Nice Explanations--Review of Episode 202

Episode 202 is quite a good episode, in large measure, because the creators actually take time to explain why the various characters are behaving as they are. It's nice to see some attention to the basics. That's a nice change of pace. I give Episode 202, Survival of the Fittest, a rating of 8 out of 10.
