Franklin & Bash Season 4 Premiere Review “The Curse of Hor-Aha” – The Mice Will Play

Franklin & Bash Season 3 Episode 10 Gone in a Flash (4)

In this episode of Franklin & Bash, called “The Curse of Hor-Aha,” the boys take over the firm after an unfortunately incident, which leaves them struggling to run a business and have fun.

I have to admit that I was a little put off by the first half of this episode. I didn’t really miss Rachel that much (sorry, but it’s true), but I definitely missed everyone else. I loved the antics of Pindar and Infeld and the foe that Karp was to the boys.

But as the episode unfolded further, I began to enjoy the new dynamic, which was really the original dynamic of the show. Deep down, Franklin & Bash is about, well Franklin and Bash. These are the guys that we love and root for, despite wanting to shake some sense into them half the time. I’ll admit that more recent seasons had started to become more about the other characters and I’m excited to see it all go back to being about Peter and Jared.

It’s their wacky legal style that I want to see and I loved that it was tempered with them actually trying to run a business. They seem to do better when they have a challenge and being in charge of an entire law firm is one heck of a challenge. Of course, there were some new faces added to the show and so far, I’m okay with that. Dan cracked me up with his own unique kind of strangeness, while Ellen made for a good adversary to keep the boys (somewhat) in line.

Now that they’ve learned the truth about what happened to Infeld, I wonder if we’ll see them try to get him back at some point in the future. But I think for now, Infeld will be better off being someone they just see every once in a while. And Karp will be great as a rival attorney on their cases. I love Karp so it’s nice that he’ll still be around every once in a while to give the boys grief.

Overall, a nice start to a new and improved Franklin & Bash. This episode had me laughing out loud a few times, which bodes well for Season 4. I can’t wait to see what kinds of adventures they’ll be getting into this year.

My favorite bits:

The boys bringing a zombie into a courtroom. I was impressed when it chewed off Jared’s arm. That’s not something you see every day.

Jared offering to help Ellen relax.

“Zombies don’t talk.”

Infeld leaving the boys in charge of the firm while he went to jail. Excuse me a moment… *collapses into hysterical laughter*

Peter using Storage Wars as a reference on the case.

Peter pretending to shrink Jared’s head. Ha!

Jared nearly losing his mind when Mason said he only liked Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Dan humming along with Peter and scaring the daylights out of him.

The way Dan tried to look up at his forehead when Peter asked if he had gotten Botox. Like he thought he could actually see it.

The Bone meeting Ellen.

“I hate you.”
“Of course you do.”

Being so happy to see Karp again. Yay!

Peter being sure to clarify that Jared meant “fat” when he said Karp looked prosperous.

“I have the body mass index of a teenager.”
“Surrounded by a family of bears.”

Wait. Did Peter just do the hand gesture I think he did?

Peter’s “You would” when Jared “Aw’d” at the idea of pygmies.

Ellen having to remind The Bone that the word he was looking for was “freedom.”

The sorority girl totally seeing through the boys’ act. I love that she asked them to handler her ticket first. It seems that one speech they gave taught her well.

Jared looking up when Peter said there was an incoming on his 12:00.

Dan somehow thinking that sound didn’t travel in an elevator. I’ve met people like that.

Peter and Jared demonstrating that they could make a weed reference about anything.

Ellen refusing to let The Bone celebrate, even after she won his case.

Mason calling the boys “dream killers.”

The boys finding a brilliant way to invoke “Hor-aha.”

Karp actually looking toward the door when Mason said the army of the dead was coming.

The conversation between the boys after Dan fell asleep right in front of them. The “Don’t touch him” part totally cracked me up.

The look Peter gave Jared when he tried to say that Karp hooking up with a senior partner was “extremely unprofessional.”

Jared actually acting like a grown up and using words like “payroll.” What alternate universe have I stumbled into??

Jared telling Mason he wanted to kill him and take the mask. Okay so maybe he’s still the same guy. Whew.

“Looks like we solved the case, through weed-iation.” – Ha!

Why did it not surprise me the least tiny bit to see that the boys were part of the weed party, too?

Laughing so hard I was in tears at everything the boys said once Ellen left the room. “I’m shrinking!” “Maintain.” “You maintain.”

The boys trying to do a job interview while high as kites.

“You have to let go of losing that $2.5 million, it’s been, like, 107 minutes.”

“If I get a dog, I’m gonna name it Richard and feed it waffles.”
