Today's episode was good, better than I expected it to be.

"Molina's Mulligan" turned out to be rather relatable: the way Mr. Molina was always so enthusiastic and proud over everything Alberto got himself involved in reminds me a lot of my mom, she's the same way, she often times will bring me up in a conversation for the sake of talking about me, "Oh, by the way, my son runs his own production company, he's a puppeteer, you should look at his work, he's on YouTube!" while I do all I can to keep my eyes from rolling, because nobody cares, lol. One thing I couldn't help but notice was that it would seem both Mr. Molina and Alberto have new voices; Alberto's new voice sounds almost identical to his original voice, but just a little more wooden, while Mr. Molina's voice sounds a tad deeper than usual, and a little heavier on the accent. But it was a good entry, like I said, very relatable, I enjoyed it.

"Buster Bombs" was great. Stories that focus on Buster seem to always be good, and it was actually fun to see how desperate he grew in trying to stay funny, and the more he tried and the more desperate he grew, the more pathetic he became... I actually couldn't help but chuckle at how he was covered in almost every kind of pie filling you could imagine by the time he was finished with that "experiment" (I kind of wish I knew what it was like for a pie in the face to actually be funny like it was in the olden days of comedy). Vince Ruckles didn't seem to be too much of a ringer of Don Rickles, but at least he left Buster with some pearls of wisdom that came in handy: Buster really did genuinely stop trying to be funny, and he became his naturally funny self again (though at the same time, the fact that Mrs. MacGrady and the others were still expecting him to try to be funny kind of defeated the purpose just a tad).

The "Which Arthur character are you?" segment made a little more sense today, but I still think it would be a good idea if the segment was actually interactive, like say, offer a choice of three different characters, ask a few multiple choice questions, and if they answered mostly As, they're one character, mostly Bs another, mostly Cs another... but, that's just me.
