Not as great as the others
30 September 2018 | by jp281995See all my reviews

This is a good episode, but not as fantastic as the others. It's the weakest episode by far.

The story is about a failed comedian who voices a comedic cartoon named Waldo. It is a political satire. The acting is great but the story lacks something.
