Kino’s Journey 2017 #01 — Welcome to Sandford

October 6th, 2017

 

Someone took entirely the wrong message from Hot Fuzz.

Impressions:

Well, there's certainly a cultural divide here. Still, it doesn't take a recent mass shooting to be more than a little put off by a character ranting at length about how much he wants to kill people for kicks, and how much he admires mass murderers. It was then followed by about 16 minutes of pure blandness. The land is so great, and peaceful, and perfect in every way. And then, at the end, it's revealed that it's because this is the NRA's utopia, where everyone is armed to the teeth, a crack shot vigilante, and it's the presence of eighteen billion guns and instant mob justice means that there's only harmony, and everyone instantly metes out mob justice on only the bad ones. Every time. A truly flawless, pure society, gleefully killing everybody who displeases them, luckily this time, someone who deserves it. Please don't notice the lack of black people. It's a sloppy blowjob to every NRA vigilante fantasy imaginable, complete with Kino happily giving it a full-throated cleanup suck off at the end.

Setting all that bit of horribleness aside, half of the episode was still a fat lot of complete boredom. Kino sits and eats cake. We already have been told the land is perfect at least four or five times by every speaking character imaginable, and gotten more than one montage of how idyllic it is. We can probably go without the tea and sweets to further drive that home, or the very, very long awkward pauses while our still bland main character… who occasionally turns CGI because animation is hard… simply stares instead of upholding her part of the conversation. And now, here's a closeup of a teapot. Unless, of course, the point was not those at all, but to simply waste time. It's a maybe 10 minute segment if they weren't going to delve into how messed up proliferance of weapons and mob rule actually are stretched out to consume the entire episode, with every 'original' thought it had being superficial power fantasy nonsense presented as societal perfection.
