TV Review: Hulk and the Agents of SMASH, "Stranger in a Strange Land"
03/30/2014 - 9:17pm
Another hilarious and rollicking episode of Hulk and the Agents of SMASH as Rick Jones aka the Great Abombo learns magic -- real magic -- from Earth's
Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange (apparently in need of a haircut).
It starts off with Rick assuming Wong's duties at Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum and ends up a bit like Mickey Mouse in the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment of Fantasia. Everything goes awry and Strange must rescue his overzealous acolyte.
But then, in seeking to take another in a never-ending series of short cuts, Rick interrupts the doctor as he is battling Dormammu who is trying to come into our dimension. Dormammu reaches through a giant hand, grabs the doc and vanishes.
Attempting to reverse the spell to open the mystic doorway, Rick and the Hulk enter the Dark Dimension, battle with the Mindless Ones and actually do rescue Dr. Strange.
But Dormammu follows them through the open doorway and it is up to Rick to remember the small things he learned from the doctor, the household cleaning spells and such, that eventually vanquish Dormammu, sweeping him away from our dimension.
Abomb is actually the hero!
This episode is rife with in-jokes, the usual magic hilarity and so many things from Doc Strange's world tucked in that it is a joy to watch a second time.
