  • Another almost perfect episode

    Well since they are campers, why not make a camping episode. Both teams have to survive a night in the woods. Both end up turning into disasters. The Killer Bass are missing a couple fish as Katie and Sadie get lost and are seperated from their tribe. They get into a fight about something stupid. I really don't remember and I really don't care. That's kinda why the episode was not perfect to me. It was really dumb but I guess kinda necessary since one of those two had to leave eventually especially since they cost the Bass the win. However, the wrong one went home, why Katie why her. I know I made a big deal about the Katie/Sadie storyline, but this episode is still fantastic. There were plenty of great moments to make up for Katie/Sadie like Izzy the bear, Courtney/Duncan moments, and much more.moreless
  • Seems to be the most fun one to watch so far.

    The Sucky Outdoors were just great. My favorite part of this season is the cruel humor demonstrated by campers. Like when Izzy dressed up like a bear to freak her team mates of the Screaming Gophers. It was funny when Cody soiled his pants... TWICE! Dang, it was soo hilarious, I almost cried! Only when Izzy and an actual bear came along. Another good one was when Duncan was insisted to tell a scary story and at the end, he took out a hook and everyone screamed! Duncan started laughing as if it was Halloween and he was a mad scientist. It was like Mua Ha Ha Ha Ha HA!(maniacly) I started to laugh again. That was where Courtney told him that it wasn't funny. And, funny thing, the next Courtney ended up "cuddling" Duncan. It was interesting to hear Duncan say " Morning, Sunshine!" To me, it was priceless to see the look on Court's face to figure out that she was snuggling up to him. This was one heck of an episode.moreless
  • extremely good!!!

    this is exactly why i watch this show. this episode we really get to see everyones true personality. i also love when courtney and duncan start fighting but end up cuddleing each other. we also see geoff start to make moves on bridgette but ends up messing it up. this episode really reminds me of regular people camping in the woods and the stories they tell by the fire. hopefully the other episodes that come up in the season,in the u.s., will end up being great like this one or being better then this episode. overall the show is great and i hope there are more seasons to come.moreless
  • Friendships are mostly easy, camping can sometimes be hard! :idea:

    As a Bean Scout named Samson from "Camp Lazlo" will testify, it takes a special breed to survive in the wild. While Samson can tough it out for five seasons, 2.5 years, and 61 episodes, the Killer Bass and the Screaming Gophers were ready to call it quits after only one night! Heather has her sights set on Gwen, and she doesn't care who knows about it! But her grudge will have to wait when unforeseen events take place. Owen once again proves to be the best player the Screaming Gophers have as he catchs fish for the entire team. Not wanting to leave it at that, Owen decides to tell a story about how he learned to rough it. Every-thing he knows, he learned from his grandpa, and he was a real man's man! One time, they were even cornered by a 10 foot bear! Not wanting to die, they did the only thing they could do and made the bear D.O.A., with honors! Ironically enough, that's when Owen realizes there's a time and a place for tall tales, and it's Not in the wild! When a bear starts to roam the camp, Owen reveals he isn't equipped or prepared to face a beast. Fortunately, it turns out to be Izzy, who was fascinated by Owen's tale and wanted to play a joke! I might be jumping the gun, but I think Owen and Izzy are developing a crush on each other! :D But Izzy's antics attract a real bear, forcing them up a tree for the night! The Killer Bass have an even worse time! Katie and Sadie finally get in a fight when they get lost, taking refuge in a cave, Duncan creeps everybody out with the tales of a hook-handed killer, and Bridgette proves to be a jinx when she destroys their tent. In the end, the Screaming Gophers stick together, Katie and Sadie make up. But their renewed friendship comes at a price. The Killer Bass vote Katie off. Now its up to Sadie to carry on without her. Another winner! :idea: Enough said! ;)moreless
  • Campers have to spend the night in the woods... what else can go wrong??

    Okay this episode is by far my favorite. I thought it was soo funny when Owen said he killed a bear, and when a bear came, he cried for his mommy. That was funny. And I think bridgette and geoff are a cute couple, same with duncan and courtney. I thought it was hilraious when SHE was cuddleing with duncan, he didn't even go near her, it was courtney who went to him. And if you notice before the camera does a close up on duncan and courtney, you saw bridgette laying with or on geoff, i couldn't really see. And the scary story was classic...moreless
