Countdown to Ep 3 - "They Stole Max's Brain!"

posted by ttg_Stemmle on - last edited - Viewed by 3.9K users

Hey, all. Mike Stemmle here.

With Episode 303 making the final turn before hitting the virtual streets, now seems like a good time for a "members only"* thread in which Joe Pinney and I open up the floor to a few questions about the episode.

What can I tell y'all about this ep? It's got:

- Sam as you've never seen him!
- Max taking charge of an investigation!
- Hot Ape-on-Cockroach action!
- More rhinoplastying than you can shake a stick at!
- Sam's surprising new partner!

Consider the floodgates open,

    The ventriloquism "beans" joke on the Disorient Express - Andy Hartzell blamed it on credited it to you. Whoever wrote it, it was awesomely juvenile. :p

  • That 'Sam as you've never seen him' bit reminds me of that concept art of 'noir' Sam. I'm hoping that's what you're referring to, because then I'm even more giddy than I thought I was.

    @mathman77 said: Been waiting for this thread. I have two questions:

    1. Any new powers (or any besides rhinoplasty)?


    What, the power to transform into carefully-selected inanimate objects isn't enough? What do you people want, blood?


    2. Will this episode have two storylines (one for Sam, one for Max) that you can switch between?


    Sam and Max pretty much share the same storyline (at least, I think they do... I mean, it's possible that Max is secretly having some sort of magical fantasy adventure with elves and dragons that represent his various abandonment issues, but that's not very likely), so we won't be juggling multiple storylines this time around. That said, we probably will be going back into Max mode. Of course, without a brain, Max Mode might be a little, um, vacant.

    Totally sure you wanna know?

    I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna like the answer either

    Abandonment issues? *SLAP Myself*

    Now you say that, How we going to use the psychic powers if Max doesn't have a brain? (By the way, if Rhinoplasty is back, is also back Mind Reading?)

  • Will we get use of the crime tron again in this episode?

    Hmmm. Fart jokes accompanied by over-explanation. Sounds like me.

    1) Yes, how WILL he use psychic powers without a brain? Of course, we're all assuming Max's psychic powers come from his brain to begin with... maybe they're lodged in his knees or something...

    2) Mind reading? When did we ever promise mind reading? Oh yeah... maybe we should get back to that power before the season ends.

    Someone stole Max's brain. In most states, that's a crime. It stands to reason that the Crime-Tron will put in an appearance.

    Can those powers been psychic to begin with if they don't come up from his brain?

    Awww.... I loved the 3 lines of Sam while reading his brain... and also Gordon's. But, will be back, right? RIGHT?

    If the Crime-Tron is back, will there be more of the smaller, clue-finding locations like those found in The Penal Zone (Meesta Pizza, Bob's Toys!s)?
