And Suzuka's sitting this one out.
Now, now. Calm down, everyone.
Stop stating the obvious, security guard.
No, Melfina, you don't have to wear that.
I don't even want to know what Fred would do with a picture of Gene in that outfit.
No clue what you're getting at here. I watched IGPX when it first came out, gave it a fair shot, and haven't had any desire to see it since. And an artist can make good and bad products. Case in point: Francis Ford Coppola made Godfather and Jack.
Hope things go well for you, Gilliam.
And Melfina wants to Google herself.
Well, no McDougall, but look who they did find.
That waitress looks familiar from behind...
I told you she'd be back.
I think she found you, Gene.
Saying "I found you" 4 times in a row, Aisha?
Control is an illusion, Aisha.
Oh, Melfina. You may not have a Wikipedia entry, but we still love you.
Poor Aisha. She should get a good caboose.
So the race is about to start.
So this Space Race involves traverses multiple planets. The original Space Race would blush.
Thus starteth the race.
Of course, it's an orienteering race, so they don't all start at the same time.
And of course, Aisha's in it as well.
Of course it's MacDougall.
And old Toonami never told you Suzuka was in a casino.
Khan makes a small appearance. Yes, yes...
And so Gene and company are starting to catch the attention of various members of the conflict by its involvement in the race.
Oh, then there's this guy. The one with the goatee.
And we're off!
Something tells me he's an eccentric, that he must be.
"I's just like jumping rope, only we're skipping planets!"
Rope is not known for high gravitational pull.
And here's dumbass stunt #1.
For next week.
I thought that this episode was okay. The race was a lot bigger and more difficult to get in than I thought it would be. Suzuka not joining in on the race made sense. She seems to be there just to help out the group when she can and because she probably admires Gene, but I do like the scene where she places money on the Outlaw Star. It showed that she had faith in the group.
I wasn't expecting Fred to show up, but that did take care of the sponser issue they had. Although, I actually thought that Fred wanted Gene to wear that really weird outfit instead of Melfina. I really liked seeing Melfina and Gilliam bond with trying to find out information about her. It obviously wouldn't be that easy to get the answers, but Gilliam showed a lot more emotion and empathy than I expected from him. It was a nice and short emotional moment that helped to flesh out the characters some more.
I was wondering when Aisha would show up again, but their reactions to seeing each other were pretty funny. She'll probably cause more trouble during the race. Gene was willing to jump into a dangerous situation just to find that ship. Obviously, no one would know why he recognizes it so well, so I wonder if/when they'll find out about his backstory. Gene was pulling a pretty risky move just to get ahead of the race. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.
