This week’s TheBookOfBobaFett featured an amazing guest star — that made the show’s problems all the more obvious.

This week was the best episode, which is not a good thing.

This week’s installment of the latest series is titled “Return of the Mandalorian.” After teasing an appearance in last week’s final moments, Mando shows up this week in the very first scene.

Boba fett was a good cult character. This has been ruined by a cash grab. Should not have made this series. Mandalorian is such a great series. We didn’t need BookofBobaFett The pikes have the feel of these guys from 300 Mando season 2 episode 8.1 Really disliked this episode. This is Book of Boba Fett not the Mandalorian that should have been saved for that series and if the next episode barely has anything it will be annoying. This episode should have been of VS running around finding unique guns for hire to have.

Or maybe watch the whole series to see how it fits in and where the story goes…

The best episode of  The Book of Boba Fett does not feature Boba Fett. This week’s installment of the latest  Star Wars   series is titled “Return of the Mandalorian.” After teasing an appearance in last week’s final moments, Mando shows up this week in the very first scene. In short order, he learns to wield the Darksaber, forges his beskar spear into a present for his pal Grogu, joins the Armorer’s Mandalorian clan, gets kicked out of the Armorer’s Mandalorian clan, and builds a replacement for the Razor Crest. Mando didn’t so much return on The Book of Boba Fett  as he took over the show entirely. In fact, no one from  Boba Fett ’s cast of characters even appears onscreen in “Return of the Mandalorian” until the episode’s final seconds, when Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand shows up to ask for Mando’s help in resolving the burgeoning underground war on Tatooine. He agrees to help, but only after he pays a visit to Grogu. From start to finish, it was an entertaining hour of television. If it had been the season premiere of The Mandalorian , I’d be pretty satisfied. But since this was Episode 5 of The Book of Boba Fett , I was mostly just mystified. In fact, if you told me “Return of the Mandalorian” had originally been written as the next  Mandalorian  episode, then got repurposed as part of  The Book of Boba Fett to fill out its season after someone somewhere realized they were going to be one episode short of what they’d promised Disney, I would absolutely believe you.  And despite how generally enjoyable this week’s  Boba Fett was, it further exposed the structural issues with this show. From the beginning, The Book of Boba Fett  felt like a collection of discarded subplots, deleted scenes, and callbacks in search of a larger purpose. This week seemed to suggest that purpose was filling seven hours on
