Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Nothing special.

    I only watch ENGLAND and the ending of AWARDS.

    ENGLAND: Numbuh 1 goes to England with his dad on a business trip and gets into trouble when a boy gives him a book which is claimed to be the book of KND.

    This episode certainly does not deserve second place. ENGLAND was predictable from the start.

    • Numbuh One was born in England, but he moved to America with his family when he was three years of age.

      Father: Let me tell you something, the next time I see Stickybeard, he better run to his candy closet, CAUSE IM NOT SUGAR COATING THE HURTING HE'S GONNA GET!
      Reporter: And there's Stickybeard now (Father looks nervous and jumps behind the reporter as Stickybeard walks up, also coved in mucus)!

    • British KND Operative' Scarves

      The way the female British KND Operative uses her scarves as tentacle-like weapons is an allusion to Doctor Octopus, a villain from Spider-Man. He was played by Alfred Molina in the movie Spider-Man 2.

      The scarf itself and her outfit appears to be a reference to the 4th incarnation of the Doctor from the British TV Series Doctor Who, as played by Tom Baker.

    • The episode segment of A.W.A.R.D.S. is based on the movie Ocean 11.
