Funny, clever, and well-thought-out
3 January 2018 | by PabloThePirateSee all my reviews

The plot and humor of these episodes make them great.

Going the Extra Milo: Plot: Zack, the new kid, meets Milo and discovers that Milo is extremely unlucky. While they're waiting for the schoolbus, a concrete drainage pipe comes rolling toward them, and they miss the bus. In the rest of the A-plot, they try to get to school on time, but Milo's misfortune prevents them from doing so. This A-plot is great because it keeps you on your toes. Every 5 seconds, something new happens. And yet, it still flows nicely, because every event furthers the plot. In the B-plot, Melissa takes up bets with the other students on the bus on whether they'll arrive on time. The B-plot works because it's dependent on the well-put-together A-plot.

Humor: There are many clever jokes in this episode. Milo subverts the old cliché by saying "Sticks and stones can damage your vital organs, but always wear body armor." Later, when a wolf with its head in a beehive starts chasing them, Zack asks Milo how many fatalities are caused by bees and wolves together, and he answers, "Well, we would be the first." Those aren't the only funny moments in this episode, but I can't tell you all of them, or else this review would be too long.

Rating: 9.0/10

Sunny Side Up: Plot: Zack, Melissa, and Milo are tasked with building a container that will prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from the school roof for a science experiment. I like this concept because it's simple. It's not a convoluted plot that's really difficult to follow. Also, near the end, just before they're about to do the science experiment, Milo inadvertently breaks the egg that they were planning to use; currently, Zack, Melissa, and the audience think that that was the last one, so it seems like all hope is lost. Then, however, he remembers that he has another egg in his pocket, so they're able to use that one. All too often, I've seen cartoon characters (I'm looking at you, modern Patrick Star) who cause problems and make no effort to solve them. Here, Milo actually makes an effort to solve the problem that he caused. That is a stellar character trait!

Humor: Like "Going the Extra Milo," this episode is quite funny. In the beginning, Bradley scoffs at Melissa for declining to work with him, and she says, "Bring it on. I eat eggs for breakfast." He replies, "Yeah. So do all of us." Later, Milo is shocked when he "wakes up" to see that nothing bad happened the previous night; then, he actually wakes up to see that a tree fell through his window and says, "Yeah, that's more like it." It's a very clever subversion.

Rating: 9.2/10

Average: 9.1/10 (I would've rated this as a 9.1/10, but IMDB didn't let me rate it as that, so I had to rate it as 9/10.)
