Space Brothers episode 48

I cannot believe that they’re raping the story like this. The realism was once one of the show’s strongest pros. I think that’s about to change. They’re doing things they shouldn’t be doing, plus they’re getting very sloppy with little details.

[HorribleSubs] Space Brothers - 48 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2013.03.10_23.23.33]The only good thing about this episode is that everyone has started their training once more. Sure, their instructor is a military nut-job that wants everyone without a military background to fail, but that’s not even the biggest problem here. It’s just so incredibly inaccurate. Like, that guy uses his vehicle as a tool to see if someone is suitable to become an astronaut or not by burning rubber on the freeway. The guy was driving at 62 miles per hour (or 100 kilometres per hour) and one of the passengers looked as though he had seen a ghost. Really? At that speed? I drive faster than that every day.

I don’t want some Indian woman (isn’t having an Indian psychic kind of racist?) acting like Mutta is about to die. She didn’t want to tell him about his future, even though she clearly claims to know, because something bad is going to happen to him.

I’ll keep watching for now, but I don’t like the looks of it. I don’t see how things could possibly get any worse. What’s going to happen next? Is Mutta going to die at the hands of an alien? Is there an alien about to burst from his chest? I wouldn’t be surprised anymore if that was actually the case. What a shame, I actually liked Space Brothers for its realism.
