  • Um...

    This was definitely a bad episode. It was incredibly boring. Cheesy, but not in the enjoyable way of the first episodes. Just really cheesy and lame. Micki and Ryan weren't funny like they usual are, although it wasn't for lack of effort. The episode is about a lowlife college student who doesn't have any luck with the ladies, except when he uses a statue of Cupid that makes women fall in love with him. However, after he gets a girl's affection, he is compelled to murder them. Sure, it's a ridiculous premise. But the whole series is based around a ridiculous premise and I can't watch it just fine. This episode, however, was just plain boring and not fun to watch. I kept looking at the clock hoping that the episode would be over soon.

  • Definitely a low point for this series....

    This episode, for me, was not the greatest episode in this series and, in fact, was one of the weakest installments of the series. The cursed item, a statue of Cupid, causes women to fall in love with its owner though later the owner is compelled to do away with the enthralled women. The latter was particularly as, at one point, a woman is killed by being locked in the front seat of a truck with a bunch of angry bees(!).

    When you watch an episode, you expect to see a certain logic that becomes apparent as the episode proceeds. However, this episode seems to have been written with a scattershot style with scenes linked together by the weakest of reasons.

    An episode that is best forgotten by most fans of this series.moreless
