    the first episode of the show and its SURVIVAL of the first day of freakin' school which I hate but I had to go. Ned and cookie try to get in a class with Moze but she wants to spend less time with then. And Cookie wears a coat and refuses to take it off then Ned and Cookie end up in life science and Moze in Wood shop.

    Then in lockers Ned get stuck next to the smellest locker than Lisa help out. Cookie gets late to P.E and breaks her locker and is the reason she has that wood door locker.moreless

    The first day of the seventh grade and lets not forget, the day where you get LOCKERS! The day where you meet the bullies, the jocks, the nerds, the geeks, and the gang of seventh grade. The day where you step in middle school.



    This episode was great for a pilot, and I noticed it didn't use the word "Pilot" as the "Pilot". Anyway, I hope this showk keeps up the good work, and makes wonderful episodes and seasons. Thanks for reading my review for the series premiere (pilot) of Neds Declasified School Survival Guide (N - D - S - S - G)moreless
  • Average pilot episode.

    It was an okay beginning episode. The show would get better as it went along. Really I kind of thought Ned was kinda geeky and short for a bit. But at that point, I had no idea he would change. So I can't compare his characteristics from then and at the end of the show at that time, if you know what I mean.



    So the first episode, we meet Ned, Moze and Cookie as they begin the first day of seventh grade. We find out they all promised to take the same electives with each other but Ned and Cookie find out Moze takes another elective instead. So then Ned and Cookie find out which class Moze chose, and put themselves in that class. In the end, there is only about 10 seconds left to confirm a spot in a class, and Ned and Cookie put themselves in a full class. The solution? They take one out and put them in. But the one they take out happens to be Moze. Uh oh. All that work for nothing. Ned and Cookie end up in Life Science - ugh. Moze ends up in Woodshop, which sounds cool. I'd like to be in woodshop, or at least try.



    Lockers is okay. Ned gets the nickname "Fart Boy" when he locker neighbor is Timmy Toot Toot, the ferocious farter. Cookie gets in a jam when he is given one more chance to make it to gym class on time, dispite having a locker VERY far away. And Moze and Suzie compete for the best lockers to attract new friends that are girls. In the end, Moze builds her own wooden locker. Very creative.moreless
  • A good way to start the show.

    In First Day it's the first day of school, Ned and Cookie discover Moze has taken a different class instead of the one they all wanted to take so she could separate herself from the guys. Ned and Cookie decide to try to get into the same elective as Moze with out her noticing. However Cookie accidentally takes Moze out of Life Science to make room for them and puts Moze into Woodshop. In Lockers Ned's new locker neighbor gives him a bad rep he searches for a new locker and gets one from Lisa. Moze tries to use her locker to make new friends that are girls, but ends up competing with Suzie. So she makes a locker out of wood. Cookie has a locker too far away form his classes and if he misses gym one more time he will be in big trouble with Ms. Dirga. Fortunately for Cookie he makes it in time only to be hit with dodge balls.moreless

    This first episode began the feud between Moze and Suzie, we find out that Cookie is half man/half computer, and we find out that Mr. Chopsaw's right hand is a fake. The first day was all about Ned and Cookie trying to get in the same elective as Moze. But in the endm they got stuck in Life Science...with a baby doll! In lockers, Moze and Suzie battle it out for the coolest locker in teh school. They go back and forth as the lockers get better and better. In the end, Moze makes a wooden locker from Woodshop and finds a couple other girls who laso like wood.moreless
