Where exactly do they find all these psychopaths?
With the bathing suit chapter over, it’s time to move back to this show’s strength,
body suits so tight that you wouldn’t even need to remove them to have sex nationalism! And a healthy dose of technobabble exposition. Because no matter how on the verge of destruction the Earth is, those evil Soviets hate everyone, even themselves. And Sweden too apparently. Must be their hot chocolate. The first half was exceedingly dull. In Russia now. New weapon. Nobody thinks it’s a good fit. Got to test it anyway. ‘Bonding’ over the desire to not see each other die. A sentiment you’d think they’d have reached about 5 episodes ago. And there’s the first half down.
A little more futzing around before we reach the last third where we shift gears and move on to… Soviet military rapists, women included, picking on Inia and Kryska for being Russian. At this point, the Soviet military has those two, some mad scientists, a pack of rapists, and a couple of guys who are suspiciously familiar with Slavic mythology. I’ll just assume that all the non-psychopathic Soviets died in the vodka drought of 1999 after the BETA got into the strategic reserves. It’d also be nice to see a little bit more… or any… of the Scarlet’s berserker side again since that was, you know, the first impression of them. Getting menaced by a freckled Georgian isn’t doing their image any good.
