I have been a fan of the beloved Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place since the first episode hit the air.
The show is about a family who's 3 children are wizards. We have Alex
the middle child who is usually the one who is making trouble, Justin,
is the oldest brother who usually fixes problems, and Max, the youngest
runs around making quirky jokes and playing harmless pranks on his
In Wizards of Waverly Place, Season 2, Saving Wiz Tech Part 1, Alex
begins to feel neglected by her boyfriend Dean because he seems to lack
that romantic flair she is looking for.
Although she loves him, she finds herself attracted to a new guy named
Ronald Longcape Jr, from Wiz Tech who recently came to temporarily live
with the family while Wiz Tech is no longer up and running due to a
curse that filled the entire school with plastic play balls.
Justin however learns that Ronald's father Ronald Sr is responsible
for filling the school with the plastic balls. Justin also learns that
Ronald has a plan to turn Wiz Tech into a school for evil!
When Justin discovers Ronald's last name, he realizes that the boy his
sister is getting close to may be evil just like his father.
Ronald LongCape Jr assures Justin, and Alex that he is in fact good, and not evil.
When Ronald lets Alex know that he likes her, she freaks out and let's
him know she has a boyfriend! When Ronald meets up with Dean though, he
freezes him into a block of jello. After ridding himself of Dean, he
then transforms into Dean to break up with Alex.
After Alex gets her heart crushed by the guy she though was her
boyfriend, she decides to start school back in Wiz Tech after the
plastic balls are all cleaned up.
Little to Alex's knowledge, she is about to be used in LongCapes evil plan!
Usually I love every episode I see of Wizards of Waverly Place, but
this particular episode was just so-so for me. It had some good points,
and some funny dialog at times, but it definitely seemed to drag on.
Perhaps it was the sad depressed mood Alex was in the whole time?
Whatever it wad though, Saving Wiz Tech Part 1, was just okay. I'd
recommend it to fans of the show, and to young children and families. I
however would recommend skipping on the DVD that features just this and
part 2 episodes.
