I don't pay attention to it like the I did the first year, the show quickly lost its luster for me.
However while while doing some work I happened to glance at the screen while Hiro talked to himself in the past and he mentioned he needed to save the waitress to be his true love. The MJ to his Spider-Man, one Hiro comments. The other responds "The Marle to my Crono!"
Three cheers for them.
Not only was it a nice nerdy reference, but an apt one at that.
Maybe I'll just go plop the game in and kick some Lavos ****...
Hahaha, I LOLed so loudly at this and said "F*CK YES, CHRONO TRIGGER REFERENCE!" My housemates looked scared :-P The funny thing is, it's a much better comparison than Spiderman-MJ because Crono does actually travel through time to save Marle!
I feel pretty blah about Hiro going to save Charlie, though. Unlike some other parts of the series, that section should have been closed forever. I also feel like we should have been able to see present Hiro in the past if something like this did actually happen (ie, go back to season 1 and look carefully and you'll see Hiro sitting at the counter behind a newspaper). I DID like the fact that we got to see some of season 1 from a different view.
Overall it makes me want to watch season 1 again, but hopefully it turns out good this time as well.
