Wizard Barristers #09 — Sexy Times on the Swanboats

March 9th, 2014

 

I have no idea what that was even about.

Impressions:

Finding out the (supposed) truth of Ceci’s mom was kind of deflating. With the alternate personalities and conspiracy stuff and whatnot all floating around “She torched some cop for shooting her daughter while they were being held hostage” seems, well, kind of devoid of any of the intrigue the rest of the show has been hurling around without getting to the meat of anything. It’s probably a cultural thing. Or a wizard thing. Lord knows the law doesn’t make much sense in this show anyway.

Unfortunately, that was kind of it for interesting things in the episode, and that whole business was finished before the OP even played. Ceci spent the second half in particular just bouncing between men like an especially poorly dressed hooker, mostly complaining about nothing getting done. I sympathize, but I somehow don’t think the show has the same awareness. She’s hasn’t gotten any less grating when she throws temper tantrums about how she’s not a little kid either. Here’s an idea, girl. If you want to be taken seriously, don’t dress like you’re going out for a Wiggles concert or use the speech patterns of nine year olds. Then again, lord knows that fashion doesn’t make much sense in this world either. 

Next Episode:

Someone blow something up.

    That was disappointing.

  • algorithm says:

    I don’t even know how you can watch those characters without throwing up.

  • Sanjuro says:

    I don’t think that’s what really happened. Cecil probably killed the cop herself or something like that.

  • Aroduc says:

    It crossed my mind, but even that’s weak. Weaker even since I’m pretty sure being a kid and getting shot by someone covers a wide variety of sins, especially in a world of thermonuclear people wandering around all over, but I wouldn’t put it past the show to try some bad nonsense like “I had to spare her knowledge of that and instead traumatize her in a different, far more drawn out way.”

  • Guy says:

    Except given the justice system in this world, telling the truth about what happened would have gotten Cecil executed. I think some trauma was a justified price to pay if that is what happened.
