Not missing much

Not nearly as good as The Mandalorian. Also since it takes place in Jabba huts town there is a lot more adult theme like drinking, casinos, nightclubs, what seems like prostitutes than in the Mandalorian. As well as woman in their bras walking around bar in every scene they appear. First episode has some suggestive themes when Boba and Fennec first walk in casino. Boba appears in his underwear many times after healing himself in a tank. As a parent I thought other parents should know. Aside from that it is quite violent. I feel more so than Mandalorian. Almost excessively. Overall I wouldn't recommend.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (26 ):

Popular supporting characters don't often make great spin-off leads, but like the equally mysterious Mandalorian, Fett brings a fresh presence to the Star Wars universe. This series has the intimidating task of building a story around another character whose legend thrives in spite of (or because of) how little audiences actually know about him. Thankfully, The Book of Boba Fett avoids fleshing out Fett too much, outside of establishing his moral code and career aspirations. Instead, the focus is on the pulpy action and Tatooine's underworld dynamics. Fett becomes an Indiana Jones type, albeit one with somewhat less-honorable intentions, stepping from one sequence to the next as the challenges and surprises escalate. Overall, the show feels like a pulpy action-adventure show with monsters, fight scenes, and simple special effects, like a contemporary version of something like Clash of the Titans or Xena, Warrior Princess -- in a good way.
