Episode 7 was more interesting than most episodes. The episode starts with a typical hospital scene. The scene was full of old people. They were missing the earth and wanted to land. The scene cuts to the crew doing their daily procedures while Lt. Reed sipped tea angrily pic related. Kai was trollish toward Amuro which, was funny. The old people became uppity about being on a ship so, they kidnapped the kids and Fraw Bow. It was the lamest kidnapping since they had no weapons and, they gave up easily when confronted with guns. The battle then began with Amuro sleeping in his Gundam. Amuro was a bit sloppy but, Char didn't know the Earth Federation's technology. Amuro ended up doing pretty well despite his start. The old people also decided to sit on the ship in protest of being on the ship. Episode 8 was more of a continuation of episode 7. If episode 7 did not exist, I would likely call this filler. The crew decided to evacuate while fighting Zeon. Pretty uncomfy if you ask me. Kai was great in this episode. Kai is immature and, that was a good contrast from how most of the crew acts. There was also a new Gundam in this episode. The fight was pretty easy in this episode because Amuro had help. Rewatching this episode, I just realized Char did not like Garma. That might have been pretty obvious to most watchers but, I somehow did not catch it.
