Sealab 2021: Favourate Episodes of Each Season
Rather than relentlessly bash Sealab as usual, let's see if you guys have the balls (Hazel Murphy voice ) to actually think of the best episodes from each season just to give it a fair shake.
1. Legend of Baggy Pants: Murphy's journey through Pod Six, every line that came out of his mouth, his nefarious confrontations with Even...Eggers, Monster Heshs' "departure", his phone conversations etc, pure gold.
2. Bizzaro: A little mixed in opinions here, but the majority of Sealab fans I've spoken to embrace this episode as being a classic.
3. 7211: Yeah, I know the posse of "Letz Bashz Sealabz" bandwagon jumpers (Whom I'm henceforce labelling as "Pod Six") like to urinate all over the premise, existence, and execution of "Concept" episodes , but as I stated in another thread, this was art imitating another decor, it was intriguing to see a more rational side of the characters, besides, I found Sealab 2020 a decent show itself, hence why I liked this episode eve
n more because of how faifthul and respectful it was to a show that even the very writers and Cartoon Network deemed "boring", pfft...yes, the same people who air bollocks like Atomic Betty, go figure...
5. Feast of Alvis: This episode proved that the writers were clearly more inspired with Murphy more than a great deal of the other cast by this point, and it'd become clear in Season Three they were so busy giving Murphy good episodes, or material in bad episodes, to work with that they completly lost perspective on the other characters, preferring to reduce Debbit to a sex driven hussy, Quinn into a quasi-pimp, and ignoring Stormy, Marco, and Sparks almost completly during this season (Sparks got some small highlights though, particulary with "Stimutacts")
1. Red Dawn: Some great and apporitaly delightful parodies of Orwell novella, communism, Doctor Strangelove...most of is saved by Murphy and Quinn, but compared to a great deal of other third season episodes where were sustained sufficently only by the intervention of the dying Harry Goz, you don't get closer to Season Two than this one.
2. Fusebox: Never really know what Pod Six has against this gem...the voiceovers did'nt restrict my attention, and the Wally Gator reference and on-screen cameo later fit the humour quite well.
3. Tornado Shanks: Not even half as bad as Pod Six made it out to be, easily Shanks' greatest episode (which is not saying that much provided he does heavily blow as a character
1. Moby Sick: The closest I got to watching Season Two Sealab, still a sign of an actual budget, but the humour, lack of Sharko, "F-Yeah", and Sparks "Non-apperance" made it better than every episode after "Tornado Shanks", (and admitedly, some before it)
2. Legacy of Laughter: Aside from Heshs' minimal contributions, and Sparks stealing the show with his demand for further lines, the show seemed determined to admit it sucked in a positive light, thier comparison to Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and paying tribute to someone who made the series what it was and could'nt hope to sustain itself without him, at least gave it some measure of dignity as it concluded
