We've already got Buster.  One Drugs Bunny is enough for the show.

But, Subway doesn't even serve mac n'cheese!  :-[
Especially not out of a teapot. 

Though I have to admit, the Subway Guy does look suspiciously similar to Carl with his low-set glasses and huge forehead.

But Captain Rufus Tucker Compson still has three promotions to go before being a Colonel. 
I just don't think he's qualified to command that sort of brigade at this point in his military career.

To get back onto the topic of the actual EPISODES, has anyone seen 'Brain Freeze' on YouTube? It's pretty good.
With New Muffy's Cookie Castles opening every day, Muffy's is more famous than a donut!

Yeah, I've saw that episode. I thought it was pretty good although I still don't know the name of Brain's ice cream shop. The shop usually has ICE CREAM on the front of it but that really isn't a very good name for a shop.
Kinda tastes like chicken

Ah, now that some new episodes are available...

-It was good to see Marina again, albeit briefly. 
-Likewise, it was kinda neat to see Katherine and Chip together on a date in Yumbobo...but alas, it's just in Brain's thoughts. 
-Muffy really does seem to be falling into a generic and uninteresting role.  I think Wildstar pointed this out this in the Vomitrocious post, and I'm really starting to see it now.  She's pulled the backfiring marketing assistance thing too many times now.  I'm really hoping that she shows some character development and dynamic in Caught in the Crosswires.
-I was also hoping Molly would have a speaking role or at least do something more significant, but she seems to be entirely a background character so far this season.  I suspect this may be her fate from this point forward, given that her character pretty much ran its course and found closure in The Last Tough Customer.  If she's effectively finished, then at least it was a beautiful character arc.  Still, this would have been a great opportunity for her to be a Tough Consumer and wreak havoc on Yumbobo.

Director's Cut is also available on Youtube, btw.  It's next on my list.

I too was surprised to see Chip and Catherine together in Brain Freeze, only to be disappointed a few seconds later to learn it was just Brain daydreaming. Though it makes me wonder if Brain was made aware of their potential relationship at some point, through either Francine or Muffy.

Muffy hasn't been without her moments in the 9storyverse. She showed a bit of complexity in "Muffy Takes the Wheel", how she didn't want to take credit for her dad's work on her project. And in "Just the Ticket" she called and told the other kids about Arthur abandoning the tickets, when she could have done the typical Muffy thing and taken them for herself without anyone knowing.

I hope Molly hasn't become a background character, especially after her big moment in TLTC.

That's true about Muffy now that you point it out.  I think that deep down inside, I really just wanted to see her with a different hairstyle again.  :D

i hope Mrs. Compson doesn't get mad at Bud for having a snowball in the freezer during waiting for snow.

I just caught the Hebrew version of "Caught in the Crosswires" on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e18Sky3-Sg).

From my very, very, very basic knowledge of the Hebrew language (and a little help from Google Translator) it was actually a good episode from what little I understood from the dialogue. It definitely does make up for Muffy's poor character development in the 9storyverse eps. I did think the parody of reality shows was a bit dated, though.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD, if you'd rather wait for the English version to air...

The highlight of the episode was Muffy asking Bailey if she is spoiled, and him answering "It's a possibility." Bailey then asks Muffy if he is spineless, and she tells him he's the bravest man she's ever known (apart from her dad, of course).

Bailey definitely has become a surrogate father to Muffy, further evidenced by the fact that her parents completely ignore her throughout the episode as they try to hog the cameras' attention with their Crosswire Motors advertisements.

Another scene I liked was J. Cube (the reality show producer) trying to amp up the drama in the show by convincing Muffy that the soup Bailey served her was scalding hot, and Muffy arguing that it isn't...
Quote
J. Cube: Bailey served you a bowl of boiling hot soup? What kind of monster does such a thing?
Muffy: Um, it isn't that hot.
J. Cube: But it could have been.
Muffy: But it's not.
J. Cube: Maybe a little?
Muffy: No, it isn't.
At least that's what I got out of translating it. I just found that scene to be funny for some reason.

Some other things...
- Bailey is revealed to be 37 years old.
- Mommie Dearest reference ("Wire hangers?! WIRE HANGERS?!")
- Not specific to the episode, but the Hebrew version of Buster sounds like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings films.

I need to wait for that episode to come out.
