Disney hasn’t dropped a lot of balls on their Star Wars projects but with Star Wars: Resistance it seems very clear Disney has not put a lot of love into this story. And yes, I get it, Star Wars: Resistance was designed to cater to a younger audience but that doesn’t mean LucasFilm should just completely disregard the quality of their storytelling for the benefit of little children.
This story feels insignificant, unimaginative, and with each episode ending in an expected fashion, I’ve practically lost all investment in this series.
I was really enjoying the first five or so episodes but the last few have completely drained me. And this latest one, The Voxx Vortex 5000 was annoying from the get-go. I get it, the writers are trying to navigate the characters through the First-Order infested galaxy aboard the Colossus which needs repairs, food, etc. but with each passing episode, the series is becoming more and more lackluster.
This week’s episode introduced us to a new Hutt which I found to be a very unappealing choice for the episode. Jabba the Hutt is the only version of the clan that I have enjoyed seeing in the franchise. I wasn’t a fan of the Hutt characters in The Clone Wars and I’m definitely not a fan of this new Hutt.
Once again, a space casino was introduced and let me tell you something, the Star Wars space casinos are not cool. I have spoken.
I wish I could say I’m loving the second season of Star Wars: Resistance but honestly, it’s starting to annoy me more than the first season.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.
Last year, Star Wars: Resistance was something else. At times it was really good and at other times it was just…okay. This season has not had that problem. The first four episodes have been nothing short of exceptional, delivering well-written storylines that feel like they will amass to something truly special. And the incredible thing is, with each passing week, I find myself unable to decide which has been the best episode of the season so far.
The latest one, Hunt on Celsor 3, was literally a bundle of joy, providing legitimate humor and some eye-widening suspense. And while this episode decided to refrain from sharing the spotlight with Tam’s side of the story I was not at all bummed because the episode was so enjoyable.
I’m ranking this episode 97 out of 100 and 4.75 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day. May the Force be with you, always.
Star Wars: Resistance takes a break from the First Order/Resistance drama, delving into the brighter side of things in an exciting and legitimately enjoyable way.
SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS EPISODE and THIS EPISODE!
After the conflict with the First Order in the previous episode, it became very clear to Captain Doza and Jarek Yeager that the Ace pilots needed an upgrade in skill. They’re clearly great racers but in the event of combat, they were less than ready and barely survived their encounter with the First Order.
This made it paramount for the Aces to learn some new skills in case of another attack. Continue reading The Third Episode of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is Expectedly Entertaining
Star Wars: Resistance, the cartoon that a few months ago I was haranguing for its lackluster storytelling week after week. Every once in a while a good episode would arrive that would have me invested but for the most part, I was pretty bored every week. That narrative has long been lost and now I can truly announce that I love this show.
This week’s episode, No Escape: Part 1, is the beginning of a two-part finale and it was just as riveting as one might expect. Here is its synopsis.
Kaz, Neeku, and Torra try to save their friends as the First Order prepares to demonstrate the power of its superweapon.
The stakes were high, the action was suspenseful, and the episode’s chill-inducing conclusion is a perfect way to head into next week’s finale. As the episode played out I found myself thrilled on so many different levels.
Because I’m writing this review today I’ll share some insight on some of the episode’s greatest moments and how I felt about certain developments in context with the story.

Yesterday I wrote a spoiler-free review of this week’s latest episode of Star Wars: Resistance but I enjoyed it so much I wanted to delve into some of the episode’s most interesting plot points and what they could mean for the show’s future.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! If you have not watched the newest episode of Resistance and you’d rather not know the episode’s contents I advise you to discontinue reading now. Thank you for heeding this warning. 🙂
Kazuda Xiono’s Background
If you may not remember or know from the first episode of Resistance Kazuda Xiono was a pilot for the New Republic who was then recruited by Poe Dameron for a top secret mission. He was assigned as a spy on the Colossus to watch out for anything remotely suspicious in terms of the First Order.
The latest episode reminds us of Kaz’s backstory, revealing how he descends from a wealthy family on Hosnian Prime. Uh yeah, Hosnian Prime. The very system that was blown to smithereens by the First Order in The Force Awakens.
How this is going to affect Kaz is going to be very interesting, for the home and family that he knows and loves will be gone in a blink of an eye. It will surely harden him and solidify his quest to stop the First Order from inflicting any more harm on the galaxy.

Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. What just happened? Remember weeks back when I was complaining about how boring Star Wars: Resistance is. *chuckle* Not anymore. This show has reached a level that is so riveting I’m eager to see next’s week episode. Seriously. It’s that good.
If you missed last week’s episode, The Disappeared, then let me give you a quick rundown on what happened.
The First Order has put The Colossus under their control, heightening security in ways they see fit and harassing anyone they feel like messing with. As the First Order’s iron grip became tighter they started making people they deemed nuisances disappear. That included Ace pilot Hype Fazon and Aunt Z, owner of Aunt Z’s tavern, along with a few other characters.
