  • Inanity, thy name is Hamlet

    To be or not to be? I'd take not to be after watching the version of Hamlet Mike and the 'bots have to go through. Mike wins a game of three card monte to get the right to watch Hamlet, but Pearl digs up this West German version. With sets that look like a high school play and a general pall over the proceedings, it makes the 'bots think up their own versions. They settle on bongos after considering furniture or doing it underwater. The only misstep seems to be a game called 'Alas, Poor Who?' where Crow and Tom have to guess a person's identity using only a few bones. This seems to be in vain, since Hamlet was told of Yorick's identity by the gravedigger, so he didn't have to guess who he was. Other than that, another superlative episode in this, the final season(at least until the revival finally takes place).
