Space Brothers episode 46

The episode quality is once again dropping now that all the drama is over. We must all face the fact that space Brothers didn’t get recognized for its comedy. It’s always been a bonus that makes you laugh sometimes, nothing more.

It’s been forty-six weeks since the show started, yet we’ve ever only focussed on the few characters that Mutta’s been involved with. Now we suddenly dive into the lives of other characters that we don’t actually know. We learned about their goals, their family and a bit of their way of living. What’s up with that? I mean, some of those characters have never even been in the spotlight, not even once. That’s why it was so strange to watch. I guess I’m really the type of guy that doesn’t like change.

I ask myself that question after Mutta got tricked into wearing his JAXA suit. I started thinking about all the comedy and about the (failed) attempts to make us, the viewers, laugh. I honestly believe there’s too much of that. The show does so much better with the drama element, the high ratings more than proved that statement when Hibito was in trouble. They shot through the roof, but are now dropping again. Like I said; the drama is gone and so are those high ratings. Less comedy and more drama, that’s the way to go with this, Japan.
