Scary monsters? I would say Scary CGI and scary lack of decent plot.
31 May 2019 | by tresm87See all my reviews

We are bound to get some mediocre episodes out of the 218 total and as an avid fan of this monumental show, I'd say they're few and far between and maybe only a handful a season. Scary monsters has the absolute laziest and some of the worst cgi I've ever seen. Even in the early to mid 90s episodes they had better offerings of effects. On top of that, the plot is just so banal and dull and made clearly as a filler episode before they finally wrapped it all up for s9. I enjoyed S9 but this is one of the top 20 worst episodes of the series.
