Another joint release from /m/subs and TSHS. This is the first episode where Helmuth makes an appearance in the TV series. While they actually do a halfway decent job of re-creating the character on a weekly TV budget, in my opinion it would have worked a lot better if they had kept that slowed-down vocal effect from the movie.
The plot of the episode involves Bemuga, the most dangerous life-form in the universe™. Why is Bemuga so dangerous? Because it lures its victims in with a psychic attack that causes them to see their dead relatives appearing in a flashback from a failed pilot for World Masterpiece Theater.
Haynes and Lacy discuss the Kim/Chris matchmaking situation, which is far creepier if you know their backstory from the books. To quote starseeker from the /m/subs crew on this scene: “Dear god, these two are as into shipping as a pair of teenage girls.”
