THIS WEEK: Despite the end of the world and despite Sven’s repeated attempts to drown himself, we take a detour from our detour to get back on topic. In addition, all rocket turtles are automatically Gamera; Sven is very particular about his CGI machine designs; Van shuffles through piles of mythology notes and understands nothing; Dr. Teufel is big bad sad scientist dad gone mad; and, oh hey, is that the script!? (Translator’s note: Teufel means devil.)
