The article title also fits for another reason; because Gene is a bit of a Dexter this episode, despite not ever being zapped by an in-series variation of the Infanto Ray.
Points to you if you understood the reference of my article title without researching and why I used it.
Holy shit, this episode is fucking adorable, and also perhaps now either the second or third best in the series. We had yet to get to Jim in terms of character development in this series, with most of his role being in support and foil to Gene’s scattershot ambitions. But now, with only six episodes left we get one, and boy does it not disappoint. Why is that really?
In this episode, wherein I spent a lot of time on that bookend material probably nobody appreciates (and likely because a lot of it is a callback to a long since deceased comic strip I did), I take on the 2006 action-scifi title, Coyote Ragtime Show! It's pretty much cut from the same cloth as similar shows (that were out of vogue by the time this came out), just not the best part of that cloth. Still, it's good for at least one watch, has some poignant moments, and gothic lolita robots with guns. Who can ask for more? Everybody, but watch this anyway.

When the Chinese company BSC first announced their ‘third party’ 1/35 scale Unicorn bust kit I threw all my money at the screen. If you weren’t aware, I’m a big fan of the Unicorn design. Despite various ups and downs with third party kits I just had to have the it in my collection. To my surprise, I had very few issues with the kit. Granted, I was a bit daunted by the LEDs and have yet to attempt them, but other than that things went together well. One day, maybe, I still hope to give it the paint and detailing job it deserves.
Fast forward to BSC announcing this, their 1/35 scale Sinanju. Holy shit I threw money at the screen like Scrooge McDuck throws himself into a vault of gold coins. After what feels like a long wait the kit finally showed up and I couldn’t be happier.
Meddling backdoor pilots. One minute you’ve a fantastic hangar of great aircraft, next minute some pilot sneaks through the backdoor, hijacks one of them for a joyride. Sometimes, the pilot does a good job and makes great use of your work. Other times, he crashes and leaves a hot, thick, mess on your runway that takes quite a bit of time to clean up. The things that happen when somebody comes behind your back and does things without your consent…
What happens when you take Patlabor, switch the robots to planes, reverse the male-to-female ratio, and file off the serial number? Well, you'd probably still get something a bit better than 801 TTS Airbats, which, while having excellent aerial scenes, and some character potential, falls somewhat short of the runway. But hey, more Penguinopolis Mk II stuff in this video, so you can enjoy that, at least.

To sound like a broken record, how do you follow an episode that injected a shitton of adrenaline to the series and gives Gene an impetus to get his ass in gear?
Have him enter a big deal fighting tournament so Fred Luo can get out of marrying Space Ronda Rousey. Didn’t this happen already a few years back in… Wait, no. I… don’t think it’s really happened in any sortof space animu, at least anything like Outlaw Star.
After about two months I have completed my PG Exia build with mini hanger diorama and detached GN drive!
