Episode Summary

Subterranean Sonic
Sonic and Tails' latest run-in with Scratch and Grounder takes them through a mine. It turns out that the mine is the underground home of a mole and his many diamonds. The two heroes learn the hard way that the mole is very protective of these diamonds and paranoid that others want to steal them. Things only get worse, though, with Scratch and Grounder still in the area and up to no good. Can Sonic and Tails convince the mole they are not his enemies and to free them?moreless

    Sonic and Tails are in the Marble Zone, where numerous geysers are located. For those who already know the video games, Marble Zone is also the name of the second zone in the first Sonic the Hedgehog game. But the similarities between both versions are very limited. Personally, I like the video game portrayal better because of the Ancient Greece look and the dangerous lava-filled volcanoes.

    The Marble Zone is a dangerous and perilous place to venture, but Scratch and Grounder dare to go there in order to catch our main protagonists. The chase then goes under the surface. Sonic and Tails discover a cave filled with gold and diamonds, guarded by a mole named Spelunk. The latter believes that Sonic and Tails are there to steal his treasure and he starts to chase them so they won't escape.

    So we get another adversary here. He's even tougher and more intelligent than Scratch and Grounder (not difficult, will you say) and he owns the home-field advantage.

    Honestly, I've not been impressed by this episode. Some parts of the story don't make any sense, such as the turtle family, brought in from nowhere, crossing the railroad. Some Sonic jokes work well, but some are just ridiculous and, as a children show, totally impossible to understand for the targeted audience.

    And, once again, Sonic gets all the job. I want to get more from Tails. Otherwise, he's only a decoration whose role is mainly to say: "What are we gonna do, Sonic?"

    As for the main melodramatic twist in the story, I wasn't impressed either and, frankly, it was too easy for a plot device.

    A good episode? "I'm waiiiting..." for it.moreless
