They're Crispy, They're Crunchy, They're Even for Lunchy
This is a Max episode. A goodie. Didn't remember it at all, and so I watched this one with a very fine-toothed comb. Max is the target of an elaborate scam to bilk he and the Harts out of their money. These con artists are quite good and succeed in conning everyone out of their stability just as much as anything else. The scammers convince Max that he's won a million dollars big marketing slogan contest for a breakfast cereal. The title line for which is one of his many attempts. Suddenly, Max finds himself living the life of, well, the Harts. Max moves out, the new hired help moves in, and it's just one big plate of sad. And totally weird. And they all know it, the great big elephant in the room. Now, the really interesting stuff includes Jennifer straddling Jonathan to give him a back rub as he lays on his stomach. Never seen anything like that one to date! Then there's the heart-to-heart Jonathan has with Max when he's trying to decide if he should move out on his own or not, and Jonathan tells Max he loves him. And Max is speechless and does little more than masticate on the marbles in his mouth. I liked what that scene was trying to do, but I didn't feel like it got quite pulled off. But, ya really gotta love how Max came by to pick up his aprons! Whimpering Freeway was a bummer, though. Just as the bad guys are about to pull off some ungood things, it's Max to save the day. Ultimately, I wasn't the biggest fan ever of this episode. I feel like Lionel has done better work with less to do. But it was still some fun stuff.
