Doppleganger:Episode review

(Doppleganger) 4.5/5
In a battle Snoop tapes Leader-1 instead of blasting him. Snoop:"Such a good looking Gobot. What a waste." She has filmed the other Guardians too. Crasher's take on this :"Oh great now we have home movies of the Guardians!".Well actually Snoop was not expanding the Gobo-porno collection she already has but instead in a much less interesting plot development she simply filmed the Guardians so that Dr.Go could make realistic looking doubles of the Guardians. Gradually they replace the real Guardians with their evil automaton doubles who don't act like the real Guardians at all. Cy-Kill plans to take control of Gobotron this way.Leader-1 doubts Small Foot's capability as an active Guardian after Crasher almost destroys her in the opening battle when Snoop was channeling both Mae West and Michaelangelo Antonioni. Leader-1 is humbled in a famous ambush scene with Crasher, Cop-Tur, and Dr.Go on top of him,I suspect Snoop was hiding somewhere shooting this footage too.Small Foot, Scooter, and the humans realize like right away(so much for the suspense) that the other Guardians are not quite themselves.Spoons the Renegade forklift shows up in this one,alas that was all for him.Small Foot gets a starring role in this episode:She tricks Crasher,ties up Fitor with her rope,and kills several Gobot duplicates.She totally blows up Flip Top and Blaster,and then the Leader-1 dupe gets blown up too.A classic episode,one of the best for sure.
