Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain!
Rating: NR - Not Rated

Brainless Max - well now that's a problem, because Max is the one with all the astral powers. The episode opens with Sam screaming over Max's limp body - his brain pan sawed open, ears flapping limply. Truly shocking sight for a S&M game. We get to see another side of Sam. No longer a suited dapper gent with a fedora, now, with his shirt sleeves rolled up he is a tough, brutal PI fiercely questioning everyone, looking for clues. After many go arounds, and lots of jokes, he heads to the museum to encounter .

Good use of the Egyptian theme in graphics and gags. This one wraps things up nicely so you are not left hanging by your fingertips from the edge of a cliff. Informational Alert - I didn't know that those guys twirling signs on street corners are called Sign Spinners - how poetic.

Next stop - Beyond the Alley of the Dolls
