There's one thing about the Henry Danger series that's really pretty good--they pay a lot of homage to classic movies and TV shows. They did an outstanding job with a vintage Star Trek episode a few years ago and they'll thrown a full effort into this show, RUBBER DUCK which is a salute to the Tom Cruise movie RISKY BUSINESS. They cleverly eliminated or replaced the profanity and sexuality of the original film. Even the title Rubber Duck is a funny substitution for a memorable phrase from the Cruise movie.
This episode is also the first time in a long time that they allowed their principal actors to act. Lately the show has bordered on just silly with Henry and Ray talking over each other's lines. But Henry (Jace Norman) was allowed to act and so was his buddy Jasper (Sean Ryan Fox). The normally goofy Jasper character was given the chance to be the bad boy and he did a fine job. Jace is just waiting to explode into some serious acting. Until then, I hope they give the young actors more to do than just being silly. This episode was well produced, well written, and well performed.
It's been a while.
