E59 – Sailor Moon R Part 3



“FOOLS! YOU’LL NEVER DEFEAT THE POWER OF THE DOOM PHANTOM!”

Time travel, internecine villain struggles, and heroes-turned-bad set “The Lost Episodes” apart from the rest of Sailor Moon R, but maybe not far enough apart. Meanwhile, Michael signs Wiseman’s praises, Peter appreciates another animal-focused episode, and both hosts share a laugh about New Year’s Evil.

Also included: The Ultimate Life Form, Serena’s driver’s ed, and badass future Rini.

Next week: Minisode 3, where we discuss an audience submitted topic.

Thundercats Grab Bag will release on Feb. 28.


MS02 – Gundam Build… Divers?

Serena never gets a break, does she? She’s constantly berated by her friends, her cat, her boyfriend dumps her, and now even a girl from the future is giving her crap.

Yep, life is tough for a Sailor Scout, and things only get tougher. Meanwhile, Michael absurdly compares Sailor Moon villains to those from Zeta Gundam, Peter reveals a strange choice of introduction for a new character, and both hosts try to determine what Darien’s problem is.

The Garlic Junior Saga takes a surprisingly Halloween-y turn, and it results in something a little different.
