:lol: I didn't see Futerama but I did watch the Scifi Saturday movie from a couple of weeks back about Moby Dick but with dragons.

Not that great an episode, the end with mum-ra was ok; but the little adventure they were on was pretty weak and the end of that was horrible. The thing happens to pop right back up and eat only Lion-O so he can chop it open and get all the water back. Seemed like the animation and voice work was weaker this time as well.


It was almost like watching a different show that was shopped off to a different animation house.

The story was...interesting.

At first, I was just gonna dismiss it as some childish ass bullshit. But the idea that these creatures could live an entire life within the space of a day...while not an original concept, it was still rather compelling. And it's kinda amusing that in a show which seems mainly for children at this point, the Thundercats rush forth on what they know is a suicide charge, where the only hope they have is for a glorious death. Like Aragorn and Theoden in Helm's Deep. Only thing missing was "Let fell deeds awake, now for wrath, now for ruin and the red dawn!"

Expect Panthro when you see him.

But I find Lion-O's depiction to be inconsistent. It's almost as if the writers are in two different States trying to work with each other.

It was like watching two different episodes. They spend 2/3s of the story telling this moving story about the preciousness of life through the Petlars and it was a brilliant tale BTW. But then it was like some producer said "Hey waitaminute! We have to squeeze in the Thundercats Ho battlecry and a fight scene. Make it happen or else." and so they just kinda tacked that on the end. When they came running out of the briar batch at into the army I was really confused.

And was it just me or did Cheetara's rack look huge when they were sitting by the fire at the beginning of the episode? :shock:

Her tits were huge in the last episode too.

The charge didn't make much sense until you realize, like I said above, that it was a suicide charge. The Thundercats chose to embrace death in that moment. And by doing so, to spend the last coin of their lives on honor, glory and kicking as much ass as possible.

They obviously don't come right out and say this, because this show is ostensibly for kids. But that's basically what happened. The Thundercats are essentially saying, "Let's Roll."

If that's what they were trying to say then they did it wrong. I've seen suicide charges on film before and there is much more force to them and a greater depiction of "we're fucked but what the hell". This seemed too hesitant. Like the animators wanted to do a charge of the light brigade kinda thing but then chickened out at the last minutes because of the kiddies. Well, if you're afraid to show the scene right then don't show it at all. IMO they should have simply had the army break into the briar after the Petlars flew away, a fight ensued that the Thundercats can't avoid, and then Panthro charges in using the Thundertank's speed and pulls them out. I wasn't much of a fan of the Thundertank seemly defeating the entire army including numerous mechs. But I could see it rushing in quickly and thanks to it's heavy armor surviving a pounding long enough to evac the rest of the cats. But alas, it is what it is and it was still a far better episode then the last one.

It was a better episode. It wasn't greatness, but it was good. It's obvious they are doing some things for a younger audience but also trying to tell a story that might appeal to the older. I think they are having trouble with it, but I appreciate that they are trying.

I don't mind the Thundertank coming in and kicking ass. I just hope they don't change it next episode to being taken out by something really weak, really quick.

Well, plus there's only five guys on the team, two of whom are small children. So it's less Charge of the (entire) Light Brigade, and more Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, charging out to face the entire military with just a couple of guys.
