“I have not watched a Star Wars series this incredibly gripping since the first season of The Mandalorian and that show took the world by storm. Let’s see what Andor does!”
There are the obvious favorites for the greatest Star Wars movie; The Empire Strikes Back, A New Hope, and even for some, Revenge of the Sith or The Last Jedi. Rogue One, however, is my favorite Star Wars movie because it is something none of the other Star Wars movies are: unabashedly grim. It’s gritty, it’s serious, it’s dark, and the lack of magical Jedi/heroes with grand destinies set up for them is refreshing.
Andor is already shaping up to be just like Rogue One. A story about ordinary people choosing to fight for what’s right. The first episode starts beautifully with an entrancing set that instantly sucks you in. From there, the story continues albeit a little slowly with various characters being introduced and storylines being set up.
The second episode is a little shorter and a little more interesting as the storyline continues to unfold. It’s the third episode, however, where things really start to get interesting. The snowball effect begins and by the episode’s conclusion, I had chills all over.
Andor is refreshing already because it is so well-written. The conversations are gripping, the various storylines transpiring at once are interesting, and the world feels so lived in and incredibly detailed. I can’t express enough how excited I am for this series, where it will take us, and how it will only make Rogue One even better.
There’s so much more I could say but for now, I’ll leave it at this. I have not watched a Star Wars series this incredibly gripping since the first season of The Mandalorian and that show took the world by storm. Let’s see what Andor does.
