The Outrageous Okona
Rating: 1

This ones a real eye-roller. It’s a study of humor, which even if done by really funny people would be a bit painful. It’s a self-defeating premise. Studying humor makes it not funny anymore. It also has the Rocketeer with a clip-on pony-tail.

    You need to maintain this level of brutally frank criticism. Especially in regards to the really bad episodes like this one. They make the summaries a joy to read. Keep em coming!
