Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 30 review
Jojo starts off this week with… yes, you guessed it, more poop jokes. At this point I’m just expecting them, so I’m not going to complain about them at this point. I will say that the bathrooms I went to in rural Mexico were much better than these ones. Heck, they even had Wi-Fi!
Joseph gets magnetized by a Stand, causing everything metal to stick to him. At first it sounds like a pretty cool thing to have, but he’s not Magneto. Instead, he’s having any and every metal object flying at him. He’s so desperate he rushes to an escalator. Escalators, of course, are made of metal.
So Joseph finds himself crashing down the escalator, and his only hope is for Hermit Purple to hit the “Emergency Stop” button before he hits the bottom. (There is no “Reverse” button on this particular escalator.) Joseph starts screaming and crying as he hits the bottom. One problem: Avdol already pressed the “Emergency Stop” button. This leads to a fantastic, hilarious scene where Joseph is crying like a baby thinking that he’s dead as he sits at the bottom of a stopped escalator.
(True story: as I watched this episode, my mouth was full of gauze thanks to the oral surgery. It was so funny that I almost vomited all the gauze all over the place. This was perhaps even funnier than the Oingo Boingo moment a few weeks ago.)
More funny moments occur as Joseph gathers himself and pretends he’s an escalator inspector. Then Joseph and Avdol follow who they thought was the Stand user into the women’s bathroom. You can guess how that ends up.
After all that, Joseph and Avdol are both magnetized and sticking to each other when they’re trying to chase down the Stand user. That’s where we leave off, after a hilarious episode even if you don’t like poop jokes. Once again, Jojo proves it’s the “King of Comedy” on Saturday nights.
