  • How much more classic "Popular" could you get?

    9.0
    I really liked this episode. The reason I liked it:classic, classic popular. And classic teen show. Girl gets pregnant after her first time having sex, and gets her enemy to help her out? I do have to admit that the lesbian mom was a good twist. I find that popular is really episodic, and all of their story lines happen within the 43 minutes of the show. It's only really the relationships that last throughout the show. I wish that they could extend it though, 2 seasons just wasn't enough. Anyways, this episode fully encompased what popular was about, having the 2 story lines of the blondes vs. brunettes. And of course the focus on Gwenith's fashion. Definately one of the top 10 popular episodes.moreless

    • When the girls open up the shoebox and a glow shines upon their faces, this is probably a reference to the glowing briefcase in the movie Pulp Fiction.

    • Nicole: No. I think I have the same social life as Urkel.

      Steve Urkel portrayed by Jaleel White is a character on the 1990s sitcom Family Matters. The character was portrayed as a socially awkward nerd, with large, thick eyeglasses, pants held up by suspenders, and a high-pitched voice with a snorting laugh.

    • Mary Cherry: Martha Stewart? Ooh. I don't know. She'd probably make us turn this debris into patio furniture.
