"What About Blob?" Season 1, Episode 5

I swear, halfway through this episode I had a You Can't Do That on Television moment, expecting a bucketful of green slime to pour down on someone's head. That didn't quite happen, but tonight's ooze was nevertheless pretty grody, and I felt terrible that poor Ben got swallowed up in the stuff. But at least this time he didn't lose any eyebrows from the ordeal. The escaped soul, a corrupt tycoon who spent years polluting the environment by dumping toxic waste illegally, came back in green blob form (how appropriate) to try to wipe out all the people who stood to get his still-living son in trouble for the crimes he inherited from his dad. Our guys had to figure out how the vessel, a knitted Christmas sweater (Sock: "Maybe you use that and the soul laughs it way back to hell?") could possibly absorb a spirit. Well, I guess that's exactly how it went down in the end, now isn't it? Superabsorbent knitting saves the day. I especially enjoyed the Freddy Krueger claw that DMV-maven Gladys whipped out to extract the spirit. I have a feeling Sock really enjoyed that part. So, let's get down to brass tacks. I knew, I so knew that Sam's dad was up to something. I didn't buy his whole suddenly worried-dad shtick. I don't doubt that as a father he must be worried somewhere inside that heart of plastic, but until he heard about Sam's contract possession, he wasn't exactly Mr. Involved. I want to know what he's hiding. Is the page he burned something that points blame at himself? In any case, we know the Devil sees all, and I'm sure this isn't the last we'll be seeing of the issue. It was creepy finding out that the moment many of us were waiting for, Sam coming clean to Andi about his deal with the Dark One, would be dangerous for her. Though that seems relatively logical, I think I would have still preferred it if she was able to play a spirit-butt-kicking role. In any case, we're reminded here that the Devil, despite his charm, is still a baddie. 'Cause, yes, we needed some reminding. Do you think Andi will ever find out the truth? Will Sam ever get a girlfriend with the kind of schedule he's keeping? And what is the Halloween episode all about? I'm not telling, but I'm drooling in anticipation.
