Journey to Limbo really works as part two to the introduction to the SilverHawks series, and like the pilot, is a solid episode on most fronts. It's amusing how the SilverHawks meet Commander Stargazer and he’s kind of a jerk to them. And although the bad guys really ought to have their act far more together than they obviously do, it was fairly necessary for the heroes to square off against as many of them as possible right away. We got to see a lot of small things in this episode that made it very fun. The rock off between Bluegrass and Melodia, Buzz-saw being apparently blown to bits, Tally-Hawk kicking serious butt, and stuffy old Stargazer reminisce about Chicago and generally act like a hard ass street cop.
A couple small things that I wondered throughout this episode. Why exactly does Stargazer act like he’s in the middle of a bad film noir? And what’s up with the disheveled 1940s office, and clothing? Why is the exhaust of the Mirage rainbow colored? Why do the SilverHawks perform complex arial formations in space, where there is no atmosphere? Is it just for show? Cause it does look good, I’m just wondering if they really thought that one through…
Regardless of all those random musings this is a good episode, that plays well to introduce a lot of characters and give most everyone a quick moment or two to shine. The pacing will definitely be better served though when there isn’t so much plot or character introduction to get through. I look forward to future episodes.
