The writing is so bad that I think it must be done on purpose or something. There isn't a single likeable character, other than the guests like Bruce. Everyone else is a selfish piece of shit, or just a flat out idiot. Sidekick is OK.

There is just so much wrong with the writing that I could go on forever talking about every wrong thing.. Just thinking of the last episode annoys me though so I'll stop

The acting is actually totally fine so that may be why you like it. She Hulk is fine in human form, but the Hulk form is like 90's era quality CGI. The character is a horrible person though, and a complete fucking moron based on how she's written.

She Hulk's writing is nowhere close to award-winning, but I thought the episodes I've watched so far are fun and light-hearted. I agree that I enjoy the various cameos more than the main show itself -- Wong and Blonsky, in particular, have both been excellent. As an MCU fan, it is good to keep tabs on what other MCU characters are doing / will be doing too.

I stayed up to watch episode 1 of Andor last night, and I have to say I did not enjoy how the show was directed. The only 2 things I was able get out of the episode were:
Spoiler!


Maybe that was the goal the directors were aiming for? The acting and the re-creation of the SW universe were good, but I didn't quite enjoy that 1st episode thus far.

The thing that had me engaged with Andor after 1 episode was the set design and costuming. It had a very old school Star Wars look, like it was actually filmed around the time of the original trilogy. They hid the CGI very well most of the time. A few times it stood out but it was good overall. The actor who plays the villain is very good at the role.

Are the flashbacks supposed to be subtitled? Disney+ is usually good at using forced subs, but they didn't turn on so I assume we're just not supposedd to know exactly what they're saying.

Yeah, the set design and costuming were very well done in Andor, and now that you've mentioned it, I agree with you about how a lot of the scenes had the Episode IV - VI feel to it, probably more so with Episode IV than the subsequent two.

I had subtitle turned on, but the flashbacks were not meaningfully subtitles. At best, it indicates the speaking character's name and maybe a very brief description of what the person was actually doing --

eg. So-and-so named girl : [scolds Kazza]

I can obviously understand the gist of what was going on during those flashbacks, but I feel like I would be more into and appreciate those scenes more if there were actual subtitles being shown.

Iím pretty sure itís suppose to be that kind of campy, not serious tone about the writing as opposed to the typical try-hard stay in the marvel universe most of the shows are written around

Sure but for that you have Guardians, Ant Man, Thor, Loki, Spiderman... Even a lot of Dr Strange

They are really quite good at that campy goofball stuff. I do like it a lot better than the super serious stuff they do with Avengers.

I won't beat a dead horse from here... But it's so bad lol. OK done

It's more entertaining than the stuff in the past few years isn't really saying much though cause most of it has been pretty bad too imo. That said I've been watching She-Hulk as a put in the background and not pay attention show and so far I really don't care for it at all but since I'm putting zero investment into it its been fine in that regard.

There will be more episodes

They released it the same way a lot of these shows are released (Rings of Power for example). Throw out a few in the beginning then pivot to weekly episodes.

Andor is supposed to have 12 episodes in the first season, with a 2nd season coming later down the line as well. But then 2 seasons in total is it, as we all know Cassian died in Rogue One.

I actually find it mildly awkward that Diego Luna looks slightly but still noticeably older in Andor when Rogue One is supposed to happen 5 yrs after Andor LOL~
