  1. On the first watch, I considered this one to be fun, but just not as good as most of the rest of the series. Based on the lack of other comments, I suspect that opinion was wide-spread. On the actual-for-real-rewatch after seeing the whole first season and then going through it again... this does fare better. Not only are there, as usual, jokes that I missed, such as the fact that the hat that Clayface lost his arm Indiana-Jonesing after was actually morphed out of him... meaning he actually grew a hat out of his body that could fall off, instead of just growing a hat-shaped attachment... but also, the little lost hand is less annoying and more interesting (in short, more funny!) when you're viewing the ep with a real understanding of Clayface's personality. Clayface has already been shown to be obsessed with character motivation. I don't think Jim had that in mind when he introduced himself. However, an entity that basically has the same motivations as Clayface (1. study of acting, and 2. approval for one's self via study of acting,) but a less developed personality (therefore not many peripheral concerns about the other body's friends, or even as much shape-shifting or voice control skills,) quite probably would act like what the fist time around struck me as a rather annoying falsetto over-extended joke. When Jim introduced himself, the hand instinctively became interested in What Motivates This New Character, Jim the Cop? And from there on, progessively cast itself more and more as His Best Friend Also, I was mildly annoyed the first time I saw this that King Shark can bite heads off this week but goes berserk if he smells Robin's blood. My take now is that smelling blood when he's in water-breathing mode drives him into a frenzy until he feeds, but smelling and/or tasting blood when he's in air-breathing mode is fine. For now, I'm going with it. It fits, and it allows sight gags like a giant shark man ducking down, still being visible be cause of his fin, and then tip-toeing up to someone who he can effortlessly decapitate in one bite. A fate which the poor guard listening to Clayface's distraction-character's tale of woe no doubt envies. Also, I love that among the list of potential Harley hideouts that Gordon is crossing off on his list are "abandoned mannequin factory," "abandoned chemical factory," and "abandoned 'abandoned factory' movie set."
  2. At least now I know which team to root for. So I guess they'll merge next week.
  3. God fucking damn it. And now he has to get every idol and fire token on the island, just so he can give them to Michele and Wendell so they don't end up on the same island as him again.
  4. Points for making puns like a Batman villain. I wish they'd all do that. "Wendell-eaving gonna start?"
  5. Fuck these two and their drama. How weird is it that the fact that I want Yul to win is only the extremely second reason that I don't want him voted out right now?
  6. Apparently yes. But I'm not sure if they ever stopped sniping and playing head games with each other long enough to actually have sex.
  7. Adam, you don't have to explain that you're "slowly realizing" anything. We know you're not realizing anything quickly.
  8. Yul is so rational he doesn't even belong on the same planet as most of these people.
  9. Are you allowed to just grab a few long branches and carry the whole thing on them? Hell, they should have brought Tony's ladder.
  10. Next time Jeff says immunity is up for grabs, I want somebody to just grab it and run back to camp.
  11. Tony is so hyper and squirrel-brained. What do you do if a cop like him is interrogating you? Just smile, wait until he sees a shiny object, and then walk away slowly?
  12. This isn't a challenge. It's an Easter egg hunt.
  13. My job is still busy, but we're expecting to be shut down any week now. When the inevitable stir-craziness and mad cleaning begins, I expect to find many great treasures squirreled around my apartment. Especially change, socks, lighters, hair restraints, and old dried out bar wetnaps.
  14. Xena character. Son of Meg and Joxer. I think maybe he also wrote something.
  15. Doing yet another rewatch before Season 2, I realized there are still jokes that I missed the first time. Like, I caught the first time the joke that large, beefy Bane had the beef, and of course I caught that Joker didn't like his chicken, so yadda yadda yadda. But even though the term he used to describe it being overdone is widely used, I still don't think it was accidental that they gave him a reference to rubber chicken.
