  • Bugs is great!

    I like the seriousness but yet warm-heartedness found in Bugs. I like his dialogue with Niles too. I think he and Niles make a great team in the morgue! He is also good at being a smart allec. Ravi\'s character\'s knowledge of insects and soil is amazing! I guess that\'s why they call him Bugs lol
