El Cazador de la slow-moving plot


The stereotypical gas-mask-wearing mooks are a little bit ridiculous.

Episode 13 has a few minutes of important developments between characters, and a few seconds of nice scenery.

And in order to pad it out, the writers put in some meaningless gas-mask-clad mooks to lay down covering fire.

And when the long-term plot requires it, they get a radio signal to withdraw, because if they took any meaningful action they would slaughter the main characters.

I feel somewhat embarrassed when I watch stories with such contrived padding.
