Just watched the episode, courtesy of nabby.
My rating 4/5.
I loved the whole "stick it to the man" theme that was going on. I'm afraid that Artie and I have a little too much in common when it comes to our views of Smarty Mart and other such things. What a thoroughly entertaining character in that lad! He looked great, his voice was great, and he was as cute as can be. And freeing the otters! Loved that!
I loved the bonding between Drakken and Lucre. It's amazing whom Dr. D will bond with. He truly had a sweet soul, doesn't he? Lucre was pathetic, Dr. Drakken was all over it, and it was just great chemistry between the two. I also loved Shego's jealousy over it.
I think the icing on the cake for me was the romance between Martin Smarty and Shego. I think it's just a little below my Sharkin. It just worked, and hey, she actually was with him when she was herself. Even if the appearance of potential "new son!" scared her off and the whole thing was based around his wealth. But hey, Shego is the classic gold digger.
Not perfect in my eyes, but extremely funny. Just wished it had a little more Kim.

Neither great nor horrible. It was just...there.
A few points:
- Artie aka Shawn 2.0. Of course, he'd be the one to save the day. Typical. - Frugal Lucre...not exactly ruined, but not quite as funny as he was in "Low Budget" or in this season's earlier episodes. Still, some funny bits between he and Drakken. - Barkin was pretty funny. - Is it just me, or was Kim barely in this episode?
The Drakken/Lucre stuff rocked, but too little Kim hurt the episode. Still a good one though. I'm leaning towards a 3/5, and here's a set of my favorite quotes from the episode.
Ron: Teeny Tiny Tasty Bits is neither teeny nor tiny! Drakken: Acronyms are very handy when texting your BFFs. Artie: Hey little nude dude! Shego: Blow on him to get his attention. Drakken: Stop asking questions and STOP TOUCHING ME! Shego, remove him! Stop blowing my… Drakken: Shego, you hear that, I’m getting my props here! Drakken: BAD APPRENTICE! BAD! NO TOUCHY! Ron: With great pets comes great responsibilities. Shego: Excuse me, I seem to be lost… and out of my mind. Smarty: Ms… Wobackoff… yeah… clever… Ron: I’m taking you off my robo buddy list! Artie: Go my metallic brothers! STICK IT TO THE MAN! Ron: Pushing buttons makes them mad! Drakken: A villian has many choices to defeat a foe. I prefer… Kim: …Yammering. Drakken: AH, THE PINK WEASAL’S GOT IT! Drakken: AH, NOW WE’RE BOTH BEING TOUCHED!

I'm here and my review is here. I wondered if anybody would noticed. I would have had a review up by 10:30 last night but my cousins were at my house for most of yesterday and brought their Wii over and we played their Wii for most of that day. But, I made sure I was alone when I watched the episode but it still felt weird because my mother and my cousins watched it in another room. I wouldn't let them watch with me. Anyways, I decided to wait until 11:00 at night to write the Review and here I am now, tired after playing Wii bowling:
5/5 22 predictions correct
An insane twenty three minutes is the only way to describe “The Mentor of Our Discontent.” It loses points for the long title but gains points for being funny, insane, giving me the great high that I always get watching a KP episode, and for referencing previous episodes such as So The Drama, Low Budget, and The Big Job.
So, this episode is about Ron being charged with the job to be role model for Martin Smarty’s punk of a sun who is about 8 to 14 years old. And all the while that Drakken, Shego, and the amazingly annoying Frugal Lucre, played by Richard Kind, who is an annoying person anyway are doing villainous stuff with robots, which we all know are evil by themselves.
Some of the highlights of the episode:
*The evil robots that Barkin did not trust (and for good reason!) *Martin Smarty calling Ron Smart. I think I was shocked. *Martin’s son Artie who had a punk feel about him that made me think of John Connor in Terminator 2. *Drakken using acronyms. *Frugal Lucre and the references to Low Budget. *Shego doing everything to annoy Drakken *4000 Smarty Mart’s are now worldwide? 2 years ago (four years ago if you go by the airdate of Low Budget!), there were 3000. *The baby otters! They were so cute I could cry! *The great stampede of animals. Impressive but I was spoiled in 1994 by the Wildebeest Stampede in The Lion King. No wild stampede of animals will ever beat that, ever. *The continuity in Shego and Martin Smarty’s relationship. *Shego distracting Martin Smarty in a seducing type of way. I have always wanted to see that in a KP episode. So much! *Shego likes hydragenas? *Kim coming out of the flowers! *Kim and Shego playing chicken in their fighting on top of the Security guys! Classic! *Martin Smarty being infatuated with Shego. *Kim kicking robot arse with the grappling hook. *Martin Smarty: “He’s more rebel than boy now!” I got the Star Wars reference so quickly I screamed, “YAY! STAR WARS!” *The insane battle in Smarty Mart. *The “I’m not touching you!” joke. My favorite joke ever. *Kim and Ron kissing kind of offscreen. Cuteness. At least it’s happened once.
I adored everyone carrying the baby otters, how adorable does Ron look?!
Show's that he's good at caring for things! And he was really good with Artie too. Before Artie set them free, Ron gave him responsibility of the otters saying that "There's no better way to learn how to make good choices than to care for another living thing".
God, I was so hot for Ron at that point! He'd make such a great Dad!

Just finished watching the episode on DVR, and I have to admit it was fun. Poor Ron has to babysit Mr. Smarty's son Arty while Frucre teams up with Drakken to try to control all the Smarty Marts' Stockbots to make, yet another, robot army.
I do like the last few minutes where they all fought to get the remote control. Rufus flying through the message tubes seems to be a nod to Futurarma. He's smart enough to escape into those tubes, like when he wants to get away from Ron and Kim kissing. ;D
You know what? Fucre does come off appearing gay. I mean really, he tried to kiss Drakken and hug him, etc. Least Shego had some laughs at Drakken's expense.
As for pairings, too bad Shego wouldn't put up with Arty, or else she would have retired from villainary as Mrs. Smarty. ;D
Speaking of Shego, great to see her in her green bathing suit again, and nods to her to remind Drakken about the Diablo disaster. Good nod to "StD" there.
Yeah, so they didn't show the K/R kiss. Least this time they did kiss even though we only saw Rufus's reaction to it. I have a feeling they're going to wait for the finale to show them kissing again.
So, as I said, it was fun. Not as a great as many of the other episodes (Like "Big Bother" for me! ;D) of the season. I rate this a 4.5/5, thus round it to 5.
Hmmm... I'm thinking that if Rufus ever make a mole rat colony, they would have transportation tubes like in this episode. It works for mole rats.
