Befuddling Noir
27 February 2020 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is my sixth favorite episode of the show. It's pretty much a parody on the noirs/whodunnit mysteries much like the films "Clue" and "Knives Out". I really love how the episode really parodies everything to a tee from the format to all the clichés.

Really like Steve in the hard-boiled detective role, it was just funny from the narration, dialog down to his name which is cool Johnny Danger which is a name he's true too in one sense and another. Even Laura is good as the femme fatale, it's funny whenever she walked there is always drumming, which is funny because whenever the femme fatales enter the picture there is always some romantic music playing.

There are just a lot of really good scenes, from the scene of the first death and then suddenly Richie the Paperboy coming from out of nowhere suddenly delivers tomorrow's or should I say today's paper, that just cracked me up it just goes to show the old saying "news travels fast".

But it of course come down to the final scene which is funny as it's your typical accusation in the murder mansion scene. That scene leads to my favorite dialog from Murtah and Johnny/Steve which clearly states the cliché; it's just so funny because it's true in the Whodunnit stories most of the time when someone is questioned they get bumped off, almost like the questioning is a kiss of death.

Like any good mystery, this episode is one worth uncovering.
