Might want to check on demand if you have that feature.

I finally got around to looking into this stuff last night, and I managed to get episodes 1, 3, 4, and 5 to download to the DVR from On-Demand last night - 6 and 7 I already have.

Episode 2, I couldn't find.

So dumb, but I'm close!

I bet there will be a marathon over Thanksgiving weekend.

Been catching g up.  Itís improving as it goes I think and Iím enjoying the designs and alien diversity.  Seeing the little wolf monkey guys from Mazís Castle  in the pirate raid was neat and I like their use of imperial hardware.  Itís not great, but itís not bad either.  Itís got some action some story to it.  I like it better than I liked Rebels for some reason.  That show left me bummed because I think Iíd hoped for less forcey stuff and more actual warring.  The designs of background characters and objects felt stunted and meh.  This has a lot more going on visually thatís for sure.

Trailer for second half of season 1 looks great. Surprised they're already going to be right in the middle of TFA.

Isn't there some sort of FCC regulation that bars new episodes of a show on Super Bowl Sunday?

A lot of networks won't air new programming on Superbowl Sunday because they know most people are going to be watching Football that day.

Luckily, HBO still had a new episode of True detective.  :D

I know not many regular JDers watch this show and some even think it's laughable some of us would like more figures, but it's moved into Force Awakens timeline and is very interesting. Not great. Not must watch. But certainly worth 23 minutes of the week.

The final two episodes of Resistance proved to me what I have been thinking all along.

The concept for this show was good for maybe two, perhaps three hours of programming and the other 15 or so hours we got were pure fluff that the writers had to come up with just for the sake of turning it into a TV show.

I don't want to spoil anything for anyone since I know a lot of folks don't keep up with this show, but the two-part season finale finally made this show seem like it mattered in the larger ST tale.

Can I just skip to the season finale episodes and still know what's going on?

There are a few episodes that start to build towards the finale.  The ones that include Poe Dameron tend to be a bit more notable.  And once the First Order turns up to occupy the station, the stakes get elevated.  But admittedly the beginning of the season is a little goofy.

Which I thought was exactly the same thing for Clone Wars and Rebels. As far as half way through the season 1 thinking this is chore TV I have to watch and not something I wanted to watch. I totally disagree with Pete. It's not great, but I saw no issue with them building up what this station was and who lived there to then show the First Order come take it because it was useful to them.

I've had the same experience Nick with each of the animated series - the first seasons have always seemed to be a struggle to get through. For some reason though Resistance seemed to be the hardest for me and I think it mostly stems from the fact that the goofiness factor on this show seems to be dialed WAY up compared to Clone Wars and Rebels.

Perhaps the reason why the final two episodes resonated better with me was because the goofiness was definitely dialed back, the story got serious, it tied in/overlapped with TFA and finally made it seem like the show was actually moving in some kind of a direction. I'm actually looking forward to see where the show goes in Season 2.

I would even welcome seeing the Colossus and its inhabitants pop up in EP9.

The season finale has come and gone for season 1 of RESISTANCE.  And I just noticed something about a number of the characters (mostly the Aces).  With the exception of Hype Fazon (voiced by actor Donald Faison), the characters kind of resemble the actors who are voicing them.  Kaz looks a great deal like voice actor Christopher Sean, Yeager resembles actor Scott Lawrence, Tora Doza looks a lot like her actor, Myrna Velasco, and so on.  The same goes for Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Freya Fenris) and Griff Halloran (Steven Stanton).

We've already seen a significant amount of crossover between some Sequel Trilogy characters into this series:  Poe Dameron, Leia, BB-8, Captain Phasma, Hux, etc.  I am genuinely wondering, does anyone think it's possible that characters from the show might actually cross over into live action as pilots for the reborn Rebellion in Episode IX?

Season 2 trailer on line. Is that the Na'vi from Avatar I saw? Do they go to Pandora?
