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.

Kim Renfro, entertainment reporter for Insider and co-host of A Cast of Kings joins A.Ron to talk about the book reader perspective on this season of HOTD.

David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 9 of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. Unlike Cassian, we’re hoping someone is listening to our scene-by-scene breakdown, our short lore segment on Saw Gerrera, and a transmission of listener feedback.

It was a tale of two houses, one Green and the other Black. To our delight, the GOT universe made a triumphant return to the small screen. From enormous time jumps, rotating cast members, and a great expansion on lore, I think we can agree the season pulled off some impressive plays. As we eagerly await the next season, let’s dive back into the first once again.
