The previous episode, “Manhunt,” was entertaining because the story stayed focused on the Spectrum characters. That doesn’t happen here. After opening with an agonizing three and a half minutes of surgery, this one’s aaaaallllll about the guest puppets.
Captain Magenta at least figures out that the Mysterons’ target is a general named Tiempo who’s scheduled for surgery in the morning. Spectrum relocates him and his doctor to Cloudbase after the show’s half-finished, and stick Magenta on guard duty as thanks. But it’s even a guest character who figures out that Dr. Magnus is a Mysteron. Couldn’t they have let one of the regulars do that?
