Cartoon Network (ended 2007)
|It's only slightly more rediculous than the "Toys in the Attic" episode of Cowboy Bebop.|
|Ok I just saw this episode like 3 mins ago....and I'm real upset with it....Like wtf?....I think it has nothing to do with the series and I have no idea why they made it....I don't like this episode at all...mostly because the show is pretty much reality based and that was really far fetched....|
It's called "Filler" In my mind, episodes like this are created because of a) deadlines, b) slight breakdown in storyline c) fans like 26 episodes (2 seasons).
Don't think too much about this episode.
I agree the zombie fights rock...and I think the zombie episode and the baseball episode was inserted to lighten the storyline before the big finale. A lot of series do it...they are going hot and heavy and then to drag it out longer they throw in a dream sequence or something like that. Maddening at times but a necessary evil to make us all whine for more.
Um, they never died. Jet is still clearly breathing despite being poisoned (when they check his neck). Plus, they're all on make-shift beds before the zero-G kicks in. If they were dead, then Spike and Ed would have covered their faces. They all just suffered poison stings that knocked them out (Spike's even has a dazed grin at the end). I suppose they could have been eaten by the blob if it was trying to stun them first.
