  1. Must admit, I'm looking forward to this one. I like Salty episodes, but with the writing style the way it is... I dunno, I'll see what it's like.

  2. Hmmmm. Not sure about this one. It has the word "surprise" in the title. But I WON'T be SURPRISED if this is just another Sharon Miller episode with rhymes, repetition and three-strikes galore. I'll give this one a chance but my expectations of this episode being a good one are quite low.

  3. Nice that Salty has his own episode, but with the writing the way it is, as mentioned above, but i'm not sure...

  4. Great to see that Salty is having an episode for himself, but yes with Sharon Miller writing.. meh :P
