Plot

Henry Hart returns back to Swellview and welcomed back Danger Force and Captain Man. He asks the team how they've been doing since he left and they tell him about their missions including their mission at the Swellview Prison when they accidentally let out all of the prisoners that Henry spent his childhood locking up in jail. He asks them if they caught any of them with them telling him their still out their committing crimes as they speak. After they talk, Ray asks Henry why he's here and he tells him that he is here to see him. Ray insists they go out and fight crime like the times when Henry was his sidekick but Henry tells him he wanted to lay low because everyone in Swellview thinks Kid Danger is dead. This leads to Danger Force going on several missions while Ray and Henry play games in the Man's Nest.

Why It Rocks

  1. The idea of having Henry back in the sequel/spin-off is quite a decently executed idea, even if he only appeared for 2 episodes.
  2. Tons of hilarious scenes, shown in the episode such as;
    • The scene where Henry destroyed his phone, after accidentally putting the voicemail in speaker.
    • Bose eating a nacho ball, while blaming it on his other teammates.
    • Ray and Henry's "Rock and Roll" Montage.
    • The scene where Schwoz stated that he left a present for Henry, then stating that the present is alive, only to bite Henry afterwards.
  3. The Squad isn't as annoying as they are in the previous episodes, (with the exception of Miles of course, as he retains his likeable personality).
    • in fact Bose isn't as Stupid as he is for the majority of the show, rather being a likeable goofy teenager.
    • Chapa isn't as aggressive and abusive as she is mostly, and even tells Henry that not to be terrified of a bounty hunter, and even stating they aren't as skilled as he is in terms of being sidekick and a hero.
    • Mika doesn't have that much dialogue and screen time, which makes her more tolerable.
  4. BlackOut is pretty decent villain with a fearsome motive of hunting down people and indulging their souls as for his own satisfaction.
  5. Henry's dystopian battle gear, looks pretty cool and could be considered as an improvement towards his Kid Danger suit, with the coloring being much nicer to look at and the overall simplicity towards the suit.
  6. It is reasonable why the Danger Force stood up for Ray, as he is abusing the gang just because his best friend is back in town, a reunion is nice all and all, but looking at it it's just stupid to leave your sidekicks out in the dust just because someone important to you has returned for a very long time, however it is understandable for Ray as well as he might be very idiotic but if you look at it at a different perspective, he did feel somewhat lonely towards the absence of his best friend and former sidekick, so it's only a matter to have some fun with Henry, however leaving everything to your sidekick is just plain irresponsible and immature.
  7. The ending is quite decent and hilarious.

Bad Qualities

  1. Ray is pretty unlikable as in this episode.
  2. It is unknown why Henry is really being hunted by a bounty hunter, as we never got a proper explanation from him of why he's being tracked down, was it the fact that he's blindly been assisting a criminal, without knowing his true colors and what his motives are or it is the fact that he was setup by a criminal from dystopia, to do some particular task only to fail and Henry become the target.

Reception

  • It holds a rating of 8.6/10 on IMDb.
