    good episode, this was never a favorite show of mine but it did have some good episodes here and there and i consider this a rather strong offering, especially for a second episode. had some good gags and an OK plot, and thus it gets a B+ or so as a grademoreless
  • Drippin!

    "New Roomies" was part of the one hour premiere of Zoey 101 3 years ago. After watching the first episode, I thought the show was about a 7 out of 10. Nothing speical. Just another Nick failure. Then, I watched this. It went from 7 to 10 out of 10! This episode really proved that Zoey 101 would be a good series. And look at today! It's one of the most popular Nickelodeon and probably one of the most popular shows on tv. This episode was funny,serious,and just well funny again. This episode will always be remember, along with "Pilot" as the episode that got this amazing series started.moreless

    good episode Zoey 101 was only really good in season one, this is one of the eppys that prove it. New Roomies, so Dana,Zoey and Nicole all have to share a dorm room together, but Dana and Nicole don't get along at all leading to arguments and constant fighting. Zoey has just abouthad it with these two so she tells them how she feels and then they all have this huge fight and Zoey leaves the dorm and moves in with my favorite super funny nerd Quinn. Quinn seemed normal at first but then she starts doing all kinds of wierd things to Zoey and poor Zoey got to see some of her strange hobbies. In the end Zoey, Dana and Nicole all apoligize and become friends again and of course Zoey comes up with the brillant idea of how to solve the problems they've been having. This episode is also the one where Zoey gets her famous dorm key necklace that she made because she kept forgetting it. Overall this was a good episode, one of my favoritesmoreless
  • Dana and Nichole do not get along. Zoey gets mad and moves in with Quinn witch turns out to be a big mistake. Also we see Chase's feelings fo Zoey grow.moreless

    I know this episode was mostly about the whole Dana vs. Nichole but You also see Chase's feelings for Zoey. He actually tried to ask Zoey about but gets interupted by Dustin. Near the end of the episode Zoey ask Chase to go to the movies on Friday and Chase get excited. Later we see Chase with a Rose behind his back waiting for Zoey. Chase then see's that it won't be just the two if them because Dana and Nichole came to.I really felt bad for Chase in this episode. All he wants is to date Zoey and never get to do so.moreless
  • Dana and Nicole won't stop fighting.

    It took an episode for them to stop fighting. Dana and Nicole, yea that would be two great teenager girls who fight. It's obvious since the first episode. But it's like Macolm in the Middle, where there is someone in the middle of these two and that is Zoey. But whats the middle of Zoey.. QUINN! One of the great episodes with Quinn! QUINN! QUINN! Quinnventions, that is a funny title for such an inventor's inventions. My favorite quote is, when Quinn started testing Zoey's brain. Well that's all for my review of the second episode of Zoey 101. Peace otu, HAlo.moreless
