Still hilarious
28 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's weird seeing as how this wasn't one of the best episodes. Of course, even then it was still wonderful! This one also has a short "A Date With Your Family", which also had tons of great moments. This is a really crappy movie and it's great to see an early episode with Mike. I don't want to just spend this review quoting the episode. The sequences were quite funny too and I especially love the idea of Mike trying to make his own robot. I was a bit confused by the Lois Lane part. I guess it was just meant to show how Crow was obsessed over something so trivial. It's also funny to see Tom's broken crown at the end.

One sad part is when they do a joke about North Korea wanting nukes. It's great that a show like this is truly timeless, but it does make you realize something. The status quo is still the same with North Korea. Yes, I would know this about history as well. The best riffing might have been at the very end with the joke about a woman being in his glass. Another good part was how they were attacking a post card. Dang, do I love that music at the end. ***1/2.
