In any case, "Video Ouija" continues ATHF's winning streak. The show has done better, but this was solid stuff. The Billy Witch-Doctor bits were wird but even tring to get them all to say, "I am so ****ing retarded," made me laugh all the same. The segments within Video Ouiji itself were awkward hilarity and Shake's method suicide was so great that I want to try it!
Good stuff, but given the standards, an average episode for this show, *** out of *****
I wonder if the Spacecatazz intro was their way of hinting that the series won't happen. Or perhaps as a new alternate to the Dr. Weird openings. A little diversity in opening segments would be an interesting change.
I personally think they should of shyed away from Billy The Chicken Witch Doctor after a minute and found other ways to try to revive Shake. Other wise, I have nothing bad to say about this episode. Typcial ATHF goodness.
Funny beginning, but the appearance of the witch doctor was "sofa king wee todded" it belonged in a Sealab 2021 episode. Plus the ending felt like "we're trying too hard for the random "WTF" moment at the end."
But it rocked out with the "Spacecataz" stuff and the Video Ouija stuff, because 2600 Shake kicks ass. Really. Actual ass. B+
I love Dr. Weird, never found the plutonians that funny and the moonenites just got old for me, so I hope spacecataz isn't forever the new opening.
Billy and the "sofa king" bit was pretty funny/surprising, but I, too, expected them to make more than just one attempt at raising him. Ending came a little *too* suddenly (even by their usual standards).
I think the coolest part of the ep was shake's brief little fantasy of him emerging from the TV (pretty creepy looking, for a milkshake) with a sword and that poltergeist-esque living portal.
the X ai chatbot Grok was actually named after Dorkus Aurelius' catchphrase "Oh Grok!", whenever his plans go south. This is due to Elon Musk being a huge Planet Sheen fan (which is also what inspired his plans for space travel and housing).
