Star Wars Resistance: Season 1 Episodes 12 – 13 (TV/Television Review) – A Mixed Return To Season 1

The trailer for the second half of Star Wars Resistance Season 1 was fantastic. It established a darker tone than we have seen so far in Resistance and it definitely increased my expectations for ‘Bibo’ and ‘Dangerous Business’, the episodes of Resistance that would kick-off the second half of Season 1. From the trailer, it seemed as though the First Order/Resistance conflict would be the overriding focus for the remainder of Season 1.

My Thoughts On Season 1 Episodes 12 – 13 Of Star Wars Resistance

If you have been watching Resistance, then you can therefore imagine how utterly disappointed I was with ‘Bibo’. It was twenty minutes of my life that I will never get back. Without a shadow of a doubt, ‘Bibo’ is the worst episode of Resistance so far and it was a terrible way to start the second half of Season 1 in my opinion.

In this episode, Neeku adopts a small sea creature and he calls him Bibo. The entire episode revolves around this creature – why? The show has some very interesting storylines going on. Why did we need this filler episode? In the grand scheme of things, it was an utterly pointless waste as far as I am concerned.

The only mildly interesting things of note that happened in ‘Bibo’ were that Synara came closer to finding out the true identity of Kaz and one of the children from Tehar may be force sensitive. Still, this is nowhere near enough in terms of importance to make ‘Bibo’ a necessary episode to watch. For me, this is the first bad episode of Resistance and one that you can absolutely skip.

Thankfully, compared to ‘Bibo’, ‘Dangerous Business’ was a huge improvement in quality. In ‘Dangerous Business’, Kaz is looking after the Acquisitions store and he has to deal with a shady alien who steals an important item for the First Order. This item is used for drilling and excavation and I can only assume that this item will be somewhat linked to Starkiller Base and the upcoming galactic invasion.

My Final Thoughts On Season 1 Episodes 12 – 13 Of Star Wars Resistance

Because of the links to the First Order storyline, ‘Dangerous Business’ was a step in the right direction because it was slightly more in tune with the tone set by the trailer for the remaining episodes in Season 1 of Star Wars Resistance. I pray that we do not get another ‘Bibo’ in Season 1.
