Andor (No spoilers) (Off-Topic)

I've watched three episodes. No spoilers please.

It's terrific. Rogue One was my favorite Disney-era Star Wars film by far, so maybe it's not a surprise that I like this. Imagine that Star Wars had HBO-level writing. Not possible, you say. This might be the first Star Wars property that truly feels as if it's made by and for adults. (Empire was the most mature of the original trilogy.) That's not Star Wars, you say. Well, maybe it's not the one you've dreamt of, but it is the one I've dreamt of.

I'm a little shocked they were able to bring me back.


I've also only watched the first three episodes and have enjoyed it. Apparently, they are releasing the 12 episodes as four 3 episode arcs?

I've heard that, too. My plan is to watch them three at a time.


But, the first 10 minutes of episode 1 made me say "whoa now....Star Wars just got dark"

It's also an echo of the beginning of Rogue One. The Star Wars youtubers seem divided, but the broader critics seem to be digging it.

I love how much the creators trust the audience. Case in point: No subtitles for the flashback scenes on Kenari. You don't need them, and you don't get them.
