WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #17

"The Terrifying Gift from Space"
A deep space satellite falls from orbit near a small mountain village being developed into a resort. Winspector is sent to recover the data from the satellite and assess the danger to the surrounding area. What they discover is something truly terrifying. Trapped in a quarantine zone and with no one to help them... will Winspector manage to survive? Or will they too be claimed by the terrifying gift from space?

Today's antagonist: Play Doh.
You're either going to love this episode or you're going to hate it. I love it. The science in it is really quite smart. The writing is slick, the set-up is great considering they're using toy slime and Play-Doh as a prop, and the action is intense. Once it starts, it really does not stop. If you ever wanted Winspector to have a zombie episode for some reason, this might make you happy. The musing by Commander Masaki and and ending narration is really nice, one of the best in the series.

"We ain't take too kindly to cyber cops 'round these parts!"
 Cultural note for your perusal: the scene at the end where Ryoma is still standing after taking a beating... look up the "Standing Death of Benkei". This is referential to a legend that persists in Japanese culture of a defender who was so tough that he refused to fall down even in death.
