I was extremely excited to see that Disney had taken on another season of Wizards Of Waverly Place, and the new season took of with quite an interesting bang; Smarty Pants!
For those who have never seen Wizards Of Waverly Place, the series is
about a family who's 3 children are wizard's. Sort of like a modern day
Sabrina, only more edgy.
In this particular episode, Justin shows Alex and Max a pair of Smarty
Pants. Whomever wears the pants will know the answers to everything!
Alex does not think much of the pants at first, and they go forgotten
In school though she learns that her newest crush Dean is going to be
helping put together the gym for some testing competition that will be
going on in the school. Alex decides to help put together the gym with
Dean, but due to a failure of hooking up some sort of electronic
equipment the right way, a girl on Harpers team is electrocuted when she
goes to test the buzzer.
Due to the fact that a girl who gets shocked can no longer compete on
the team, Harper's team cannot compete against Justin's without an equal
amount of members on both competing teams.
Harper takes it out on Alex, and she sort of calls her stupid
but in a nicer way. Alex tries to make it up to Harper by saying she
will fill the place of the girl who won't be in the competition.
Instead of studying though, Alex decides to use the Smarty Pants in
hopes to win the competition against her brothers team, while impressing
Dean, and trying to make it up to Harper.
During the competition though Alex answers all of the questions correctly before anyone else gets a chance.
Harper gets extremely jealous because she wanted to be the one who
knew all the answers, and she wanted to be the one that everyone looked
at with admiration.
Without ruining the ending, (which is quite funny) I figured I'd get into how I felt about this particular episode.
For me Smarty Pants was just so-so. It was not horrible, but it sort
of irked me when Harper wanted Alex to no longer answer questions so she
herself could have the limelight.
Although I love the show in general, Smarty Pants didn't quite do it
for me. It had some funny parts, and the ending was pretty hilarious,
but this particular episode didn't quite leave me very impressed.
I'd rate this one 6 stars out of 10.
