Review: Harvey Beaks ”Comet Night?; Comet Night!”

Harvey decides to go with his dad and friends to camp and check out a comet that only comes around 25 years. Mid-way through, the crew decides to take a rest and tell ghost stories which causes the boys to beat the shit out of Irving after he tells too scary of a story. The beating leaves Irving pretty much in a vegetative state causing Harvey and friends to have to carry him throughout the woods until they make it so a field. Thankfully, Irving bonks his head which seems to set him back to normal JUST in the nick of time to catch the comet pass by with his son.

Our Take

I’ve found that whenever guys in a cartoon want to spend time together, their first option is going camping. It’s becoming too common of a trope and that continues with Harvey. I did find it entertaining that we were dragging Irving’s carcass through the woods, though I would have like to have seen more danger. Unlike the second half of the episode, I didn’t sense that anything bad was going to happen to the kids rather they just eschewed that dragging Irving was a pain, other than that, rather standard fare.

Comet Night!

Spoilers Below

While the boys are out chasing a comet, the girls are back at the Beaks residence having a boring time. Growing restless, Miriam hires Jeremy to babysit and decides to get crazy with the kids! Roller blading, stealing from Randl, and then trashing a retirement home gets her and Foo arrested. Eventually they get let out, but the two realize that being boring isn’t all that bad.

Our Take

The better of the two halves of this week’s episode. Jeremy nearly burning the house to the ground provided a pretty hilarious alternative to the already comical exploits of Foo, Miriam, and the girls doing their best to tear the town apart. The pay off is the girls getting yelled at by Randl and then getting tazed and sent to jail. Isn’t that how all good nights are supposed to end?
