It's also the fourth I've reviewed (see: Episodes 1x04, 1x05, and 2x02). So if I say that this is the funniest episode yet or that it has the cleverest puzzles?well, what if the guy who reviewed Episode 2x01 believes this one's puzzles can just go tie cinder blocks to their ankles and drown themselves in the Potomac? As the pieces of Sam & Max's second season fall into place, it occurs to me that reviewing a single episode is like reviewing the Water Temple in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess or the Blade's Edge Mountains zone in World of WarCraft: The Burning Crusade -- a B+ and a B, respectively! -- but what's the point?
But I am going to say that this is the funniest Sam & Max episode yet, and that it has the cleverest puzzles. And gosh darn it, I really believe that. But without the context, why should you?"
