No matter, Darkwing is off to see Disney about a contract.moreless

    This is the best written episode i have seen so far. I know the plot sounds kinda boring, but things are definitely starting to happen when it gets going. After the episode title we are instantly thrown into a comic book scenario where Megavolt hunts down Darkwing in a dark alley. The story is filled with clever twists and turns that keep you interested. It's not a very exciting episode, though. As there's no real danger. It all happens in the comic book. But the comedy outweights the lack of exciting scenes. I think some of the voters that voted for this and "Cleanliness is Next to Badliness" hate or dislike the animation. I think it has great animation, with some strange exceptions ofcourse. Like when Darkwing is tied up with the cord, look at that face, horrible stuff indeed. But the animation is much better than, say in: "Dry Hard" and "Water Way to Go". A great episode that's cleverly written. Did i mention Megavolt's in it? A reason good enough alone to watch the episode.moreless
