Me and this tape...
For this episode the show has become a bit more dark and dynamic, more like a movie then a kids TV show... and does it work? Does the show look cooler and more sleek?
Depends, if you think a man in purple and yellow looks less or more goofy in a more nitty gritty world!
The show starts off in a community centre as people are about to listen to kids singing! Oh crap! Oh no wait! Before were subjected to too much singing and dancing we see into the basement of the community centre where the villain Shadow of Doubt has make his hide out... wow nothing says evil headquarters like a rec centre basement!
We then see that the Shadow of Doubt has a sidekick named Ludicrous and... um... a big bulging nut sack.
Look at that thing! What the ball sack!
A villain in tight blue spandex? Showing off his ball-bulge! What the frick! Whats the doubt hes suppose to cast? Is he suppose to be make kids doubt there sexuality?!
Villain in blue tights... true evil.
We then meet up in the Biblebase as Bibleman's secret identity of Miles Peterson works along side his sidekick Coats.
Wait! What? Bibleman has a sidekick and his name is Coats?! Coats? What kind of name is Coats? That's frickin' stupid! Why would you name your kid Coats? (and if Coats is his hero name then that's just worse!)
So how does a man in army attire relate to the whole bible theme of this show? Is he in Gods army? Does God have a fully decked out military? Does heaven have weapons of mass destruction?
So as our Biblical Duo works in their biblebase they get a message from there computer UNICE (Universal Networking Intelligence Computing Entity) and go to check on it...
They receive a video message from a pastor (Wow the church really wastes money! Why'd he need to use a video message device? He could have just used the phone!) who tells them some of his church congregation has been acting strange and hes mostly concerned with a little girl who's parents have been struggling with arguing.
Sad girl? Bibleman to the rescue!
(also the pastor mentions in his video message that they've been finding odd little black boxes around everywhere... and if it has nothing to do with this episodes villain that would be a real shock!)
And is arguing one of the Bibleman villains too? or does Bibleman not concern himself with adults arguing? Bibleman does tend to favour helping small kids... young preteen girls to be exact...
Bibleman talks to the girl (well actually he just quotes the bible at her) and the girl seems to want more depth of discussion. But thinking the girl might need counselling with her parents is beyond the notice of Bibleman as he continues to quote the bible at her. But the girl doubts things will just get better with just talking and prayer. (Huh, what's she think she can do? Actually actively do something? Dumb little girl! Your life is predetermined and you can't do things for yourself! Just lie back and think of the bible!)
The girl then tells Bibleman that her doubtful feelings hit fruition when she found and opened a little black box in the basement. Bibleman looks at the box and decides to investigate the basement. But before he can get to the basement he is approached by the pastor and asked if there's any way he can help the little girl, Bibleman tells him to pray for her... cause calling a counsellor is just a dumb idea! Quote the bible at her and think about her to yourself... that's how things get done!... Heck that's how I wrote this review!
So Bibleman goes into the basement and looks around, he then finds a little black box and opens it... seriously? The girl said her doubt happened after she opened the box! How does he not realise the box will make him doubt things? What is he an idiot? Did he open up some box earlier that made him dumb as a door nail? Geepers!
So Bibleman is then effected with the boxes doubt power?/smoke?/electricity?/specialeffect?/thingamabob? and then the villain reappears! and we can see his bulge again...
Why God why?! I know Bibleman is about confronting evil, but the evil of his bulge is too much! This is a kids show is it not? Why must kids be subjected to the crotch! Why God why!?
So the two men then break into battle (just hope the villains tights don't break) and fight each other with their lightsabers.
Yeah I'm gonna censer the crotch right now its kind of annoying!
With all the changes from the earlier episode its good they kept these sword battles...
As they fight when ever the Shadow of Doubt says "Doubt" Bibleman feels doubt and is weakened! Eventually when Bibleman is very weak (from hearing the word doubt a lot) the Shadow of Doubt makes his escape leaving Bibleman to wonder why he feels the way he does and whats going on...
Yeah he still doesn't realise the little black box filled him with doubt... How is such a simple thing beyond his grasp? How is he a champion on the side of good and this clueless? Does he not exercise his brain?!
And better yet, why did the Shadow of Doubt not finish him off when he had the chance!?!
So Bibleman heads over to his secret base and trys to analyze what happened to him.
YOU DORK! YOU FELT DOUBT! HOW IS IT THAT HARD TO FIGURE OUT?! DOUBT!!
Will Bibleman ever figure out the Shadow of Doubt made him feel doubt? Will Bibleman ever clue in? Find out tomorrow! Same Berserk Time! Same Berserk Blog!
