Nailed it! I'm glad some people have too much time on their hands.

/Good show if you haven't checked it out yet

Screw curing cancer, focus on making funny things.

That video was so 1975, it is amazing.

The music sounds too 80s, I'm pretty sure heavy synth wasn't a thing yet.

The space stuff is just too good.  It needs to be de-rezed, some rough compositing effect added around the ships, and the background needs to be cut out and replaced with something that looks like a matte painting by someone who has never seen a photo of Earth from orbit.  Explosions should all look exactly the same and include a lot of black smoke and a handful of sparks.

But regardless, I enjoyed watching it.

Why cure cancer if there's nothing left to live for?

I like the length of it. We spent so many years letting producers shave 3-5 minutes off a show with long titles and bumpers.

Nah.

This came out in 1975.

Clockwork Orange had a heavily electronic score in 1971.

If curing cancer is so easy that anyone with a little spare time can do it, what's your excuse?

And the intro was a ripoff/sendup of the Tom Baker Doctor Who era (74-81):

That's very 1980s. The 1970s wish they could afford low-res graphics opening titles like that

Those graphics were from 1968 (the Jupiter and Beyond segment from 2001).

It's not like you'd want the funny people curing cancer, "Oh hell yea we got the cure, but it turns you plaid."

Not sure how making funny things translates as a skill towards curing cancer, but it could be worse:

Wolverine and the X-Men and it's sequel Spider-Man and the X-Men were so good.

I see what you are saying, and I wish we could reallocate resources on that level, but until we get a million soldiers behind us I dont think we can force the Disney Corporation to cure cancer.

That was great.  The "based on THX-1138" at the end was a nice touch.

NINEv2: The show was great. That soundtrack/score was amazing.


i really just want the final part of the score to be released on streaming services so I can listen to that funeral dirge transition into the whatever it was that kicked things off, on repeat.

No it wasn't, it was 1983.

Close.  Needed to shorten the intro lights bit, no TV intro would waste that much time on it

Outstanding! If only they could cheapen up the special effects, though. Some of those CGI shots looked way too good for 1970's TV.

Both of those sequences were made using a slit scan technique, which is why they have a similar look.

That was awesome. There is so much talent out there.

As someone who was a kid in the 70's...  Yep.  They nailed it!

I only just now realized the emotional, slightly-neurotic droid's designation is B2EMO, or Be Too EMO.
 
2022-11-26 9:41:30 AM  
8/10.

forest whitaker would have been billed as "guest staring" or "special guest star," and the droid as "introducing."

It's also missing someone winking.

Yup. Generic British Sci-Fi. Not Star Wars.
 
2022-11-26 12:05:27 PM  
Made in 1975 by the BBC, that is.
 
2022-11-26 12:13:42 PM  
I would also like to say...  Since I missed the original Andor thread...

This is the best Star Wars origin story so far.  And it was for a character that I didn't know needed an origin story.

And they gave Forest Witaker's character new life.  His story makes SO much more sense than just what we saw of him in Rogue One.  Now we understand him better.  I also rather enjoyed seeing Mon Mothma and how she got started.
And they threw in a couple of gems like Stellan Skarsgård for good measure.

So much about the writing, the production, the acting, everything really, was just so spot on.

This series made ObiWan Kenobi's story look foolishly inept.  Well, more foolishly inept.  That story was crap.  Han Solo?  Fun ride, lot of action, but REALLY bad otherwise.  Book of Boba Fette?  Eh, good try, but so much fail on that one too.

So yeah, they got this one right.

The Obiwan Vader rematch was sssoooooooooo worth it though.

The music was definitely 1980's music... the creator should have synthed some strings and horns, instead of going full electronic.
 
2022-11-26 6:18:09 PM  
It's been mentioned in this thread already, but the theme is an obvious play on the Dr. Who theme from the 70s. 80s synth would have been much more polished. This is more Cluster than Depeche Mode.

If you like that, you should check out The Clone Wars for Saw's origins, and Rebels for some more details about the early state of the Rebellion and a bit of Saw's back-story.

He was already fleshed out before he appeared in Rogue One.
