Episode Summary

EDIT
The High She-as / A Match Not Made in Heaven
AIRED:
The High She-as: Yin and Yang are out fishing when all of a sudden, a group of woman pirates come upon our hero's. They act really nice towards Yin, but not so much towards Yang. Are these pirates all they appear to be, or is there something else about them?

A Match Not Made In Heaven: Carl really wants to use his mother's destructive jewelry for his own nefarious purposes (especially since She never wears them) but his mother, Edna won't let him. Meanwhile, Yang pulls a practical joke on Master Yo by posting his bio on a website for an old people dating service, and Master Yo's blind date turns out to be Edna! Can Yin & Yang break up this relationship that's not meant to be before Carl can take full advantage of his mother's absence to commit his evil?moreless

  • Both of these episodes were solid in terms of quality; I believe that they were both entertaining to watch and I encourage people to check them out, even though they could have been better.moreless

    I love Yin Yang Yo!, but I have to say that I'm getting rather tired of the "girls are better than boys / boys are better than girls" mindset that Yin and Yang have. I know that I have complained about this in previous reviews, but there are many episodes that I haven't seen and each time this issue comes up, I can't help but feel a sense of disappointment. The whole opening scene with Yin and Yang attacking one another's gender just wasn't necessary, though it was cute seeing Yin care about the worm's life. Regardless, "The High She-as" wasn't a bad episode, despite what I've said, as at least the sexist overtones made some degree of sense. Since Saranoia was this episode's villain, and she is an intentionally sexist character, I believe the writers were likely trying to set the tone for the episode. I enjoyed her role in this episode, though I liked G-P's, role more, as even though he can be annoying if he talks too much, I felt that he had the perfect amount of dialogue in this episode. All in all, this episode really could have been better, but despite my initial sense of disappointment, it was truly a great episode and I encourage people to check it out.



    "A Match Not Made In Heaven" was the better of the two episodes. I don't say that much about Master Yo, for good reason, but he looked downright adorable when he was crying. I know that he's supposed to be an intentionally grumpy and unlikable character, but this episode really humanized him and I really respect that fact. Regardless, I primarily enjoyed this episode because it showed Yin and Yang how much they needed Master Yo. Even though they had already knew some of their powers, their skills began to diminish as they lost focus, since Master Yo wasn't around to help them train and push them in the right direction. This episode had plenty of other great moments as well. I liked the fact that Edna had a great role in this episode, as even though she is the mother of two of the series' villains, she seldom gets a large role and episodes like this prove that she can be an interesting character. There was also a cute scene when Yang rescued his sister and caught her in his arms, which is something that I've enjoyed because I prefer episodes where the two of them actually care about one another. All in all, this was a great episode and it shouldn't be missed; it may not have played a pivotal part in this series' overall story arc, but it was still very entertaining.moreless
  • The High She-as: Another attempt by Saranoia to destroy Yang and get Yin to join her. And there's pirates! Awesome! A Match Not Made In Heaven: Thanks to Carl, Master Yo is in love with his mother! This can't end well...moreless

    The High She-as: As with many Yin Yang Yo episodes, there is a "this gender is better than that gender" theme. I'd like this show a lot better if they toned down a lot of the dumb boy/dumb girl insults (though I know it's central to Saranoia escapades). The one thing that makes it tolerable is the fact that Yin and Yang are at the age when they find the opposite sex repulsive (for the most part). If they'd save the sexism issues for Saranoia and/or Ultimoose episodes like this, then I'd be much happier.



    A Match Not Made In Heaven: A Carl-centric episode, yay! *fangirls* Ahem... This is what saved this particular episode from a lower score. And it's NOT because I heart Carl! It's because this is a good episode! Carl, deviating from his "blot out the suns" scheme, decides to create an army of mutants to take over the town using the Earring of Evolutional Dominance, which allows him to combine different creatures. All in all, this is definitely this episodes's saving grace.moreless
  • Carl never seems to have good luck, ever! :D

    Poor Carl, he's so out of his league trying to take out the Woo Foo Warriors it shouldn't even be funny but it is! If it weren't for the fact Carl can actually pose a threat when the need arises, his whole character would be nothing but a joke! First off, Yin & Yang learn it doesn't matter if the villains they fight against are male or female, both can still be inconsiderate jerks! Then Edna has the most destructive jewelry this side of Kingdom Come, and Carl isn't allowed to touch it! Meanwhile, Yang's making Master Yo the butt of his every joke by saying how old he thinks his Master is, and having Coop and the Tree Stump Kid laugh at each of those jokes! So imagine Yang's surprise when his joke bio of Master Yo's single dating service inquiry actually gets a response, and the hopeful woman turns out to be Edna, mother of the evil Carl! Yin & Yang are trying their best to learn new moves, but without Master Yo's guidance, they can't nail them! Of course, Carl's plans as always are for naught as the Woo Foo Warriors find a way to sabotage Carl's plans by getting him into big trouble with his mother! Carl's like the Wily E. Coyote of the "Yin Yang Yo" world, no matter what hare-brained scheme he hatches to try to conquer the world, it's always destined to fail! That's what makes Carl such a great tragic villain! :Dmoreless
