Some of you with sharp memories (assuming you’ve followed this blog since the begining) will know I already made an edit of this sometime ago, however that version was about eleven minutes. This is a full-length edit.
If I had to split M.A.S.K up into ‘seasons’ then episode 14 ‘Assault on Liberty’ would be my choice for season one finale. It has everything, mostly action, but kind of a sense of finality as VENOM vehicle are all trashed and the team prevent a quasi-9/11 terrorist plot from being carried out. They even come very close to killing off Miles Mayhem.
Even as a kid, I found the whole thing with Miles surviving the final act a little hard to swallow, so here we don’t cut to him surfacing and vowing revenge.
I did have to lose the destruction of Jackhammer and Piranha, the only portion of this edit I regret taking out is the latter as there’s really nothing wrong with it, but the cheesy idea of Thunderhawk wiping out all of Jackhammer with two pulse blasts just betrays all sense.
