    Well the death star is a giant rock breaking minning laser.....from a certain point of view.
    I think this will be explained later on. My guess is republic false flag shenanigans.

    Wipe the population out to restart minning operation and blame it on the CIS. But clearly something went wrong.

    Same. The commentary around Andor vs. Kenobi is tiresome, as are the vast majority of talking points over the Andor series. Like "this is Star Wars grown up," as if Empire Strikes Back or Rogue One don't count. "This canonizes sex" as if ROTS doesn't count. "Shit is now canon," as if swearing was a new thing to Star Wars. "This is the best Star Wars show and saves Disney Star Wars" as if Mandalorian is no longer exists.

    As for the show itself, I'm in definite wait and see mode.

    but this show is already leagues better than The Mandalorian, which is insanely overrated and mediocre!

    I can't imagine that will happen.


    Please god, no. Leave that shit to Favreau and Filoni.


    Heh. Indeed.

    I will agree that I find the Mandalorian being overrated, but the way I see individuals fawning over Andor like it saved Disney Star Wars as if the Mandalorian no longer exists, when it was touted as being the exact same thing when it first debuted. It's absurdist claims like this that drive me nuts. I'm glad people like Andor, and I'm glad many are getting the Star Wars series they (apparently) always wanted. But, what I'm seeing doesn't feel all that different from Star Wars in various forms that has come before.

    I don't think anything saved Star Wars because it didn't need saving, it was doing fine.

    I agree, but this is what I see and I'm just going...I don't know. I just shake my head. Obi-Wan looked cheap? Ok then.

    This kind of polarisation always happen in franchises with every new show. We're just seeing it a lot now, because Marvel and Star Wars are dropping new stuff twice a year, or is it more already? Not to mention new Star Trek shows happened quite fast after each other in just a few years. Supernatural is getting a spin off quite fast after its last episode.

    So ofcourse we're going to get hugely divided opinions. What I find weird is how people just shows after a few episodes. One reviewer I read said the first three felt a bit too dragged out, untill he saw the fourth and understood why the three first ones needed to do a lot of set up.

    I haven't seen Andor yet, this sunday is lazy sunday where I'll spend the afternoon binging all three episodes. All I know is I'm very curious

    It does and the talking points are very repetitive and reminiscent of Rogue One and Mandalorian, and even Clone Wars to a degree (that show got dark a lot. You know, for kids!). The larger thing is this idea that Andor is doing some new in regards to Star Wars. It's really not. It is quite interesting in terms of the world building (I'm only one episode in) but it does the the OT did well which was drop in to a story already in progress and trust the audience to pick up on context clues to understand the world.

    The biggest weird one that stood out to me was a reaction of "Sex is canon now." It's like...ugh, no. Are we 15 years old as a fandom, get all atwitter over swear words and implied sex? :wtf:

    Well, this was the weakest start of any SW series since Resistance imo. Getting the first 3 episodes did help though. I simply hope there are no more episodes like the first one that pop up in any given week... unless they're part of another 3 episode release like we got this week. The third episode was quite good, helped tie things together, and does make me look forward to the next ep.

    Fantastic work. Beautifully shot, the framing, editing, music, acting, writing. It actually felt like the show was made by people who care about the art and craft rather than just getting it done in any ole way.
    Parts of it gave me Blade Runner vibes, parts of it some old war movies. I really started to get into it by the 3rd episode when everything started coming together. I was actually chuckling from how much I was enjoying it.
    If only all of Star Wars could be handled with as much care as this show...

    If that makes you feel old imagine me seeing someone born in the 90's talking about feeling old. I was in junior high school in 1991.:)

    Going to work makes me feel old these days realizing there are some employees there now who were born the year I started working for the company.

    Yup I can understand that. We hired some "kids" recently at my job. They were 8 years old when I started at the company. I was 26 then. I'm 43 now at the same job.
