Episode 46: Closed Due to Glacier (The Ice Warriors)

November 22, 2020

This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension ask themselves “oven mitt or lego hand?” as something is stirring in the ice… in the latest of these seemingly never ending “base under siege” stories, it’s The Ice Warriors!

 

Over the course of our discussion, Reilly discusses the size of the Ice Warriors’ hips and the cold-blooded nature of reptiles, Anthony criticizes the animation style for episodes 3 and 4, Julie praises the costume design in the story, and Don questions the naming of the titular aliens. The entire team discusses the experience of having to work for a bad boss (like Clent) – we’ve all been there!
