The Good, The Bad, And The Season 4


Sadly there's no new episode today, or any on the coming Saturdays for the forseeable future, but this is a good runner up.... no... didn't think you'd bite.  The one wherein I'll probably upset some people.  Dusty making people angry?  Never!

  1. My ratings for the show are as follows. Here's what they mean. A score of "3/5" is average. With 2/5 being below average and 4/5 being above average. 5/5 means that it is among the best episodes and 1/5 means that it is among the worst episodes. However, this is comparable only to the season. Pretty much any season one episode is better than any season three episode, so I'm splitting it up like this. Even though I think Stare Master was a great episode, for example, I am still ranking it low because it is below average for Season 1. Note that this means that there is an equal number of "above average" and "below average" episodes, since that's kinda the definition of average. Also note that Season 3 was scored on a 4-point scale instead of a 5-point scale, because I don't think anything from Season 3 deserves a 5. Just consider "3/4" to be above average and "2/4" to be below average. Finally, there is a single episode in each season that was given a score of 0. This is a special score reserved only for the episode that I believe is the worst in the season.

  2. This video has really enlightened to the fact that the people who watch my stuff have completely different taste than I do. While I agree with some of your scores, some I vehemently contest, but whatever, I'll allow it.

    Also the fact that you have A Dog and Pony Show still blows my mind.

    Almost every episode I put on my good list save for Twilight's Kingdom you gave a 2. Aww. But I will give you props for giving Trade Ya a low score, it shocks me how people try to defent it. And Daring Don't, I agree that it was a bad episode that I see way too much love for.

    1. Well, a score of a 2 just means that it's below average. The way that my scoring system works, in order to raise the score of one episode, I have to lower the score of another. And vice versa.

    2. Oh, and in regards to me hating "A Dog and Pony Show", I will grant you this: It is a million times better than anything in Season 3. And most of Season 4 for that matter.
