Television Review | Andor (Season 1)

I don't want every future Star Wars show to be like Andor, but I do want every future Star Wars show to have the same level of effort for excellence that Andor had. Andor is the present high water mark for Star Wars television, arguably for Star Wars generally, so I award the first season 10/10

Television Review | Tales of the Jedi

An enjoyable watch that will go over well with fans of The Clone Wars. Makes me want an entire Dooku series more than ever. The show itself is just okay, seeming like streaming catalog filler. 6/10

Television Review | Obi-Wan Kenobi

This show is sort of a reverse Solo, a television series that should have been a movie. If you’ve avoided the show due to bad word-of-mouth, I’d say give it a watch, expecting something a little small-scale but which builds every episode toward a satisfying finale. 7/10

Television Review | The Book of Boba Fett (Season 1)

Good, not great, but good. Treats the main character as a character, against the obvious direction such a show might take.
