The Latest Episode of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Lulls but Keeps the Series’ Momentum

Eight episodes in and Star Wars: Resistance is keeping afloat with its quality. The latest episode, ‘Synara’s Score’, leaves the topic of the First Order and the Resistance behind and moves toward an action-packed dispute with pirates. As the Colossus’s Ace Pilots leave the outpost defenseless and the Colossus’s cannons are down in need of repairs it is up to Yeager, Kaz, Tam to save the day.

While I enjoyed the last two episodes of the series a lot more this one managed to be engaging which is all I care about. Its action was riveting and its storyline was decent. The secret pirate that Kazuda Xiono rescued becomes a more integral part of the story which I was glad to see. But beyond that, the episode was, meh.

I’d give it 85 out of a 100 and 3.5 out of 5 stars. The very end of the episode, however, definitely seemed promising but with only two episodes left in the series it doesn’t look like this series will be surpassing Star Wars: Rebels or Star Wars: The Clone Wars anytime soon.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Lead Actor for ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Been Revealed!

Just last month the live-action Star Wars show set to appear on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, wowed fans around the world with an exclusive image featuring the show’s mysterious lead character and the release of the name; The Mandalorian. But now the man behind the mask has been revealed and of course, I’m here to share this exciting news with you all.

Pedro Pascal, who you may know for his lead role in the critically-acclaimed Netflix series, Narcos and his role in the Emmy-winning series Game of Thrones, has been announced to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Um, how awesome is that?

First off, he looks like he’d be an awesome Star Wars character. Secondly, it looks like Disney is continuing the trend of diversity by casting the lead as a man of color for the series. That’s always exciting. And third, because he is such an incredible actor he will bring a delightful grittiness to this bounty hunter series.

This is GREAT news and now I am even more excited for this show.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier Are Getting a Show!

So if you’ve been keeping up with Disney you know the company is making a streaming service that’s set to come out next year called Disney Play. This streaming service is going to deliver exclusive content to everyone for a minimal fee. That includes new Star Wars content, Disney films, animated exclusives, but it also seems that the service will give us some exciting new things to look forward to with Marvel as well.

A few weeks ago it was announced that the streaming service would feature television shows focusing on two Marvel favorites; Scarlet Witch and Loki. Whether Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston will reprise the roles is still a mystery but the talk of these series has been circling. But now there’s been an update.

As of yesterday, it was announced that Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan would reprise their roles as Falcon and Bucky a.k.a The Winter Soldier for a limited series on the Disney Play streaming service. And get this. It’s already found a writer for the series. Now, how exciting is that?

Falcon and Bucky are some of my favorite heroes in the MCU but they’re never given much to do other than be awesome sidekicks. Well, that changes with this limited series and I can’t wait to watch it. It’s going to be awesome!

How do you feel about this news? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Ranking the ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Characters; from Worst to Best

Star Wars: Resistance premiered last week and with two weeks passing and all of the main characters being presented fully I’m going to share with you who I think are the worst and best characters are in this show. Enjoy!

5. Neeku Vozo

Neeku Vozo

Neeku is a likable character, there’s no doubt about that, but his youthful naivety can be a bit…much at times. In the first episode, he kept saying the same thing over and over again until the point of exasperation on my part and the next two episodes didn’t make him any cooler. Neeku is sweet but there’s a line between sweet and a tad bit annoying that the show hasn’t figured out how to navigate just yet.

4. Tam Ryvora

Tam Ryvora

Tam is basically Rose from The Last Jedi novelization. She’s grumpy like Rose was supposed to be and she’s a great mechanic. Up to this point so far in this season, she hasn’t been given a chance to play a huge role in the show. Of course, the show is about Kazuda Xiono but I am interested in learning more about her in the coming episodes.

My Spoiler-Free Review of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’

If you may not have known a new animated Star Wars cartoon called Star Wars: Resistance debuted last night on the Disney channel (it’s also premiering tonight on Disney XD at 8pm) and, of course, I tuned in to watch it.

I’ve been a fan of the Star Wars cartoons since The Clone Wars came out. After binge-watching all 5 riveting seasons (and the lost episodes) I was beyond excited to see more animated Star Wars series. I missed the entire Star Wars: Rebels series (which I plan to binge-watch in the future) but I was determined to see Star Wars: Resistance.

When it came on last night I was thrilled to see a new story being told that would fill in some gaps of the current trilogy.

I loved Poe Dameron’s inclusion in the series. It brought a familiarity to the show that made me want to turn on The Force Awakens. But, as the show continued on, it became abundantly clear that this was no Clone Wars.

My Review of ‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’

I’ve just recently gotten interested in Marvel’s animated cartoons that are available to watch on Disney XD and so I decided to watch Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. I thought it was a tv show but it actually was a tv movie and for the most part I enjoyed it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse cast of characters in the movie. Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl (oh my goodness, I love Squirrel Girl.) America Chavez and Patriot. Quake and Dante. They were all such incredible characters that really opened my mind to the possibilities in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ms. Marvel is undoubtedly going to make an appearance sooner rather than later in the MCU. Her character is such an important piece to The Avengers and with Captain Marvel arriving in her own standalone film next year I have a feeling we’ll see the Muslim teenage superhero by at least 2024 (which actually seems a long way from now when you look at it that way.)

My ‘Saturday Night Live’ Overview

Last night Season 44 of Saturday Night Live debuted with Adam Driver hosting and Kanye West providing the music. So, of course, since my favorite Dark Side baddie was back to being silly on Saturday Night Live I wasn’t going to miss it and I’m here to share with you my overview of the episode. Enjoy!

Matt Damon Steals the Show

Before Adam Driver could even start his opening monologue Saturday Night LIve began with a bang with Matt Damon surprising everyone as he portrayed Brett Kavanaugh in a hilarious parody of Thursday’s Senate hearings. If you missed it here it is.
