    I really hate how dumb they made Boba. Like, if you wanted to show him stumbling at this new leadership thing and then show him getting better over time, fine. He was dumb the whole time.

    Perfect example: Cad Bane shows up and says he is negotiating on behalf of the Pyke Syndicate.

    Boba tells him to kick rocks.

    The Pyke Syndicate shows up ready to fight and Boba actually says to Mando "Do you think Cad Bane is working with them?"

    HE JUST FUCKING TOLD YOU THAT HE WAS YOU THICK HEADED DIPSHIT

    Also, "You said no one could sneak up on us!"

    This show had so many problems. If I listed them all this comment would become a book. Perhaps The Book of Teresa? Anyway the guys nailed it in their review. Unless I hear rave reviews (doubtful) I won’t be watching any future seasons.

    I agree Boba Fett is stupid as shit on this show, but to be fair, he asked Din if Cad Bane was with them, not if he was working with them.

    I was really holding out hope that somehow they were going to tie this all together by the end but holy fuck did they do the complete opposite. 

    Why didn’t they just make the gangster show that they set up??? I’m so confused as to what happened here, because something VERY CLEARLY happened to this production. An aging bounty hunter tired of working dangerous jobs for people who don’t care whether he lives or dies and deciding to carve out a piece of the criminal underworld for himself is a fucking GREAT direction to take that character, especially given Morrison’s age. It’s a classic Capo-turns-boss tale that practically writes itself. Fennec Shand should have been acting as his mouth piece and consigliere and running shit on the street, with Boba really only getting involved when a point needed to be made or the shit got personal like with Cad Bane or the Pyke Syndicate. Speaking of which, why the hell did they give the whole taking out the heads of the 3 families and the mayor and the Pyke representative bit to Fennec??? Those were all PERSONAL betrayals to Boba, he should have been the one to go in there and fuck all of them up. I’ve never seen a more passive protagonist in my life. 

    It would have been a perfectly clean way to transition him into a new role and character archetype while acknowledging that you created Din Djarin LITERALLY as a replacement skin because LucasFilm turned down Favreau’s original pitch for a Boba Fett show. I’m also not convinced that they needed to show Boba struggling at this job either, he’s spent his whole life mingling with and working for criminal organizations, I’d think he’d have a pretty good understanding of how all this worked- who he could blackmail, who he could pay off, who he could strong arm, and who he could bring into his circle by promising capo positions in his new organization like all his old bounty hunter buddies. Imagine a Season 1 of this show where Boba assassinates Bib Fortuna and takes the palace, so Jabba’s twin cousins hire a whole crew of bounty hunters and assassins to go after him, only to have him deliver an impassioned plea for them to join him and use their resources to take all this shit for themselves. That’s so much more compelling! 

    He could have used all his connections and experience across the galaxy and his relationship to the Tuskens to build a legit and potent criminal empire on Tatooine  that could rival the likes of the Pyke Syndicate, the Hutt Council, or even Crimson Dawn down the line. Like fuck, it was all RIGHT THERE, and they chose to do absolutely nothing with it. I feel like I have this story way more thought than they ever did.

    I agree with all of you!! Such a train wreck of a show. I guess the digestive acid of the sarlacc pit is some kind of sedative because the second BF comes out, he’s soft as baby shit. I went into this expecting a toned down Punisher vibe and instead we got the meandering writings of a C- 6th grader. I guess shame on me for setting high expectations?! But to be fair, even the BF we saw in the Mandalorian was more of the way of Empire than he was in this sorry ass show.
