  • A good Kids in the Hall reunion episode.

    9.0
    Even if you have absolutley no idea who The Kids in the Hall are, it was still a morally good episode. It taught everyone that it really isn't good to lie. I could tell who was playing who right when this episode came out! I could tell that Scott Thompson was playing Pleakley's mom because Scott's voice sounded like the KITH character Fran, and Bruce McCulloch was definitley playing Pixley because his voice was portrayed to sound like the KITH character Kathy. With Dave and Mark, it was just a guess. Overall, this is a good episode for anyone who watches this show and Kids in the Hall.moreless
  • just a boring one....

    6.9
    the same im already married and planned marriage where the main character uses some ntcase shcheme to prove theyre already married is something done too many times now....



    well im only giving this episode a 6.9 score because of the other good aspects........



    if you like worn out plots then you should watch this you'll already know what is going to happen....
  • They showed a valuable lesson "Don't Lie"!

    9.4
    I feel like hearing a song whenever I watch this and experiments are cute anyway again.

    If the Black Eyed Peas would do a song it would be " Don't Lie "



    and I like this anyway!



    No no no no baby no no no no don't lie

    no no no no baby no no no no you gotta try

    what you gonna do when it all comes out when I see you what you're all about

    no no no baby no no no no don't lie!moreless
  • The old 'But I'm already married' facade? Seen it.

    5.1
    I'm not a fan of the 'arranged marriage' storyline we've all seen soooo many times. Sure, the plot works with the experiment's ability, but I don't think this experiment's function was invented for any other reason than to be in this episode.



    It's always nice to get to learn more about characters and see their backgrounds. Pleakley's family COULD have been done a lot worse. And parts of the episode were quite well written.



    But still, even without watching the ep, you know how things are going to turn out. It's an overdone plot no matter which way you look at it.



    And they're still falling into the traps of applying human features to aliens who have no need for it. The Pleakleys all look old in a human way, and the 'bride to be' that Pleakley's mother picks out has too many obvious 'human ugly' features.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • During the ending credits, Mark McKinney's
      name was spelled as Marc McKinney.

    • Pleaky's first name is Wendy.

    • Stitch put Fibber in the dryer to muffle his beeping. (The dryer was laying in its front side on the floor trapping fibber inside.)

      In the begining of the episode Jumba said that Fibber was only programmed to detect lies.

      In the scene, Fibber somehow lifts up the dryer and threws it across the room, but it was never shown how he lifted it. It just showed the dryer thrown across the room.

      Fibber was programmed to detect lies not lift up weight! How could Fibber lift up the dryer himself?

    • When Stitch put Fibber in the light, he beeped 3 times. It appears that he is beeping when no one told a lie. However, he is beeping at the lies Pleakley is telling offscreen.

    • After Jumba unravelled the t-shirt, it appears that it disappeared altogether. However, it actually fell in to pieces and landed on the floor.

    • When Lilo told Pleakley's family about city hall, her dress switched back and forth from her nightgown.
