  1. But Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian. He is just a clone of one.
  2. Was the original version of the Emperor just Snoke in a hood?
  3. Dang, that's pretty cutthroat. I am sure you will get the honor of tripling your work load. That's how those things seem to play out. Sorry about the bad news. At my place they are laying people off for "reasons," but has more to do with not getting a vaccine.
  4. Hi Mom. I got shanked in first grade class today. WTF is up with kids today?!
  5. Yup Yup! Like I said earlier, this should have been a Clint Eastwood/Unforgiven style story about Boba getting back into the Bounty Hunter game. I have no problem with him taking out worse dudes, so that he is relatively an antihero, but Boba is supposed to be cold, calculating, and relentless. He's the dude who caught Han Solo and took him to Jabba. I want THAT Boba back. Plus, I still don't get him wanting to run the entire underworld organization because he's "smarter than those guys?" IS that the explanation we get? You know, even in Mando season 2 when Boba popped up,
  6. What I want to know is if Boba is still mad at Han Solo for knocking him into the pit.
  7. I don't like the idea of Vader visiting Padme's tomb. He was supposed to sever all ties of Anakin Skywalker and become Darth Vader.
  8. I am so sorry Brandon. My deepest condolences. I hope things cool down with your wife, too.
  9. I figured I had a 50-50 chance. I knew the center was you. LOL
  10. I am sorry you have A-Fib, MG. But, I hope they caught it in time and can treat you.
  11. Well, true. However, I would argue Mando was about a Bounty Hunter getting out of the game. We have Boba, also a Bounty hunter, getting out of the game. That's the problem. Boba could have worked as a bounty hunter getting back into the game. It would all come down to writing, and how it was done. I was one of those rooting for more of a Clint Eastwood/Unforgiven take on Boba.
  12. I'm not going to argue with that, because that WAS the original intent. But, since Boba did survive, I'm just saying that he should have remained a bounty hunter. What they are doing with him now is not what I preferred. It seems out of character, and so far they are squandering a good vehicle for adventure. If they keep going the way they are, I am going to wish Boba did stay dead.
  13. If it were up to me, I would have followed the model of Dexter. We all knew Dexter was a killer, but he would take out even worse people. Have a big bad of the season, and with each episode have a bounty or 2.
  14. Make that the bounty of the week, inter-spliced with flashbacks how he survived and changed, and I think that would have been the best way for a Boba series. I really don't care about biker gangs or crime syndicate politics.
  15. Yeah DW, I agree. I am sure that will be part of the "pay off" in which we find out why Boba is trying to take over Jabba's crime organization, but so far, it's not that interesting. Is he doing for the Tuskens? If so, that's kind of lame. I mean if Boba is supposed to be rehabbed as an antihero who has a personal code of honor now, why is he running a crime enterprise? That's a job for a villain. In the EU, Boba went on to become a Mandalore or some such, so I get the idea of becoming more than just a bounty hunter or warrior, but I don't understand the motive so far of this show.
  16. I didn't know this until you mentioned it. Now, it seems to make sense. I don't think its a case of not trying, but Disney needs to put the funding in that it needs to bring in new places and adventures. Being stuck on Tatooine both in the flash backs and present, as well as Boba the Crime Boss is less interesting an idea than Boba the Bounty Hunter that goes places is what is bogging this down. I like the flashbacks on how Boba survived, but episode 3 left a bad taste. Boba needs to be more action oriented. I think they painted themselves in the corner because Mando already does/did th
  17. Yeah they are. When people take it to a personal level, all I can think is they are the type of cry baby selfish ***holes who go home and kick their dog because they didn't get their way.
  18. Thank you guys! My fiancé was there for me when my Dad passed in August, and she was just starting to get over her cousin and uncle passing in November. This one hit her especially hard, though, being a younger brother. They were pretty close, too. I feel so horrible for her.
  19. Yeah, it's almost Grind House-ish.
