Yeah! The ship itself rules, even if I have the same question about where he is going to stack the bodies.

I'm sure they'll figure out something so all the nerds like us can calm down.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

Brilliant episode of a different show.

Sorry, and no worries.

I was only referring him to be the likes of a young cat.

There is the hollowed out Astromech port they so pointedly mentioned and showed us.  With a convenient dome over it as well so that an organic would not be exposed to space.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

Rewatched the episode and while still dissapointed not to see Boba, enjoyed it much more on rewatch as I just considered it a bonus but misplaced episode of mando lol

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

While this episode was good Star Wars content, it was not good for the Book of Boba Fett series. I do think there are some subtle hints that were dropped in the episode, from the Armorer specifically about the mythosaur and Mandalore. I think there is a very real possibility that Boba could end up with the dark saber and claim Mandalore for himself. I’m really hoping that happens. On the flip side, I just felt really upset and frustrated watching this episode, mainly because it’s a show about Boba Fett and a lot of fans, including myself, have been waiting for Fett to come back for a very long time. He finally gets his own show and then the 2nd longest episode of the series ends up being about a character who’s already had 2 full seasons dedicated to his character. It’s just frustrating. I have faith that Boba will get his moments in the last 2 episodes but it really would’ve been nice to see Boba in this episode.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

The I can't say that single episode has been solid, its been bits and pieces really that I've liked. Which I sort of expected.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

1-4 aren't terrible episodes. I think at their core, there is something there. It was poorly executed.

It's fascinating to see two characters walk down similar paths in life. There's a parallel. Boba and Din are both searching for identity. Taken similar careers. Same wheelhouse.

I would argue that Din's actions in this episode make Boba Fett more endearing.

It's cool we got another episode of The Mandalorian. Din regressed back to someone that literally takes heads for money. I'd argue that Din Djarin is approaching his lowest point. Hardly heroic. The first part of this episode was a hollow victory.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

To be completely honest, I'm equally frightened and excited for the next two episodes.

Half of me is scared they'll steal the spot out from Boba, from his own show, and show Djarin finding Grogu. WHICH WOULD NOT BE A BAD EPISODE, IF IT WAS IN THE RIGHT SERIES! Same thing with this most recent episode. It was good! But someone put it in the wrong series.

The other half of me is excited that they may just make an old legends storyline canon, in which Boba Fett becomes the Mandalore and ushers in the new dawn of the Mandalorians. Although this is a very speculative theory, and I could see many ways in which this would not make sense. But there are also many reasons for it to make sense.

Like, for instance, them making an entire episode of The Book of Boba Fett about Din Djarin, and not Boba Fett. If they're not setting up a plotline similar to what I stated, I don't see an excuse for it, nor for the many easter eggs (the new Mythosaur insignia, Mando being unable to handle the darksaber, etc). It would have served much better as Episode 1 of Season 3 of Mando. However, in an instance where it doesn't entirely make sense is the whole war with the pikes and Boba trying to become a crime lord. Why waste so much time on that plot if you're going to switch it up pre-finale?

Who knows, I could entirely be wrong and the series might prove itself with or without that speculation. Or it might bomb. Again, who knows?

I agree, I've watched a few more times and like it much more. I was just so hyped for more Boba that I was upset when he wasn't in it, but it's fine.

The series overall not as rad as I thought it would be, but I have still loved nearly every minute of it (I was fine with the mod crew's design but that chase had No speed to it, it was so slow). Any Boba Fett content is awesome constwnt IMO.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

I think this episode is being overrated simply because Din Djarin is popular. This is not Din at his best. He lacks focus. Watch that intro scene again, he didn’t plan to use the darksaber, he had to because he got his hand bitten when he went for his blaster, and then he ends up cutting his leg with the saber, has to bargain with the workers there because he knows he’d lose a fight where he is that outnumbered. He does all that so he can find the Armorer who is hiding with Paz, and Din gets medical treatment, another Mando history lesson, a gift for Grogu, some darksaber training that doesn’t work out, and a fight with Paz, voiced by the show’s writer Favreau, that was almost to the death (gee, wonder why Favreau didn’t kill him off) that ends with Din exiled from the clan. He then pays for a ship (that he also has to help fix) that he takes for a test run where he gets busted by the space cops again (a scene that seemed strangely unnecessary) before he takes Fennec’s offer, and says he will work for Boba for free (Mando will be poor by the end of this I guess). But there is where the episode really messed up. I get that Boba probably doesn’t want to leave the city and go to Mos Eisley because war might break out any moment but it would have been nice to see Boba actually meet Din at the end of the episode and have a brief conversation. Or is this The Book of Fennec Shand? Since she’s the only character to have dialogue in every episode. And no disrespect to Bryce Dallas Howard but this episode felt like it was more in service to her than Boba Fett fans – couldn’t help but notice after the episode aired I was seeing articles promoting her Star Wars future and rooting for her to do Star Wars movies – yeah, she’s great, but this episode was a disservice to Boba’s fans and I didn’t think it really did Mandalorian fans that much of a service to be honest because while they joke that it is Mandalorian 2.5, it really isn’t. Sure, scenes from this series will appear in Mandalorian season 3’s recap, but I don’t exactly see Mandalorian Season 2 as The Book of Boba Fett 0.5 because even if he was in half those episodes and the season ends promoting BoBF, he wasn’t the main focus, and it’s not his show. To make a funny comparison, this episode felt like I was watching one of those episodes of Sanford & Son that had no Fred Sanford in it at all. Even if the episode made me laugh I still saw it as a failure not to have the main character involved.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

This Boba Fett series should have been set in-between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. We'd be getting peak Boba.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5

I agree, this episode doesn’t make sense to me either. I also feel like Mando took over the Boba Fett’s show. This is the most boring episode I have ever watched.
