        Yup. Some of the older shows had this problem, which is why I find
*certain* Gundam shows so refreshing -- it's about real life people making
real life decisions, about gray areas which other shows just pigeonholes
into black and white.. But then again, you all will already know this, right?

        I especially empathize with the way Al was forced to grow up in a
matter of days... and Chris' ignorance of Bernie's fate was especially touching.

        LOL! I liked that scene -- honestly, when I was in the basc

        That scene was just so funny..
