So in this delightful episode, Maxine and some of the community’s grownups attempt to stage an intervention for Barnabas and his sea monster obsession. At the same time, the kids are making a camcorder monster movie that starts as a giant monster spectacle but the lead actor is uncomfortable in the role and would rather be a detective. It shouldn’t have surprised me that Sigmund, as “Ace Coolstone,” would wander into the intervention while all the grownups were distracted, but it did, and it was hilarious.
This is a great little series. I confess that I kind of miss Blurp and Slurp’s nastiness and malevolence, but they remain engaging because they’re so stupid. And Kyle Breitkopf is hysterical in this one as a school-age acting coach, helping Sigmund into character. Great stuff all around.
