I do have a slight question about why the bloke from the crashed spaceship was playing dead in the first place, but that was a minor quibble.

It was probably either that he woke up when she prowled past him or he heard them coming and played dead until the opportune moment.

I think it was great to see more of the dark underside of the Star Wars universe. And visually the show is awesome.

But otherwise I found it quite boring. Nothing really happens. And, for me, it suffers from the same as Rogue one (and the prequels for that matter). I cannot really connect to the main character because I know how it is ending.

I read that as he had passed out, and came to after she'd passed by?

Yeah, like I said, just a minor quibble. It didn't spoil the episode, it just felt like it was plugged in there so that "action happened". I'd rather have seen them scavenging the ship for stuff, finding a prisoner they could release, that sort of thing.

I can't remember where that scene left off, but hopefully there will be more than just carrying the body back to camp.

Ep 4 was another slow burn but an enjoyable one. Again, great scene setting and itís interesting to hear mainly uk accents in a Star Wars production  lol

I see that it has potential, but, man, things are moving slowly. My wife told me that she's out after yesterday's episode.
Things need to move a bit faster. More cloak and dagger and less brooding :)

Not going to read the thread too deep so as to avoid spoilers, but I watched the first episode yesterday and was very impressed.  Diego really nails what I imagine would be the look and mannerism of someone living in the margins under a totalitarian state and slowly losing their humanity.  The dead eyes and weary face. Dang.   

My wife was turned off by what she saw as some of the CW'ish (teen drama) style of the quasi-love-triangle dialogue, but I'm hoping to win her back with later episodes.

Coco-pops and blue milk. Genius  lol

I was hoping for some action this week but I still enjoyed it. Plenty to look out for in the various settings  8)

I've been on holiday the last couple of weeks and slowly playing catch-up (upto episode 3 now). If I didn't know better I'd say this was not Star Wars, but I'm hooked by it. Nice to say some throwbacks to the 70s production era of the original film - payphones etc?

Reminds a lot of 'Mega-City Undercover' books from Judge Dredd.

Edit - my only (minor) negative has been a case of spot and name the British actor! That's Trevor from Eastenders, that's Mr Magpie from Dr Who, oh there's Fiona Shaw! As I say, only a minor nit.

is it the prelude to "Rogue One"? Looks very good.

Yes.  It is slated to be two seasons long.  S1 starts 5 years prior to R1, and S2 ends just prior to R1.

I love Rogue One and Andor has the same vibe.
But it needs more action.
 Other than a little action in episode 1 and the fight in episode 3,
very little else.
Hope episode 6 is exciting.
Other than the Mandalorian all three live Star Wars series lack action.
With Mando, it seemed that there was some type of action in every show.
To me that is exciting and so fun to watch.

The latest episode is a masterclass in building tension.  I also love we're getting lower-level bad guys rather than the elite Stormtroopers all the time, and getting a pretty good look at them too.

Yes, the series definitely feels like it's building up to a big climax, and I've been looking forward to new episodes with more urgency than to those of Rings of Power  (although later episodes there have been improving).

But all in all, I do like Andor, specifically because it's about the lower level of players...

Enjoyed this one as well but I was expecting more action but thatís just me wanting all the pew pew pew  lol

Itíll be interesting to see what the next three bring (as itís being done in mini-runs) and how it plays with the overall galactic story arc.
