Episode 26: Tutorials!

January 25th, 2006  |  Published in old and busted

Tutorials!Well … first things first… Episode 26 puts us back in the box. Whew. I felt like I was wandering through the wilderness on a treadmill for a few days… looking for the Canaan of the Mother Arc. Now I’ve found it.

The Buck Rogers … march … is nearing its conclusion. I think there’s but one episode left. Last night’s included “Buck tangles with ‘The Planet of Death'” and “Buck is put on trial for causing the nuclear holocaust that occurred just after he left Earth.”

The former was slightly less horrific than the bulk of recent episodes, and the latter was, while troubled, much better than anything else in the entire second season. I mean … we called the twist about 15 minutes in, but there were no satyrs in fur pants or dwarves in this episode. On the other hand, the footage re-use bordered on egregious. They must have been spending the effects budget on cocaine and hookers once they realized there was no way they were going to get picked up for a third season.

What will come after Buck?
