One thought I arrived at after considering why I didn’t really like the show much is that while it does feel Star Wars (makes sense for a Filoni joint), and while all that detail stuff that’s in there works quite well, the filmmaking quality feels subpar. Not even up to snuff if measured against some of the middle-of-the-road shows out there these days. Could be because how conservative it is? First-time live action director probably wasn’t the best choice to start with…

On the plus side, it’s not a Game of Thrones knock-off. No pressure is an accurate observation, but judging from the final shot that could change by the end. I am mildly interested in what they do with the little green guy(?), though.

Also, a few too many references that served no purpose - it was a bit distracting just how much they wanted to parade in front of the viewer. Maybe spread those out in the future? Work them into the script more?
