Ro: So? It's a pile of paper.
Zee: Actually, it's what they called "money." It's also known as "bread," "dough," "moola," "green stuff," "samolia"...
Ro: Dang! Lotta names!
Zee: I guess they liked it.

Screen Grabs




This would definitely rank amongst the more boring episodes of The Zeta Project. It served no purpose in the overall story and was just another “side quest” for Zeta and Ro. Instead of another rousing chase, we got a tale about an annoying spoiled rich kid and his fed-up body guard who ends up kidnapping him and demanding a ransom. Once the ransom is delivered, he planned on killing the kid anyway.

I think this may very well be one of the shortest reviews I’ve ever written; there is really just nothing to say about this episode. Animation was sub-par, the characters were annoying and pretty much jack squat, aside from seeing Zee and Ro in new outfits, happened.
