  • Funny but weird.

    8.5
    This was a good episode of the show. The program had Dewey as the main plot star and I have to say that I found his story the most entertaining. It was really funny to see Dewey hide the weird kids and it was just as funny to watch the others threaten him to hide their location. I also thought that Hal's story was entertaining, but I have to wonder if some of the body builders are on steroids. The episode had some good writing, decent acting, except for the body builders, and some good writing. Overall, a pretty good episode. Thank you.moreless
  • I liked it!

    9.0
    Hal becomes the leader of some brainless bodybuilders. The special needs class runs away and they live in trees because Dewey leaves. He finds them and takes care of them. The bodybuilders find the Buseys. Dewey has an emotional breakdown to get back in. Malcolm and Reese are jealous of Dewey's good behavior. Hal gets a job!



    This episode was pretty good! The bodybuilders were funny! The Buseys are kind of weird. I recognized the girl from Phil of the Future. I forgot her name. I'm glad Hal got a job! This episode gets a 9.0 out of 10 from me!moreless
  • Lois convinces the school to take Dewey out of the emotionally disturbed class. Dewey has been helping them, so they are very sad when he leaves. They then run away and live in a tree in his yard.moreless

    6.0
    Dewey was so depressed after leaving the class and making the emotionally disturbed kids so sad by doing so, that he just laid around the house for days, and was perfectly behaved because of this. Lois became a nurturing mom to him because of this. I found this very out of character for Lois, as she normally gets furious with the boys when they aren't even doing anything wrong. Anyway, when the emotionally disturbed kids run away to live in a tree in Dewey's yard, Dewey is going to tell on them, but they tell him they are going to say Dewey tricked them into doing it if he tells, so Dewey keeps quiet and has to care for them in secret. Finally, they are found, but they care too much about Dewey to blame him for their running away. They take responsibility for what they did. Dewey is so touched by this that he looks at his mother, who has her arm around him, says sadly, "It was nice while it lasted" (meaning her kindness towards him) and fakes an emotional breakdown in front of the school guidance counselor to get put back in the class so he can help the emotionally disturbed kids again. Not only does he give up the good relationship with his mother to do this, but he humiliates himself in front of dozens of people. Though I wasn't a fan of this episode, I was very touched by Dewey's selflessness in this scene. But, I'm generally a sentimental person.moreless
  • Not that great...

    8.4
    Lois finally is able to convince Dewey's teacher that he does not belong in the special need class, and finally Dewey leaves the class and the Buseys begin to miss him, later on Dewey's teacher appears claiming that the whole kids have escape, Dewey discovers that they have been living on the tree and Dewey has to feed them, bath them, and everything. Meanwhile, Hal discovers himself as the leader of very strong and brainless guys, who he fears power must take control over him. It was sort of a good episdoe, was it was not that great neither.moreless
