  • So far so good

    I'll admit that Season 2 is just as good as the first but in some of the episode you couldn't help but sense they might of been trying a little too hard sometimes and some jokes I thought were a little too nasty for their own good. However this episode is one of my personal favorates. Three of the highlights for me was seeing an Elementry School version of Indiana Jones which I thought was cute and hilarious. I just loved the injokes on his movies and I'll just say this is the way a lot of us would of loved to deal with bullies.



    Then there was a small skit based on an 80's superhero Rom (who litterally looks like a Cylon) fighting an idiot with a magnet. I wouldn't even call what they are doing a fight it was more like a stupid arguement. And that's what cracked me up how pointless the conflict really is and how

    simple and hard Rom made the sittuation where all he had to do was pull out his gun and kill the idiot. But of course Rom carelessless and witless got to close and the magnet guy got his gun and of course the stupid arguing continues.



    But I would say the best skit in this whole episode was Hogan's Heroes where we see all of the WWF characters with the actually voices of Hulk Hogan and Roudy Roddy Pipper which was great, in the old sitcom busting out of camp and then beating the crap out of Hitler and his cronies with their usual no holds barred wrestling and in the end they all settle the conflect with Hitler and the Nazi in the ring and well beat the crap out of them some more. Comic gold.moreless

    I loved the Rainbow Brite (never knew she was so crazy) and the Hogan's Hero's bit were the best, especially the Hogan's hero's with Clink, Schultz,Rowdy Roddy Piper, and of course Hulk Hogan. I loved that show and it was a great parody. This is really a type of show you can't really talk about you either get the references or you don't, it either pisses you off or makes you laugh. Last night it made me laugh. They should make this into a full half hour show, because it's that good. If they have the material I know it would be well watched by many.moreless

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • Metal Militia
      The title of this episode is taken directly from the well-recognized closing track Metal Militia on Metallica's 1983 debut album, Kill 'Em All.

    • "Snap into a Slim Jim!"

      When Iron Sheik points out the beef jerky Slim Jims, "Macho Man" Randy Savage is the first one to jump in on the Slim Jims. The line he says is a reference to the mid-90's Slim Jim commercials, which featured none other than the Macho Man himself, saying "Snap into a Slim Jim!" as the company's infamous slogan.

    • Young Indiana Jones
      The sketch featuring a young Indiana Jones is a parody of the film series and television series.

      While there was a television series called Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, the sketch imagines if Indiana were raised as a kid in the modern day. Parts of the sketch used elements from the films, such as escaping the rolling ball and running from the enemy, yelling for the driver to start the vehicle.

    • TRON Car Dealership
      The used car dealership sold two fictional vehicles from the 1982 Disney film, Tron. The first kid is sold the infamous "light cycle," while the second kid is sold the "Recognizer."

    • Hogan's Heroes
      Hogan's Heroes was a comedy television series of the late 1960's. The show starred five prisoners of war, set in the World War II era. The show's most memorable character would be the German's Sgt. Schulz and his portrayal of a stereotypical German soldier.

      The sketch is a parody, as it plays on the show's title and replaces the prisoners of war with professional wrestlers that were highly famous in the 1980's, including: Hulk Hogan, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, "Leaping" Lanny Poffo, Jimmy Hart, Sergeat Slaughter, "Mean" Gene Okerland, and The Iron Sheik.

    • Into the Blue
      Into the Blue is a 2005 film that starred Paul Walker and Jessica Alba. The sketch about the movie is a short parody of the movie's plot.

    • Rom Spaceknight
      The character Rom, Spaceknight was created as a toy sold to Parker Brothers. Marvel Comics cooperated and made a comic book based on the character from 1979 until 1986.

      The sketch is a parody of the character.

    • Rainbow Brite
      Rainbow Brite was an animated series that became better known for its successful toy marketing. Murky and Lurky, the two bad guys in the sketch, were the main nemeses of the series, which only lasted one season.

      The sketch is a parody of the animated series and takes a look at the darker side of Rainbow Brite.

    • Horton Hears a Jew!
      The title and sketch are a parody of the Dr. Seuess book, Horton Hears a Who!
      The book itself tells of Horton, an elephant, who hears the call of the Who's and agrees to protect them.

      The sketch has nothing to do with the actual Dr. Seuss story other than the similar title and characterization of Horton.
