Darth Vader would be pleased with our amount of faith in this show. Andor has its finger on the pulse of a rebellion with grounded characters, high stakes, and cool new ships. Get Jim and A.Ron’s overall impressions and deep dives for the Star Wars show we have been waiting for.
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 11 of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. After an emotional recap of the events on Ferrix and Coruscant, they discuss one of the hottest topics in the galaxy: do we want a Jedi in Andor, and will we get one? With one episode left the stage is set for an incredible season finale. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback.
Due to popular demand, we decided to cover Andor for you. Disney+ has both delivered and disappointed on the Star Wars front. But could this be the Star Wars shows we have been waiting for? Did Andor push Jim over the edge? Find out in this episode of Off the Clock.
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 7: Announcement of Star Wars: Andor on Disney+. They marvel at how good an entire place setting episode can actually be. Then, they debate the best scene of the episode: Mon Mothma’s cocktail party, Cassian and Maarva’s conversation or Dedra Meero having her integrity publicly ventilated.
David and John discuss the first six episodes of the Star Wars Disney+ series Andor. They dive into Cassian Andor’s past, his relationships, and his motivations. Is Cassian his own worst enemy? Is Star Wars best served as a heist? Will Luthen tell us his secret to quality wig making? Find out this and more on this episode.
The season finale of The Book of Boba Fett didn’t exactly wow us despite a near-hour-long action sequence that includes pretty much every character that has ever appeared on screen in Star Wars or any other cinematic universe. (I think Goofy is even in the background somewhere.) Join us for a discussion about what worked and what didn’t, but if you’re a big fan of what’s been happening on Book of Boba this season… maybe skip this one.
Come with us on a journey to glimpse the elusive creature known as the “Boba Fett”. Together, we will take to the sands of Tatooine, venturing into its natural habitat to catch a sight more rare than a hope chest full of spice. Be sure to gaze upon it only briefly however, for the Boba Fett is a timid and skittish creature which can be easily startled, retreating back into its hiding hole.
The Book of Boba Fett Chapter 5: Return of the Mandalorian marks a return to form, but we’re beginning to think that’s because The Mandalorian is the new “coolest character” in Star Wars, as Boba Fett is completely absent from his own show this week. We’re also treated to a hot rod that puts the modders mopeds to shame in an excellent cameo from the prequels.
This episode made Boba Fett look like a real buffoon. Unfortunately, that’s not our recollection of the character from the original series and there are no number of “flashbactas” that can make us ok with it. Join us for the episode for some talk about what didn’t work and why.
The obligatory action scene this week is a real disappointment but the rest of the episode held up pretty well. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on The Book of Boba Fett’s third chapter, The Streets of Mos Espa.
