  • So...what was wrong with the old Ron?

    Concluding that she knows what's best for Ron, "even if he doesn't", Kim arranges for him to receive a haircut from renowned French hairstylist Francois. The new 'do earns Ron instant popularity and an inflated ego, while Dr. Frankenkim laments about what's become of her best friend (or, more correctly, what she was a willing accessory to).

    Meanwhile, the electricity in Europe is being sapped away in great quantities. The answer lies on a private island occupied by bored multi-billionaire Senor Senior Senior and his son, Senor Senior Junior. Kim asks the old man to cut the power. He obliges, but not before Ron makes a number of bone-headed comments about how the Senior home would make an awesome villain's lair.

    It's not before long that the blackouts resume in Europe. It's the same situation as before, but wait - Senor Senior Senior is taking the power intentionally. He took Ron's suggestions to heart and (having nothing better to do) decides to become a villain. (Don't you just hate when that happens?)

    As you can probably imagine, Kim and Ron aren't exactly at their best, here. However, the climactic fight between Ron and Junior was funny, and the casting of Senior should be a treat for fans of "Wrath of Khan" or "Freakazoid!"

    This episode proves that change isn't always for the best.
