Zack writes the "Ask Shirley" advice column on the school newspaper. He gives advice to his crush, Darlene, to ask him out.
26 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cody becomes in charge of the school newspaper, and assigns Zack to the "Ask Shirley" advice column. He gives advice to his crush to ask him out. London cannot sleep at night so she has Maddie, Mr. Moseby, Mrs. Martin, and Estaban helping her with her sleeping problem. Personally, I felt that the London's half of the show was quite boring. I felt like fast-forwarding the parts. It wasn't very gripping. On the other hand, Zack's love story caught me in, and there was a good use of funny punch lines. The ending was a little disappointing, but left a smile on my face. Ask Zack is an episode you wouldn't want to miss, and it was worth the wait.
