Wow, it’s been quite an adventure of sci-fi and fantasy television for the last couple of months. Andor is the last of the late-summer premiering series to enjoy and sadly, it’s coming to an end.
This series has been absolutely fantastic from start to finish, its slow-burn method of storytelling transforming into something that will be regarded as a highlight of the franchise for many years to come.
I think the thing I like the most about Andor is that it feels like a Star Wars novel brought to life. The way this story has developed and the amount of characters we’ve gotten a chance to follow and become invested in is something we’ve never had in this franchise. There are so many storylines happening at once, each with its own level of depth, that I’m always in awe at how the writers have managed to juggle these stories with such cleverness.
It’s especially impressive when comparing it to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power which also had a lot of characters, hence a lot of storylines, that sometimes felt tedious to follow.
I can’t praise Tony Gilroy enough for what he’s given us with Rogue One and now Andor. As someone who has always wanted a story with a darker edge these two installments are not only up my alley but extraordinarily enjoyable.
I’m so excited for the Emmys season next year because Andor deserves to be recognized for its incredible storytelling. Like The Mandalorian, this is another Emmy-nominated worthy series and if it doesn’t get nominated for Best Drama I’m going to be very, very disappointed.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
