i want a thread to talk about it and i'm too lazy to keep putting spoiler tags around everything in the Star Wars thread

Well DAMN Andor delivers so far.

― Ned Raggett, Thursday, 22 September 2022 06:26 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

yeah this is great

the policing aspect feels like oldschool brit procedural and i LUV it

also aesthetically- love the color pallete, all the browns & oranges… also it needs to be said that star wars universe outerwear is chef’s kiss always

― SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Thursday, 22 September 2022 07:53 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

Am saving the third episode for the weekend but yeah loving it so far.

The universe feels lived in and the characters for once appear to be driven by human-level motivations - misplaced ambition, jealousy, laziness, spur-of-the-moment thoughtlessness. People actually talking like people, instead of just delivering exposition. No one is just going round going from place to place completing RPG quests (which is what Obi-Wan/Mando sometimes felt like).

also hell yeah, blue ramen

Andor truly the Star Wars show for anyone who ever wanted a Star Wars without Jedi, lightsabers, action, cool spaceships, iconic designs, John Williams music, or things happening at all, but get really excited about scene after scene of intensely whispered exposition

big ACAB energy so far

are my eyes deceiving me or was the police bus thing that brought the cops down to the planetary surface the same sort of vehicle that the jawas bundled our droid friends into on tattooine? as if the jawas had found an old junked spaceship of this model and repurposed it into a sand crawler?

i wasn’t thrilled by the horizon zero dawn shit but at least it’s out of the way. that really could have all been told in a line or two. the way cas was “adopted” was fairly… horrific?! like okay maybe you’re right that he would have been in trouble or even killed later, but who put you in charge

― Tracer Hand, Sunday, 25 September 2022 01:11 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

Oh I very much like the idea that the 'adoption' wasn't nice, pleasant or even desired!

Mull of Kenari

― Stevolende, Sunday, 25 September 2022 08:49 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

Am at least semi enjoying this though am aware taht whatever background is being set is pretty temporary no matter how in depth it's being set up as so intrigues between side characters probably not as important as might seem. I take it we do know the ultimate end of the story arc anyway & it ain't no frog chorus. THough possibly set up to show attitudes to loyalty and a few other things. Though he do seem a tad shady and stuff.

Trying to work out why the kids clothing on Kenari looks so manufactured when they seem to have been returned to a primitive level though not sure how long before. THought clothing would be more natural/simple not as textured or complicatedly finished. KIds look more dressed than scrabbling by having to make clothing or whatever from local materials.

Is this like a footnote to a footnote if the main character is someone whose til now main arc was inside a film that sets up some of the action in one of the original films.

― Stevolende, Sunday, 25 September 2022 09:59 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

Yes definitely - backstory to the backstory.

Interesting point about the clothes. Maybe they’re still getting by on the remains of what the mining colony left (maybe 100 years earlier? Hard to tell)

I wonder if Dudley Do-Right policeman is going to “break good” at some point

― Tracer Hand, Sunday, 25 September 2022 10:05 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

The situation on Kenari was relatively recent. There’s that line in the third episode about how Cassian saw his father hanged by the imperials in the town square as a kid! The implication is that the adults were killed or were absent for other reasons.

I think the bouncing between his past and the present day sets up the parallel of circumstances molding his path. He didn’t choose to leave his planet but that became his life, much as he isn’t actively trying to become a rebel agent but he’s stuck with another foster parent figure again. Orphans make the best agents, you know.

I kind of hope they follow through on that, and his diminished sense of agency, as he gets groomed as a spy and assassin

― mh, Sunday, 25 September 2022 14:58 (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

(I mean, it seems incredibly likely they will with Gilroy reusing some of the backstory markers from his Bourne series screenplays)

xp I actually am glad after the last set of Star Wars shows that we're getting a bunch of new/different planets and ecosystems, especially after Boba Fett. (We got like, two or three newish locales on Obi-wan, but eh.) Even "new" Coruscant was fun to see.

i thought the same thing

yes his mom is great. strangely for such a diverse and motley set of beings she’s one of the few real “characters” in this show

i was psyched for the heist but now i’m very much enjoying the slow burn. “clem” a bit jumpy, not just a strong dude for us to identify with but a dude with problems. “we all have our own rebellion” - loved that.

will our double agent’s moment of sentimentality - allowing the men to watch the cosmic happening - come back to bite them? i don’t know but i loved that we got to see that little grin

― Tracer Hand, Friday, 7 October 2022 09:23 (two weeks ago) bookmarkflaglink

maybe didn't follow the plot but felt like that smile was showing that he played them, got them to think he was giving them what they wanted when really he cleared them out to not be paying attention during the heist or something?

