"Ass Got Breezy Being Green" - You know when realizing that this was going to be a frog catching skit I felt kind of meh to the idea, but it actually turned out to be pretty funny. Probably due to the lines they were able to squeeze out: Shin bothering Mitzy and getting Boo to dance with him, George and Penny being against the idea of catching frogs just so they could let them go, the gilligan island theme song they sang (though the whole "three hour tour" line kind of reminded me of when Lupin the Third's dub did that joke as well. Guess Shin's not the only old dub to stick in old refrences as jokes the japanese wouldn't really get too much), Boo's frog catching methods, Shin letting the big frog go to get plenty of action from lady frogs, Georgie whinning about his future career when Shin start wagging his ass in front of his face (though yeah ass jokes are really getting old. Not assy Mcgee old but still not too good), the bullies wanting to stick firecrackers into the frog and let them on fire to Limp Bizkit songs and Shin scaring them away. At the very least this one took what could of been a more meh idea and gave some good moments to enjoy.
"Summer Baby" - Oh yeah, I did hear that some of the neighbors from the apartment arc would actually return on the show, so I guess this was Summer and Paris's return to Shin chan. In truth Paris is funnier when she's just randomly shouting everything's ghetto then taking out mole spots or being called a dwarf and things like that. And in truth the whole incredibley crappy Paris Hilton esque mother jokes really shouldn't be used too much so hopefully there won't be too many more sketches like this unless they switch up the material. A few bright spots: Shin's comments on his duck dong, Mitzi being happy to not be living in the apartment when they're apartment neighbors come in (kind of an overdone joke sure but I found it funny here), Shin over abusing Paris's greeting phrase, and Mitzy getting high at the end. Relaly next time though I hope they go somewhere else with these neighbors. And if they don't I hope they go away and don't show up in the dub of this show again.
"Fear The Money Shot" - Probably the best segment on this ep though not as good as some of the other Bastard episodes. Still I did like the plot of this one: The Evil Hitlerclone actually coming up with a good plan on having Bastard go into his lair and waste all his energy on his generic henchmen and then blow him up when he was back to being Bruce. Yeah I'm sure Bastard's alive but still pretty good thinking on Hitlerclone's end. In addition to that there were some pretty good jokes: Asking how he could have those holograms up all at once, the doctor mastering in perpotorous speculation, Bastard leaving because it's heroes code to kick ass and not get help from your friends, Lollypop saying the docotr could of been thinking of her when he mentioned how he could of not seen the obvious flaw and the ending narration and Mitzi's line about not dedicating everything to just watching TV. True advice, but don't say that when you're just a cartoon character okay?
Overall not really the best episode (espically due to the sagging middle segment and weakest bastard yet) but okay anyway. Hope there's more bastard segments to watch in coming weeks though since the storyline should defintley continue on.
