Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror Review
This episode was good, I really enjoyed Tesla, hated Edison, and that monster? Wow this team know how to ruin a good thing.
We are transported back to the 20th century where electricity is becoming all the rage. Tesla is trying to get his inventions up and running with investors while Edison is busy working his men to the bone and taking all the credit.
But there’s a darker evil happening here. A man, or what looks like a man, appears with glowing red eyes and powers created by, you guessed it, electricity.
And I loved this idea! Tesla and Edison having to work together against an evil that was in part something they helped create. It was interesting and, I’ll be honest, pretty scary. The way this man skulked around the invention room and killed off the workers was horrific and it had me on the edge of my seat.
But then the real monster turned up. A very basic version of the scorpion from The Runaway Bride. A scorpion creature that only wanted Tesla because she needed help with her ship that she stole from other out of this world beings.
And oh my days did she ruin everything that was great about this episode! Why was she needed? Why couldn’t we have stuck with an army of dead humans being controlled by electricity and killing until they find the men responsible for what they are? How incredible would that be?! Then there would be real meaning behind Edison fear mongering Tesla to the public and there would be real fear for them too. Instead we’re giving bumbling spiders who act like Bambi on ice.
This episode could’ve been so much better than it was and it’s such a shame it turned out the way it did. But I do love how it gave Tesla some time to shine and people can learn about a fantastic inventor they may have never heard about before.
To be honest I only know of him because of Epic Rap Battles of History.
What did you think of the episode?
Until next time.