I'm enjoying Ebon Moss Bachrach. I HATED him on Girls, where he played a truly odious character. Then when he showed up in the Bear I was like ugh this guy again, but then I was like well he's playing an asshole, do I hate the actor or just his characters? Then by the end of the Bear I was like, aw I like this guy, and now here he is again! And he's enjoyable. ANd I can erase his Girls character from my memory.

― dan selzer, Friday, 7 October 2022 18:05 (two weeks ago) bookmarkflaglink

I've had almost the same opinions as you regarding that actor; they did too good a job making him an asshole on Girls and it's taken a few years to rectify. He was also in one season of Damages

nerdy sidebar - i love the room interiors for a lot of their homes & meeting rooms, like the architectural details in mon mothma’s mansion or the interesting brick interiors of andor’s home or that 70’s looking pad of his girlfriend/not-girlfriend, and uptight-guy’s mom’s modular pod-apartment

i can’t say why exactly but it gives me a bit of a “bladerunner” echo.

and some of the music this latest episode - by the fantastic Nicholas Britell - used a lot of very Bladerunner-y synth textures. Such a wonderful series. The ground level Empire stuff (probe droids, TIES, stormtroopers) has rarely felt more ominous.

If you thought that the Mandalorian was essentially bad, is this good on a Mandalorian scale or on an objective scale?

I like this much more than the Mandalorian, it is a very different show

― Muad'Doob (Moodles), Thursday, 20 October 2022 22:28 (six days ago) bookmarkflaglink

it is much more focused on giving a glimpse into how normal people live in various parts of the galaxy, very subdued, much less action and heroics, although that stuff is in there for sure.

― Muad'Doob (Moodles), Thursday, 20 October 2022 22:33 (six days ago) bookmarkflaglink

andor is way more grounded in a lot of ways than mandalorian, it feels more like a gritty, modern type of spy movie that happens to be set in star wars world rather than the kind of epic space western like mando was

― terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 20 October 2022 22:40 (six days ago) bookmarkflaglink

but if you thought mando was essentially bad i can’t fully speak to whether you’d even enjoy andor

veg otm re the interiors. I also liked that wide shot of the Imperial cubicles, love this (and Rogue One’s) depiction of the Empire as essentially being run by a bunch of corporate stooges and horrible middle managers.

watched the new one last night and was thinking the same stuff about the production design and music. A lot of these star wars shows have felt kinda cheap...like expensive compared to a lot of tv shows, but budget compared to an actual movie, but the physical world building, the exteriors and interiors, vehicle design etc, on Andor has been really fantastic. I prefer this to the Mandalorian for sure. I skipped Boba and only watched one episode of Obi Wan.

― dan selzer, Friday, 21 October 2022 13:52 (five days ago) bookmarkflaglink

I think a big reason it looks so much realer is that they used the green screen superdome a lot less for this show. Or at least, that gave them an excuse to have less scenes of people standing around in the desert.

I keep hearing good things about "Andor," but I haven't watched anything post-Mando S2. Just kind of Star War'd out, I guess. (Also totally off the LotR and GoT trains, too, though more power to you folks invested.) But maybe I'll give it a shot, since we're between Marvel things. The praise seems similar to S1 of "Mando" - just a good show set in the Star Wars universe rather than some portentous fan service playing up/with mythology.

― Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 October 2022 14:24 (two days ago) bookmarkflaglink

Pretty much - it's a good show, a little elevated by the extra Star Wars mythology that it does touch and the action setpieces that finally happen

― Nhex, Monday, 24 October 2022 14:33 (two days ago) bookmarkflaglink

it ties in closer to the main Star Wars story than Mandolorian does because it's about the birth of the rebellion, but mostly avoids obvious fan service, most of the characters and settings are new, and there hasn't been any mention of jedi/sith stuff so far. It sidesteps the superhero aspects of Star Wars and focuses more on the human side of things.

