Episode Summary

EDIT
Hostile Makeover: The Cluster infects Jenny with a microscopic nanobot that transforms Jenny into a Neanderthalish, robotic she-thing. The change is slow, appearing to be some sort of robotic puberty. Bolts appear on her face like zits, her voice becomes deeper, and she has growth spurts. Will anyone figure out what is happening to her before the changes are irreversible? Grid Iron Glory: While trying out for the cheerleading squad, Jenny catches the football coach's eye. She is quickly drafted. Unfortunately, the student she replaces swears revenge. And he's quick to deliver.moreless

  • HM: A nanobot, introduced by Vexus herself, turns Jenny into a mindless slave, gradually.

    5.8
    I like this one a bit more than other eps, but only slightly. In HM, Jenny gets transformed into a much more Neanderthalish vrsion of herself. However, Nick could have picked a better time for her to turn evil than during school pictures. Also, the ep felt somewhat short. There was some dialog that, while OK in its present form, could use some improvement. Another thing that irks me is that Evil Jenny could pretty much only growl. However, there are positive points, as well. One is the timing of Jenny's voice change. I was NOT expecting that. I also liked the time Jenny went thru 4 changes in just a few seconds. Brad's blissful naievete also shows in a slightly above-average manner. Tuck is good, as well.moreless

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Jenny: Cricky!

      This word was used by the late Steven Irwin from Crocodile Hunter, which he said a lot when he saw something interesting.

    • Geek: Rolling a many-sided dice.

      When one of the geeky football players rolled the many-sided dice to figure out what they should do in the game, he was playing Dungeons and Dragons, a typical geek role-playing game.

    • Vexus: Be seeing you.

      The hand movement Vexus does when she says, "Be seeing you," at the beginning of "Hostile Makeover" is from The Prisoner. Whenever they would say "Be seeing you," they would also make that gesture.
