My God, this was fantastic! Definitely the best one yet! I really liked the wacky character animation and Katy got some really nice character development. Everything really showed how hard she's trying to fit in and how stressed-out she is. Loved the guy throwing her off the table they were dancing on. The snow on the outside also looked really nice. I was pretty much expecting this episode. Every comedy these days decides to get serious at some point and introduce character development. You did that masterfully. I knew it was gonna happen from the moment it started when I saw the beautiful snow, but you still made this feel like it was Sublo & Tangy Mustard, not a different show. The whole thing was packed with some of the best jokes so far and the character development was delivered in such a way that it didn't stop Sublo & Tangy Mustard's antics. I really loved the escalation of the fight, especially Marvin breaking the plastic cup. Tangy Mustard's dancing and ability to get with Vanessica (great name btw) was also funny to me. The guy who brought the rock and Sublo's reaction to him were great as well. I also liked the more subtle joke of Sublo missing the meaning of Tangy Mustard saying "thirsty girls". Wubhammer's hobby was also really funny, and it really came around in the end.
Like I said, some of the best jokes yet and some wonderful character development and cool animation.

Yeah I wanted to strike a balance between maintaining the usual tone of the show and getting into more varied situations so we can get to know the characters better outside of work. This is probably still my personal favourite episode.

The lighting is the best. You're the best!

This episode is perhaps the most "ordinary life" one. Everything about this party feels so familiar (maybe with the exception of the two dudes wearing costumes, depends on the type of parties you go to). The type of jokes this time are different from most other episodes, most will make you laugh because of how familiar they are, instead of being extraordinary.

Again, this episode starts off on the outside, it's snowing and Tangy Mustard is wearing a jacket. And in the end, being a cold day plays only a small part in the plot, being there only makes everything seem more normal and relatable.

In the end this seems like a great episode for Sublo, we thought we knew how much socially awkward he was, but he proves us wrong. Also, Katy proves, as the episodes progress, that she is a much more complex character then she first appears to be.

I had a really good time watching this, reminded me of my own experience with parties like this one. Seeing a hidden side of your co-workers (getting dirty), standing in a corner pretending to be texting, people getting into senseless fights and that stupid guy that always wants everyone to "be cool" by punching them.

Anyone else wanna smash Katy?


Great characters here the party scene was fantastic, Alright you do have something here I was actually pretty impressed with what you have going on here, I did however think some extras could be added and you could change some things, but overall you have done well on this. I would call this Cutting Edge and Ritzy, you have Turbo Charged it to full throttle and thats what I liked about this.

Make more like this.
