PostSubject: Least Favorite T.V. Episode?   Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:19 pm

Okay, let's face it. After 3-2-1 Penguins lost Ron Smith and all of it's original actors, the quality died.

I'm not saying the (would you call it a reboot even though it is in the same continuity?) was bad, but the lack of quality compared to the other clearly showed.

So what would you say is the worst of the NBC 3-2-1 Penguins?

Here is my list (it is a bit long)

Lazy Daze - It seems forced. I mean, trash on a planet...it is just a bit much.

Practical Hoax - Midgel seems to act very immature as well as Jason. The plot could be good if executed better.

Comedy Of Errors - Jason...could you really stoop that low?

Invasion of the Body Swappers - The lesson doesn't really apply to me, so I seem to just hear things about beauty the entire time (which I don't exactly follow) A big discussion over a doll? Really? +Jason...

Compassion Crashin' - It seems odd that even when the crew is trying to help Michelle, she doesn't allow it until Fidgel's experiment fails.

There are others things that rub me the wrong way about these episodes, but those are just some key problems. There are other episodes I don't exactly love, but they are not on my "Worst" list.

These are the episodes I'm not really a fan of.

I Scream, You Scream - Jason and Michelle arguing in their annoying-as-hell T.V. version voices, do I need to say more?

Compassion Crashin' - Do I have to point out how bad this is?

Comedy of Errors - Jason, why are you such an asshole?

Do Unto Brothers - Moral was good. Plot line wasn't.

Between an Asteroid and a Hard Place - Michelle was acting so bitchy in this episode. The premise was bad. I mean, Michelle wanting to get revenge on Jason just because he ate her brownie? Give me a break. Other villains have better reasons for getting revenge on someone than that. The plot wasn't too bad, but it should have focused on the Penguins trying to reform Cavitus, kind of like in the MLP FIM episode "Keep Calm and Flutter On." In fact, the only good thing I can say about this episode is at least Michelle didn't become a dumbass in distress!

This may change over time.

Oh yeah, I would also put Between An Asteroid and a Hard place on my list.

I actually don't think I have seen Do Unto Brothers...but now I kinda don't want to.

I'll put the spoiler tag just to be safe.

Oh yeah, I did see that one. I actually didn't mind it, but I thought that Sol being there was a little unnecessary, as well as the fact that growing on of the Jelly Worm guards was a pretty stupid idea for the Penguins...

I did not expect Midgel to be playing pranks on the other crew members in "Practical Hoax."

Why did Jason had be such a grade A asshole in "Comedy of Errors"?!!

In "Compassion Crashin' ", if Kevin had told the others that he broke the behavior modifier, then Jason and the Penguins wouldn't have turned into jerkasses, and EVERYTHING wouldn't have gone to shit.

When I first heard the title "Invasion of the Body Swappers" without hearing the plot, I was expecting some body-swapping aliens or something really cool. Also, it wasted a really good plot. Zidgel and Kevin switching bodies? With all the trauma they each have to go through while in the other's body? Awesome! Too bad it focuses on Michelle feeling like she's not pretty with the body swapping being a side thing.

I thought Compassion Crashin' was pretty dumb. Considering that the penguins are all adults I fail to see why they were so dim on the idea of compassion. I know that Fidgel asks her what's wrong once, but that scene is pretty much useless and brushed aside later.
Heck, when Michelle was sad in CSOB, ZIDGEL, the most oblivious and vain penguin in the universe, sees there's something wrong and asks whats up.

I'm not too fond of Lazy Daze either, considering how weak the plot for it is.

Wow...I never really thought about it that way. Perfect explanation.
