Yeah, even the kickass fighting sequence between the Tallgeese and the two
new OZ suits got recycled almost right away, in last night's episode. They
must be taking a cue from Bandai's "In Recycling We Trust" philosophy.

Because they are not a threat in captivity, without their Gundams. Or maybe
Lady Une was in such a nice mood...

Well... you will see soon who's even more ruthless.

My beef would be the rather fragmented/episodic nature of the storytelling -
the story arc is not as consistent as U.C. Gundam shows. They would have an
episode focus on a few characters, then the next episode goes to the next
couple of characters. All the while you don't know what the other unseen
characters are up to, as if that didn't matter.
