In the original episode, G2 is peeved because he knows that the team needs more weapons. It's about 70 episodes in, and their Bird Missiles aren't doing so well.
Then they get their tail-feathers handed to them.
G2's brain injury doesn't really play up until near the end of the show.
(G3's protective nacelle usually pops off once she hits the ground, too fast to really see.)
Author's Response: It's good to know that Jason wasn't dying of Joe's puppy-related shrapnel injury at the time. I still say he was just grumpy from sitting up too late watching motor sport on TV. Thanks for reviewing :)

The many sins of BOTP are foreshadowed in 1950s 'science fiction' television series. It's nothing new. Regrettably.
Such is skiffy... as opposed to Science Fiction. Good science fiction (and skiffy) is actually about people against the backdrop of the whizzbang and the "oooooooh, er!" In that sense, BotP succeeds, which is probably why it still has so many fans even after all this time. Thanks for taking the time to review the review.

Aaaaaggghhhhh!!! They took out the fight scene in the J! :-P
Seriously, you've done very good work. And I'm glad you're willing to suffer thru Zark for us. Thank you very much. Here's a nice big piece of chocolate. :-)
If you wan't, I'll send you a descriptionof the fight, GoS style. It's hilarious!
Author's Response: Well, that explains why there's so much Zark in this ep. Ah, virtual chocolate. The best kind (no calories!) ;)

This was great (again). I actually got myself a little prepared for your review by watching Gatchaman #67 before reading, so I'd know a little bit of what you're talking about.
I've never seen the BotP version of this one, but reading your review has two advantages: one, I now know how the BotP version of this goes, and two, you handle Zark for me (insert evil, Z-dude like laughter here).
Thank you, your sarcasm brightens my day :)
Author's Response: Thanks, petra, for taking the time to review this review (er, so to speak.) I think sarcasm is pretty much the only way to handle Zark without going completely barking mad.
