  • Just plain stupid!

    Buster the Myth Maker was a good episode. I\\\'m referring to \\\"DW Beats All\\\". Usually Arthur stays within the realms of realistic, but not anymore. With the recent addition of \\\"Pal and Kate talking\\\" episodes, the show has gotten worse. This episode just adds to the pile of crap episodes. This episode is so unrealistic. I mean, come on! DW making a music machine from scratch? I think I saw something like this on Malcolm in the Middle. It\\\'s been done! And it\\\'s beyond unrealistic. A 4-year-old can\\\'t build a machine like that!
  • DW is preparing for a concert. Buster believes all of the things he hears online.

    DW sees the Tibble twins drumming to practice for a concert. It makes her want to try and something of the same. She creates her own "musical instrument" and plays it at the concert. Everyone is delighted. There was a s\huge applause following her performance. Everyone enjoyed her performance over the Tibble twins. Buster finds out on the internet some things about healthy and unhealthy foods.He learns about "gross foods" foods that are good for you. Buster starts to believe everything that he sees online. He starts to take the information a little too literal. Overall, the episodes are good and are things/events typical people of that age would do.
  • D.W. is a hit at the concert! Buster believes everything he reads online.

    In D.W. beats all the Tibbles both get drum sets. Arthur and his friends and the Tibbles play at the summer concert. The Tibbles tell her that she can't play real music without instruments. So she decides to make her own instruments. She plays at the summer concert and is a hit!

    In Buster the Myth Maker Buster tells Arthur about all the different things he's read about different food on the internet. He tells Arthur about all the gross things that are in the food. Then they read an article about two tigers being mistakenly shipped to Elwood City and living in the park. There is also this mystery of dogs missing in that park. They go to the park and the find this man setting a trap. The Brain confesses to them that he posted the story about the tigers on the website. They go back to the park and find out that the man setting the trap was really the dognapper.

    D.W. beats all was so-so. I liked the way the show focused on performance art. Buster the Myth Maker is one of my favorites. Him reading about all those secret ingredients on websites sounds like some dumb thing I would do.
