    grim vs mom- billy's mom, Gladys, returns, and she fights Grim. She seemingly wins, but as the episode ends, Grim proclaims "She may have won the battle, but she will not win the war."

    Tastes Like Chicken- When Billy can't find anyone, he is led to believe that Mandy is a cannibal and she ate everyone. Is this true or is there another, more reasonable, logical explanation?

    Grim vs Mom was funny, tastes like chicken had an interesting plot, and i think both episodes were really good and well-written, and so my grade for both of these is an A+. Perfectmoreless

This episode is my favorie but, I do rememer another episode making this a 3 episode. Another thing why I like this episode is because Mandy's not a spoiled brat during the first seasonmoreless
  • The long-awaited showdown...

    In Grim vs. Mom we get to see the epic battle between the Grim Reaper and Billy's mom, who Mandy rightfully suggests is still a psychotic mess. Believe it or not, it's actually a surprisingly one-sided fight. This episode has some good moments--Grim's "Ask not for whom the bell tolls" speech in particular, though there are some more unusual and interesting scenes, like Billy, Mandy, and Grim all sleeping in the same bed together at Billy's house. Tastes Like Chicken ain't half bad either, and is one of the first episodes to display the darker side of Mandy's character (which was pretty dark to begin with).

    This episode has plenty of the elements needed to be long-lasting in the minds of GABM fans.moreless
  • Not the best

    Two not so good episodes, along with not so bad episodes. I kind of... how would I say this, thought it was pretty boring, though. I mean, Grim vs Mom, the story just wasn't very powerful. Tastes Like Chicken was ok, but, I think that they could've done a better job.
