The microseries isn't canon any longer. There's quite a few TV related things which aren't canon anymore (Ewoks TV movies, Ewoks cartoon, Droids cartoon, etc.). I think the opening post is more explaining the current state of semi-active shows that are canon.

Can we also please not poo poo up the thread with movie complaints, keep that in the movie threads.

I hope that means Clancy Brown is in it. He'd be terrifying as some Crime Lord or post Empire Hold Out.

Well he was in both Rebels and Clone Wars, so I'm guessing he struck up a friendship with him. But yeah, I agree, I would LOVE to see him in the live action show.

This is what I was thinking. Jaded, world weary Sabine would be an interesting direction to take her character.

seeing some rumblings on twitter that Leia appears in the first episode of Resistance but conspicuously has no lines. Maybe they've completely excised that actress' performance.

It's possible they still will and just didn't get it done (or get the lines re-recorded) in time for the series premiere

The first 3 (4 technically) episodes of Resistance are up on the Disney Channel site.

Looks like the first "episode" is the first two episodes back to back, i.e. The Recruit parts one and two. Then there's episode two The Triple Dark and three Fuel for the Fire. Looks like both parts of The Recruit will be airing on Disney tonight. The next two are actually online way before hitting TV. So if you want to get a few weeks ahead, you can do so by watching online.

Those were some solid episodes. Definitely stronger, especially on the dialogue side, than Rebels was at the start.

Stuff I liked:
- The Colossus has a nice sense of personality and community even this early on
- Music reminds me of the iMuse score on the early X-Wing games
- The flight visuals are a dream
- The character designs are interesting and varied (that freaking furry janitor alien)

Stuff I was eh on:
- I said the dialogue was stronger than early Rebels, but it still has a ways to go
- The now-traditional S1 filler eps (though I'll grant that the pirates and the other flight crew will definitely be recurring characters)
- And yeah, it is most definitely "for kids" though there is still quite a bit of nuance here and there (Senator Dad calling the Resistance "extremists" is an interesting touch)

I'm not a huge fan of the art style, but the animation is top notch and everything looks good. I imagine the style will grow on me because of how good it looks.

Grimey Drawer

The main character has Season 1 Ezra Syndrome, in that I can't wait for him to explode and die grow up and stop being so irritating. The show's biggest flaw right now, for me at least, is that there's only two likable characters (Yeager, Bucket) in the cast. It's impossible to judge this early on, but I have a feeling it'll follow the same trajectory as Rebels, where the first season is rough and small in scope, and subsequent seasons get better once the larger conflicts are introduced.

I'm really digging the ship designs though.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE DEAD, MOTHERFUCKER?

Fallen Rib

Watched all the episodes currently available. Much stronger start than Rebels and the animation already looks really good so I can't wait to see what they do with it as they get stronger and build up the asset library. The background peeps on the Colossus are much more varied than anything we saw in Rebels which gives it a really nice vibe, like it probably took Clone Wars or Rebels a couple of seasons to get enough models to represent the # of aliens we see in like 1 cantina shot in this.

The visuals are really great so far, especially any of the wide shots of the Colossus. The racing hook is already paying off as there is now plenty of fodder to introduce gimmicky teams for one offs or for continuous cameos. Elijah Wood's in the third episode as Jace Rucklin, a mischievous upstart racing crew.

One thing I will say about Resistance is that the mix of OT, PT, and ST alien/droid designs is fantastic. You’ve got new guys like the giant-headed janitor and Unkar Plutt’s species alongside pit droids, Aleena, and OT deepcuts like snaggletooth.

Not sure what to make of Jim Rash’s ‘literally an ovoid chicken’ alien.

Speaking of cameos; its super obvious, but the race announcer is Greg Proops! Not voicing Fode again...but still!

I'm up to episode 3 and I'm enjoying this, but I kinda wish Kaz wasn't such a whiny dumbass. I mean, that's all the main characters in Star Wars, but he seems worse than normal. Though like all others, he'll grow up.

With the animation style the designs really pop too! Compared to Rebels or CLone Wars where the different species were honestly pretty bland.

I'm impressed that a show aimed pretty solidly at kids is willing to mention "Death" out loud. No euphemisms like "destroy" or whatever, just "if you do this, you'll die", "this could kill you", etc.
