  • The gang gets hooked on speed pills, a man posing as an old lady starts robbing people, and Maria takes the whole jealousy thing to a whole new level that i was even shocked to discover. All in a days work at The Palisades Mall.moreless

    The episode starts off back in The Palisades Mall where my previous review took place. Since my last review though, Maria and Nicky have broken up which is an important little tidbit youd have to know to be able to follow this episode. The first major plot is when both Ryan and Belding discover that theyve had personal posessions stolen (Ryans wallet and Beldings anniversary gift). Security Prag Screech vows to catch the thief if its the last thing he does...LOL. Fast Foward to Eric and Katie who have been working double shifts at the gym and are physically beat and drained. One of the gym members offers them some "all organic" pills that will help you stay up during those rough hours and will even give you a little hop in your step. They start handing them out to other gym members and before you know it, it seems like everyone in the entire gym are acting as if someones hitting the fast forward button on a VCR...LOL. Unfortunately one of the members goes too far and takes too many and falls down in the middle of a work out with possible heart failure. Luckily he made it out alive but Belding does the usual lecture on pills and no matter how safe they advertise they are on the bottle it doesnt mean they cant hurt you. Back to the mall thief but first a little Maria story that literally makes me cringe. Up to this point her character was so-so in my eyes but she stooped so low out of jelousy in this episode that i lose what little respect i had for her pathetic, obsessed over her ex-boyfriend, needs to get a life of her own pansy ass trick. Didnt mean to go all harsh but Nicky and Maria broke up so theyre free to date whoever they want too. Nicky meets a cool chick and right off the bat you can tell Marias jelous. The nail in the coffin is when Maria tells Security Prag Screech that Nickys new girlfriend is the thief which leads to her getting embarrassedly walked out accompanied by Scratch like she did something wrong. Once shes cleared Nicky confronts Maria about her out of control behavior to which Maria acts like she didnt do anything wrong. Gotta give my man Nicky props in that he basically tells her to piss off and leave him alone rightfully so.



    The episode ends with the thief actually being a man dressed in old womans drag. Screech makes the bust (probably the first time hes ever done something right in his petty, pathetic life). All in all i liked the mall atmosphere playing a part again. Its nice to see the same characters working the same jobs and like i said in my earlier review, its a nice break from the high school atomosphere even though i have nothing against that either. The one thing that really stands out for me this episode was Maria's coldheartedness and no matter what she tries to do for redemption in future episodes i dont think itll make up for the shady ass moves she pulled in this episode.moreless
