“Never Change”

The fun never stops for Mister’s Ragtime Band. Except when Franca is involved, because she seemes to have an unhealthy obsession with abandonment.

All of the characters on this particular wrong side of the law have nothing but noble intentions, so she should just get over it. In the future, everyone will have robot heads in bird cages, and we will be better for it.

Mister engineers the perfect plan to get to Graceland. Unfortunately, Angelica and Madame Marciano know that this is the ultimate goal, so complications come up.

Even if Mister came up to Franca and sang “Everything I do, I do it for you”, she wouldn’t believe him. She is such a drag to have around the ship and she isn’t very good at disguises either. I mean, Katana gets to dress up like Freddie Mercury, and Mister gets to be Santa Claus, but take off Franca’s dixie hat and sunglasses and you’ve got the same girl. Even Swamp gets to do his hair up all fun!
You lack imagination, Franca, and that’s precisely what’s letting you down! You’ve surrounded yourself with older men who have fatherly affections for you and you’re just ignoring these feelings! Blues’ treasure is clearly going to be the power of love, or something (ignoring the fact that we saw him breaking into a bank vault to get it), so it’s clear that Mister’s efforts to get it have been a labour of love.

I was surprised that Feb was so open with Angelica, but that can possibly be put down to the fact that if Angelica brings her around to where Madame Marciano is at, they can reunite. I suppose it’s better to be a helpful droid with a bit of attitude than it is to be a surly bitch droid. Angelica doesn’t get much of a chance to do things but it’s clear that in her pursuit of the law she’s going to go outside of its boundaries. She’ll probably become a fugitive herself, especially as Marciano holds all of the cards.
As for Marciano herself, there’s not much to say except that it’s great that she dressed herself up in the finest Matsumotoan fashion. I give her the thumbs up and note the irony of the fact that May has a more natural skin tone than her presumably human mother.

Coyote Ragtime show is a great caper show that isn’t demanding and chooses to no longer insult the audience. Sure, it has gimmick characters but we’re given more free rein with those that actually matter, and for that reason I cannot complain.


  1. >>> I was surprised that Feb was so open with Angelica

    I think you mean May here.

    >>> note the irony of the fact that May has a more natural skin tone than her presumably human mother.

    Actually, outside of the mass killing and emo facial distortions (by the otherwise hawt April), all the sisters seem to be nicer and more human than Marciano.

  2. In the future, androids will be able to eat like humans. Not only that but they will also prefer peach over other types of food! Humanity’s future is bleak indeed.

    The moral of the story is: Never trust salesmen wearing aloha shirts (especially if they have beards)
