I'm loving the show but I'd like them to bridge the gap between "Most feared bad ass Bounty Hunter in the galaxy" to "crime lord with moral code that wants to rule with respect".

Isn't that what the whole Tusken Raiders flash backs have been about?

I hope all the Disney shows don't wimp out on showing us some ruthless badassery.

We mock George for not understanding his own character with Han shot first, but that's the exact kind of move Disney would have made.

I guess it made some sense in Mando, seeing as he formed a bond and begun to feel compassion toward the baby Yoda, but for all his 'I can bring you in warm or I can bring you in cold' he never really brings anyone in cold to my memory, he shoots in self defence only. Now we are seeing Boba Fett turned in to another feared warrior with the fair and generous nature and heart of gold. At least his sidekick still has some shoot first talk later about her.

I wonder if they'll wimp out with the Cassian Andor show, remembering in the film that he was ok to straight up murder an innocent unarmed source so the empire couldn't capture him.

In one of these type shows they would rather launch a reduced mission against inept stormtroopers and hey there's your episode.

So carbonite freezing isn't cold enough for you?

I know. I think I admitted that.

The other option would be to have Boba in his armour able to absorb the attacks, like Mando and the death troopers.

In general what I described is most noticeable in some things that are male vs female, the fight scenes are sometimes less rough with less punches and kicks and more throwing/pushing. I don't know. It could be a physical thing with actors not specialising in stunt work. It could be not wanting to be excessively violent toward a woman (ironic discussion here considering Temura's acting history).

Just to me, and I admitted that it could only be me and I don't expect anyone to agree, I immediately found it not that engaging because of what was happening. It was another immersion breaker personally.

Other enjoyed it, happy for them. I said why I didn't, was asked to elaborate, so I did. And I maybe I enjoyed elaborating on it a little.

On to episode 4.

I think choosing to throw Boba across the room, rather than just kill him, stood out to everyone.

There was a scene in the last episode in a flashback where someone was putting a stormtrooper helmet on a spike as Bobba rode in on a banther. It was pretty clear the head was still in the helmet. I thought that was pretty badass. The train heist was also badass. There doesn't have to be blood and gore and swear words for it to be badass.

Sleeping in the bacta tank is healing Boba's damaged brain.

They are dreams, not flashbacks.

Luke going beserker at the sarlacc in Jedi should have been one of the more gore filled scenes in TV, but obviously they can't do that.

For that scene the lightsaber was a stun baton.

Agree, but none of that is Boba.

Badass is about actions and attitude, not graphicness.

It wouldn't even have to be gory, as lightsabers do not cause much bleeding.

There would be lost of body parts thought. Does bloodless dismemberment count as gory? Honestly do not know...

Agree. A lightsaber would cauterize a wound, so there'd be very little blood. And blasters tend to cause internal injuries rather than external ones.

That female Tusken warrior (the one who was teaching Boba combat skills with the gaffi stick and had those great combat moments in the train heist) is arguably the most badass on the show thus far.

Strangely though there's blood from a lightsaber in Star Wars and Episode 1.

Yes there was a little pool of blood in the Cantina scene/rumble with Obi-Wan in ANH, next to the dismembered arm on the floor.

The bottom of the screen there's a blood splash when Obi cuts Maul in half in episode 1, blink and you'll miss it but it's there.

Yes it happens very quickly, more of a red mist/spray if anything. A split second. Definitely meant to represent blood, have seen it many times more so because my son is continually perplexed as to why Maul just stands there and allows it all to happen.
