Cinematic Titanic Docks At Frankenstein's Castle Of Freaks, Part 2

I don't think I wrote this review yet. I've been caring for sick people for the past several days and my mind is about the state it would be after doing a lot of time-traveling.

Oh, yes, here it is. Check it out. I'll wait.

Back? OK.

So, this is good. The team is really humming along; we're getting a much better, cleaner sense of their characters, their sense of humor, etc. We're getting a little more backstory, and a cute little device called "the breast blimp".

I'm very, very glad they've kept it clean, although Joel actually swears once, and I think there was a political joke or two--but really minimal stuff. That's good.

The pacing is really good, too. It isn't boiling hot at the beginning but the laughs are pretty steady.

I think that the live performances the crew is doing is also a big help; there's a real polish to this episode. I'm looking forward to the rest of 2009.

Sorry for the light review, but y'know, I'm running out of things to say besides "funny" or "less funny" or "more funny". I'll have to see if I can't raise my game....
