I would do a longer review but my browser crashed and disgarded it after I finished it.
Loved the designs, most of the characters (Sam, Max, Bosco and Specs), the observations, neatly plotted story (if slow), liked the newspaper headlines and the line: fire away grizzly!, and the psychoanalysis puzzles, the ending was also quite a joyous spectacle. The driving sequences + The pulling overs. The El Train - made the neighbourhood feel alive - which it really isn't at the moment with Sam and Max just wondering around.
Didn't like Sybil and the other soda poppers, some of the observations like the gumball machine and of some Bosco's products were quite weak, the office - (sorry but I have to talk about future episodes here) having had so many future episodes with the office in it, with better things like Whack-a-Rat, etc. it just seemed quite dull, despite some interesting observational jokes.
Overall, a good starter episode, that had some good things to say, a tight and neat plot, story was quite interesting (unlike a few later S+M ep's), plus the characters introduced quite well, apart from my exceptions: Sybil - annoying sterotype figure that in this episode I had no fondness for, Soda Poppers - Do I need to go there?
Plus the score was amazing, and characters and location designs were pretty much without faults.
