What did Reva do wrong? I thought she was great!

Extraordinary, how ever did you manage to guess.

And yes, Reva's story was easily the highlight of the series.

Totally agree. It really highlights how much of a monster Vader (and the Empire) is/was and Reva's whole arc reflects that she is not the monster she thought she could be.

As others have pointed out, it was an unholy mess of racism and sexism.  I thought that she made a delightful baddie, and am just starting to see the other part of her arc.

I will watch anything with Ewan MacGregor in it, even if I think that it's going to be terrible.  He's pretty much always a delight.

Agreed on that./
Man, seeing that he aged a bit (he is > 50 so it's normal) made me feel old too...

Now my face hurts. I feel like Sokka at the end of the 'Secret Tunnel' episode.

I just finished it, and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.  I’ll be content if they don’t do another miniseries as a continuation, but there are certainly good storylines (that I’d totally watch) if they do, as long as it’s the same calibre.  But it just feels nicely complete as is.

So uh, Andor has been going fucking amazing. If you aren't watching it, be watching it.

So Andor season one ended just yesterday, and I think it's safe to say that it's been one of the best first seasons I've ever watched, and a hell of a masterpiece from all involved. Everyone, Serkis, Skaarsgard, Luna, they all showed off their skills to an insane degree and told a story in Star Wars I never could have thought possible, let alone as spectacularly as they did.

So like I said before, if you aren't watching it, be watching it. You won't regret it.

100% agreed. And honestly, you don't need to know any Star Wars lore at all to enjoy it. It just works as a story and with the characters involved.

Also there's a post credit thing after final episode.
