  • Justin shows his love for Alex

    One of the better Season 1 episodes. Most things worked very well in this episode. I liked the plot, I enjoyed the recurring characters that appeared he. The episode ACTUALLY made me laugh, something which WOWP usually fails to do. Anyways, its pretty good.

    Of course, the acting is great and the script wasn't as cheesy here. Yet, the WOWP special effects are just HORRIBLE. YUK!
  • Another great episode.

    I think this episode is funny and it was great how Alex turned her parents into guinea pigs that completely weird. Justin gets a B plus and he isn't really that happy with it and Max gets a C plus and he is really happy because he is getting better and Alex gets an F. She tries to hide that fact and it doesn't work the way it should. I think that the funniest part was when Alex's parents were guinea pigs they won the race against Max in the hamster bowling ball that was funny how Max has lost and with Harper.moreless
  • Say goodye to magic... mabye, forever....

    The Russos are doing their magical exam, and with power and determination, Max got a C, Justin got a B (Not really. He got a BIG A) And Timmy-I mean Alex got an F. She has to make her parents sign it, and, after a couple of hits, Jerry and Theresa are shunken. To RATS!

    Headmaster Abricomie's punishment? He DRAINS her powers! O NO!

    She tries receving in and, in the end, Justin starts helping her. Aww... bleh!

    Again, I kinda do NOT like the Jalax points, because... that's just... ick.

    Everything else, it helps Alex with her magic. Good episode, with a kind moral.moreless
