    Benchwarmer: Arnold and his friends play basketball on the team, but Coach Wittenberg insists the only play they will use is to pass the ball to his son Tucker. Arnold is upset because that is not fair play. Another decent episode of the show. I just the episode entertaining to watch rather than funny. I enjoyed the storyline to the episode but it was getting boring. I only laughed twice here...Grandpa's appearance in this episode and the boys using a stregory to win (and they already did). Overall, an entertaining episode to watch. 7/10



    Cool Jerk: A cool guy becomes friends with Arnold when the kids are fighting against him. However, Arnold then realizes that Frankie is a criminal. A little better than Benchwarmer but it still has its problems. I liked the idea of the episode but then it went downhill when Arnold realize that his new friend is a criminal. Frankie was becoming a jerk after that but I'm glad Gerald saved Arnold. I laughed at some parts like the ball at Harold, Frankie stopping then stopping him from bullying Arnold, montage of Frankie and Arnold hanging out, the guys make loud burps while Arnold's quiet, and Gerald using a siren. Overall, a great episode of Hey Arnold. 8.5/10moreless
