  • Oh my gosh oh my gosh that was awesomeness!!!!

    10
    Scene One- The gang finds Infinite Mountain. It starts to snow, but they find a hot spot of geysers, including a small fridge full of eggs. They use the hot geysers to cook food.



    Scene One Comments- What we call a filler scene but it developed how a worry-wart Joe is.



    Scene Two- Matt and Tai start to fight whether they should climb up the mountain to view the island. Joe joins the fight and they shrug it off for tomorrow. But Joe wants to climb up a mountain and does so, along with his Digimon.



    Scene Two Comments- It was an informative scene, and shows Joe's sense of humor.



    Scene Three- A bunch of black gear attacks a Unimon. Sora finds out that Joe went away to climb up the mountain. The Uimon goes wild and attacks Joe. But Birdramon comes to in time. Agumon then digivolves to Greymon and a Digifight starts. Joe jumps to get the black gear away from the Unimon, but the Unimon gets giddy and throws Joe away. His Digimon digivolves into a strong-looking one and drives away the Unimon. Then they see the whole island- a whole bunch of nothingness.



    Scene Three Comments- Oh my gosh that was awesome!!!! Brilliant! Everything in that scene was just so good!!!moreless
  • Well whatdid Joe get himself into.

    7.0
    This was a little bit funny. But it still was nothing but another filler episode. The kids are just starting off and they dont know where they are, how they get home, why they were sent to this really strange place, or who in the world should lead them. Though they never did figure that crap out even in the end. But the oldest person Joe, the geek, decided he wants to be the leader and get them out of there( like that would ever help). Joe did nothing but get himself caught in a bind and needed Gomamons help to get his sorry self out of it. Well he Digivolves into Ikkakumon and beats the crap out of the Digimon which I dont remeber which one it was.moreless
  • Joe is always looking out for other safety. Now, in order to protect everyone else he puts himself in danger.

    8.8
    Joe is humours in his own way, he once says "If your tootsies get frozen don't come crying to me." Joe is a very original and developing character as seen in this episode.

    Joe shows he has a sense of humor and says the word "tootsies"

    The music in the background when Unimon first appears in really calming, but that changes very quickly withthe black gear.

    Joe shows he is brave. He also puts the others before himself. He is always thinking of others safety and this episode is no exception. He is so selfless that he choses to risk his well being for the benefit of the group. Joe also jumps onto Unimon just to save him from the black gear.



    As a side note: Ikkakumon has really pretty blue eyesmoreless
  • Joe - a hero? Really?

    7.5
    This episode is pretty much focused on Joe. He feels that he can somehow help the group out. Later, he decides to climb this mountain. By this, I think Joe wants to prove he can stay committed to doing something before everyone else does. Unfortunately he later realises he cannot do this on his own. So, further help is brought along with the other kids realise he has gone up this mountain.



    It can be quite similar to some of the other previous episodes. There is another gear that needs to be pulled out of a Digimon. Well, this time Joe tries to do pull out the gear but finds it very difficult to do so. I am normally used to seeing a Joe who is too wimpy to do such a thing. However, this time Joe tries to prove he can do something and become the hero for a day.



    Overall, an okay episode. Some elements may have been seen before but still it is progressing.moreless
  • Joe and Gomamon makes an journey to the infinity moutain.But what is waiting for them up there? Is it Gomamon turn to digivolved?

    10
    It all start with an strange fridge even to find eggs.Even everyone telling what they liked on their eggs.But out of all the eggs topping Mimi was the gross one yet.It was funny that Joe and Gomamon were fighting with each other.I have to admitt for this episode.It seemed that Joe was the real leader here.Since he bravely thought to go alone to infinity moutain for the others sake.As he and Gomamon crosses up the moutain to encounter Unimon.Who eventually gets the black gear on his back.Tries attacked Joe and Gomamon when Tai,Sora,Biyomon and Agumon comes and help them.Amazing that Birdramon and Greymon could not defeat him.But with Gomamon new digivolved form Ikakumon he had defeated the black gear.As Biyomon said to Gomamon.



    "Uh Oh Gomamon embarassed!"moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

      Greymon: I'm stylin', dude!

    • TK: I wanna build an igloo!
      Palmon: I'll help... if you tell me what it is.
      Tentomon: An igloo sounds scrumptious to me!
      Izzy: Too bad they're not edible!

    • Joe: You know if the temperature drops any further than it has already we won't be able to camp out anymore, We'll be frozen Digi-Treats (Everyone laughs). That's right go ahead and laugh but when your tootsies freeze don't come crying to me, I'll just say I told you so.

    • Tai: Then I'll be the guinea pig, if I turn purple you're know they're not edible.
      Joe: There's more than that, even if they were edible they don't belong to us, that will make us all thieves, you gotta think stuff like that, Tai!

    • Sora: Cheer up! Tell me how you like your eggs and I'll try to do my very best.

      Mimi: What? You're both weird! My favorite is eggs topped in maple syrup! Yummy! Sometimes I like them with cherries on top!
      Sora: That's weird!
      T.K.: But I bet it's good.
      Joe: What? You are making me completely lose my appetite! I just like plain eggs. I wish we can talk about something other than egg recipes.
      Gomamon: Don't be so hard on yourself, they're just having fun.
      Matt: Come on, join the party!
      Tai: I think it's really too late for him, I think Joe's thinks we gone a little crazy over these eggs.
      Joe: Well really, jellybeans and cherries on eggs? That's just crazy talk! Salt and pepper is all they need. Keep it simple. That's always been my motto.

    • Unimon: (While controlled by the Black Gear) I'm in the mood for a game of... Aerial Attack!!

    • Joe: You're not going, so quit following me around!
      Gomamon: I'm not, you see I have some business to take care of up there. Everything doesn't revolve around you!
      Joe: Fine, then.
      Gomamon (saying quietly to himself): Sometimes, you just gotta trick 'em.

    • Tai: If it snows...we'll throw some snowballs!
      Mimi: And make snowmen!
