  • Why defeat the entire population when you can defeat about half of it?

    Simply a very funny episode overall. Wade invents a love ray to get Monique to like him except that it only works for a short time. Ron also seems to forget what is February is best known for. Meanwhile the Seniors get a hold of it by raiding Wade's room by posing as people dropping off flowers for his mom by his dad. They plan on using it for getting as many females to fall in love with Junior as possible. So they have a free concert for women only. Ron and Wade also sneak in dressed as females in order to act as backup. Turns out Monique is flattered that Wade likes her, but Wade then finds another girl who is a super genius like him and uses her own love ray device on him.moreless
  • One word: Boring!!!!!

    This episode was downright boring! There really wasn't nothing much to it, just an episode where love conquers all meaning that Wade wanted Monique to fall in love with him because he liked her. This wasn't anything special, like a bad Valentine's Day episode on February 14th or whenever it played. This reminded me of the Danny Phantom episode, "Fanning the Flames" because it was about Ember's ghostly music making Danny fall in love with Sam. This episode had more action and fighting. I believe that this is possibly the most boring episode of Kim Possible I've watch. On this show, I'm really into the fighting, humor, and romance, but it just didn't do it for me this time.moreless
  • Interesting episode

    We're starting to see Wade outside more. Wade who has always been mature is begining to mature in a different way. But unfortunatelly when he realizes that he can't woo Monique, he makes something that would hypnotize her into liking her. When the ray is stolen by Junior he then realizes that what he has been doing was wrong and that you can't force someone to like you. Then it isn't really love. Everything ends well though when he finds love again with someone his own age. Well, except for the fact that she's a child genius as well and can do the same thing that he did to Monique.moreless
  • Wade creates a love ray to make Monique fall in love with him.

    Wade falls in love with Monique, but she isn't interested, so Wade creates a love ray to make her fall in love with him. But what happens when Senor Senior Senior gets a hold of it?

    This is good example of what can happen if you mess with love. The running gags in the episode of Kim and Ron getting interupted everytime they kiss was funny to watch. Even though this episode was well written and Monique and Kim screaming for Junior after the love ray hit them was hilarious, but there just wasn't much action in this episode, and I like episodes with action! The storyline was carefully plotted, though I felt the ending when Wade mashes the love ray was rather rushed, but all in all, it was nice to see Senior and Junior acting stupid once again...moreless
  • Romance is overrated. Don't believe me? Exhibit A:

    Well, it’s Valentine’s day, and the first that Kim and Ron are celebrating as a couple. Unfortunately, Monique has no one for herself. Enter Wade, who develops a ludicrously convenient crush on her. The advice he seeks from romantic greenhorn Ron ends up failing, so Wade does what any of us would do in the same situation: invent a love ray that will make the girl fall madly in love with him.

    It’s nice that Wade is getting out of his room, but if this is how he’s going to act, I suggest putting him back and keeping him there for the rest of his life. Seriously, he lost a lot of sympathy points with me every time he used the "Bun Warmer" on an unsuspecting (and, dare I say, vulnerable) Monique.

    But there has to be a villain for every episode and so we see an appearance by the Seniors, who stumble onto the technology to produce their own neurological Rufie Ray and create a legion of screaming female admirers for Junior’s pop star career.

    There’s an amusing "Wrath of Khan" reference, as well as the (sadly) unforgettable sight of Ron and Wade in drag. To say this episode is a mess is an insult to messes.

    In terms of holiday episodes, they really bottomed out with this one.moreless

  • NOTES (0)


    • Ron: So we hit a SNAFU. Thats okay, we'll try it again.

      SNAFU is an army term originating around 1941 that means Situation Normal All F**ked Up. Much like similar psuedo swear words, this term has become acceptable in common conversation and simply means a badly confused or ridiculously muddled situation, or to be in disorder or out of control.

    • This is Spinal Tap:

      In the TV spot for The Ear Splitters the announcer says they are "The loudest band on the planet." Being the "loudest band in the world" was Spinal Tap's claim to fame in the famous mockumentary.

    • Some Like it Hot:

      The scene in which Ron and Wade have to dress up as girls to gain admittance to a ladies only concert is an homage to a similar plot from the classic 1959 teen movie, Some Like it Hot, with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon.

    • Senor Senior Sr: Together, we will chase it around perdition's flame. . .

      This was a famous line by Captain Ahab from the classic novel Moby Dick by Herman Melville. It was also used in a modified version in the famous movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, which starred Ricardo Montalban, the voice of Senor Senior Sr.
