You can watch The Book of Boba Fett episode 5 right now, and we're hoping this one improves things a bit. While a war is brewing for Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, online sentiment about the show continues to sour. Meanwhile, some are fixated on the tiny Book of Boba Fett mistake caught on TikTok.

The Book of Boba Fett episode 5 date and time and more

Release time and date: 3 a.m. ET today (January 26)
Cast: Temuera Morrison, Ming-Na Wen
Showrunners: Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez
Total episodes: 7

Now that we've gotten Shand's backstory out of the way, maybe we're free of the flashback-assisted narrative, which has arguably weighed The Book of Boba Fett down dramatically. 

Hopefully, the story of Fett discovering Shand left for dead will help make the upcoming episodes more dramatic. One would hope their bond is now something the show is more comfortable playing off of. 

Fortunately, the end of the last episode teased the Mandalorian's return — and the early The Book of Boba Fett episode 5 fan reactions seem to be a lot more positive than before (even if it feels like a different show). We're hoping that he and the incoming war between Fett and Pyke’s syndicate bring this show to a boil. Here's everything you need to know about watching The Book of Boba Fett episode 5.
