Sounds good. Ask me whenever you start another rewatch project, I might hop on board if it's something I mean to watch/rewatch.

Phantom 2040 33

Spoiler:

- As a villain, Gorda doesn't really do it for me
- Eyyyy, mass drivers
- And economics, apparently FIAT doesn't exist in the future and they replaced the Gold-Standard?
- So the Phantom failed to stop Gorda stealing from Maximum last time and now unbeknownst to him assisted Maximum in preventing Gorda from stealing more
- Max Sr playing all sides
- Max Sr rumbled

34

Spoiler:

- Geography lessons would've been helpful, Kit
- I like how there's mugging gangs right outside schools
- Oho, Sparks will be taken home instead of to the lair with the tracker inside him
- And they took him right to Gorda, so they'll assume Sparks is one of Gorda's and that the Phantom was using him to get to Gorda
- Probably shoot the Phantom in the face, Gorda
- Convenient super laser
- Not super enough if Graft can destroy it
- Probably shouldn't have told them you put a tracker on Sparks
- Oh hey, Ghostwood kills pollution, rare roses kill Ghostwood, that's a decent cycle

35/Finale

I'm curious to see if they knew it was the finale or if they just left plot-threads hanging

Spoiler:

- Pew Pew Pew
- That Max Sr hug Laughing
- "Just because he's dead doesn't mean he can walk out on me" What a nightmare wife
- Shakespeare, so he had a different cat when he was younger?
- So it was all Rebecca twisting everyone around
- Max Sr would like the Phantom to kill him
- Ah, that bit at the end seems tacked on to wrap everything up knowing the series was going to end

I think the series definitely had something in the first season but for whatever reason the second season's cheaper animation and changes unwound a lot of that.

Phantom 2040 S2E13: The Furies

Spoiler:

Rebecca and Gorda take turns robbin'.

-Haha, nope. Guran is no more free of obligations than you are.
-Ghostwood. You call it kuzdu.
-Yeah, that was Max Sr's get-rich-quick scheme.
-Bunch of random jungle animals, even though animals are supposed to be mostly extinct.
-More crime against Australia.
-Biots don't count as credible adversaries now.
-Uncommon combat background music.
-Max Sr randomly creeping.
-Phantom just pulls Guran up with one hand, but he's a full-blown metahuman at this point.
-"Mom, Gorda stole your shit."
-Okay, so there are about nine other moons on the way to Earth.
-Damn, they spent about 20 cents animating this sequence.
-Of course they have an underwater craft. It came with the Supervillain Starter Kit.
-Well now, Max Sr playing both ends.
-And Gorda just keeps a spare roboroo laying around in storage.
-Sr's playing everybody.
-Sneaking off to play.
-Yeesh, Rebecca's really regressed from corporate schemer to common thief.
-Whoops, there goes Sr's fun.
-Carted off to revolving-door jail.


Phantom 2040 S2E14: Moments of Truth

Spoiler:

Everyone wants Rebecca's plants.

-Phantom looking to steal Rebecca's mail.
-I bet Sparks didn't know he would be taking a geography quiz tonight.
-"Equador" Hoo boy.
-Sorry Sparks, you fail.
-Someone else swiped your score, dude.
-Straight from street urchin to college.
-Now that Sparks is in the system, the Maximum data sniffers should pick him right up.
-Yep.
-Oh man, a gang of toughs. I bet they're in a fraternity.
-Let's him him some of this Spanish Fly.
-"Come on, back to the frat house!"
-Meeting with the representative of the Booster Club.
-Max Jr is uncharacteristically giddy.
-Yeah, Gorda, the woman in the painting behind you?
-No Baudelaire for this excursion.
-Yep, surprise cannon.
-Haha, Graft's cannon was better.
-Dang. Max should have stayed home with Baudelaire.
-Graft somehow got his regular body back. I'm not even surprised.
-Oh, there's Max Sr's ghostwood killa.


Phantom 2040 S2E15: The Whole Truth

I couldn't find an English-language version, so I'm just going to comment on the dub I did find.

Spoiler:

Phantom and Max Sr have a chat.

-Phantom flying around town, surveying his city.
-Bad day to be an Enforcer.
-Somebody hacked into Phantom's bike.
-That last biot just got shot in the back after surrendering.
-Phantom freeclimbing in spurts for no apparent reason.
-Damn, he just bare knuckle punched out a metal grate.
-Phantom did all that just to eavesdrop.
-Max Sr catches him, and totally does not give a shit.
-Red robot has to learn how to deliver bad news better than that.
-Welp, Rebecca found her wayward husband.
-Looks like Graft is the Tin Woodsman this week.
-And we're going to do some spelunking in the smooze Phantom.
-3.5" diskette in the year 2040.
-Here, have this robot heart. I wasn't using it anyway.
-Lololololol, they had to take Gorda to jail with a hoist.
-Rebecca's in regular jail, and Max Jr gets a padded room.
-Another win for the good guys. The End. Looks like this dub skipped over a piece.

I don't know what happened, but S2 definitely devolved into generic cartoon heroing/villainy.

Kinda feels like whatever corporate side wasn't impressed with whatever numbers they were doing so they told them to dumb it down or do it more like other cartoons of the era
