Dam-sel mentioned that Hulu offers us the first two episodes, which is all we've watched. Has not hooked me yet, but I am sure that like SRD's The Real Story or Seventh Decimate, early impressions do not reflect the depth of the story to come.

I suspect this two-episode release is a tease to encourage Disney subscriptions, but maybe more episodes will be forthcoming.

I am most fortunate my son got himself Disney, so I get to watch all the Star Wars and Marvel stuff.

Watched all but the season finale.
Andor is very good. The series does an excellent job of carrying over the look and feel of Rogue One. The series is well written, acted and directed. The narrative does follow the "slow burn" style of storytelling which can be uninteresting at times but what makes it worth watching to me is it's thoughtful, intelligent, competent filmmaking, and the opportunity to see the origins of the rebellion at the ground level is a welcome treat. It's not like the typically bright, colorful cotton candy Star Wars most people are accustomed to but there are still a number of very Star Wars moments in the series.

As far as Disney plus Star Wars goes I rate Andor up along with the Mandalorian as the best and far superior to Kenobi and light years ahead of the painful to watch Boba Fett dumpster fire.

It's definitely my favorite of the shows so far. And yes, it is really nice to see the beginnings of the Rebellion.

I haven't even noticed "slow burn" pacing. Not sure if that means I'm getting old.

Boba Fett started out with such promise, but boy it certainly did turn into a dumpster fire.

However, I freaking loved Kenobi, I rate that above The Mandalorian.

Hope to start Andor soon.

I liked Obi-Wan, (Agree about The Mandalorian, especially after S02) but this one didn't grab me much...maybe because, although I enjoyed Rogue One, I didn't even make the connection at first.

Finished Andor, and we thought it was great! We loved the prison episodes.
