Screener Squad: The Book of Boba Fett

Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett Series Review


With the success of Disney’s The Mandalorian, it’s not surprising that spin-offs are starting to arrive, with more announced on the way. The Book of Boba Fett, however, is more of a The Mandalorian S2.5. In this seven-episode miniseries, Temuera Morrison returns as Fett and Ming-Na Wen as his number one assassin, Fennec Shand, as they take the throne of Jabba The Hutt on Tatooine and attempt to restore order, albeit a kinder/gentler order. Needless to say, not everyone is pleased with this and the two are forced to take on numerous threats and challenges in order to stay in charge. But don’t worry Mandalorian fans, as Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Baby Yoda (I know, it’s Grogu, whatever) pretty much take over the last few episodes. This ended up being both positive and negative, as were many other things about this series, although Chris, Harmoni, Neil, and Jennifer definitely did not agree about all the negatives. Check out their review here.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.



Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)

Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!



Neil Anderson (Screener Squad)

I first got hooked on movies when I saw Star Wars at a drive-in theater as a kid. Growing up in a small, rural town meant not having access to a lot of movies. In college, that all changed. I couldn’t get enough. I love it all — flicks, films, movies, and cinema. I still have that wide-eyed wonder of that kid watching movies from the back of a pick-up truck at the drive-in.




Jennifer Lynn Larsen (Giganticast, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad)

Born near Seattle, WA, Jennifer has transplanted to Austin TX and is equal parts Roller Derby Girl, Cosplayer, Dungeon Master, Mothra Priestess, and game nerd. She writes the weekly Cosplay beat for Bell of Lost Souls under the name Mayhem’s Muse and travels the world competing in traditional Ground and Horseback archery tournaments with The Eastern Contingent. She comes to OneOfUs by way of Rage Select, where she is part of the dynamic duo “Team JRPG” with magical girl and fellow contributor Matt Frank. (So, SO much fangirling). Jennifer is known for her love of Dragonlance, classic JRPGS, and all things 1980s. She is a regular contributor to Giganticast and is currently diving through every Mothra project ever created. She just returned from her first appearance at G-Fest where she cosplayed as Miana of the Houtua.

  1. I hate to chime in but this fanbase is finally broken. I think the star wars fandom has created some of the most divisive groups of people since christianity and I can’t get behind this series anymore. I look at this show and all I see is a dead horse that needs to get a proper burial. I remember the days when all we had of star wars was the three movies, the comics, the games and novels that didn’t split the fanbase like its doing now. For people defending this show: please stop!! If its bad, then nothing is gonna change anybody else feelings because its the same feelings that people have had since the prequels. I just think star wars needs to be put to rest or more people are gonna get hurt from all the fighting that I keep seeing online. All the arguing and complaining that has now turned me from an eager young fan to a bitter old guy that no longer wants to associate with the star wars brand anymore.

    1. The fanbase wasn’t split in the original days because there was no internet. When everyone can say their piece where everyone can see it, there’s always those who disagree. And ultimately, why is that a bad thing? It’s exhausting to read about toxic fandoms to be sure but they exist for EVERY fandom and are equally as loud. It’s not Star Wars that’s causing a problem, it’s the rise of unreason and people who can’t disagree on anything without making death threats.
