It's 24 hours later and no one has started a thread for last night's show. Maybe you all are as over it as I am.
But, in case anyone wants to post about the 8-31 happenings...here it is.
They (Hygenia) found the pencil. yay.
They were directed toward evil by the puppetmaster, Evil Stan. (As I predicted last week.)
Evil Stan was created by Dr. Dark with DNA from the pencil and the electical surge the heros had to combat last week.
Upon locating the pencil in a large shipping crate they were all miraculously locked in said crate by Dr. Dark.
There were fetch it tools in the form of a pipe that could be pieced together in the crate and tools to pry open the crate placed about 3-4 feet in front of an arm size perfectly round hole sawn into the wooden crate's front edge.
At this point I started to fast forward and wished they would also. Finally after the pipe broke apart, the men (mostly Hyper Strike) found a net bag type thing and filled it with a few pieces of pipe (I think as I was still on F1 mode) then tied a belt and Hyper Strike's long scarf to it and pushing it through the hole managed to snag a pry bar and bring it up to reaching distance. With the bar they took out nails holding the door edges and then all four gave the door section a mighty kick and it fell down. I can't remember how many minutes remained on the hour clock, but it wasn't many. Hygenia sweat a lot, but reminded herself to overcome this non-hygenic situation.
Oh, before I forget, and my memory is fading fast... and before I fast forward through their diary entries; I remembered that their first task, after being berated by Stan for blindly following stupid orders, which were given to them in a park by Evil Stan, was to race to a fourth grade classroom at an elementary school where the students were to help them decipher a code about where the next mission was to take place. Short edit - the kids were cute and smart and Hyper Strike bonded best with them (though he did give up a portion of his secret identity. :nono )
Usual blah blah in the diary entries. Hygenia is slow...Parthenon was bossy and didn't bond with the kids...The Defuser - well he still has problems...and Hyper Strike took too much control in the locked crate.
Up to the Roof Top (without the clatter of hooves); three up on the red blocks - Hygenia, Parthenon and Hyper Strike. Another F1 fast forward through the blather and Parthenon strips off and burns his Super Hero outfit. He sashays down the street outside the secret lair stating he will always be a super hero. The remaining three are, of course, subdued and vow to continue the good fight.
The finale (2 hours) is upon us and as usual I'll record it and view the next day...hopefully without my finger on the remote in F1 or F2 mode.
