    After the somewhat somber and darker pilot episode, this second episode takes a sharp turn into silliness and physical comedy, where the series will remain though its short run.

    We are introduced to Bond, Jimmy Bond, who resembles nothing so much as the love child of Mike Nelson (of MST3k fame) and Brendan Fraser. His introduction is necessary to add a measure of "eye candy" and "down-to-earthedness" that is sorely missing amongst our three lovable nerdly heroes. A positive addition. He manages to turn the blind football team scenes (which on paper seem stupid) into comedy gold.

    The Yves character returns but somehow I don't really care. Her supposed sex appeal is way overplayed and I don't understand her motivation in becoming so consistently involved with the Gunmen. Surely, they could have found a more dynamic and interesting actress to play Yves. Ah well.

    The plot is dumb but there is so much to laugh at here that I was entertained.
