[ Back to Episode Reviews ]
I realize more and more as I write these reviews, that thereís really
not much story to these early episodes. Thereís one main plot point and
the rest is either action or running to get away or to the plot point.
In this case, Zeta and Ro wait in a convention center for Dr. Selig; but
as soon as they get there, itís non-stop chasing from Bennet and crew.
I donít want it to sound like I donít like the chasing, because I love
it. Chasing in any show or movie adds suspense; maybe heíll find Selig,
but itís either talk to Selig or get zapped in the back with an
electrical charge device. Nothing ever works out for the in-trouble
hero, not even until the very end; but here he comes close. He sees Dr.
Selig for one brief instant as everyone evacuates the building due to
some radiation leak or something like it.
Having said the aboveÖyouíre not going to find much more below here.
Itís a very simple plot, we get our first look at Dr. Selig and the
usual season one animation and color palette. I canít say it was a bad
episode or a good episode; it sets base for future, better episodes, so
whose to say it wasnít important overall?
