The pacing was cranked into overdrive, as though 3 or 4 episodes were squeezed into a single one. Scenes that should have been much longer were truncated to the point that some characters, going through significant emotional struggle, were only allowed one or two lines. It would be as though you tried to fit all three original Star Wars movies into a single hour. 10 minutes in, Obi Wan fights Vader. 10 minutes after that, the Death Star explodes. 10 minutes later, Luke gets his hand cut off. It's not enjoyable - it's like watching an entire season on fast-forward. Add to this lazy writing full of plot holes owing to not allowing enough time for characters to develop into decisions and viewpoints naturally, and what you get is a trainwreck (on fast-forward).
