"Meet George Jetson"
25 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wasn't one of my favorite episodes of the show, but it was still quite fun. The highlight was probably seeing Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank in those troll costumes. I am so glad they included that at the end of the show as well. I admit Joel was kind of being mean in the beginning. I'm glad Gypsy showed up. It was cool to see "General Hospital" being riffed as well. I had no idea they did it more than once. It seems like more and more of the episodes I see have a short or something else before them.

It was cool to see the phrase "I am Iron Man" being said. I thought that was just something that the franchise had come up with recently. It's always nice to know that a classic series is truly timeless. Some of the best bits were, "Dish of ice cream? Don't tempt me" and "Do I really sound like that?" Another good part was, "Can I use the phone?" followed by "Well, the chicken fried phone is good too". I guess if more happened in the actual movie, it would have been more interesting. ***
