ETL 107 The Bus Stops Here

(2001, Comedy/Fantasy/Sword and Sorcery/Animation, color)

Broke an axle on a busload of orcs last midwinter's eve, and nearly put 'er in the ditch...

Rating: **

Summary (from the original episode list at SciFi.com):

Note the tiny trees of the dwarf forest behind them.
The Bus Riders' bus breaks down, while Primatene and the Noble One try to persuade the fleeing Edward to continue on with the Quest.

Thoughts:


This episode is largely expository, albeit in an entertaining-ish sort of way. Unfortunately, no amount of banter can disguise the fact that nothing really happens, nor is anything revealed that we hadn't already figured out for ourselves. Features the return of the wizard Primatene in the second of many large, silly hats.
