“Convinced that anyone who finds #Andor boring just doesn’t have an attention span, the pace isn’t slow at all,” one tweeted.
While part of the internet raved about “Andor,” another part shared thoughts on some of the factors that determine a show’s success. The pacing was one of the talking points after three episodes premiered on Disney+ on September 21.
The official synopsis reads: “The Andor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover what he can make a difference. The series advances the story of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planet became involved. It is an era of peril, deceit, and intrigue that Cassian will embark on the path destined to transform him into a rebellious hero.”
Will the lack of aliens hurt ‘Andor’? Fans say: ‘Getting a bit boring without a single alien’
“I just finished the 3 episode debut of #Andor and I have to admit I wasn’t impressed at all with the first 2 episodes as both were very very slow and had little exposure but when episode 3 came around, caught it starts to develop the rhythm of everything. Curious to see what’s next,” one of the fans wrote. “Just finished watching #Andor. It definitely felt a bit slow until episode 3 where it picked up. The overall production quality of this series is insanely high. I hope every future Star Wars series has such high production quality. I’m looking forward to Episode 4!” Another tweet echoed.
“The reason Disney dropped three episodes of #Andor at the same time is probably because hardly anything happens in the first one. I haven’t seen the second one yet, but I wouldn’t doubt that it’s just as slow and unobtrusive,” reads one comment. “#Andor spoilers – – – – – – – – – just finished episode 3 and wowww. It was slow at first but the last episode was the best yet. Also, I love b2emo already!!” said one fan. “So, #Andor . Def a slow burn, but it’s set at an interesting point in the timeline. Things begin. Daddy Scarsgard! I recognized him immediately by his voice. How many times has Star Wars destroyed an indigenous culture?” opined one fan.
“I think ‘slow’ is being thrown around instead of ‘decompressed’. And I get it. I get what they mean by that. But you know full well they’re SO packed! Just because the events last a lot longer than in seedy star Wars doesn’t mean it drags on. This muuuuh . #Andor,” read one of the tweets. “Convinced that anyone who finds #Andor boring just doesn’t have an attention span, the pace isn’t slow at all,” it reads in a tweet, “If a ‘slow’ start is the price I have to pay for a great show to portray the universe it’s set in and build the chess pieces of the story. That’s a price I’m happy to pay.” .I’ll turn on #Andor .It’s the first time since MandoS2 that it’s worth subscribing to,” noted one of the comments.
