Allowing for a bigger story arc across several season/slower pace, I'm still liking it. Feels a bit more raw and real to me.

I was only able to watch episode 6 just last night and there it was; the pew pew!  8)

I really liked the episode; the TIEs were finally show on their docking arms, and that really struck a chord in this old TIE-Fighter player  :D

The big shootout just goes to show that, Stormtrooper armor (helmet) needs a serious upgrade, they can't see anything.  The soldiers were hitting things without much trouble.  Stormtrooper would have bee pew pewing all over the place and would have hit nothing.

@bandit86 I suspect if/when we eventually see Stormtroopers in Andor, they'll be a bit more fearsome than in most other star wars media.

Another good episode  8)

I was a bit disappointed there wasn’t more action last week but I’m really enjoying the story telling of the ‘slower’ episodes.

Some really good scenes of Coruscant as well. Wouldn’t be that hard to do a gaming table with the main walkways, bridges and balconies on the same level and a few brutalist facades on the table edges…

Another enjoyable episode. It's good to see how the Empire effects the person on the street and makes a change from the 'Pew, pew' of other Star Wars shows.

Don't forget Tales of the Jedi is now out as well.

I find it even more appealing to see that Luthen is willing to ignite the spark of a rioting rebellion by the idea to put pressure on the Empire to make the people on the street suffer even more. This makes him much more believable as a political actor. I really don't like him!  :D

It’s definitely more ‘real’ than other Star Wars shows  8)

So next week is the break out episode. Looking forward to seeing how they make it happen.

I also think that Syril Karn (the ex-security officer who’s now stuck in an office job) will probably turn into what he hates. Trying to find Cassian he’ll have to go behind the ISB’s back and break the rules.

Great rpg inspiration as well (which we’ll hopefully be starting up again in the new year).

Tales of the Jedi was fun and the last minute or two of the last episode was potentially a good indicator of the tone that the Asoka series will take  8)

Just seen it described as 'Blake's 7 with a humungous budget' which, sort of, works.....

I can see that.

Luckily no annoying super AI though  :D

And last night I mispronounced Mon Mothma as Mon Mothra. Again.  lol
