Episode 330 - Bubblegum Climax: Dark Horizon, chapters 3-4 and appendix

Episode 330: Bubblegum Climax: Dark Horizon, chapters 3-4 and appendix

Just gently reminding you once more that you might not want to stand around in the exploding factory.

Dark Horizon is a scathing demonstration of what happens when international agencies try to overstep jurisdictional boundaries through the actions of a single rouge operative following a personal agenda, as per illustrated through the medium of robots blowing stuff up. And boy, is there a lot of that to go around; so much so that the fix needed to cut extraneous matters (Like plot, story, characterization and nuance) to fit it all in. So while agent lly (Ully? Illy? Willy?) conducts her personal investigation/crazed revenge trip, Leon props her up, Sylia goes to a shareholder meeting and Nene does the computer stuff that is apparently her only defining trait, as she really doesn’t have anything else to do anyway. All this plus the same fight scene dragged out ad infinitum! It’s wiz, chummer.

Episode 329 - Bubblegum Climax: Dark Horizon, chapters 1-2

Episode 329: Bubblegum Climax: Dark Horizon, chapters 1-2

To hide the evil robot factory, they disguised it as a dairy. And then to conceal that, they disguised it as a Bioweapons lab. Nobody will suspect a thing.

As civil war rocks the generic Euro-Middle Eastern nation of Alafaya, armies of evil killer death robots commit atrocities such as stomping prize azaleas and crossing against the lights. With international authorities powerless to stop them, it’s going to need one woman to take the law into her own hands. Enter lly (It’s pronounced how it’s spelt) a gratuitous pet OC who is willing to steal top secret prototypes and Shanghai a cop into her mind-numbingly illegal operation. And since it’s Leon, he’s okay with all of this because, you know, girls. So head on down to your local secret evil robot factory and maybe compare the benefits of driving a hybrid soccer mom van for Bubblegum Climax: Dark Horizon. Oh yeah, there’s also some chicks in suits called the Knight Sabers or something in there too.

Episode 328 - All because of a Snow Day

Episode 328: All because of a Snow Day

I'll sit here alone wearing nothing but a shirt in a girls' dormitory room. Can't wait to explain myself when I'm inevitably discovered.

It's not easy being Spider-Man. You've got to deal with a job, schoolwork, family pressures, your own rogues gallery, random attacks from the Juggernaut and being abducted by the X-Men. And that's why a teleporting mutant who forgets she can teleport decides that he needs to be paired up with the first person on hand, who just happens to be X-23. Oh sure, they've got nothing in common. And yes, he's got a bad history with clones. And okay, they can't even pick out a movie together. But they're young, they're pliable, and the real love interests have been conveniently shuffled aside to force along the plot. So as long as her clone dad doesn't kill them and the telepath doesn't read anyone's mind they should be fine to stare awkwardly at each other and engage in forced comedy antics or something. Just remember that this came about All Because of a Snow Day.
