057 – The Claws of Axos

I must admit, I had actually only watched The Claws of Axos once before. I was around seven years old, so my memory of this particular serial was hazy at best, but I remember thinking the golden faced, angelic Axons were pretty cool, and… well that’s pretty much all I could recall. As such, I…
