The Mysterious Cities of Gold - Episode Five

What do you do when stranded on a deserted island? Eat turtles, cactus, and whatever the natives are cooking. Wait, I thought you said this island was deserted?!

I've been waiting for this episode for a while now. Mendoza is pretty capable and all, but he seems to represent all that is scientific and ordinary in the world. Things never get truly crazy with him and his minions around. While Tao is my least favorite of the children, his introduction means that all of the main characters have finally been presented. Now we can get down to interpersonal conflicts and real adventures.

Favorite parts:

This is the part where Esteban really begins to shine. I loved the part where he swam out after Zia, both because it shows his courage and because it proves that he can survive independent from Mendoza. I also liked when he explained how tired he was from swimming all that way...but that he was still up for a fight, if that's what it came to.
