    Yah, it's why I mused a while ago that this maybe one of those series that needs to be binged.

    Individually the episodes seem less than the sum of their parts.

    I do hope the mando teasing is not just a tease, and they bring him in for the war.
    But Din will be in Bo-Khatan's war for Mandalore...might see him instead in the past..Boba spying on him.

    the 2004 DVD release of the Special Edition version of Return of the Jedi. It’s there that Lucas shared the following information:

    "In the case of Boba Fett's death, had I known he was gonna turn into such a popular character, I probably would've made it a little bit more exciting. Boba Fett was just another one of the minions, another one of the bounty hunters and bad guys. He became such a favorite of everybody's that, for having such a small part, he had a very large presence. And now that his history has been told in the first trilogy [Lucas' Star Wars prequels], it makes it even more of a misstep that we wouldn't make more out of the event of his defeat because most people don't believe he died anyway."

    "I'd contemplated putting in that extra shot in [Return of the Jedi] where he climbs out of the hole, but I figured that it doesn't quite fit, in the end."
    Huh, didn't even know it was canon that he survived, all these years

    Dunno if it's official talk, heard talk about a bo-khatan series, which makes me wonder since why make it if she doesn't become mandalore again? They only would if she does, so I'm guessing din will not want to become or stay leader..dunno how he will end up
    I suppose a bo-khatan show would be about mandalorian expansionism, or the build up to it

    btw they have started filming mando season 3 again, so that's good news

    Well, it was hurt because it had a hole that likely hurt. Do you think about eating if you were say stabbed?

    It isn't really sus, because to the sarlacc that injury is like a really bad cut. It hurts but isn't life threatening.

    Lots of animals survive having literal holes put in them. Especially when the hole is relatively small in comparison to their body. See most predators.

    So twitter is in a uproar about the episode because Boba Fett didn't call his ship "Slave I" but "my Firespray gunship" in this episode.

    IDK if it warrants an uproar, but I do think that this particular example is one where they really didn't have to change the name. Just give it a positive backstory or whatever of "I'm owning this word because I never want to be a slave" or whatever.

    The issue is that outside of a few toys, there is nothing that confirms the ship has been renamed.

    Even if it was renamed, does it even really matter? Is the ship suddenly less cool because it isn't Slave I?

    They didnt change the name tho... his ship has always been a Firespray-model in EU, its just named Slave 1 just like Millenium Falcon is a modified YT-1300 freighter.

    I dont follow such drama but im fairly sure the people whining about it are those who know nothing of the lore.

    It makes more sense calling the ship with its actual model incase shes seen one elsewhere. Theres only one Slave-1 after all but many more Firespray-gunships. (assuming EU is considered canon, which i like to assume since they keep bringing in stuff from it... who knows what else they bring)

    But it hasnt been renamed. They simply canonized the actual ship model of Slave-1. Just like Millenium Falcon is an YT-1300 Freighter.

    Ya know I am kinda digging the backstory up to now.

    When he got tossed in the Sarlacc, he had time to contemplate his decisions while getting out. He looked at his life to that point found it lacking. When the Tuskens took him in he gained respect for their ways and it stuck on him.

    I dont like however the way he is being played out though. I get he is weak and doubting himself, but this aint the boba we grew up withb and read throughout books and comics.

    The pacing so far is slow yes, but the interactions are impactful. There is meaning behind each scene. With the end of episode 4 we are gonna see a fast ramp up to taking on the Pikes.

    And as far as the transhumanism....... WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK is this arguement...... how are we equating Cyborg implants from SWtoR to trans rights....... When I saw the Teenage Meta Cyborg Rangers all I thought was "hey....... they incorporated the Cyborg race class from SWtoR to canon." All my Commandos were Cyborg characters so I was stoked at seeing them.

    I do see alot of Fenn doing the brain work for Boba, but you also gotta remember, it was YEARS since Boba dealt with the underworld, he needs someone with the intel of today's underground to help him take his place as Dimyo. I am not analyzing every scene for Wokeness so yeah, I have not really seen it yet outside of the scene with the Wookie and the bar owner.

    So far, I have enjoyed each episode, but I like a good story so the pace is good for me but I see it is not for everyone. I want to see more of the Hutt Twins scheming. I doubt they are gonna just leave Jabba's or rather boba's empire alone.

    Makes no sense to given the context of the line. Why would Fennec know his ship's name? It would be like if I named my car Bertha and just told someone Bertha is missing after I lost my car rather than describing the make and model.

    The episode overall overall pretty good. Better E3 at least.

    The bad : The flashback felt way too slow. Getting the ship felt way too long and then they strangely just skipped through him killing Bib Fortuna. Also, I don't get why he would think his armor was in the Sarlacc knowing the nature of Jawas

    The good : Black Krrsantan as usual, Master Chef Grievous, Boba actually acting like a crime boss for once in this series, and obvious Din Djarin cameo that's coming.

    Sorry, but I have decided to cut myself off from society about 8 or so years ago. I occasionally peek out every one in a while and NOPE........ I choose to remain in seclusion.

    So no I dont know what transhumanism is but from the word itself, I dont think I want to risk what few bits of brain cells and sanity to find out. I will just stay in my own little pocket of earth

    Uhh... transhumanism is basically using technology to further the biological advancement of the human race. The term has been around for about 60 years and the concept has been around for centuries.

    Hole. The word is hole. And yes, even when something gets a small hole in its stomach it can survive. Especially big fictional monsters.
