AllMusic Review by

Ten years after the release of the first Nick Danger piece (on the How Can You Be Two Places at Once... album), Firesign Theatre is back with an extended play containing five short episodes of a new Nick Danger adventure, complete with fake commercials. Unlike the previous adventure, it's spread over two whole sides but only clocks in at about 12 minutes. That's still enough time to fit in return visits from Rocky Rococo and Lieutenant Bradshaw, and introduce a love interest and feature an argument with the scriptwriters. There's all the wordplay you've come to expect, and even if some of the gags fall a bit flat, it's still an enjoyable 12 minutes, but it leaves one question unanswered: What happened to Lieutenant Bradshaw's voice?
