Episode 200: Why Were You Like This
The time has come to wrap up my thoughts on Episode 200. Not a task I’m looking forward to, in part because it’s the signal that I’m really done, and in part because I’m still pretty upset at how much complaining I’m about to do.
You have disappointed me greatly, Episode 200.
This isn’t how I wanted the finale to go. It failed me on pretty much every possible level, from storytelling and pacing to character interaction and emotional resonance. I can’t tell you how much I don’t want to conclude this liveblog project with a post yelling at an episode. BUT HERE WE ARE. I’ve not pulled my punches on any of the previous 199 episodes, and I’m not going to start now.
Episode 200, then. How it was a shitty series finale, and every last way I’m bitterly disappointed.
THE FACT THAT THIS CAP IS AS TOUCHING AS THE SENSHI REUNION GETS GIVES YOU SOME IDEA OF WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST
