** There's no denying that Jim Starling is an egotistical jerkass, but given his current situation it's hard not to pity him. To recap, his career as an actor went down the toilet after ''Darkwing Duck'' was canceled and he's since been unable to find work outside of making public appearances at furniture store openings that only a ''very'' small number of fans even bother to show up for, and even fewer who stick around to get an autograph from him. Then he finds out that his show is being remade as a major film, except nobody invited him to be involved or even bothered to tell him the movie was in production so he naturally acts with hostility over being a replaced with another actor. Unable to accept that he was passed over in favor of somebody younger, he desperately tries shoehorning himself into the movie through both unethical and unlawful means, which sours the opinion two of his most loyal fans have for him and slowly drives him to insanity. Once he manages to pose as Drake in the movie's finale, he goes into a full-on VillainousBreakdown when he's instructed to surrender to the picture's villain instead of being the triumphant hero like in his show, leading him to trash the set and put the film crew in danger as he tries to take command over the movie himself. And even when Launchpad and Drake manage to make him see what he's making himself into, his act of saving them from an imminent explosion is cruelly repaid by him getting caught in the blast radius, which shatters his sanity completely and leads him to become this show's incarnation of Darkwing Duck's most lethal foe.

** Not long before this episode aired, Creator/JimCummings was hit by allegations of domestic and animal abuse by his ex-wife, which give Starling's descent into madness and pure evil and Launchpad's loss of admiration for him [[RealitySubtext a frightening new dimension]]. [[note]]The judge in the case dismissed the charges, though the judge chastised both Cummings and his ex for being more concerned with dragging each other through the mud than worrying about their kids.[[/note]]

** One regarding complaints about TheOtherDarrin that fans often have: the actor you know and love can't be around forever. A replacement actor isn't necessarily a bad choice for the role just because they're not the actor you're accustomed to. Chances are they love the character and the franchise just as much as you do, and are eager to give it their all, well aware that they have big shoes to fill.

** This episode does a good job of criticizing every aspect of a reboot. An executive whose only concern is money doesn't have the skills needed to make a good movie. The director needs to have a clear understanding of why this property resonated with people in the first place. And the fans need to accept that they don't "own" a franchise, and that changes can be made without sacrificing what made something work.
