A Strange, Yet Enjoyable Episode
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Headhunters" is the third episode of Gravity Falls, and is another winner. When Soos accidentally opens a door at the beginning, Stan's long-forgotten wax figure collection is revealed, only for them to discover that the wax Abraham Lincoln, Stan's favorite, has melted. Seeing Stan's displeasure, Mabel resolves to make him a new one, and decides to build it in Stan's likeness. When the statue is found missing its head, however, the plot begins to thicken. With characters such as Toby Determined and Pizza Guy making their debuts in the show and Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland having their first speaking parts, and an unexpected, creepy twist, this episode is another warped yet funny and entertaining episode from creator Alex Hirsch. The villains in the episode are funny, creepy and fun to watch, and the fight scenes are enjoyable. Altogether, although this is probably the least-strong episode of the series so far (though it's not because this episode it bad; merely because the two preceding episodes were so good), its another fun episode in the series that, as usual, has one last mystery.
