  • Finally got to watch it, and it did not disappoint

    It's been a long time since I've seen a season 1 episode, and it clearly helps appreciate the change for season 2. Tasumi, who we know currently in the series is not who she says she is, changes her armor color to blue to go trick-or-treating as her "brother." Dick tries to make mummies by wrapping all the lawn ornaments in toilet paper. C.A.R. makes even more bitingly sarcastic remarks. Todd and Riley try to have their neighbors replaced (just the one house, not the whole neighborhood as I previously thought) because they never decorate or give out candy for Halloween, and Buzz's side of the street always wins the decoration contest. But what I don't understand is why knocking over the cauldron, which ended up doing nothing, earned Buzz the trophy back. In the end it was all a big production put on by Conrad and two special effects experts in conjunction with the neighbors. The funniest part was Tasumi's costume creaking frrom rust, which wouldn't have happened if Riley hadn't drooled a flood while obsessing over candy. And of course I loved the end where C.A.R. wasn't in on the whole plan and barricaded himself in the garage with all his weapons drawn. "It's a party - join us!" "Never!!" :P
