What’s up, dudes? I’ve got AA and CM Chuck from Just Another Friday Night here to talk the remarkably well written Robotech! For a kids show, it tackled some pretty adult themes! There’s a love triangle, civilian casualties, and a successful villain mission? What?! It’s true!


It’s Christmas time, and Khyron is out for protoculture! This means he plans to lead a raiding party to take some by force. Meanwhile, Rick Hunter’s personal life is thrown into further disarray when his ex Minmei shows up unexpectedly due to her seasonal loneliness. And when his potential (and spoiler alert: eventual) love interest Lisa Hayes catches them in flagrante delicto, things get even more dicey!

Khyron subsequently attacks, and while veritech pilots are scrambled, Lisa neglects to contact Rick due to her spurned heart. Overhearing the conflict on the news, Rick rushes to the city’s aid. Unfortunately Khyron is sneakily strategic, and plants bombs around the city. It’s get the bad guy or save the city time, so there’s only one thing to do!

There are multiple casualties and injured, but not even a Zentraedi attack can break the Christmas spirit! The faithful gather at a church to sing “Silent Night,” and Rick and Minmei share a meal and a kiss!

This Christmas episode is heart-pounding and gut-wrenching! It’s also a tribute to the human spirit and the spirit of Christmas! So grab your protoculture, hop into your veritech’s cockpit, and fly into this Robotech episode!!
