  • The battle of the babysitting.

    8.5
    I'm glad they finally incorporated Marti in to one of the story lines. Cause I thought the writers did excellent in this episode. And also besides the sibling rivalry. Derek & Casey both win. Casey gets a bigger profit on the babysitting money, and Derek gets the girl. We all knew Derek was a player, and it was so obvious he would pull a scam like this, pretend to be someone your not to get a girl, or use Marti as bait. I like how Edwin liked Sandra, also how Sandra wonders if Derek & Casey were dating; Maybe that's how Dasey started...moreless

    This episode was so cute! I love how they used Marti through almost the whole episode instead of a few secenes. The LWD writers need to make more Derek/Marti episodes like that. My reasons are: a. becuase Marti doesn\'t really get a lot of lines or scenes, and b. because it shows a different side of Derek thats you don\'t get to see too often. Marti is so sweet and I loved it when she made Derek look like a girl. Marti the Monster also shows that Derek can be responsible, and that you always don\'t have to ask Casey. The show gets a little boring when Casey does EVERYTHING, MTM gave Life with Derek a change.moreless
  • A decent episode.

    7.8
    This episode is quite an interesting one. Casey can't figure out why Derrick suddenly wants to babysit Marty, when earlier on he said he couldn't. He doesn't really want to babysit her, he wants to win the approval of a hot new girl at school. But this girl is a child loving, vegetarian, and cares about the environment. So he uses Marty as a lure for her to come over and try to win her approval (Which does happen; SPOILER. In the end they are kissing on the couch). It's a good character devolpment for Marty, we find out what she's like in the morning and in the evening; like most younger siblings, a pain in the butt!moreless
  • Marti is kinda a brat and Derek dresses like a woman.

    8.0
    I'm not going to lie, Derek and Marti are precious together. Especially when they are calling each other Smerek and Smarti.



    This scene had more than average number of scenes featuring the two and that's why I didn't completly write this episode off. Well, that and the fact that Derek totally dresses up like a girl for his little sister. Cause that was definitely awesome on so many levels. He was such a princess.



    Casey was more annoying than anything else in this episode. One of the few times that I couldn't actually stand her character. She went a little overboad with the feminism this time around for my taste.moreless
  • It's really good that Marti has a huge part in this huge episode.
