Star Wars! This was an amazing stream with some great discussion. (I need to change my kinja name...)
I just wanted to bring to attention that Season 2 of Star Wars Resistance starts October 6th. It’s a great show with a lot of really deep cuts to the EU that we know and love from the Jedi Knight / X-Wing era. Kaz’s Fireball is a modified Z-95, and his rival flies something like looks like the R-41. Rivals in the X-Wing universe. The people making the show know their stuff, and cram it to the brim with references.
Also, Poe is a cutie, BB-8 is in there, and it’s genuinely funny. It’s a kids show, sure, but like any good kids show it knows when to get dark.
If you’re on the fence, I’d suggest watching Episode 11 - Bibo. It’s not the best episode, might be one of the worst, but it gives each character a chance to show off their personality and it includes shots inside the ships of the Aces. If you can appreciate that episode, then you’ll like the whole show for what it is.
The season finale shakes things up REAL good, and I don’t want to spoil it. Season 2 is the last one, and it ties directly into RoS, so we’ll see what happens.
