Back with the second episode of the Winter 2012 comedy series, Kill Me, Baby! Although it’s tough to do episodic reviews for a comedy series, cold medicine is giving me this odd confidence that it CAN be done. So, here we go.
Sonya and Yasuna…fight a bear. Well, “fight” isn’t the right word. More like, they did slapstick comedy around a bear that had previously escaped the zoo, and was returned after being incapacitated by Yasuna’s head-butt. True to form, Kill Me, Baby takes what’s ordinarily a dire situation, and keeps me laughing with gag after gag. I have to say, Agiri’s “jutsu” and “secret ninja techniques” will do me in by the end of the series. I love the whole premise of cheap illusions and magic tricks you see from a mile away, but it always ends unexpectedly.
Though freaking out around a loose bear was probably the main focus of the episode, we also get to see the antics these two girls can get into when left to their own devices. Or rather, Yasuna’s devices. After failing to receive any training in possible countermeasures for Sonya’s painful reactions to her, Yasuna purchases nun-chucks, swiftly proceeding to knock herself senseless with them. And then there’s Sonya’s reluctant game of tag after trying to blow off Yasuna’s game of hide-and-seek.
I wish I could just look everyone in the face and say “Trust me, you’ll laugh”, but comedy is subjective and Kill Me, Baby is exactly what tickles my funny bone. Episodic reviews aren’t going to be a constant thing for this series, but I might bring one up every now and then because I like it so much.
Until next time,
