    good episode, not great but it did have its fair share of good moments, and so my grade is a low "B", good episode, but not greatmoreless
  • Jake Ryan returns to reveal to Miley that he is dating Mikaylah, Hannah's nemesis.

    As a series guilty of stealing too many scripts from old Lucy episodes, it's a breath of relief when when plot comes up that seems almost original. The annoyingly unrealistic Jake Ryan is back to set Miley and Lily up for another-Lucy and-Ethel moment. Instead of just doing the logical thing and just telling Jake she hates Mikhaylah and warning him of what she's really like, Miley opens up a whole potential for "jealously" issues. This direction allows for Mikaylah to actually being a bit more human. She actually shines on Miley and acts a bit more endearing for once, wanting to open up on Miley on her deep-seated hatred for Hannah, Miley's alter-ego. That's a nice spin we don't get much to see. Selena Gomez actually shows some acting chops playing Mikayla, not much so on her other series. In the sub-plot, Jackson and Oliver get sucked into another Riko scheme, but this time, you can't really feel sorry for them because they were actually stupid enought to jump into it blindly. I mean, if Riko has as much money as he seems, he should have been able to just move into a hotel, but neither Jackson or Oliver realize this and they set themselves up. Overall, it's a fun and amusing episode still straining to reach some potential, but the plot points and execution just aren't that amusing.moreless
  • Great Episode..♥ But not a REALLY REALLY great one.. ♥

    This episode was really exciting for Selena Gomez (Mikayla) to come!! Miley tried to be Mikayla in a Alien suite which made it more fun to watch! When Jake told Miley "I just want to be friends"..It made it more more fun to watch because you know something is going to happen with Miley, like she is going to come up with a plan, and she did! But some parts were not exactly what i need for a episode, like at the end! you know Mikayla is going to find out because thats what happens in nearly every episode of 'Hannah Montana'. But the rest was a Very Good Example..♥♥moreless
  • This episode reminded me a lot of I Love Lucy.

    Jake comes back and tells Miley he just wants to be friends. Miley agrees. Miley finds out that Jake is filming a movie with Mikayla. He was going to ask for Hannah Montana to be his co-star, but he thought it would ruin the new just being friends thing since he has to kiss his co-star in almost every scene. Miley is jealous so she has Lilly help her try to get Mikayla fired. Miley dresses up in Mikayla's costume and acts really rude. The plan backfires on her when Mikayla comes out. Jake is mad at Miley, but after they talk Miley tells him this time it's time for her to grow up.moreless
  • Jake's back...

    Jake comes back and askes Miley to be his friend. Miley agrees, but when she finds out an old rival of hers is going to play with Jake in a movie, she becomes jelous. . . so, Miley schemes to make her rival get fired, but she just embarrasses herself instead. Meanwhile, Oliver and Jackson stop cleaning themselves. They were so dirty and it was disgusting, but mildly funny. Overall, Miley's story line was stupid and ridiculous. Jackson and Oliver's story was sort of interesting and a bit funny. Overall, not a very good episode though. It could have been a lot better.moreless
