When the Amazon Modelling Agency approaches Ms Li to give a free
modelling class to select students; with the possibility of one student
getting a modelling contract she agrees... in return for money to
install bulletproof skylights in the pool! Daria is horrified that
something like this should be allowed at school but Quinn sees it as a
great opportunity. The class doesn't quite go according to plan as Ms
Li is shocked when she walks in on the class and finds the modelling
recruiters have got the girls pawing shirtless boys... this is nothing
like the shock she receives when school assembly is interrupted by
group of mercenary recruiters who believe she had invited them... it
isn't hard to guess who really invited them (and the media)!
This isn't a classic episode as the main story isn't as interesting as most; it did have a decent number of laughs though; the ending was pretty hilarious even if it was ridiculous. We also learn why Daria has a room with padded walls which was something I'd wondered about. The modelling recruiters were somewhat cliché but produced some chuckles... I dread to think what one of them was having done to her while she was on the phone to Helen! Overall this episode was funny enough but if you miss it you don't have to worry that you missed a something special.
A fly-by-night modeling school has convinced Ms. Li (in other words,
they paid her) to let them come to Lawndale High to pitch their 'free
modeling class'. Quinn is thrilled as she has visions of huge success
as does Brittany. Unfortunately, the one they wanted was neither--and
certainly NOT the one you'd expect. As for Daria, she's mostly absent
from the episode as she follows Quinn but just sits on the sidelines
and watches all the shallowness.
As I said in the summary, this one seemed weak. Part of it was because of Daria not being THE central character in the story but most of it seemed because the show just wasn't that funny. Ironic, yes...funny, no. In addition, it's a rather contrived idea for the show. Not terrible but certainly a bit disappointing for a normally brilliant series. I guess you can't win 'em all.
