  • Best. Season Finale. EVER.

    9.9
    The season 1 finale of "Popular" may be the single most brilliant season finale ever aired. The entire series knowingly made fun of other teen soaps, but this episode pushed the envelope. The episode pulls out all the stops and throws in every cliche of teen shows for its sweeps finale. Taking it one step further, the show mocks itself by broadcasting in big letters every time it does one of these sweeps stunts.



    This episode is the ultimate "Popular" episode. It is everything that was wonderful and wacky about the show. Before watching the episode, you have to adjust your mind for what you are about to see, but once you do, this episode is well worth watching!moreless
  • This has got to be my favorite episode.

    This episode was one of the funniest I have ever seen. I really like the way they poked fun at other shows for always going with some sweeps cliffhanger stunt that has been doen before. So Popular one ups them by doing them all. From boy bands, weddings, funerals, Pregnacy, they covered it all.



    One of the best they did was the whole popular purge poll, made by the viewers to kill off one of the characters, and then in the last second after the weddings ruined and Bobbi Glass isn't dead after all, They chose May, who just falls over dead. Very very Entertaining.moreless
  • Disappointing doesn't quite describe the feeling I felt through this entire episode. To be honest, the show was never the same since episode 11 and I've seen nothing but a downfall from that point on.moreless

    One of my favorite things about the show was how it could make me bust my gut laughing in one scene and almost down to tears in the very next. The show had a way of compelling you to each and every character in just the first episode and instantly became one of my favorites... that is, until episode 12 where the show became a unrealistic and screwball comedy.



    The show originally was a tongue-in-cheek comedy and sometimes even dark comedy. We laughed at things that were not forced and you would sometimes have to actually watch to understand. There were occasionally a few slapstick jokes thrown in for the sake of a quick laugh but with Mary Cherry being the scapegoat for most of those laughs I found every one of them excusable until a certain point where it began ruining other characters.



    Now don't get me wrong, the show definitely held an interest of mine through the course of its run, but I quickly took note of dying humor. Sometimes there were dramatic and less-humorous moments of a few later episodes but mostly it just turned into a false alarm by the end of the episode. Not that I don't mind episodes that does nothing to contribute to the story, but for a season finale it upset me strongly.



    I never thought that the Ms. Bobby/Nurse Kelly dynamic of them being portrayed by the same actress ever made a fair fitting in the show but I accepted it as long as they didn't attempt to do much with the small joke. With this episode, they went too far. This was supposed to be the episode that brings us back to the dark and malicious comedy of bubble gum horror in the high school status quo. Instead, we spend most of the episode focusing on a "murder" between Nurse Kelly and Ms. Bobby.



    To simply say that change of pace upset me would be underestimating the dramatic change the show made from those different episodes. Flipping between episode 1 and episode 22, I can't even tell they are the same show from ONE SINGLE SCENE. And that was probably the hex for me. The fact that there was not ONE scene that was taken seriously. Everything was a cheap joke or an attempt at exaggerated satire. The show in its own way was always great at parody humor, but for whatever reason, the writers made the mistake of taking it to a completely new level.



    It's episodes like this that turn people off from the show completely. Hopefully, the writers realized the mistake made and attempt the give the show its once re-known serious status that died somewhere between ridiculous Mohawks and Emory Dick's trials.moreless
  • Absolutely Great Season Finale!

    This episode has so much drama, from the singing and dancing to the everyone thinking they murdered Bobby Glass!! This is one of my favorite episodes if not my favorite! Sam, Brooke, Lilly, SD, Josh, Carmen, Nicole, Harrison, and Mary Cherry all want to get revenge on Bobby Glass after she ruins their skip day so they give her this shake and even though she didn't drink it, when she falls over they think shes dead and they think they did it!! In this episode everyone is trying to stay calm and make sure the wedding happens no matter what! In the end with all the drama going on they all get to the wedding they are hoping it will run smoothly and it all boils down to the last moment! It is a great episode!moreless
