    Well can't blame you since the hand tail does look a like yet when i saw Ahuizotl didn't think of any character i seen before.

    Indeed, i know some animes that have similar plots and Naruto is just one of them but like you said since it's one of the most popular animes, people will go with that.

    Anyway back with the episode, I think like many that Drew threw TV since she's used to throwing TVs since season 1 lol. I can't wait to see whats next for Zak.

    Indeed. I believe that was the first time that Zak has ever done that, and even though the scene only lasted a few seconds, I believe that may very well have been the most important scene in the entire episode. It’s too early to speculate, but it seems that Zak is going to change for the worse as he becomes more and more familiar with the powers of Kur.

    Zak has attempted to dominate Zon before, but it was not nearly so casual and expedient. That attempt, I think, was simple recklessness combined with an exceeding disapproval of her choice in boyfriends. :) This time with Fisk though, was the first time he's dominated his brother in anything other than training, and certainly the first time he's done so with a totally calm "what? I needed to hurry, don't worry about it" attitude.

    No, but in the beginning, the one guy said (from what I can remember):

    "Do not worry, darling, I will find the problem."

    Or something like that. Meh. I can remember exact quotes in English, but not in Spanish. :sweat:

    Hello all. Thank you for the analysis of episode 203. And, yes, it is *officially* episode 203, despite many fans thinking we are in a third season.

    To answer a couple of questions and clear up any misconceptions, I have never seen an episode of Naruto. The Secret Saturdays has many inspirations, but modern anime/manga isn't one of them. Of course, some heroic themes are common between many adventure shows, so it doesn't surprise me that there are other 'monster inside the hero' shows out there. And the Ahuizotl design is based on actual ancient accounts, not anime characters.
    Also, for clarification, the last line in this episode is in fact spoken by Doc, despite the CC error. And, yup, it was Drew who tossed the TV (though there is more than one in the Airship) in frustration with Zak.

    I figured it was her. She has got one nasty temper. But I am wondering, does the Saturday's airship get internet? Many people are thinking that Zak will get information from the web, but how will he if they do not have internet? Or, can it get internet if Fisk does a similar thing to another receiver?

    Also, I am not buying the host theory about Kur. Zak is Kur, not Kur's host.

    The Secret Scientists are not going to let Zak saving Miranda Grey keep them from trying to capture Zak, right? I do not think that one time saving them will change their minds.

    Also, does any one know what Bunyips are? I found them in the description for the next episode but am unsure of what they are. Are they like gremlins?

    They're not. Heck, they had to keep Miranda tied up until they got clear of the village, she wanted to catch Zak so much.

    I think there needs to be some GOOD reason why the Secret Scientists are so deadset on catching Kur, beyond the fact that he's potentially dangerous. Some tragedy in one of their pasts involving Kur, or something. Otherwise it seems like character derailment to me. Maybe I haven't been watching closely enough, though, but still I think they're being jerks beyond the pale. It's getting to the point where ABBEY Gray would be more grateful of being rescued like that than Miranda was, and Abbey seems to be one of the archvillains now.

    I don't see any out-of-characterness what with the Secret Scientists being obsessed with capturing Kur. The entire first season was spent telling us how dangerous and evil Kur is, and now it's out that Zak is that dangerous and evil cryptid. You saw how willing they were to turn on Zak and Fisk in Paris is Melting when they perceived a threat, so I'd say their actions are perfectly in-character.

    I'd say that if it was some random child who was revealed to be Kur, even the Saturdays would be torn about what the right thing to do was. You'll note that the Scientists after Zak are, barring Epsilon, the most hard-nosed of the bunch. I'm certain there are other Scientists who are torn: they don't think what they're doing is right but can't think of any alternatives.

    Actually, I can imagine Cheechoo going after Zak. He may like him, but he seems pliable.

    I would think that the Secret Scientists would agree that ARGOST seems to be more dangerous than Kur, on the simple basis of:

    # of Secret Scientists killed by Argost: 43
    # of Secret Scientists killed by Kur: 0

    Logically they should agree to stop going after Zak until Argost is dealt with.

    They think Argost is dead, and Argost's life dream is to take control of the world using kur, so they assume he's bad inherently.

    They have to know Argost is alive now, he just showed up on Weird World.

    The bunyip i'm familiar with is a character out of Australian folklore. I think it was first sighted back in the 1800's.

    Same here, but did they have to toss the TV overboard? Haven't they ever heard of V-chips and parental bock systems?

    That was just Drew being Drew. (She was the one who tossed out the TV.) She can be a tad extreme at times.

    Whats the fun in that? I like Drew's method of punishing her kid better than just putting a plain old V-chip XD.
