    Stellan Skarsgaard, Rebel Spymaster, really is this show's secret weapon.

    Everything more added to Cassian’s history along with that heartbreaking scene with his “mom” was great.

    80’s Miami planet is the best.

    SECURITY DROIDs, baby!

    Excellent follow up episode after the big heist last week. The world building with this series just keeps getting better and better

    Would be a damn shame if this series is overlooked come awards season when it comes to set & costume design. Also loving the soundtrack. Has such a synth heavy 80s vibe

    Practical clones are always awesome. Also, glad to see the remaining team members are going to stick around.

    Oh, and they lynched a black man. Always interesting to watch a show with such social commentary, to still have the POC's "adopted mom" being a white woman. :hehe:

    Love vacation world, both as a visually and tonally different environment than we tend to see and the way they used it to drive home that feeling of them being everywhere.

    Also, glad to see the surviving crew is sticking around as I figured they'd be tapping out right when I was actually getting interested in them.

    Oh my god they actually brought in Yularen, and he’s speaking Gilroy dialogue! And he’s played by the guy Bond shoots in the opening of Casino Royale!

    As a fan, I feel thoroughly serviced.

    The music that dropped sounded like a mix of Vice City and Drive... yet still very Star Wars - love.

    Enjoyed that episode. I'm liking the show more since the last 2.

    If security droid not friend, then why friend shaped?

    Hey all the whiney fanboys, you got your legacy character this week! :)

    I enjoy the show, but it's clearly not for everyone. They do a lot of setup and buildup and then wait until every third episode to rip off the bandaid and do something with action in it.

    I like seeing more of Coruscant and seeing all these small intricate decisions that lead to the broad strokes that happen in the films.

    Syril is the weak link of this show. His scenes are the worst, and I can't stand the character. He's like a petulant child who got tattled on in school and has a Woody Allen Theatre mother.

    7 was the resolution to last week's arc, so technically it was 1/2/3, and then this arc of 4/5/6/7.

    8/9/10 are of a piece... with 11/12 acting as a double finale and s2 hype - per Gilroy.

    Well that's how the pacing has come off thus far with 1-6. This felt less like a resolution and more like setting up for the next arc.

    If this was buildup I consider it more engaging and with more of an edge to some of the prior build up episodes.

    Nice little breather episode.

    I loved the conversation between Luthen and Mothma was spectacular. Hell, this was a great episode for Mon Mothma in general. "Find my politics too strong". I really didn't recognize Vel there for a minute. It was fun seeing Kleya outside of the shop.

    I am looking forward to the ISB stuff gaining traction. It has been nice as a bit of an example of the mundanity of the evil of the Empire. Yularen was a pleasent surprise. And it was fun seeing the bickering over jurisdiction. I do find Dedra Meero interesting. Looking forward to seeing her get out of the office.

    Star Wars business suits are funny. And oddly, I have seen those designs rather recently in other media.

    I love what they've done with the Security Droids since their introduction in Rogue One. We all love K-2SO, but ever since, they have moved to make the Security Droids down right menacing when they show up.

    B2EMO running up to Cassian's leg was adorable.

    And as fun as the Miami planet was, there is something very, wonderfully Imperial about it being an entirely artificial creation. No real beach, but steps of concrete.

    And Gilroy continues to say ACAB, respect.

    Another incredible episode, loved that scene with Mothma and her old friend.

    Gilory is just making threes at this point.

    That Luthen/Mothma scene.

    That Mothma party scene.

    That Cassian/Marva scene.

    That resort planet.

    Loved this ep. This whole series definitely needs more of the machinations on Coruscant.

    Another lovely episode. This series as a whole has been a lot of fun and I can see myself enjoying it even more when bingeing. Seems like it isn't making a lot of noise for Disney+ yet, but with the second season confirmed, I'm not at all worried. This is a show which will have an audience that grows over time.

    Andor arrested while just picking up munchies (did you catch that list) for some fine hook-up he just met, has got to be the absolute most authentic and endearing character low, you will ever see in the SWU. [​IMG]

    Was he high? He seemed out of it and tripping on the pier. Like he just took some deathsticks.
