  • Casey is humiliated after she falls down a flight of stairs.

    9.0
    This episode was a funny episode compared to the other Season 1 episodes. Casey looked mega-hot when she was working out. I loved when she fell on the guy's butt. It also revealed that she liked Sam. Also in this episode Sam finds out that Casey is Derek's step sister. It must of been embarassing when she fell inside the house when Sam was there. It made me happy that George gave Casey that pep talk. Derek was such a jerk! It warmed my heart when Lizzie talked to Derek & he helped. She cried a lot in this episode. This episode was one of my favorites.moreless
  • Awww, poor Casey!

    7.0
    I did not really much care for this episode, because of everyone teasing and hurting poor Casey. This episode made me cry. She fell down the steps, and nobody asked her if she was alright. They just laughed at her and made stupid jokes about her. The same for the other few times she fell. All people did was laugh at her and make nasty jokes about her. It's amazing how little some people care about others. I'm glad Casey was alright physically, but I felt sooooo sorry for her when everyone did nothing but pick on her and hurt her feelings. Aww, poor Casey! I would've done the right thing and cared that she could've gotten hurt. Poor thing!moreless
  • We discover Casey is a klutz around boys she likes and that Derek actually has a soul.

    9.0
    In the second episode of the first season, we learn that Casey is a klutz. Especially around boys she likes. To be specific, Derek's best friend Sam.



    After falling down the stairs at school, Casey is nicknamed Klutizilla and made fun of by other students. Originally she blames Derek for this but later (after a second fall, this time at home in the kitchen) Derek figures out it's because both times he was with Sam and she likes him.



    The main part of the show is entertaining but I loved the ending. Derek finally puts a stop to her teasing, by telling the entire school (by word of mouth) that he's her step-brother and having Sam stop Casey from making an embarassing speech in the hallway about how teasing hurts.



    This is the first (but far from last) example of Derek's "stay loyal to the family" trait. Derek will use Edwin, fight with Casey and manipulate the situation to get his way within the family. But as soon as someone from *outside* the family messes with any member of it, he gets upset and puts an end to it.moreless
  • Derek can get a little annoying and we see a better side of Casey

    8.9
    This being the second episode, we still get a feeling that the show is more stronlgy focused on Casey. With Derek being the brother that saves the day in the end, makes it all worthwhile. Casey actually looks pretty hot in her workout routine and we learn can tell that Sam and Casey have a thing for each other. Marti was practically non-existant in this episode as well. The best part of the episode is when Casey cries. The writers show a softer side that they have been straying from since this episode which is a pity. Also I think Edwin had one speaking line lolmoreless
  • Enjoyable.

    10
    Enjoyable. This was the best episode of Life With Derek. It was very comical and it showed the stuggles of Casey and Derek. Casey did get her revenge at Derek at the end, showing that that "good guys" sometims do win!



    In this episode, Casey is upset that her step brother, Derek made fun of her when she fell. She talks to other people, hearing other stories about there embarrasing moments. Casey thinks that Derek is responsible for her recent trippings, but Derek reminds Casey of another common elemet in her trippings. Derek's best friend Sam was witnessing all of Casey's trippings.



    This is the first episode Casey shows interest in Sam.moreless
