Episode 80: Masters of Puppets

The hosts try to break free from their strings by dismantling the absurd plot machinations and undercooked characters of the clownishly rushed horror action show Karakuri Circus. After that they go back to the very beginning of the Gundam franchise and discuss how Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin expertly chronicles the rise of one of the most iconic characters from that franchise: Char Aznable.
