User Reviews

Awesome and Honest.
2 May 2019 | by powermandanSee all my reviews

There are many components that make a musician great. This episode is about image over sound, something all-too popular today.

Stephanie and Gia are learning the guitar and bass, respectively. They decide to start a band. One of their beautiful classmates is recruited on drums and Kimmy takes the keyboard. The band is called "Girl Talk" and are invited by Danny and Becky to partake in their show's talent competition. Jesse is their manager and knows that they need to keep at it until it sounds perfect. But the girls, after one semi-decent play, decide they don't need to practice anymore any work on their image.

Danny and Joey use DJ's homework to play the stock market. Brief, but cute.

The music and the theme are both excellent. "Girl Talk" doing the Ace Of Base hit is both good and funny when they mess up. And the whole idea of all image and no sound is all there is in music today. This episode was back in 1995, long before computers and machines could completely fix everything.

Very well done!
