(One episode watched):

This is one of those shows where the brief synopsis above does a better job of explaining what's going on than episode one of the show itself does. After watching the first episode I was left with little idea why mushrooms would have any effect on 'rust syndrome', let alone what triggered the nuclear scale explosion that devastated Tokyo, why giant crabs seem to wander the desert, why the mayor's bodyguards wear rabbit masks, why a cruise missile seems to transform into a mushroom, why a transport plane seems to be made up to look like a sad dog, etc, etc. Lots of weird shit happens, but episode one doesn't make much of anything clear. It's almost like this show is being bizarre just because it can. I was left wondering if I'd be able to wrap my mind around it and remember all this WTF stuff when episode two comes along. Nevertheless, we meet some interesting characters and if this show manages to tie things together it might be fun. Or it might just keep getting weirder and weirder.
