EUREKA SEVEN #30 -- Watch & Learn

Heh heh... they dig on engineers in this one.

As a note - - I don't crush on a lot of toon babes, but I've got to say that new bob Talho cuts for herself isn't doing her any favors.

Ha! As somebody with a number of relatives who’ve gone to polytechnic institutes, digs at engineers make me snicker in a very fond and special way. Yes, the mecha team taking daily breaks to head bang to an out-of-date track blasting on the loud speakers is likely one the keenest insights into real human behavior that this show has ever offered. Just so spot on.

Then again, it took that gag to finally make me realize how the commercial bumpers are designed to look like the cover of a record’s A Side and B Sides - - after 30 odd episodes of repetition - - so maybe I shouldn’t be goofing on anybody for being out of touch.

A more serious tract, then…

While we’re talking about realistic insights into human behavior, I’ve got to say that Holland and Talho’s relationship has been feeling a lot more authentic lately. Why’s that? Because they’re arguing incessantly!

Seriously, it turns out that the reason there’s been all this tense build-up about Renton’s sister’s history with Gekkostate simply because she was Holland’s ex. That’s why Talho got so testy about Renton would be putting “her blood” into him during that critical transfusion? At first, it seemed anti-climactic, but now I realize how brilliant it is for its prissyness. Brilliant and true.

I suppose the next lingering character mystery’s going to pertain to Maurice, who’s been gradually drifting away from his Mama. He isn’t with the other kids after that hilarious film reel (with its long overdue exposition,) and that would seem to bring full circle an arc that started when he got in trouble for getting lost in the streets however many episodes back. That slap Eureka gave me carried a lot more significance in the long run!

Watch this episode, "Change of Life’" here and decide for yourself, then read my comments on the previous episode here.

Maeter was the one who got lost and got slapped actually. Love the column by the way!

I may have not commented on all of the E7 W&L articles, but I've really enjoyed reading all of them.

@Tom_Pinchuk: so glad to know you read them...I hope you don't look at spoilers though. I thought you must at least read them though with your digs in the last couple.

Yes it does get some things right for human nature the pettiness for example though I had a similar reaction "REALLY THAT'S ALL THAT WAS ABOUT?" then I thought about some of the things I had gotten upset over....and had the oh right moment I expect was intended.

It is interesting seeing your responses to this can't wait for responses to some of the revs coming up. (As a scientist though must take some umbrage at your shot at engineers. Working to chase nature to her hiding places or come up with new uses for what we find when we do doesn't always leave time for silly things like pop culture).

I also don't get your use of abbes in the caption I don't remember anyone in this having a religious affiliation but I could be forgetting it...

Alamunon Feb. 9, 2012 at 4:15 p.m.

@zaldar: I assumed it was a typo for "babes".

zaldaron Feb. 10, 2012 at 8:53 a.m.

complicated typo babes to abbes and funny. Good to see it corrected though and that I didn't forget some abbey in the show...
