massive surprise cameo from The Empire Strikes Back bounty hunter, Boba Fett. The character can be briefly glimpsed shortly after Din Djarin returns to Tatooine, standing by a holographic map with Fennec Shand."

That pretty much summed up his appearance in this episode.  As someone else mentioned, you see more of Boba in the opening "Recaps" than you do in the episode.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

I see a lot of folks mentioning about a big western showdown with Boba Fett and Cad Bane.  But, I'm expecting the next episode to have a mini-flashback, when Fett sees Bane again, that shows their "un-aired" Clone Wars episode showdown.  The one where Boba gets the dent in his helmet and Bane gets that metal plate in his head that we saw in Bad Batch.  This time, I'm expecting Boba to just straight up have his rancor eat Bane.  That would be altogether fitting.

Did Grogu say “dank farrik” when he got shot by the remote droid?

I'm also sick of hearing this. And actually, I have read books like this, which leave the main character for a while and guess what - they were pretty hard to follow/bad/annoying to read. I understand story telling and word building but how come random characters didn't totally take over episodes of mando? They had cameos sure and they were great but they didn't just do their own thing for the whole episode. Bobf, I really was so looking forward to it, but it was definitely marketed wrong. I only just read its being referred to as mando season 2.5 by execs? If I had seen that when the trailers came out etc it wouldn't have been so jarring. Its like watching two different shows. Omg I would have been so happy for mando to see boba when that star ship was being built, go talk to him about his armour, what jango was like. That would have been so much better than a pretty but pointless space ship building montage.

I agree.  I wonder if people who keep telling others they don't understand storytelling really understand it themselves.  Good storytelling is staying with your narrative and moving your story forward.  The main story was only "moved forward" in the last minute or two of Episode 5, when Fennec asked Djarin to help.  It was barely moved forward in Episode 6.  The only story elements related to the main story were the Pykes in Mos Pelgo territory, everyone showing up for the mission briefing, and the Mos Pelgo scenes at the end.  Everything else didn't move the Boba Fett story forward, at all.  It only moved Din Djarin's story forward.  That could be done in his own series.  While the episodes were both extremely awesome, we didn't need to see that much of Din's story in order to move the Tatooine and Boba's story forward.  The only reason to have all that in there was just as a fan service.  In the Mandalorian, Boba was a secondary character in the episodes he showed up in.  Djarin always took the lead as main character in those stories.  Boba was just along for the ride to help in a supporting role.  In Book of Boba Fett, "good storytelling" would've had those roles reversed.  After the briefing, they should have had both Fett and Djarin go to Mos Pelgo.  Fett could've taken the lead, and Djarin could've been the supporting character, introducing him to the Marshal, and they both could've made their case with him.  The look of the townsfolk seeing Boba wearing the "Marshal's armor" would've been worth it alone.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

And whenever he's not on screen everyone should be asking "Where's Boba?"
I want to talk about the elephant (or Bantha) in the room which is the uncanny valley Luke we have. I'm a huge Peter Cushing fan and what they did in Rogue One (though okayed with the estate) I felt was morally just in poor taste. I don't believe what they are doing by de-aging is ethical b/c it brings into the question the need or use for new actors at all & that is dangerous. Star Wars & Disney have taken this to the next level & it is getting disturbing the amount that is being using for sake of pumping people's nostalgia hearts.
    Not to mention the general hijacking of the show...what really is being brought up is the issue of pleasing too many people. But I, like many others am questioning why is Grogu & Luke are in a show about Boba Fett...
    What I did appreciate about aspects of the show was Bane's appearance and having the tone in that regard which harkens back to Boba's roots as a gunslinger himself..just disappointing once again to not have the character that inspired these other characters (Cobb/Cad) nowhere on screen. What I did like as someone had said early was a possible foreshadowing from Bane's mouth (wouldn't it be nice if there was a pay off) of what Boba Fett originally was...or has been this whole time? Maybe Boba had been playing dummy the whole time...and was twisting and manipulating his position of power playing possum, looking helpless while building his army, biding his time. But I'm afraid..that is not the case.
              Another idea I thought would be cool was he learned respect and discipline from the raiders but he realizes that has never worked in the world that he inhabits so he has to become the unbridled ruffian we saw, wailing on stormtroopers becoming once again the "cold-blooded killer" Bane warns them of....sadly that might be a story of fan fiction much like Star Wars is now...

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

Exactly Drix and Sadriel_Fett! They could've easily incorporated Boba Fett into those scenes, but instead they turn him into the cameo of his own show. I sighed relief when Din finally arrived at the palace hangar, thinking the story was finally picking up again, but groaned when he went to recruit Cobb on his own. They should've never built Din a new ship so Boba could at least be a glorified taxi driver like season 2 :P

And yes I know Twitter and Reddit are terrible representations of the Star Wars fandom, but it's just appalling to see the number of people who say "WHO CARES ABOUT THE TITLE, I'M HERE FOR THE GOOD CONTENT!", while fans who wanted to see Boba in his OWN show are instantly labelled as "irrational haters" or "impatient". Yep, god forbid people wanting to see the titular character get some development.. it's almost as if that's how a title works. Sucks that the positive reception to these past 2 episodes will probably normalize this kind of ridiculous storytelling for future Lucasfilm projects. Deceptive marketing at best, poor writing at worst.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

Overall Mando season 2.5 is going well. Sure did think we might see more of that guy Boba Fett but who knows. 

Such a letdown after waiting so long to see my favorite Star Wars character. My son said during his episode “Dad Boba Fett really sucks why do you like him?  Sad

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6

This is a interesting episode focusing mainly on nature with Luke Skywalker training Grogu, but I wish Boba Fett shows up longer in this episode.
