The Book of Boba Fett Finale

In This Episode

On this episode of X-Ray Vision, Jason Concepcion and Rosie Knight saddle up a rancor! First in Previously On (2:05), Jason and Rosie talk about Amazon’s LOTR and more Super Bowl Sunday trailers we might expect, Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi poster drop, Futurama’s return on Hulu, and offer some Random Recommendations. Then in the Airlock (15:18) they dive deep (deeeep) into the epic finale of The Book of Boba Fett, discussing what we might expect from future Star Wars stories, critiques of Boba Fett, and the exploration of politics and people at the heart of the Star Wars universe. In Nerd Out (1:10:40) a listener pitches us on Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files novels. And in the Endgame (1:13:47), Jason and Rosie give the Medal of Yavin to one character each in the Book of Boba Fett.
