Before I get to this review, I just wan to mentioned how friend and co fonder SilverEagle91 is making a top 30 LPS episode list, check it out.silvereagle91.deviantart.com/j…
I can't believe we are less than week away from the season 3 finale, how time flies, so this is the last stand alone episode of LPS of season 3, so will the stand alone episodes of LPS end on a high note, well only way to find out.
We begin with a flashback or Russell at LPS, I don't know how long ago this was, but with Mrs. T's hair, this is must have a long time ago, how are the pets still alive, I do wonder how much of this flashback is exaggerated, I mean the pets do have an overactive imagination. Russell vows to never be unsafe again. Cut to the opening.
We being how episode proper outside LPS, we see a little girl holding a balloon walking with her dad, when a ice cream truck shows up and she lets go of the balloon and drags her dad to chase after the ice cream truck.
Inside LPS, Russell is being Russell being obsessed with safety, Blythe enters with our guest camper of the week a groundhog named Harold. Harold and Russell don't hit it off, with Harold wrong facts, and despite that Harold is super popular which drives Russell insane.
Russell talks to Blythe, telling her he can't wait for this day to be over because of his frustration with Harold. Russell wished this day would end, Blythe tells him you should never wish a day away.
We continue with Harold frustrating Russell with his wrong facts, which is hilarious when he got Indiana and India mixed up. Finally the day ends, and goodbye Harold we hardly knew you.
The next day, we are outside LPS, we see a little girl holding a balloon walking with her dad, when a ice cream truck shows up and she lets go of the balloon and drags her dad to chase after the ice cream truck. This seems familiar, I am feeling some deja vu.
Blythe enters with our guest camper of the week a groundhog named Harold, wait a minute the day is repeating itself, and only Russell is noticing.
Russell obvious tries to tell everyone they have been through this before, but no one believes it, not even Blythe, Russell blames Harold and gets along worse with Harold than the day before is that even possible.
The next day, it is the same day again, the day repeats and Russell is going even more insane. Blythe tells Russell this could be a chance for him to fix things. Russell takes that literally and fixes everything in the shop.
Well as you can guess, the day repeats again, and everything Russell fixed is broken again. This time Russell completes loses it, so much that Blythe even calls the vet. Hilarious scene.
Harold tries to calm Russell down, Vinnie says Russell has gone batty when we see a bat and tells Vinnie that comment wasn't necessary. Anyway Harold says something about hedgehogs and Peru, and Russell really goes insane. Russell just accepts it.
Russell borrow Zoey's MP3 player the next repeat day and does it for the next few repeat days, and uses that time to learn how to dance and eventually him and Zoey have a duel dance. Russell says he understands music now. Russell than does the same and learn how to do the other pets interests, Vinnie's dancing, Pepper's comedy, Sunil's magic, etc. and gain an understanding of his pals.
Russell decides on the next repeat day to get to know to know Harold. This time the two of them hit it off, as Russell learns not to take things to seriously, and even saves Harold from getting injured. Harold even gets a fact about safety, and admits he can wrong sometimes, Russell and Harold fix the broken board, and the two of them bond, and thus the day ends.
Russell thinks the day will just repeat, and think he will see his good friend Harold the next day, but the next day finally arrives, though Russell is a bit sad not to see Harold anymore. Russell is happy though that he got to know everyone better and fixed the board. Though Russell is worried the new guest camper Crash Dangerfeather. Good luck Russell.
My thoughts on this episode.
I loved this episode. The flashback at the beginning was nice, Mrs. T had dark hair back than, I wonder how long was this flashback. It was a very cute flashback.
The episode was hilarious, I loved the bit with the balloon and the ice cream truck, the little girl is adorable, we keep seeing that over and over again to let us know what day it is.
Harold was a likable character, I thought Russell was a little rough with him at the beginning, he means well, he is not trying to cause trouble.
I loved Blythe's look in this episode, and the nature of the episode of each day over looping does make it so there can't be no subplot.
And Russell he was hilarious going crazy, and than taking advantage of the time loop, it was sad when he realized he won't be seeing Harold again.
And credit to the episode that this is canon and not a dream, like other series might do.
Russell, he is hilarious as the straight man of this episode, and also having character development
Harold, he is alright guest camper
Blythe's outfit, really loved her look, though that is part of the negative that I will get to.
The humor, from the bat joke to Russell's dancing, the humor was top notch.
Only one negative, but really a nip pick, is why is Blythe is wearing the same outfit in the last scene. The rest of the episode it made sense, but after the time loop ends, makes no sense.
This episode gets a 9 / 10, bring on the finale.
Everyone one more week to go, don't know what I will do after that, anyway have a nice LPS day or days. Ha ha.
