To be honest, Andor Season 1 Ep 4 triggered us greatly. What a fucking waste of time and money! Like the first 3 instalments, this episode was boring. Nothing happened. As far as the ‘plot’ is concerned, Cassian Andor joins a rebel mission to attack an imperial garrison and that was basically it! Set-up upon set-up. We learned that the entire previous set-up of the stolen imperial device was Luthen’s test to determine if Andor would be suitable for the mission. Seriously? WTF.
Sure, defenders will go on about how this series is a ‘slowburn’ of how the tone and atmosphere of portrayal the everyday lives in the Star Wars universe is compelling when it is not. What it is, is BORING! Who cares about the inner workings of imperial office politics and the political ambitions of this female officer Dedra, another pointless and irrelevant character whom we are not interested in whatsoever! And of course, we get the meaningless background of Mon Mothma (a token rebellion leader from the original trilogy) – really, do we give a fuck about her marital issues? Nope.
Andor Season 1 Ep 4 demonstrates once more that Disney Star Wars is almost a complete shitshow (The Mandalorian, being the only saving grace). Avoid at all costs!
Now streaming on Disney+.
