  • Good kats turned bad.

    This is definitely a good episode. Just imagine, the Swat Kats on the wrong side of the law and to top it all off allies with the Dark Kat.

    Sure, the "alternate reality where the good guys are bad" story line has been (over)used for some years now, but this episode has something that makes it special. I just loved watching the Dark Swat Kats argue all the time (as opposed to the regular Swat Kats who work as a team), and the great fight scenes between the characters. One thing I would have liked to see was the Dark Kat turning good (after all, this was an alternate reality). It would have been a nice twist. But the episode was good enough even without that.
  • The SWAT Kats get zapped into an alternate dimesion, where THEY are the bad guys.

    Come on. This was a great episode. Sure, the old evil version things isn't new. But the SK counterparts were so completely opposite from the originals, that you just enjoyed watching them argue as they went about their dirty work. In contrast, the originals worked together as a team. Funny that Dark Kat was still evil, considering this was an alternate dimesion. You'd think Feral would be the evil one, would've been really cool though. Imagine when the originals were first locked up, to have them come face to face with the one they loathe, only to have him spring them from prison.

    But still a really great episode.

    Loved it.
  • The Swat Kats are stucked in an alternate dimension in which the SK are the most dangerous criminals of them all!

    This is a preety basic storyline for every cartoon of this type. But the great thing about this show was that it may start with 100 times seen before cliche ,but it will end totally unpredictable. The excuse itself for Swat Kats being transported into another dimension is preety ridiculous ,but beside that ,the plotline is exciting enough. The Dark Swat Kats are great villains ,and their charateristics are preety nicely described ,cause wherever good Razor and T-Bone are agree and depend on each other ,the Dark SK are arguing and fighting. That is preety nice way to describe the relationship between the SK. I don't think the Dark SK are actually died at the end of the episode. They ended safely enough to have a decent excuse to appear in the third season ,if it was a 3rd season. All in all ,great and memorable episode.
