After every season of ATHF, I declare "That's it." I am certain that Matt and Dave will have nowhere to go now, that they have used up every possible hilarious random event they could come up with, and the show will go stale. And every season, they continue to surprise me. I said they couldn't beat "Dumber Dolls" with alcoholic doll Happy Time Harry, and they came back with "Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past". I said they couldn't beat that, and they gave me Willie Nelson, the out-of-touch monster of "The Shaving". What could beat that? Try "Gee Whiz".
Don't think they got it right on just one episode, either. The dynamic writing duo nailed it all season. From the opener "Video Oujia", where Meatwad communicates with the dead through his Atari 2600, to "Carl", where the trio leaves town for spring break, and Carl goes all Castaway by talking with inanimate objects...until Rudy the housesitting robot blows him away for "attempted robbery". The first thing you'll notice about this season is the change-up in the opening. It looks like Dr. Wierd and Steve have left to make way for "Spacecataz", the hilarious ongoing conflict between the Mooninites and Plutonians. Speaking of Mooninites, the 2-dimensional tag team actually guest star in two episodes this season ("Remooned" and "Moon Master"), as opposed to the usual one. MC Pee Pants comes back (in a new body, of course) for "Little Brittle". But the best episodes are always the ones just having the guys dealing with problems that they usually wind up creating themselves. Take one of my favorites, "Unremarkable Voyage", where Frylock's shrink ray becomes Master Shake's favorite new toy. Words, however, cannot do any of these episodes justice. They have to be seen. Any remote fan of the show will thoroughly enjoy every minute of it.
