Honestly, they just need to hold out until gender-bent Gordon Ramsay is born.
Ugh. Stupid alternate setup ate my first post. Oh well, take two.
Easily the dullest episode of this season so far. Horizon and Gin did what they could to liven it up at the start, but almost all of the last half was spent on a treaty regarding England’s crappy food
supply. And… uh… that’s really about it. England shows up to beg for food and then… uh… they come to an agreement over food. They put a little effort into it every now and then trying to liven it up, financier triple axels, but too little and nowhere near enough to liven up what was otherwise about 10 straight minutes of talking heads and watching people IM each other. Besides that, I guess we got the ‘reveal’ that Tenzou’s masked stranger is actually a blonde girl smuggling watermelons. She doesn’t look like she missed any trips to the buffet line.
And yeah, that’s al. Horizon and Gin were the only real stars of the episode. I’d have rather them just cut away from the debates entirely and only cutting back to the random figure skating moves or other weirdness (which is really all we needed) and show more of Gin’s attempts to take care of and/or shave parts of Muneshige and/or Horizon molesting Toori’s seaweed. Hopefully that’s the last of the dull political stuff before hey all all play nice and team up to
oppress the Irish fight the Spanish. Weren’t we supposed to be sinking an armada?
