Isn’t it about time to start addressing the evil crow?
Not to forgo my usual literary eloquence but… Do something! Dooooooooooooooo somethiiiiiiiiiiiing! Get out of this goddamned holding pattern you’ve been since episode 5 already. You could have cut this and at least the last three episodes and I don’t think a single thing would be lost. Lord knows they don’t ever learn anything or develop at all. It’s not corny enough to be funny, nor trying hard enough (or at all) with the touchy feeling melodramatic moments to be either atrocious enough for me to enjoy making fun of it or, god forbid, actually passable in that regard. At least at the start, the plot was moving. New girl every week and all. Marshalling the forces. Whining about tomatoes. Etc. Now… Ugh.
Good god. The ’plot’ of this episode was about Les Yellow and Les Blue going on a date. Then essentially another date in return for whoring herself out to other people. Then losing barrettes. And then they were given back just in time to one shot the Alone rocketing down from low orbit which, and wait for this… Did nothing but shoot lasers and explode. They didn’t even pretend like the barrettes were even lost. Oh, and since the episode was a little short, we got to sit through three transformation sequences again to pad things out. It may have taken longer to go through the stock footage than it did to actually kill the thing.
