Well, the next episode just aired: "Dude, Where's my Eggman". And oh boy! This was a good one!

Basically, the plot is just as the title suggests. Orbot and Cubot wake up to find their memory data erased and their creator missing. To find him, they decide to retrace the doctor's steps. And that's pretty much it (spoiler-free).

It was unique, having an entire episode centered around Eggman's minions. Sonic and the gang made only brief appearances in a couple of scenes. Knuckles, in particular, having a flashback/daydream of his last encounter with Eggman in an exaggerated DBZ/Superman-style fight. Probably the biggest scene he's gotten in the show thus far, as well as the funniest!

There were lots of other funny scenes in the episode, but that one in particular had me splitting my sides with laughter. Only one other person shares Knuckles' fantasy of being a godlike superhero, and that person is... Ken Penders. xD

Don't worry Knuckles is finally getting a limelight episode in a couple of weeks ('Unlucky Knuckles').

 

I loved this episode too, it's nice to see them focusing on the side cast. This is probably most focus we've had on the villagers and we get some depth with Orbot and Cubot's relationship with the doctor.

 

Anyone reading the Boom comics by the way? Flynn replicates the show pretty well (I can't help but enjoy some of the original gags like the recurring Logo gimmick too).

I just watched the latest episode, "Cowbot". And... I've got nothing.

Not that it was a horrible episode, no. But looking back at it in hindsight, all I can say for it is "What just happened?" It's probably the most forgettable episode so far.

Basically, Eggman sends a robot cow after our heroes and it's filled with a dangerous substance called Moonarium (get it?). Before it can do its job, Tails hijacks the cow's programming and reverses it. But as a result, it slowly heads back towards Eggman's base and they need to help Eggman prepare for its arrival. Otherwise, everything within a ten mile radius will be vaporized.

I guess my problem with it was its premise. I mean, with a title like "Cowbot", I didn't know what to expect. But for an episode concerning a robot cow filled with explosives, it didn't seem that urgent. Instead, the episode seemed more interested in spending its runtime on having another bonding episode with Eggman. In fact, this whole episode seemed like a weaker retelling of "Can an Evil Villian Crash on Your Couch for a Few Days?".

On the bright side, there were a few funny moments. Tails' sport commentary on the game of Coconut Toss was amusing, and the bit where Knuckles boasts about beating his own score was great. I also chuckled at Eggman's delayed entrance.

Also, eleven episodes in and we got our first mention of a past episode. And apperently, Angel Island also exists in this universe.

Well, time for the weekly update.

This week's episode was "Circus of Plunders". And it's probably the best episode of the entire series so far.

In this episode, Tails' invention isn't working properly and everyone (minus Sonic) blames him for the damage it nearly caused. So while Tails is away, Sonic and the gang run into T.W. Barker (the fancy wolf that stole Eggman's Eggomatic in "Dude, Where's my Eggman"), who hires them to perform in his circus. It's all fun and games at first, but like most circus owners, Barker is a crooked businessman and traps them in cages so that they can't escape. So it's up to Tails to rescue them.

I'll say this, it's nice having an episode with some actual drama. At first, I was expecting the unappreciated Tails to run away from home and get hired by Barker, only for Sonic and the gang to rescue him. But surprisingly, the roles were reversed this time around; which was interesting. Also, T.W. Barker reminds me a lot of Fowlfellow (a.k.a. "Honest John") from Disney's "Pinocchio".

And once again, it had some great humor. The best scene being the name-confusion on Eggman's octopus/squid/spider robot, with the doctor getting frustrated by their forgetfulness. But I also liked the scene with Amy accusing Barker of being sexist for casting her as the sad clown. The bits with Eggman's TV remote, Knuckles questioning Sonic's middle name, and Barker's miserable performing bears were also great.

Sheesh. One week later, and nobody's commented on last week's episode.

Oh well... Maybe my luck will change this time.

Speaking of which, this week's episode was called "Unlucky Knuckles". In it, Knuckles suspects that his string of bad luck is due to an unbalance in the universal luck scale. To correct the balance, he begins subjecting himself to sheer injury in order to make his bad luck run out. Meantime, Eggman detects a change in his luck and decides to invade the town, feeling that everything will go his way. Fed up with Sonic's insistence that there's no such thing as luck, Knuckles decides to join Eggman in hopes of fixing his luck.

Overall, not outright hilarious, but it was still entertaining.

Well, this week's episode was a hoot!

As the title suggests, this episode's plot focused on a meteorite which crashes on the island. Sonic and the gang go to investigate, but Dr. Eggman calls dibs on it and tries to claim it before they can. But upon touching it, the meteorite's radiant surface causes them to switch bodies. Now it's up to Eggman (Sonic) to warn everyone about it before Sonic (Eggman) destroys them, but will they believe him in that goofy getup?

I enjoyed this episode mostly for Eggman in Sonic's body. It's so amuzing watching the diabolical doctor try to act like the kind-hearted hero we know and love, yet his cruel personality is constantly oozing out of him whenever he's onscreen. Roger Crieg Smith can do a pretty good Eggman impression.

And the bit where Sonic unsuccessfully tries explaining the situation and demonstrating his speed to Orbot & Cubot (while in Eggman's body) was hilarious. Speaking of which, I especially loved Orbot's expressions throughout this episode. There's something amuzing about the way the robot emotes using his "eyebrows".

Overall, another funny episode. Here's hoping the next one is also good.

Re: Aim Low.

 

It was nice to see that Sonic is actually dependent on Eggman to have a normal life. His speed is actually incredibly annoying when he doesn't have someone to use it on. I guess this episode kind of answers Sonic's question at the end of SatAM about what would he do without a villain... answer: go crazy with boredom.

