My Thoughts on The Book of Boba Fett

I have been a fan of Star Wars for as long as I can remember, and I will probably always be a fan of Star Wars. That said, I don’t instantly like everything released that is Star Wars. There’s been quite a bit said about The Book of Boba Fett, and I agree with most of what’s been said. For the most part, I was entertained yet disappointed by it. I guess I was less disappointed by what it was and more disappointed by what it wasn’t.

I’m going to go into spoiler territory here, so if you haven’t seen it yet, and you care, then maybe stop ready.

I’m not going to retread a lot of the faults of the show that have been talked about by everyone on the Internet. But something that really bugs me is that they keep talking about going to “war” and getting enough muscle to deal with the pikes. Then when it comes down to it, they have something like a dozen people. The entire final episode just felt a bit lackluster to me. The rancor bit was pretty awesome, but the rest was a bit meh. Instead of getting a dozen people from Freetown to come help, why not go out and recruit some of the other tribes of Tuskens? Boba Fett uniting a couple of hundred Tuskens to rid the planet of the Pikes would have been so much better.

Also, if you’re putting a sniper on a roof along with someone to act as a distraction, maybe put them on different roofs.

Okay, anyway. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re probably not in the target audience, and you can probably skip it.
