The Weekly Stuff Podcast #360 – Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Review
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
Today’s episode is another Weekly Suit Gundam extravaganza, this time on the controversial Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, but before that, we also discuss this week’s abhorrent Presidentially-ordered insurrection at the US capital, and – in a lighter topic – Jonathan becoming infatuated with Genshin Impact, Sean’s 2020 Game of the Year. Then it’s on to Gundam SEED Destiny, a show that tries to be two different, contradictory shows at once: a challenging sequel questioning the assumptions and characters from the original, a la Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, and a straight-up sequel to SEED – Gundam SEED: Here We Go Again – and in the shuffle, somehow makes us hate the entire returning cast even while it buries and repeatedly does dirty its interesting new characters. The result is one of the most inept sequel stories ever told – but undeniably one of the most compelling to talk about.
