Once more, the Gamilons get their asses handed to them by the Star Force. They can’t eke out even a minor victory against a single Earth ship, which makes them -- with their vast resources – a kind of lame villain. The worst aspects of Star Blazers as a series involve the repetitive plot of Gamilons devising a secret weapon (ultra-menace missiles, reflex guns, Desslok mines, and so on…) and still failing to stop a single Earth ship. They really do transmit as rather pathetic. They have a vast Empire and they can muster nothing in terms of credible defense/offense.
There are two more Star Blazers TV seasons to watch, but I'll return to them another day. Next week, on Sunday, I begin blogging Firefly (2002).
