Somehow, it doesn’t seem like too smart of an idea to put kids in your giant mecha suit whilst you’re trying to smuggle it in somewhere. I mean, they’re not even going to get to enjoy seeing all the funny floats at the carnival! It’s just a lose-lose prospect for everybody involved.
We get to dive a little deeper into the lore of the Vodarac cult and the compact drives (which are still a little weird to see as part of ancient history. More on that in a sec.) I might ask some questions about some things that were somewhat unclear in this episode but, by now, I’ve gotten used to how this show deals out information, so I know well enough to wait for the explanations that are surely coming in an episode or two. It was certainly surprising to finding that the “great wall” that’s been built up so ominously over these past few episodes was basically just the Vodarac’s equivalent of the Wailing Wall, and not some front of trapar energy.
Getting back to what I was saying about history in this show, one thing I’ve found a little funny about this future is the anachronisms - - or “future-anachronisms” if that’s a better term. Like how Holland was using a pay phone a few episodes back and, now, this episode we have Stoner going over the proofs for a printed magazine instead of the layout of a website or some such. These things would already be looking quaint in the 2000’s, yet they still manage to survive into this far flung epoch?
Actually, the answer’s probably there in how fond the crew is for vinyl. They're going for vintage in all areas of this show, clearly.
Also, if you have a question about this episode, this show or anything else (anything!) and you'd like it answered on the site, go on and post in this thread.
