Star Wars: Andor

What was incoherent or irrelevant? It all informs us of where Cassian came from and what he's about. He doesn't need these things to feel bad about leaving Maarva or caring deeply about Maarva, but they do give us an expanded context about their relationship, who they were, and why they feel the way they feel. They are hardly irrelevant.

And it's okay for some things to not be resolved. If anything, it adds to the realism of the entire situation: sometimes life interrupts what you want to do and changes everything. Cass killed a person, and that changed everything about where he was and where he was going; that doesn't mean it wasn't meaningful, it just means that he hasn't been able to get back to it. Perhaps he never gets back to it, but that doesn't make it irrelevant, it just means his life has changed in such a way that he can't or he doesn't desire to.
I imagine that at some point in Season 2, it will become a thing again.

If the arcs that are mentioned above are correct - with the 4 years being covered by 3 ep stories each, then I imagine that one of those four years will resolve this.

I do kinda like this plan though. Each year is sort of a mini-movie - more or less a 90 minute movie leading up to the movie. Very cool idea.

I really do not like plot threads that are unresolved at the end of a season. Because frankly, cancelation is more probable than renewal, circumstances can force cast changes, and we know from experience that some plot threads simply get forgotten about.

I learned nerd for this.
The first two episodes are available on Hulu for a limited time. This is a chance for those without Disney + to check it out.
 





Odd choice for a show that doesn't get interesting until episode 3.

I think it's interesting before then because the build it good, but Episode 3 is so important because build is nothing without execution. Episode 3 shows they can execute on the world they are building and makes everything work. It's a weird decision, and I wonder if it is somehow influenced by TV run times (I thought I heard they were going to run it on ABC and FX as well). Maybe they'll run 3-4 as a pair?

Great episode. So well written.

I expected a lot more of the senator's story.... And the two women rebels didn't really do anything the last few episodes.
 





I can't remember seeing this posted previously, but perhaps I missed it. Someone pieced together the music from the opening credits and turns out that it's the funeral march.
I noticed that - the opening music is pretty clearly funerial anyway. Which makes sense, since we know Andor dies.

I came across this compilation of visuals from Andor the other day. Really emphasises how beautiful this series is.

Heh, watched that and didn't realize just how much time we spend looking at the back of people's heads. :D

But, man, that is pretty. Say what you like about Star Wars - some of it is good, some of it is bad, but man, ALL of it is achingly pretty.

Apart from the last couple of action shots, that fan intro does an excellent job of making it look like a show with a 1970s BBC budget: all story and acting, no sets or effects (or at least nothing that couldn't be filmed in an old quarry or using a polystyrene model).

Reminded me more of things like "Buck Rogers" and "Genesis 2."


EDIT Anyone recognize the name of the lead character from another, later Roddenberry spawned project?
