I had to look up the tune of another series to identify this almost subliminal message, but I finally got it.

You need to think about who that little musical signature always accompanies, and remember, they're looking for hired muscle.

Is it me or is there a mismatch between Boba finding Fennec in the book of, and the same incident in the Mandalorian?

I seem to remember that in the Mandalorian episode Boba appeared right at the end, observing from afar and it was day time. In episode 4 of book of, he sees the flares and appears at night, must rewatch it to satisfy my geeky OCD inner self.

I did like the Wookie (Krrsantan) drinking and getting angered at the sight of a crew of Trandoshans enjoying themselves and the subsequent outcome.
Also, liked the scene at the Sarlacc Pit. The burning barge in the background, the use of the sonic charge were nice touches. Using a sonic charge made sense - unlike using it in the vacuum of space!

My bad, I'm mixing it up with the episode from season 2, the marshal. The incident from The book of & the Mandalorian do match up.

Ugh not a fan of the last episode either, while I liked the first two episodes, they are quickly losing me, it seems to me all this series is doing is, trying to  make Boba Fett look incompetent, ChewBlacka was the only redeeming quality in the last episode.

I caught the music right away, but I love the soundtracks for both shows.

This was my least favorite episode, but still fun. Nice to see the Slave I in action again, though I thought that flying it over the Sarlacc was a bit silly. Likewise, the modification den felt out of place or out of character. They are leaning a bit too much into this mod-gang thing. I don't mind a little extra flavor added to the Star Wars Universe, but not it feels like we are trying to paint everything with that brush. I assumed that an operation like replacing Luke's hand was a luxury afforded to the few and not a thing that people did for giggles. I suppose that even a place like Tatooine has to "Grow up" at some point, but the Star Hipsters trying to gentrify Mos Espa is too far!  >:(  lol

I was seriously entertained by the rat-catcher droid scene and the conference room table above the rancor. Krrsantan doing what wookies are best known for was also a nice touch. I feel like I've been promised that moment since I was a little kid!  lol

At this point, I'm also hoping that Boba hiring muscle lines up with his conversations with Fennec about starting a bounty hunter family. If we can get Dengar, IG-88, Bossk, Zuckuss and 4-Lom back together, I'll be over the moon.

I thought that and the equivalent scene in Solo (strangely underrated in my view) are two of the better in-jokes in post-original Star Wars.

I also liked the return of smaller Trandoshans (not seen in live action since 1977, I think - I've no idea about the cartoons).

My son's also taken some inspiration from the series for his tin-foil and Fimo projects ; our recent visit to the Harrhausen exhibition provided the catalyst.

Eh, I look at it like this. Luke got a high class surgical prosthetic that emulates his real hand perfectly  even with fake skin. These modders though are repurposing droid bits for both an aesthetic and combat edge. It's like a guy getting a running blade versus a peg-leg with a knife on the end. Similar but different.

In the WEG D6 rules there was a pre-designed cyborg character (along with smugglers, engineers, force users etc) that could be used if players didnít want to create their own so Iíve got no problem with it.

Also, thereís always been a distinct lack of blood in Star Wars, partly because blaster shots cauterise the wounds and partly because itís for kids  :)

she is a fox though ;)

Seconded  ;D
