The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

Agreed. Towards the end she was primarily used as a tool to advance narrative. It was really heavy handed. It got to the point when she spoke we would think “ok, here comes the third person summary”. Shame.

Never even noticed. I thought everything was fine and it was a fun show that maybe overdid the cheese and fan service a bit. After all, this is Star Wars, not some over-serious drivel like The Godfather.

which show has had the mods biker gang before this one?

EDIT: The parts that were new to this show (the mods in particular) weren't well recived.
Speeders, riders and speeder chases are nothing new. A good one happened on Endor. Coloring the speeder bikes and giving them lots of mirrors doesn't really count to make it new. Bad? Yes. New? No. :)

The mods were a cool concept, but the slow chase through Mos Espa kind of robbed them of their coolness.

Basically, pretty much all the show that wasn't either Dances with Bantha or Mandalorian season 2.5 felt phoned in.

That was prolly one of the best episodes of the 5 actual Boba series.

I still think handing over 2 full episodes to not-Boba chars was a bad idea. Would've been different if it was Fennec or the Gamorean Guards getting some back story or day in the life story.

I also feel bad for the Gamorean Guards. They fought so hard, only to get shoved off a cliff.

Overall, it seems like the problem could have been solved by Fennec taking a trip sooner to the Pike's office where Boba'd already been before.

Problems:
why does it take so long for them to get somebody on the rooftop?

Why do they all arrive to help, only to group up in the same basic spot outside the Sanctuary?

Why didn't they start shooting the moment the droids stepped a foot our from around the corner? The shields didn't come up until they positioned themselves.

Why didn't they shoot once the shield went down to help Boba and his pet?

Did anybody notice the tip of Boba's staff bent when he pulled it out of Bane, but the next camera cut was straight?

How did Krrrsantan and the 2 power Modders get back with the group when they fell behind to shoot the droid and it passed them?

I feel like the mods weren’t actually characters, they were just moving set pieces. I learned more about Amy Sederikis mechanic in her 5 min convo with Mando than I learned about all of the mods combined in the whole show.

The mods would have been a fun idea, if they weren't diluting an already incredibly diluted story. And didn't look like they wandered in from a completely different show in every scene they were in. And weren't so obviously merchandise bait / kid appeal characters with zero actual charactization beyond "teenagers with attitude".

The mods did seem a bit out of place though, they are a cyberpunk concept that might have been fine on Coruscant or similar urban planet but were just a bit too much for Tatooines desert towns.
and yeah the slow chase robbed them of any cool they might have earned by better stunts and fx

Mods and biker gangs aren’t new. Real life had mods and biker gangs 70 years ago. They might be new to you, but they aren’t new.

I mean, I think wanting "new" as a general concept is a silly demand, since everything is based off of something else, and can usually be boiled down to a base concept that's old as dirt. The mods gang is new to the setting of Star Wars, but they feel shallow, poorly thought out, and not an organic part of the world they live in.

But then, maybe if we had more time to get to know literally any of them, it wouldn't have been a problem.

I still stand by the biggest issue with this series is that we have no idea why any of the characters want what they want. Which is likely due to the show only having five episodes to tell its story.

This has been my point, they tried something new for the setting, and for many, it didn't work.
But the point you seem to be trying to convey is that it must be its newness that made people dislike it, and that therefore those asking for something new are being hypocritical.

Which excludes the possibility that it was disliked due to flaws unrelated to whether it was new or not.

I deleted the "for any number of reasons it didn't work for many" which in retrospect I should have kept. While for others it worked just fine.

if he’s going to go back home to get something useful…. maybe bring his heavily armed spaceship next time not a rancor? (And maybe go grab that X-wing too?)
No matter the damage the rancor caused, it would have been nothing compared to the collateral damage from ships weapons.

I don't know how exactly I feel regarding on the final episode.

I feel as though there were a lot of cool individual parts, but they were tossed together sloppily.

The entire plan for how to fight the Syndicate was almost laughably bad. It's a bit jarring to watch a show in which Boba and Fennec are often incompetent at basic military tactics.
