TV Review: Comic Book Men S4E4 Super Baby

comic book menIn this episode of Comic Book Men, the guys agree to help out a friend and babysit her daughter for the afternoon. An Indiana Jones superfan tries to sell rare items from the films.

This was an interesting episode, in that it’s the first episode I felt the guys were outright mean to someone coming into the store. The Indiana Jones fan is the first to come into the store, and there’s something about the joking that comes off as mean spirited. It’s a very odd segment overall, but a cool item is shown…. so there’s that.

The other segment involving someone trying to sell something is just odd, and shows off the unrealistic expectations folks have in trying to sell their items. That too is a very odd one. But, it shows that folks have a poor idea of what their stuff is actually worth.

The baby segment is very entertaining. Watching the guys deal with the baby is almost a stark contrast to their dealing with their customers, and each other. Some of the stuff is pure gold, and had me laughing. Overall, the baby crawling around the store reminded me a lot of stores that allow cats (or ferrets in the case of the store I used to work out) run around. Something just odd about it all.

Again a very interesting episode that’s a bit mixed. It’s better than last week, but not quite as awesome as some previous episodes.

Overall rating: 6.85
