    I’m really looking forward to the new Marvel shows and Star Wars shows which, of course, starts off next Wednesday with The Book of Boba Fett, it sounds quite exciting ?

  2. Saw first two eps of Boba Fett, all a bit meh.

  3. Yes, thx1138, it will be interesting to see if it can sustain its initial popularity, as reported by Deadline: “When it came to the Wednesday through Sunday viewership of Disney+/Lucasfilm’s The Book of Boba Fett, 1.7 million U.S. households tuned in to learn more about the mysterious bounty hunter’s origins in the first episode, Stranger in a Strange Land. That episode dropped on Wednesday, Dec. 29. The audience for Book of Boba Fett, measured by Samba TV across 46M TV devices with a panel of 3 million Smart TV households who watched at last five minutes, was 13% higher than the 5-day premiere of Disney+/Marvel’s Hawkeye, which was watched by 1.5M HHs from Nov. 24-28. Loki was the first prominent Disney+/Marvel series to drop on a Wednesday. That series still ranks as the highest 5-day premiere for a Disney+ series per Samba TV which clocked 2.5M U.S. households; Book of Boba Fett Ep. 1 pacing 32% behind it.”
