Overall The Book of Boba Fett was a great addition to Star Wars universe. At first it felt like it was going to be a slow-burn addition western that was more about Fett’s survival and changing character after the events of Return of the Jedi and the first episode set that up perfectly with the dual narrative of past and present.
Then the series changed with every episode, focusing on different points, with episode 2 being mostly a flashback and episode 3 featuring barely any flashbacks. It didn’t ever really settle down, with episode 4 going back and forth. Then episode 5 happened, which felt like The Mandalorian, rather than Fett. The central character was missing for two whole episodes, which is just bizarre.
It all came together in the end and it was a great season. The lowest point, for me at least, was how long episode 2 felt compared to the rest of the series. The best episode didn’t feature Fett at all. It’s a strange series, but hopefully we’ll get season 2 with Mace Windu as currently being teased.
