  • A bad start, but a great end.

    9.5
    So, when this episode first started I got a little mad; Mostly because I hate the Slitheen, and the humorous approach was terrible, even for a kids show. However, things got better fast. The "gift" that the Blathereen give Sarah turns out to be dangerous, and it infects Luke. It also spreads fast, spreading the seeds all over the neighborhood. It also ends with a very suspenseful ending. I cant wait to see the second episode! The verdict? It started off terrible, but the acting was nice and it really picked up the pace near the end. It also ended well.moreless
