It Gets Better
Honestly, I think Resistance is going well. While the first few episodes are repetitive, it picks up the pace relatively quickly--the stakes quickly get higher (this series starts six months before The Force Awakens and is expected to cross over sometime during seasons 1 or 2, so there's that too), and team Fireball gets some character development. Also, the expressiveness of this animation style is enjoyable, and the dynamic between the characters is fresh and fun.
tl;dr, don't judge this series based on the first few episodes--all of the Star Wars cartoons had a finish that was better than the beginning.
Disney deserves the First Order for this horrible show!
May the Force not be with Disney:
I have two very intelligent teenage nieces and was hoping this new “Star Wars Resistance” Disney animation would be a wonderful introduction to the George Lucas “Star Wars Galaxy”. Fortunately, this new animation takes place in a mythical galaxy, not a real galaxy and universe, so Earth humanity is safe!
Kaz, the "star" and main character of this horrible animation, behaves like a teenage non-gender humanoid life form who is lazy, self-centered, irresponsible, cowardly, vacuous and imbecilic - clearly not the characteristics I desire to inculcate into my nieces. In my opinion, everyone who has paid for a Season Pass should have their money refunded with 10% interest, minimum.
Instead of purchasing other Disney animations or movies I will use my hard-earned cash wisely and take my beloved nieces to Barnes & Noble and buy them well-written books.
Goodbye Disney billionaires.
After 10 episodes I am feeling kinda ripped off. I LOVED rebels. It was great with the exception on one or two episodes, but this is just kinda annoying. Kaz is like Jar Jar but human and more dim witted. Nothing happens but him breaking things and acting like a dumb a**. Then he finds some info but the show goes nowhere. At $40 a "season" there better be more than 10 episodes of mostly filler dog S***

I loved The Clone Wars and also really loved Rebels. This is just bad.
Booooooo... so bad!
By #greg is awesome
Ok first things first. I started watching this show with an open mind. And while I definitely love the original canon (while Lucas owned Star Wars) I have generally had a high opinion for all the new (Disney) Star Wars stuff... even though The Last Jedi was disappointing.
Coming after Star Wars The Clone Wars/Rebels amazing story, animation, and writing. This obviously had a lot to live up too.
It did not, in anyway, come close to its predecessors.
First thing about the the animation is, it’s extremely colorful, too much actually. It’s not very realistic.
Second thing about it is the fact that it is EXTREMELY jerky when they talk, they’re like puppets.
A few other logic problems.
Why did Poe let this random kid have his droid?
His, and I quote. “Orange and White BB unit, one of a kind.”
This kid fell onto the windscreen of a ship probably doing 200 to 300 miles an hour without injuring himself.
He then proceeded to fall 30 feet into a bunch of metal crates, still without injury.
If this is gonna be one of those shows where the main characters never have ANYTHING bad happen to them. Then great job. (Not putting in ANY effort to bring out the emotions of your viewers).
Also, this show seems to be targeted at a SEVERELY younger audience then Rebels and The Clone Wars, just sayin.
I’m sorry. You can call me butthurt. But this is my honest opinion. I am EXTREMELY disappointed. If you like it, you can keep it. I will definitely pass.
Especially considering Dave Filoni did this.
On the other hand, I can’t wait for “The Mandalorian”.
Maybe that one won’t be as disappointing, especially considering it’s live action.
Another reviewer decided to argue some of the points I made in my previous review, So I have to revise it.
First thing, I will give you this. There is a chance, however remote, that Poe Dameron would give some random kid his droid so they could have covert communication.
But aren’t there specialized droids, that the resistance, however poorly funded, would have specifically for that reason?
And doesn’t it seem lazy to you that they just used BB-8 instead of coming up with a new character? Seriously though.
Secondly. Said reviewer also claimed that the ship that Kaz (the main character) falls onto is only going around 120 mph. And that after hitting said ship he only falls around 90 meters. This point that he made I think is invalid because if you got hit head on at 120 miles per hour, while you yourself were going pretty fast after falling 20 feet, AND THEN fell another 90 meters (295 feet) onto a stack of metal crates. I think you would be dead or severely injured. Or, on TV, clutching your ribs or at least bruised.
Third and last point: that other guy uses Rhodes, who fell 1,200 meters, as example. Saying that “He walked away virtually unharmed!” Even though Rhodes was wearing a futuristic suit of armor, and is now paralyzed from the waist down. He isn’t doing much walking. Considering our character was wearing street clothes, I don’t think this is a good comparison.
All in all, I do not think this show is very good and that’s my opinion. Will be looking forward to future series.
So far, so good.
Star Wars Resistance has been good so far. The reason for the four stars is that I have one criticism of the show, which is the unnecessary use of comedy. For those who are saying that the show has no story or plot, you need to keep in mind that the story is still in the beginning stages.
Part of a growing Star Wars universe
I've really enjoyed the show. It's a departure from the animation style of Clone Wars and Rebels, but the anime-inspired visuals breathe new life into Star Wars storytelling. Diverse ship design and species variations add to the universe and make it more immersive. I'm looking forward to more episodes, especially as the conflict between the First Order and Resistance intensifies.
It’s a GREAT show

I love this show it’s so entertaining to watch. I dunno why people say it trash but it’s so good. After rebels and clone wars of course. But I love it. Each episode gets more enjoyable. Filoni is always full of surprises
Even though the show is hated for having more childlike appeals for the younger audience and the conflict is not a bigger intergalactic involvement as Star Wars fans are use to, but the TV show is lately improving a lot, by having the last episode “The Children from Tehar” where Kaz hears the story of the children’s homeworld was destroyed by Kylo Ren which is similar to the opening of Star Wars The Force Awakens it set him on the course to his real self, finding the map to Luke Skywalker before the First Order does!
