  • An episode near and dear to my heart, although a striking lack of Misery makes it a little sad. Probably my favourite, with a mix of cuteness, hilarity, and general absurdity that makes this show addictive.moreless

    The opening sketch/skit is of the two ghosts, Mr. White and Mr. White, preparing a pasta dish for Scaredy Bat called "Poltergeist Primavera ala Whites".



    The actual episode opens with Misery standing on the porch with everyone else. She's about to go travel to meet some of her many relatives, and it's storming. When she leaves, the storms leave with her and the sun comes out. None of them have ever seen the sun before, and they want to enjoy the experience. Frank and Len want to go swimming, and legitimately wear sunglasses, Poe is frying eggs on the stairs, Skull Boy is tanning (right, like that's going to work), while Ruby is just enjoying the sun. Quickly things turn to the worst and everyone escapes inside. They're not used to the sun exposure. The sun starts seeping in through the cracks, so they escape even further into the house to Misery's room.



    When they make it to her room, everyone's concern switches to whether the sun has gone away yet. Skull Boy decided to make a periscope, and figures his knowledge means he's related to a long line of action heroes. He starts the, very funny, action hero voice. By this point anyone paying attention to body language may notice Ruby...



    When Skull Boy sees the sun is still out, they muddle through a few possibilities why it may be out before connecting it to Misery. She takes a storm system with her wherever she goes. After this discovery the rest of the episode is about trying to get Misery home.



    There were two scenes that I especially loved. One was Skull Boy rescuing Mr. Buns in a fashion similar to Indiana Jones. The other was when Ruby thought she was doomed, in a cave's tunnel system, with Skull Boy and Iris. As such she tries to stutter out something very important to Skull Boy. Both scenes are the absolute epitome of the reason I love the show.



    One of the few fallbacks of this episode was, by the nature of the plot, Misery was only in the beginning and end. Another is that Skull Boy's periscope actually wouldn't work. He needed another mirror.



    My rating: 9.5 (Should've been a ten, but there was so little Misery, it was frustrating.)

    An eleven-year-old's rating: 5/5 (Be forewarned, I've trained him to tolerate sappy scenes. Other kids may not be so forgiving.)



    Poe's little "Sunlight Sphere" thing was done well, and is an excellent spoof of the Twilight Zone (he opens with "You are about to enter another dimension of the mind"), as well as a little follow-up to their fun in the sun.moreless
