Old enough to know better, two friends decide to tackle the sprawling space opera epic of Gundam Wing – a show they just can’t get out of their heads. High school is over and now they’re ready for a sophisticated, comprehensive and nuanced retrospective of all 49 episodes, free of the idiotic humor that formerly plagued all their discussions of the show. Maybe. Mission Accepted.
