THIS WEEK: Sven and Van reach the midpoint of Season 2 of Cyborg Soldier, encountering ethical dilemmas and time-cops along the way. In addition, we discuss how we would restructure the second season; Joe Shimamura continues to gently disengage from reality; Dr. Gilmore doesn't know thermodynamics as well as he knows robotics; things get lost in translation; Black Ghost finally returns (again) (for the umpteenth time); the crew rants about Black Ghost not understanding teamwork, and Sven's G.B. impression could really use some work.
