Really enjoyed the most recent episode of Handmaid's Tale. They spent less time with dramatic close ups of Elisabeth Moss and plenty of sweaty close ups of Yvonne Strahovski moaning. Hubba hubba.

If I don't care for Star Wars, is it still amazing? For the record, I thought the Mandalorian was predictable and boring. Didn't watch past the first season.

I think it’s the most likely Star Wars show for you to enjoy. It’s not as episodic as The Mandalorian, but I’d say that’s the closest comparison. So hard to say, but if you watch the first 3-4 episodes and aren’t feeling it, I think you’d be safe to stop. Those should give you a pretty good idea.

I think it's a good show on it's own, not just as measured against Star Wars shows. The writing is great. The world-building and level of detail is just so cool and not something you typically see in SW canon. It also barely has any non-human characters. It's very adult.

Basically, Tony Girloy (who also did Rogue One) wanted to create a non-Star Wars-y show in the Star Wars universe. So if you're going to like anything Star Wars, this would be it.

Don't fully agree with Split. It is a little slower paced, but I would say that if you can make it to Episode 4 and are bought in enough, stick around until Episode 6, when it really picks up.

I heard not great things and don't really care for Ryan Murphy's stuff, so I stayed away.

I watched it…I enjoyed it while watching, it’s creepy, but after finishing it, I was a bit disappointed

Thanks gang. May have to check out Andor then. I always felt like Mandalorian was predictable with no real world building and scattershot all over the map episode to episode.

So, you're saying that you're The Watcher! :P I ended up watching it over the weekend. It pulled me in. The fact that it's based on a true story, actually two true stories combined into one, makes it all the creepier. Just did a little research on it.
