This ep had some really great moments and some really sick and wrong ones. Ron getting so out of character/shape was disturbing to watch. K/R fans are not going to like this one. Definately the weakest of the episodes so far. Bringing back some classic villans was awesome though. It was nice to see Duff and Gemini again.

So everyone blames me for making stuff to sick and wrong? Come on... I mean, yeah, it might have been a kinda big risk to take and all, but seriously, Mr. B. knows better than to start up on the anti-BN stuff again. I was fed up with him trashin my place!
And its not like I didn't do some serious analytical analysis and whatever before starting all that... and the mutating stuff, I mean who could have seen that coming? Course I'm no stranger to the zany mutant thing, but still its not like you can actually plan for that.
And, ya know... KP was really good through the whole thing, even though she did take a couple shots.
I also had problems with this episode stalling during the nacho cheese part, so I might've missed a small portion of things betwen the time where he eats the cheese and Kim and the tweebs go after him, but after a few million attempts, it finally worked. Anyways, this was a disturbing episode, but I'm kind of glad it was. I wouldn't expect a "kid's show" to tackle a subject like overeating, especially in such a way that it mirrors a documentary, so I really loved that part of it.
I also liked that Kim stood by Ron and tried to get him to change his ways. Ron was unusually stubborn in this, which is the only thing that really bugged me. Duff Killigan chasing people in his golf cart is the greatest thing in all the world, and Drakken cracked me up with "Well, it's not mine either, but I'm a VILLIAN, so it's okay!". It's a strange episode, but a really enjoyable one. I give it an 4 out of 5, as per the poll's rating scale.

I was a bit put off by the politically-correct theme. It's as if the creative team is trying to atone for all the scenes in past episodes where Ron heartily enjoyed fast-food fare without any consequences.
On the other hand, much of the episode was a scream. In particular, a lot of Ron's Hulk moments were laugh-out-loud funny.
And, once again, Bueno Nacho gets smashed up. Who pays to fix all this? Doesn't the chain get bothered about it? I'm worried that one of these days we might see this headline in the business section of the Middleton Examiner --

This episode felt like a weird, alternate universe episode. Not only were we faced with a weird, obsessive, rude Ron, we also got a "public service message" plot and bad animation. Definitely the worst one of a great season so far.

I dispise this epi. I have not been able to see the whole thing yet but what I have seen so far is not cool. It's like Ron has regressed two seasons. Maybe I'll feel better about it later but as of now. "Bleegghhh"
Holy crow, captain. It's like we're sharing a brain on this.
Watched it online last night (though it kept freezing during Ron's rampage, for some reason). There were some funny moments, mainly where the villains were concerned, but Ron annoyed me, not in the 'cocky, "Partners"/"Ron Millionaire"' sort of way, but in the 'let's dumb him down for teh maximum funny!' way. The first couple times of him failing to attribute the problems to his own doing ("Must've shrunk") were mildly amusing, at best, but after that, I wanted to shut my computer off.
Even more, Kim pretty much stood idly by and let this happen; no slapping the food away when things got really bad. Some best friend/girl friend. And do Ron's parents not exist anymore?! Forgive the quoting of my "Ron Millionaire" diatribe, but they could've (and should've) put a stop to their son's madness. However, Barkin was a riot.
All told, it's better than "The Cupid Effect"...but not by much.
Matter of fact, cap, I'll be sticking with your story "Keep the Home Fires Burning" if I want an entertaining variation on 'Ron's love of fast food threatens to ruin his relationship with Kim'.
I'm a little disappointment because "Hulk-Ron" was orange instead of green. Well, I guess that if the last thing he had eaten was guacamole instead of cheese, we would have turned green. Don't you think so?.
