Well, Season 3 has been over for almost a month now, so I think it's time we sort out the best of the best. The worst of the worst. The sweet of the sour. That's right, it's time for the Devil's Playhouse End of Season Awards (tm)! The categories are...

The Good:
Funniest episode
Episode with the best story
Episode with the best music
Episode with the best puzzles
Most shocking episode
Best new location

Best overall episode

And the Bad:
Least funny episode
Worst story in an episode
Episode with the worst puzzles
Episode that best failed to meet expectations
Worst new character
Worst use of an old character
Worst overall episode

Without further Mountain Dew, let's get this trainwreck a-rolling! Post your votes below! Come Sunday, October 10th, I'll post the results and the winners will be known.

    Burn the witch!

  • The Good:
    Funniest episode: Both The Penal Zone and the City That Dares Not Sleep
    Episode with the best story: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls (for the finale)
    Episode with the best music: They Stole Max's Brain (The noir act had the best music)
    Episode with the best puzzles: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls
    Most shocking episode: The City That Dares Not Sleep
    Best new location: The Statue of Liberty
    Best new character: Sal
    Best use of an old character: Sam & Max. Okay, seriously, I gotta say I really liked Doctor Momma Bosco in this season.
    Best overall episode: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls (honestly, the season should have ended roughly around here. Big finale, end of the psychic toys arc, the Toybox was destroyed, and in the end the fifth episode was essentially just due to Max falling on a shrimp-like Elder God fetus. It seemed kind of weak and while 305 has great lines, is very emotionally powerful and I DO like it, I think they could have segued into it better.)

    And the Bad:
    Least funny episode: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls (it was just the one with the fewest jokes, I find.)
    Worst story in an episode: N/A
    Episode with the worst puzzles: They Stole Max's Brain (the alternate universe was just plain terrible to play through. The atmosphere was just GONE because I could barely hear the background music)
    Episode that best failed to meet expectations: They Stole Max's Brain
    Worst new character: Sammun-Mak
    Worst use of an old character: Girl Stinky
    Worst overall episode: They Stole Max's Brain
