  2. Man, the MOMENT that Mig 29 track started I was immediately jamming. I fucking LOVED that! Never heard it before and I knew from the first note that it was great. Very nice choice.

    I also want to say that I really love how you can hear birds chirping in the background of this episode between songs. Very soothing and actually adds a lot to the show's atmosphere.

    As for the Batman track, the start of it always bothered me any time I'd play the game growing up. That second note that lasts a long time sounds like the game freezing, especially since the screen goes dark at the same time that note hits.

    Gotta ask, what's the story behind this episode's photo? I don't see how pointing at the globe relates to title themes.

    1. Every photo for each episode relates to either the the theme of the episode or something the boys talked about in the episode. Sometimes it's not as obvious, but in this case, the globe must relate to something they talked about at one point.
