Wow, the scriptwriting and direction are so good. It brings to life the seeds of a rebellion and the way oppressive regimes get arrogant and careless.

It is so good! Great acting and a variety of complex female characters, love it!! I’m kind of obsessed with Dedra Meero, I love how we go from rooting for her because she’s so intelligent and competent to realizing she’s scary and downright evil. Her interrogation of Bix Calleen gave me chills.

The actress who plays Mon Mothma is superb as well! So elegant and serene on the surface but with a fiery core and increasing desperation as she realizes she might have to make compromises to her morals for the sake of the rebellion.

I loved Rogue One because it stripped away the heroics and showed the reality of being a rebel, when Cassian gathers a group of rebels to go to Scarif with Jyn because they have all done things in the name of the rebellion, like Cassian killing the injured rebel spy in the beginning of Rogue One, that cost them too much of their humanity to let the rebellion be destroyed without a fight. It is Star Wars for grown ups.

Fiona Shaw, who was amazing in Killing Eve and Persuasion (1995), is in it!

I had to stop after the third episode because I was extremely bored. I also strongly dislike Diego Luna. I might give it another try further in the future but for now, it's in my "dislike" camp lol.
