    Rebels and Resistance are both TV-Y7 shows so I don't think its a matter of them being geared towards different audiences. To me, its just a matter of Rebels being a hit while Resistance has fallen flat. It doesn't mean the show can't be saved or that I'll stop watching it. I'm optimistic that it will get more interesting as the story-line slowly develops. The Poe & Kaz episode before the break was pretty good. But overall the show has just been boring.

    BTW- I did the binge after not watching it for a while and I agree that was more enjoyable than tuning in each week. In my opinion this is because very little happens in any single episode.

    My thoughts exactly. The plot thus far can be boiled down to 3 points (Kaz gets recruited, he learns that the FO are mining deadlonite, he learns that the FO are attempting to take control of the Colossus). Everything else is filler and until they get to Starkiller destroying the New Republic nothing too exciting is supposed to happen. I thought Rebels S1 was very much the same. Until the Inquisitor showed up at midseason it seemed kind of aimless while you got acquainted with the characters.

    I never watched it. But I would like to, maybe if they show it on Netflix.

    I might binge it on Disney streaming this summer, but I also quit after a few episodes (I watched 3-4, can't remember exactly how many). It's weird, but I loved Rebels from the start. Even though Ezra was annoying. I loved The Clone Wars from the start. Even though Ahsoka was bloody annoying. But something about Resistance just annoyed me in the wrong way and I gave up. Hopefully it will get better or I'll enjoy it when I get around to binging it this summer.

    I like the show a lot, the animation is great, and I’m enjoying the world building around the Resistance and the FO. Also I find the show works really well when watching multiple episodes at a time, wait till a few episodes are out and then watch them all at once. When the first season is all out it’ll probably be a really great binge show

    New forum member, and this is my first post.

    I did watch Season 1 with my seven-year-old daughter, and we enjoyed it very much. I liked the slower-than-expected pace as it gave ample breathing room for world-building and character development, both of which paid off well by the end of the season. My daughter loved seeing more of BB-8, and Kaz and Torra quickly became her favorite characters.

    I bought her several Resistance action figures, and we've spent some time playing with them together. This, to me, is what Star Wars should be all about!

    Bring on Season 2!

    I'm paused somewhere in the episode 4 or 5 zone I think.

    I'm not sour on it but it doesn't demand attention either. There is little to no gravity to the show so far so it easy to lose track of it.

    I had actually forgotten about it and it popped into my head just a couple days ago to catch up.

    I haven't seen it yet but I'm definitely looking forward to binge watching it when we finally get Disney+ over here (which I hope isn't too long after the US... I need Star Wars!)

    I've seen a couple of episodes but I don't have easy access to it yet. Was hoping for a Blu-ray soon but that's looking doubtful sadly...

    If it had been available for cheap like it was in the US (I'm in the UK) I would have bought it digitally immediately. I love the art style (the somewhat anime-inspired look + whole pilots/flying aspect is right up my street, as you could probably guess if you're at all familiar with where my username/avatar come from...).

    I've seen the entire first season and, well, as a show made for (younger) kids it's good. For 40 yo "fans" - it's most certainly not. I still enjoyed it for what it is.

    I've watched the entire first season And enjoyed it for what it is.. It is directed more towards the younger demographic.. But i still find it entertaining!

    It started of a bit slow.. But it got better, at least in my Humble opinion.. And i am looking forward to season two :)

    It was released on DVD but apparently there are no plans for it to be released on BluRay.

    I plan to watch Resistance Season 1 on Disney+. I probably will tend to it over CW and Rebels because those will require longer binges.

    This show goes to very great pains to make its protagonist a complete idiot until very near the end of the 1st season. And the green guy doesnt help either. I watched the 1st season when i got Disney plus, and ive gotta say, after how much I loved rebels, i was expecting so much more from this. I'll get around to season 2 after its on streaming but it's no rush for me. Not really sad to hear this one fizzled out.
