So last episode i saw had ventriloquist dummies that turn into hot chicks that were all evil so i was expecting a lot for this one.

It had Bob Denver.

So Bob Denver has this Justin BEiber wig and a kid who has same wig. Kid is obsessed with comic books and mostly Eagle man (as a Buccaneer fan, i find Eagle man disgusting). SO in this very 1960's Batman like story, Bob Denver is with co workers, promotion in the air, ignorant kid etc etc. Don't want to ruin it but Thurston Howell is his boss and gives him the promotion when Bob Denver is mocked by his coworkers and didn't care and went for his kid. I know, you never saw that coming and blame me for ruining this episode for you.

Funny parts of that episode was a co-worker trying to ruin him and follow him around, drink in hand, in his bushes. I was like "been there". don't drink. Also the bad guy coworker was on a payphone with Bob Denver and pretended to be Tattoo, with his actual voice. I was busy doing stuff and not really paying attention but i swear Bob Denver was like "what are you saying tattoo, i cant understand you" So not even mentioning Bob Denver floating like a super hero in a cheap eagle suit with feathers flying around, that was the best story. the other was this reporter lady who looks like Michelle obama, (actually she is the same actress i think , in the episode of superficial friends who want to do a shopping spree. anyhow shes there to find some criminal Dr guy. Mr Rourke does his "but i must warn you..." bit, which i love. then she meets the guy, realizes he is helping the community. then crap happens , then he has to cross a bridge to help some woman while some other guys wants to kill him, named Man Kor, then he crosses the bridge, i realize i recognize bridge that was the one Bruce Cole died on one of his 25 episodes he was on, and then it turns out the child he is to save is Man Kor's kid. but Man Kor is stubborn and tries to kill the guy but like most movies, a few unexplainable lucky misses, he all the sudden gets it and all is good.

the end.

hoping for something better next time. Bob Denver. yikers.
