"Game Plan" is definitely in my top 5 episodes of Season 1 and hovers dangerously close to making the top 5 of ALL episodes over the two seasons combined!Negator was an awesome villain in his debut appearance and the plot device of the video game was great. Now that I'm older and viewing these again, you can hear Battlecat PERFECTLY describe Ram Man's character (as he's trying to simply describe Ram Man's method of opening an air vent). Overall, a great non-Skeletor episode.
