  • I really didn't care less about this completely useless and boring episode

    Hugh Norman was never one of the characters I ever liked in the show, in fact he was always irritating. This episode, we are supposed to feel pity for Hugh. I mean, who would??? Hugh is portrayed in the previous episodes as a FOOL (in Gandalf's term) There were only two good things about this episode.

    1) Alex did become a more warm-hearted person

    2) The Theresa joke where she puts a paper on Jerry's back. I mean, it was funny for us because was know exactly how absurd the whole joke is

    The giants, or so they were, did not look convincing at all. I mean, I understand that special effects aren't what TV Shows focus on, but they could've made it look more realistic than what it was. And what was the whole point of not seeing Hugh's adopted parents? What purpose did that serve??? It was no mysterymoreless
  • Hugh Normous comes to the Russo house with news that he was adopted and not a giant.

    This is a decent episode of Wizards of Waverly Place. There's this character named Hugh who was adopted by giants and he thinks that he is a giant. He just found out that he was adopted and he's not a giant and wants to find his real parents. This episode was okay. It wasn't that funny. The only part I enjoyed was when Alex shrunk the room. I thought that looked good. The thing I like best about this show is the magic. They actually make this look real. Some shows don't even try. That's what I like about Wizards of Waverly Place.moreless
  • Alex's friend, Hugh Normous, escapes from his family of giants when he finds out he is adopted. Alex, when she sees how upset he is about the situation, dicides to hep Hugh find his real parents.moreless

    I don't think it is up to the usual standard. I didn't find it as funny as other better episodes, and funny is a very important factor in a TV series. Usually I watch episodes loads of times, but I really didn't feel like it this time. Even though I know it's your decision, I feel forced to tell you that I DON'T reccomend this episode if the thing you are looking for is laughter. If it is morality you are looking for though, it is reccomendable. But for me, I honestly found this episode disapointing to watch, even though I hate to admit it. :(moreless
  • Hugh's Not Normous

    Not the best episode of Wizards of Wavery Place ever, but quite the funny one as it dealt with giants. The family's reactions to the large people was amusing, and Alex had me in stitches, which is so often the case. I cannot believe it took me to 2010 to discover this great show and how funny Selena Gomez can be, but I am watching as many episodes as I can as quickly as I can to make up for lost time.

    Wizards is a fun well-written family comedy and this was another strong episode of the popular Disney series.moreless

      Hugh: I'll tell you what's up. This!
      Justin: A cherry lollipop?
      Hugh: It's a hobo bindle! I ran away from home.

    • Alex: (to Max) You stay here! If my room is not fixed by the time I get back, I'm telling Mom and Dad what you did.
      (Alex bumps her head on the way out)
      Max: At least give me a spell to help clean it up!
      Alex: (calling) You're on your own, Jerkface!
      Max: Thank you! (starts waving his wand) "You're on your own, Jerkface!"

    • Jerry: Alex, your mom and I are very proud of the way that you helped.
      Alex: Wait a minute, what is that?...
      Theresa: What?
      Alex: That feeling inside my stomach. It's kind of warm and pleasant.
      Justin: That's called compassion. It's what happens when you do something nice someone else.

    • Alex: Hugh, I can't believe your parents waited until now to tell you you're adopted.
      Hugh: Oh, I always knew. I just always assumed my birth parents were giants too. And it turns out their not. I've been living a giant lie!
      Alex: (laughes) I like what you did there with the giant and the lie... Oh, I shouldn't be laughing right now.

    • Max: Justin, what is that thing?
      Justin: It's a wizard stretcher.
      Max: Cool, what does it do?
      Justin: (sarcastically) It tickles people.
      Max: Oh, that makes sense.

    • (Alex accidentally shrunk her room, and Max caused Hugh to destroy everything inside)
      Alex: My room! Max, what did you do?!
      Max: (To Hugh) You see how she just assumes it was me?
      Justin: (walking in) Hugh. Shrunken room. Alex, I knew you were up to no good!
      Alex: (To Hugh and Max) You see how he just assumes it was me?

    • Harper: (in the wizard-stretcher) I don't know Alex. Justin doesn't think this is a good idea, and he's better at recognizing danger than you are.
      Alex: Harper, please. Justin thinks singing in the shower is dangerous.
      Justin: That's because singing leads to dancing, and dancing leads to slipping.

    • Hugh: I just found out I'm not actually a giant.
      Alex: Oh really? I just found out people don't think I'm nice.
      Hugh: And I'm adopted.
      Alex: Okay, you win.

    • Justin: What was that ruckus?
      Alex: What ruckus?
      Justin: From upstairs, I heard a ruckus.
      Alex: Can you describe the ruckus, Justin?
      Justin: Kind of like a Max ruckus.
      Alex: You know you may be right. I'm going to go investigate, by myself. It might be too dangerous for you, you know how ruckuses can get.
      Justin: And now I have to go investigate.
