  • How Lucas got his groove back.

    This episode is so funny, seeing Lucas, a whole new personality, that's a bit strange, he spiked his hair, now he has no glasses, which foreshadows his future role as Derek on Life With Derek. I like this episode beaus there wasn't so much Josie & more of the minor characters. Which is always nice to see, he asks out a girl, gets detention, and on top of it all picks a fight with the most toughest kid in school, This episode was very adventurous since the last minutes of the show there trying to find a way to reverse it. So suspenseful! Also the cliffhanger in the end, which was expected, Josie & Vaughn's gene papers are stolen by the janitor & he reveals they have an unusual trait in common & he sends it down a wormhole, that definitely makes you want to see more.
  • Underappreciated

    This episode is one of the early second season episodes that focussed on one character - Lucas - and explored a theme - bullying - linked directly to a science concept - DNA - and an analogy - a generally fearful person becoming fearless - without delving too deeply into furthering the series mythology or the larger story until the end, when Josie and Vaughn can't find their DNA 'fingerprints'. Also significant becuase this is the episode that introduces series favorite Stew Kubiak. A snapshot of middle school life that pretty much any kid can relate to - who has ever been bullied or had a friend who was. I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded. Everyone's astonishment at Lucas, especially Marshall's is played perfectly!
  • Best Episode yet. Very funni and cute.

    Best Episode yet. Very funni and cute. When Lucas' DNA changes and becomes more confident,"cooler", and becomes a heart throbe! (Which he is without his glasses.....LOVE YOU MICHAEL SEATER) And then Josie and Corrine are questioning if they like him.....but things happen..........and Lucas only has a short time to live and....yeah and the Science club has to fix it before time runs out and I don't think they can do it...without him helping because he is one of the more "SMART" ppl in the club and he can't help them so time is running out and they are still no nearer the answer so will "cool" Lucas die!?!?!?? find out WATCH IT!!!!!
