Taco - I thought this was just okay.

Get me to the Job on Time - I loved the premise that someone would use something so earth-shattering as time travel to never be late. As a perpetually late person, I can really relate. But then, as a curious scientists, I would NOT be able to stop at just that. :)

Hibernation - This was hilarious. It took me a while to understand what was going on, but by the time we got to the punch line, I was caught up and ready to appreciate the joke. I particularly like that the bears found themselves another, more suitable gig afterwards. Well done.
