Star Wars Resistance Season 1 Thoughts

I've always been a fan of Star Wars animated series, from Tartakovsky's Clone Wars, to Dave Filoni's Clone Wars and Rebels.  So many great characters and stories came from them, and we see the same debate come up every time.  A particular group of fans calls the new show too kid friendly while another group says the show should be kid friendly.  Then, both groups are proven wrong, because the show develops characters and goes into a darker direction.

Season 1 of Resistance seems like it's got the same potential as previous series.  The main character Kaz isn't nearly as annoying as Ahsoka or Ezra were in the early episodes of their respective shows.  He's an aspiring pilot who wants to join the resistance, but takes a job as a spy.  Neeku Vozo(voiced by Josh Brener, Big Head from Silicon Valley) is like Drax from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies if he was also the nicest guy you've ever met.  A handful of other characters make less of a splash, but should have their time in the sun eventually.

Visually, the animation style will take some getting used to, but so did Rebels.  That said, ship designs on the show are living up to my expectations.  I'm not sure what it is, but that red tie interceptor looks really cool.

Honestly, I don't have much else to say right now besides suggesting that it's worth giving a try.  I'm not sure how long, but right now, with this Amazon link You can subscribe to the entire first season for only 3 bucks!
