For an episode that was largely a copy of an earlier crisis, Cells at Work still managed to bring its A Game, give us a enough new information that it didn’t feel like a waste, and it was just great fun.
Well I admitted last week that I like Cells at Work the most when it is being cute and focusing on Red Blood Cell and this week certainly did that. While the monster of the week is almost a rehash, we do get a minor variation and a slightly different conclusion so there’s enough fun with the plot, but mostly it was just great fun watching Red go about her daily business and continue to be a magnet for every germ and invader in the body. The many platelet sequences this week also added to the cute factor and it was all just fun.
That said, I think we’re finally at the point in the season where the novelty of anthropomorphised blood cells has slightly worn thin and the repetition in the story-line is pretty established. While I’m still enjoying this show I’m actually fairly glad to know that there’s only three more episodes because I’m not sure how much longer they can stretch this concept. Still, it lasted a lot longer than I expected after the first episode and I do not regret a single moment of watching Red and White going about their business and running into platelets.
