Tread Perilously
Tread Titan Perilously: Episode 8

At long last, the end has come. Well, for Erik and Justin at least. While Attack on Titan may go on forever, they will never know how it continued beyond episode twenty-five. One of the characters emerges as the true hero of the series and Dr. Hengle continues to be awesome. Erik's prediction about the Jogger Titan proves to be correct and while he makes a guess about the Colossal Titan, he will never know the truth. Justin wishes the material across the season had been condensed into the twelve episodes, but both find they are happy to have known about Titans and more happy to see the end of them.

The Satellite Show returns with turkey leftovers such as the Gods of Egypt trailer, the iffy feelings people now have for Sixteen Candles, Justin questioning Dawn about Attack on Titan and memories of a demented coloring book. Justin stops himself from going too far while Elsha visits to egg him on. It is also agreed that Sarah will choose the form of the Destructor. This month's Yakmala film is The Man Who Saved the World, AKA: Turkish Star Wars.

Tread Titan Perilously: Episode 7

 The penultimate episode of Treat Titan Perilously focuses on losers and losing. In the grimdark world where Jogger Titans roam free, Erik and Justin discuss topics as varied as The Prisoner, Watchmen, The Wire and The Walking Dead. The Scouts fail at their mission and reaching the basement has never seemed farther away. Eren reveals that he is a poor MMA fighter, Mikasa returns to defend Eren and Titan Hunter Lestat reveals he can use the screw attack.

Tread Titan Perilously: Episode 6

Erik's prediction about the basement is woefully wrong as the scouts encounter the Jogger titan. While Eren dithers about taking action, Armin comes more into his own. The Jogger also owns a number of scouts. Erik and Justin appreciate several things about episode 17-19 and wonder if, perhaps, anime fans hold onto just a few things in the midst of otherwise dreadful series. Lestat, Dr. Hengle and Rainer continue to be great as the program (re)introduces horse whisperer Christa.

With the end in sight, though, Erik doubts we'll ever reach the basement.

Tread Titan Perilously: Episode 5

At long last, the worm turns! After Eren gets a well deserved beating, Attack on Titan reboots with an emphasis on Titan Hunter Lestat and Dr. Hengle. Erik and Justin are appreciative as the characters they enjoyed in one scene seven episodes back come to the forefront. Mikasa, Armin and the rest of the cadets take a back seat ... only to return to two episodes later. But with the show seemingly fully animated, the character models changed and a mid-season credit sequence change is it possible Erik and Justin will finally like the show? The Craft, Worf and The Muppets also get discussed.
