  • Halloween Review #28

    5.5
    Hawk steals Big Time Rush's only hard-drive of their second album, the boys, Gustavo and Kelly try to get it back. They go to Hawk Records to retrieve their songs but they end up getting caught and are sent to jail. Fortunately, Kelly manages to bail them out, but they are warned that if they are seen anywhere near Hawk Records, they will be sent to jail again - with no chance of bail. Thus, the boys decide to take on super-hero personas so that technically 'they' will not be near Hawk Records. James becomes 'Bandana Man' (again), Kendall becomes 'The Slapshot', a hockey-based superhero, Carlos becomes 'El Hombre Del Flaming Space Rock Man', his 'Meteor Man alter-ego (also from the first series), Logan becomes 'The Surgeon!', and Gustavo becomes Super Gustavo. Although Kelly decides to become 'Bowlhead'; she was totally against the idea and couldn't find anything better in the pile. This isn't a Halloween episode but Nickelodeon promotes it as a Halloween special so I'll review it anyways. This episode wasn't that good to be honest. While there were some funny and enjoyable parts, this episode is nowhere near as good as some of the other Season 2 episodes. Well, at least this episode isn't as bad as "Big Time Strike". The first half of this episode was very weak and kinda horrid to watch but it actually got better by the second half. They got very slow with the whole superhero storyline though. I mean, the guys were only superheroes in the last 6 minutes of the episode which made it disappointing. The subplot was pretty funny but also really gross. The main plot with Hawk getting revenge on Gustavo and Big Time Rush really wasn't amusing. Hawk was just irritating more than any other episodes he appeared in. Overall, this episode wasn't that good but it wasn't the worst which is a good thing. 5.5/10moreless
