Wiz Bars #08 — Attack at Fish Story

March 2nd, 2014


Who names their hotel Fish Story?


I’m really not sure why these last two episodes couldn’t have been just one. Because they needed more time to fit all the Canadian stereotypes in? Come on. Her home is a log cabin in the mountains with pictures of maple leaves on the wall. They have bloody maple leaf shaped flasks. A photo burst into a cloud of maple leaves. I’m shocked they didn’t have a pet moose in the house or walk around with hockey sticks.

The second half was action packed at least, but both sides of it lacked the context it needed to give it weight. Everyone was just jumped out of basically nowhere. The hitchhiker ended up being evil after all because of thinly fabricated nonsense on the spot. When you have to explain character motivations after the climax is already over, something has gone terribly wrong with your plotting. I might have forgiven the rather abrupt nuclear ending for the hitchhiker side of it, as abhorrent a cliche as the “Let me tell you something very important BLARGH I’M DEAD” is, but they used that to resolve the pyro side too right after and I just ended up annoyed.

Next Episode:

Mom stuff.

    I think you meant “…a pet moose in the hoose”. Get it together Aroduc!

    I’d be annoyed about the ending, too, if it wasn’t for the fact that it looked freaky as hell. I like freaky.

    But yeah, what is UP with Moyo? She’s actually quite awesome compared to…fucking Sasori.
