Star Wars Resistance — Page 7

As someone who has loved the previous 2 cartoons, I watched the episode “Triple Dark” and hoo boy, was it bad. It was worse than any of the Rebels filler episodes people complained about. The episode and lead character were paint-by-numbers kids show.

Hopefully that was the lowpoint of the series.

The Jedi are all but extinct.......

Having watched the first episode, I think it’s decent. Nothing exceptionally pointing me in one direction or other on how I feel. The premise holds potential, but I’m not necessarily hooked by the characters right now.

I’m similarly mixed on the animation style. On the one hand, it often looks pretty cheap. But there are plenty of moments where I think the faux 2D style really works and I can’t help but think “hey, that’s cool.”

Ultimately, we’ll see where it goes. At the moment it feels markedly more kid oriented than the last two shows, but then again when Rebels started I thought the same thing, so who knows.

Just finished watching the first episode. Overall I liked it

The Animation: I agree with DominicCobb in that there were moments where it looked really cool and then there were moments that it just looked like crap. However, while we’re talking about the visuals, it was really cool seeing some classic Star Wars creatures again.

The Story: For me, the coolest things were at the very beginning and the very end. I understand that we’re setting up the characters, but it honestly felt like this episode had no meat to it. Pretty much like your first day at school where you say your name and what you did last summer. Yet finally actually seeing the New Republic military in any capacity made me really happy.

I guess we shall see where it goes.

the first order hid out in the unknown regions and kidnapped children from many families on many planets, brainwashed them and bolstered their army. they’ll probably reiterate this point in non-book / non-video game format using the show. hopefully there’s new info.

^ that sounds similar to what the (Canon) Jedi of the prequels did , except they were not in hiding .sounds like a narrative thread that will tie in to the sequel trilogy , ie, Luke’s desire to wipe the slate clean as he saw the hypocrisy and hubris of the Jedi order taking babies from their families and indoctrinating them .Ben and Yoda never told him of this in the OT ( the prequels were mostly retro active anyway ) , maybe Luke learned of this info after Ben Solo wiped out his temple , that being the case , it would go a long way to shedding more light on why he decided to wash his hands of it all . I would be pretty miffed after all he went through if that were the case . but , that’s just like , my opinion man .

I haven’t seen the show, but I am also not planning on watching it anytime soon. I’m very mixed on Dave Filoni’s Star Wars content. Clone Wars was VERY hit and miss for me, and Rebels was good, but it could’ve been a LOT better. I’m a bit surprised that he’s not front-running the show. He’s most likely working on the final season of Clone Wars and helping Jon Favreau Here’s what I have to say about the show based on what I’ve seen in the trailer.

I actually don’t like the animation. To me, it looks very cheap. It looks like the type of animation used in the early 2000’s or late 90’s for animated shows that were made intentionally to sell toys to kids. Very much like Max Steel and one of the G.I. Joe shows for kids.

I think the trailer was put together very poorly. The tone shifts around too much. It begins dramatically, then action orientated, then light hearted, along with awkward unfunny pauses mixed in. The shot of the main character hit in the face by the droid, resulting in a ridiculous look on his face was just embarrassing to me to see in Star Wars. I also think the characters seem very annoying, especially the main character. While it’s cool they were able to get Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie to reprise their roles as Poe and Phasma in the show, it’s not enough to make me watch the show. The show may be intended for kids, but why are new episodes airing on Disney Channel at 10:00 PM on Sundays? Most young kids would be in bed getting ready for school at that point. The airing time sounds makes the show seem as if it’s geared towards old-school hardcore fans.

So far, I’ve heard decent things about the show, but I don’t plan on watching it. I didn’t mean to sound negative if I did, I’m just sharing my thoughts on what I’ve seen for the promotions for Resistance.

I will just follow the story through online reviews and comments here , the animation style does not really appeal to me either , wish they would go for a more realistic approach like Final Fantasy or even the style of some of the DC animated films . I can’t see signing up for another streaming service for this . Even when the Mandalorian comes out , I may just wait for a season blu ray release or something .What the hell ever happened to free , quality tv ? oh yeah , that does not exist anymore .

I’m enjoying this. The Clone wars and Rebels both started out slow and ended up becoming great. I consider both to be essential Star Wars viewing. I’d say Resistance has started out stronger than both of those. I like the Deep Space Nine/Babylon 5 feel to the setting of life on the Colossus platform. I’m guessing in an episode very soon, Starkiller is going to fire and destroy the Hosnian system. Then things are going to get very real for the sheltered Kaz.

Exactly! Anyone paying attention can see the potential for where this show can go. And people on the production team have already confirmed the series will continue into and parallel the events of TFA and TLJ.

Help back OMNO!

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
