I do not particularly care much for either of these shows but this was better than most episodes of the Mandalorian, more dialogue, more characters, and more imaginative story line. Also that city is interesting, it does not look like CGI when they ran over the rooftops, but i can also not imagine they have built such a thing just for this? That would cost very much.

I wondered about that too while watching. smile CGI became so good (as we discussed in the https://next-episode.net/the-mandalorian forum thread IIRC), and since they can now even generate cars* that drive through real landscapes, I guess those rooftops aren't a big problem. cool If anyone sees an article about details, please post.


*Yeah, those car commercials on TV? Those are not always real cars anymore that you see driving around there.

That's fine with me.  But it does kind of make me sound like a character from a Stephen King novel, someone who did something years ago that only a few people from the town remember, lived in some house at the edge of town.  Or maybe a bit like old man Peabody...

lol  Hahahaha!  Yes, exactly!  Or 'Ol Man Marley from Home Alone.  Love the Back to the Future reference, "MY PINES!!!!" lol

'ol Graybags it is!  Even if I don't say it, I'm thinking it!

@dofus You're welcome! wink

@lighton  All I got is this, I think/assume the roof's are just sets already on the Disney backlot; even more incredible if all that running on the roof was completely green screen, I couldn't tell, felt real and seamless.

Thanks for the link. Maybe we'll learn more about that scene in the future. smile

Oh ya, the behind the scenes making of videos on Disney+ will definitely air after the season and they're always great.

(Proteinnerd, listen to "The Pit" while reading my response.)

Golden Age Thinking.  Should we ask them to put him back in the pit?  lol  That'd be such a great way to end the series though, Boba Fett has this long complicated story, then Han accidentally knocks him back in the pit, roll credits.  It was so stupid how he ended up in there in the first place, this show makes him way cooler, imo.  Re-watch Return of the Jedi, timestamp 33:40, and be objective this time.

I never gave him much fan service as a kid, but I had friends who did.  I just thought he was a villain that kinda sucked, because I presumed he died in the pit after Han lightly tapped him on the back! Even in the Mandalorian, I didn't realize that was post pit.  lol

I will give you this, making a show about him now, is the definition of retroactive continuity or a ret-con:  (in a film, television series, or other fictional work) a piece of new information that imposes a different interpretation on previously described events, typically used to facilitate a dramatic plot shift or account for an inconsistency.

Boba "Enough time to launch a t-shirt canon and do a dance before flailing himself into the Sarlacc Pit" Fett.

Ha ha I'd never seen/heard "The Pit" before, very funny.

Well they did put him back in the pit long enough to see him break out, so yes they should lol

I don't think its Golden Age thinking. My disappointment is because he has gone from being "the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy". With just that, your imagination goes wild and the guy could be or do anything to now, he's just some guy in armour. The mystery is gone. To be fair, I hated the whole Jengo Fett bit in the prequels as well, that killed the mystery too.

Its like a horror movie, the suspense and terror are highest before you see the monster, it could be anything ... then you finally see it and its never as bad/good as you imagine....

Ah yes, never meet your heroes.  That mystery was definitely gone a long time ago with Jengo and Boba in the prequels, now even more so with The Mandalorian, speaking of which, it's always funny to remember that every time Boba kills a stormtrooper he's killing his dad/himself! lol 

Disney+ > The Mandalorian > 206 > Timestamp 13:00

Hopefully you continue to watch, and this show brings some of that 'the man, the myth, the legend' back for you in some way.

Ok I withdraw the benefit of the doubt I was giving Rodriguez. This show's just plain bad.

oh I dont know. Just watched eps 2 and quite a bit of action

Spoiler

. The hells angels aliens and the 2 fat slugs, the female one with her fan ( lol) . I just realised you are not meant to take the aliens seriously they are just things to poke fun at, incl the robot train driver perhaps why I never really liked star wars?

This is a Lucas show? Did he ever make any thing else other than Star Wars?

36

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

Indiana Jones, American Graffiti

and sadly no, the aliens aren't all just to poke fun at. this is just poorly done.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

Well, I've enjoyed 1x2. Good fun. smile

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

I'm really torn.

I absolutely love the aesthetic and world of Star Wars, this looks great.

The story is another issue entirely, so far is just so completely meh, I cant bring myself to like or hate it.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

I feel exactly the same. I don't find it a chore to watch or think its terrible, but I don't look forward to it each week. But then there's not many shows these days I do really look forward to to be fair

thats its plus point. All the good shows are either gone or waiting for the next season. But The Discovery of Witches is back in a few days so thats one of the good ones

That's a great side-benefit of not having time to watch everything right away, as is the case with me recently. Only finding the time to watch less than 7 episodes per week, a plethora of great shows is waiting for me to catch up. big_smile

And still... I choose to watch Boba Fett. smile I wonder where its IMDb rating will end up, right now it's 8.1/10 - with https://next-episode.net/the-mandalorian being 8.8/10.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

I never got into Star Wars, maybe watched one of the movies, not sure which, and not sure if I watched it completely (doubt it).

The Mandalorian didn't look interesting, didn't watch.

I wasn't planning on watching The Book Of Boba Fett but then you guys made me interested talking about the rooftop scenes and cgi.

I watched it and I enjoyed it.  Just wish I could binge it.  At least I was able to binge the first two episodes being a latecomer to the show.

44

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

I like it, if only it fills in a lot of Star Warsverse back story. Particularly liked all the time spent on the Sand People.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett

102 took me two attempts. 

Boba on Kamino flashback from Clone Wars was the only thing that got me interested.  Love the prequels.  Very popular opinion I know everyone says.  All this post-pit tribal dancing nonsense bores me, I'm way more interested in pre-pit origin story Boba hanging out with Jabba/chillin with Vader.  Parts of this ep reminded me of the train job on Firefly, other parts like the Knights Tale training scene, which leads me to assume I'm just missing Wash, and can't wait for season 2 of Resident Alien that comes out in 3 weeks-ish.

Thinking of other things while watching = meh/10.

That's (at least) TWO reasons why you really should give https://next-episode.net/the-mandalorian a try! smile

@Wizard  So far this show is bland enough for all viewers to become indifferent not just because of the scenario but because of Boba's choice to...

...reason with his adversaries which softens his edge, makes him more of a politician than a soldier, and removes some of the suspense in knowing how he's going to approach every encounter.  If he would just shoot first and ask questions later, with a devil-may-care attitude, and play by his own set of rules, it would be as enjoyable as the Mandalorian, but so far he keeps everyone at arms reach and uses people to gain information like a politician and a spy.  While not completely out of character, he's certainly a softer Boba than the bodyguard/bounty hunter the movies would have us peg him as.  But I guess that's what happens to people when they fall into a pit, they have time to think and get all introspective about the meaning of life and shit.

I don't agree.  He was a bounty hunter, paid to track people down across the galaxy.  If he's not getting paid, why would he bother with all the killing?  Maybe he'd always wanted to be a politician smile

2020.  Meh.
