Episode six of Fail Safe Sisters has just been released and there’s a new heroine, a new villain, and a new costume—a costume that the heroine barely fits into. I mean that last part as a compliment. Check out screen shots below, along with my review.
Not since Suki Deluxe has a heroine graced our screen in a Next Global Crisis production wearing this form-fitting a costume, which has the side-effect of highlighting certain assets. Pleased to meet you, Lucy Zillion! I hope to see a lot more of you soon.
Anyway, without any pretense, Lucy walks into a basement and quickly runs into her opponent, Bullettt. After some initial smack-talk, the countdown for the normal Fail-Safe Sister calisthenics period starts. But after only a few seconds elapse, Bullettt attacks! This kind of bugged me a bit because I would have appreciated the opportunity to watch Lucy stretch, but I guess I’ll survive.
When the fight starts, Lucy lands a few punches but hurts her hand much more than she hurts Bullettt. He eventually catches one of her punches and forces her down to her knees. He then grabs her by the throat, lifts her in the air, and tosses her across the room. Lucy recovers but quickly takes a punch to her stomach. Bullettt goes in for the kill when he fires some energy beams from his eyes, but Lucy is able to activate a force field to protect herself. Lucy briefly takes control by activating another power that allows her to make any space a vaccum. She deprives Bullettt of oxygen which almost knocks him out.
The remainder of the fight goes back and forth, but I can’t spoil who eventually comes out on top. I can tell you there is a scene where Bullett locks Lucy in an extended bearhug, and I thought that sequence was well executed.
This episode is good for a lot of reasons, but one thing I really like is the heavy use of superhuman powers. They have been used sparingly in some FSS episodes, but they are unleashed pretty heavily here. Bullettt is an enjoyable villain, and Lucy Zillion has a real “wow” factor about her, in my opinion. For a company that is no stranger to casting beautiful women, Lucy truly shines like few others in her first appearance. She’s a beautiful young woman and a terrific actress. Just a real great casting choice.
