The one with the growling Gan
25 May 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

When Gan's limiter implant malfunctions and he begins growling and attacking people in an embarrassing and ridiculous fashion The Liberator heads to space station XK72 where they seek the help of surgeon Professor Kayn. Kayn is predictably unhelpful and informs the Federation that the crew is on the space station.

"Breakdown" is really as boring as "Blake's 7" ever gets, really. Mainly a lot of growling and really fake-looking attacking. Some good lines here and there maybe but other than the Federation discovering the crew is on board absolutely nothing remotely interesting happens. But if you want to see Gan growling for 50 minutes, by all means enjoy.

3/10
