The Book of Boba Fett

The Book of Boba Fett

As a kid, I enjoyed reading science fiction. I no longer read much of it, but I happily follow it in movies and TV.

I’ll watch just about anything in the Star Wars universe and, most recently, loved the TV series The Mandalorian, created by the talented actor-writer-director Jon Favreau. (If you’ve never seen him in his wonderful small movie Chef, stop reading this instant and go watch it.)

So when the Star Wars folks announced a new series, The Book of Boba Fett, also created by Favreau, I was all in. For the first couple of episodes I was surprised at the plodding pace and the nearly expressionless main character, but by the third episode I settled into its steady rhythms. Then, in the fifth episode, came a big surprise, which I’ll leave you to discover for yourself.
