  • An episode which sorta explores what Alex would be without magic- Still a MESS!

    Unlike most other episodes of WOWP, I like this episode for a different reason. Its not to see magic being casted, its to see what Alex would be without any powers. This episode had a good plot and good acting, much like always, and actually kept me going through the episode, unlike much of the show so far.

    I found Mr. Finchy to be the funny character in this episode. Good one
  • Even when magic is gone, Alex still manages to cause trouble.

    When the wizard wizard is experiencing some "magical difficulties", the kids are temporarly out of the use magic. Meanwhile, it's Fashion Week in Waverly Place, and Harper has the responsiblity of watching her mentor's latest fashion creation. However, Alex only seems interested in getting to wear the dress rather than being happy Harper's fashion career. Alex tricks Harper into letting her watch the dress for her and tries on the dress, despite all the odds. When she agitates Justin one more time (tipping over his tray of food on him), she ruins the dress (Justin hugs her). It's interesting how despite Justin's involvement, Alex realizes that the dress being ruined was her responsibility. However, Alex's careless behavior and scheming makes the situation complicated and puts them in one scenario after another. What I can definitely say is that Alex was being a little extra mean in this episode, she's usually not that disrespectful to Justin or Harper. Plus, her "moving on" thing got kind of annoying. You can't fix a problem you caused by avoiding it and not giving an explanation to how it happened so you don't get in trouble (that's where the cycle came from). At least Alex admitted her faults at the end. Another good part to the episode would be the fashion designs! Selena Gomez should really be a model; the newspaper dress looked better on Alex than it did on Cindy Crawford, though I did like the ballroom dress on her as well. The subplot with Justin and Zeke trying to flirt with models was good too. It's good to show that models aren't as dumb and super-ficial as the stereotype. When the models are playing dungeons and gargoyles with Justin and Zeke, it's like every nerd's dream!

    I am starting to notice a pattern here with this show: Alex gets in trouble. But unlike most cliched sitcoms, she is not filled with good intentions, in fact she rarely is. I won't call her the anti-hero, she is just something unique altogether. As a viewer we can see that Selena Gomez does a good job with the role and it is easy to see why this series became a breakout hit for Disney when it debuted in October of 2007.

    But it wasn't just a strong performance from her, Zeke and Justin were also amusing in their quest to play a nerdy game with models.

    Good episode from top to bottom.
