I liked it a lot. But it's not really Star Wars. (Whatever that is)
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Bladerunner (even down to the diegetic music), followed by Wall-E with a bit of Lieutenant Gorman (though that character is quickly changing).  We loved it.

I'm loving this take on the SW universe.

I really enjoyed episode #1 - a Star Wars spin-off that stands on its own two feet.

I agree it takes too long to get off-planet, but on the plus side, the setting is given some real room to breathe. There's also a refreshing 'everyman' feel to the characters since we haven't yet gotten into any of that pesky Rebellion backdrop. And of course it looks and sounds fantastic, which quite frankly, when you're in the Star Wars universe, is often enough to hold the attention.

The corporate stooge villain is really good too. Unusually nuanced for this sort of thing (especially his reaction to the ass kicking his team received)

Like a cross between Agent Cooper (standing in for Gorman) and the marines being handed their asses in Aliens. Really enjoyed the payoff in the third episode.
