  • Nightcrawler is stuck with Forge thanks to some Zappy thingy.

    5.0
    This is probably the weakest episode of the whole season. Nightcrawler is really amped up in the annoying department, as he and Cyclops (who's too serious) have words. Kurt, you see, just wants to goof around and have fun. He's like Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Except not funny. What ever happened to the pious, timid teleporter that we all know and love? Anyway, he gets zapped into this other dimention, a sort of "middleverse" if you will between his own time, and the past, I guess. He's stuck with Forge (turned into a 70s teen) who is about as interesting as paint. A boring episode that at least saw more of the morally ambiguous Rogue.moreless
  • This episode has "filler" written all over it.

    7.2
    Scott is way serious, and Kurt is goofy beyond measures... Stop. Wait a minute. Isn't Kurt like totally religious, shy person? Not here, apearantly. Jean is doing her "I'm so smart, I'm so pretty, look at me" speach again. Oh, what a wonder. Rogue is making a mistake againg - thank God someone's not a perfect Mary Sue. Kitty & Spyke are not doing anything interesting. They are more of a statists in this episode.

    Main plot: Nightcrawler blows up an old labaratory, Rogue takes a gizmo, Nightcrawler tries to take a gizmo from her, gizmo shoots Nightcrawler, he gets swallowed in another dimension where he meets Forge (I'm 20 years late for curfew), Toad stoles the gizmo, gizmo swallows Mystiques office furniture and her new car, and so on, and so on... All you have to know is that good guys win in the end, and Rogue backs out of the fight - again.moreless
  • This isn't exactly what I would call an "X-Men: Evolution" episode.

    5.0
    This episode is a little weird if you'd ask me. However, it's nice to see the young version of Forge. Also, Nightcrawler starts behaving more like the "naughty boy" he was usualy portrayed as in the comics.

    And now, a question I haven't yet found an answer to: why is Rogue waiting outside the principal's office? What did she do?
  • Great Episode, but was I the only one that thought they went way overboard with Kurt goofing off?

    8.6
    Great Episode, but was I the only one that thought they went way overboard with Kurt goofing off? It just seemed out of character to me. I mean in the first episode he was really upset about making a mistake in the Danger Room, enough so that he was going to leave, but now he brushes everything off with an oh well. Just a minor thing really, but it did catch my attention. I guess when you have different writers on different episodes this sort of thing is inevitable though.



    I did really like the table dancing scene and the face off between the Brotherhood (or partial brotherhood) and the X-Men over the gizmo. I'm assuming that they're saving the real action for later in the season cause this one really seemed like more of a tease. The shows are really starting to click together now. I think once Rogue turns next week that we'll really start seeing some fast movement in relationships within the X-Men and confrontations with the Brotherhood.



    This episode did have a lot of really funny little bits thrown in, and Spyke is starting to blend in as well, I'm starting to rethink my whole dislike on first sight thing.moreless
