I have one thought on episode five of Book of Boba Fett. I don’t think it’s a spoiler, but because it’s a general thought on the episode and the series as a whole it might be spoiler-adjacent. Spoilerish. Spoileresque. Whatever, if you’re worried about spoilers don’t read any further.
You’ve been warned, even though there shouldn’t be anything to worry about.
Okay. Here goes.
We have five episodes of season one now. Episode five is far and away my favorite of the bunch. No contest. Today’s episode was, in my humble opinion, so much better than the previous four that it’s not even funny. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed all four episodes. One was good. Two was excellent. Three… Four was very good.
The thing that bothers me about episode five (and also the thing that is sort of spoiler-adjacent) is that it has nothing to do with the overall story. It’s more or less a stand alone episode. It’s not quite X-Files freak of the week, but it’s close to that.
It’s a separate story from the main story line of the season… and it’s hands down the best episode.
What does that tell you about the story as a whole?
Just a thought, you know? Just a thought.
