    Last time: everyone was doing early 90s Martin Lawrence imitations (yup, older than the Budweiser meme).

    So Ilana is watching tribal dancers with Race Bannon. Well, I'm lost.

    What? Heck no! It's the Monarch! Can't you tell by the butterfly wings?

    Yes, it's Race Bannon.

    Jeez, Lance just get's blamed for everything. It's like a Cinderella story with this guy. I guess that's why he's grown to not give a [bleep] anymore.

    Oh, Lance. Always getting blamed for things you didn't do.

    "Why do we always meet like this?"

    Because your soldiers are a bunch of jerkoffs who always jump to conclusions.

    Oh...well at least this time there was a good reason for the commanding officer not to "believe" Lance.

    Dang. How many times did they use that sword "klang" sound effect in this episode?

    "You were always a good student...too bad I was a lousy teacher!"

    Who would have guessed that THIS would be her very first driving lesson?

    "Oh, and by the way--I CHEATED ON MY MIDTERMS!!"

    I wondered when Octus would show up.

    SBT has a unique of doing flashback episodes, in that they just do it. There is no setup, there is no remember the time when we, nope non of that.

    When I was surprised that "Race Barron" lived at least for now. He might be dead by now, but still I was so thining he is not going make through the episode.

    Okay good episode, next week is an episode that I am not looking forward to, I am dreeding it, not that it is a bad written episode, but just oh why, why god, why. But it is something we all saw signs of, but sill doesn't make it any less painful.

    Looking back at this episode, this might have been a better first episode than the one we got since there would have been more action and a better introduction for at least Lance and Ilana. At the same time, since I don't think most of the action in the series is at the level it was for this episode, it might have been a bit misleading in a sense as the first episode. Still, the action was great, especially the sword fight between Lance and his teacher. The villain himself was pretty boring and we didn't learn why he was willing to betray his people, but the fight was good and I forgot that that Lance killed him off. It was interesting to see how the war started and the goodbye scene between Ilana and her father was touching.

    Yeah, it may possibly be a better first episode, but honestly, I'm fine with "Escape to Sherman High" the way it is because it still sets up the premise while getting across the message that Galaluna has been invaded. That's why "Escape From Galaluna" doesn't really work for me. It's exactly the problem I have with Origin Stories; explaining things we already knew. We know Ilana is a kind princess, we know Lance had a troubled past, so no one believing in him until it was too late was expected. We know that Galaluna would fall. Granted, seeing how it happens and how Lance/Ilana/Octus escape is new, but we know the results. It's very light on story and unnecessary as a whole. I guess the only major addition is Ilana's bodyguard who if I remember (I'm recalling all this from memory) is still MIA, so God knows if he was intended to appear in Season Two or something. Sadly a moot point now.

    However, it's got probably the best action scene out of all the episodes. Lance vs. his teacher is fast, intense, and extremely well-choreographed. I was blown away.

    I can definitely see how this episode does come off as unnecessary in the grand scheme story-wise since we didn't really learn anything new. Maybe it would have made more sense if they had gotten a second season. I think that's why I kind of would have liked it more if it was the first episode since it would provide something new with introducing the characters. Escape to Sherman High does that as well and it is a good first episode, but this being the first a two-part premiere would have been pretty cool. Like I said before, it might be a bit misleading when the focus is on the group fighting monsters on Earth instead of the fight in Galaluna and the action here is the best out of series, at least from what I remember, so maybe it was for the best to put this in the middle of the season instead.

    Well the way I see it, the debate on weather this should have been the first episode, is simialr to the debate of weather "Titans Go" should have been the first episode of Teen Titans.

    I missed Race? Drats, I missed the episode because my Mom wanted to watch Mr. Deeds. One more reason to dislike Adam Sandler.
