    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Needs more Werner Herzog and Carl Weathers casting, but this is on the right track.

    We care because we used to play with Boba Fett action figures.

    I turned it off as soon as Boba Fett, the most famous bounty hunter of all time, said "I'm not a bounty hunter."

    I'm just spitballing...control of the underworld that stems from Tatooine. Stakes...wealth and power, I guess. Why do we care, why did we care about the Sopranos? That was basically Jabba's role, wasn't it? That took place in basically a tri-state area. I could see a mob show set in the tri-sector SW universe be cool. Maybe not, I don't know, I'm not defending it, I don't know whats going on with it. I was never that jacked up about Boba Fett when I was a kid, even being a ridiculous SW fan. Hell I didn't even think he was that cool until the Clones Wars cartoon, there he stood out way more than the movies.

    Sopranos had actual characters. I'm not even sure what this has other than filler.

    You very well may be right.

    We'll see what this does. If it's serialized like Mandalorian, or a little more focused.

    I will say that the Mandalorian, despite the serialized nature, has actually made some neat characters that I'd like to see again. I wouldn't expect something grandiose to Sopranos-Wire scale.

    Pinhead's in this?? What a crossover! Disney is really pulling out all the stops.

    Every godforsaken, clumsily-plotted, thrills-deprived scene in this is mere filler leading up to, wait for it, [
    ] And it's literally the easiest scene for the makers to get right. Revenge of the Sith was the best prequel because of how closely it leads up to A New Hope. What they don't get right, what they should have gotten right is most everything prior to the big fight. That was the challenging part, that was the part that required actual inspiration and strong writing. Oh there are some good bits, like the casting of young Leia, and some of the nods to the original trilogy are cool like when the star destroyer is chasing the good guys, the music seems a carbon copy of a similar scene in the Empire Strikes Back. Although that's lazy too in a way.

    It's truly hilarious how Obi-Wan manages to [
    ] And not because that scene in itself couldn't be plausible, but because about 10 minutes earlier, when our heroes are discussing options, the base is made out to be some absolutely impregnable, insanely-difficult-to-invade stronghold. Compounding matters is that at 2 separate locations the character called Tala is appealing to the ridiculous dumbness of the bad guys and succeeds. [
    ]

    Christensen's return to the franchise? Oversold. He adds to that final duel, no question, but it's the lighting, MacGregor, the make-up, the decision to criss-cross Vader's voice with Anakin's that lends that scene an eerie, somewhat haunting quality.

    Andor is the best piece of Star Wars media we've gotten in years and years. I'm flabbergasted how good this shit is. The writing, the acting, the world-building, the execution of it all--it's just walloping. It's so confident, so pleasing, so rousing. Give the showrunners any and all the SW projects they want.

    I agree with this.

    We've seen four episodes and it's great. It's everything I wanted Rogue One to be, and the rest of SW properties to continue, instead of diving into cheap memberberries. Plenty of fresh lore, filling in the gaps and expanding the universe, and all the references and mentions of things we know are mostly in passing and not essential.

    I think Rogue One is improving in the rear-view even more with Andor.
