Not sure about the Space Mods on their hover mopeds.

Also not so sure about that bit.

I'm going to give it a pass and pretend it didn't happen so I can hopefully enjoy the next "chapter" lol.

It's good enough that I'm just going to "buy in" for now.

A few reasons why I didn't care much for this episode:

Too much cheesiness (Saying "I am Boba Fett!" to a goofy droid, bonding with a Bantha, etc.)
Where were the spur sound effects when Boba found Shand?
How did Shand survive that long ass ride to the modder?
That modification montage was unnecessarily long with the cheesy ass music.
Shand says the speed biker gang likely didn't wipe out the Tusken tribe. Boba wipes out the speed bikers anyway.
Slave 1 turning on its forward thrusters...to go backwards.
Nobody really cares about Boba Fett - the factions aren't even intimidated by him.
Just too much conversation to explain things. The series should show, not tell.

I certainly missed it, but apparently at the end of the most recent episode....

...when they mention using credits to get extra muscle, the theme music from The Mandalorian plays....

I had the same issues, but still generally liked the episode, but the series feels a bit like a mixed bag. I respect them for taking so many chances, but not everything is paying off.

I will say that The Mandalorian felt more "professionally made", so far. That might also be that it took its time more. This just feels a little rushed... I know "pandemic" , but this is a LONG awaited revival!

It has wonkiness but I maintain that there is much difference in quality between this and Mandalorian and that the cuteness of baby yoda blinded people to any of its flaws.

And also people have created an idea of Boba Fett that doesn't actually exist. He had like 2 lines in 2 movies.

Mando worked because it was a new story in the old universe. It was old but new at the same time.

This is just a nostalgia ride that isn't horrible but isn't good either. Fett was never a character, he was a suit of armor and a cool toy we all made up stories around.

Tatooine is just too much too. How many people are going to stand on the same exact spot that just happens to be a tiny trap door. It mentions a tiny character from the originals who we know only because Kenner made a figure out of so we actually knew his name.

Not to mention visually, Fett looks like an old guy in a suit of armor that doesn't quite fit. The action just isn't the same. What's funny is Fett looks more bad ass out of the armor.

Why does he go looking for his armor in the pit when he knows he climbed out with it? Just to go shoot the sarlacc?

Star Wars needs to let the trilogy be after this. New stories set in the same universe would be way more interesting.
