Boom (#3.1)
9 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved to see some mentioning of animal abuse on the show! Steve rescuing the orangutan from the laboratory (and also the hamsters of course) was a great story line. Of course it was done very simply and I wish that he would said that he sends him to sanctuary (but hey, those were 90's and zoo is better than lab anyways, or it is one of the actually good zoos!). Still an incredibly cute episode, loved that orangutan.

Carl's bomb episode was also hilarious. Lieutenant making fun of Carl being overweight was pretty funny (it wasn't in a very mean way) and the scene of them in the fitness room switching places on the machine was great.