― Muad'Doob (Moodles), Monday, 24 October 2022 14:40 (two days ago) bookmarkflaglink

I like the idea of the "rebel alliance" explicitly being a coalition of partisans and pro-republic politicians and aristocrats, as messy as that may be, playing out. The formal title of "Alliance to Restore the Republic" might be an interesting point in a future episode because it's been pretty strongly implied that some of the people involved hate the Empire but didn't necessarily have great faith in the Republic

We saw the first "Andor." I liked it, at times it sort of had "Blade Runner" vibes, but my daughter was very resistant and found the characters "boring" (which come to think of it is also very "Blade Runner").

damn i love this show. THIS IS THE REAL PREQUELS, PEOPLE.

instead of princesses and princes it's the story of labor camps, of construction workers, of kidnapped natives, of middle managers and despised sergeants. of plots in the workplace. of the obdurate details of enforcement and empire management. not just as backdrop or character detail but as the main subject. it's bloody-minded in its materialism. and unstintingly gloomy!

so this episode.. our rebellion poster couple has split up. but that's what happens in good dramas, the characters get faced with tremendously difficult decisions and we get to find out what's important to them and you're DAMN RIGHT that the rebellion is more important to... Cinta, okay i did have to go look that up.. than whatever is going on between her and.. Vel, yes i looked that one up too. now i have images in my head of what the actresses look like in normal clothes. but anyway. good.

the prison is WILD. how the fuck is he going to get out?

i enjoyed the hell out of how tense and awkward andor's introduction to the factory floor was. remember that hold-up with the irritated imperial support staff in the corridor? someone wasn't at their post? all that kerfuffle? i'm interested in why that scene was there. why do you need that scene? you could have tightened everything up by just getting andor into the fabrication room straight away. hands on his head, jabber poised to zap him, it's already tense. so why? i guess my answer would be that it does heighten the tension some, makes you say "get on with it", which gets you closer to what andor himself is feeling then. but it also shows how everybody kind of hates their job there, apart from a handful of sadists. they're all just annoyed and snappish and despite the gleaming ultra-sanitary meticulously conformist operation they're running, the human stuff doesn't really work right. the whole thing's idiotic of course. you'd get better work out of your laborers if you actually trained them properly at the beginning! your efficiency would improve if so many of them didn't kill themselves! etc etc but that's how repressive regimes have always done it. they don't know any other way.

still holding out for... Syril?? is that really his name? to break good. it looks like he's reached his limit with the Imperial paper-pushing department. he's going to do something loco next episode it's clear.

- storm troopers, the old school kind! they still strike instant terror in me

- even though it focuses on very different sorts of characters there is a star-warsness to certain themes: hope vs fear, techno-minimalism vs organic sloppiness, belief in a cause vs being a gun for hire

- fuckin GHOST DOG

i want to watch rogue one again now but i think it’s actually a pretty different beast? a “movie” with all the compressed energy and relentless pace that implies these days, as opposed to this which is paced more like a 70s tv miniseries

Such an amazing show. The factory floor introduction was intense.

Spencer Chow, Thursday, 27 October 2022 03:57 (four weeks ago) link

Out of the mouths of babes.

My takeaway from the holding-up bit where the guy wasn’t at his post was that Andor — as indicated brilliantly acted by Luna — is an extremely good observer. Not some super spy nonsense as such, just somebody who is good at thinking on his feet and knowing when to shut up (like does he even have ten lines this episode? astounding). My sense is that he was taking in a lot of quick details almost chaotically but is filing them away, as was more obviously hinted at with the sign-language sequence.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 27 October 2022 13:48 (four weeks ago) link

Yes. And his bewilderment at the assembly process was brilliant as well, it made me extremely anxious. But as you say possibly not as helpless as he seems - he’s filing things away for the future.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 27 October 2022 13:54 (four weeks ago) link

thx for starting a thread tracer!

reposting my thoughts:

new Andor episode great

the prison stuff gave me a “Ghosts…Of The Civil Dead” vibe but honestly it’s prob just bc its an all white future hell-prison

diego luna is so good, the transportation + arrival scenes he looked legitimately physically scared like he was going to puke at any moment, like when you are so afraid you’re involuntarily twitching

werewolves of laudanum (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 27 October 2022 14:23 (four weeks ago) link

xpost I think it's good to remember that at the start of the series he's already been established at someone who stole a high-level Imperial macguffin to begin with as well as searching around for his sister in skeevier/less 'safe' situations. It's not that he's James Bond as such, but someone who has some earned skills to start with; absolutely he's frustrated, overwhelmed and bewildered at being stuck where he is now on top of being scared he but clearly realizes this isn't the place for a vent or a whine. (It helps too that I think the character gets clearly established at only being easily conversational and earnest as such with people he's already known for years, thus the small circle of his Ferrix crew. Everyone else, he talks only when he has to, and usually only when he absolutely has to.)

