Yes, also the bad episodes get the change to be discussed. This is one of the worst episodes of the series. I mean, Bluesky & Raincloud could also had make some appearances in the third season. Two grifters, working for Watership Down (at least, in the end of the episode, I could think this is possible).

But so, it looks like the creators had to fill the season with 13 episodes. So we could say, this is really given away potential.

Ah, this is the episode when the actor voicing Bluesky doesn't have much success in sounding different than the other rabbit he voices (namely Vervain). :D That might be the reason why we don't see two conman rabbits later in the series. Imagine Bluesky and Vervain meeting and talking. In that case it would be impossible to disguise the fact they are voiced by the same person.

Like Cowslip and Kehaar shared the same voice actor in the third season? :p

Well, some of the voice actors changed in the third season, so using another voice actor for Bluesky shouldn't have been the problem ;)

BTW: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone have the same dubber in Germany and both are appearing in the Expendables-movies.

They did? I didn't know that.

So they have one person literally talking to himself in the movie? :D

I'm pretty sure, that Cowslip and Kehaar had the same voice actor in season 3. :)

This is the only episode that has bored half the series for me. Precisely for these two characters: Bluesky and raincloud, do nothing, are not funny, they are annoying and ugly XD. The only good thing is that they are cannon fodder for Efrafa hehehe
But the rest of the characters are great as always. And Pipking learned to fly.  :pipkin  yay
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Oh, this is definitely a bad episode (that seems to be a staple of Season 2, doesn't it?) but at least the "Mysterious Visitors" get a far better development than the bast majority of the characters inhabiting other non-memorable WSD episodes, and that alone prevents the episode from sinking into mediocrity. I mean, the guys are not Aspen by any stretch of the imagination, but are also far away from becoming the new sheep. So they have that going for them.

Would I watch it again? Sure, but with almost no expectations whatsoever. I don't think that my initial opinion on it it's gonna change in any favorable way.

I don't like this one more than the sheep episode. Simply, because it's put short before the great finale of the second season. The Campion-story was amazing and BAM, you have Bluesky, Raincloud and Sheeps :meh
