Unusually unneeded ending.
3 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This was a clever episode. Not a scary episode, but it was clever. It's plot is an overweight woman tries to diet, so she takes up a program where she sticks these plug type things in her ears. Soon she finds she can't eat at all because all of her food is alive and is talking to her. This is a funny episode more than anything else and the puppeteering on the food is nice and looks funny. My problem with this episode is what most like best. The ending of it is so violent, and it just seemed weird. Our main character wasn't introduced as a bad character, just fat. But I guess it was needed to spice up the episode.

My rating: Excellent episode. 22 mins. TV PG V
