    This isn't one of my favorites but it was decent. Hal catches Dewey smoking and wants him to immediately quit, whilst Dewey wants Hal to quit drinking coffee. Can they work this out? Well, if Hal smoking and Dewey ending up drinking coffee is working this out...



    Reese decides he wants to fight Stevie, by making it fair, he freezes his legs so he cannot use them in the fight. But little does he know, Stevie has a little trick up his sleeve to win.



    Pretty funny but not one of my favorites, I think my grade for this will be a Bmoreless
  • Well, what do I say?

    The show actually was quite decent. Dewey is such a tool when it comes to catching a fad. Why he was smoking is beyond me. Why he would eat all of that gum is also beyond me. Good greif, if this show were actually reality, Deweywould die from eating all that gum. The show had some decent comedy and some decent acting, but the plot was rather stupid. My favorite parts was when Stevie beat up Reese. That was funny and it was refreshing to see Stevie walk for once in the show. Overall, I have to say that it was a decent episode. Thank you.moreless
  • Lots of things happening.

    Lois confides in Jamie while teaching him to talk. Hal catches Dewey smoking, so in order to get him to quit, Hal promises to quit coffee with him. Dewey and Hal have a hard time. Reese wants to beat up Stevie, even though he' a cripple. Stevie uses technology to beat up Reese. Jamie talks.



    This was a really good episode! I can't believe Reese numbed his legs! Also, Dewey smoking? What? He's like 10 or something. That's a little weird. I think smoking and coffee are both gross. I will give this episode a 9.0 out of 10!moreless
  • Great episode with some good character development. Hilariously funny as per usual!

    Very cool episode, I would have never thought Dewey would have started smoking?! Weird, but I loved the competion between him and Hal. Malcolm and Reese's storyline was great, The description from Malcolm of what Reese did to his latest victim was hilarious and the scene at the end was nice, proves that their friends in a brotherly kinda way :P



    Oh, and Stevie as the Terminator, I didn\'t expect that. Laughed my ass off.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The exoskeleton that Stevie wears is based on actual medical studies that are ongoing. Many different universities and doctors are working on assisted movement exoskeletons with a wide range of medical applications. The US military branches actually have some in test phases, being used on soldiers who were crippled in the line of duty.

    • It is revealed that one of Stevie's problems is motor neuropathy. Motor neuropathy is a nerve disability in which the nerves either cease to fire or fire incorrectly, which results in either no mobility or poor movement control.

    • This marks the only episode we see Stevie (Craig Lamar Traylor) 'walk'.

    • When Hal asks Dewey where'd he get cigarrettes he said "Hal's shop vac", which he claimed had 20 cartons in there! I'm sure he meant 20 packs, because think of the space 20 cartons would take up!!

    • Jamie's first word is, "shut up, " but no one heard it.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The game Malcolm and Stevie were playing looked a lot like (and most likely was) March and Conquer. March and Conquer was the game Lois, Hal, Reese and Dewey played while Malcolm was in the hospital in season 2's "Surgery".
