Oddly a lot of people are grumbling about today's episode over at the TC boards (especially as to why Cheetara and Panthro left them in the forest). Me, I loved it... mostly because, again, I can totally relate to the kittens. Especially after reading Jules Verne books, or Robinson Crusoe, I often wondered, if I could kill an animal just to be able to eat? 'Cause I am the sort of guy who picks up spiders and carefully takes them outside my flat.
And man, the show creators can come up with some really cool animal designs. The bird-deer family were simply adorable.
I honestly thought it was a lesson that needed to be learned. ?It was harsh, I know. But if the kittens didn't learn it in Thundera, they should probably learn it then and there in the wild that it's a harsh world.?
Which...funny thing...seems like they should have already learned that lesson.
Do kids watch this show? ?Did it teach them that sometimes you have to steal? ?And that hunting is wrong?
Apparently! They certainly didn't learn the lesson that Cheetara and Panthro set out to teach.
Which I honestly don't think was a bad lesson. ?I get the feeling they went with the "hunting's wrong" aesop so that those stupid activist groups...not to name names...(coughpetacough)...wouldn't do their usual dickery and come down on someone who would even remotely dare to say that hunting is sometimes necessary in the big bad world if you want to survive.
I mean, seriously! ?It's not that they have anything wrong with the lesson "do what you must to survive." Obviously stealing's just fine. Hunting on the other hand. ??
"I think they want us to fight to the death." is my new favorite line from this show.
Yeah, that was a nice moment.
Oh, there's only one spot open right now, so we're gonna have...tryouts.??Make it fast.?
I want to know how Panthro got those scars.
