"Number two thousand pencil works every time!"
10 December 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This episode is quite notable in being the only one where we get to see none other than Gypsy try her hand at riffing. It seems like a pretty obvious thing to try, more like something from a fanfic. Anyway, she sadly only lasts for five minutes before realizing she isn't good at it and leaves. Well, she was created to take care of the satellite and not to riff. It was really weird to see Joel with a super long leg in that one part. At the end, they all toast to finally being done with all the Hercules movies!

It was just funny to hear Gypsy's voice in this. I guess her first riff was "Movie's starting!". I just liked them saying, "Those hieroglyphics show a lobster eating Mr. Ed" with her saying, "Really?" and Joel responding, "I think he's kidding, Gypsy". She got to say, "Look at that dumb name, it's so stupid!". Her only real good riff was, "They're steam cleaning the horses!". As for the rest of the movie we get great stuff like, "If you had to die" followed by, "I wouldn't mind!". The Uranus jokes were pretty good, hee hee. I also laughed at, "They're all photo negatives of Abe Lincoln!". ****
