Star Wars Resistance Season 2 Episode 10

I haven’t got Disney+ but, so I have never been in a position to watch The Mandalorian. It sounds superb. Everybody appears to be having a lot enjoyable watching this thrilling, entertaining house Western that additionally features a Child Yoda, the right icon and meme-bait that is throughout social media today.

As an alternative, I am watching Star Wars Resistance. It is an absolute hit-or-miss present, with extra misses for positive, and “Kaz’s Curse” isn’t any exception in that regard. I’m a giant supporter of the concept that animated exhibits could be as highly effective, important, and memorable as live-action exhibits, and I believe that an animated Star Wars present could possibly be as sharp as its live-action counterpart(s).

“Kaz’s Curse” is an argument in opposition to that.

This episode is each clichéd and admittedly, silly. Largely, it is pointless. I preserve harping on the truth that that is Star Wars Resistance‘s last season, as such it ought to be getting ready its endgame before later, however the final couple of episodes have been treating its approaching, climactic denouement prefer it’s no huge deal, with episodes that hardly trouble to scratch the floor of its tough, harrowing scenario.

As soon as once more, the Colossus is barely holding it collectively, and the First Order is on the market chasing it down, and Tam is struggling mightily together with her rising reluctance inside stated group, however “Kaz’s Curse” seems to simply run by way of the identical precise beats as any “made up curse causes the protagonist to lose confidence, notices extra unhealthy crap than typical to occur” plot line that you’ve got seen earlier than. We be taught nothing. Nothing new or thrilling occurs. It isn’t humorous. It is even bizarre avoids the extra apparent beats that would pull one thing fascinating from its premise.

Every little thing about it’s clumsy, foolish, or frustratingly nonsensical. Why is Katz playing within the first place? Why did the pirates act just like the “curse” was such a giant deal, solely to be laughing about it later? Why aren’t extra individuals involved concerning the sudden blackouts which might be occurring on the ship? The ending, which exhibits one other blackout after Kaz’s curse is cured, suggests there’s extra taking place right here. I am at a loss as to why nobody even appears to do not forget that the Fireball, Kaz’s ship, is meant to be a barely practical car, which raises the query about the way it’s been working for this lengthy thus far.

Referencing the Fireball’s poor historical past of performance would have flavored the episode a bit, and maybe a extra intelligent script may have performed round with the concept that Katz IS in some methods fortunate to have survived a lot, to have discovered a lot, to have completed as a lot as he did, in a meta form of means. “Kaz’s Curse” does neither. It makes him look dumb, it makes the Aces appear like assholes (after they simply heap complaints on him after shedding a Guavian scout), and it makes the pirates much more ineffective than typical.

Even Mika Gray served no objective. She acknowledges that most individuals on the ship are idiots, and simply exploits them for credit, which makes her distinctive and particular connection to the pressure appear like a pure sham. Which, actually, could possibly be neatly, well utilized, a little bit of a intelligent bait-and-switch if the present introduced in a Jedi-adjacent character, just for them to be a conman. Nevertheless it’s clear that together with her interactions with Katz, there’s extra occurring together with her, but it surely’s onerous to muster up any means to care about her–or something on this episode, actually.

Katz will get the curse nonsense into his head, and Mika will get it out of him using shrug-worthy, Jedi-Koan double-speak. “Kaz’s Curse” is not a lot a foul episode as it’s a lazy one, and with the season nearly completed, it is largely unhappy to see the creators stoop their strategy to the end line.
