"CARTOON NETWORK""NTSF: SD: SUV" CNPh: Darren Michaels

NTSF:SD:SUV:: “The Risky Business of Being Alone in Your Home” Season 1, Episode 4 – Are you one of those people who set up your Christmas decorations the day after Halloween? Maybe you secretly listen to Christmas music well past December and into mid-March. Maybe your ringtone right now is set to play Jingle Bell Rock and maybe you’ll have all your Christmas shopping done before Labor Day. If so, tonight’s episode of NTSF:SD:SUV:: is for you.

If not, this episode of NTSF:SD:SUV:: is also for you. Just ignore the fact that it’s a Christmas episode… in August.

Since this is an advance review, I won’t give away any plot twists or punch lines, but “The Risky Business of Being Alone in Your Home” explores what Trent’s life is like when he’s forced to take a break from NTSF:SD:SUV:: for a day. A wheelchair bound Van Van Damme (Adam Scott) comes down to San Diego from NTSF: Portland to investigate a terrorist cell and acts as Trent’s temporary replacement on the NTSF:SD:SUV:: team.

Overall, this episode of NTSF:SD:SUV:: was fun and I loved Adam Scott in the role of Van Van Damme. In my opinion the best laughs came from a series of ridiculous action sequences that are as well choreographed as they are funny. Trent has a great fight scene in his back yard that is both gory and silly and near the end of the episode there is a brilliant chase sequence involving a lot of running, jumping, a wheelchair and stairs.

If you’ve enjoyed episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV:: in the past, be sure not to miss this episode tonight. I suppose if you’re feeling like it’s never too early to get into the Christmas spirit, this will probably be the only show with a Christmas theme on television tonight, so be sure to start the holiday season right, with an episode of NTSF:SD:SUV:: in August.
