Dumb Lines (4:39 PM)


Rant (4:05 PM - 4:43 PM)

What's up with showing Link in shadows at the beginning of the episode? We can clearly tell it's him, and he's revealed shortly after anwyay.

It's interesting that Zelda wants Link to earn his keep when Gannon isn't attacking. It's also right.

It's surprising to hear that the castle has a wine cellar. I wouldn't have expected a reference to alcohol.

Oh, no. Gannon wants Zelda to marry him. Well, at least it's only to make him the ruler of Hyrule - I hope.

How did Zelda turn back to normal while still wearing the necklace?

How could Zelda be fooled by that fake moblin?

Link exclaims "Excuuuse me, Princess!" and asks Zelda for a kiss. It's Bob Forward. Stop expecting something else from him.

Lesson: Link is a dick.

Despite Link's infamous line and demands for a kiss, "Hitch In the Works" is a good episode.

There wasn't much for me to write about this episode. It's okay. The fact that I found no bad lines should indicate how good this episode is. Of course, the fact that I found no good lines indicates this episode is not as good as the rest.

Overall, "Hitch In the Works" is a good episode. I look forward to reviewing the next one.

Usefulness ratings:

Link: 15 (defeating 6 moblins, defeating 2 stalfos, causing 2 stalfos to defeat each other, causing the three dragon heads to collide with Gannon and the Grim Reaper)
Zelda: 0 (distracting the goma, working on the catapult, collecting the dirt with ants, launching the beehive at Gannon, hiding the Triforce of Wisdom from Sleazenose)
Spryte: 0 ()

Zelda completely loses out this time as Link hogs all of the action.

This is the fourth episode of the series without Spryte (not that I missed her), so she doesn't get any points.

The running total usefulness ratings for the series so far are:

Link: 112 (10 episodes)
Zelda: 49 (10 episodes)
Spryte: 7 (6 episodes)

That's the end of my review of "Hitch In the Works". I'll review "Fairies In the Spring" next. See you all in my next review!
