Journey Planet 69 – Andor 

The brilliance of Andor captured the imagination and excitement of many fans.

  1. I think I made it about half way through Andor. Episode seven or so. And for what it’s worth, I watched most of these first seven episodes at least two or three times each.

    I watched them repeatedly, because they failed to make any impression at all on me. It was the strangest thing. I’d watch an episode, and after it was over, I’d have no idea what it was about. I’d have to watch it again. Same result. If television can simulate Alzheimers, this was it.

    In the end, I gave it up. There was nothing interesting or distinctive, or meaningful. It was just dull and plodding, unlikeable uninteresting protagonists, stumbling through a vaguely gritty, vaguely gray world, against characters that might be disinterested adversaries.

    Apparently thought, it worked for other people. I’m glad for them.

  2. I thought Andor was fine/fun as long as I turned off the critical thinking part of my brain. But I’m a fan of grimdark fiction and Andor definitely had a darker plot.

    Regards,
