  • Raven finally gets to meet other people who are physic like her! However, there are some problems that arise.......

    Great episode! In this episode, Raven kinda blew off her volleyball game and lost because she had a vision of Chelsea breaking her nail, and eventually someone else Carly knows Raven is physic because Carly is physic as well!! So Raven gets to hang out with people like her without worrying of being a freak or something but however, problems arise.... Meanwhile, Cory has to find a girlfriend for Lionel his pet rat who has been feeling lonely! I mean, it was FUNNY on how he wanted to find a dog or even a girlfriend for him??? But it is love that he finds and his parents are proud that Cory learns something REALLY important in life, love! But what happens in the end however, I don't quite understand? Finally, Eddie and Chelsea should have understood that if Raven wants to hang out with people like herself like that, friends always have to respect that. They aren't freaks as long as they DON't have a bad influece or something like that. Luckily everything works out fine in the end except for Eddie who got hot if you know what I mean!!

    Final rating: 8.0 to 8.5

    Final grade: Amoreless

  • Raven\'s secret id discovered by another psychic, Carly. Carly appears eccentric at first but proves herself trustworthy as she invites Raven to the psychic facility of Dr. Sleevemore.

    This is my favorite episode out of all 3 seasons along with the new epsiodes from the fourth season. I really think this show did not get the coverage it deserved. It was never shown as often as the other episodes, but the plot was so much deeper than anything That\'s So Raven has ever let out. This episode is gold. I always enjoy watching the episodes where the secret is let out or the main character gets more support. This episode had both of those and it cmae together quite nicely. This episode has always made me wish they did a transition episode, make the other psychics have recurring roles. However, the season finale is the cloest it has ever gotten.moreless
  • It was funny

    I like this show a lot I dont know why but I do. I think that the part where Raven gets hit in the head with the volley ball is so funny. I like the fact that the school put that clip of her on the web. I think it sucks that she doesnt tell her friends the truth at the start and made everything more complicated. It also sucks that they make fun of the psychic teens that come out in this episode. I dont like thye fact where Raven is floating and bouncing around towards the end, it makes no cense.moreless
