  • Tired of being a wimp, Dipper wants to be a real man and meets a manotaur who can help

    8.5
    It's not my favorite plot since it's weak, but it's alright. Both plots. It's a bit underrated to be honest. Aside the fact that the episode has lack of humor in some scenes and interesting scenes, I didn't liked Mabel and Stan making fun of Dipper's lack of manliness. Not being manliness is no laughing matter for guys. This is why I want guys acting manly while girls all feminine and that's just my opinion. I laughed at Mabel and Dipper whining they're hungry, Stan, Mabel, and Dipper runs off from the customer, Sheriff eating the pancakes quickly, Dipper listening to girly music, Dipper showing Mabel and Stan his chest hair, Dipper's girly (and then manly) scream, Soos as Lazy Susan, pain hole scene, Stan's smile scaring Soos, one of the bears listening Baba (the girly artist), and the credit scene. Dipper battling the bears was very awesome, but sadly it got ruined the fact that Dipper refuses to kill some weird looking bear. Overall, this was a great episode, but I'm not a fan of the story in both plots.

    Score: 8.5/10moreless
  • Will Dipper be able to win over manliness or will manly stuff get the best of him?

    Dipper gets tired of being a wimp. When he runs into the forest, he finds this Man-ataur (Half Man/Half Taur). The creature is able to help by giving Dipper challenges to prove what Dipper has what it takes to become a man. Meanwhile, Mabel helps her good ol' Grunkle Stan on becoming a gentleman for Stan's love interest, Lazy Susan, a waitress at their local diner. I won't spoil the rest.



    I love this episode. Both plotlines were good. My favorite part was when the Man-ataur first introduced himself with his "Half Man ...(short pause)... Half Taur!" Definitely the best part was the moral at the end (which I won't spoil!).



    Overall, a good episode for this show.
