  • Max is once again passes through the portal to meet Virgil. In this adventure, they encounter a giant squid and squidlike people led by one called Calamaris.

    No Skullmaster in this episode and plotwise this episode is merely filler but it sure was entertaining. Part of this episode is largely and undersea adventure with Max fighting against a giant squid and meeting squid like people.

    Max, Virgil and others meet the squidlike people and learn that the Giant Squid is threatening them. What I like about this cartoon is the action. THere's lot of nice scenes with the Giant Squid trying to crush the ship that Max is on. They stay alive using their heads and forming a bond with the creatures they meet. The episode has decent animation as did all the episodes and usual comic jokes. The character of Ali this crazy rich tycoon isn't an important character but serves as more comic relief serving as an example that being rich doesn't mean you're sane.

    In the end of the episode as customary of the series, Max explains the lessons and talks about what squids really are in real life.

    Anyways, Skullmaster or no Skullmaster a cool episode.
