Lupin the Third Part VI


01-Lupin-Fujiko.jpg

Episode 11
”The Truth and the Raven”

Last time:
Fujiko checks out the fossil of an archaeopteryx on display in the British Natural History Museum for a man who calls himself Mihail, Michael, or Miguel, on behalf of his lord who wants her to steal it.

The specimen was uncovered in a quarry in Solnhofen, Germany in 1861, 2 years after Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species. Mihail's employer believes that the three discovered fossils of archaeopteryx are the work of forger Karl Häberlein. Mihail is unconcerned whether the fossil is real or a fake, but wants her to steal the original which is sealed in a vault within the museum.

Fujiko breaks into the museum's vault and Lupin follows her. They find what appears to be the original fossil, but Lupin opens a door into another chamber where a huge version of the fossil is attached to the wall.

The sight of the object evokes the image of the Fallen angel and Fujiko suspects that Mihail is the agent of God. She decides not to proceed with the contract.

This time:
In the matter of the late Lord Faulkner’s connection to the Raven, Sherlock and Lupin have eliminated the impossible. Now only the improbable truth remains.

LUPIN'S LONDON PLAYLIST

If you're looking for some real estate, I know some folks who know of a place...

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band - "Jollity Farm"
(from the 1967 sketch series Do Not Adjust Your Set - which starred three of the guys who would go on to form Monty Python!)

Previously on Lupin III: What's this? I don't want religion in my Lupin!

Sorry we missed you last week Lupin. We were busy celebrating the birth of a country that rebelled against the country you're visiting (though, admittedly, that doesn't narrow it down too much).

Last time: I'm surprised this episode was allowed to air in certain states.
WHICH states may vary from person to person.

The re-return of Sherlock!

Lupin. Comdey, Adventure, Heists, and occasional outbursts of brutal violence.

Quoth the Raven, "Your ass is grass."

A loan shark? Well, now I don't feel too bad about him being gunned down like a dog in the street.

"The time's come to finally move on...Watson."
Elementary.

"Are you one of Raven's--"
He looks more to me like one of Starfire's.

There's no school today, so Holmes is taking me to the crime scene.

The Baker Street Irregulars? I read that book in grade school!

Well, she's already witnessed her father's dead body. What's a few more?

Uh, Holmes, you alright there buddy?

Lupin, it's Fujiko. She's the definition of a flake.

Take a picture, it'll last--oh, that IS a picture.

Couldn't he have just dressed up as a ghost and scared him off so he could pick up the land cheap?

"I am back."
We can see that.

I think Holmes needs to lie down for a bit.

One million pounds of what?
...I'm just kidding, I know that's money.

Why would Fujiko run away from a shootout?

Dr. Robotnik is locked and loaded.

You dropped your half-poster.

France, huh? Hey, how's that hacker girl from last season doing?

Hey, that's a valuable collector's item!

Sunrise to sunset? Well, obviously this means he was a vampire.

Ooh! They said the thing!

And let's end the episode with a bang.

"Care to explain what this real thing is?"
Coca-Cola?

How could he see what he was doing in a room that dark?

Wow, no wonder the curtains were closed.

This end sequence makes me think Fujiko's about to boink a cat.

So what was the deal with Holmes' near heart attack? Given the way he just stopped having symptoms, I wonder if he was faking the whole thing.

Who else here is enjoying CN's 30th-anniversary live stream? I can say I'm glad they're showing a balanced mix of classic and newer favorites along with some of the old promos.

Wonder why Courage is a part of Scoobtober even though it's not a part of Scooby's franchise at all. Weird.
Happy birthday Grandma Tucker.
