  • One of the funniest, most bizarre-yet normal episodes ever made, even if it did spawn one of the creepiest pairings known to man.

    It happens at least once a year in most high schools - something catches on for no good reason. How long that thing stays trendy is always up for debate and uncertain, but at the time it always seems like a big deal. This is the case with Animalogy. Like normal teenagers, everyone picks up on it fairly quick, and with strong results like certain girls not sitting with one another because of what they got. This element of reality, although taken a little farther than is realistic, is what made it so fun to watch. Kim's perfectionism was nicely and smoothly emphasized in this episode, along with giving Junior some more development and screen time. The entirety of it was funny in a subtler way than is typical of a Disney series. But more than being funny, it spawned one of the most bizarre, humorous pairings in existence: KimJunior. The mild shock factor of him being her 'soulmate' was funny within itself; that it took him THAT long to put two and two together was even better. Some fans have taken this episode as 'proof' of the already-in-existance but at the time little known pairing. Personally, I find it funny the way a car crash is funny. And the end of the episode was fairly open, leaving Junior's feelings still lovey but not clearly stating how Kim felt. That's good, because, well, quite frankly I hate endings where the characters end up doing something specific. This way, there's some wonder left as to her feelings, and it ended on a semi-funny note. Even when Junior is trying to be romantic, it's enough to crack me up. He so clearly thinks Kim is going to be amazingly impressed with his speech... I hate to use this term, but, well, lol. Lol to the inth degree.