 

With regards to Knuckles, I ponder if he's really as dumb as we think. The fact he's self-aware of not thinking makes me believe he dumbs himself down for whatever reason. Maybe he's humble and doesn't want to appear perfect (as otherwise he'd have a strong mind and perfect body)?

 

Tails growling at Sonic was wonderful.

Huh. It's nice to see I'm not the only one still watching the show. Thanks!

As for today's episode, "Aim Low", Eggman is feeling down in the dumps. To help him get back into shape, he hires a "professional" motivator to cheer himself up. With his confidence seemingly restored, Eggman fires him and decides to start a brand new plan, only to sink back into depression once again. Meantime, Sonic learns of Eggman's low spirit and starts going bananas once realizes that his heroic speed is useless without a villian to oppose him. So it's up to the rest of the team to cheer Eggman up to restore the balance.

As for my thoughts, I thought it was okay. For some reason, I felt that the episode's pacing and execution was a bit off. Not a bad episode by any means, but I think it could've been better.

There were some funny bits though. Knuckles had a few great lines:

Tails: Ever since Eggman got depressed, Sonic's been making me nuts!

Knuckles: He hasn't cooked anything for me. He's just been driving me crazy.

But my favorite bit was Sonic and Amy's brief argument over her painting.

Amy: Sonic, be careful! This is 100% organic, fair-trade paint. It's very expensive, and very green.

(He looks at her picture)

Sonic: It looks like pink to me.

Just so you know, LogiTeeka, I've been watching the episodes as soon as I'm able to every Sunday, I just haven't been too enthused to post about it for whatever reason.

 

I've liked most of the series so far and my original impression stands: it aspires to do very little other than make you laugh and for the most part it pulls it off, and it's actually quite clever in some ways. The sense of timing is generally good and the dialogue is slick and well-delivered, showing that the VAs have a good grasp on the characters they're voicing. I loved the escalation in pitch between Knuckles and Sonic in 'Unlucky' ("Skill"/"luck"/"skill"/"luck"/"skill") - Knuckles becomes increasingly unhinged, while Sonic remains completely deadpan. Beautiful!

 

I still take issue with Knuckles' characterisation - at first I thought it was just my natural reaction after interpreting him to be of a very different disposition in other Sonic media, but at this point I'm just more-or-less convinced that he's a one-note character at the moment. Sticks got a treatment in an episode of her own that made her a lot more likeable in my eyes, but so far Knuckles, whenever the spotlight's on him, is just made out to be dumber and dumber. He shows some self-awareness about it, but overall that just makes him seem like he's got no self-confidence or intelligence.

 

I share your thoughts about the last episode: fun and amusing though the pacing is all over the place, especially near the end where the plot resolves itself literally in the last 30 seconds and then just stops. I like that Sonic, without a sense of purpose, basically turned into what I expected: an annoying arsehole. I was expecting his paranoia to be mirrored by Sticks' similar take on the lack of Eggman's presence, but alas, she doesn't even get a single spoken line in the whole episode. Guess her voice actor had the week off or something.

Well, the time has come once again. This week's episode was entitled "How to Succeed in Evil Without Really Trying" (boy, was that a mouthful).

In this episode, Tails creates a harvest machine to help Sticks pick "beige berries" for her entry in a pie competition. Unfortunately, it spirals out of control and lays waste to the entire orchard. Forced to replant the grove, Tails' little accident attracts the attention of the Lightning Bolt Society (a secret club of thieves who wish to gain control of Bygone Island's fruit trade) who invite Tails into their organization to gain access to his technology. Using stolen Eggman tech, the LBS completes the chore for him by replacing the replanted seeds with mutant spores which grow into Deku Babas (I'm not kidding), which prompts Sonic, Amy and Eggman to storm into the group's not-so-secret hideout.

This was a fun episode. The plot was a bit of a rehash of "Circus of Plunders", but I didn't mind it as much. Knuckles had two great lines, and Sonic and Amy's argument over their break-in plan (pizazz vs. pizza) while a LBS member nonchalantly asks them to keep the door open for him (which they decline) was hilarious. But what made this episode interesting was the LBS itself. The group is entirely composed of minor villains from previous episodes (Dave the Intern, Willy Walrus, the weasel thugs, and possibly the Gogobas), and their goal is to create complete chaos and spread destruction. Looks like Sticks' insane conspiracy theories about an evil, Illuminati-like organization weren't entirely wrong.

Also, that creepy ending with Dave using the mutant seeds as hamburger toppings and eating it... Could it be foreshadowing something in the future? I know the show is trying to keep a loose continuity, but Dave has been brought back multiple times in the series lately. Could they be building him up to be the next antagonist? That would be kinda neat, actually.

Another week has passed, and you know what that brings.

This week's episode was titled "Don't Judge Me". It begins with Sonic and company defeating Dr. Eggman's latest robot. But in their victory, Eggman fakes getting badly injured and takes Sonic to court to sue for the damages. By making Sonic look like a violent psychopath in front of the robot judge, Eggman nearly manages to trick the jury into siding with him until Amy arrives at the last moment to disprove the accusation.

After watching this episode, all I can say is... What did I just watch? Seriously, this has to be the WIERDEST episode of the series thus far. I mean, for an episode focused entirely around courtroom procedures, lawyers and lawsuits; a hippie disco party is the last thing I was expecting. There were funny moments here and there, but most of them came from the sheer randomness depicted onscreen.

The scenes with Knuckles acting as Sonic's lawyer and interrogating himself were amusing, but my favorite bit was Eggman's fake evidence proving his innocence (the music alone killed me). Comedy Chimp's scenes sums up every talk-show host in existence, and I'm pretty sure the bit where Knuckles comments about his mouth tasting like socks after the party was a drug reference.

And I'll agree with Sticks on this one: Eggman's songs are indeed too catchy.
