Taza World, Season 5 - Episode 4 "Girls and Robots" (Lars)
Review brought to you by Daily Stalker Magazine.
Note: These episode summaries focus primarily on the events involving the character Lars, and not so much of Taza, Jaie, or Fish.
Main Cast: Taza, Lars, Jaie, Fish
Supporting Cast: Jon, Scott
Guest Stars: Suitemates 1.0, Pyrotechnician Ben, Comic Book Guy, Jewel, Amy, bunch of random girls
This episode began with Lars being rather depressed over the situation with her. After viewing something on his computer, which we the viewers were not able to see, he got even more depressed, to the point that he stopped talking to anyone for a while.
Lars, Jaie, and Taza rode around town for a while in search of food, Lars having to communicate via gestures much like Silent Bob as he still wasn't talking.
Upon returning to the dorm, Jaie and Taza set up their computers in the lounge and began playing Counterstrike and Battlefield 1942 while Lars went back to the room.
While there, Lars was messaged by Jewel, and old friend from high school. She eventually talked him out of his funk.
The next day, Taza began his plans to build a robot that would wander around the room. Lars, of course, didn't believe there was any chance of this happening, but Taza is a computer expert and can be very determined. Taza even found out about an organization on campus that were trying to build a Battlebot and decided to try and join. Whether or not Taza will eventually build the Tazabot is uncertain at this time.
That night, Lars and Taza got a knock at their door, and found all their suitemates from the previous year, stars of the spin-off show Gurus, standing their wanting to squat in the room for a while since their apartments had lost power.
Eventually, Leary and Ray-Ray proved to be Halo champions, beating even Taza at the game. Suprisingly, Suitemates 1.0 didn't try to reclaim the lamp stolen from them during episode 1 of this season.
Taza and Jaie went to the anime cult's meeting that week, but Lars opted again to stay home.
The next day Lars ended up having a long conversation with Comic Book Guy, then later the entire main cast met for a late lunch (5pm) at the dining hall, including Fish who we don't see interacting with the rest of the cast as much lately.
That night, Fish and Lars met up with Jewel and a bunch of girls from her all-girls college. Ben was also their briefly, but had to leave. They spent a while riding around town, invading Crispy Creme, and hiding from cops, then eventually returned Fish and Lars to their dorm.
Fish went on to his room, but Lars decided to track down Taza and Jaie at a protest at the library.
Lars ended up being caught in the protest and with the march on the chancellors house at 1am as well. It was here that he met Amy who by the end of the night he had exchanged email addresses with.
When Lars and Taza returned to the dorm, they ended up having a brief conversations with two of their new suitemates who had been at the protest.
Well, it was good to see the original suitemates again, and it seems they will finally start developing this season's suitemates as well. The problem of her seems to be starting to fade, and this episode provided a good launching ground for any number of story arcs. It was also nice to see Jewel again.
Jewel is a viable reoccuring character this season, so we can probably expect to see more of her this year. The introduction of Amy was well done as well, and I'm curious to see if she'll play any kind of major role this season.
Lina guest stars and there is a possibility Lars will finally get his Vash the Stampede jacket.
Apparently there was a mistake in the last episode review, and the season premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on September 24 will not be two hours long. Therefore, viewers will get to watch both it on the UPN at 8pm Eastern, and the season premiere of Smallville on the WB at 9pm Easter. Enjoy.
