Impressions:
With the finale of Season 13, it seemed very difficult to follow up on it, so we get a very different approach this time around, an anthology of various shorts, most of them one-shots. Some of them give us additional insight into the main story and others are just simple entertainment. We get a variety of animation styles, to include live action sequences, and a range of RT staffers get to try their hand writing and directing, which add to the experimental feel of the season. The so-called Mercenary Trilogy, a three-part side story featuring Felix and Locus is my personal favorite and it alone is arguably enough to warrant a purchase in my book, but going hand in hand with the variety is an overall unevenness and lack of consistency that leaves this somewhat weaker overall as a viewing experience. It's still worth seeing and completionists are bound to get it anyway, but I can't endorse it as strongly as I have other seasons. Particularly coming off the surprisingly strong Chorus Trilogy, this is a touch disappointing.
