So I watched the first episode of the new
Boba Fett and IG-88 err, I mean totally unrelated bounty hunter and unrelated IG-droid show. It was pretty much exactly as expected out of a Boba Fett and IG-88 show. The Mandolorio gets a bounty mission, then heads to go get the bounty, then gets the bounty.
There was some mildly interesting stuff about "the guild", which I don't know much about because I'm not following current Star Wars canon, but it seems like a cool John Wick honor-among-thieves, pirate's code sorta deal. That was cool when the two bounty hunters ran into each other and worked together. it was a little unexpected to see this tough-as nails gritty no-fun-allowed Star Wars character be put into situations that are a little comical. I like all the stuff with learning to ride the creatures with the old alien guy. He was the best, I loved that line he kept saying. Gotta say though that moment at the end with the bounty was... unneeded.
Overall I enjoyed it for what it was, and I'll tune in next time. I just wonder what kind of story you can really tell beyond what we've already seen in one episode. Boba Fett was a blank enough slate for what he was, but this new guy is totally different because... he... Is a Mandalorian? We'll have to wait and see if they have any ideas besides " 'member Boba Fett? "
