  • Fun, funny, and even a little sexy!

    With a nod to the movie 'Fantastic Voyage', Megabyte's henchmen, along with a newcomer - - sexy, female, sprite named 'Mouse' - - are shrunk and accidentally put inside Enzo's brain. Of course, Bob saves the day, but not before we witness the comic and potentially dangerous affects to Enzo due to the villain's thwarted plan.



    Although I enjoyed the episode, I had a few "problems" with it:



    1) Bob doesn't know that Enzo is heading to the core, because Mouse's stasis field prevented him from hearing her conversation with Megabyte about it. Yet, when she releases him from the stasis field, he is surprised to see her, which proves that he had no idea what was going on while he was in stasis. Furthermore, when Mouse asks Megabyte about the core, Megabyte says, "Who do you believe, Bob or me?", how would Megabyte have known that it was Bob who told her about (again, he couldn't have known!).



    2) Why would Enzo's handprint open the door to the core? Shouldn't it be limited to Phong, Dot, and Bob? Why would they allow a child, much less anyone else, access to it?



    3) What would putting Enzo into the core have accomplished for Megabyte? Since the radiation levels were reaching dangerous levels, wouldn't it have killed Enzo and the shrunken ship's occupants? Imagine the Star Wars scene when Darth Vader hurls the evil emperor down the Death Star's core (or whatever it was). How would that have destroyed Mainframe, as Phong implied when he said, "Mainframe is doomed"?



    Despite the above, the episode was typical 'ReBoot' fun and fantasy! Enjoy!moreless
