It’s the hottest cable series this side of The Walking Dead! Twenty-First Century Golem deals with the adventures of Jewish mythology’s creature the Golem set in the world of today. Last night was the first time it aired on its new night – Saturdays.
The second episode of this second season dealt with our heroic Golem still being trapped at gigantic size, towering several stories above the tanks and other armaments of the dictatorial Iranian government’s military. The Golem successfully survived his battle with the army, saving several innocent Iranian civilians in the process.
Since the heroic monster had also destroyed Iran’s nuclear program at the end of the First Season, thus thwarting their plans to unleash an atomic holocaust, the Mad Mullahs appealed to the U.N. In typical fashion the U.N. condemned Israel for the Golem’s actions and accused the Mossad of having created the creature.
Barack Obama, the clueless, blustering comic relief villain of the series who serves as the Golem’s combination J Jonah Jameson and General “Thunderbolt” Ross weighed in next. He demanded even more concessions from Israel to the mad- dog Hamas terrorists, supposedly to make up for the Golem’s innocent actions.
Frederick Lawrence, the cowardly, spineless slug of a man who is the president of hypocritical and gutless Brandeis University, was recruited at the end of the previous episode to serve in Obama’s Top- Secret Operation: Grow A Pair. The sniveling Lawrence was biologically grafted to a gigantic combat robot, serving as the artificial brain for the construct.
Obama, after pocketing half the funds allocated for the project, sent the flying android to the Middle East to try to destroy the Golem once and for all. The 300-foot tall “mandroid” and the mighty clay monster met in combat in the Saudi Arabian desert in a battle that was, sad to say, kind of boring.
It was mostly a rehashing of last week’s “big bad Golem crushing the Iranian army” action. The huge robot with the whiney little bitch Frederick Lawrence (actually an actor portraying him) inside made for a potentially great Kaiju episode but the execution was pretty poor.
Hopefully next week’s episode will be better.
