Re: Andor

having watched episode 3, can see why they decided to launch all 3 at once, with the intention we watch 3 episodes together back to back, like a feature length introduction.

Re: Andor

Yeah, I only watched the first episode last night and the cut to end credits made absolutely no sense at that point. There was no climax or suspense of any kind, beyond the subtly implied risk the boy was taking when leaving camp (and all the dialogue was left helpfully untranslated for no obvious reason, no doubt for some arty reason I haven’t yet thought of).

They seem to be adhering to 40-minute-ish episode lengths but also expecting us to go directly to the next one. I’ve seen other shows like this - the Netflix Marvel series had a tendency to just stop after about an hour whether they’d reached any sort of resolution or not. But in those cases they were always dropped in their entirety at launch. If Andor is going to have arbitrary episode end points once we get to the one episode per week phase, then it could get a bit annoying.

So far, the immersive aspect of the show is good. I’m enjoying seeing what the empire looks like when you go several rungs below the star destroyers and massed armies of stormtroopers. But to be worthy of the title, sooner or later there’s going to have to be some action, and not putting any worth the name in the first episode was a risky move.
