If you thought episode 3 was good, episode 4 is even better. Not in action, but in drama and intrigue. So many lies, so much backstabbing and machinations going on. The Empire is evident now. "Andor", unlike other shows, even the movies, is setting up the Empire to finally be seen as highly efficient and intimidating, much fear and gravity in the nascent rebels in what they're undertaking. The writing is so damn good. The story is unfurling so well, onion skin after onion skin being peeled after each episode. The first three episodes were a big introduction of backstory, so kind of slow with all the flashbacks, tho still enjoyable if you can get into that kind of thing too rather than just flash-bang action. Now episode 4 starts a new chapter of three episodes, a next higher gear of story unfolding. I can already envision how tensions and action will keep increasing and deepening as season 1 evolves.

Really enjoying this. Excellent acting all around. Love the pacing. This is an adult Star Wars show. Kids are going to be bored out of their minds.

Cast is great - took me a minute to realize who the blond rebel is - The Waif!

Is that when you burn your way through a Quibi series all at once?

Who knew a Star Wars political thriller would ever exist? Excellent!

How does a show fly by so fast without any action at all? Just incredible performances by everyone all around. I'm curious to see where Karn goes from here, does he go all nuts and find a way to get to Andor or does he flip (Empire pretty much made him obsolete)??

Just so well made, the pacing, the acting... it's head and shoulders above the last SW show in every category.(yes I will continue to bash it when I can) Loved the return to Courscant and the simplicity of the sets/shots.

Not much action, but this series and the production value is just so damn impressive, Iím not even bored.

Iím always down for a good heist.

The music has Ozark vibes, enjoying it.
