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.
