I was really happy about a lot of the action in this episode

But first, I liked the little fight between Shoutarou and Philip. Anyone want to bet that the Boss who dies in episode one is the hard-boiled model that Shoutarou is emulating?

I think his confrontation with Marina shows that the tears of a crying dame won't move this detective.

Again, I liked the battle, it was pretty exciting (didn't Kabuto episode 2 also have a crazy battle involving cars?). They really like to pull out the stops for episode 2's in Kamen Rider I guess. That said, I found the giant T-Rex head and bad CGI pretty funny. Like, Rescue Fire beats you over the head with the CGI, but that's okay with me because the background tends to also be CGI. Here, the CGI is blended with real video, which doesn't really mesh quite as well. It really just stands out in a bad way, and it didn't seem to be animated very well

Still, cool battle. Nothing like jumping off a building to save two chicks. Good thing you're two people in one body, thus allowing you to do two different things at the same time! Way to show that aspect off!

Whoa...we're only on episode 2, and 5/6 of W's "Halves" (from the OP) have already been used! Much more expedient than the "2 Episodes per new mode" formula of the last few years...

I'm getting Ratbat vibes off of That "Bat Shot" camera.

This episode cleared up some things, in my opinion. Not only we get to see more of Phillip (who didn't do much last episode), but we also get confirmation of the Gaia Memory's drug-effect. Seems they, as expected, make the user far more violent. I'd guess Memories used with the Double-Driver and the Sonozaki's Gaia-Driver do not possess such effects, but it seems the latter can take your life. Interesting.

Phillip is...interesting too. Seems he's not too much of the emotional type, considering he basically insulted Shoutarou for actually wanting to follow emotions. Of course he was right, that's not what a hard-boiled detective would do, but it'd be easier to agree if he didn't have that evil smile on his face. Phillip, good or just doing whatever he wants?

The "I didn't understand why you punched me yet now we're totally best friends again" thing was odd, and rushed. Oh well, guess they couldn't do much in one episode...

Heat-Joker can Falcon Punch things. That's pretty epic. Heat-Metal is odd by Rider standards, considering it's Metal, it must be the strong form of Double, similar to Kuuga's Titan Form, Agito's Flame Form and Kiva's Dogga Form. However its weapon is a rod, commonly used by the speed forms, like Kuuga's Dragon Form and Agito's Storm Form.

The Machine Hardboilder seems to be one of the best Rider Machines now. It can change the back into a Cyclone, Heat or Luna one? That's pretty epic. Seems they've got little to do with the forms other than the colour though, Cyclone being the common bike and Heat being a jet was kinda odd.

Five forms shown, four to go!

If you think the CGI in this ep is bad, wait till you see some of our local(Philippines) special effects shows.

I'm still liking the fact that Double has 9 forms already right off the bat.

I really liking this series.. The CG was kinda obvious.. but unless pour heaps of time and money into it, you not going to get much better. Even in hollywood blockbusters you can still notice it. So for a half hour show I had no gripe with it.

The land lord is hilarious. I love that kooky over the top reactions, like with her hair.. HA!

spoiler]I was curious to see the role that the hover vehicle thing played and I never expected the whole bike change thing. That was pretty cool.[/spoiler]

Keep up the good work peeps!

I only just noticed that the actress that plays Marina, was Lin/Lunagel in Magiranger.

Shes still gorgeous too!

... I must say this one thing right off the bat

spoiler]Nothing more embarrassing then having a T-Rex sneaking up on you and not noticing right off the bat XP[/spoiler]

That said, this was awesome. And why do I feel like I've seen the info dealer before? The guy Shoutarou meets up with... Anyone? Any idea where he might be from?

Any movie of book buffs out there also think 'One of us is taking the fall and it an't gonna be me' should have been somewhere in this episode?

Also, to top this all off, in the words (all be it not the spirit) of Kuranai Otoya. "A butt! A butt look it's a butt!"

Yes. Every left memory can be with every right memory, there's a total of three of each, therefore making 3x3 = 9 forms.

From them, we have seen Cyclone-Joker, Luna-Joker, Heat-Joker, Heat-Metal and, at the end of this episode, Cyclone-Trigger. That means that we haven't seen Cyclone-Metal, Luna-Metal, Heat-Trigger and Luna-Trigger.

> Not only we get to see more of Phillip

We're using Philip now in deference to the series' references to "The Long Goodbye"

>The "I didn't understand why you punched me yet now we're totally best friends again" thing was odd, and rushed.

It's not that strange. It's just him saying "water under the bridge"

>However its weapon is a rod, commonly used by the speed forms, like Kuuga's Dragon Form and Agito's Storm Form.

Well, it's not necessarily his armored form. Remember Shou's side is the weapon form. It could just have easily been called Rod Form and Gun Form
