Was the Mid-Season Finale of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Worth It?

Nine weeks, ten episodes, and we have finally reached the midway conclusion of the first season of Star Wars: Resistance. The question is; was it worth it? Yes, and no.

This week’s episode Station Theta Black was exciting to a certain extent and yet it didn’t grab my attention as much as I would have hoped a Star Wars finale should. It featured Poe Dameron and Kazuda Xiono on a top-secret mission for the Resistance and while it did also include Captain Phasma into the story I just was a tad bit bored.

Maybe I’ve given up caring about this series ever since the dismal episode two weeks ago (The Platform Classic) but it just seemed that the episode was trying to be worthy of a finale rather than just being good.

I loved Poe Dameron’s involvement in the episode because, well, it’s Poe! but unfortunately, he wasn’t even able to make this a finale worth getting pumped about. It was so mediocre in fact that I don’t even care in which direction the series may take once it returns because I’m honestly not that interested.

Now, if the second portion of the series starts to feature Kylo Ren, General Hux, or maybe even Snoke into the mix then maybe I’ll finally start getting excited about this series. Until then my reaction to Star Wars: Resistance is meh.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Regains Its Enjoyment

If you read my review of last week’s Star Wars: Resistance episode you will know that I was less than pleased. The Platform Classic was boring beyond belief, causing me to officially nominate it as the worst animated series that LucasFilm has created under Disney’s direction. It didn’t help when the animated shorts belonging to the new series Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures were even more enjoyable than Star Wars: Resistance. This week, however, the animated series was able to regain its momentum with an enjoyable episode that helped make this show somewhat interesting again.

Torra Doza

What also made this episode more intriguing than most was its focus on Torra Doza, a character we haven’t really seen up to this point, which is for a specific reason. Her father, Captain Doza, doesn’t like her to leave her room to roam the Colossus when the First Order is present. You could say, she’s somewhat the Star Wars equivalent of a princess locked away in a tower.

To learn more about her character was very interesting indeed and it’s kind of a shame that the series waited until the next to last episode to introduce her in a fulfilling fashion.

All in all, this series still isn’t anywhere near as good as its predecessors (which is obvious from its 4.7 out of 10 stars on IMDb) but at least this episode left me feeling happier than last week’s.

I’ll give this episode 86 out of a 100 and 3.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not great but it is good.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.

It’s Official: ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is LucasFilm’s Worst Animated Series

For the last eight weeks, I have followed Star Wars: Resistance diligently. I have paid close attention to the character’s storylines, I have enjoyed a few of the series episodes immensely, and I have become invested in the cartoon. And yet, with every week, I find myself on an emotional rollercoaster…and I don’t mean that in a good way.

The first hour-long episode; The Recruit, was okay as it introduced all of the main characters, featured Poe Dameron for a brief inclusion as a nostalgic stamp of approval for the series, and set up the possibilities of the hopefully entertaining future.

Then the series lulled for a couple of weeks with episodes that were less than interesting. The Triple Dark was so boring I don’t remember its plot and Fuel for the Fire was only slightly entertaining enough to keep me invested in the series as a whole.

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 Newest Episode of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Amps Up the Fun

Four weeks ago I wasn’t exactly thrilled about Star Wars: Resistance. Its first four episodes were only a tad bit interesting and that made the cartoon seem like a waste of brain space. It wasn’t until three weeks ago (episode 5 ‘The High Tower’) for the series’ potential to begin to shine. Since then I haven’t been able to get enough of this show. And the latest episode is no exception.

‘Signal from Sector Six’ brings beloved Resistance commander Poe Dameron back into the picture and together he and Kazuda Xiono go on a brief but action-packed adventure that was so much fun to watch I watched the episode twice (and I may watch it again before the end of the week.)

This episode was riveting literally from beginning to end. The humor was spot on, the action was phenomenal, the suspense was, well, suspenseful, and even though I would love to keep this review light on spoilers I have to talk about a certain character that I loved SOOOO much in this episode. That character is a new droid, CB-23.

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Takes An Interesting Turn With Its Latest Episode

Star Wars: Resistance through its first few episodes was an underwhelming experience. The episodes’ situations were boring, uninteresting and it didn’t seem like this show was going to amount to much. But then with last week’s episode, ‘The High Tower’, everything seemed to change. The First Order finally started to come into the picture and my interest level for the show went up! And it seems that with this latest episode, ‘The Children from Tehar’, the momentum isn’t stopping.

In this episode, Kaxuda Xiono is trying to find a pair of runaway children to collect their 20,000 credit bounty but it’s not long before things become more complicated than it first seems. This episode has the right amount of comedy, it’s got some shocking moments, and it provides a tiny bit of suspense that makes the episode that much better.

Honestly, this show is getting more interesting by the week. I truly feel that this cartoon is leading to something very important and it’s only a matter of time before we figure out what that might be. *clapping my hands* Ooh, I’m so excited.

I’ll give this episode 88 out of a 100 and 3.8 out of 5 stars. I happened to like last week’s episode a tad bit more but this was definitely worth the wait. I absolutely can’t wait to see what happens next week! 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day. May the Force be with you.

 

The Latest Episode of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is Getting Me Excited!

Star Wars: Resistance began with a few episodes that were good but weren’t great and I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed. So, last night I watched the latest episode but as you can suspect I wasn’t that interested. I figured it was going to be like all of the other episodes I had seen; semi-boring. It wasn’t.

With it being the fifth episode in the series so far The High Tower shines in ways that are very promising for the future. We’re finally getting a bit of First Order action in this latest episode and Kazuda Xiono delights as he takes us, the viewer, on a wild 22-minute adventure that is jam-packed with thrills and laughs to the end.
