Review

The idea of a whole episode taking place on a train felt like itd be boring. A few minutes on a train I could understand, but a whole episode? Thanks to the multiple levels on this train and the incredible length of it, theyre on the train for almost the entire episode. The only moments with them not on the train was the intro and last few minutes include them reuniting after the trains partial derailing.

One of the best portions of this episode was seeing Agent West in action. Wed only seen minor glimpses of his clumsiness and humor in previous episodes, but here its all out in the open. Its hilarious and highly entertaining to see this highly unqualified agent performing work for a branch of government after such a dangerous synthoid.

Theres really not much else left to the episode aside from the aforementioned; its rather straightforward and no real advance in the series overall plot is found. Solid animation and voice work makes it another fun heroes-being-chased story that the series is so full of and its definitely worth watching for the laughs it gives.
