The flashbacks are clearly the better part of the series.

I could watch an entire season of Fett living among the Tuskens, with a finale where he meets Fennec and eventually Mando.

I don't really give two shits about the Mos Espa stuff, but

the Wookie was a complete badass.

Better, I'd still rather keep the focus on the present, but this was a more satisfying episode. The weapon forging station was taken directly from an old Ralph McQuarrie concept piece, recognized it immediately.

Seeing the Black Wookie in real life is awesome.

By the way, his name is:
Spoiler:
Krrsantan.


I’m really liking the storytelling of the Tuskens better than the dialog on Mon Espa.

I was really glad to see this as a longer episode.

An interesting read on an Easter Egg if you know who Camie and Fixer are…

Awesome episode. I noticed Dean Cundey was the cinematographer.

The brother and sister Hutts on the platform together, and the platform straining from their weight and the poor minions who have to transport them around town, I love it. Working my way through the 2nd episode (started it up on my lunch break) and still enjoying this show a whole lot. Oh yeah, as the AV Club put it, the Rancor pit gag turned out to be fun. However, the assassin should have been more suspicious as to whether or not the Rancor was in the pit when he did not see a large crowd gather to watch him get torn apart by the Rancor. In Jedi it was a public event when Jabba fed someone to the Rancor, and without anyone to see this boss move by Fett, what would be the point of feeding someone to a Rancor with no audience.

In their defense, all of the people in the room (Boba, Fennic, and the Pig Bros) were watching. That’s 100% participation. 😀

Evil Wookiee looked awesome. I expect great things from him.

The kids and I really enjoyed it for the second week in a row.

One of them pointed out the lack of dialogue and how well the episode worked without it.

they did a great job on the train hijacking.

can’t wait to see the Wookie again.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett (S1E02) - "Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine" - 1/5/22

I dug it a lot. Something tells me the Fett is gonna have some enforcers when the time comes.

I was surprised how much longer the flashback was compared to present day (or whenever, you know what I mean). I don't know that it's the stronger story, but my sense is the scales will tip on that soon enough.

There is a part of me that felt a Dances with Wolves vibe that could rub some people the wrong way, and yet I thought it was done in the most aware way it could in order to do it well.

I don't know Dr. Aphra and Krrsantan but I am enjoying how this piece of show or comic or movie keeps getting connected in these new projects. It feels well done.

I had my closed captioning on so I saw one of the character's names in that small desert cantina, but did their names come out in another way and I missed it? Is it basically their look and the planet that made people put two and two together?

Morrison is ripped. Yes, they didn't show his stomach, but his pecks and abs show me that he's basically muscle. I mean, if they digitized that, I don't know. But given the comments on his appearance in the last thread, maybe that robing scene puts some of those comments to rest.

The flashback stuff was good but after 2 episodes nothing has really happened in the present.

I'm pretty sure that the Wookiee is Black Krrsantan, a prominent character in the post-Disney Marvel Comics, particularly the Doctor Aphra books, making his live-action debut.

In that regard, I wonder if it's a "slow burn." The first season of The Mandalorian got criticized for being a "hunt of the week" series until it got into the overall big picture plot toward the end. Maybe this series is more about telling two stories: from Sarlaac to Fennec and from Fortuna to fortune. With a different (smaller?) scope, maybe the "slow burn" technique is their road.

Yeah, it’s Camie and Fixer. Check out the 00:54 mark in the video for their deleted scene from A New Hope.


Theyve been part of the EU for awhile… even had action figures: Rebelscum.com: The Vintage Collection Photo Archive

It's kind of funny the way people are commenting on Morrison's physique.

While it's true Boba Fett's body looks different than he did is ESB and ROTJ, considering his chosen profession, he's probably going to be a big, beefy guy. Not skinny, no show muscles, but a big, massive brawler.

I liked how the Sand People were combing the desert to find that creature right before the train came by the first time. At least they found something. More than I can say for others...

Fennec should really have a closer parking spot to Boba’s palace.
