    It's been nearly ten years since I first saw Reboot and this episode has been the one that I could always remember. The Mortal Kombat style was lost on me, but the User's character was still very scary. The shock of Enzo losing his eye stuck with me over the years very vividly.I could not believe that something like that could happen to my most beloved character. This episode certainly marked a turn in the tone of the show, from the relatively light tone in has in the first couple seasons to a more adult, darker one.



    This episode also shifts the focus from the plight of Mainframe to Enzo and AndrAIa's journies through the games and the other systems, which I found to be very interesting. This episode is certainly one of the highlights of the entire series.moreless
  • Saddening. We're fortunate Mainframe didn't end it here instead of "Crouching Binome, Hidden Virus"!

    "Enzo...no....NOOOOO!!!!"



    The saddening cry of Dot over Enzo will ring in your ears whenever you think of this episode, time and time again. Who knew Enzo would have a fate like this one? Then again, it's not surprising considering who he was up against.



    I, myself, wonder how the episode (and maybe even the series!) would've changed if AndrAIa and Frisket had to battle the User instead of Enzo.



    In my opinion, the episode would've been better if the title was changed. The title, basically, (somewhat) spoils most of the episode. People can tell that whoever enters the Game Cube, they will not succeed.



    Overall, though, this is a great episode and despite these minor discrepencies, it may cause a person tears or maybe even concerned at what happens (I know I was/did the first time I watched this episode). Remember this episode as one of the greatest in the series.moreless
