Andor is now out on Disney Plus with its first three episodes which has seen interesting responses from the fan base.
Some fans love the show while some others are still on the fence.
The Andor Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score reflects that notion as it isn’t holding up to the fan-favorite The Mandalorian.
Andor currently has a Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score of 80% while The Mandalorian comes in at a 92%.
Star Wars fans like Rogue One better than Andor so far
The good news for Andor is that it is higher than Obi-Wan (64% Audience Score) and of course higher than Boba Fett (56%).
What is also interesting is that Andor has a lower Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score than Rogue One, which comes in at 86%, so again, it seems as if Star Wars fans are on the fence.
Why are they on the fence?
The first three episodes of Andor are a slow burn, and I would actually argue it is hard to review them as it seems the series is leading to a big payoff with its 12 episodes, so assuming that happens, those first rather lackluster three episodes will be looked back as actually being really good.
Of course, we don’t know if that is going to happen, so as I said in my review, I judged those three episodes as three episodes and not an entire series. I actually think they should have released those three episodes as one extended episode.
What I am afraid of happening is that the entire show will just be about Cassian Andor escaping various scenarios, and guess what the payoff is? Watch Rogue One. Let’s hope that’s not what his happening.
