I am. First episode was same as most of last season as in "meh". I do think now that it's them vs. The First Order it should be more interesting.

I keep forgetting to get on the Scockery TV/movie watching routine of only watching things I loathe.

Now that episode was just dumb.

That episode? Well that narrows it down.

I was surprised they killed that monster. Don't monsters have rights?

At least furball got his floor buffer back. That's the character arc I wanted finished.

I figured the time stamp would date the episode I meant. Also thought I was the only one who needed to "seek help" so I was talking to myself. Show is still nothing more than a C- but it's also still Star Wars and takes 23 minutes to watch.

I like some of the characters and am interested to see how this ends. And sadly for me I don't watch any shows I loathe and can go find a website to tell everyone how much it sucks and how dumb it is. Does that Masked Singer show have a maskeddefender.com?  My sister in law always trys to get me to watch it.

I watch the show on the web not on the channel it airs...if I even get it.  Much easier to go back and reloathe scenes that way.

I know Iím late to the meeting, so to speak, but I finally watching some of the first season of Star Wars Resistance on Disney+.  It is definitely a kid-oriented show (much more so than Rebels or Clone Wars) but overall itís not bad at all and Iím rather enjoying it :)

I think even for a kid's show, they've overused the giant monster trope.

I was catching up on some DVR'd episodes last night.  And I didn't get that as much from the last two episodes.  Kaz is still kind of goofy, I won't ague that.  But it seems like some story elements in this series are starting to build up towards The Rise Of Skywalker.  Especially with the episode about relic hunting in old temples.

I wish they'd get to "vs the First Order" more. I'd like a decent conclusion

I canít fault the giant monster thing.  Itís part of all of Star Wars really.  I caught up last weekend on the series and itís really underrated.  Itís better to me than Rebels ever was, which disappointed me a lot.  I really wish the actors got a cameo in TRoS.  The relic hunter troopers were pretty slick.

That last ep on Empok Nor....the FO refueling station. The First Order is okay with Nikto as technicians?
I have no idea...who is supposed to be speciesist this week?

I did get a kick out of the technician suits. I was kind of hoping that was "Matt" sneaking around.

I finally managed to get through season 2 of Resistance while on the treadmill. 

I really liked how the show finished up and they finally got to some conflict with the First Order.  All those final episodes were solid an entertaining.

However, half of the episodes leading up to the final story arc were difficult to watch and just plain stupid.  Anything involving the aces and racing was dreadful.

This series overall was a lot worse than Rebels, which I mostly enjoyed.  My kids enjoyed Rebels and we watched it each week together.  They didn't care for Resistance and gave up pretty quick.

If anyone if considering watching this series and hasn't started, I'd suggest watching the first couple of episodes of season 1 to get to know the characters, and then skipping ahead and watching the final half of season 2.
