Hmm.. Sounds quite a bit similar to "The Wrath of Dark Kat" (I
Feral & SWAT Kats working together to stop DK from dropping the
Feral was an "outsider" due to Steele's over-confidence in trying to
secure Feral's job. And it did work! I always liked the stories
Feral, TBone & Razor "get along" more than the usual attitude taken
by Feral (...vigilantes...blah, blah).

But I digress...

I agree completely with you on this one! :-)
Actually, the interaction between the main characters on a
personal basis provides for some very entertaining moments.
Each time the writers give us a little glimpse into the "every-day"
life of TBone & Razor, the characters become _more_ believable
and not just a "robot" who goes out & does a job 1, 2, 3...
It adds a "three-dimensional" aspect to the character &
personality of each of them. I would actually prefer to see
more of this in each episode! But given the 22 min. barrier, I'm
sure it's really difficult for the writers.
