On the one hand I enjoyed having something to watch, but on the other it seemed jumbled.
I had just watched a video essay about how Star Wars was very linear in its storytelling, introducing new things firmly in context of what came before and staying focused on the story. Maybe that was just on my mind, but this series certainly did not feel that way.
Boba Fett felt confused, and I don’t have much more of an idea who he is now than six weeks ago. I’m still not really sure how saving Mos Espa makes the Sand People’s lot any better.
Fortunately, this mess doesn’t have “Episode _” at the start of it, so I’m much more forgiving than if it had.
I have really enjoyed all of Mando and BoBF and am looking forward to doing a chronological edit of the three seasons.
I think this would really help the content here. This doesn’t really work as a standalone show IMO, even just as a fanedited movie it’d still be a weak entry. It would be much better to just inject the flashback scenes into the first season of Mando than play everything else out chronologically. Just edit down the present stuff from episodes 1-4 down to 2 episodes than follow with the last 3 episodes of BoBF. Essentially making them the first 5 episodes of Mando S3.
