Talk about saving the best for last! The last two episodes of The Sword of Uruk (numbers 11 and 12) are simply fantastic! Having reached the top floor of the Tower of Gilgamesh, the parties finally get to tangle with the big, bad Gilgamesh. Episode 11 has some of the best action in the series. And yet, Gonzo comes up with ANOTHER surprise at the end of the 11th episode, as a lead in to the final episode. The secret of the Blue Crystal Rod, which started EVERYTHING from episode one of the Aegis of Uruk series, is finally revealed. And it’s time for Jil, Kaaya, and company to save the kingdom once again. . .
The script for the second series is simply outstanding, with fast snippets during the ending credits roll that show what happens to cast members after the Tower of Druaga is no more. In my opinion, The Sword of Uruk is a better series than the previous one. The writers managed to zip up every loose end from Aegis, while retaining the humor and laughs, and rolled with the plot from beginning to end.
Final Grade: A
