Pretty good episode, but the Nova corps always annoy me in this show. I know it was a misunderstanding, but still, they were quick to fire on the Guardians. And I knew Sam would pull a stunt like this.

While the portrayal of Thanos hasn't been great in the Marvel animated continuity, I do like that this episode finally showed off more of his manipulative side that we don't normally see outside the comics. They should have gagged him.

But heh, Peter forcing Thanos to listen to jazz. Only he would dare.

That space battle at the beginng was so dull and went on for so long.
When Peter said they weren't Yondu's Ravagers, I was kinda hoping they were gonna use the episode to explore the Ravager hierarchy some more, maybe learn something about the other Ravager clans that Stakar mentioned in the second movie. Sadly nothing came of that.

Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Mission Break-Out! "I Fought The Law"

Does Sam have the word "sucker" tattooed on his forehead or what? There is no other rational explanation as to why he's trusted and freed two separate supervillains.

As far as I'm concerned, whatever the Nova Corp eventually winds up doing to him won't be enough. And yes, I'm good with execution for that. This is not his first offense.

The parasite looked freaky on Thanos' head.

I laughed after Groot says "I am Groot!" Rocket warns him not to say anything. That's a actually a concern for him. Noted. Moving on.

I like the notion that the Ravagers kept attacking after Thanos escaped because living witnesses could report them for attacking a Nova Corp ship. I love that the show gave a plausible explanation to keep the peril going. Heck, it's not even just plausible, after hearing Gamora say it like that, it actually makes sense.

Bad things? I think this series is defanging Thanos far too much with Infinity War just around the corner. Thanos is not a villain like Loki that can be used equally well in comical and serious settings. Seeing him wearing headphones while being forced to listen to smooth jazz makes him lose a ton of credibility in the era of pop culture where he needs to be building it up instead. I think it's a mistake to say the Guardians can take on Thanos alone and win. Because what's the point of the entire movie then?

But I liked everything else. ***1/2.

I can give them a little leeway on this. We're still early in the season. They still have time to develop that.
