Okay what can I say about this episode, well it is a tale of two episodes. One tale is freakin awesome, had a great song, while the other not so much. And we a great moment for a couple of characters I like even though it is minor.
In this episode Russell tries to prove to the other pets he can be fun and not so uptight all time, while Blythe has to deal with her psychotic friend who thinks she is perfect.
The pet plot I loved it, I love Russell in his hawian shirt, looks real stylist. He showed his doubters he can have fun, though he took it to far. And for your shipper, when get some Penny x Russell. But the best part by far is the song, "Fun Being Fun", it is so catchy. At the time I thought nothing could top "BFF', but this might have, one thing I notice about this series, Daniel Ingram keeps topping himself with these great song. We also have our first guest day camper a male pig named Mary Francis, not a memoriable character but not a bad character either. He was just there.
Now onto the Blythe plot, Blythe you don't want to hang with the Biskit twins because they are little mean, but you are cool hanging out with this psychopath. I am kidding, Sue is not a psycho (except for some panels in the first comic, that is more of an artestic issue but that is another story), she is normal in every other episode but here she is boarderline crazy. I understand being stressed out about the track tryouts, but still control yourself. Blythe's friends they are not really main character (except for Youngmee later in the series) so it is not important that they do the right thing or learn a lesson, but some of their decession I have to question. First they are overly judgemental and pocessive in "Penny For Your Laughs", and here I don't want to say, Blythe get a restraining order. Anyway I talk more about this in my Youngmee Song character restrospective blog, so read that, I don't want to repeat myself. But I let you in on a bit of my non LPS interest, I am a big anime fan, and if there was some mature anime series I know of, Sue would be a villain that goes on a murder rampage. Or the least popular character in a harem. I am getting off base, just wanted to share with you a little bit of my non LPS interests. As for the song, it has a good tune, the lession of being yourself is cool, but the Sue lyrics are desterbing for a kids show.
Now as I teased before, I thought a great character moment by a couple of characters though minor I loved it. And that is the Biskit twins. They were acutally nice, you see it is just a foreign concept that they are in incapable of kindness. Heck in earlier episodes they in their own mind, tried to be nice and the execution was terrible and it came off as mean and insulting, first when they meet Blythe and asked her to go shopping, I thought that was a nice gesture and indent, and than their overthanking after Blythe helped against a bully, but here they were successful so good fo them. I hope we get to see more of that side of them in the future.
Overal, I think I will give this a 9 / 10, the good out weight the bad, mainly an awesome song, Russell was great, and the Biskits having an awesome moment in their own right, so that is enough for me to overlook stalker Sue and give it a 9 / 10.
Next week. Blythe meets a boy, hillarity insues. Till than.