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 27 October 2022 14:26 (four weeks ago) link

it was extraordinarily tense

you’re like “why is everyone taking off their shoes??” just pit-of-the-stomach horror vibes

and “why do those guards have such massive boots”?

the insta-pain device

the realisation of just how many poor fucks there are in this place

the gamification of work

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 27 October 2022 14:30 (four weeks ago) link

yeah Ned i rewatched the first few scenes of Rogue One last night and i forgot just how much of a “shoot first, talk later” guy he is. he’s from the Han Solo wing of life, in it for himself, ready to blast anything or anybody he needs to, but where Han could talk the ears off a rock, Andor just does his thing with minimal extras.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 27 October 2022 14:32 (four weeks ago) link

I think the whole "where is this person they're not at their post" is planting seeds/foreshadowing. . . just think at some point in this show he's gotta BREAK OUT OF THERE

Also thought the guards thing was to show how intense the security around the work is, and how the whole chain runs on fear and bullying. (at a time in the episode where it creates maximum anxiety for us!) Worked for me, as does pretty much everything in this outstanding show. It’s almost too good for Star Wars.

the characters for once appear to be driven by human-level motivations - misplaced ambition, jealousy, laziness, spur-of-the-moment thoughtlessness. People actually talking like people, instead of just delivering exposition.
So it's like not Star Wars?

Really I'm looking forward to watching the whole thing over Xmas. I didn't know what the heck was going on in the first episode and decided I should watch Rogue One again. I'll do that plus brace myself for human conversations.

I never found storm troopers scary in the originals, they looked slow and awkward in those white plastic suits. What was terrifying was the droid that almost chokes Cas out--how did they make the wrongness and un-human-ness of that badly proportioned robot SO CHILLING?!

The Ferrix wardribes--mwah. Skarsgard's outerwear in his off-planet buyer disguise, basically an American military parka as adopted by rebels everywhere--mwah! Everything being slate blue and orange--double mwah.

Skarsgard's failed negotiation with Forest Whitaker told us a lot about the precarity of the elements he's trying to bring together!! All crazy in their own way and each other's worst enemies...except for the Empire.

I really like it. Everything looks so good and not cheap or shoddy.

What was terrifying was the droid that almost chokes Cas out--how did they make the wrongness and un-human-ness of that badly proportioned robot SO CHILLING?!

I thought this bit was hilarious, because it deliberately makes you think of the same model Imperial droid that Cas owns (and reprogrammed) in Rogue One, except most definitely not as lovable or funny. kind of the opposite of the fan-servicey moments we usually get when we see a familiar character in these shows.  

show needs more aliens though. what, no twi'leks or rodians in imperial prison?

I hate Cyril's manipulative, grasping mom so much. I think that means she's a great character lol. You can really feel how growing up in her shadow, under her power, would mal-form you into something that would look unremarkable (family, loyalty, paying debts owed) but be so wrong inside.

How long is the series. I assumed it would be either 8 or 10 episodes judging from other things. So is the next one season finale and filled with cliffhangers or are things working up to a temporary at least denouement.
We do know the eventual end anyway already unless that had a miraculous intercession or something.

i’m PISSED that this was originally envisioned as five seasons, each covering a year’s worth of diegetic time, and the next four seasons are being squashed into one.. but with actors of this caliber (and demand) i guess it’s hard to get people to block out 5 years of their working life to something

Another fine example of this show only telling you what you need to know when you need to know it (and if they can get away with showing it in context, even better -- my moment from last night might have been how Genevieve O'Reilly said everything in the conversation with Vel with just a very subtle look on her face at one point).

I think the same snoozing-tentacles thing was in an early scene in Rogue One too - maybe when Jyn was in the prison transport truck.
Incidentally I assume Jyn isn't with Saw Gerrera because it's post whatever situation he abandoned her in. (I recently rewatched RO rather than having a deep knowledge of the lore.)
