That was a good episode. Nothing gut bustingly funny, but I can say that stuff like the warthog gags, some of the shots during The Ballad of Klimpaloon, and the whole "I will stop at nothing" thing were definitely highlights. Besides the song at the end, my favourite thing in the episode was actually Candace risking herself to save Klimpaloon - it definitely was worth mentioning in Save Summer (I still wish they aired this before the special, though :/). Also, Phineas really got a few angry moments this time around, didn't he? I mean, they were things that anyone would get mad at (ESPECIALLY Buford going full moron in that plan that had... a fairly low probability of succeeding), though it was something that stood out (I mean, I'm not sure if we've had a villain that actually planned to kill just to make a profit). I mean... there was the start where Phineas enthusiastically supported Candace's claims, there was the Buford moment (which also seemed to annoy everyone else, particularly Isabella), and there was his reaction to Mr Random's plan. I mean, I don't think he got as angry as the movie or Mission Marvel, but it was still noteworthy (though unlike those moments, these were things anyone would get angry at, as I stated before). Also, 0_0 at the attempted recreations of Klimpaloon. So yeah, good episode, though like Operation Crumb Cake I'm still disappointed that it had to be spoiled for me. Buford's idiot move did want me to facepalm, but that aside I didn't have any real issues with the episode.
...what, you want me to comment on THAT scene? Well... Phineas got mad because Klimpaloon was being used as an experiment... and, uh... actually, now that I think about it, Phineas was being kind of sweet there. I mean, Isabella was probably the most visibly unsettled at what Mr Random was doing, so Phineas embracing her like that was actually pretty nice on his part.
EDIT: Of course, now it's time for the good old "I have thought more about the episode and will post additional thoughts" thing.
made some good points, namely with noticing the bin of dead Klimpaloon recreations (fridge horror, people!) and pointing out the scene where Phineas actually defends Candace's story when they reach Linda, which was a nice scene of Phineas defending Candace. I was also pointed out by
that Buford's idiot moment was actually a Leeroy Jenkins reference (also, lol at using a "gamer's strategy"). tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…
And yeah, just as I thought - this is like Terrifying Tri-State Trilogy of Terror and Operation Crumb Cake, where my own pessimism towards fans prevented me from liking the episode as much as I would've if I was in a good mood.
Also, a few people seem to have noticed the lack of a Doof/Perry plot in the episode - I didn't mind it personally (especially since we've gotten a lot of episodes where they are the main focus), though I will say I found that some of their stuff was the funniest in this episode. Also, the escape scene was pretty funny as well - Ferb just simply pulling the plug, and the guards actually fell for Candace's Klimpaloon noises.
EDIT II: Okay, so I actually decided to check out the whole Leeroy Jenkins thing. The attention to detail in that scene was insane, percentages, quotes and everything!
