    "I Fought the Law" is an excellent episode that sets the tone for the rest of the season. It was quite noticeable in the two-part opener that Instant Star has a darker look to it and "I Fought the Law" makes the show look awesome. Kudos to the director of photography. It's also a well-written and well-acted episode. Alexz Johnson plays Jude as a confused young girl who feels like she needs to rebel and Tyler Kyte is quickly proving himself worthy of his character's larger role. Zoie Palmer, or Patsy, comes off a little one-dimensional but that's more the writer's fault than hers. Also, Kristopher Turner does great with his new Jamie-is-a-jerk thing. (By the way, why did Liam fire Jamie from being Speiderman's manager only to give him a job at G Major?) All the characters are set into motion for their arcs this season and Kat even gets to come back. Now if we could only get rid of Patsy....moreless
  • Jude is getting into lots of trouble in this episode. She feels the need to redeem herself by getting drunk and acting like a real Rock Star.

    This is Jude always to trying to prove people wrong. She wanted to be a bad girl with Patsy and got into serious trouble.At the end she shows guts by going on at a concert when noone wants her there. Jamie especially didn\'t think she could pull this off and as usual she had to prove him wrong. This episode was good but not the greatest
  • Jude loses her voice but she finds it again when she meets Patsy, Kat is back, Jamie is the new A&R and another Jude Tommy moment at the end. GREAT EPISODE!!!moreless

    "I Fought The Law" is an example of what all Instant Star episodes should be. Jude is not getting everything easy like she was in Season 1. Plus, Jude, Kat and Jamie are all growing up. And Jude has a crush on Spiderman!!!! OMG! Spiderman is hot! I can't not wait to Miss World!

    • (Tommy and Jude watching the video of Jude performing at the Shock Festival)
      Tommy: Now there is a girl Cash would have approved of, there is a girl with the guts to play Folsom Prison, no problem.
      Jude: There is a girl who is glad beer is good for your hair. Makes it soft.
      Tommy: I used to use it as cologne.
      Jude: Oh, okay, so that explains why girls have to be drinking age to date you.
      (After a short pause where Tommy is visibly uncomfortable)
      Tommy: So, I guess you got that big frog out of your throat on Shock FM'S time, huh?
      Jude: Yeah, most of it.
      Tommy: Well, you better finish defrogging fast cause we got that whole sophomore album to start. (He lovingly rumples up her hair) Hm, beer does make it softer.

    • Jude: But Spiederman-
      Kat: Oh my gosh! You're in love with the guy we used to make fun of in kindergarten?
      Jude: Love? What? Ok bite your tongue. Bite your whole mouth. No. No. Kat, he made fun of me today.
      Kat: So we send him flowers in intensive care.

    • Jude: There's no encore, so you all can shove it!

    • Jude's Dad: Malicious mischief, destruction of public property, consumption of alcohol by a minor, and impersonation with the intent to gain advantage. Do you have anything to say for yourself Jude 'Andrews?'

    • Patsy: Don't be mad. Be merciless.

    • Jude: (voiceover) In the last 48 hours, I nearly lost my record contract, actually lost my boyfriend. Still, they say what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, so I guess I should be worrying. Too bad I can barely squeak.

    • Spiederman: Come on Harrison. You gave up faster than Wally's deodorant.

    • Spiederman: Hey over-rated!
      Jude: You think I'm over-rated, Skid mark? How about you tell you tell your new girlfriend here that no one even likes you on the tour bus. We only keep you around because you're an ok guitar player. Or how about that fact that you wear the same Ninja Turtle pajamas every single night! Just had to say that. (to Patsy) You rock. (to Jamie) You, no.
      Jude walks away
      Spiederman: They were Thunder cats pajamas.

      Spiederman: Well Vin, by blow you mean suck, then yes. I suck harder than an airplane toilet.
      Kyle: Sounds to me like you're clogged up.
      Spiederman: You. You're clogged up. So there!
      Jude: Wow. You guys always know exactly what I need to hear.

    • Jude: I sound like Lisa Simpson.
      Tommy: You could try a little less constipation, a little more Joplin.
