Awesome as always
22 August 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This is now one of my favorite episodes, but it's very hard to create an episode that I didn't like. I really was impressed by how the last sketch after the movie and how it went on so well. It really was interesting to see Joel try to actively escape from the Satellite of Love. I don't think he ever tried that in the actual show before. He wasn't as interested in doing that as Mike was. It was great to see them interact with TV's Frank and that actually was a pretty good opening with the voices in the invention exchange.

The riffing started off a bit slow, but certainly got better. I think the one part that really made me laugh was when the baby was making the crying sounds causing the riff, "Ooh, I love baby calls". It was also great when it showed the baby in the crib with them saying, "Now, I'm getting out of here, see?". It's weird to hear them say, "As Isis, the goddess of love". Now we know Isis by another name. I also loved, "And nobody has to know about this. Not the police. Not the people" followed by, "And most of all, not the audience". ****
