I'm 24, I came to watch it excited that it would be just as good as Rebels, grew up with Star Wars, and...I just can't like it.
23 October 2018 | by ajbman-48222See all my reviews

So first thing first, I created an account literally just to post this review. I loved Clone Wars, I loved Rebels. I play the role-playing game by Fantasy Flight (as well as previous editions), X-Wing, and other Star Wars games. I grew up with it in my home. Unfortunately, as of 10/22/18 when i watched the 3 episodes that are currently out, I just could not enjoy this. I will list my gripes. -Main character Kaz is just unlikable: So Kaz could be described as rough around the edges because we're 3 episodes in. Truth be told, I could barely stand Ezra in Rebels early on because he was just a whiny kid, but the supporting cast let him grow into a wonderful character, worthy of respect, and admiration. Kaz is as old, or older than Ezra was when Ezra was respectable, but he's just a spoiled brat. I'll give him points for stating the fact that his father gave him everything, but when he starts whining about working, the magic kinda dies.

-The mentor is just garbage: So the mentor character, Jarek is an old soldier kind of guy. Without spoiling anything, he fought in the Galactic Civil War and truth be told, he probably lost some good friends back then. You can tell that he's sick of war and so he doesn't want to get involved in what is going on leading up to Episode 7. HOWEVER, he does not even begin to help Kaz with learning other than a "Why are you bad at this?" mentality. Like Kaz, he could grow. Kanan was not a good mentor at first but pretty early on he was admitting it to himself and wanting to improve.

-The animation style is a complete departure from what they did for Clone Wars and Rebels. So the animation style that they used for Resistance kind of reminds me of...Storm Hawks? If anyone remembers that. They seem to have departed from an outstanding animation style that looked to just be getting better. Maybe they wanted a different look for this one, or maybe the cost for that look just got too high. My bet is on the latter and I don't think I'll lose that bet.

-Supporting cast is meh: Neeku is over-the-top in his "I don't understand something non-literal and am thus easily-duped" mentality. Tam is just grumpy. Zeb was surly but you could see that there was more underneath. Bucket is just a cheap knockoff of Chopper. Chopper was rude and funny. Bucket is just...well he's over a century old and I guess there's respect there? I don't think so. Honestly, the 2 shop keeps that sell the parts are my favorite characters so far. They're funny and act like people I've met before as in those two are characters people can relate to.

My tl:dr of Resistance as of the time of writing this is: Star Wars Resistance could be a slightly better than mediocre kids show about a kid growing into a hero if it had not had the Star Wars name on it. Along the same lines that the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie and the Eragon movie could have been slightly better than mediocre movies if they didn't have those names. When something has the name "Star Wars" on it, the fans expect a certain level. Resistance just doesn't reach that level. Maybe it will get there, but I don't personally think so. I will keep watching, but not with glorious anticipation that I awaited Rebels with. Hopefully the continuation of Ezra's story is not A. marred by this series' reception, or B. a bad Rebels.
