I mentioned this episode to my wife this morning, her response: "I'm pretty sure Usidore was already evil."

Mirror universes generally can be cute little one-offs, and they did that pretty well here, all in all. You hit enough "opposite" moments (Arnie and Chunt Wendigo love each other! Chick-Fil-A is Evil Burger King! Hotmail is Evil Gmail! Wed Mothers!), you don't look too deeply into the worldbuilding, and at the end, you have one little thing switch to the "good" universe.

Matt Young carried the concept, as always (I am so ready for The Probe, starting tomorrow). Adal Rifai was better than usual without his standard complement of go-to Chuntisms. Arnie was... not really into the idea, I guess? Like, he committed to it a few times, but didn't really seem to want to go all in.

A fun episode, stuffed full of easter eggs for the fans. Four out of five.
