While one section of the internet was raving about 'Andor', there was another section that shared thoughts on some of the factors that determine a show's success. The pacing was one of the discussion points after the three-episode premiere in Disney+ on September 21.

The official synopsis reads, "The Andor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero."

'Andor' fan review: Twitter calls Diego Luna's spy thriller 'Sensational and brilliant'

"Just finished the 3 episode debut of #Andor & I have to admit I wasn’t atall impressed with the first two episodes as both were very, very slow with little exposition but by the time episode 3 comes around, it started to get into the rhythm of it all. Curious to see what’s next" one of the fans wrote. "Just got done watching #Andor It definitely felt a bit slow until episode 3 where it picked up. The overall production quality of this show is insanely high. I hope every Star Wars series moving forward has this high of production quality. Looking forward to episode 4!" another tweet echoed.

"The reason that Disney dropped three episodes of #Andor simultaneously is probably because barely anything happens in the first one. Haven’t watched the second yet, but I wouldn’t doubt that it’s just as slow and unremarkable," a comment said. "#Andor   spoilers - - - - - - - - - just finished the 3rd episode and wowww. it was slow at first but the last episode was the best so far. also i love b2emo already!!" a fan said. "So, #Andor . Def a slow burn, but it's set at an interesting point in the timeline. Things beginning. Daddy Skarsgard! Recognized him from his voice right away. How many times has Star Wars destroyed an indigenous culture?" a fan opined.

"I think “slow” is being thrown around in place of “decompressed.” And I get it. I get what they mean with that. But you’re spot on that they’re SO packed! Just because events take much longer to play out than in pulpy Star Wars, doesn’t mean it drags. This mooooves. #Andor" one of the tweets read. "Convinced everyone who finds #Andor boring just has no attention span, the pace isn’t slow at all," a tweet said. "If a "slow" start is the price I have to pay for a great show to lay out the universe it's playing in & set up the chess pieces of the story. It's a price I gladly pay.I will be tuning into #Andor .It's the first time since MandoS2 that there's been something worth subscribing for," one of the comments remarked.
