Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A great show.......enjoyed it quite a bit.

    This was one of the best episodes that I have watched so far. The only part that made me shed a few tears was the marhc of Phineas and Ferb around the jail. Overall though, I liked the episode, as it is a change from the normal forumla of the show. I also liked how the show reminisced about the past where Phineas and Ferb both met, as it shows how long they have been good friends and how that bond between the two have been holding up. Other than that, I have really nothing else to say except that you will enjoy this episode for sure when you watch it.moreless

    My fave Phin and Ferb episode EVA!!! Includes, comedic songs, comedy, and a couple of surprise twists. I love Phineas and Ferb because it's hilarious. I love all the songs, too. They make you really laugh. My faves, Busted and My nemesis, are always going to cheer me up. I think that everyone, including adults, should get a good laugh at Phineas and Ferb. It always has exactly what it needs when it needs it. Perry is a good add, too. His adventures are funnier than Phineas and Ferb's!!! Phineas and Ferb is the ULTIMATE show EVA forever and ever!!! =)moreless
  • Do you think...

    A very touching episode this was. It showed Candace's sisterly love for her brother. When Phineas was forced not to have creativity and was sprayed with water, that one impacted me the most.I was like 'Man, poor Phineas, what happened to his voice?'

    Also, Linda was being a little too over-reactive there. I thought that the most she could do was at least ground them right? Not send them off to the smile away school or whatever. Im glad she came to her senses in the end. Phineas and Ferb are so sweet. The part where Phineas grabbed the screwdriver after Candace's dramatic (in a good way) begging. So touching!

    But you know what part made me uncomfortable the most? You know when it was Perry's dream after Candace's dream woke up Commander whatever was like 'We have to relocated you..' then he woke up and Phineas said something to him. Then, Perry looked around and smiled at Phineas and went back to sleep.

    For some reason, i think in one of the future episodes Perry is going to be relocated because Phineas and Ferb found him. Idk, just a hunch. Anyway, Really Awesome episode.moreless
  • Candace finally, finally, finally busts her brothers, or did she?

    I was so looking forward to this episode, and I enjoyed it very much.... up until the end. What a complete let down. I was wondering how the episode would go on after the boys were busted, but turning it all into a giant dream sequence was the second biggest rip off since miley stewart only dreamed Jackson and Lily had the hots for each other. So, do you mean to tell me, that those over-paid Disney writers could not have come up with a much better explanation, like say Linda promising to believe Candace from now on and then forgetting her promise, in some sort of a Simpson-esque click the same way they forget major events of their past. Three words for this episode: rip-off, rip-off, rip-off...moreless
  • Could Have Been Better

    In this episode, Phineas and Ferb FINALLY get busted, and they go to Smile Away Reformatory School, to get the creativity and imagination sucked right out of them. At first, Candace enjoys having no brothers for the summer, but soon she realizes she needs her brothers. So she and Jeremy embark on an adventure to try to save them. Will they be able to or is it too late?

    This episode was good. It had some nice emotion at parts {the song Little Brothers}, and some comedy of course. It seems more dark then other episodes, especially the last few minutes.

    My main beef is I think this should've been an hour. To me, it feels rushed, the last 10 minutes or so feel really rushed and takes some of the enjoyment out of the episode for me. They could have done more with Candace enjoying her summer without worrying to bust Phineas and Ferb or something.

    But the rest was greatmoreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • A Clockwork Orange

      The scene in which Phineas and Ferb are forced to watch movies about "age inappropriate building" with their eyes held open with clips is a direct reference to A Clockwork Orange, in which a young prisoner was forced, in the same fashion, to watch films of violence to cure him of violent behavior.

    • Back to the Future

      When Candace and Jeremy are driving the flying car the theme music from the movie Back to the Future can be heard playing in the background.
