To me: GPC’s brief stint in the theater is so adorable. She certainly tried her best and did manage to get in a really funny riff!

As for the episode in general: It’s not bad. It’s easily the most chopped-up of the Herc movies featured, so it can get really difficult to understand at times. But those great, colorful production values are still there. Joel and The Bots are reliable because the movie is always throwing something in their direction.

This is a solid episode in a great season!

“Hey, get this! They’re steam cleaning the horses!”

Always gets a laugh out of me! And I just love how Joel and The Bots give GPC props for getting that one to connect. :smiley:

I smiled so hard on that. Not just a great joke but it reflected her personality and sensibility. I could buy that coming out of her and that made it all the funnier.
