I ended up missing the beginning of "Opposites Distract" and the end of "Just the Ticket", so I'm afraid I can't really invest a whole lot of into the entire episode, but based on what I have seen, while both entries were enjoyable, as predicted, they were both rather cliched. As far as "Opposites Distract" go, I did like the whole reference/shout out to THE ODD COUPLE (and I guess they intended this episode to air yesterday, because the announcer in the Imagine Spot said Arthur left his house on November 13, which was yesterday), and I love D.W.'s little Bond villain/Dr. Evil thing she had going on when Buster came to see her (but what was with the whole, "MOM! BUSTER'S LOOKING AT ME!" thing?) "Just the Ticket" was just as I predicted it, because... well, the story's been done before. I knew all of Arthur's friends were basically going to badger him into picking them to go to the concert with him, and I kind of figured he would try to look for ways to get rid of the tickets to get himself out of the situation.

Still not used to Sue Ellen's new voice (this time, she sounded like Francine wearing jock straps too tight), and Francine and Muffy's eyes being too close together.
I stretch like a snake, and I shimmy and shake, and I bounce like a ball, and I say something cute when you give me a squeeze!
