Space Brothers episode 85
Ha! I laughed pretty hard during this episode. Not because it was funny, not because it was all that interesting and certainly not because it was the best episode I’ve seen in a while. I laughed because certain expectations of mine were met.
Remember how Kenji practically stabbed Mutta in the back by shutting down most (if not all) of his suggestions? Remember how cold he acted towards him by pretending he wasn’t even there? Then, do you also remember how Mutta whipped him good when he came up with countless ideas to save time and still get everything done on time? It was so funny to see Kenji try to come up with ideas of his own, probably hoping to catch the eye of some of the people at NASA. That guy is definitely a crawler and certainly not leadership material. He almost immediately changed his ways when he saw his opportunity to go to the moon go out the window.
I must honestly say that I’m truly surprised by Mutta’s capabilities. I knew he was quite the thinker and capable of working under pressure, but it’s no secret that he exceeded pretty much all of my expectations. I don’t usually root for the main characters because they’re the best, but I’m making an exception in his case.
Hell, it didn’t even surprise me when his name came up at the top dogs’ meeting. They said, and I quote; “Mutta was the only one that actually seemed to be on the moon during the NEEMO training”. Now that’s impressive! Truth being told, I, too, think that Mutta would do a lot better up there than his little brother. I have no idea why though.
