A  bounty hunter's bounty hunter: Boba Fett. Given that Pat & Charles aren't huge fans of Boba, we enlisted the help of Todd Hoffman from WSTR - Galactic Public Access to help us with perspective. He used jedi-like power over the holonet to keep us on track. Alas, we went off the rails... and right onto the Razorcrest! Join us as we break down season 1 of the Mandalorian - and see how much effort Todd used to bring us back. Thankfully, we will record a LIVE holonet episode with Todd and it will be FULL Boba Fett!
