(Kinda scribbly? Yeah.) So, somebody I've been running into online keeps headcanon-dumping for a one-season cartoon called Motorcity, and I finally got curious enough about the thing to hunt it up. It's big and loud and colorful and over-the-top, but for the first three episodes I was still kind of "huh. I can see how it might be entertaining, but I'm not getting any emotional connection? At all?" And then I met this lady... And suddenly I'm actually becoming interested. I mean, "the extremist with understandable motivations but man you're taking things too far" has been done before of course, but it makes things MEAN more to have a problem that's not going to be easily mopped up at the end of the day - no magical tech fixes for the underlying issues - and having the knowledge that the stuff that drove her to this point was already going on in the background while our crazy point-and-click weather and slobbery robot-wardogs and copy-paste-weather were hamming it up earlier. Also, her fighting style is entertaining. :)
