    good episodes, both had their moments but neither was extraordinary or anything, so my grade is a B- or so, methinksmoreless
  • The first (but not last) Halloween episode and Nergal's second appearance.

    'Grim or Gregory?' might not be the most popular GABM Halloween episode, but it's still fun to watch. Grim gets switched with a little boy in a reaper costume while trick-or-treating with Billy and Mandy, and finds himself being pampered at home by the boy's mother. This is the highlight of the episode, as Grim embraces his 'mom' and actually sheds a tear or two.

    In 'Something Stupid This Way Comes' the demon Nergal once again tries to find some friends, this time through a carnival that sprouts out of the ground right in Billy and Mandy's neighborhood. Billy tries to teach Nergal "The Five C's of Friendship" but fails miserably and with terrible consequences. The demon decides that making people his friends by force was what he should have done all along, and turns everyone in Endsville into a monster just like himself.

    Two different but excellent installments, plus Billy, Mandy, and Grim look really good as demons.moreless
  • Okay

    Yet again, not... my... type!! Just... so boring. Pretty funny, but still boring. Grim or Gregory, personally, I thought it was really bad. Something Stupid this Way Comes was acutally pretty good. It had its funny times in it. I mean, Nergal, and the 4 Cs, presented by the one and only... Billy.
  • This episode had its moments.

    This episode had its moments, but it's not a classic. It's not as bad as Dumb Wish and some others, but it's not really great either and it gets boring very quickly. The funnier half was the latter, with Nergal learning about friendship via Billy.

    This episode is extremely average.
