  • As asteroid is going to hit the Earth, and Alex discovers she not graduating. Guess who gets her way.


    I am so glad this series is ending, because it stopped making sense about three seasons ago. I mean, the writers must really hate the actors because they keep creating incidents to embarrass the hell out of them. This episode is noteworthy because it's possibly the lowest the show has come. It also proves that the writers are seriously out of ideas if both WOWP and "Ant Farm" both have a plot around an asteroid hitting the planet. The plot is about a so-called asteroid hitting the planet. What's ridiculous is that logically, Justin can go to the asteroid and back using his magic, but no, the writers have to create an illogical contrivance that he can't. The russos plan to go to the Wizard World, so basically, they have enough magic to create another world but not save one? Alex once again refuses to stay consistent; she perfectly willing to trash Justin's last cherished memento, but she still wants to save the world. In one more illogical and beyond unbelievable, Justin just "happens" to get his foot stuck and instead of just magically freeing it, they have to turn him into a starfish which just magically regrows its foot. What's even more stupid is that Alex's magic works just this once! The only and I mean ONLY saving point in this episode is that karma finally catches up with Alex and she fails to graduate, but in one more totally stupid one last second plot point that only the writing hacks at Disney could whip up, the school is destroyed and all the records are lost and the idiot principal failed to back the files on computer. How does this moron keep his job? What about the other 1200 kids in the school? This episode would have made more sense as a dream sequence for Max. Bottom line: this serires needs to be cancelled NOW and let the actors out of their misery. F-
