Editorial Reviews

As the second season of this stylish, static mecha series continues, Negotiator Roger Smith experiences nightmares/flashbacks: collages of robot attacks, burning cities, universal product codes, and what appear to be human clones. How these fragmented recollections link Roger's role as "Dominus" of the title mecha Megadeus, the schemes of the wealthy Rosewater family, and the plague that destroyed the memories of everyone in Paradigm City will undoubtedly be revealed as the show progresses. Meanwhile, much of the focus shifts to android Girl Friday Dorothy, who rescues Roger from kidnappers and discovers Angel's ties to what appears to be a German bund left over from a World War II-era B movie. The new season of The Big O continues the disconnect between the elegant Deco designs of the main characters, and the broad, cartoony villains, including the gang who takes Roger hostage. (Rated 13 and older: violence, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Megadeuse July 22, 2005
While the first disc in the second season of the Big O was largely used to acclimate us once again to the characters and plot twists common to the Big O, in this second disc things finally start moving towards a resolution... at the end.

Some of the most stylish and enjoyable episodes of the first Big O series concerned Roger's wannabe nemesis Beck, and in the first episode in the series he makes a silly, over-the-top, ridiculous (and highly entertaining) return. While Beck in the past has resorted to kidnappings of various sorts (he kidnapped Dorothy in the first episode of the Big O remember?), this time he kidnaps Roger! And with the negotiator kidnapped, it's up to Dorothy to begin negotiations. This whole episode is actually a parody of Mighty Morphin', flashy, overblown mecha that have become popular, and features a great battle at the end with the Big O that you really need to see for yourself (let's just say that old school giant robots are a BIT more powerful than the transforming types in the opinion of this show's creators). This episode is also interesting for the increased religious imagery (Roger is imprisoned on a cross!), and some strong character building dialog between Dorothy and Roger (when Beck accuses Roger of having Dorothy for a lover and Roger denies it, only to have Dorothy respond to Roger's denial with offense I almost couldn't believe it!). A pretty great episode all told.

The second episode on the disc involves a robot assassin who is on a rampage of destruction, and poor Dustin who gets stuck with a robot partner sent from Paradigm. The highlights of this episode include Dorothy's close brush with death when she is targeted by the assassin, and a giant robot that chases her and Norman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big-O Easter Egg May 20, 2012
In Act 20 "Stripes" Be on the lookout when Roger is walking towards his car in Paradigm H.Q. on the right you will see "Batman The Animated Series" Batmobile parked in a spot. With the very comical Act 18 "The Greatest Villain". The series after Act 19 takes a more serious, darker path that many mysteries from the early Acts will be showing their true colors in Act 20 "Stripes". The foreigners decide to take action by trying to steal the hidden memories what is hidden from Paradigm City. Roger Smith must confront the foreigners in order to save Paradigm City. With enough problems as it is for Roger, Angel on the other hand is not sure which path to take to work with the union or assist Roger Smith. The plot thickens so much that Acts 20-26 are not to be missed for these Acts are the key to answer Paradigm City survival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adult Swim is back in session. April 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
I remember staying up late at night watching this on Adult Swim with my sister, it's one of those animes for people who don't usually like animes. It has a more Film Noir art style as opposed to conventional big eyes,crazy hair anime style. Oh and theres robots..lots and lots of robots.
