It’s going to be a long wait till Season 2.
Andor’s grounded study in radicalization is truly astounding. That it shows that radicalization from both sides, Andor’s slow induction into the Rebellion and Syril’s allegiance to the Empire. But equally important is Wilmon, the collateral damage of these two forces pulling against one another and how he too is… Read more
I think Star Wars can and some of it should be for kids and we should let kids have it but it can also be for adults. I think the only real problem is when those of us who’ve been there since before A New Hope was called A New Hope declare it’s not for kids we’re robbing kids of their chance to enjoy it. Read more
I love the fact that the plans against Andor fail because, no matter how important the dead may be, he prioritizes the living friend over deceased family when push comes to shove.
I think that just goes to show you that if you have good writing then spoilers (in this case, knowing he escapes) don’t really matter as to your enjoyment. Knowing a spoiler likely only affects your enjoyment of a crappy product.
I feel so much more connected to the Rebel Alliance’s cause in this series than I ever did in the Original Trilogy. Kemik and Maarva’s speeches were nothing short of perfect.
And when you think about it, finding the smallest thread of hope to hold onto is in this whole saga’s DNA. Cassian becoming inspired, leading… Read more
I know there are some people who just don’t seem to have the patience for it, but the very fact that a lot of the show is so slow and deliberate makes those moments where the tension is released so much more impactful than when everything’s cranked up to the maximum all the time. The heist, the prison break, and the… Read more
I saw EpIV at 6, and EpV at 9 etc and I’ve always felt that Star Wars was capable of ‘growing up’ with me...as selfish as that sounds.
Parts of Ep VI were more mature, balanced with the Ewoks etc but I thought that the future of Star Wars, esp the earlier episodes could really delve into some genuinely mature, complex… Read more
Andor was fantastic, such a vast improvement over Book of Boba and Obi-Wan, it didn’t just feel like wanky fan-service nonsense, there was a real story with real heart and real characters.
The great thing about Andor is that you could change the setting to WW2 Europe, change Galactic Empire to the Nazis and the Rebels to the French Resistance and you’d still basically have the same story. The Star Wars stuff is just set dressing. In a way it’s a lot closer to what George Lucas did with the original Star… Read more
Oh man that's actually perfect. People got played by Agnes and Bohner so Plaza waltzes in playing the exact same character thanks to Wanda's fuckin with the multiverse.
