Its days like today I think this whole "watch every episode" gimmick is a bad idea. With just 1 episode in to this Plastic Man series and 34 to go, I am already wishing I could just get on to Batman: The Animated Series already. This episode was just so bland and ironically "stretched out."
The Weed was the episodes villain, and as you can imagine, a guy with a turnip face isn't too exciting - even if he has a super plant growth formula.
I will be upfront and admit I am not exactly sure of the airing order of these episodes, so I am going to trust the order of the DVD release which kind of makes sense because each week there was one 22 minute and one 11 minute episode - the same as on the DVD. Anyways, assuming this is the correct order, this episode also introduced Plas' supporting cast. "Bad Luck" Hula AKA Hula Hula, an underused Hawaiian stereotype and Penny, an unrequited love interest / partner as well as the Chief who sends the team out on missions. Like the rest of the episode, I found this group to be on the bland and cheesy side.-----
