I'll be honest, looking at the series so far as a whole, I was undecided on The Book of Boba Fett until this week's episode. But that was excellent.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@RogerRoger thoughts on today's episode? Personally really enjoyed it and I'm very, very excited for next week!

@Gremio108 I get what you mean, last week was a big stumble for me. But this week was a great episode and sets up next week and the rest of the series very well. Any worries I had have truly been removed!

@NedStarksGhost I loved it on paper, but was a teensy bit disappointed with the execution. I felt it kinda fizzled out, and also thought that, outside of his slapstick kitchen chase with that adorable little droid, Temuera Morrison didn't seem as engaged as he usually is. Ming-Na Wen was outstanding, though. Maybe I'm just being overly-critical and picky for some reason!

That being said, the whole sarlacc trying to eat Slave 1 sequence was very impressive, and will go down in history as one of the show's highlights, for sure!

Am real glad you and @Gremio108 enjoyed it and yes, here's to next week! Only three more episodes!

Finished Witcher season 2 on Netflix. A big improvement on the first season actually, a more coherent story and some great episodes in there. Just needs to not get bogged down in exposition going forwards.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

I enjoyed this more than last week, although it doesn’t seem to be able to break out of this slow trot, maybe I’m also being overly critical and expecting too much. I hate to admit it but I’ve been treading a fine line near boredom the last two weeks. Other than that it is well executed and acted, and I can’t fault the Wild West tone of things.

On hiatus. Back soon 👍

@Keith_Zissou Yeah, I agree. Don't get me wrong, I still love the show, and would be happy to see more from Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen every week for all eternity, but I'm really hoping that it's all been building up to something spectacular, and that the final few episodes are suitably epic.

@Keith_Zissou @RogerRoger I have a feeling it will be one of them shows where, after the final episode or two, we will look back on the rest of the season with much higher praise. The slow pace and arguably dull parts will, hopefully, all make sense in a big pay off.

@NedStarksGhost Well said, buddy. Here's hoping! I'm also never changing this avatar again so, whatever happens, at least it's given us all that.

Just binged The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman on Netflix. Was really good and thought provoking. There are some scary people out there!

@Voltan Does anybody actually like the Rabbids? I’ve yet to find a single person who doesn’t find them massively irritating.

Voltan

@nessisonett Tbh my experience with Rabbids is limited to seeing a few short trailers and I don't think I know anyone who played the games
I'm willing to check out the Netflix show though - worst case scenario I'll waste however-long-an-episode-is of my time

Cuphead Show is looking good though!

There are so many things I could say about today's The Book of Boba Fett episode, but my overwhelming reaction is one I never expected.

After so many years of being treated like a second-class fan by Disney, it's immeasurably gratifying to see the prequel trilogy, and particularly Episode I: The Phantom Menace, being treated with the respect it's always deserved. I can imagine some purists and intransigent JJ Abrams types rolling their eyes at the entire second half of the episode, but nuts to 'em. I was there for every single second of it, and felt like an eleven-year-old kid again as the nods, references and visual cues kept coming.

The fact that some of these choices are gonna have a lasting impact on the Star Wars multiverse is dazzling but, regardless of that, it was just a special kind of joy to get a virtual fist-bump for once. To echo one of the galaxy's most badass characters, it felt wizard.

And, also speaking as a gamer, the reference to Jedi: Fallen Order was adorable!

Finished watching The Witcher season 2. Great season! Even though nothing really major happened this season, it's clear that they're building up for more eventful upcoming seasons and I can't wait for the next one! I also feel like I'm learning a lot about The Witcher universe: the characters, the politics and so on, and hopefully this knowledge will make things easier for me when I inevitably start playing the games.

@RogerRoger what an incredible episode. It is by far the most excited I've felt after the end of an episode this season. So, so well done. Love the fact they're incorporating the prequel trilogy. Like you, felt just like a kid again watching it. Overjoyed by what I was watching!

I was engrossed by the BD droid! It is unbelievably adorable, when it does it's little happy dance especially! So happy they've shown it live action. Does it also hint at Cal Kestis joining the live action fold?!

Bryce Dallas Howard really did an excellent job with this, I'd be happy to see her get a series of her own!

@NedStarksGhost Yeah, I've thoroughly enjoyed all of Bryce Dallas Howard's episodes before, and this was no exception. She's such a skilled director, and really taps into what makes Star Wars so magical. I really hope she'll continue to contribute to the franchise going forward.

I don't think the BD unit was specifically Cal's BD-1, so doubt we'll be seeing Cal, if only because his appearance several years after Return of the Jedi would undercut any dramatic tension in any inevitable sequels to Jedi: Fallen Order (unless there's a massive timeskip, and we rejoin the adventures of Cal, Cere and Greez some thirty years down the line). It was still adorable to see represented in live action, packed with all the personality and features of its virtual counterpart! Such a great addition!

The Legend of Korra.

It's taken me a while to get through but that's not an indictment of the show at all, I've just been busy. While the second season didn't reach the highs of the other three, I ended up adoring the series as a whole and it's definitely a favourite of mine.
