Dr. Madre


Max meets with KAOS defector Dr. Madre who has offered to give Max the map to the KAOS owned Melnick uranium mine. However, Madre informs Max that the wine he is drinking was spiked with a tonic that turned the map into a liquid and that it will cause him to break out in a rash in the form of the map. Unfortunately, it will take 48 hours for the map to fully appear and within that 48 hour window is Max and 99's wedding. Max must then try to find a way to not only postpone the wedding, but stay vertical for 48 hours in order for the map to appear. Of course, this doesn't stop a couple of KAOS agents from crashing the wedding. Written by Brian Washington <>

For Better or For Worse...
19 April 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I think the wedding episode was the series highest rated, but its also one of the most disappointing.

Alan Oppenheimer returns to the series, this time as KAOS scientist Dr. Madre. Madre is coming over to the side of goodness and niceness and gives Max the highly sought after map to the Melnick Uranium Mines--in the form of a liquid! If Max stays standing up and does not scratch his chest for 48 hours, the valued map will appear on his chest in the form of a rash. The trouble is, Max and 99 are supposed to get married the next day and nobody, including the Chief and 99 believe Max's story about the map.

An inspired idea in concept, but in practice the story is forced and unfunny, with the exception of Admiral Hargrave (William Schallert) as Max's best man. The Chief also has a nice moment when 99's mom gets interested in him. But that's about it. There are a number of jokes that make Max to be too dumb: Max shoots a string of spaghetti because he can't find the end; Max pointlessly falls down the stairs in his apartment ; Max orders two KAOS agents into the closet in his apartment then goes in there himself instead; there is a "zany" chase with Max standing up in a goofy car driven by Madre who doesn't know how to drive as he races to the wedding that goes on endlessly only to be topped by an unfunny fight scene at the wedding in which they kind of forget about the idea that Max has to remain standing up for the map to form.

This should have been one of the best episodes in the series. Instead its one of the worst.
