Childrens Hospital - Season 5

This season starts with Dr. Blake Downs coming back from the dead and Childrens Hospital temporarily relocating to an army base in Japan. Dr. Sprat becomes a secret agent, Sy fakes a five-star restaurant to hoodwink a famous hospital reviewer, and it all comes together in a violent, gory battle of compatriot against compatriot. I hate that I have seen every episode of this show because I miss new Childrens Hospital so badly.

I tried to write about how stupid a character Revolver Ocelot is, but every description I came up with made him sound awesome, so I'll just leave you with this video.
