  • Dizzy Florez appears to be a superhuman bug killing machine! She loves to jump into the middle of an ambush and take them out with any kind of weapon. She seems invincible, right? Even superhuman bug killing machines have their weakness though...moreless

    I love this series primarily because of their character development episodes; they're superb! The fact that we discover that the all-powerful Dizzy Florez is claustraphobic had be floored - I never would have guessed! It was a great touch too, simply because the girl has to have a weakness - otherwise it's no fun to cheer for her. But she's too bad-ass to actually admit it, for fear of not only being discluded from the team, but because it would hold them down as well.

    Also, we managed to discover just exactly how much Carl Jenkins can do - he can suppress her fear for a limitted amount of time. Useful for this mission, but it also leaves us wondering what else he can do with his Psychic abilities. Time will only tell.

    This episode recieves an 8.4 from me, simply because it was a great way to end the series. Very rarely do I ever hand out 9's or 10's, but I'm certain this series will deliver.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Razak: Listen up, apes! SCICOM believes the base of enemy operation is somewhere beneath the surface of Pluto. Orders are to locate Bug City and wipe it off the map.
      Rico: Lieutenant, any chance we could grab a little siesta or something first?
      Razak: Sorry Private, your beauty sleep is going to have to wait. Get your gear! We drop in ten!

    • (Narrating)

      Higgins: From that moment on, it was a completely different war. The bugs weren't native to Pluto. They were travelling from somewhere, deep in space. Which meant, they weren't the mindless drones we thought they were. Most likely they weren't contained to just this planet. We were no longer dealing with an infestation. This was an invasion.

    • Flores: So, whats it like inside my head?

      Jenkins: Scary.

    • Brutto: High alert, Greenies. Cut the chit-chat.

      Carl: Must be jealous, 'cause he can't walk and talk at the same time.
