Yamato 2199 Group Watch – Episode 19


Episode 18 – They’re Here

Screenshot (450)Not an action filled episode, but a prelude to the action. Not much happens in some ways…  But it’s filled with interesting character moments, and brings past threads and events into the current context.  Most importantly, it’s setting the stage as 2199 moves towards its climax.

Yamato 2199 Group Watch – One Week Pause

Screenshot (443).png

My deepest apologies, but I’m going to have to take a break this week.

Last night, one of our guinea pigs spent the night at the vet’s in intensive care…  We adopted Miss Molly mostly fully grown in April of 2012, so she’s getting pretty close to seven years old.  That’s pretty old for a piggie (80-85 in human terms?), and her health is increasingly frail.  With the problems she’s already having, last night was pretty scary, I didn’t sleep well, and my head isn’t exactly in a place for creative work.

Hopefully she comes home today (watch my twitter for updates), but the future is increasingly cloudy.  (Not helped by having another pig with inoperable cancer.)

Yeah, probably more than you wanted to know, sorry.

Anyhow, the short version is that it was one h*ll of an action packed episode…  Scott’s review, linked below, covers all that pretty well.  Hit the link and give it a read!  There’s some stuff I want to talk about, but I’ll add it to next week’s post.

After last week’s action packed episode, this week is more one of quiet tension… But an important one I think, both in terms of the larger plotlines in progress and in terms of characterization.
