    TV Review: Andor Season 1, Episode 4

    By Matthew Moorcroft Highest Recommendation While it’s explosive three-episode premiere showcased Andor‘s slow burn approach and how effective it is, Aldhani slows things back a bit to sit down with the cast.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law literally opens this recent episode with a not so subtle jab at the sexist backlash the show received as soon it was announced, and the rest of the episode continues that same level of “we literally don’t care, […]
