Then, they trade stories of the various animated Star Wars series they’re watching off the clock. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback on Andor that came in after the Season Wrap-up podcast.

With one episode left the stage is set for an incredible season finale. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback.
Due to popular demand, we decided to cover Andor for you. Disney+ has both delivered and disappointed on the Star Wars front. But could this be the Star Wars shows we have been waiting for? Did Andor push Jim over the edge? Find out in this episode of Off the Clock.

The season finale of The Book of Boba Fett didn’t exactly wow us despite a near-hour-long action sequence that includes pretty much every character that has ever appeared on screen in Star Wars or any other cinematic universe. (I think Goofy is even in the background somewhere.) Join us for a discussion about what worked and what didn’t, but if you’re a big fan of what’s been happening on Book of Boba this season… maybe skip this one.
Come with us on a journey to glimpse the elusive creature known as the “Boba Fett”. Together, we will take to the sands of Tatooine, venturing into its natural habitat to catch a sight more rare than a hope chest full of spice. Be sure to gaze upon it only briefly however, for the Boba Fett is a timid and skittish creature which can be easily startled, retreating back into its hiding hole.
The Book of Boba Fett Chapter 5: Return of the Mandalorian marks a return to form, but we’re beginning to think that’s because The Mandalorian is the new “coolest character” in Star Wars, as Boba Fett is completely absent from his own show this week. We’re also treated to a hot rod that puts the modders mopeds to shame in an excellent cameo from the prequels.
