Good, but not as good as the rest of the show
5 February 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Another strong episode, but not one of the better ones.

The problem with the episode is that it goes by too fast and is not as memorable as most of the other episodes. I like it more than 'Beers & Weirs', but the rest is stronger.

The Freak storyline mostly involved Nick proving his lameness to Lindsay. They are hanging out more, and he is madly in love with her but the feelings are not mutual. The only reason Lindsay kissed him in the first place was out of pity. And now she's going out with him only to make him feel better.

The Geek's storyline is a lot more fun, I never liked Sam much but Bill's part of the story is hilarious as always. He becomes lab partners with Cindy and finds out that she's not as perfect as Sam wishes she'd be. She's actually quite boring. I like Gordon's part, the smelly overweight kid. He and Sam became lab partners and friends.

THREE stars for this episode, good, but not as good as the rest of the show.
