I watched "New Alliances" today. Yes, it wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. The introductions of Kaynar (Jackalman) and Addicus (Monkian) are completely thought out, we got to see the ThunderKittens' spaceboards for the first time, and we FINALLY see Panthro's new cybernetic arms (though their "stretch" ability can easily be ignored). Of course, he'll still use his nunchuks. The ThunderTank 2.0, though extremely campy, is an improvment over the original in that it can now carry even more people.
