"Swamp Thing" on a "Swamp"
5 August 2006 | by Bimm-NaataSee all my reviews

"You'll be the main course and your friend will be dessert! CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" Skin Man's scene where he firsts comes out of the Transducer (Trademarked by DC) is the best thing ever.This pilot episode cures depression. Best use of a guitar solo ever!!!!!!!!! This is my favorite possession ever. If anyone has a swamp thing toy I will buy it. Swamp Thing bananananana you make my heart sing Arcane is bad so come on, fight for right, we need you. Weed Killer has the best death scene in cinema history and jazz hands (click-click-click-click-click) Buy this show and watch it with your friends and you will never frown again, it is that funny. "You can't mutate a mutant".
