  • Holy crap, this episode SUCKS!!!!!

    1.0
    Instead of writing a creative script using creative dialogue, they wrote this piece of **** along with other trian wrecks as Let Em Eat Corn, Dearly Beloved Seed [although the original was funny], and the epiphany of awfulness, ASHDTV.



    Lazy sight gags, overdone violence, overuse of bleeps, staplers in people\'s eyes and Debbie screaming 5 times. Everything that Sealab isn\'t supposed to use, proving that the writers were reeking of desperation during Season 4.



    Sealab Season 4 is by far the worst season of the show and probably all of TV. Season 5 is a little better, but it also had some bad shows as well.

    • Virjay: I hope you all blow out your collective flip-flops and step on pop-tops.

    • Stormy: Pie chart
      The pie chart Stormy has which shows has a pie from the future can not exist in the past has three items: a pie, a wormhole and the flux capacitor which made time travel possible in the movie, Back to the Future

    • na: na
      A spoof of the Graphic Novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill in which characters from classic literature fight evil.

    • Teamwork Video: Red Swingline Stapler
      Ahh, the Swingline Red Stapler. Sleek nad elegant. Actually, it's one of Swinline's "classic" looking models (with a reto look to it).

      In the movie "Office Space," there is a red Swingline stapler that keeps appearing. In a side story in the movie, an obnoxious boss steals it from a poor quiet employee, and as a result the employee tries to get it back. This all culminates to a funny ending to the movie.

      In this episode of Sealab, the stapler is used as a running gag throughout the episode, constantly being stabbed into someone's eye. The "teamwork video," which makes little sense, even sort of parodies the movie "Office Space" with 2 hapless coworkers chatting, and one of them sabbing him in the eye for borrowing it without asking.

      An interesting fact, Swingline never made a red stapler like the one shown in the movie "Office Space," it was in fact painted red by the props crew to make it stand out more. The movie, being an icon to all cubicle-dwelling workers, became a big cult hit. As a result, Swingline started getting tons and tons of phonecalls asking if they could sell or supply them. Some online stores even started painting them red themselves and selling them on the 'net. Finally, Swingline saw the light and released an official "Red Swingline Stapler."

    • tree cobra: I was once a man!
