Synopsis: Burt leads the Perfection community in another fight against the latest incarnation of graboids

Reaction: The newest evolutionary step for the graboids brings a bit to the story, and Burt is always interesting to watch, but parts of this story just seem a bit bland and toned down. Otherwise enjoyable, though.

Personal Rating: 6/10
